LOL, you guys still getting suckered by that? It's the oldest celeb trick in the book. When they have a new product (album, book, movie, makeup,
etc) they ALWAYS come out saying something crazy to get your attention to...drumroll....SELL THEIR PRODUCT.
President Bush, quite for almost the whole time he had been out of office, then all of sudden he comes to surface with these remarks about such and
such, but at that same time he was also releasing his book. Now, you don't hear from him anymore. Same thing with Laura Bush and her "thought we
were poisoned at a dinner back in 2006". Now you never heard this in the news back then at the time. The way she made it sound, it sounded like a
pretty big deal. Truth is, it probably never happened because if it did it would have been on the news. She probably just made it up to get
publicity so she could sell her book.
Brittany Spears. Queen of Pop for years was loosing her title to other rising stars. At the same time she was also getting older. Bad public
relationship, kid court battles, you name it. All of it was ruining her career. So, she decides to release a new album. What does she do to gain
her glory back? She acts the role of a nut. Is it bad? Yes, but did it keep her in the news? YES. Remember, Bad or Good Press is GOOD PRESS. NO
PRESS=NOBODY. Average sheep, no one, blah, etc. the thing that destroys a celeb most. So they will come out and say or do whatever it takes to get
your attention, but only while they have a product to sell. Notice how you hear nothing of Brittany these days? All of the Brittany antics that
plagued the news for months suddenly ceased after her album was released.
Kayne West. How many crazy things has he done? All of it was around the time he had his big album releases.
It's the same thing when East and West Coast Rappers go to "War". The whole time they are laughing on the phone across state cutting up about how
dumb people are and how much money they are making.
Trust me, they only do this stuff to get their name out there so you will buy their product. If the news just came out and said, "(Normal) Sammy
Hagar releases his new book today, pick it up and read it, you'll like it". They wouldn't sell many books, and people would be like, "what is the
news doing advertising products now?" It wouldn't be newsworthy in other words. Heck, it wouldn't be on the news at all.
You see these celebs hire the best publicist money can buy. These publicist make 5 to 10% of what these celebs do. They are mostly known for damage
control but thats not their only job. They also "advertise" their meal ticket, which is the celeb. It's usually the publicist that make these crazy
things up and the celebs go along with it. Think of them as having roots in the advertising business in a sense. They know people watch the news
because the news is "serious". Getting a product on the news is not only cheap advertising it also sparks peoples interests. Especially the crazier,
grittier, nastier, etc it is.
Grand Theft Auto games are no doubt the best selling games BECAUSE the news demonized them for the questionable content. Call Of Duty Modern Warfare
2 did the same thing with the Russian Terrorist Level. BMX XXX decided last minute to put the XXX in the title and feature nude women racing on
bicycles because no one wanted to buy a bicycle racing game. Because of this "negative-positive" publicity it turned to sell way more copies than
anticipated. Now game companies purposely put some content in their games just to get controversy because controversy means NEWS and news means sales
and free advertising. Get it? I can't remember who it was, but some game did this a few months ago and it didn't work. People realized it and
brought it to light.
Conspiracy Theorist do the same thing. They know the same trick. David Icke is one of the biggest proponents of this. I'm refering to his beyond
crazy statements. People that don't know David hear this kind of stuff and think, "WOW, that guys nuts, lets listen to him". Then they hear him and
they hear his other work and think, wow, he's not so crazy, then become loyal fans. That's how they sucker you in. Surely everyone remembers Alex
Jones and Charlie Sheen's Famous Letter To the President? Okay, see what I mean? There you go.
Paris Hilton, known for nothing. No movies, no music, just known for being rich. Now how does someone like that, with no talent, get on the news and
get attention? Paris Hilton's play book thats how. Show your vagina while getting out of a car? Sure. It worked, matter of fact it worked so well
her good buddy Brittany had to come along with the "Dumb Master" to learn and perform that trick herself. Thing is, Paris isn't stupid at all. She's
actually quite smart and "SLY". Look at how much money she has made just from doing stupid things to keep her name in the media. Commercial's,
books, albums, all kinds of lucrative adventures, getting paid tons of money just to show up places, and on and on and on. None of that would have
been made possible if she wouldn't have played the role she did to get herself out there and noticed.
