Your die-hard fans, that is the fans who are under the mistaken impression it was ever about something more than the music, turn on you instantly the minute they realise you're in fact not a god, but a mere mortal.

I made this topic up several months ago, and it is a humorous topic--at least MY post is.....then, some smartass flamers got on it, derailed it, and essentially ruined this basicly good topic.
Since it has been buried for 6 months maybe fresh people could put in some potentially funny stuff.
Just try to overlook the smartass posts, and concentrate on the humorous ones, if you can.

You are sooooooooooo popular that instead of your Mom, Aunt, and old-maid sister answering your fan mail a couple days a week, you have to hire at least 2 dozen people on a full-time basis!

If you are a female Star thousands of lonely teen-age boys send you flowers, cheap jewelry, offer you undying love, and want to marry you.
