There are some pretty questionable people (and even cartoon characters) who have been given stars on Hollywood's Walk of Fame . But as meager and momentary as some may seem , at least they are somehow related to the entertainment industry .
But in today's capitalist times everyone has to make a buck and within sneezing distance of Mikey Jackson and Frank Sinatra companies can buy their very own star for the sum of one million dollars . So far a couple of major brands have bit - namely L'Oreal and Absolut Vodka. This is wrong on so many levels.
Now , I can dig L'Oreal because makeup has a hell of a lot to do with Hollyweird - I mean have you ever seen Pam anderson without it? Yikes! And , while booze also has a lot to do with LALA Land , it's safe to say that it has been FAR from helpful . If you look at the names on the Stars , a fair number of them have DIED from things related to overindulgence . More people die in any given day from alcoholism than on 9/11 and we are not going to be giving Usama Bin Laden a star no matter how much cash he doles out.
