When people think of fame, images may spring to mind of either glamour and showbiz or pain and misery.

If there is a social purpose to the show, it’s to say that fame appears to be this bauble that people either covet or it’s this tragic thing. Well, I’m trying to show how ordinary and stupid fame can be. It can be thrilling but it can also be annoying.”
