10 'Why Are They Famous?' Celebrities ...

Some people become celebrities for no discernible reason. They can’t act, sing, or do anything demonstrating possession of talent, yet their every move is documented and photographed. Here are some ‘celebs’ who richly deserve to be included in this list, and if you don’t know who any of these people are, be grateful. If they have not graced your shores or media, get down on your knees and thank God (and while you’re down there, ask Him why on earth he created them in the first place).

Paris Hilton

Paris Hilton I almost like Paris. She seems sweet but dim. Unfortunately, not content with being filthy rich, Paris continues to try careers for which she is utterly unsuited, such as acting.

Kim Kardashian

Kim Kardashian She’s rich, has a funny foreign name, and is in a reality show. Has sisters named Khloe and Kourtney. This is all that I can discern about this woman. Does not appear to actually do anything, except get her photo constantly in the papers.

Jordan/Katie Price

Jordan/Katie Price This photo encapsulates the tackiness that is ‘glamor model’ Katie Price. It’s like Dr Frankenstein tried to create a drag queen. Fake boobs, fake hair, fake tan, fake lashes … and enough sequins to clothe an entire chorus line. This monstrous creation feeds off publicity and reality shows. Somebody make it stop.

Kerry Katona

Kerry Katona What is it about the initials KK? Does it mean in numerology that you are destined to become famous for no reason whatsoever? This particular z-lister was in a minor girl band for about 5 minutes, married a boy band singer, had a couple of kids, divorced, married a sponging loser, had a couple more kids, spent a fortune, went bankrupt … and treated us to all this via reality shows. Enough already.

All ‘supermodels’

All ‘supermodels’ Why are glorified clothes horses deemed to be celebrities? They walk up and down a catwalk – if you can call that weird high step they do walking. Actually it looks more like dressage to me (the clothes horse analogy was obviously a good one). They pout for photos. Most aren’t even that goodlooking, Naomi Campbell and Kate Moss in particular. Moss snorts coke and Campbell throws phones. Great basis for fame.

Footballers’ Wives (or the Wives of Any Sports Stars)

Footballers’ Wives (or the Wives of Any Sports Stars) Known in the UK as WAGS (wives and girlfriends). Have achieved nothing in their own right, but still get media coverage because of who they married.

The Geldof Girls

The Geldof Girls Famous because their dad was famous (and what’s he been doing in the last 25 years?), and for having spectacularly silly names (Peaches Honeyblossom and Pixie). Perhaps their misbehavior is retaliation at their parents.

Reality Show Contestants

Reality Show Contestants These take the sought-after route to instant fame. Fortunately, most disappear after their initial attempt to make something out of nothing, but a significant number hang around like an incurable disease.

Perez Hilton

Perez Hilton Oh, the irony. Becomes famous for blogging about celebrities. Perhaps encapsulates the curse of the modern age – that anyone with a laptop and an Internet connection has access to a global audience.

Cheryl Cole

Cheryl Cole Deserves a special mention for falling into so many categories. Won a place in a ‘band’ as part of a reality show (strike one). Married a footballer and exploited his name and infidelities to get more press coverage (strike two). Launched a solo career even though she cannot sing (strike three) and ‘judges’ a reality show (strike four … what’s the penalty?) and does nothing but flick her extensions and look pretty. If you are in the US, this talentless ‘singer’ is attempting to break America. Be warned.

Who in your opinion stretches the definition of the word celebrity? Is there anyone who makes you despair every time you see their face, and shout ‘but what have they DONE?’

Feedback Junction

Where Thoughts and Opinions Converge

I live in Britain and Cheryl Cole judges a talent show not a reality show. I don't particularly like her, and no, she isn't a great singer, but you don't have to be to have a successful pop career. She is also beautiful, but isn't stuck up like most celebrities. If you don't live in the UK, get your facts right before slandering people here, as most people like Cheryl Cole where I live.

Ha ha thanks!

heyyy...there is nothing wrong with wags... they are actually very fun as women, and make the most of their time. And victoria beckham is a wag, and she started with the spice girls and then made her own fashion line so she is an example of a working wag.

Yeah it makes me SUPER sad that people work their butts off to get into the industry and are super talented and end up to be NOTHING. But these people are famous.

hey try listening to Paris Hilton's album, it could be your new guilty pleasure!!!! She's not that bad and her songs are catchy :) Check out the video for Nothing In This World!

totally agree with you for Paris. what in earth is she doing to be so famous?
