Pseudo-celebrities: Which one is the most pointless?

It might be tempting to say Kim Kardashian (or any Kardashian) but I'm going to go with Courtney Stodden. She's famous for being annoying and marrying an old guy.

Paris Hilton. Still pointless.

Lindsay Lohan. Yeah, at one point she had a career, but she threw everything away and is now a flamed out car crash.

Interstingly I think most candidates for this title seem to be female though. The only male coming to my mind is Jason Davis, the drug addict millionaire son from Celebrity Rehab.

Meryl Streep.

Unfortunately, now there are hundreds.

The Kardashians are on ALL the tabloid covers this week. Pointless, but I guess somebody enjoys them.

All of the mocktresses.

Pimp mama Kris Jenner.

Lance Bass.

Ocotomom is a great choice.

At least Paris and Kim have/had hit reality shows at some point.

Lance Bass was in a hugely successful group...that gives him something of a legit claim to fame. More than most of the "celebrities" named here, at least.

Paris Hilton

I don't view having a reality show as an achievement. It's sill garbage.

I think that Paris Hilton represents something more than celebutard. She was THE celebutard, the first heirhead to capture the nations attention and become A-List. For a brief moment in pop culture, she reigned and she was an original. A coke snorting, American princess who was a movie star without being in movies and a pop star without singing a note. Impressive.

The Kardashians are the pointless ones.

Yeah, I don't get the Courtney Stodden one. She's not from a famous family, isn't rich, isn't on TV, and the old dude she married is barely famous in his own right. I have no idea why she gets any attention from the media whatsoever.

All the Kardashian's.

Paris will never impress me. Racist, vapid and a horrible person.

Does Courtney Stodden get any attention from the mainstream media?

I suspect the attention is actually from bloggers who enjoy a freak show.

by Anonymousreply 1803/21/2013

Courtney Stodden gets attention because she does all but lay in the gutter with her legs spread begging for a train ride. Along with other demographics, the media tries to appeal to the old perv demographic.

Richard Simmons

by Anonymousreply 2003/21/2013

Richard Simmons is absurd, but he produced actual products and services that actually sold. He made himself a brand in order to sell something else, not as an end in itself as "celebrities" do today.
