It’s good to be infamous

The verdict is out. It’s good to be bad and it’s bad to be good. No tongue in cheek intended here. All I’m trying to say is that naughty is in and nice is out. Look at Himesh Reshammiya, Mallika Sehrawat, Rakhi Sawant, Rahul Mahajan, Payal Rohatgi, Monika Bedi and the likes. All these people have made news for all the wrong reasons. Himesh Reshammiya’s nasal tones were mocked at while Rakhi and Mallika were despised for their bold clothing. Rahul Mahajan has had a tryst with drugs and Payal Rohatgi is infamous for her cheeky dance numbers. But what is astonishing is that each one of them have converted their negative strides into their publicity vehicles and marched towards success!

You can’t deny Reshammiya’s act in Karzz and Aap Ka Surroorrrrrr. And well… we can’t event stop ranting about Big Boss 2 and the gossips there in.

Some of the global stars follow the same league. Look at Britney Spears, Kurt Cobain, Courtney Love, Kate Moss. Who remembers their jigs and jives? All we remember is that they were in news for doping, drug abuse, marrying out of turn etc etc.

The moral of the story is – It’s good to be infamous than be famous.

There’s a website dedicated to infamous people. It’s called - http://www.hallofinfamy.com/. This is a treatise to all these so called ‘infamous’ personalities from world over.

My questions still is – Is it good to be infamous? Share your answers in the ‘comments’ section.

Absolutely...I would like to add in one more name... Amy Winehouse. That woman has just launched just one album that too long ago. She's in news for all the wrong reasons...

Hi Yoj...Good observation I wud say...Though I don't believe that being infamous is anyway good...It's just the media thats making ppl like Rakhi Sawant, Payal Rohatgi, Abu Salem, Daud a hero...Just wanna say that asinine acts, however common, can never be called good.

Chori zyaada hone lage toh iska matlab yeh toh nahi ki hum bhi chor ban jaaye.

Dont reinforce what the Media is trying to show...We still have people like Abhinav Bindra, MS Dhoni, Vijender Singh, Rahul Gandhi, who have been in the news for gud reasons and are not involved in any controversies.

God Bless,
