This year the 22nd popular stars of 2012 were in running order (of combined totals of popularity), Kim Kardashian, Khloe Kardashian, Kourtney Kardashian and wider family team after that. Why are these sisters so popular? Because kids don’t know any better. No!
They are popular because: they create pictures of family, of community, of merchants, of entrepreneurs. etc. (more…)
LONDON’S RESIDENTS WANT TO SEE CREATIVE ENTREPRENEURIAL FAMILIES SHINE MORE – KOURTNEY, KIM, KHLOE KARDASHIAN DO LONDON
Thousands turned out to see three of the Kardashian sisters launch a brand new clothing line in London for Dorothy Perkins fashion retail franchise that has an impressive global footprint with sales. Leopard prints for the UK done the American family way, is the family’s new gig for the Brit retail store (a store that does fancy footwork, coats for winter and a maternity line too).
Yet it was the sight of London’s crowds that was near Beatles status, almost that is perhaps the starring trend of this story. It is fair to say the queues were beyond just good retail shopping status too. They reveal a need that has developed in UK’s people.
What does this mean? It shows that the UK has a desire to see entrepreneurial family stars more in the UK.
This family don’t really sing (they are not pop stars). What they do is entrepreneurial marketing and lifestyle storylines of family choices via a reality TV show series they co-produce. Cross-cultural storylines is how they unabashedly roll. Hugely popular with that approach.
The trend is interesting to see emerging in the UK. Londoners are hungry to grow in business and entrepreneurial ways. That’s what these three photos show via Wenn.Com. Perhaps the UK needs to create new entrepreneurs from the throngs of UK dwelling people then. Get a ground up momentum going on to assuage the trend or reproduce the new millionaires of the UK template a bit better.
(I love the marketing of these girls of Calabasas, California. So clever. Very Charlies Angels – USA for UK- and also slightly Bond girls too, except that there’s just three of them in the role :).
The UK needs a new line up of entrepreneurs for Young Adults. Young millionaires emerging and breaking through in the UK is what should happen. That’s perhaps what these pictures reveal if looking at the trend here. It’s always refreshing how one culture can cross over and gift another culture some encouragement from life lessons as the Kardashian girls are doing for the kids of the UK in these photos.

At the SAG Awards, “The Help was the big winner, taking home three awards for motion picture — cast of a motion picture, female actor in a leading role (Viola Davis) and female actor in a supporting role (Octavia Spencer). “I had to find my voice as a woman of color, as an artist, and I never thought I would be put in a position like that,” said Davis, standing in front of the 11-person cast representing the movie.”–reports the HR.
Hollywood Celebrity Wrap News Today looks like so:
Steve Buscemi (leading male actor, TV drama) and the cast of Boardwalk Empire (ensemble, TV drama), collecting their second SAG drama actor and series statuettes in as many years, gave a collective shout-out to its many cast members whose characters failed to survive the sophomore season of the HBO period drama. “It’s a real honor,” Buscemi told reporters backstage Sunday.–HR.

After paying tribute on her personal blog to The Gorgeous Ladies of The Golden Globes, (aka Jessica Alba, Charlize Theron, Zooey Deschanel and Angelina Jolie) Sunday, Kourtney Kardashian caused a media storm of her own.
The mother-to-be with baby number two, announced she can only tolerate “bland foods.” That was enough to bump the reality TV star into the top 20 names of Americans being discussed in the US for that day. Not bad on a Golden Globes night! “I pamper her no matter what,” said Scott Disick to Us Weekly.

Exemplifying the very best of non-stop US marketing machinary, (America’s best know artform to date), the Kardashian family have fashion merchandise distribution down pat.
They are unstoppable. Their recent news? Hannah’s Footwear of New Zealand, the place where parents take their college (or high school) kids to shop for school shoes, are now stocking Kim Kardashian, Khloe Kardashian and Kourtney Kardashian‘s hand bags.
The sisters marketing genius has largely occurred when Kim partnered with Los Angeles hot shot lawyer, Robert Shapiro to develop the fashion online marketing company, Shoe Dazzle. Millions of dollars of fashion merchandise are sold and distributed daily, via this distribution vehicle.
Those Kardashian girls are pretty smart.

At the local corner store dairy today in New Zealand, I got a major case of “am I in Hollywood, Bollywood or New Zealand?” surreality… when I saw these magazine posters at the local “7-11″ dairy store. Seeing so many pictures of America’s biggest stars in New Zealand in my neighborhood, made me think I’d had way too much coffee for the morning or that somehow I’d been transported to Hollywood in an overnight weird surreal dream.
That can happen, to even the most normal Kiwi person!
If you’re reading this from within the USA today, featured choices of stars by this Kiwi-Indian operated store are: Kim Kardashian (the week of her 2nd wedding day), Beyonce (everyone here thinks Bee’s What Goes Around music video is rather hot!) and Kourtney Kardashian and Khloe Kardashian too (as family is everything in New Zealand, really!).
That’s who counts via Hollywood globally. It’s that simple really. These names outside America, have global appeal.
And one Maori model and his Polynesia cousins, land an advertising spot for Digicel today. Also pictured outside the same store. Lol!

SCOTT DISICK GETS REAL, ADDRESSES SELF CENTEREDNESS PRICK FACTOR – AND 5 HOLLYWOOD THINGS – 3.13.11 3.30pm
It is the art of the American reality star to be as honest as one possibly can while turning out a show in the USA, offering commentary on culture.
After all, this is the job of the reality TV star, in the age of ‘reality television’ and the lucrative deals that follow (not for the show) but with endorsements. It’s millionaire-making terrain.
The Kardashian-Jenner family rule this entertainment platform in the USA (there’s so many of them, they’re able to cover trends, sort of like subtle moss in a jiffy!).
Scott Disick has the job of justifying the firms already shot TV series that have all already been filmed, in light of current global crises occurring all around us in the world. He’s a good lad. Thank goodness for tabloids, as what’s missing in the show content’s relevance, this family can make up for, in new tabloid stories.
Here’s what Scott has to say today, ”You know, I just realized there’s bigger things in the world than just being a selfish, self-centered, prick,” Disick, 27, told PEOPLE recently at the Famous Stars and Strikes Event benefiting A Place Called Home at Pinz Bowling Alley in Studio City, Calif. Scott’s comments were also made in relation to his recent stance to ‘give up the booze.’ It’s like dude, moderation man! His comments are good today.
We all have self-centeredness to work on and re-prioritize in light of a world we actually increasingly share more in being a part of, so I welcome Scott’s comments today. Trending sentiments for the USA even. Today Disick looks like a reality TV show guru. :)
Here’s 5 things we’re voting and sharing as social media in Hollywood right now.
5. Petra Nemcova inspires with real life experiences – Love her!
I gotta admit, I am slightly into Kim and Kourtney‘s new show. I must miss my sisters and their cool and very diverse families.
Some media outlets in the USA thinking about others in Japan right now are: Kausfiles (Slate); kottke.org; Left, Right and Center; The Moderate Voice; NDN Blog; The Notion (Nation); Oxdown Gazette; Pandagon; ABC; Access Hollywood; Al Jazeera; AOL News; Associated Press; BBC; Bloomberg; Boston Globe; C-SPAN; CBS; Chicago Sun-Times; Chicago Tribune

The art of American celebrity is what Kim Kardashian does. Thankfully she thinks about family and community most times when she creates as a reality TV star: If you have a Hollywood Celebrity News blog, that means you are one of the few people who can monitor trends, often 3 months before mainstream media outlets report results and findings to the general public.
That’s the beauty of online blogging. Last year’s biggest blog grower, was Lady Gaga‘s latest quirky hat. This year, so far, it appears to be Kim Kardashian‘s artistic modern portrait, depicting the art of the reality TV show artist, namely when she did her own portrait, by covering herself in silver body paint and posing for W Magazine. If you’ve been looking at The Top Ten everyday on Horiwood.Com, you’ll see that almost daily, Kim lands a spot (or she often does) for that W Magazine cover spread she did for the mag’s arts issue.
Well, Kim is kinda over not evolving as a media? celebrity? artist. She wants all her fans to know worldwide, that she has moved on since then, to other things. Namely opening a new store in New York City for example. Or being on every film awards shows list to appear on the red carpet or present to parlay her fame into the dimmer stars, of her filmmaking peers, as a good resident of Los Angeles. Kim is golden.
According to MTV.Com they report Kim feeling taken advantage of. Their news report runs like this: “Last October, Kim Kardashian had everyone drooling over her assets when she appeared nude on the cover of W magazine, leaving basically nothing to the imagination. On Sunday night’s new episode of “Kourtney & Kim Take New York,” months after the cover hit stands, fans saw the reality starlet open up about the shoot — and she was not at all happy about it.
“I was naked, but fully covered in silver paint,” she said in the episode about the Mark Seliger photos, according to the Hollywood Reporter. ” (more…)
“We must out-compete and out-build the world”–President Barack Obama to the American people, SoU address, 2011.
You can’t really have favorites in America. Everyone expressing ‘art’ and creating ‘pop culture’ to help Corporate America (Apple, Google and Facebook) out to ‘out-compete the world,’ via I.T and mobile telephony culture, has their own unique expressions of American-ness as they generate media-sharing connection points.
Four favorite ladies of celebrity news currently are always: Kim Kardashian, Kourtney Kardashian, Stefani Germanotta (or Lady Gaga) and Alecia Keys – pictured. Here’s a quick snap-shot of news (entertainment and celebrity news with a dash of politics) being created and sent out via America today.
The generous soul shall themselves be watered is an old proverb that’s so true. With that thought in mind, not only has she just announced that her breasts are 100% real but Kim Kardashian shocks Hollywood by announcing that she gives 10% or what she earns to charity. In particular, The Dream Foundation. Nice one! Kim also gives to her mom’s church out in Calabasas. That was new news.

Political wrestling news: Senate Ends Practice Of Secret Holds
Lady Gaga plays devil’s advocate for the ‘security industry’s’ marketing drive worldwide, her new song lyrics are: “Give yourself prudence and love your friends, subway kid rejoice your truth. In the religion of the insecure I must: be myself, respect my youth.” I would have to say that ‘prudence’ and Stefani Germanotta‘s presentation have never met each other once in her role for the US as Lady Gaga, so who is girl trippin out on here, except the naive? Lol! Her schizophrenia as a rather creative artist, makes her loved worldwide as a distraction from what’s real. Who does Germanotta date, exactly? Case in point. One more time… who does Stefani Germanotta personally date exactly? One more time… Yep! We still love her crazy in the USA! To keep Germotta’s politics fair beyond a dollar sign… Here’s some some lyrics too: “Born This Way: Gaga is the sound a newborn makes in Uganda when…” Sometimes, you have to ask, why don’t gay girl artists make bank like Germanotta, and isn’t she ready to hand over the gay ticket to introduce other artists who need to be fed too? With $70 million in the bank, she should be about now.

“Children are a blessing from the Lord”–King Solomon
It’s a good thing that some families are conscious about having babies on the family social agenda radar. Birth rates and marriage rates in the USA are at an all time low right now at time of writing. In a global world, there’s always adoption from other nations. But it is good to adopt as well as families breeding too, if they’re brave. Kids are full on these days, so you need big shoulders to take on parenting in any capacity, I reckon. A nations greatest treasure are its elderly and its children. Between these two points we are all strung like pearls on an evolving cultural continuum of society.
According to OK! Magazine of America, The Kardashians are all about baby love focus in 2011 and the 2010′s. Sounds good to me. In my family, we have a beautiful bundle of joy about to arrive any day now. So exciting! A new level of family leadership emerges. This one, I think on the sports field. I just have that vibe.
Let’s hope this family gets as many family miracles as they hope for in the years ahead here in California.

Growing up in New Zealand our family had American friends called The Marriotts. They would get Christmas cards just like this from their big toothy American friends abroad.
They loved getting them! Years later, I do too now. Here’s the Kardashian families’ this year.
