You know I am not the biggest fan of stars and celebrities having their own clothing lines and selling perfume and cologne. Yes, it generally makes them more money, but 95% of the time it is a product that doesn't need to be made or isn't all that great. I do think celebrity endorsements can be a very good thing and as much as I rag on Jessica Simpson, I think that whole Proactiv thing she did was one of the very best moves of her career. She had an acne problem, found a product she liked and has made a few million while getting herself on television for 30 minutes at a time.
Likewise, I think Fergie being the new spokesperson for MAC Viva Glam is one of the better moves of her career. Fergie has a beauty problem, found a product that covered her face to the point where at least mirrors don't break around her, and so now she is getting paid some bucks to endorse it. Now she won't be on television 30 minutes at a time, but I think exposing her to that kind of lighting for that length of time would show that no makeup line can be that good when it comes to Fergie. Better to keep it limited to photos and a quick glimpse of her in a 30 second commercial surrounded by people who do look good with or without makeup.
"MAC picks people like RuPaul, Mary J. Blige - people that are a little controversial and aren't afraid to speak their minds. I'm very proud to be a part of it."
What MAC does is pick people who wear a bunch of makeup for this particular line. Dita von Teese was the spokesperson last year. Dita wears a ton of makeup. RuPaul? Come on Fergie. Wake up and smell the reality. You are a very nice person, but not the best looking person out there. You never wondered why applying your makeup always takes longer than everyone else? Why the photos you take have to be airbrushed more than is normal? Ok, ok. Maybe the people around you aren't sharing, but I am. You need lots and lots of makeup. This is good for you. I'm sure they will give it to you for free for life now and as you are close to your 50's you need all that you can get.
