People Who are Famous for Being Famous

Have you ever wondered why there are some people who become popular for reasons like being linked to someone who is already famous? This is a growing culture in Hollywood. Fame by association has now invaded the entertainment industry and is embraced by certain audiences. Here is a list of some of the celebrities who are considered famesque and celebutante.

Famous Celebrity Equals Famous Offspring

There are a number of celebrities who are already known to the public even before they came out with their own movie or television projects. These are the darling children of famous actors, actresses, and singers.

One example of people who are famous for being famous is Suri Cruise - the daughter of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes. When the couple announced Katie's pregnancy, there have been publicity battles on whose magazine covers the first photos, whose network gets the first air time, etc. As time goes by, the public is still watchful of the little Suri, saying she is a fashion toddler icon. She was even included in a popular magazine's list of best dressed women in 2011 alongside Keira Knightly and Jessica Alba. To think that she is just eight years old!

Other famous Hollywood celebrity kids are Willow and Jaden Smith, Lisa Marie Presley, and Nicole Richie.

Kid from the Rich and Powerful

If your father is the owner of one of the largest hotel chains all over the world, it is not hard to not know who you are. That is what happened to another celebutante Paris Hilton.

Paris, one of the daughters of Kathy and Rick Hilton, is an American socialite, model, actress, and entrepreneur. She is highly known as the Hilton heiress. She is an example of people who are famous for being famous mainly because she is the granddaughter of the founder of Hilton Hotel, Conrad Hilton. She did try her hand in modeling, singing, and reality shows, but if not for her heiress status, the public will just have counted her as another face in the Hollywood crowd.

The list also includes Brenda Frazier (daughter of a general manager of the Bank of Montreal) and Gloria Vanderbilt (from the prominent Vanderbilt family of New York). Of course, who would not know about Kim Kardashian?

Birds of the Same Feather Flock Together?

This saying is true mostly for some personalities branded as celebutantes. Take James St. James, for instance. He became friends with nightlife icon and columnist Michael Musto in 1986. Since then, he is known to invade rocking party scenes in New York. His fame also skyrocketed from his association with an icon.

Even though these people became popular out of association, they still are human and are subject to criticisms and public scrutiny just like any other celebrity. Fame might have come without any effort at all from their part. For some of these people, some of the things that come with fame and being popular might not be all that desirable as well. Many, however, simply shrug it off and enjoy the fame and attention while it lasts.
