Tom Cruise is Tom Cruise Crazy

Just be glad it's him, not you

If you had Tom Cruise's troubles

You might be Tom Cruise Crazy too

You'd flash your big white shiny smile; buy expensive shoes

But you'd be the only man on Earth

Who couldn't enjoy Tom Cruise!
—"Tom Cruise Crazy," Jonathan Coulton

 Fame lost its appeal for me when I went into a public restroom

and an autograph seeker handed me a pen and paper under the stall door.

--Marlo Thomas

And now the tabloids use your face

To document your fall from grace

And they tell you that that's just the way it goes...

Just the way it goes...
—Just Jack, Starz in their eyes

What of fame?

Everyone knows your face, the world screams your name

And never again, are you alone..//

Living on a lighted stage

Approaches the unreal

For those who think and feel

In touch with some reality

Beyond the gilded cage

Cast in this unlikely role

Ill-equipped to act

With insufficient tact

One must put up barriers

To keep oneself intact
