When looking into universities or colleges always keep the following in mind: budget, curriculum courses, location, post graduate aid and reviews. Take your time when combing through university options and don't rush it, take your time when picking which one you want to go to. If you have any doubts about the places you're looking into feel free to call them up and ask away all your doubts. No need to be modest with the university representative, as long as you're well mannered they'll answer all your questions.
Good question, but I think you may have the order a little confused...usually you go to college, pick a major, and then look for a career. Or, if you really know what career you'd like, then that will help you choose your college/university and your major.
But it is good to start with your interests, which seem to be in art and music, both areas have lots of career options, but I can only speak to the art careers. There are lots of art careers: fine artist, illustrator, photographer, graphic designer, website and game designer, product designer, fashion and costume designer, interior designer, theater and movie set designer, plus many more. In addition, there are careers in art education at all levels, and careers in art museums and galleries. Many of these careers start out with entry level positions that have low pay, but that should improve as you gain experience. Many of them are very competitive, so be prepared to work hard and do well in your art classes, so that you will have a good portfolio to show prospective employers. As I mention below, having an internship experience in your chosen career is helpful in getting professional references, but also references from any other jobs are important, in that they attest to your qualities as an employee.
There are lots of resources available to research these careers. I suggest you talk to your school or local librarian, and ask them for some books and websites where you could find out about some careers in art that interest you. If your school has a career center, then start there. Also talk to your art (and music) teachers about your interest in a career in the arts and see what they suggest. Your art teacher should be aware of your strengths and could give you some specific advice.
As for college or university, the "best" one is the one that has solid art (or music) program, one that will accept you, and one you can afford. without going into too much debt. Check them out also to see if they offer any career counseling and internship programs that will allow you to gain on the job experience and references.
As for being a celebrity? That is hard to control, but my advice to you is to become known, in your school and in any job you might hold, for your strong work ethic, positivity, politeness, kindness, flexibility, honesty, and overall good citizenship. ;-) That is a sustainable and lasting "celebrity" status that we all can achieve.
Please find my suggestions below:
1. Suggest you can take Music as your major and arts as the minor.
2. Would you like to be a singer, musician, composer, etc.?
If you want to be a singer, you can start to publish your own video in social media
3. Practise makes perfect
4. Also, you can also continue your interest in Arts, eg do some drawing, design, etc. Publish your pieces online. Collect feedback.
Hope thus helps! Good Luck!
