In the US the most popular celebrity is that Kardishian woman. I really don’t know much about her but I understand she got popular in the US after she released a sex tape where she sucked on someone’s dick?

Now this is a woman with some very good skills that I’d like to marry:

So I've read up some on Li Ziqi and it does seem there was a healthy dose of luck, but also business acumen credited to her success. I'll try to sum up what I know:

She was raised by her grandparents in rural China after the death of her father (her stepmother was abusive, mother's whereabouts unknown), which is how she learned to farm and cook. Not long after, her grandfather also passed. By age 14, they were struggling hard and she went to work in the city as a waitress or DJ or whatever she could do to support herself and her grandmother. She also took advantage of workshops in the city to learn about business management and video editing, which she would apply later.

She made many attempts to get her friends to start a business with her, but couldn't get it off the ground or enough support. She was still in her early 20s when her grandmother became ill, and she had to move out of the city and back home to help farm.

She didn't have a lot of skills, but she could cook, and she could make beautiful videos, so she did. She started with opening an online shop to sell produce, which made very little. The videos were made to promote her shop on a Chinese social platform, but almost no one noticed and it got very few likes.

But out of the blue, sheer luck really, the Chinese social platform featured her video on its front page. Her videos went viral.

Using what training she had from pursuing her dreams in the city, she designed her own business model and created her own management business and made the video blogging into a success, though she insists she doesn't make millions like people claim and if she did, she wouldn't be staying up all night editing videos.

Also her harshest critics claim the videos are fake which is hurtful, but they don't provide any evidence to substantiate those claims, so the rumors are mostly contained in China.

I've always been sickened by the idolization of people because of their wealth. Wealth hoarding should be something we find appalling, not as life goals.

Paramount, You cherry picked to celebrities.Ashton Kutcher is pretty famous and saves people from sexual slavery, Im sure I could fins some chinese celeb thats less flattering to compare.

As for Kim Kardashian, I'm not sure she is the most famous person. She hasnt even had a tv show for years afaik.

Her family is famous because of her father bein a famous lawyer and she and her sisters are attractive and slutty dressers.She also has an insanely abnormally large ads...like its not normal.

Armenians tend to do very well in the US.Very often some of the most successful immigrants.

My brothers granddaughter last year was a bit obsessed with Jojo Siwa posts on Youtube. Turns out a lot of other people were as well because she is worth 14 million now.

I'm thinking Kim isn't top three celebrity status even within her own family any longer. One of the younger ones was in the news a couple of days ago but I didn't pay attention as to why.

The two people I watch most on Youtube is a guy that shows how to tie different flies for fishing videos and Modern Renaissance Man when he reacts to music he hasn't heard before.

Kargen, The youngest one is stupid rich, even more than the others because of a makeup deal.

As for YT

Joe Rogan-Of course.

Im also addicted to Tribal people try, where as you guessed it Tribal people try stuff, usually food.

John Riggs is good, he does a lot of retro gaming stuff for NES/Snes.

I tried Joe Rogan but gave up for the same reason I never liked talk radio. I want to argue back instead of only listen.
So most the time I listen to music.

“Also her harshest critics claim the videos are fake which is hurtful“

I was leaning toward that by the time it got to her making her own silk on top of everything else... plus it’s China (all are born into the thief class of skills)
