According to a different story (http://CRUD MONKEYS!.yahoo.com/blogs/crush/dakota-fanning-crowned-homecoming-queen/500), she was not queen last year, just a princess on the court, which would make sense. I've never heard of a junior being homecoming Queen. I don't see any reason why she shouldn't accept the nomination to the court if her fellow students wanted her there, or what her celebrity has to do with it. It seems she's done a pretty good job of living like any other teenager and has managed to ingratiate herself with the student body of her school. I say kudos to her for being the kind of person her fellow students want as Homecoming Queen.
I also heard she was a princess last year. Why should she decline just because she's a celebrity? She's also a student doing the same work and entitled to the same rights as the rest of them. The other students didn't have to vote for her, but they did and she shouldn't toss that back at them.
Since she was voted to the positions, I would think that declining it because of her acting career/celebrity status would smack of false modesty. "Oh, I am already so good that some poor mortal should have this"

"Oh, I am already so good that some poor mortal should have this"Exactly. That is what I was trying to express,only you did it more concisely
How is it attention grabby for OTHER PEOPLE to vote you to a position?I'm still struggling to see why this is even a big deal. She goes to school. She's a cheerleader. She got elected to the Homecoming Court. And??
