This was just a random shower thought I had. There's always that question of wanting to be rich and famous in life but personally, I would rather be rich and unknown than be famous. Mainly because I value my privacy. After all Matt Mercer stated on his twitter that thanks to his web show(Critical role) becoming as big as it is, his privacy has dwindled. Meanwhile, Gavin Free's home was invaded by an attacker who wanted his girlfriend. Both sound scary.

So I am settling with just being rich because I can live comfortably, go to as many cons as I want to, own nice things, learn a lot of things, help my friends, and donate to charity. With being famous, it would just be way too much pressure to be perfect in the public eye. Everyone would judge me by what I say, what I think, what I like to do, etc.

when it comes to being famous, develop the attitude beforehand, careful what you share and fences make great neighbors.

Being famous would suck. I'd take rich and unknown everyday over rich and famous.

Why not both?

I rather become famous in a way where I am known by only some people, not the entire world.

They kind of go hand in hand...

I will select wealth, as I can finally help the people who will need assistance then leave America to live in isolation. If only I can obtain a vast amount of money for that purpose.

Definitely I would take rich over famous any day without exception. I just don't think I can handle the pressure that comes with fame. And then by being rich without the fame, it's much easier for me to stay out of the limelight. Not to mention, I can buy quite a lot of stuff with little effort. Rich beats being rich and famous as being famous means you realize that a private life isn't so easy to get.

The last thing i'd want to be is famous because you either die a legend or live long enough to become a registered sex offender.

I'll take the monies instead

Famous, so I can have more social power and spread the word of purity. It would essentially come with wealth, as well, since I could sell stupid things or be a streamer or something and get large amounts of donations.

Fame has its power, and can be used to great effect by the right sort of person. I'm not that sort of person. Wealth would serve me better.

This,

To add-on: I would use the privilege I had of being famous to inform the masses and be a highly political opposition citizen criticizing the constant corruption and murder about the current political parties. I want everyone to imagine what the world would be like if Celebrities paid as much as equal attention as we do to them, to IDK...our elected officials perhaps?

Kim Kardashian gets almost 1 million likes for posting a picture of her feet. Do you know the kind of power celebrities truly hold? Regardless if you're Rich or Famous, the higher the social latter you climb the bigger of a responsibility you have to ensure your fellow man/woman is being treated fairly.
