Ryan Seacrest
To the everyday person, it seems like having a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame is completely unattainable. Yet it may not be that hard to achieve even if you have a minimal amount of fame.

While I'll admit that the willingness of these groups to play every major outdoor amphitheater each summer showcases their tenacity, it doesn't exactly work wonders for their dignity. After a while, playing to half-empty audiences of drunken suburbanites has to ...
