Question for the day : Famous Endorsements

So the question of the day is... if you were famous... What would you NOT endorse no matter how much money they paid you? We all can fall victim to the dollar amount being right enough for us to endorse something. For instance... why is Keyshia Cole on a perm box???

I went through this one over and over again in my head as to why this would be a good idea and came up with nothing but they had to be slanging hella dough. I'm not even famous and I just don't see being on a perm box as something that I would be excited to endorse even though perms are my BEST friend. She's on the cover of the SUPER box too, so that means she has that extra course stuff.

Now with that said, I'd even look jacked up in one of those Dr. Miracle commercials for the right price, but at Keyshia's level of celebrity, I kinda think its beneath her to end up on the perm box.

So the question for the day... what product could you NOT endorse, no matter how much they were going to pay you, you just couldn't do it. Act like we're not in a recession on this one...lol.

I would not endorse Valtrex for NO amount of money!!!! lol

Mimi May 21, 2009 at 10:08 AM

LOL ^^^^^ I was gonna say the same thing! I just could not do a herpes commercial! LMBO!

Tunde May 21, 2009 at 10:28 AM

i wouldn't endorse anything that i don't personally already use. well i'm lying. they would have to pay me a whole lot more to actually endorse something i don't use/eat. for example.

any type of seafood
old spice (sans body wash)
enzyte
etc.

Products that I would gladly endorse:

Sobe Life Water
Pepsi
Degree
Colgate
St. Ives
Nike
American Eagle
Hollister
Etc.

LMAO @ Coarse stuff but Yeah Keyshia Should Have Never done That!

Yeah Never Any STD Commercials.

Absolutely Not!

I swear this must be a Taurus thing.
My sisters bday is on th 15th.
We went to sally's and I didn't even notice her.
And sister was like "what the hell is keyshia doing in sallys? surely she aint that desperate for cash. and she allowed them to put her on the super box"
lol!
and i must admit....i wonder how much money they did they sling her?

had to have been a pretty penny, but still....

Any of the STD's products. Hell I don't think I would be able to do it if I weren't famous. Damn I'm not famous anyway. lol

Even though I love me some liquor and chicken, I wouldn't do it. Just don't seem right.

I agree that its real random seeing her on a perm box..but i fell victim and scooped it up one day and it sure had me up the next morning with baby hair like u would not imagine! *sidenote: I do not rock baby hair, just woke up with it popping off*

As far as endorsements, I'm gonna have to roll with "Tunde." I'd only endorse things I use unless the numbers were looking riiiiight and it didnt go against my morals (yeah I got those!). oooh and I will not be on nobodies commercial talking about "before i had herpes..." NO NO NO! bet money everyone of them aint had a date since they plastered they mug on tv talking that trash.

Actually I am surprised more celebs dont endorse hair products, we KNOW they use it, why front?

But Im not endorsing any pills that do anything.

Mr.Slish May 21, 2009 at 4:52 PM

I dunno...Why not she still makes good music...besides its not like she had stylist her entire life maybe she used products like this one before she blew up....lol

Keith May 21, 2009 at 9:04 PM

I could not endorse any Laxatives or products like Gas-X..I'd be laughing too much and couldn't make it through the commercial.

Rich Fitzgerald May 21, 2009 at 11:51 PM

Any erectile dysfunction product.

augusta May 22, 2009 at 2:38 AM

well, she wouldn't be the first.. kelly rowland is on dark and lovely (relaxer) boxes, and i think i saw brandy on some weave posters a while ago.

Eb the Celeb May 22, 2009 at 8:12 AM

@clnmike - its not really the endorsing that I have a prob with, its being the face of the product... you didn't see Diddy on the Proactiv box. I would have no prob with Keyshia being in a commercial but on the damn perm box... just doesnt seem right.

@augusta - for some reason... b/c my mind is crazy that way, but I think it was OK for kelly. Quite frankly it probably helped her out more than she helped them. I know that aint right. And that is Brandy's weave... that's her line... so I can understand her being all over the packages cuz its her ish.

Kelly Rowland needs all the work she can get. Beggars can't be choosers.

And why is it surprising that KC is on a perm box? SHE'S HOOD! She probably uses that isht for real! If not, you know Frankie and NeNe do! But seriously, she probably signed on to do those ads before she became more mainstream.

I couldn't endorse any type of weaponry, like guns.

Super Dave Van Buren May 22, 2009 at 11:25 AM

I'd never do a check cashing commercial. My mom would worry me to death thinking I'm actually broke.

The Jaded NYer May 22, 2009 at 1:06 PM

I wouldn't endorse cigs, soda (even though they got MAD loot!) or stuff I didn't already use or didn't like. basically I need to actually like it and know it's not dangerous in order to endorse it (I got babies to think about) otherwise I'm ready. Hell, Mixed Chicks sent me free products AND a tshirt for raving about their stuff... I'm on my way LOL

blackwomenblowthetrumpet.blogspot.com May 22, 2009 at 4:48 PM

Okay let's consider Keisha Cole's image... she's gggggghetto and she does not have an image like Beyonce so I doubt seriously that L'Oreal has her in mind...

She's got a fan base that buys that product so I think the endorsement makes sense... next up....she'll be endorsing Mad Dog 20/20...or Alize....

SpicyJambalaya May 24, 2009 at 7:29 AM

You know those feminine commercials where women talk about the itchy kitty or "not feeling fresh"....can't do it.

LMAO @ blackwomenblowthetrumpet!!! She's right though. Loreal won't be trying to airbrush Keke's tats and now that she's got Frankie and Neffie associated publicly with her, I think she will always be in the ghetto box no matter how refined she looks compared to her beginnings.

Tamstyles May 25, 2009 at 6:12 AM

my first time at your blog! great question though...but i dont know!

B-More BAP May 25, 2009 at 1:49 PM

LOL @ Keyshia. When I saw her in the beauty supply, I was like Word Keish? Is this where we're going with this?

But I'm with Tee on what I wouldn't promote! Nevaaaa!

glennishamorgan May 26, 2009 at 1:00 PM

Hmmm.I knew Keyshia was a spokesmodel for Pink but, I had no idea she was on a perm box! Me personally I don't advocate perms so I sure hell wouldn't want to be on the box. I guess in the celeb word money is money and it all spends so they don't really care where it's coming from.

suga May 27, 2009 at 1:35 AM

Actually gotta cosign with whoever said Keyshia made a good move. Whats wrong with the perm box, especially for Keyshia Cole? Especially if its a perm that hella people buy?

Funny tho because I doubt she has a relaxer. Her father was white. She has semi straight/curly hair.

wynsters the tigress May 27, 2009 at 7:14 PM

i'm okay with keyshia on the box...although i did do a double take to make sure it was her...
