Which celebrities are shameless self-promoters? These are people who relish in their celebrity status and actually believe their own hype.

Donald Trump has already been mentioned and boiker listed Kid Rock in the Apprentice thread.

My picks at this moment are: Jessica Simpson and Joan and Melissa Rivers .

I'd add America's newest celebrity, Assarom... I mean Omarosa Maginault-Stalworth, ro the list.

I'd add Geraldo Rivera and Michael Jackson to the list.

How about Cardinal? :p

or, I would say, His Highness, the Mayoral Royalty - Richard M. Daley.

He seems to be completely comfortable with dominating Chicago city politics.

Without a doubt, the talentless Ashton Kucher. I'm amazed that people will spend money to see his films!

Vanilla Ice was the poster child of self-promotion in the late 80s/early 90s. From time to time, he returns to VH1 to promote his latest recordings that validate him as a "talented artist" (I use the preceeding title loosely...very loosely).

Would anyone agree that Muhammad Ali is shameless at self-promoting as well? Although, he did back it up.

he was a self-promoter extraordinaire! Lots of self-promoters are in fact highly skilled and successful people......it's just that they like to toot their own horns :8: that sets some people off.

Let me add to the list 99% of all rap artists (practically an integral component of the art form)

Don King --- Oh, that's right he is a promoter, but he's also a celebrity.
Rush Limbaughsky
Little Richard (I'm just sick of seeing him)
Janet Jackson (as of late)

Carmen Electra and Dave Navarro
Don't you really think that Carmen is the driving force on that one? I can't say I see them that much, but I don't watch MTV either. She is a shameless self promoter using only her body and who she is sleeping with as tools.

What, just because I like to perch high up in a tree and belt out a tune? Hey, it isn't all about the showy red feathers, buddy! ;)
