“…. In the world where performance is the key to fame and the body its most direct expression, only trivial aspirants aim to be beautiful. The real challenge is to be ugly and grotesque, for then, if you win, you win big. If you’re accepted, it must truly be for yourself.”
Braudy, Leo. THE FRENZY OF RENOWN: FAME AND ITS HISTORY. New York: Vintage Books, 1997. Print. 582.
