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!
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!

without a doubt, Oksana Grigorieva is not your typical putaface celeb. This Russian born singer, songwriter, and music teacher hasn’t specifically had a very public career of her own, but rather she has been involved in a series of relationships with various well known people, which has put her in the limelight. Since 1989, she has been married to an unknown Russian guy, British artist Nicholas Rowland, actor Timothy Dalton, and then actor Mel Gibson.
It is her relationship with Gibson that has cause the most ruckus. First off, it would appear that she did a bit of a home wrecker job, blowing up Gibson’s long term marriage to Robyn Moore (29 years), and getting pregnant by him with their daughter Lucia. However, not all is well, and they have split up very publically, including wild accusations of abuse by Gibson, recording of his seemingly racist rantings, etc. Some people believe that Oksana may be gold digging, looking for that perfect settlement that will allow her to live her life in luxury. Others think that the accusations against Gibson are true. No matter what, Oksana Grigorieva has become a celeb putaface, always in the media!
Alyson Michalka isn’t your typical putaface celeb, but she is one of the Mouse House’s products. Best know for her roles in Disney series like Phil of the Future, she also made a pretty big impression in the movie Band Slam, where she played Charlotte Banks. She and her sister are a true musical act, originally called Aly and & AJ and now know as 78violet. She was recently the victim of a stalker who wanted to marry her, and seemed to know way too much about her, such as where her late pets were buried. How odd! She recently stepped up her visiblity with a role in the movie Easy A, and will come back in 2011 with roles in The Roommate and possibly other projects. This has of course lead to more media exposure, and more putaface time for her!
Katy Perry is a singer who made quite the splash and impression on the world with her debut single I Kissed a Girl (and I liked it). It sort of set the tone for this buxom lass from the UK, who has used her good looks and rather large natural breasts to get as much attention as possible, in true putaface fashion. Her combination of saucy lyrics and pop infused dance music has giving her a big jump, and she has become a true A list celeb in the last couple of years. Her very public marriage with comedic bad boy Russel Brand has only added to the deal, as celeb sites all over have been following these two up close and personal. Even their super friendly divorce got both of them more coverage, the true test of being a putaface!
I don’t think any collection of putafaces or fame whores would be complete without the exotic, the wild, the outrageous Tila Tequila, or as she wants to be called this week, Miss Tila. Born Tila Nguyen in Singapore, she has moved on to a career in self promotion, sort of a cheaper version of Paris Hilton. She has a very curvy (but not entirely natural) body and she has used her exotic looks and curves to get into many men’s non-nude mags, like Maxim. She had a show on MTV for a couple of seasons, A Shot of Love with Tila Tequila, and has continued to parlay that exposure into bigger and better things. She has been famously linked to the late Johnson and Johnson heir Casey Johnson. She was apparently engaged to be married to the billionaire heir as her lesbian wife, and pregnant with their child. Casey Johnson passed away from issues with drugs and diabetes, and the pregnancy just sort of stopped being an issue in Tila’s life. Now she has released a foul titled song called “I f—ked the DJ” and is trying on the Miss Tila moniker. A really talented Putaface who seduces the camera and the media any way she can!
