Cause Celeb: Internet Fame

Wednesday, September 12, 2007
It seems that we stick to evolution and gravitate towards those based on what's big at the time.

The Old West - Who's the Best Gun in the West?
Plays/Theater - Tho art intriguethed!
Politics start up - Presidents in the Spotlight
Radio Dramas- It's all in the Voice...
Technicolor Movies- Hellooooo Movie Stars
Musicians - Duh.
TV; Isn't the base of it now, Reality TV in some form?

Our culture has developed a whole new obsession with this now.
US, People, OK!... Blogs (hi!), Perez, Celebreality, blah blah blah blah...

I guess it would make sense that now, as the internet develops - we'd start having internet celebrities - but i'm so curious as to where these people start and how they get launched. That Britney Spears freak sure got his 15 minutes of fame for being a retard [the main reason i'm not linking him again]. But I've noticed a few lately that are using it to their max potential and making a career out of it...

What a fun [overwhelming] job.

A celeb/human that's consistent, web-obsessed and happy to expose their every moment [pretty much]:

Tila Tequila:


Yeah Yeah... the Myspace Mistress that built her empire from another previous networking utility and is now, the Queen of contacts - and only second in friends tallies next to Tom. OOooh, Tom.

Since she's started -- she's done a few risque spreads, put out a cd and even made an appearance in Adam Sandler's latest I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry. I think we'd call her... a "charactor" celeb - in that - she'll ever be all about sex sex sex sex sex.

Lonely Girl15



Beginning in June, 2006 - this interactive web-based video series appeared regularly online. It caters to the life of a teen girl named Bree (lonelygirl15) - a 16-year-old blogger that posted video replies to viewers.

To collaborate, a Myspace page was created - but people started to wonder if this was a teaser campain for a movie (i.e. Blair Witch) or if it really was just about a teenage girl. By the time YouTube picked her up (Aug 2005), she eventually got outed as 19-year old New Zealand Acress Jessica Rose (who now stars on the ABC Series Greek. There is even a full list of Producers and actors associated with the show. DYI TV. The hype on Youtube helped spaw a spinoff - KateModern.

Lonelygirl was the first internet series to introduce product integration.

iJustine (Justine Ezarik):



Ok... I've been watching this chick for about a month.

I'm fascinated that a 23-year-old that is so pretty and so involved with a number of projects (recently competed in the Yahoo Talent Show, has her official blog, Mommy Pack My Lunch, - where she produces random videos and podcasts with her best friend, Desiree, has a live, 24-hour television feed. and also part of Xtrain, a tv/internet teaching series) will let you into her life this much.

You gotta give it up for the pretty girls that aren't affraid to laugh at themselves. Def. a girl with whom i'd like to be friends.

She came to my attention with her quick short on the new iPhone Bill (she is an Apple Afficianado) -- and then the rush of the videos piled it. It reminds me of the videos my little sister and I used to make when we were 13 - man, if we had had the tools!

She's too much fun - and I have to imagine at such a young age, and with all that drive - we're going to be seeing her around more frequently.

Stevie Ryan



This chick is way cool in my book. About 9 months ago, she caused quite the ruckus with her regular "vlogs" on YouTube - 6,000 friends bought into it (she's created multiple accounts to create personas for all of them), and a majority felt jipped when they'd been lied to.

Pssshhh, bitch please! Get over it. I love her!

She's a classic beauty - that is a little Gwenesque (No Doubt Days) mixed in with a little Tracey Ulman.

I don't know how big she is now, but her story was pretty spread out on the news awhile back....

********************************************************************

So ok, what. Be pretty? Or act outrgeous. Or both?? IS that how it worked for everyone else? i guess so..because most people are boring as hell to watch

Those are just a few of many - (notice they're all girls) and I'd say it's a pretty sweet way to get your name in lights -
