Seems that if you’re keen on being seen as a “proper” Hollywood celebrity nowadays, you need to start with a sex tape. Otherwise you’re just not a celebrity. The newest tape to be released is that of The Roommate star Minka Kelly.
According to the celebrity gossip website TMZ.com; “The tape is shot in a semi-professional manner. The camera is secured by a tripod and hooked up to a TV monitor, so both Minka and the BF can watch the action they create. Minka is very aware of the camera.”
There is also the question of whether Minka was over 18 (the legal age in the USA to have sex) when the tape was shot, but so far nothing has been proven otherwise and Minka herself (or her rep for that matter) hasn’t commented on the tape.
In all fairness though, did you know who this girl was till now? I bet your answer would be no. Well, there’s no question that sex tapes have helped girls (and guys) in their quest for stardom before, so why would now be any different?
Let’s look at the evidence:
Kim Kardashian’s sex tape with rapper Ray J, where he is seen urinating on her, landed her a reality TV show on E! about her crazy family; Keeping up with the Kardashians and it now loved (and hated) by many a fan.
Famous for being a “supporting actor” at the time, Colin Farrell’s career skydived after his sex tape was released in 2005 and he gained notoriety as a Hollywood bad boy and gained huge roles in movies such as Horrible Bosses and Phone Booth.
Kendra was known as the naughtiest girl in Girls of the Playboy Mansion, but when the video came out she was supposedly “livid”. Let’s not forget how popular her TV show Kendra became after the release of the tape though… I’m just saying.
Anyway there are many more people including Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee, Verne Troyer, Tulisa Contostavlos, Katie Price, Jenna Lewis, Keeley Hazell and Rob Louw who have also had sex tapes leaked publicly, whether it was leaked by a third party or by themselves. We also have our very own sex tape scandals in South Africa including Joost van der Westhuizen’s and Pieter de Villiers’.
So, it seems that if you want a reputation (mostly a bad one), you need to release a sex tape and you’re an overnight celeb! Beware though, as the competition is obviously very very fierce. *rolls eyes*
Have a lovely week further mah pretty pouters!
