Welcome once again to Fandango’s Provocative Question. Each week I will pose what I think is a provocative question for your consideration.
By provocative, I don’t mean a question that will cause annoyance or anger. Nor do I mean a question intended to arouse sexual desire or interest.
What I do mean is a question that is likely to get you to think, to be creative, and to provoke a response. Hopefully a positive response.
They say that everyone gets their fifteen minutes of fame in life, but what if you were one of the few who became famous for a little — or a lot — longer? People think that being famous would be great, but would it really be great, or could it be rife with problems? With fame comes riches, and perhaps never having to worry about paying your bills anymore. But would any amount of money make it worthwhile to sacrifice your privacy, put up with paparazzi, and wonder if people wanted to be with you because of who you are versus how rich and famous you are?
So this week’s provocative question is this:
If you could, would you want to be famous if it meant sacrificing your personal life and privacy? Why or why not?
If you choose to participate, write a post with your response to the question. Once you are done, tag your post with #FPQ and create a pingback to this post if you are on WordPress. Or you can simply include a link to your post in the comments. But remember to check to confirm that your pingback or your link shows up in the comments.
