The vast majority of celebrities and iconic figures in today's Pop Culture are 'Industry Tricks'. Including Singers, Rappers, Actors, TV Personalities, Comedians, and other well known mainstream sources of influence. From Fashion Designers to Professional Athletes.
As opposed to an independent or underground artist, an 'Industry Trick' is compensated by different companies, corporations, and orginizations to maintain a certain image in order to generate commercial revenue and success, even if the 'Trick' themselves doesn't necessarily believe in the image or product(s) they are promoting. As an old adage goes, "Pimps don't MAKE hoes do anything." This is true, they simply offer the opportunity to capitalize on someone's recognizable skills. Give or take a few persuasive measures. In no way is this limited to the world of prostitution.
'Industry Tricks' choose to compensate themselves in exchange for fame and fortune. By signing contracts, they are legally bound to all that is outlined therein. 'Owned', if you will, by the Industry, all the while getting literally and metaphorically 'Fucked'.
Instead of acting out of pure motive, consultants project the 'Tricks' every move in the public eye, concerning target audience, impact on consumer opinion and motivation, and most of all fan base fluctuation.
The 'Industry Trick' is usually easily identifiable, though, at times, can become obscure to the untrained eye.
Most are completely transparent, but not invisible by any means. However, in an attempt to adapt a chameleon-like persona, some 'Tricks' are able to appear genuine, although their motives are truly artificial. This can often be referred to as, 'Talking out of both sides of your mouth.' or simply 'Bitch Made'.
Many 'Industry Tricks' are not renowned due to any admirable qualities or unique and fascinating talent. In fact, their pseudo-illustrious popularity is nothing more than over-blown publicity conveyed with a bit of charisma.
The process of breeding the 'Industry Trick' is widely known as commercialization. Using advanced marketing tactics that exploit primitive human-nature, the media uses the 'Tricks' to influence the masses. By creating the proper atmosphere, they are able to entice the populace, with imagery of wealth, happiness, beauty, sex, etc.
This deceives the people in to believing that if they imitate or emulate the 'Industry Trick' in any way, they too, will be rewarded with the same benefits. This behavior conditioning is called 'Monkey See, Monkey Do'.
WARNING: MOST 'INDUSTRY TRICKS' DON'T BELIEVE IT WILL HAPPEN TO THEM, UNTIL IT DOES! DON'T BE NEXT, FREE YOUR MIND!
