It's easy to be "public", we see it all the time and there are folk out there who need to be in some sort of spotlight or the apparent "Ringmaster" of some contrived circus. It's the crowd that you will live or die by as they say on the stage. Maybe it's something that was missing in childhood, a traumatic social experience, or just an inner loneliness. Who knows.
