Been seeing so many people on this forums say ‘omg I’m not doing it for ANY fame, I’m doing it because it’s what I LOVEEEE’. The people that feel the need to constantly repeat that they aren’t in it for fame/popularity are the ones that most likely are.
I’d like to clear this up too… fame is NOT a bad goal to have. If anything, it’s amazing. The majority of people who influence pop culture (singers, actors, dancers, TV show hosts, rappers, app creators, artists, top chefs, etc…) ALL aim for fame. Aspiring to be famous is actually a really good goal. I don’t get why people spit on those who aspire to be famous, as if it’s a bad thing.
I just wish people would stop being so fake and just own up that they want a slither of fame from the app. Let me list a few things, if you really weren’t in it for fame at all, then:
You wouldn’t be on those ‘How to grow your v2 account’ posts. - Someone that doesn’t care about fame even in the slightest wouldn’t care if their videos got 0 views. If you’re on a ‘how to grow your social media account’ post or something related, then you’re in it for the fame (not saying that you can’t have fun, but it means that there is a bit of fame-wanting inside you).
You wouldn’t feel the need to constantly keep repeating that you’re not in it for the fame - It becomes very obvious when you keep going round to everyone telling them that you’re in it only for fun and not to expect any fame at all, you’re a liar. Point blank, and simple.
You wouldn’t care about the algorithm - Seen multiple people that claim they have 0% want for fame/popularity, yet they’re the ones stressing about what the algorithm will be. Once again, if you’re not in it for even a slither of fame, you really wouldn’t care about an algorithm. You wouldn’t care about what amount of people see your posts. You simply wouldn’t care.
I have more points but I just noticed that I’m kind of ranting here…
Overall, fame is NOT a bad thing to want to get. The majority of celebrities you love and idolise today are DRIVEN to do what they do because of fame. Also, if you are in it for even a bit of fame, just admit to it… honestly… you aren’t going to get killed because you want a bit of popularity on the app. People try to convince themselves that they don’t want the slightest bit of fame, but they do. P.S not saying that everyone here wants fame, there are for sure some people that will be doing it solely for the fun of it, this message is aimed at those who say they want 0 fame/popularity, but it’s obvious they do.
