Famous

The celebrity or the fame, are attributes of well known people and they have a great attention by people and the press.
A famous person may not be a celebrity, for example a politician, he only has fame for his job, but he hasn't done anything to call the attention of the public and he isn't probably considered a celebrity .
The question is whether fame is goord or bad.
The disadvantatges of the fame are mainly based on the privacy of life, because every step outside your home is public. Any misinterpreted action can end up with a disastrous result. Morever, because of that popularity, in crowded places harassmat will be unavoidable.
The advantatges are  simpler and easier to see, as you will be loved, praised and admired by fans. Also it is said that it is easier to get rich.
After reading the positive and negative things that bring fame, my personal opinion is that it is bad, since I am a person who would be over whelmed if this were my situation.
What do you think?
