    wasted on you

    Hi

    One guy said to a musician: Rock stardom is wasted on you.

    --- Does it mean he thought the musician didn't take advantage of being famous as a rock star?

    Maybe it also means: he takes being a rock star for granted, he does not really appreciate it.

    Yes. Same thing, really. It also means the star doesn't take advantage of stardom.
