Andy Warhol said,”In the future everyone will be famous for fifteen minutes.” “You can’t choose the fifteen minutes but why would you be world famous.”

This quote was derived from Warhol who said it a bit differently , "In the future everybody will be world famous for fifteen minutes". 

'15 minutes of fame' is an expression generally used in reference to celebrities short-lived fame. Easy phrase to use to explain the reality TV culture which is rife these days. 

Interesting quote, Andy. If I could choose why I would have fame for fifteen minutes it would be for something positive which changes people’s lives in some way, not very original but the best thing to be famous for, I believe.
