* In ''Literature/TheBible'': Jesus deals with this problem among the religious people in His Sermon on the Mount in [[Literature/TheFourGospels the gospel of Matthew]] by pointing out three things: (1) don't announce your doing good deeds before men with trumpets or "let your left hand know what your right hand does" because the only reward you'll get is from men, not from God; (2) don't pray in public in order to garner public attention unto yourself, for the same reason; and (3) don't draw attention unto yourself to the fact that you are fasting, also for the same reason.

* The narrator in {{Music/Amaranthe}}'s "Drop Dead Cynical".
--->''I need attention, feed on my addiction''
--->''I want the action, satisfaction''
* "Angel On Fire", from {{Music/Halsey}}'s second album, is a somewhat tragic example, presumably drawing from Ashley's struggles with bipolar disorder.
--->Nobody seems to ask about me anymore
--->And nobody ever cares about anything I think
--->Nobody seems to recognize me in the crowd
--->In the background screaming, ''everybody look at me!''

* In the subculture and genre of VisualKei, attention whoring is used as an artist promotion tactic. It was more common with early artists and artists from that era, as, in TheEighties and early in TheNineties, artists ''had'' to promote themselves rather than work via established labels, establishment PR agencies, and the like -- and it became common in the era to do stuff like appear in public fully costumed, stage a public unlicensed live solely for the purpose of attracting media attention and controversy, start a BarBrawl with another band or trash a hotel or venue, get on the news, real life spam your band's stickers and name everywhere you could, claim to be a supernatural creature, do something offensive in public, etcetera. It's become less common as of TheTurnOfTheMillennium and TheNewTens, as then, visual kei artists (especially established acts) don't have to self-promote as much, can be promoted by established agencies if they can afford it, and the like, and that such behavior is far more often shunned ''even by fans'' than it used to be.
