I would most certainly choose being rich. I don't need fame to live a comfortable life :)

While it is often stated that it is most difficult for a rich man to enter heaven, I would think that it is equally if not more difficult for a famous man. That being said, I would rather be rich, maintain some of my privacy and hopefully be generous with my wealth.

That is exactly what rich people should do...be generous with their wealth. Hopefully this will be a better world if rich people would do that.

i am sure i will choose being rich. also if you are famous, you will be rich soon. famous people have many trouble, so rich is enough. my purpose is making $100000 in my life, it is enough for me to live a comfortable life in jiangxi, china.

I would rather be rich than famous, fame cannot lead you to the top. Fame can't by you necessity, fame can make you publicly owned. I wanted a private life doing things i could, where financial freedom is there. I don't wanna be a criminal....but if you compared famous criminals to rich criminals, rich criminals can get a way with it for in reallity, in some country, when money talks....rich criminals can be freed. While famous criminals will only be remembered yet short-lived.

I would love to be rich, I would NEVER want to be famous, your life is never your own, hunted down by the papparazi 24/7 everything you do is monitored or plastered over the papers! You couldn't live a normal life, all your problems or anything you do wrong the world will get to hear about! No definitely RICHES for me!

I'll choose being rich. But I won't be selfishly rich, I would be reasonably rich. I'll use it to help end poverty. I donate money to charity, to hospitals, give food and shelter to the poor. And probably build up a school for people who can't afford to study.

I would rather be rich than be famous. At least you can enjoy youself on the street and your privacy and not having the need to be at the best behave when you are in public and need to watch what you do in the public.

well i wanna be rich and i dont care if i am known or not , rather i wont like to be famous because that involves losing privacy and all and also there is a constant media attention and they make life fussy , so earning a lot is good as i like to spend it all .

MOst of the times rich and famous goes hand to hand. But it is true that person can be famous also in bad way. I don't think I want to be rich and famous. Monay changes person and I want to stay the way i am. I think money doesn't like when you have friends. And I love my friends.
