You don't have to be talented to get 'famous' nowadays. You need to act a bit desperate but not necessary do anything amazing...you don't even have to write your song or sing properly. All you need it seems nowadays is a PR / Publicist / Agent, someone like Max Clifford, who is very influential. He keeps his clients in the limelight regardless of what they are doing at the time due to his contacts.
But it's growing tiresome. Reality television has seriously cheapened celebrity big time. Real celebrities with talent needn't worry though.
Here's some examples. I'm sure Thailand has its equivalents, and I bet they are even more irritating.
Kerry Katona, she 'sang' with Atomic Kitten a good few years ago. Now a reality tv star showing us round her house several times a week....forced down our throats by Max Clifford and his team of publicists.
Katie 'Jordan' Price, I don't even know what she originally did. But it sure wasn't talented. Oh yes, breasts, hideous ones at that.
Peter Andre. formerly hitched to the above. She cheated, he got upset and now he's on about ten tv channels telling us how good a father he is and bursting into tears.
Pippa Middleton, sister of newly wed Kate, Duchess Of Cambridge. Apparently she 'accidentally' bent down while she knew the worlds cameras were on her arse while wearing her wedding dress, and the sun newspaper latched on to it. Cue her picture being forced down everyones throats, if you read the sun that is. But, she's an events manager whose business will now increase tenfold, she knew what she was doing. But after all these months since the wedding, a pattern has emerged, and we're now bored of it.
Cheryl Cole, formerly of the vocally challenged band Girls Aloud. She married Ashley Cole, he cheated, she went solo, got panned for miming on all her Tv appearances, including X-Factor, where she was employed as a judge. She's managed to avoid playing 'live' for so long that her public will surely suss her out as the fraud that she is...
I could add many more names but I don't need to, you lot all can add a few of your own here. Not just British, if you like.
When I was in America a guy told me to 'have a nice day' but I didn't, so I sued him
Not into Brit culcha, because i still live in Thailand, after 9 successful years. so pointless thread for me.
I suppose i feel the same about people who lived and taught here for a few years, then left. They just won't fuck off though will they.
Those that want to read whatever they can want all freedoms, but have to understand they can have freedom, but it must be within the law.
Yo pat...jealousy, while it may feel good to your ego...is nothing but harmful to your overall self image...and devastating to how you're viewed by others...
"You really want to save the planet?...the next time you see a hybrid car with a childseat... smash the window, remove the childseat and replace it with a box of condoms..." Doug Stanhope
I had a few minutes of ''fame'' starring in a few Thai TV ads in 2003/4, it sure never made me disappear up my own arse, expecting to get into clubs for free or anything. In fact nobody recognised me anyway.
Had more than their fair share of fame.
A byline in an obituary report would have been too much.
We could all sit outside on banana lounges discussing the best way to rebuild a 4WD transmission and agree, through shared stories of conquests supporting our assertions, that there is no basis to the proposition that those least assured of their persuasions are the first to condemn others for theirs.
^ Geordie chav, covered in tramp stamps and slag tags (sorry, tattoos) who obviously can't sing, trading on looks, married a footballer (Ashley Cole) or probably f**ked the right people to get to her status....The public will suss her out very soon.....
British Royals. Overexposed and done to death on every magazine.
As a matter of fact, anyone with the last name Palin. Well, Michael gets a pass, but any of the Alaskan trailer-trash Palins.
