Does anyone remember who Paris Hilton is? Okay, two people? Cool, it’s not just me then. Well, Ms. Hilton attended a Halloween party at the Playboy Mansion to remind the world that she is still alive and that none of her reality show descendants can perfect the hands-on-hips red carpet pose better than she can. Her choice of costume? Miley Cyrus at the VMAs, complete with two blonde mini-buns and a Hilton-esque bedazzled foam finger.
Paris Hilton and Miley Cyrus together in one entity?! This bizarre inception of fame-hungry celebrities is too much to handle! Then again, is it much of a surprise since the more crazy antics one does in Hollywood, the more famous he or she is? As of right now, the Kardashian clan and Miley Cyrus are taking over every news headline. Paris Hilton has been out of the spotlight for a while. I guess I’ll add her in anyways, since she was the one that starting this whole “famous for being famous” thing … and to give her kudos for her Miley costume.
Whether you love them or hate them, you have to admit that these girls are masters at marketing themselves and landing on covers of every tabloid magazine. It’s not just something a PR expert knows how to do. It’s all about interacting with fans and creating their own signature looks.
Teenage girls are just obsessed with these tidbits of glamorous celebrity lives and maybe feel that by following their social media accounts, they get to live vicariously through them too. These stars have brilliantly operated their accounts to promote their latest projects too. The Kardashian clothing line, Miley Cyrus’s album, Bangerz, and Paris Hilton’s … umm … various endeavors, have seen tremendous success because they give sneak peeks to their fans. This kind of exclusive relationship encourages fans to support their beloved stars even more.
These images are pop culture icons on their own. Girls have begged their parents for a small Chihuahua so they can carry it around like the Hilton heiress, there are hundreds of YouTube hair tutorials on how to recreate the ‘Kardashian’ waves and the word ‘twerk’ was recently added to the dictionary primarily due to Cyrus’ memorable VMA performance. Crazy how seeing certain dog breed, hairstyle or dance move can all be traced back to a certain famous person.
So there you have it. It can be widely disputed if these girls are talented enough to be as famous as they are, but you have to admit that they know what they are doing when it comes to marketing themselves!
