This song is an original song about the dark side of fame. I wrote it when Britney Spears was having problems with the media, my heart went out to her because the spotlight was on her 24-7. Many people said Britney deserved it since she made a bargain with the media and fame. Yes, it's true that if you're a creative person and you seek fame, you get the nastiness that comes up with it all, it's part of the territory. But it's still sad to see how fame can be so toxic.

This song is also about how the adoring public can live their lives vicariously through the famous.

Fame is like a big whirling vortex sometimes, sucking the celebrity and the public down into the celebrity culture. But oddly enough, it's what many creative people will seek because they want to share their creations. :)

I Wanna Be Famous

Verse 1

Damn the critics
And the talking heads
Damn the torpedos
Full speed ahead
Ain't nothing I won't sacrifice
'Coz you know, I wanna be famous

Wanna make you forget
About the war
The economy
Or your neighbor next door
Half truths are part of my life
And you know, I wanna be famous


Oh spread me on a tabloid page
Love me hate me
Feel some rage
But don't forget
Or make me go away
Gotta be in the news today

Verse 2

And if you're feeling blue
About your life
Just think of me
Going under the knife
Press loves to do me in
But you know I wanna be famous

And if your day makes
You want to hide
An escape for you
I can surely provide
Public loves to see me win
And you know, I wanna be famous


Because we do not care
We cannot see
How fame and longing
Take the place of community
