You can do it on social media, but the question is: Has the person buying the fame paid his/her dues? You know, you gotta pay your dues to sing the blues! But I don’t really know how to pay dues, and it seems like those saying that are just haters anyway!
Well, there could actually be untalented idiots who have bought fame. I can’t think of any offhand. Know any?
But people aren’t dumb though! Even with a large bankroll, you simply can’t sell crap! In other words, something dumb isn’t going to make it, aside from some notable crappy songs that became famous (but that might be subjective).
People might follow something without much thought into what they’re following. However, to double-check this, you should check to see if boosted posts are getting positive reactions.
