Welcome to my morning overthinking it brain.

DNRTFA.  There are a crap load of humans on the earth, and a crapload of different fan bases, and a crapload of online social media and real world venues to get famous at.

You can be famous to millions of people, and even get filthy rich and the vast majority of the world is going to say "WHO?!"   Doesn't mean they did anything particularly useful for society, or deserving of the general public's adoration.  It also doesn't mean that they didn't excel and work hard at their craft to succeed in their corner of the universe.

"Pardon him. Theodotus: he is a barbarian, and thinks that the customs of his tribe and island are the laws of nature."

George Bernard Shaw

/Maybe try not to be a barbarian.
