Lolo Jones: "If I Wanted Fame, I Would Totally Do A Sextape"


A place for the discussion of all things not closely related to the sport and its competitive side. (as always, locked for the duration of major international championship)

Lolo Jones: "If I Wanted Fame, I Would Totally Do A Sextape"

Sooo, Lolo is at it again. I commended her a few weeks ago for standing up against the media, but she really isn't helping her cause. She responded to what Kellie Wells & Dawn Harper said about her with:


“Yeah, that was kind of a shocker. I didn’t see that one coming at all. I kind of understand their frustration I guess because they feel like they don’t have media or photo shoots or any of that off the track stuff that they might want. But from my end of it if I had a medal, that’s all I would need.”


But, she continued on:

“I’m not running track to be the most famous person. If I wanted to do that I would totally do a Kim Kardashian or Snookie. I’d do a sex tape or something like that if I wanted fame."

This might be just as effective! I googled "kim kardashian sex tape" and ended up at a Lolo Jones article!

They should give Lolo a gold medal for viral marketing.

Who wants to see a sex tape with a "so called virgin". Lolo is still trying to remain relevant especially since she didnt get a medal. How much lower can you go Lolo. :evil:

Boring

What's the expression? Keeping up with the Jones's? You've got to know what the Jones's are doing in order to keep up with them. Lolo's doing her part. She's not the first Jones media magnet. For better or worse, her predecessor discovered a way to stay fresh and relevant off the track, too.

I guess you have a point. Folks want to see tapes of women who already know all the tricks, not women who still have to learn them.

You should blame the media who hangs on her every word, reports her every tweet and is constantly looking for excuses to put her on TV.

If there's any "blame" here it's the idiots who take the time to read things about her and then complain because she's boring. If she turns you off, simply ignore such pieces.

Your mom isn't saying, "no desert until you read today's Lolo story" is she?

I disagree. At this point, Lolo is getting paid regardless.

I'm a Lolo fan who lives in Baton Rouge, but the next tweet by her that I read will be the first. I simply don't have time to keep up with her celebrity and all the tabloid stories about her. What's amazing is that I know less about her non-track related activities than the folks on this board who hate her.

Again, Lolo is looking out for herself and don't be surprised if sometime down the road, she has a reality "dating a virgin" show, book deal, etc. Lolo ain't no fool and she knows exactly what she is doing. She knew exactly what the reaction would be when she announced she was a virgin.



Her future is not on the track.

This comes under the banner of "SEX SELLS"!!
I was a college journalism major, and one of my classes was in advertising.
Just about EVERY ad has some sexual image in it....either overt or covert.

Then you have today's so called "LameStream Media", which looks for the dirty, the sexy, the controversial......in EVERYTHING!!

So Lolo, whom I find completely INNOCENT in this, says that if she wanted more fame, she'd do a sex tape, like the Kardashians have done!!

She was GIVING AN EXAMPLE of something that would make her even MORE famous than she is.
This was not even the most important part of her reply.
The most important part was that winning a medal at the Olympics is what she WANTS, not fame through making a sex tape!!

So if you want to blame anyone, or ridicule anyone, or make nasty remarks against someone, make them against the REAL culprit.......the MEDIA!!!

Lolo is Lolo, and God bless her for it!!!

She has done no wrong!!!

Actually, I don't think she did. She should have known based on how polarizing Tim Tebow is, but I think she was genuinely blindsided, as her interview with Lewis Johnson after her 1st-round Olympic heat indicated. She wasn't acting, she really did have steam coming out of her ears.

Sorry about that. You are right. But we would be a lot better off if no one used the hater term anymore. If you want to hate Stalin, I understand, but about a sport figure it sounds a bit silly.

Two things really surprise me as a read this thread.
First, it is amazing Lolo's straightforward and probably uncalculated comments can spur so much polarizing commentary.
Second, it is stunning to learn arronk -- king of multiple exclamation points, extra-long elipses and all-caps for emphasis -- was a journalism major......!!!!!
I'm having fun. FWIW, arronk, I enjoy your contributions to this board.

The girl has an agent and contracts from diverse apparel and shoe companies . If anyone thinks that she is saying these things because she is a naive fool then you are the most naive person alive. She is executing a marketing strategy. It is her job and she is doing it well.

The truth is that she is incredibly more marketable than all but a select few gold medal winners. She is immensely beautiful and has a multiracial appeal that serves like viagra to Madison avenue executives. Ask them to choose between a F100m medalist or an F400/800m medalist and it is a no brainer, they go with Lolo. The notion that a sex tape would give her fame is false and she and her agents know that, the claim is to highlight that there is no sextape and thereby highlights the fact that she is as pure and clean as the wind driven snow ! ... the sex tape will have value 10 years from now.

The Lolo haters continue to expose only themselves.

So her entire career is defined by 1 race. And because she finished 4th to the 3 predicted medalists who have dominated almost every race in 2012 she is talent-less?

Most of us would say she is 100X prettier than one of them and 10X prettier than the other. But why go to such efforts to expose yourself as a jealous person. Jealousy is a motive we generally try to mute.

She can't be talented on the track and win championships like Fraser, Bolt and Blake and thus, she basically has to sell her soul to the devil to remain relevant. How shallow, how low.

Nobody on this board tried to compare her to Bolt, rather, it was you who compared her to Hilton and Kardashian and called her talentless.

C'mon guys (and girls).. lay off Lolo..I think most people have decided either to like or dislike her and no amount of arguing/dissing/praising is going to change anyone's mind.
She has publicly stated that she engaged professional PR after Beijing, which was a logical thing to do. Certainly, she has a self-promotional agenda (who doesn't?) but that does not detract from her honest, spontaneous, natural and guiless interviews.
She is quite an attractive young woman but that is no reason to despise or envy her success.
