If you do, then do your own thing, and do it as well as you can. Forget about becoming a star. Some of the stars are not very good, they just had the right contacts or the right family.
Be true to yourself. Do good work and you’ll get a following of real people, even if you’re not on the front page of some awful newspaper. Don’t give up. Samuel Beckett said "Try again. Fail again. Fail Better".
