The Attention Whore

I debated about writing this blog because I know that some 'friends' and 'acquaintances' of mine might feel that this is directed at them, and to be quite honest - it probably is! Now keep in mind that this is dedicated towards the female attention whores in my life.

I'm sure you've all had a specific friend in time that has craved all the attention in the world whether you were at a highly publized event, a gathering of friends, a club, etc....and somehow you always wanted to shove a sock in their mouth wanting them to shut the fuck up, right?!

Throughout my life, I have met many people who I considered 'friends' and have also met alot of 'attention whores' in the process. Now if you're not sure what I consider an 'attention whore', it's quite simple - a person who craves and desires the attention and will basically do anything to get it. Yes, we've all encountered them but have you ever wondered why they are the way they are? I've come to realize that the main reason these people act the way they do is because THEY ARE INSECURE! The AW wants everybody to think that they are the coolest people out there when in reality, they are lonely people that can't handle the fear of being rejected.

It's sad to say but an AW (for short) has issues with not being the center of attention. Their insecurities are so deep that if they step into a room and don't get the 'all eyes on me' look - they feel as though something is wrong with them. Automatically, the feeling of not being acknowledged becomes somehow a sign of fear. They feel that what they are wearing looks akward, or maybe the makeup they put on is smudged, or maybe their shoes are not the right fit - all this to say that they think that something is wrong with them when in reality, people are simply busy having fun and just don't care to pay them in any mind.

If an AW could have a post it on their forehead stating "LOOK AT ME", they probably wouldn't even hesitate to do it. It's actually quite funny because all the AW's I have met are exactly the same. They want to meet everybody you know, and want to add them to every social media possible (Facebook, Twitter, etc) - not realizing that at the end of the day, they are simply one other entry in someone else's friendslist. Think about it, who cares how many friends you have on Facebook or Twitter? Who cares how many people you know?

It's not hard to come accross an AW, you can spot them a mile away. For example, if you walk into a club - look for the loudest bitch or jackass in the room and automatically you know they are 'the' attention whores of the night. Most of the time, they are popping bottles in an outerly LOUD fashion or buying drinks at the bar to anybody they know or 'hope' to get to know better. If they aren't doing so, then they are dancing in a outrageously sexual manner that makes any man want to grab their 'assets'. They could also be recognized by what they are wearing - tight skinned mini dress that shows an excessive amount of breasts or legs, or it can also be an outfit with excessively bright colors making Jessica Alba look as spontaneous as Lady Gaga. An AW can come close to not wearing any clothes at all in order to get the looks and stares they sooooo crave. Either way, they want you to whisper "LOOK AT HER" - and if they succeeded in doing that - then you, my friend, have fallen into the AW's trap.

I find it amusing when I look at celebrities and notice that they are deliberately becoming attention whore's because of the PR team behind them. Look at Kim Kardashian and Nicky Minaj's teams - do you really think they don't want people talking about how big their buttocks look? Or why Miley Cyrus' innocent look has turned out to look more like a tramp in the last few months? Common dude, you know there's a big industry behind the creation of an AW - the spotlight has to be on them in order to make 'mucho dinero'!

So is being an 'Attention Whore' a bad thing? I guess not, if you actually don't pay them any mind. Even though it's sometimes hard to ignore the attention whore's abnoxious behavior; think how deep down inside - they are insecure people that just want to be heard. Once you are able to ignore them, you will be able to just sit down and laugh. :)

  1. I like your subject. There's 2 things I wanted to comment on.
    1- The AW can as well be a man. I'd say guys grab the attention in ways like wearing those muscle shirts to show how much muscle they have, putting down others in front of everybody to make themselves look better and so on.
    2- I think the AW can be even more dangerous than that. I find you are too easy on the AW in your blog lol. What abt the AW that needs so much attention that she steals someone's boyfriend? Isn't it mostly the end result of an AW that seeks attention? just my opinion

  2. Hmmm well there are many many AW's that are men but this one was based on the females that i've encountered in my life.

    As for the AW's that go to the extreme of stealing someone's boyfriend, well that's just being a real bitch. I wouldn't even consider that person an AW...she's a whore, point blank! LOL
