I’m back.

Just a few minutes after my last post I went to MSN news.  I wanted to check on the important happenings around the world.

I saw: “U.S. Looks For Larger Pakistan Role”

“Parents of Missing U.K. Girl Issue Plea”

“GM Recalls 313,000 Cars For Safety Risk”

“Scientific Reasons For Earth’s Seasons”

and then I saw…..

“Are Justin and Jessica Shacking Up”.

It gets worse.

The next story I looked at on that page said (and I swear this is exactly what it said – check it out yourself):

“Scoop: Jamie Lynn is Real News”

The “real news” is about Jamie Lynn Spears being pregnant.

With everything going on around the world, THIS is “real news”.

If the significance of what I have just said escapes you, you haven’t been reading the posts on this blog.

If you are not creating your own celebrity status – or if you aren’t learning how to create your own celebrity status – you are going to lose…big time.

    Paul et al – do you remember the “New York Celebrity Omelete” from a few years ago? Some hotel was getting huge publicity because they had a “$1,000 omelete” (I can’t recall the actual dollar amount, but it was ridiculous, of course…) anyway, right around that time I had a business consultant who told me “David, I think the media are a bunch of pimps and prostitutes (he used much cruder words), but for your business you should use the leverage power the media will give you”. Great advice, but I didn’t know how to get that leverage. Paul, when I found out about your publicity system, I knew I had to get it. I’ve already done over a dozen media interviews and plan to do a heck of a lot more. You’re 100% correct that we are a celebrity obsessed society, and frankly I find the shallowness of it all disgusting and a bad sign for us as a country, but if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em, right?! I’m with you – celebrity status, here I come!

    Hi Paul,

    I just had to comment about Jamie Lynn Spears. You’re right: she’s everywhere: CNN, all over the Internet and the tabloid magazines at my supermarket checkout stand.

    I’m not a person who usually pays much attention to celebrites, their success or their failures (at least, not those of the Spears girl’s type). My response to that type of thing has always been “Who cares???”

    Pakistan’s president was just assasinated a few days ago. Millions of Americans are struggling with credit card debt. Poverty (even in America) still exists and pawnshops and payday loan lenders are still getting rich off the backs of the working poor. The American mortgage business is in crisis with record foreclosures.

    And all we hear about is a teen pregnancy. Disgusting!

    Michelle
