It seems that reitred pornchick Bree Olson made a youtube video where she cried, without any tears mind you, about how bad her life is because of her porn past and how she isn’t getting any mainstream work, and how her past is following her but she gets no residuals…blah blah blah The video got a lot of mainstream attention from TheDailyDot to Fox news.

Under normal circumstances I wouldn’t denigrate a porn chick over this, lets face it on many of her points she is spot on. BUT Bree went to GREAT lengths to brand herself the way she did. What she leaves out is that she actively branded herself as a total slut. Bree subscribed to the idea that anything she did no matter how outrageous, like fucking cab drivers in exchange for a ride, made for a good story to millions of Howard Stern’s radio listeners….You reap what you sow.
There are lots of girls, even popular ones who have put porn behind them and gone on to successful careers, but they didn’t brag about having sex with homeless people to millions of listeners.
Bree was successful at branding herself the way she wanted to and now she is complaining because her branding was effective…Sorry but that rings pretty hollow to me. Are performers treated poorly, yes….should they get royalties…yes…Is the entry bar too low, yes. Did Bree get exactly what she wanted…yes…..Kinda late to be whining about it….It is ALL of your own doing.
And as a side note her mainstream career may be stalled because she isn’t a very good actress, I thought that in chick 101 you learn to always cry real tears…big crocodile ones, Bree needs some practice. (Note my bad she did shed some small ones…I stand corrected on that point)
Maybe I am being a bit harsh here but I think it is high time that the Millennials learn that sometimes…it is their own fault…
