The Magic Of Pamela Lee Anderson.
Because to some degree I’m still an emotionally immature male, from time to time I post pictures of women on the blog. (Find them all by clicking the link in the right hand navigation called “women” or do so right here:)
The blog itself doesn’t generate a lot of traffic, but it’s relatively unsurprising that aside from a chick playing the theme from Star Wars on a trumpet, or an occasional sports post that others pick up on, the majority of the traffic seems to go these pages with pictures of hotties.
What surprises me about this is which of these lasses gets the vast, VAST majority of hits.
Is it girl of the moment Megan Fox, star of Transformers and popping up on websites all over the place?
Is it Mandy Moore, the under-rated but white-hot actress/singer?
How about Friday Night Lights star Minka Kelly?
Jessica Alba? Emmanuelle Chriqui? Hilary Duff? Evangeline Lily? Miss Lindsay Lohan?
Nope on all counts.
It’s Pamela Anderson. That’s right, 40-year old Pam Anderson drives a vast amount of traffic to the site. And while I obviously get it – the pictures of her aren’t 40 years old, though she still looks great – it’s not just the fact that she poses so provocatively, or that she’s been on the cover of Playboy 11 separate times.
Ms. Anderson has something that really hasn’t been taken over by anyone who is a bit more youthful – that is, someone who fully embraces the cheesecake factor, the pin-up girl mentality…without degrading into soft core porn, etc. Sure, you have your Katie Price’s, but really almost no one stateside really knows who she is. Somehow we embrace Pam in a way no one else has been able to achieve – she’s trashy, but not crude. She’s cartoonish – so she jumps out and stars in a cartoon about herself called Stripperella. And people everywhere are still scouring the internet for pictures of her, which is STUNNING considering what’s out there on the web these days.
I’m not sure of the real reason – she keeps herself in the public eye, and even when it’s for the myriad of bad, stupid marriages, no one seems to ever talk about her with the hostility reserved for Britney Spears, Lindsay Lohan or even the deceased Anna Nicole Smith (who would have seemed to be a sister-in-arms, though one with more obvious problems). It’s cliché to say that Ms. Anderson is probably a lot smarter than she seems – but she certainly keeps herself relevant, in a way that no one else has been able to replicate.
Plus, she drives traffic to my blog. So, kudos, Pam. Way to go.
