Society’s inability to chastise young celebrities for their bad behavior means their misdemeanors actually increase their profile. Female stars today have begun to actively seek notoriety as a way of keeping themselves in the news without fear of public backlash.

While singers like 24 year old Leona Lewis are considered boring for not courting controversy, fellow pop singer Lily Allen, 24 is lauded for her outspoken criticisms of other celebrities and intoxicated appearances on stage.

“Opinionated and fiery, [Allen] has kept the papers buzzing all summer for reportedly spitting at Peaches Geldof, admitting she sold ecstasy in Ibiza when she was 15, telling the NME she’d celebrate a No 1 with gak (cocaine) or laying into…Madonna…Victoria Beckham, Bob Geldof, the Pussycat Dolls…few musicians nowadays would be so free with their opinions. Fewer still also look good in a dress…” (“Me, My Dad and Dumbo”, The Guardian, September 22, 2006)

Fellow singer Lady Gaga, who had Number one single with Just Dance is regularly photographed in provocative attire and seems to epitomize the current trend for sexually provocative singers not afraid to play the ‘dumb blonde’ persona to gain popularity.

The media may not be encouraging starlets to misbehave on camera, but their coverage of such incidences raises their profiles and proves the old adage ‘there’s no such thing as bad publicity’.
