7 Celebrities Who Used Sex For Fame!

No, really. That’s what Lana said in a recent interview with 3M360 magazine. She banged dudes in the music industry in hopes of landing a record deal.

When that didn’t work, she was shamefully forced to resort to talent and hard work to boost her career. It’s the saddest of tales.

But where Lana failed, many others have succeeded.

 

 

Kim Kardashian

 

Kim Kardashian has slept with plenty of famous guys. Her sex tape wih Ray J provided the blueprint for using bedroom antics to gain international fame

 

In fact, for every obvious example of a starlet who sexed her way to the A-list (looking at you Kim Kardashian), there are probably a dozen less apparent cases of aspiring actresses, models, and pop stars who got to the top by getting on top. 

 

Kim, of course, is a pioneer, because with the Ray J sex tape, she proved that given the right PR person (ideally your soulless momager), you can bang someone who isn’t even particularly famous or powerful and still use your sexcapades to get rich.

 

In fact, Kim almost single-handedly launched the idea of sex tape as savvy career move, and her bedroom antics became such a hot topic that her whole family went on to achieve mega-fame despite the fact that the androgynous White Walker known as Bruce Jenner is the only one among them to ever demonstrate any talent. 

In fact, Kim’s sisters are so famous, they’ve completely flipped the script and men are now sleeping with them to become famous!

So which male Kardashian-banger made our list of the seven most shameless famewhores? Jump into the gallery above to find out! Just be sure to wash your hands afterward.

Some of these folks really get around.

Farrah Abraham

Farrah Abraham

 

Farrah made a porn disguised as a “celebrity sex tape.” While everyone on this list used sex to boost their career, Farrah is the only one delusional to lie to herself about it.

Paris Hilton

Paris Hilton

 

Kim’s former BFF Paris also skyrocketed to A-list status thanks in part to her sex tape. Paris, of course, wasn’t as adept at sustaining her fame.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Kendra Wilkinson

 

These days Kendra is in news thanks to her husband’s sexual proclivities. But there was a time when an unknown Kendra decided – like so many women before her – to sleep with Hugh Hefner in exchange for fame.

 

 

Chelsea Handler

Chelsea was sleeping with Comcast CEO Ted Harbert at the time she landed her own late night show. Handler admits that her relationship helped her career, but claims that Harbert merely “recognized talent.”

 

Scott Disick

 

Scott Disick

 

Yes, Disick began sleeping with Kourtney just before she rose to fame on Keeping Up With the Kardashians. The fact remains, Disick is now a household name simply because he sleeps with someone much more famous than himself

 

Lil Kim 

Lil Kim

 

We start and end the list with Kims. Lil Kim is undeniably talented in her own right, but may have never gotten her start in the music biz were it not for her sexual relationship with Notorious B.I.G. It just goes to show – if you’re gonna try and sleep your way to the top, choose your partners carefully.
