Who Sends More Press Releases–Russell Simmons or a Porn Star?

by

I generally get inundated with emails from all varieties of show biz types, all regularly hawking their wares, their firstborn, their mood swings, and their genital jewelry, in eternal hopes of a mention.

But two figures rise way above the pack in the sheer volune of promo materials they put out there: Russell Simmons and gay porn icon Michael Lucas, oddly enough. Simmons’ people send a steady stream of items about his politics, his good works, and why he sells clothes at WalMart. If I don’t get an item about Simmons in 10 whole minutes, I start to call the police–but then an email comes in and I settle down into complacence again.

Similarly, Lucas will continually forward his views, his videos that got yanked off YouTube–or the ones that didn’t–and even the most obscure little press mentions. Most poignantly, he recently sent out a CNN ireport on which, if you clicked on photo number four, it showed a shutterd porn video store which had Lucas’s face in the window. Top that, Russell Simmons!

So who would YOU rather hear from–the hiphop mogul or the dick dude?
