  • Stars should not have to pay to get on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. It's an honor not a new car.

    Any honor that depends on the payment of money is no honor at all. If stars have to pay for a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, who knows what will come next? They will have to pay to win an Oscar? They will have to pay for a favorable review of their latest movie? Of course money rules in Hollywood, but surely there can be some limits?

  • No, fame and honors should not be determined by the ability and willingness to pay a fee.

    No, fame and honors should not be determined by the ability and willingness to pay a fee. It should be completely separate from how much money someone can spend. This may be why Trump has become so famous. He can pay for his fame, while truly talented people are left behind.

  • No, fame and honor should be bestowed based on talent and acheivements.

    Fame and honor are important to society because they provide people with goals and ideals toward which they can strive. They should be used to recognize the outstanding talents and achievements of individuals. A person's ability to pay a fee should not determine whether or not they receive an honor. If a fee is required in order to receive an honor, then only those with the means to pay the fee will be honored. This would not be fair to people who are equally talented but are not able to pay the fee.

  • No, it should not.

    If this is the only requirement, it seems a bit silly to have a Hollywood Star. However, if it is one requirement of many it is not wholly rediculous as it seems that even if someone who is a Hollywood Star does not have that kind of money, than they should have enough fans to raise it for them.
