Lohan, Sheen, Fey, Winfrey.
Even if you’ve been living under a rock without wi-fi, you know who they are. The media has made damn sure of that.
“She writes hit movies and television shows! She impersonates crazy politicians! She pens best sellers celebrating her greatness!’
Yeah, yeah, she’s great, just ask her.
Of course, all three are lightweights compared to the Queen of All Media and soon the universe, no doubt. The media loves to exploit celebrites, but Oprah is the mistress of self-exploitation.
Now that Oprah‘s “last” show has aired, we can expect to see her smiling face EVERYWHERE. But let’s be clear, her brand now has its own network, a more suitable platform from which to launch the final stage in her plan for world domination.
It began with free swag for the audience, then she told people everywhere what to read.
Then she recruited experts in various fields, had them sign their souls away, and molded them into celebrity gurus.
Next she built a school to mold the next generation of “little Oprahs” (Which is an oxymoron if you think about it!) and now she’s going toe-to-toe with the network douchebags for supremacy of the airwaves.
I realize millions of people love her and have benefited from her efforts, but as for those of us who refuse to pledge allegiance to the Oprah flag, I’m afraid we’re out of luck.
She owns us already, we just haven’t found the brand on our scalp yet.
