Oh, Heeeey…It’s You Again: 10 “Celebrities” You See Everywhere, But Don’t Really Know Why They’re Famous

May 29, 2013 ‐ By Clarke Gail Baines

Before you get your panties all in a knot, this isn’t about really dissing anybody. But have you ever noticed certain faces and people everywhere, but don’t really know why they’re such a big deal all of a sudden? You can probably blame it on blogs and Instagram, but it’s something that’s been going on for years and years. Hence the rise of folks like Paris Hilton, everyone from Laguna Beach and The Hills, and other people who are famous just for being in front of a camera. Some of these people finally did something with their talents, while others are still just trying to be seen everywhere to make you care. And it seems to be working. Here are 10 celebrities who are famous but we still aren’t 100 percent sure why…

Rita Ora

So Ora is one of the “First Ladies” of Roc Nation, but is it just me, or do you rarely hear her music on the radio? Maybe she’ll have the same type of upward mobility that Rihanna’s career eventually had after “Pon de Replay,” but for right now, I don’t get it. I see pictures of her coming out of every place, yet I’ve never seen her perform at an awards show. Every time I turn around on fashion site’s, I’m being asked what I think of her style, but I’ve only seen one of her videos on MTV. She’s gorgeous, but honestly, I don’t know this baby from Adam. She needs to shake Jay-Z to put her music on somebody’s station because I don’t know anyone that can name more than maybe two of her songs. But we’ll see what the future holds for her…her vocals aren’t bad!

    Actually, Rita Ora has been around for quite a while and has been largely famous in the uk. I know this wasn’t a diss but I feel like her creditt was lowered. She has great vocals and she was featured on Iggy Azaleas black widow. Just saying, before you ask why someone is famous, do your research. She may not be big in the US but she is a well known singer globally.

  • Diva in Dena

  • Dee

    Adrienne Bailon is a co-host on the talk show The Real with Tamar Braxton & Tamara Mowry…

  • Ashia Mookface Mathieu

    Gabrielle Union need to be taken off of this list !

  • Tru2myself

    I can’t discredit LaLa’s work: She did used to host TRL back in the day.

  • nema

    what about teyana taylor…

  • Luvn_it

    Rita is actually really big in the u.k with a couple of #1’s. She just hasn’t blown up here in the states

  • They are famous for having great Publicists!

  • Stay in School Kids

    Why isn’t Teyana Taylor on this list??

  • Dro and Lipstick

  • Lexi

    LaLa was a mtv vjay for the longest which is how she is known

  • randomtandem

    you just explained what Latoya Jackson is famous for so she shouldnt be in this list lol

  • Melissa

    The only reason Roc Nation has any credibility is because of Beyonce (who was already famous, but is kinda screwing around managment wise atm), Rihanna’s ways of selling sex and Kanye for being a creative genius (or is he not signed to roc anymore? I dunno). The other artists must not have cared about their ‘careers’ when they signed to Roc Nation..

  • Patricia

    Wow, you can be talentless, can’t sing, date professional athletes, entertainers, have babies by them, make sex tapes, cuss fight, act a fool, be a groupie, jumpoffs, like these people mentioned and make money. It is so amazing. I need to get in and get me a piece of that. But I do be glad when people stop watching these realities shows and supporting people like the Kardashians,Lozardo, etc.

    I honestly have not heard one of Rita Ora’s songs, unless it was slipped in while I was bustin it wide open in the club or something…j/k, j/k. But errrrm, seriously…Kim Kardashian used to be a stylist?!?!?

    *faints to floor*

    • Luvn_it

      Actually kim k was a stylist for brandy back in the day. Thats how her and ray j ended up meeting in the first place

      • M Eaglecloud

        Yeah Kim was a stylist alright! They stole
        Brandy’s mom credit cards and the three sisters racked up a hefty sum! Mrs. Norwood was going to press criminal charges but didn’t because Brandy begged her not to. Mrs. Norwood eventually had to Sue them for her money and to date these tricks haven’t paid one damn cent!!

  • I hate that ole famous for being famous mess. I think it’s an insult to the ones who worked their butts off in college and/or grind hard, sweat blood and tears to make it. Now it’s like, all you have to do is look exotic, do a few tweets, pose in your bikini on instagram and screw famous people, oh and butt implants and tada you’re famous! That’s wack and insulting. But honestly most of these people on this list are only famous because of the blogesphere. If you aren’t into blogs you either don’t know them or forgot them. I wish that lead singer chick from danity kane. aubrey something or another was on here she just doesn’t seem to go away (much shade intended) lol.

    • chaka1

      The internet has kept people famous way past their expiration date.

  • CrisTX

    I just seen her in a low budget movie on Netflix

  • NeaJ

    I’m tired of seeing Adrienne every damn where. She’s like a professional event goer. Lol. I know she’s probably like: I can’t wait to get dressed one night & go to something where ppl aren’t asking “wth is she doing here”?
