In 1968 Andy Warhol said, in the future, everyone will be world-famous for 15 minutes. There will soon be seven billion people on the planet. In order for that to happen, some of those in the spotlight at the moment, need to step aside so that others can have their turn.
There are many celebrities who have enjoyed their time with their name in lights. These celebrities need to face the truth, their 15 minutes is almost up – or it should be. The courteous thing for them to do is make room for the next celebrity on the 15 Minute list. Below are the five celebrities whose fame is burning down to the last few seconds, at least it should be.
Leave Britney alone! When Chris Crocker uploaded the now famous video to YouTube, he probably knew it would get a lot of attention. sine then, more than 340,000 people have subscribed to Chris Crockers YouTube channel and almost 200,000,000 people have viewed his videos. That is a lot of views!
Crocker has went on to do several documentaries, in 2007 he created a comic strip, he was a guest on the Reality Remix Really Aware show on Fox Reality channel. Later on he appeared in a Sierra Mist commercial an/d he was a guest on a program on Comedy Central.
Chris Crocker reported that he has received death threats because he is openly, flamboyantly and proudly gay. In order for Crocker to remain safe, maybe it is best if he just removed himself from the long list of working celebrities – someone will be glad to take his place.
When Ms. Gessert was accused – by the media and everyone who saw the photos – of having an affair with Reggie Bush, (the ex-boyfriend of Kim Kardashian), she was the subject of several newspaper articles, blogs postings, tabloids and television programs.
The general public do not know if the affair continued, but apparently January Gessert did not want to make her star any brighter that it was. She was not suddenly all over the new giving her side of the story, she did not appear on any TV shows and she did not try to get her own reality show. She handled herself with style and went on with her life. I think.
Joe the Plumber
Samuel Joseph Wurzelbacher. He is better known as ‘Joe the Plumber’, the guy who drew media attention and instant fame during the 2008 Presidential campaign. He received his claim to fame when he asked Mr. Barack Obama about the tax policies for small business owners.
He was given the nickname because he was supposed to represent the working man and woman. Also known as middle class America. As a result of his stardom Wurzelbacher became a motivational speaker as well as an author.
Born in Santiago, Chile as Nicole Polozzi, Snooki began her 15 minutes on Jersey Shore, a popular MTV reality show. During her short time as a reality TV star, Snooki has appeared on The Jay Leno Show, she was a presenter at the 2010 CMT Music Awards and on July 27, 2010 the Snooki and Jersey Shore cast rang the opening bell at the New York Stock Exchange.
Those are very impressive accomplishments for such a short time. But, everyone has to step aside to make room for the next new star on the list.
When Susan Boyle appeared on America’s Got Talent, she stunned the entire world with her clear, beautiful voice. There were several television specials that told almost every intimate detail of her life. For Ms. Boyle, the intimacy of fame caused her to suffer a physical set-back – that landed her in the hospital.
Maybe it would be healthier for Susan Boyle if she kindly stepped aside and handed the clock to someone else.
There are dozens more celebrities who has had their time in the limelight and there are only a few seconds left. It is time for someone else to be given the chance to entertain the world.
