Former reality TV star turned book author/fashion & beauty guru Lauren Conrad sat down with USA Today to dish on her new novel, ‘Fame.’ It features her ‘L.A. Candy’ character Madison Parker.
What is it about fame that attracts so many people? It’s like a drug. “I think it’s just simply to be adored. The first thing you think of is people blindly loving you, and all the perks that come along with that.”
On a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being the hottest, where do you put yourself on the fame meter? I’d be down at the bottom right now. I haven’t been on TV for a long time.
Do you ever wish you weren’t even on the meter sometimes? I think that I had a love/hate relationship with it. I felt like I should appreciate it, and it’s lovely at certain times. And if you’re able to inspire another person, that’s the great side of it. And I was able to travel. That I loved.
…What’s the hardest thing about fame, do you think? I think the level of criticism you’re under is never healthy. I think that’s why lots of people in Hollywood end up in rehab. There are the ups and downs. I was never a fan of the attention.
I can see that: people who enjoy/need adoration want to be famous, and yet there are plenty of people just waiting to tear you down! Lauren seems to have done a great job of staying grounded, though. You can read Lauren’s entire interview here.
