The CNN.com article, “2010 Obsessions: New Scandals, Old Faces,” was written by Lisa Respers France. Ms. France delved into some of 2010’s most notable celebrity scandals involving Mel Gibson, Charlie Sheen, Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan and others. Personal branding expert, Nick Nanton, Esq., was asked how these events could negatively impact a celebrity’s brand. Below is an excerpt from the article:
Even the old adage that “all publicity is good publicity,” can wear thin if a star keeps repeating the same bad behavior, said celebrity attorney and branding expert Nick Nanton.
Adoring fans are only willing to forgive so much, Nanton said.
“Everyone for the most part is allowed to make a mistake,” he said. “Like they say, fool me once shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me. Once the public starts to feel like they are being fooled or duped, that’s when a star is going to have problems with their brand.”
“Becoming a celebrity doesn’t change who you are, it just puts whoever you are on steroids,” said Nanton.
