Narcissism, it's actually more than just being famous. Fame is just part of it. They have a really big ego and think so great of themselves. They always to try look good and want to be praised. They hate and can't stand criticism too. The thing is, this is actually a personality disorder. Ironically, underlying this big ego is actually a low self esteem.
