Back to Reality

20111207-122541.jpg

So this weekend sees the final of The X Factor UK and a brand new Popstar will emerge to mass applaud, critical success and worldwide praise and admiration.
Or will they purely win a Tv show then be forgotten about in 15 minutes until the next big entertainment show starts?

Let’s face it, The X Factor isn’t, and never has been, a show that showcases the best singers from the UK. It’s simply an entertainment show that showcases entertaining acts, sob stories and people that the simple minded music buyer will follow and become a fan of.

The X Factor is a show to give people who haven’t got an idea who to like in the Music world and option to follow somebody. I don’t want to say the shows for idiots, but it isn’t for people to watch and say
“That girl is going to be bigger than the Beatles” because that’s ridiculous. But you must also remember that bands like One Direction are causing the same mass hysteria than The Beatles created in the 60’s. But what separates them are the ability to make good music. Which always prevails regardless of popularity and winning a tv show.

20111207-122930.jpg

Reality TV is purely Entertainment and the ones with Normal folk becoming celebrities is the one appeal to why they are still around.
The Only Way is Essex is only popular because people connect to them. They have watched them go from being a normal civilian like themselves and move into a world a lot of people only dream of.

20111207-123012.jpg

People are constantly moaning about Reality TV and how dumbed down, commercial, pointless and a factory of creating so called Celebs, but what they fail to realise is the audience watching are wanting to see people made into celebs as they see it as a bridge between themselves and the people they are watching.

ShowBusiness as they call it, is defined by one simple rule.
– You must be liked and popular to sustain a career regardless of talent.

I’m a Celebrity get me out of here is a prime example of celebrities unsure of their own place in the world. So in order to get clarification of where they belong they go through this ordeal of pretty much exposing themselves in order to see how popular it works or in some cases doesn’t work.

So whether you like it or not Reality TV is here and has a fan base. If people are so offended by it then they need to start re-evaluating there own morals.

But some reality tv shows can be a right old Cu………

Tut Tut Tulisa!

Tut Tut Tulisa!

Now after trawling for stories, I came across this pedantic little gem about Tulisa maybe getting in trouble for advertising her Perfume subtly and subliminally via her tattoo, that she’s had for many years, way before any deals of a perfume were due out.

This goes to show how petty Ofcom really are and how Television rules on advertising is getting ridiculous. Nobody watches advert’s nowadays, so let them subtly advertise this way. I’d rather see the odd arm tattoo than sit through 3 minutes every 5 minutes of annoying adverts!

The X Factor judge Tulisa Contostavlos could reportedly be banned from making her signature arm gesture at the start of each broadcast, after Ofcom investigated complaints that it constitutes advertising of her perfume.
The N-Dubz singer starts each show by holding her arm up sideways revealing a tattoo saying, The Female Boss, which is the name of her new fragrance launched last month.
The media regulator has received a number of complaints that showing the tattoo breaks rules governing the promotion and reference of commercial products by on-screen talent.

Ofcom is also said to be investigating a segment in ITV2 spinoff show, The Xtra Factor, which referred to The Female Boss and discussed Tulisa’s signature gesture.

The watchdog will judge whether brandishing the Female Boss tattoo so clearly to the camera is in breach of its broadcasting rules, reports The Guardian. Should the regulator decide that it is, Tulisa could be banned from doing the gesture in future broadcasts.

Ofcom has not yet decided whether to launch a separate investigation into swear words emblazoned on Rihanna‘s shoes during last night The X Factor results show.

The ITV1 series has regularly got into trouble with Ofcom, including a ruling in January that the show was in breach of product placement rules after presenter Dermot O’Leary appeared to encourage viewers to download songs from guest acts on the programme.

Last month, ITV1’s This Morning programme was criticised by Ofcom for allowing Britain’s Got Talent judge Amanda Holden to promote a group of law firms she was backing.
