Whether it's within your personality or not, suddenly you find that you want attention for some reason unknown. You get an indescribable feeling build up inside of you that makes you want everyone to look at you. What do you do to get this attention?
Only two things spring to mind. I could either fire a gun in the air three times in rapid succession (which may not be great because it wouldn't so much cause everybody to look at me as run in terror) or I could wear this hat:
On the internet, I institute a gimmick personality, and that always has fun results. Threatening to shoot people as a short-tempered but badass Southern Belle, pretending to be another gimmick personality's mother, or the nymphomaniac that... well let's not get into that one. I'm surprised she didn't get banned. I've done this stuff in multiple venues, but since trolling is against the rules here, I'm obviously going to be obedient. You don't have to worry about me shticking!
In real life, though, I never crave this kind of attention. The attention I typically seek is individual attention - for a specific person or small group to pay attention to me, to accept me, as opposed to total strangers. I really don't like being looked at and have learned to ignore it. I used to have this nasty tumor on the back of my head (genetic disorder, not cancer) that people would stare at and I would just not notice them. That thing got lopped off last November and it weighed TWO POUNDS. Seriously, that was a nasty thing, and it wasn't for attention - it may have just made me... not want it.
Change my stage name from Stefani Germanotta to Lady Gaga. Proceed to release a fun-filled, somewhat promiscuous album about boys, partying and breakups and achieve success. Still, I crave more attention. I dress up in zany and provocative outfits, the most notorious one being the meat dress. I absorb gays into my world. Gays are now mine. I release a second, darker album. I am not done yet. I battle off Madonna and send the hag back to the underworld. But yet, I need more attention. I become a motorcycle. I take picture of myself and it becomes my album cover for my craziest album yet. I still need more attention. Where will I get this attention from? New album coming out soon.
