Play • 15 min

Journalist SuChin Pak (co-host of Add to Cart) has been reporting on TV since she was 16 years old. If you watched MTV in the early 2000s, you saw her just about every day, interviewing the who's who of pop culture and music.

Those celebrities, the ones who grace the silver screen and flood the airwaves with catchy tunes that burrow into your brain and never ever leave—are those people actually more interesting than the rest of us?

A few curiosities you’ll uncover in this episode:

  • What it’s really like at the MTV Video Music Awards exclusive after party
  • How fame distorts a person’s reality (and the reality of those around them)
  • Does fame stunt a person’s personal growth?

Sean Combs (aka Puff Daddy, aka Puffy, aka Diddy) is one of the richest musicians, with a net worth of over $820 million. Now that’s someone who knows how to work their fame.
