Russell Brand on the Meaning of Fame

In an interview with Jeremy Paxman:

' I myself was seduced by fame, growing up in Essex, and I thought 'Yes, I want to be famous.' And now that I am famous, what does it mean? Ashes in my mouth. We should try to examine the things that we're using to make us happy - this pursuit of celebrity, wealth, status, consumption of products, ignorance of ecological and economic matters, and try to aspire to something more truthful and honest.'
