“All press is good press.” This seems to be the motto some A, B and C-list celebs live by. As long as people are talking, tweeting and blogging about them, they’re as happy as can be. And some people know how to use publicity stunts to their best advantage. If you’re not a household name but want to be, just release a dirty tape. If your album sales suck, just change your name or expose a body part. As ridiculous as these stunts are, they seem to work.
