Buying things because celebrities say they use those things is stupid, but at least eating Wheaties because Michael Jordan says he likes them means that you're taking the word of one of the most physically gifted men in history. On the other hand, buying something because LC from The Hills endorses it means that you're following the lead of a popular cheerleader, and it's basically high school bullshit with corporate backers.

What is she endorsing? The source just takes me to Splash News homepage and I'm too lazy and annoyed at life right now to take the time to search out the story.

And why is she orange?

Totally adorable, in an orange/mystic tanning, teeth bleaching, plastic surgery-having, hair extensioned, kind of way! Who is this tween and why do I care???

you know what i like about her (and im giving myself away, i watch the hills) i think her fake hills character is adorible and a good friend. So I like to think that this cute "reality" tv star is exactly like LC from the hills - so.. I like her.

But I dont care what she is selling. Unless its teeth whitening stuff - cuz Be Adequite you are right and I kinda wish mine were that white.

While I understand the point you're trying to make, Cord, why not take it a step further and ask, why do any celebrities do endorsements? All of them have the same concept of buying a product only because a famous face is behind it. I'm not buying Reebox shoes just because Scarlett Johannssen endorses them.

we all already know that Lauren has less than inspiring style. All the girls she hangs with seem to always out-style her. She dresses cute but not cute enough to have a clothing line, etc.

that said.. i agree with above. who made those boots? anyone? They have a good heel and are just slouchy enough.

love,
Mr. Sniffles

I still like her way more than Paris or Li-Lo. Who cares if she's a reality star - she's a decent role model. Post - Jason of course. Trivia: I heard she has giant beef curtains.

I don't really care about this girl, but this thread inspired two points:

1) Anthropologie sells boots remarkably similar boots. (I hope my html worked)

2) I am an abysmal speller, and ppl seem to be pretty grammar/spelling police-y lately, and I am getting all nervous. So I would like to take this opportunity to say - there is no spell check, man! Please forgive and don't point out my foibles - I admit I suck at spelling and take full responsibility for it. You will only be preaching to the choir.

Hmmm, I don't think I have ever bought something just because a specific person endorsed it but I have bought things in the hopes they look good on me because they looked good on someone in the ad. Is there a fine line between the two I wonder?

I think there is a fine line, becuase Sheryl Crowe can tell you NOT to use toilet paper and, i assume, you ignore her.

I think it matters who the person is. Im with you, kitchy, on Ewan McGregor. Had he run heavan's gate, I'd have drank the koolaid.

I think you're right, April. I ignore Sheryl with the toilet paper thing however when she's in those Revlon hair color commercials she gets my full attention...until I realize the stuff she's hawking is $16.
