You get your first hit when you get a little bit of attention.
Then, you start craving it more and more.
That high you got the first time…
you need that again and again.
So, you start thinking of ways to get more.
You start selling bits and pieces of your soul.
Then you see others just like you.
What they do starts to take over your mind.
Next thing you know, you are addicted and your mind is completely gone.
FAME can be a horrible drug to overdose on.
I def saw myself wanting to be addicted to FAME at one point.
I craved the 25,000 followers and the attention that came with it.
But in this new day and age,
social media being the way of self expression,
and random people doing the most outrageous things to get seen:
EVERYONE WANTS FAME
The high that people receive when everyone knows their name is better than any form of weed or cocaine.
But, what happens when FAME starts to take over your mind?
What happens when you start being controlled by FAME?
What happens when you lose your FAME and have to turn social tricks to get it again?
Why does everyone, who are actually no ones, chase FAME?
I started to wonder…
Why is everyone trying to be the STAR?
When I started my site in 2009, I could have been a real scandalous nigga.
I could have been fucking Baller Wolves and exposing them,
talking crazy shit about people for shits and giggles,
and even do outrageous things for attention.
I knew that I did not want that.
I wanted something more.
I wanted respect.
Those scandals are cool for some, but they are only temporary.
I will admit that I wanted the FAME that comes with being a great writer and personality.
I also wanted the FAME that came with having a story to tell and people wondering who I was talking about.
But I also wrote because I wasn’t chasing FAME, it was really my PASSION.
I am not getting paid for writing on this site, YET I still enjoy doing it everyday.
That is PASSION.
I just want to be taken SERIOUSLY.
FAME comes once you get the RESPECT.
Sadly, a lot of people are only chasing 15 minutes of lights camera action.
They yearn for that “Kim Kardashian” type of attention.
Sadly, they act like buffoons, get overexposed, and we move onto the next like we did so many other attention whores.
In this industry, I am around a TON of non-factors.
Ones who only do what they do just to be “stars”.
They aren’t passionate about their careers… or lack their of.
They are just trying to be bigger than they really are.
The problem is, they have no personality to carry it on further.
Only besides looking good and dressing really nice.
They burn so many bridges (with the factors) that they end up falling harder than they rose.
I started to think about FAME and the people who chase it.
Have you noticed the common theme with them all?
They open their mouth and remove all doubt of why we were interested in the first place.
They actually show us that they aren’t everything we imagined or fantasized.
They are actually boring people who have no “it” factor.
Yet, we always fall for the same tricks.
So I had to ask you, my little FAME Foxes, Hybrids, Vixens, and Wolves…
