Get Them Some Water, The Thirst Is Real: Celebrities Who Do The Absolute Most For Attention

Celebrities who want attention…When I learned this morning that Raz B and his publicist lied about being in a coma for publicity, I was pretty disgusted. Not because I didn’t have my suspicions about the possibility of somebody waking up from a coma in less than a day, but more because I could only respond to the whole thing with, “WHO DOES THAT!?”

Truth is, there are plenty of people out here doing the most for attention. Some with good results and with no harm intended. Others just to be infamous and have their name in people’s mouths. Here are 12 individuals who have been caught talking crazy, acting a fool, lying, or showing every ounce of what God gave them in the hope that you’ll care. As we always say, the thirst is real.


Stacey Dash

Back when Dash played Dionne in Clueless, she was everything. But these days, she’s really trying folks. Whether she’s calling out other celebrities on Twitter, or sharing who she will vote for in elections in a tiny red swimsuit, while Dash is free to have and share her opinion, it never seems genuine. It just always seems like a ploy to keep her name in your mouth until she can get that next gig. Girl, now you know you should have acted right when you were working on Single Ladies…

Rush Limbaugh

You know the struggle for attention is real when a fat man is saying Oprah Winfrey couldn’t see the purse she wanted in Zurich because she’s allegedly too fat. But what do you expect from a man who says “the NFL all too often looks like a game between the Bloods and the Crips without any weapons.” Limbaugh makes his money from shocking folks, despite the fact that he has been criticized often for sharing inaccurate information through his radio show and commentaries, and even in his books.

Lady Gaga

Love me some Gaga! But I would be lying if I didn’t say that the eccentric outfits even just to run errands, the over-the-top videos meant to come off as art, and her performances are often done to get all eyes on her. Clearly it’s working because she stays selling albums and selling out tours. She’s pretty much the chick who had these other pop and R&B stars trying to step their game up. Not even mad at her.

Ann Coulter

Back to the negative. Anytime I see Ann Coulter’s name in a headline, I make sure I ignore the story as a whole. Some people just make it their mission to spew so much negativity it can just make your head hurt. And while Coulter is pretty educated, she sounds pretty stupid a majority of the time when she calls the President of the United States “retarted,” other individuals “fa**ots” and “Jihad monkeys.”


Rae Dawn Chong

Rae is the third person on this list who has tried to say something ugly about Oprah, and Lord knows we wouldn’t even be mentioning her name if she had not done so. If you’ll recall, Chong made that extremely offensive comment that “if you look at the way [Oprah] looks, she looks like 60 years ago she would have been a house keeper luckily. She would have not been a house n**ger she would have been a field n**ger.” If that’s not a blatant cry for attention, I don’t know what is.

Kim Kardashian

You know you need attention when a trip to get ice cream includes dozens of photographers on your tail. Homegirl is smarter than you think. She made a multi-million dollar empire from not only a sex tape, but just being everywhere all the time, dating famous fellas, and forcing the paparrazi to care about her every move. It helped her family get on, and now she’s sitting around talking about she doesn’t think people need to see and know everything about her now that she has her own family. That’s going to be hard considering all of her Instagram pictures used to be come off like photoshoots.


She’ll always be the Queen of Pop, but at some point, Madonna is going to need to stop showing her booty to get people to look at her. At 55, she’s still out here flashing her actual nips and wearing grills on Instagram. Your body is sick, and your music is still pretty fun, but you have to take a seat from time to time, Madge.

Miley Cyrus

It only makes sense though. A few years ago, Cyrus tried to raunch things up in her career when she dropped the song and video “Can’t Be Tamed.” Unfortunately, nobody blinked an eye and her whole heart wasn’t really in it. Cyrus has since gained the attention of millions by twerking that “thang” on camera, at concerts, and in photoshoots, and when she’s not saying she was Lil Kim in another life, she’s taking photos with Juicy J and a whole host of black folks and calling people b***hes on Twitter. This is a bit much for someone who just a few years ago said she didn’t know one single Jay Z song…

I loves Rihanna, Lord knows I do, but she made TMI cool on Instagram. We’ve seen her butt cheeks up close, seen her canoodling with strippers, topless, pant-less, on her knees in a hotel room allegedly with Chris Brown, and everything in between. By now, the sight of the singer in next to nothing is far from a shock or surprise. Damn…that’s kind of sad…

Courtney Stodden

I actually feel kind of bad for this young woman, because in her teen years, she went from looking 16 and 17 to 35 overnight all while marrying a man in his 50s. She’s gone on TV to talk publicly about her relationship, including appearing on the hot mess show Couple’s Therapy, and she’s had enough plastic surgery to to speed up the aging process big time. The now-18-year-old got a taste of “celebrity” and she’ll do the absolute most to keep it going.



Look, when you come out the house in stockings with a thong on and pretend they are pants as you go out in public, attention is what you’re clearly seeking. Draya is gorgeous, I’ll give her that. But there’s more to being s*xy than just showing every ounce of your body (and that includes every corner and crack). Make that money though…

Azealia Banks

God forbid you tell this woman anything about her that she doesn’t agree with (she had some words for us on Twitter…nice talking to you, girl!), but let’s keep it real. When beefing with folks is your side-hustle and you even comment on the fact that said beefs have folks talking about you in their interviews, you kind of live for the attention. It’s all good, just own up to it! Now if she can just get everybody to put that same attention on her music, she will be a major problem.
