Results for - FAME!

1. With websites like YouTube and Vine, anyone can become 'famous' these days. You can earn a six figure income and acquire a huge fanbase from doing something as simple as lip syncing in your bedroom to creating a 6-second looping video. How does this make you feel? Please check off as many statements as you agree with.

I think it's great that any average Joe has a shot at becoming a star.

It's ridiculous! People with actual talent can't seem to catch a break, but these bozos get famous for nothing?!

It makes people lazy, and makes them think they can take a shortcut to fortune and fame without working hard.

3. The Kardashians argue that it's not their fault if people find their lives interesting and enjoy watching them. Khloe Kardashian in particular has stated, "None of us think we have talents. I think it's more of a challenge for you to go on a reality show and get people to fall in love with you for being you." What do you think of her statement?

She has a point. I can agree with that.

It's a load of baloney. Her 'job' is just a lazy, easy way to make money.
