Are You Willing To Sleep Your Way To The Top?

"Pop!ular" is the latest single from Darren Hayes.. making a satire of pop music industry he sings "i want to be popular".. the video is a CLASSIC, the best music video i have seen in a while...

Credit goes to Ann, Laurina and SavagelyInsatiable...Here's the video from The Box.

just being a whore doesnt make you popular, it just makes you an object of contempt. now if youre charming and already popular and you sleep around thats an entirely diffrent thing.

Meh...depending on what was on offer, I'd sleep with a man if it got me what I truly desired more than anything...it's only sex after all...then again (before Gracie says it) so speaks a virgin, so maybe my view isn't worth much

(To be clear I was under the impression the topic was whether people were willing to use sex to get where they want in life..."popular" was just the tag chosen because of the song...but if I'm wrong please disregard...popularity for me is overrated)

I'm afraid popularity isn't worth being a slut. At least to me.

It depends on the situation/reward. Here's my philosophy on it:
Would you rather A: have a one night stand w/ Pamela Anderson, or
B: Have a years supply of spaghetti?

Personally, I would choose B, because spaghetti dosen't have Hepatitus C

LOL.

-------------

Popular like celebrity? Way to the top as who? As a corporate executive, politician, or something like a solo artist of some kind?

It doesn't seem worth it in my opinion. Sleeping around to get somewhere in those cases is just another indication of a lack of or no talent. You'd probably drop back down for failing to produce results.

This reminds me of a Jay Leno joke. John Kerry when he was a little boy often pretended that he was Robin Hood. Only John Kerry didn't steal from the rich, he slept with the Ketchup woman to become a member of the rich.

Eh, it's a free country, at least in the US. So maybe Britney Spears will end up marrying more times than J. Lo. and Liz Taylor combined.

Thats our girl

Sleeping your way to the top is generally a girl's thing. Taking advantage of guys who want to be taken advantage of. Turn it the otherway round. Bitchy cat fighting between the girls on the way to the top would hinder a guy's ascent. Sleeping with your ex's best friend? And then her best friend? Can you imagine the infinite hatred.

Who said anything about sleeping with women A lot of male bosses are not so inclined as to be open to a woman's charms...

I think that the whole idea of sleeping with someone to get your way is a sign of weakness. I mean, why cant an actor/actress just work hard at a piece/movie/whatever to gain reknown, instead of sleeping with someone high up in the charts. I would hate to see some of my favorite actors/actresses sleep with someone just so the public can talk about them, instead of the people complaining that they haven't heard anything from them.
Makes me very damn upset...

Don't think anyone was aiming this at Keira or at actors/actresses...just at US...at the end of the day, we all are willing to whore ourselves in some way for a paycheck. How many people do jobs they loathe just for the money? Why's that any worse than sleeping with the boss to make more money? I'd consider both to be selling out, but we all sell out, so <shrugs> don't see the problem.

I don't think so. I would rather have a job I enjoy, instead of doing something for the money. I like to have satisfaction that I contributed my skills for a better cause. If you have a job only for the sole purpose of making money/no benefit for helping others, than you shouldn't be working there.
No offense to Hollywood, BTW.

Oh, really? So that's where I've been going wrong!

Seriously...I agree in terms of a career, but what about making money in part time work? What about work while you're at college? You don't do it because you enjoy it. What about licking your boss' arse, metaphorically? We all do it...

To be honest...I'd never do anything I wasn't happy with...but the sex might be good I mean if your boss is hot, and sleeping with her is going to get you somewhere...seems like a genius plan to me.

Right now, I do have a summer job mowing lawns for the air base. It does get repetitive, but I like it when people complement me for a good job, rather than stocking groceries or some shit like that. Oh, I do agree with your comment on the sexy boss, Hazz, but there is no such thing in the hell hole that is Missouri

So this entire thread is all about "will you sleep with someone to get what you want?" The first time I saw this topic I thought it was something about a music video, then I figured this was somekind of music thread... so I tuned out. Seems I'm wrong, but to answer the question... to be honest I haven't really thought about it. There's nothing I really want enough at the moment to sleep with somebody. But to reassure that I am a man, sex would probably be the only reason.
