An extremely talented marketer, who over more than twenty years has excelled in the aggressive selling of an otherwise not particularly desirable product -- herself. A triumph of style over substance. Her acting talent was recognized by her being awarded a special “Worst actress of the century” [Razzie] at the 2000 [Golden Raspberry] awards. (Has since seen the light and given up on acting). Also an author, her best known work being 1992’s “Sex”, which was sold sealed in plastic -- not because it was obscene, but because no one would have bought it if they were able to see how lame the contents really were. Also supposedly a musician.

A woman who is something of a paradox.
She has achieved the status of being one of the most successful female singers of all time, despite not having a particularly good voice and only being of average attractiveness.
Her success could be ascribed to 'strength of character', but, also paradoxically, she is an incredibly shallow, vacuous person, known for changing her 'personality' and image every few years in order to lengthen her career.
Her latest fad is to take children from Africa to use as fashion accessories. She is currently affecting a peculiar accent in a pretentious attempt to apparently try to sound 'english'. Has a reputation for being rude, ungracious and self-obsessed.
Has dabbled in acting at which she has proved to be a notable failure and a laughing stock, as she doesn't have any depth within her own character to draw on when creating roles.
