None of them have any talent whatsoever except one. - the talent for attention whoring, which they have mastered. They are a sad representative of young women today and an even worse role model for younger girls. Shallowness and vapidity coupled with pretense for 'caring' about issues are traits i absolutely despise and so so unattractive
I want to add a bit to this:

Consider McQ, when he came, he created designs that were nothing if not over-the-top, wild and attention grabbing, not to be forget totally impractical. However, we all loved them, because there were so refreshing. And I am willing to argue that was the whole purpose for McQ, to create something that would be attention grabbing.

Attention garbbing has its place but yes, as you say, there are certain individuals in our society, who are self-obsessed and 'attention whores' (such a crude work eh!). And the media (& society?) loves them.

Well I think a lot will agree that the Kardashians love to hog the spotlight. How can we ever get away from them? Will we? The media is constantly filling us in on their fluffy little lives. I'm not saying their brand has no value, it does. But come on........

The latest: Are Kylie and Kendall too young to walk the runway??

^^it is very troubling really. On a superficial level people can laugh it off..but its just a bit of a slippery slope in general social morals.

I was thinking when a music video came on tv the other day....it reminded me of that scene in GaGas video (telephone) when she flashed her f*nny. Yes its been done years ago by Madonna, but i think years ago it was 'adult' and wouldnt have found its way onto as many media channels....These days its just the 'norm'....which is kinda messed up when you think about it.

The worst attention whores are bloggers who post 5-6 similar photos of the same outfit or purchase.

I've seen the video but never noticed.

Lindsay Lohan is another example of someone who totally lost it. I use to love her freckled & innocent look but boy did she turn that around minus the freckles.
