It's fascinating that someone can go from regular Joe (or Jane in this case) to super star because of a youtube video. Watching that video of her, I have to admit that the way she moves, smiles, expresses herself is almost hypnotic. She's a gorgeous woman, but I could see how it would be insanely frustrating for people who've spent their entire lives working to get to where she got when happenstance got her there.

Good for her though. I personally wouldn't be upset at all if I became an extremely famous (fill in the blank) because of the internet. Hell, A LOT of our media intake and socialization happens on the internet now, so I suppose it's no surprise that people can rise to stardom quickly when you've got a captive audience of millions. If you can get their attention, good on ya'.

As long as she's not affecting my paycheck I really don't care. She'll make her millions and be unhappy.

Sure she is a good looking girl, http://www.kateupton.com/ but that is only half of it, Lets see what she does with new found success, Truly pretty girls are not all that rare, Now getting one on your arm may be, but they're are a dime a dozen most never find fame or fortune.

easy on the eyes she is,

But as they say "No matter how attractive looking a women is someone is tired of putting up with her" Laughing

"Marriage is an institution, So is an Insane asylum I am simply not ready to be committed to either".

I don't get the comment "resembling a 1950s pinup" - am I missing something? I don't see any resemblance at all. He would have been better off writing "insert generic comment showing author finds girl attractive and convinced the Times to put her on the front page to attract more male readers".

Red Heads are bat shit crazy (red is nature's warning sign). I've had a run of brunettes and they've been hit or miss. Some have been great, some have shown some ugly colors over time, but overall brunettes seem safe. Actually, I'm dating one right now.

Never dated a blonde, but they sure are nice to look at. Twisted Evil

lol! Reading your post, I don't know whether she was not nor wasn't not, nor is not, "bat shit crazy." Giving her the benefit of the doubt, I'm willing to call her the exception. Wink
