    I'd much rather be wealthy than famous. That way, I would still know who my real friends are. I have heard the stories of celebs not even being able to take their kids to the mall or to restaurants because of fans' reactions. I would personally like to fly under the radar, but that's only my opinion.

    Absolutely not -- rich and anonymous sounds great to me. I don't like people in general, I don't like being bothered by people who are not my family and friends, and I'd much rather be able to disappear in a crowd.

    I only want to be famous under a pen name. This way, I can be a famous writer that everybody wants to read and I can reap the rewards of wealth that comes with it!

    I don't want to be famous. I'm an introvert and prefer to be as anonymous as I can.

    Yes, but not a recognisable person, that way I could get a good seat in a restaurant, without getting hassled.  Would also like to be famous for actually achieving something, not for telling tales on someone / getting my kit off (as you can see my profile photo  you probably realize that wouldn't make me famous anyway lol)
