Being odd has its own way of catching the eye of attention. Lorde, Ke$ha, Lady Gaga, Kanye West, John Lennon can be few beneficiaries of that in the continent of music.
You can be weird in so many ways, the way you behave, talk, act, walk, sing or even dance. Some however will like to go pass the energy needed to be odd in the ways stated above. Thus, they will love to sit back and watch weirdom as it works without killing their breath.
This is where fashion comes in. When you dress, you need not talk, sing, act or even walk in a different mannerism to gain the spotlight. The Walkashame is not needed at all. The only difference that may come from public reaction depends on whether the weird dresser is a Celeb or the normal human walking on the streets of Agbogbloshie.
When a Celeb, they’ll see it as the normal thing done to create gimmicks to help an album, line or movie sell. The entertainment news analysts will have a huge read from that as well. But the normal person might not have such treatment on the onset.
Lunacy will be the best attribute to someone whose fame can’t be measured with that of Rihanna when walking around the linear settlements of the ACP estates all dressed in pj’s and a pair of sneakers.
But time will pass and the normality with the weirdity in dressing will be considered a fashion style trending. Who knew torn jeans will one day be bought deliberately at the boutique of extravagance. Very few thought of this day, but its now a reality in casuality. And it seems to work well for many lovers of fashion.
Number 1 tip to be famous within the shortest possible time, BE WEIRD in your attire.
Number 2, make sure there are people with a smart phone and camera around. They’ll work on your publicity and promotion absolutely for free.
