As we enter a new year, we will be sure to hear about multiple celebrities who have screwed up their image in 2012. In 2011, celebrities made sure to put their name out to the public, some for good, others for bad. In this blog post, I’ll talk about celebs who ruined their public relations in 2011 with terrible actions.
Kim Kardashian: This big bootied former model gone reality television star sure made 2011 interesting for her PR staff. Starting the year off with a bang, Kardashian, 31, released a music video on Decemeber 31st 2010 that received horrible reviews for her dance moves . But that wasn’t all for her. A wedding that lasted 72 days with NBA player Kris Humphries and was deemed a publicity stunt for her television show, “Keeping Up With The Kardashians”. And if that wasn’t bad enough, Barbra Walters told Kim she and her family had no talent.
Kim’s public image took a huge fall in 2o11 and she’s a hard case to turn around. The marriage virtually sealed her fate as a fraud of sorts, marrying for publicity. You won’t find many people who back frauds.
Charlie Sheen: Sure, there was a time when Charlie Sheen’s random drug spawned outbursts were hilarious. Then it got old and Sheen looked stupid. Snorting cocaine and losing your role as one of the highest paid actors on television sure doesn’t sound like “WINNING” to me. He started the year off doing all sorts of crazy things that gave him respect from followers, finding his act funny and fresh. So when he booked a comedy tour “Charlie Sheen, A Violent Torpedo Of Truth”, it came with the intentions that it would generate success. No luck with that, as he was booed off stage in his first show in Detroit.
As of late, Sheen has been trying to turn it around. But its a little too late for the PR moves now, as the show he predicted would fail without him, “Two and a Half Men”, still is among the most popular shows on television. CBS sure doesn’t seem to miss him and the drama he caused in the early parts of 2011.
Miley Cyrus: She was once the princess of the Disney channel, with her show “Hannah Montana” being extremely well precieved and painting the child actress into a role model. But over the past few years, Cyrus has just been crashing and 2011 didn’t hold up. Music videos that moved her from the cute innocent child into the… well… slutty teenage adolescent continued to pop up. And the infamous video showing her taking hits out of a bong from what she said was salvia in 2010 weren’t well defended in 2011 when at her next birthday party, she admitted to smoking too much weed.
Miley’s PR agents are going to have to work double time to try and improve her public image. Unlike Sheen and Kardashian though, Miley isn’t starting out 2012 on a hot note. Just recently, pictures leaked of her at her boyfriend’s birthday party pretending to lick a birthday cake in the shape of a penis. Anyone still think she can be a role model for kids?
