Well anyway; I can't wait to be famous. I can't wait to reach a point where I have a whole lot of people hanging on my every word. I can't wait to be in a position where I can positively influence the world and make a large difference in a lot of lives. I can't wait to be someone that will be listened to. Rather than being an intro to a rant that is actually also pretty true anyway. I think I have some pretty cool opinions on things but you need to be heard to be able to say those kind of things. Or be a raving lunatic people can't help but pay attention to.

See, instead of having people hang on my every word and do something pretty cool, when I get to that point every single action I take will be scrutinized. It'll be enjoyable to have people go through everything I've posted on social media, or here, and attack me for them. I don't know why it is but as soon as someone becomes famous and in the public eye they're supposed to be something above human.
|"More Human Than Human" is awesome, and highly irrelevant!|
Famous people aren't really allowed to make mistakes simply because they've apparently become role models. They aren't allowed to have a dissenting opinion. They aren't allowed to curse. They aren't allowed to do anything most humans do. They definitely can't ever make a mistake.
People make mistakes. Lots of non-famous people fuck up all the time and no one gives a shit. When you elevate people like that then it just contributes to the idea that these people are above you. They really aren't. They're people too. In my time I've talked to some people I would regard as being above me and I've talked to people of relative fame. They're very down to Earth people for the most part. They're human beings and they deserve to be treated like that. Being in the public eye doesn't change how they behave. It shouldn't either.
Stop elevating people and let them make mistakes. Let them mess up and laugh at them when they do, just like you'd laugh at anyone who makes a mistake.
Except Kanye West. Fuck that guy.
Well this kinda got all over the place. I suppose a general summary would be "Don't hold people above you, and definitely don't hold them to impossible standards, no matter how famous they are."
