1I don't really know what a superstar is. I don't think you could ever become a superstar - they call you what they want to call you - but I don't think you could ever become a superstar because that means you have made it. You have achieved it all. I don't think I want to get that big. I don't want to blow myself out of proportion. That's too heavy a cross to bear.
