    How can Kim Kardashian and Justin Beiber earn money when lots of people hate them?

    As the saying goes, bad publicity > no publicity.

    Because people can't get enough of them. Even though it's negative press people are talking about them. I mean think of how many Kardashian, and Bieber threads we've had here.

    Watching tv with my 7 year old daughter - we saw a commercial for a reality show about a very obese girl. It's called something like my big fat fabulous life. Or something.

    My daughter asked why the woman had her own show and what made her famous. How do you answer that???

    Anytime someone says something good/bad people want to know more about it.

    I have seen this commercial and thought the show looked ridiculous. No surprise it is on 'The Learning Channel'.

    Just say:

    "Sweetie, there are some people in this world that will do anything to get attention. And there are a lot of stupid people that will give them that attention. Just ignore them."

    I think you have to be picked and chosen by the media powers. Because you will need them to promote you (and to drown out the better existing talent, and actual news going on)


    There are smarter and better looking talents out there, with more talent, who are more interesting. BUT those don't make good puppets. Dumb individuals without smarts or actual worth are easier to manipulate (no talent/skill = have more to lose), and also as an added bonus tend to be more relateable to by your giant dumb crowd full of worthless thoughtless consumers (what most choose to be).

    They are artificially hand picked. Just like the cast of Jersey shore (who weren't Italian, were each selected, and were flown in to the location)

    Good luck with that

    Some people will just pay attention to anyone that puts themselves out there. It doesn't seem to matter what that person does or whether or not he/she is a good person. Kim K is the best example I can think of, of someone that has people following their every move, even though she doesn't actually do anything at all.
