    If you ask me, I'd rather have money than fame.

    How about the rest of you.  What's your motivation?

    Living comfortably and no financial stress or worries, or the sheer adulation of fame?

    I would chose money over fame, because if your famous there is normally someone out to kill you for something.

    The problem is you can't have money without fame 99% of the time.

    money! being really famous, in my opinion, would very much be a hindrance to living life.

    Money over fame. fame nowadays can get you in trouble as your being followed everywhere.

    Neither. Good health, a room to grow food, and the love of my man and my family. Money is only as good as the paper it's printed on, which right now is not worth much. big_smile

      So true. Without good health, you won't be enjoying either fame or money.

    Fame begets money, does money lead to fame?

    A little of both--enough to bask in them and be happy but not enough to grow a big head and live on cloud 9. There's no such thing as cloud 9, right?

    I don't think cash and fame can exist in perfect harmony.

    It all depends. I lean more towards money, but if the fame is a good fame then i would like a little bit of both. If the fame is...Paris Hilton, or Lindsay Lohan fame then no thanks.

    Definitly money, fame can lead to all sorts of problems. With money you can build yourself up to lead a comfortable life, but I think it would be too stressful to be famous

    Money not fame. Money can be used to do good for the world, fame means paying a huge price in loss of privacy.

    Honestly, I don't want either.

    I mean, I know I sound like a jackhole for saying so...but fame and fortune, if it arrives at my doorstep, I want to work hard for it.

    Fame gets you people following you everywhere you go, and I don't need to have someone wanting my autograph every three seconds.

    Money, really, is just a means to an end. I just need to eat, have clothes on my back, be able to play a little old skool video games, pick up the occasional movie, have access to the internets...

    ...and have a space to create. I have very little $ now but I am quite content. I'm only working hard at this point to help out others around me and to pay off many of my debts.

    I suppose if I had lots of money I could go travel the world...but without all the friends around me (off and online) it just wouldn't be fun. smile

    Sincere for Three Seconds,
