Sitting in front of TV screens at 5 years old.

Watching them dance. Watching them sing. Watching them act.

I just want to be famous.

 

Extra days at the bar only 10 years old.

Turn faster.

Jump higher.

Split bigger.

I just want to be famous.

Dances. Birthdays. Family dinners.

I can't I have practice. I can't I have practice. I can't I have practice.

I just want to be famous.

 

All nighters in the studio 15 years old.

Write faster.

Sing higher.

Perform bigger.

I just want to be famous.

Parties, tests, sports.

I can't I have to rehearse. I can't I have to rehearse. I can't I have to rehearse.

I just want to be famous.

 

Spending hours staring at myself in the mirror 18 years old.

Lose weight faster.

Cheekbones higher.

Butt bigger.

I just want to be famous.

Dates, interviews, entry exams.

I can't I have an audition, I can't I have an audition, I can't I have an audition.

I just want to be famous.

 

Spend my weekends at competitions

Dance.

Perform. Smile.

I just want to be famous.

 

Spend my nights doing shows.

Sing.

Perform. Smile.

I just want to be famous.

 

Spend my breaks filming.

Act.

Perform. Smile.

I just want to be famous.
