An Internet celebrity is an unemployed person worshipped by 12 year old kids who is widely known among the members of an e-subculture or clique. The term itself is a misnomer because people who use the internet are not popular IRL. Most Internet celebrities have more friends on their LiveJournal friends list than anyone else, and it is to these vaunted heights of e-fame that all self-respecting attention or comment whores aspire.
Internet celebrities think that they are funny, witty and e-popular, but in truth most people just want to sleep with them, which is especially the case with e-celebrity Chris-chan. Some Internet celebrities mistake themselves for actual celebrities, but it is important to remember that even such individuals as Cory Doctorow are only known within a very small circle of Internets-savvy people. Get over yourselves. Kibo was one of the first Internet celebrities.
So pretty much, internet celebrities are basement dwelling losers who, IRL, never have and never will do anything real with their lives.
If you are too retarded to become famous in real life, your only alternative is to be an attention whore engaging in shameless self promotion until you achieve the fine heights of e-fame, a celebrity in the electronic alternative reality that is teh internets.
Marks of e-fame include having more people on your LiveJournal Friendslist than anyone else, having your posts featured on LJ Drama, and of course having your own entry on Encyclopedia Dramatica. Also, crying over Britney is highly recommended. Failing even that, championing the cause of the Furluminati is another way to raise your e-fame to OVER 9000.
How to Become an Internet Celebrity
- Make a video BAAAWWWWW-ing about your favorite IRL celebrity.
- Pretend to be an intellectual by posting controversial videos on YouTube.
- Find a young child with a speech impediment
- Draw popular anime characters having animal buttsecks
- Do it for the lulz
How to Maintain E-Fame: Doing it Wrong
Because there are so many naughties and so much lulz-worthy shit clogging up the internets like cholesterol surging through an American's arteries, it's hard to maintain the open-mindedness and "uniqueness" that made them celebrities in the first place:
- Declare war on Encyclopedia Dramatica.
- File a lawlsuit against all the haters.
- Leave the internet forever . . . again and again and again and again.
- Make half a dozen different accounts. Note: these aren't sockpuppets. Sockpuppets are made so no one knows who you are. These accounts are made to escape the haters but they cannot resist the e-fame for long).
- Post all your embarassing nudes to an LJ group then get butthurt when you end up on ED.
How to Maintain E-Fame: FUCKING WIN

Internet Celebrities - MYSPACE EDITION
A MySpace Celebrity is anyone who is well-known on MySpace. Normally but not always, these people have done something amazing to warrant their e-fame. Many are friendwhores, and the rest are just regular whores.
- Tom Anderson. This bisexual pedophile is on every 16-year-old girl's friendlist, and is often known to fap on their pics. Tom has millions of friends. Known to try to coerce Azns for sex, Anderson has gotten quite a reputation as a player, and is using his MySpace fame to get even moar sex. Most people are too stupid to understand that Tom is just a publicity figure for MySpace who actually does nothing for the site.
- Tila Tequila. This azn whore has the 2nd-most friends of anybody on MySpace. However, she only got these friends by showing pink and fucking half the internets. Her TV show failed it, as did her attempt at making music. The majority of her interwebs time is spent being a camwhore for her adoring fans.
- Jeffree Star. A faggot tranny who claims it has no gender, Star is the most popular gay figure on MySpace. Sometimes but not always wapanese, Star's hobbies include being a camwhore and engaging in buttsecks with his friends. Some argue that Star's penis has been removed.
- Chris Crocker. Another faggot tranny, but this one's even moar batshit insane. After saying that 9/11 was insignificant compared to the agony Britney Spears was going through and openly admitting to gay incest, Crocker's 15 minutes of fame seemed to be coming to an end. However, he still has over 9000 MySpace friends and continues to rant and whine about breeders, the word black person, and all sorts of faggotry. Chris Crocker is a prime example of someone whose real gender is difficult to discern. Good luck trying.
- atheist whore who listens to shitty pop-metal and claims she's hardcore. The only reason she's a MySpace celebrity is because she's fucking MySpace's head programmer. With her newfound e-fame, Sanaz has decided to fail it through shameless self promotion, i.e. "BUY MY POSTERS!!!!1111111" If you are in a shitty band and want to become a rockstar, contact Sanaz. . An
- Gaygod, aka Matthew Lush. A vegan emo faggot camwhore who spends all his time engaging in buttsecks for the sake of shameless self promotion. Though very poor, Gaygod is able to stay alive through the support of the fag enablers on MySpace. Frequently trolled, Gaygod knows his views are not always going to be popular. However, he continues polluting the internets with his faggotry.
- azn who was the second person to sign up on MySpace. That is the only reason anybody gives a flying fuck about him. . An
- Rational Response Squad. These butthurt atheists are on a mission to prove there is no God. However, since they are all a bunch of whores with Asperger's syndrome, they have only gotten a small degree of internets fame by acting all hardcore about their beliefs. Comprised of a few main members, the Rational Response Squad is trying to unite all internet atheists. However, all they've really done is unite the ENTIRE FUCKING WORLD in mocking them.
- PETA, AKA the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. Comprised of angsty emo faggots, these vegans care moar about animal welfare than humanity. However, none of them are actually vegan because they all eat cock and drink cum. Every shitty emo band in existence supports these batshit insane fucktards. However, most will become an heroes.
- scene model and fashion designer who is a friend of Jeffree Star. Known to fuck every shemale she can get her hands on, Audrey is not only asking for it, she is looking for it as well. Her claim to e-fame is having EXTREMELY WILD AND FUCKING CRAZYSHIT HAIR and having connections with most other MySpace celebrities. . A
- convicted felon whose real name is Loren Williams. He runs a porn site and a few other NSFW sites. In his spare time, he serves as a minor internet humanitarian. However, he often insults MySpace, and that has resulted in his profile getting baleeted multiple times. He was e-dating Jude's Army until he found out that Jude's Army was a fraud. He has now accepted the fact that he will be dying alone. , a
- Mexican singer who endured domestic violence. Now butthurt, she preaches and speaks out against all forms of abuse. A known supporter of PETA, some argue that Loony is into bestiality or may be a closet furry. , a
- Don Henrie. Believes he is a vampire. He actually drinks blood and sleeps in a coffin. He has a budding modeling career and is a hit with gothy 16 year old girls and basement dwellers alike.
- myspace and buzznet,whereas lies the sad truth of her "Oh so drastic and stressful photoshoot" days.She is the stereotipical self absorbed moody pre-menstrual 14 year old teenager,who thinks that only because she is a pro ana model will reach fame.She is way too good at selfpromotion. , Actually believes she has reached fame on
- Mission: MySpace. The epitome of internet humanitarianism. This faggot lurks on MySpace to murder profiles of anyone he does not liek. He had connections to Jude's Army and the related drama, but now spends his time hunting face-painters, pedophiles, trolls, and other sorts of sick fucks. He fails it.
- porn star who claimed to be the internet's girlfriend. Even after almost getting baleeted, she continues her whorish ways. . A
- Cody Kardashian. The attention whoring brother of Kim Kardashian.
Miss Kristin Nicole'. 21 year old straight edge (hence the discovery of Photoshopped pictures of her sucking her boyfriend's dick) scene drama queen with an entry-level DSLR camera and Photoshop who runs a photography "business." She is most notable for posting bulletins every 15 minutes along the lines of "My boyfriend's band is practicing and I am watching Lifetime, I'm deleting my profile, I'm pregnant, comment me cute kids" and also making pointless YouTube videos that nobody watches about her past eating disorders which caused her "disease" (which is really Crohn's), her obsession with Twilight, "advise" (sic) regarding breakups and how she dyes her hair every week. If you want to waste minutes of your life, her videos can be found
- whore turned MySpace-lover. Famous for being Chris Crocker's
and for looking like a cow. Her pictures are often lulz-worthy as she obviously Photoshops her legs rather than man the harpoons.. YouTube
- internet's mostfamous photographer and claims to own Famous-Partcher. . A photographer who thinks he is the
- Doe Deere. A typical narcissistic whore who does anything for attention. She once recorded some horrible music and posted it on myspace, hoping to become famous. Because having shit pumped through your ears with a fire hose is more pleasant than listening to her music, Doe Deere's career as a musician never took off. Nowadays, she resorts to scamming 16 year old girls by selling shitty makeup.
The F List
- You. Admit it... you have one.
There are mysterious figures on the Internet who are famous for their efforts to make the internets a better place. These people are not-to-be-known gentlemen who rip, encode, compress, seed, draw cool reaction pics, edit TOW gratuitously, write good articles about vintage games, dump ROMs, etc etc. Despite being famous, they aren't attention whores hence not appreciated by people. An example of this is 18.104.22.168.
