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?

http://www.hulu.com/watch/35641#i0,p0,d0 Here is a link to an anime named Mushi-shi, it is very peaceful, it's kind of on the Justin Beiber side. If you have time, I recommend you watch it, and tell me about your thought.

    if my genius means I could contribute to the happiness and well being of millions around the globe.....I would have to say yes. Now, when and if someone were to knock at the door to my home and present this option, I'll revisit your question Simon.
