What have you become?
A bunch of money-obsessed pigs.
When I joined Stardoll, there was already a massive bias towards Superstars, but now, it's getting ridiculous. Utterly, utterly ridiculous.
Stardoll used to be about Fame, Fashion and Friends, but now, their slogan should be "Stardoll, Fame, Fashion and Who-can-pay-us-the-most-money-so-that-we-can-con-them-into-believing-that-we-are-doing-the-best-for-them". Do you like it? I think it's kinda... Catchy. It certainly sticks in your head. Agreed?
Stardoll have become extremely Elite-ist... And we are partially to blame...
We are obsessed with these little fragments of pixels, we have forgotten the consequences. We have forgotten that no matter how much it costs, we are determined to earn the little star or diamond.
Stardoll are using this to their advantage. They are making Superstar seem more and more appealing, with new hairs, facial expressions and skin tones, not to mention the extra rooms, monthly allowance and they ability to buy what ever we could ever desire.... Of course, when we stop paying, these luxuries all but vanish, and only return when we start paying Stardoll's wages again.
It would also seem that to gain "Elite" status, we need to be a part of the "coveted" Stardoll Royalty Club. It isn't that great. In fact, it's rather dull. All people care about is the fact that they are they highest form of Superstar. Everybody wants to see their portrait in a silver box with a diamond on it. It looks tempting, right? You look powerful and automatically the coolest cucumber around when you have this around your face.
It's not even your face. It's whatever face you think looks the best that might possibly resemble you, slightly.
They make it all so easy.
Go on. You know you want to.
To earn any form of social status on stardoll, you need to have the deepest pockets.
It is times like these that the Lily Allen song "Not Fair" pops into my head.
Excluding the fact that it is about sex, think about this particular segment;
