What do the people who live in the Sahara Desert live in?
wool tents if they are nomads otherwise mud huts
That depends what you mean by famous people. The Tuareg people live in the desert and are famous in movies, and monks/nuns of some religions live by themselves in the Sahara as a vow of silence. But no, pop-stars, classical music composers, and Harrison Ford (Prince of Persia) do not usually live in the desert.
