Why did Casey Johnson get so much attention in death? Why was there so much focus on the Brittany Murphy Funeral? The answer is death may be the new sex tape.
It was not too long ago that the celebrity sex tape was the rage, the wicked thing.
After the celebrity deaths of 2009 it appears death may be the new sex tape.
the Brittany Murphy Funeral Showed us that eath May be the new Celebrity sex tape.
Case #1 Casey Johnson Funeral. Simply a Socialite and a Johnson and Johnson heiress. Yet a media frenzy developed around her death We blogged about her funeral at the Your Funeral Guy blogs because people wanted to know.
Case #2 The Brittany Murphy Funeral. Coverage of Brittany Murphy in the media and the blogs was explosive after her death. Before that coverage was ho-hum for the “Clueless” star.
This makes for some strong argument that in the Celebrity Funeral, Death is the New Sex Tape.
Whenever a young, attractive person dies in mysterious ways, it grabs extra attention … Additionally, death tends to enlarge the characteristics that people remember — and I think there’s a good bit of sordid curiosity here, in that Tila Tequila has been such an outrageous figure that there’s a real hunger to see how her reactions will play out. Finally, these things tend to grow exponentially, as the more media coverage they receive, the more we believe we should be paying attention, and the more likely we are to revise history and remember her as perhaps being more famous than she was.

The grim reaper may have got Billy Mays but he's back with a costune contest for Halloween
As most folks know Billy Mays died this past summer. The advertising wizard has passed on. His legacy will continue this Halloween. There is a costume contest sponsored by his son Billy Mays III. The son has shown some creativity on keeping his memory as a celebrity alive. First the website(wheresbillymays.com), then the costume contest.
Halloween is approaching rapidly and it goes without saying that “deceased celebrities” (and balloon boy) will most likely be a huge theme at every gathering.
There will no doubt be a multitude of people dressed as Billy Mays (or zombie Billy Mays).. it is one of the easiest costumes of all time to put together. (Beard, blue button-down, khakis, prop product, etc..)
So, I’ve decided to hold a little contest for best costume.
1. Simply send a photo of your costume to email@example.com along with your contact info (email and/or twitter will do)
2. Be tasteful. (Zombies ARE permitted)
3. Project your voice.
4. Have fun.
There are many prizes for the winner including a tub full of oxy clean. The memorial website has a place for tributes and of Course Billy Mays sightings. Yes there are also Billy May’s videos.
