Porn And Fame

I was reading today about Montana Fisburne, actor Laurence Fishurne’s daughter, porn film debut.  I’m no prude and really don’t care about people making, watching or whatever else they want in, about, or with the porn industry.  What caught my attention was her alleged statement: “I’ve watched how successful Kim Kardashian became and I think a lot of it was due to the release of her sex tape.”  This young woman wants to be famous and therefore she’s making a porn film.

How sad that fame is so glorified and people so empty inside that often we will commit acts against ourselves to achieve that which we think will bring us happiness.

Of course we are discussing  extreme  fame but how many of us have done things we did not believe in thinking others would look up to us?  Or how many of us have said things we didn’t believe in for the same reasons?

In this fast paced world of excesses and media cover up, the life of fame seems extremely attractive and we all want a part of it; with some of us more than others.  But fame as goal – which leaves behind who we are – eventually announces its true self as a blanket which aims to warm up our hearts but it can’t because it’s full of holes.

I’m going to go out on a limb here and say investing in our own sense of self will bring more contentment than anything that fame or adulation can do for any of us.

Creating a sense of self-worth and connecting to meaning may not make headlines but for sure it makes for good living.

    I remember being shocked once when I asked my the 16 year old niece what she wanted to pursue as a career / what was she thinking about as a college major? Her reply was “Be famous.” When I asked how she planned to go about becoming “famous” she said “I dunno – what those other girls do that don’t do anything…” UHG! Cringe! I worked my way up the proverbial ladder of my career the good old-fashioned hard way; one rung at a time. I put myself through Grad school (no one paid for it..) and this was while working 80 plus hour workweeks. Okay – so maybe I was about to tell her those 6 miles in the snow without shoes to get to school stories my parents used to tell, but instead, I just said “Find your passion…please find something you LOVE doing and being a part of. And then, if you a really lucky, the fame & fortune MAY follow. She just looked at me with a blank stare. Well, she is a college graduate now and how do you think she spends her time? Working 3 hours, twice a week in her dad’s office and the rest of the time worrying about what sex kitten outfit she will wear to party her guts out at some Hollywood club, get totally wasted and not wake up until 1 p.m. the next day. Her FB page is filled with sexy “duck lip” photos of herself and sometimes her friends – often kissing other girls – not what I believe for her own enjoyment, but to titillate her male friends. In most of her pictures there is this vacant look in her eyes. I have been very careful not to post to her FB page as it would probably mortify her that her friends saw her “old” auntie was lurking around, but finally I did… I said “Have you found your passion yet?” I signed in to see her response the next day and saw that she “De-Friended” me. IDK WTF IMA PITA in her book now! (-:
