Celebrity PR: Sharon Stone from Topless to Over the Top

2009-11-17 by Richard D. Pace

Sharon Stone attended the Elton John Aids Benefit the other day, looking a little worse for the wear. After posing for Paris Match topless earlier this year, the 51 year old star evidently decided to take a new direction for this event. The result was simply not very appealing. Stone, wearing perhaps the worst outfit this writer has seen her in, also appeared to have had makeup issues. Some the photos coming out of the event show stone looking haggard and with lipstick issues as well. Sharon has had an up and down career, and up and down love life,... Read More >

In a staged appearance on Saturday Night Live, Madonna attacked Gaga in a Deep House Dish musical skit with Kenan Thompson and Andy Samberg. Some found it funny, but the whole deal reminded me of Diana Falzones's editorial on The Huffington Post - The Lost Art of Being a Lady. Madonna, who is already known for her hot temper, delivered Gaga a beautifully wrapped PR gift when she "interrupted" her performance, starting to pull Gaga's wig and yelling "What the hell is a disco stick?" This girls gone wildperformance is what can be seen as the essence of today's pop... Read More >
