Apparently, you can make a name for yourself on MySpace. And that name can have as many capital letters as you want.
ForBiddeN is a MySpace user, who posts naked pictures and semi-naked pictures, as well as offering her own desktop wallpaper, screensaver and clothing line. And now, she’s going to be in Playboy!
This is the nature of internet self-publishing. We all have dreams that our Flickr photos will end up in National Geographic and that our Blogspot technology reviews will end up in Wired. (Clive Thompson, call me!)
ForBiddeN (it hurts my English-teacher soul to type that) is celebrating her sucess with a huge Hollywood party. And it really is a success story. Contrary to popular belief, it seems that you CAN sell it when you’re giving it away for free. Her party attracted all kinds of MySpace users, journalists, celebrities and famous-for-being-famous celebs.
When Paris Hilton gets a DUI leaving your party, you know you’re famous. Or infamous. But when the goal is self-promotion, who cares?
