The 15 Worst Things About Being Famous (According To Famous People)

Fame and fortune: don't we all want it? To be rich and powerful, to command a room, to have people fawning over us? Sounds wonderful in theory, yes.

Tabloid press is ruthless, your body and mind and every more are scrutinized to no end. You have an endless entourage, and it's hard to know who is your friend and who is being paid to be your friend. Man, someone should really make a show about that phenomenon. Bet you could get, like, eight seasons and a movie out of it.
