look up any word, like blumpkin:
An illness caused by extreme fame. A person becomes so utterly famous that one of two things happens to them: if they are assholes who are born to be famous (no matter how legendary they are) they will go crazy with diva demands. If they are nice, decent people, they will most likely die and the disease will kill them. It is only lethal in the case of good people. If they are self-serving morons, it cannot kill them.
Kurt Cobain, Amy Winehouse and Sid Vicious died of famoucitis.

People who have contracted famoucitis but cannot die from it include: Barbara Streisand, Mick Jagger and Christina Aguilera.
