Rita Ora is a bit of a weird case in the entertainment world, because she is sort of an odd combination of talent and shameless self promotion. Rita Ora is actually from Kosovo, but moved to the UK early in her life. Her singing career started in 2005 or so, and while she has appeared all over the place including on a Roc Nation TV commercial, it’s only only in mid to late 2012 that her debut album was released. This after appeared in videos with Drake and Jay-Z, owner of Roc Nation. During the build up to her album, she toured with Coldplay, and has also pretty much shamelessly promoted herself with sexy pictures and such through the UK tabloids. She’s also become famous for a couple of rather obvious wardrobe malfunctions, which have left her breasts exposed. She’s not shy at all about any of it, and promotes herself with tons and tons of pictures and generally online putaface activity.

Here’s one of those cases where it’s hard to tell where the serious stops and the self-ridicule begins. Patricia Krentcil is known as the Tanning Mom after she was arrested (and subsequently cleared) of child endangerment for letting her child go with her to a tanning salon. At the time, this “Mom” (yes, in quotes) had skin that could be best described as shoe leather, sort of the same color as a brown hush-puppy. It was marginally like bad black face done with brown shoe polish. Anyway, She got semi-famous because (a) sites like TMZ caught onto the story and (b) because she tends to bring the weird ever so slightly. Okay, people seem to find her to be a bit of a nutjob. However, she does have a send of self promotion that makes her a true putaface, and this week Tanning Mom shot a series of 100 or so topless (eek!) images on a beach, using them as a sales pitch to Vivid Entertainment for them to pay her a ton of money to make a sex tape. Steve Hirsh of Vivid declined her generous offer with this: “Unfortunately we don’t have a granny porn section on Vivid.com, but we feel your look would be perfect for radio. You could talk about everything you’ve ever done on a tanning bed.”. Yeah, you have a face for radio, Tanning Mom is shot down in flames!
There is a very special class of Putaface, one that goes above and beyond the call of duty. They are the girls of “Teen Mom”. These are girls who, finding themselves pregnant in their teen years (usually around 16) then turn to MTV and become reality TV stars. Farrah’s case is a little bit special, because she has tried to carry that reality show stardown forward, as an aspiring model and actress. That has included her getting plastic surgery, which included a pair of what can only be described as stripper boobs. With her flame of stardom perhaps flickering slightly, she devises a simple but ineffective plan. She made a “home porn movie” which was suppose be released as “stolen”, but her co-star (and porn guy) James Deen pretty much let the cat out of the bag, and now Farrah is shopping it pretty much as a regular celeb video. She’s getting lot of play on TMZ, but this could either be her last go round as a Putaface, or her first step towards a “career” in adult movies.
I have to say that the first thing about Julianne Hough that surprised me is finding out that she is only 24, considering how busy she has been, and also because she looks much more mature (some might say used up). She is best known either for her top selling country music albums, or for her two time champion status as the professional dancer on Dancing With Stars (US edition). Then again, it may be also because she has been connected with a few very powerful men, most recently dating the 21st century Dick Clark replacement, Ryan Seacrest. She’s also been seen out and photographed in quite a collection of tiny little bikinis, showing off a very sexy look and generally seducing the cameras, keeping her star power high. She ranks well enough that almost anything about her is instant fodder for the online tabloid sites like TMZ. Safe to say at such a young age, this putaface is likely to keep filling out screens for a long time to come.
Anne Hathaway is the sort of actress that you wouldn’t think needs to pander to the paps, doesn’t need to putaface to keep her name in the media. She’s a talented actress who has gotten Academy Award nominations, and doesn’t seem to be short of work or things to do. Yet she has also had a string of weird things happen, and has not been shy to appear topless in movies and such. In February 2013, she won the Best Supporting Actress in Les Miserables, while wearing a dress that made it look like it was very, very cold. In fact, that dress pretty much her the internet hit of the year, making her the best dressed Putaface for this year’s awards shows!
Toni Braxton is one of those celebs that always seems to be on the edge of trouble, and when she gets there, she seems to want to do it all in public. While the start of her career was promising, she seemed to lose her way even as things were laid at her feet. She replaced Wayne Newton in Vegas as a 6 night a week feature performer, but had to drop it due to chest pains and sickness. Her deals with record labels and management has always left her on the wrong end of things, and now in 2012, she finds herself bankrupt and reportedly nearly 50 million in debt – a stunning number. She has even reportedly been interested in posing for Playboy for money, which would be an interesting step for this very sexy 40 something MILF.

In the world of putafaces, some girls will go almost anything to get the media’s attention. One of the most popular ones is the accidental, intentional nipple flash. One of the worst ones in my mind is the pregnant mom pics. Jemima Kirke, of of the stars of the HBO series Girls, is taking it to the full extreme with these new shots from Vice, not only showing off her baby bump (baby number 2, for those of you keeping score at home) but she also lets them take shots of her topless, with her milk filled breasts entirely exposed. It seems like a way to get people talking, and I guess I am guilty of feeding the machine here too, right? I just think it’s pretty sad if this is what you have to do to get attention. Oh, her reason? She’s not an actress, she’s an artist. Remember that.
It’s rare that I say this, but outside of perhaps Lady Gaga, Courtney Stodden has turned out to be one of the best putafaces around. What makes her even more interesting (besides her titanic bosoms) is that she apparently isn’t really selling anything or trying to accomplish and particular goal with her putafacing. She appears to be fame for the sake of fame, sort of like Kim Kardashian without the sex tape. Perhaps that will change now that Courtney Stodden is 18. See, outside of her bustline, Courtney is best known for marrying 50+ year old actor Doug Hutchison when she was 16. Since then, she has been on a pretty much non-stop campaign to make sure everyone has seen her cleavage. Now at 18, she wants to go one step further, to pose in Playboy. Reports are that Playboy isn’t interested… I guess old Hef doesn’t like married girls!
Avril Lavigne’s life as a star and celeb have been sort of well plotted out from the start. This Belleville Ontario born (and Napanee raised) singer got her really big break appearing on stage with Canadian sweet heart Shania Twain at the the age of 15. By 16 she had a record deal, and by 17 she charted hard with her album Let’s Go. From there it’s been a wild ride, with a marriage at a young age to fellow Canadian Rocker Deryck Whibley from Sum 41, who certainly touched her musical style. But that didn’t last, and the latest move for this cute girl has been to get engaged to Nickelback front man Chad Kroeger. Apparently she likes Canadian rockers or something. She’s been doing the putaface routine with her $350,000 engagement ring, proof that something it pays to be a putaface!
Emma Stone is one of those girls who is certainly using a little putaface magic to seduce the cameras and keep her star burning bright, but unlike many, it seems to be a supplement to her actual successful career, and not the career itself. This cute 20 something redhead got her big break as Laurie Partridge on the odd “Next Partridge Family” show, which in turn lead to her appearing on a number of TV shows in small rolls. Her big break came in the role of Jules in Superbad, a movie that seems to have done wonders for many actors and actresses. Her latest movie is the new Spiderman flick, and she is riding that star as high as it goes, with covers for UK Vogue and more. Plenty of hot putaface power for Emma Stone!
Amanda Bynes is a sexy blond California girl, an actress who started out doing commercials at about age 7 or 8, and then doing stage and live shows for a while. She also appeared as a child actor on shows from Nickleodeon and was a regular cast member on Figure It Out and All That. At 16, she appeared in her first full length movie, and went on from there. While there was a period of time where she wasn’t quite 18 but was attracting a lot of attention. Since she has turned adult, the Putaface factor has turned way up, and this sexy 20 something girl is no longer shy to use her sexy assets to get people’s attention. She’s got an amazing hot look, long legs, and isn’t shy with the cleavage to seduce the camera. She’s also been in a few problems recently, including a DUI charge in 2012. She’s certainly not shy to show off for the cameras and to stay in the public lime light!
Jennifer Lawrence is an American born actress who has certainly been getting a lot of talk time in the last couple of years. While still only 21 years old, she has already been nominated for an Academy Award and has starred in high profile mass market movies like X-men: First Class. IN 2012, she will be starring in the much awaited The Hunger Games movie, as Katniss Everdeen. However, she hasn’t just kept her camera seduction to work time, this girl is a stunning sexy blond with a very nice figure, and she hasn’t been shy to show it off, including lingerie / bra shoots, and getting her body painted up special for an X-men scene, which left little to the imagination. She’s not shy to give the paps some fun too, showing up in plunging necklines, showing off her very wonderful assets. This is one girl who knows how to Putaface for the cameras!
Nicki Minaj is one of those music stars who has sort of gone all out and all over to try to raise people’s awareness of her. She changes looks about as often as most people change socks, and she has a very strong sexual element to her look and attitude. Born Onika Tanya Maraj in Trinidad and Tobago in 1984, she is a truly unique girl to look at, and she uses those unique looks to stand out. She’s got a very strong rap style, very fast patter and she isn’t shy to broad naughty subjects. Her debut album Pink Friday took off and from there, it’s been a wild putaface ride of changing styles, flashing cleavage, and general attention getting. Nicki Minaj knows how to work it!

In the hyper competitive world of the Hong Kong TV and movie industry, girls often have to work very hard to get noticed and to get ahead. Many of the star performers started out as beauty queens or swim suit models. Katy Kung (full name Katy Kung Ka Yan) is no exception, this cute 22 year old got her start at 16 as a magazine model, her sweet smile and very nice overall look did her very well. She soon signed on with TVB (one of the major channels in Hong Kong) and has since appeared in 5 of their drama series, most recently When Lanes Merge (情越雙白線). She hasn’t been shy about her good looks, posting up some very nice and sexy stuff, including plenty of bikini and beach pictures. She’s not shy to promote herself with her great looks and sweet smile!
Lea Michele is proof that stars often come after years of working it hard on the stage. She did plenty of work on New York on various musicals as she was growing up, and her petite size and looks have allowed this cute star to play roles as a teen well into her twenties (she was born in 1986). In 2009, this musical stage actress got her big break as Rachel Berry in the massive hit show Glee, where she plays the top singer in a high school musical club. She has an impressive voice, but I suspect many guys just tune in to see this sexy star in schoolgirl uniforms and such. Recent stories has her turning into a bit of a diva, including being very upset about a food fight scene for Glee, as there would be meatballs thrown and she is a Vegan. How odd!

Mila Kunis is one of those sexy stars that has sort of snuck into the big times through the back door. She started acting at 9, and made her TV debut (On the John Laraquette show of all things) at 12. She got incredibly popular as Jackie Burkhart on That 70s Show, which made her a pretty big star. Remarkably, this sexy star is also the voice of the dowdy Meg Griffin on The Family Guy, and did some stuff for Robot Chicken as well. She had moved onto making movies, including a part in the hot Black Swan movie, and now as a co-star with Justin Timberlake in Friends With Benefits. She recently got a true putaface boost by having Timberlake feel up her boobs at the MTV awards, as she grabbed his crotch. This girl works the media, that is for sure! She has also shocked many people by turning up in 2012 as the girlfriend for her That 70′s Show costar Aston Kutcher, as his apparent rebound from a horrible marriage to Demi Moore, another famous putaface celeb.
Blake Lively (born Blake Christina Lively) is a Southern California girl who has started to make it big in Hollywood. Well, actually, we know she has made it big in Hollywood because she appears to be the replacement for Bar Rafelli on the arm of Leonardo DiCaprio, which is a major coup in Hollywood terms. This has taken her from TV scripted Reality show star to mega star in one big step. Suddenly all the media are following this girl as she does the Putaface thing for the camera. She has had an odd career so far, appearing in movies with Justin Long (Apple guy from the commercials, his movies are all the kiss of death it seems), and finally landing a role on the non-reality shows Gossip Girl. She’s a really cute girls too, and gets lot of attention for her sexy good looks, but Blake Lively is all putaface and more than willing to smile for the cameras!
Kiele Sanchez (pronounced Kee-Lee) is an American actress of mixed French and Puerto Rican background. She has sort of been on the edge of fame for nearly 10 years. She first tried out to be an MTV VJ, and actually made it into the final step of the competition. She has appeared in a few TV shows (like Lost, but she was apparently blown out because the fans didn’t like her character much), and pilots that didn’t get picked up. She also did some incredibly hot shots for stuff magazine and appearing in a number of movies, best known for her semi nude scene in The Getaway with Milla Jovich. About a year ago, she got picked up for an A&E original show called The Glades, starring opposite Matt Passmore, and she hasn’t looked back since. She is a very unique looking girl and appeals to many men, and has turned out to be quite popular. With the second season of this show, this sexy Latina actress is making more public appearances and is moving on with other movies as well!

I think that any politician who wants to get elected has to be a bit of a putaface, they have to want to seduce the camera. Sarah Palin is a masterful putaface, someone who really knows not only how to seduce the camera, but how to weasel her way in front of it at every turn possible. She started out as a small town Alaska mayor, quit that and moved on up to Governor of Alaska, and quit that to try to run for Vice President with John McCain. That didn’t work, but Sarah Palin didn’t shy away, instead she wrote books, hosted a reality show on Discovery, works for Fox News as a “commentator”, has appears on other TV shows, and became the spiritual leader of the Tea Party movement. At this point, the question is Will Sarah Palin Run in 2012? . She keeps trying to putaface for the camera and remain in the public eye. She could be the first woman President of the US.

I think by definition, any girl who works as a model has either a natural or a learned skill in being a putaface. After all they are selling a look, a style, and more. In the case of Adrianne Curry, she got famous as the winner of America’s Next Top Model, which is certainly a show for being a putaface and selling yourself and your look. She is more than willing it seems to do anything to get attention, one quote from today was “Neil Patrick Harris (@ActuallyNPH) didn’t tweet a picture of his boobs (that’s Adrianne Curry’s job),”, which is sort of a good indication as to what lengths she will go to get attention. She will be starring on Playboy Channel’s Celebrity Sex Tapes program, and spent some time on Howard Stern’s show promoting it and doing what Stern show visitors do. Putaface indeed!
