More than half of kids seek fame

More than half of kids want to be famous when they grow up, according to a survey by experience day website Into The Blue.

More than 1,000 16-year-olds were asked ‘what would you like to be when you are older?’ Perhaps it isn’t surprising that 54% of them want to be famous. The most popular role model is Kate Moss, followed by Wayne Rooney and Lady Gaga.

Comparatively, only 9% said they wanted a legal career, 13% wanted a job in the media and 15% said they would like a career in medicine, such as nursing or becoming a GP.

Into The Blue has seen good sales for its Superstar Singer experience days and Dance Lessons. Despite the desire to find fame, 68% said they wouldn’t know how to go about becoming a celebrity. 21% said they would try to become nationally recognised through a reality TV show such as X-Factor or Britain’s Got Talent.

Of the 54% who wanted to be a celebrity in the future, only 19% felt they had enough talent to make them worthy of fame.

Into The Blue has compiled a list of the top ten role models.

  1. Kate Moss
  2. Wayne Rooney
  3. Lady Gaga
  4. Nicola T
  5. Richard Branson
  6. Davina McCall
  7. Simon Cowell
  8. Paris Hilton
  9. Hugh Grant
  10. Alex Reid

Rob Holmes of Into, said, “The fact that many of the young people don’t know how to go about becoming famous is a bit worrying.”

Perhaps most people would think the opposite, as less numpty wannabes is probably a good thing.
