Now powerful figures such as Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein have come to light and demystified the industry. If you ever wanted to be a superstar and become famous, then you might want to reconsider your plans once you learn what it’s really like to live in the spotlight.
Hollywood is more than money, fame, red carpet appearances and millions of adoring fans. There is also shocking shallowness, abuse, heartbreak and more crime. Here’s a dark secret and scary story that demystifies the entertainment industry.
Hollywood is no stranger to publicity stunts, and there’s no limit to how far the industry will go to get the public’s attention. Back in 2014, there was a lot of talk about Kanye West and Kim Kardashian fighting for a spot on the cover of Vogue. When the magazine’s editor-in-chief, Anna Wintour, finally decided to place them on the front page of the fashion magazine, she created an intense firestorm. Some readers threatened to cancel their Vogue subscriptions, calling Kimye disgraceful and inappropriate for the iconic publication.
Wintour later went on the record and said that no one would have batted an eye if the magazine had stuck with “tasteful” cover stars. But by placing West and Kardashian on the cover, she drummed up some much-needed publicity for the magazine.In the entertainment world, any kind of attention is good, even if it’s bad.
