Would you rather be the next Micheal Jackson (more likely to be miserable). Or the next Justin Bieber (still able to make a lot of money)?

Micheal seem to be miserable all his life, he spent that last years of his life trying to beat the young genius image that he once was.
Justin seem to be more happy, because he is too smart to know people are talking behind him.
Those are two equal option. No choice is better than other. I think both are the same. It's just the other form of life. But what would you rather choose, and why?

    A good question to ask is:
    If someone can find happiness by ignoring the truth, is that smart?
