There are a lot of different celebrities in Hollywood but they can generally be divided into two categories. There are the celebrities that became famous because they’re good at what they do and they work hard. Then there are the celebrities that are famous for no good reason, whatsoever. These are the celebrities who have seemed to grab a hold of fame and just won’t let go. They are the celebrities that are famous for sex tapes, because they have rich parents, or because they’re always pictured with other famous people. No matter what their reason for being in the public eye, these celebrities seem to have a death grip on their version of fame and fortune. So here is a list of celebrities that continue to be famous for no apparent reason.
