Swiss Barbie Bone
Not Just a Trend
She is here to Stay!
When Swiss Barbie Bone was a little girl, she would sing into her decorated pink, purple and green painted brush to Cyndi Lauper’s, “Girls just want to have Fun,” twirling to melodies that were her existence, her meaning. The precocious Swiss Barbie in the making would dance around the table using bread sticks as batons and just as easy create the prettiest tea party dress from a sheet of fabric and finger paint.
It’s no wonder that little girl from Oakland turned into the exhibitionist, multi talented pop artist – songwriter – fashion designer with a flair for theatrics.
“I was always an entertainer,” says Swiss Barbie – who without a doubt created a major buzz for herself virally.
Born and raised in the Bay area to a middle class couple, the young Barbie — who is in her twenties was a well-adjusted kid. She was okay being different than the neighborhood kids, in fact it helped her to recognize her outre’ sense of style as a recording artist, in fashion, in performance and in her music videos.
After high school she continued to study music and performance honing in on her craft.
Her parents, creative souls themselves allowed her the freedom to become who she chose to become and for this, we thank them.
Swiss Barbie Bone started writing music at a very young age and eventually began writing hooks for some of the hottest names in the hip hop game. Before her debut into music she worked behind the scenes managing hip hop artist, working with labels such as Cash Money via promotions as well as casting some of Hollywood’s A-lister’s.
“ I always loved pop, rock and rhythm & blues. When I discovered Cindi Lauper, David Bowie, Aretha Franklin, Grace Jones, Josephine Baker and Marilyn Monroe is when it really came together for me and I realized I could do whatever I wanted to do, there were no limits,” says Swiss. “I look at those artists as icons in art and that is where I live as an artist and that is what I want to accomplish.”
Like any worthy performance artist, Swiss Barbie Bone actively encourages debate and speculation about everything Swiss Barbie Bone.
“If they are talking about me, that’s a good thing..I must be doing something right. This is what I was made for, I will be here for awhile..get use to it,” says SBB.
“It’s Barbie” the single is now available for download.

It seems that more and more, we are turning to Twitter for the latest news and events around the world. Even public safety officials are using Twitter to stay on top of the latest developments. We know that the public, first responders and journalists are using Twitter to learn about trends and breaking news. As of late, there has been a spike in media and pr professionals utilizing twitter to their advantage and EOTM PR is one of them.
“One way to stay on top of breaking news related to your clients is to set up searches on Twitter for general topic areas related to your client’s work. For example, set up a search for “booking actors” and “actors” in addition to your client’s name if their work is in the entertainment field. While it may not catch all of the latest news for booking actors, you may see a few tweets relating to an upcoming casting that you can start to follow”, Carla Barnes, Senior Publicist for EOTM said in an recent interview.
Right now there is no better source for breaking news than Twitter, and EOTM PR professionals are using this to their advantage whenever possible. “You should keep your tools for monitoring Twitter open all day and check it regularly because you never know when the perfect opportunity for your client will come up”, Barnes said.
What has your Publicist tweeted for you lately?
There’s no question that Twitter is the new playground for media relations. It’s a new frontier, that when managed professionally, can serve as a powerful platform and one of the best resources for getting a message out to the masses.

A couple days ago I asked this very question on my facebook page, “Does negative publicity help or hurt your business?”
In my humble opinion, I do believe negative publicity helps a business. Lots of movie stars seems to thrive on negative publicity. Several others have intentionally orchestrated negativity publicity to get into the limelight although many won’t admit it.
But there’s one word of caution here, if your business has a lousy product that no one wants or the business uses unethical means and abuses the customer’s trust then no amount of publicity positive or negative will help.
Why does negative publicity work?
I hate to say this but as a society, people love to see people fight, love to see a super star fall apart whether it’s a 50 cent, Michael Jackson, Lindsay Lohan or Britney Spears. Our society gets its thrills from seeing successful people fall apart. Donald Trump came into the public eye when he was close to a $ 10 billion bankruptcy and in the middle of a dirty divorce. When the Gap unveiled a new logo last year, the reaction was swift, intense and very, very negative. In fact, some people detested the look so much it actually inspired them: somebody set up a Twitter account (@GapLogo) that purported to speak in the unpopular design’s voice, and someone else built a site called CrapLogo.me that made it easy to convert any short text into an imitation of the brand’s new style. The Gap tried to pivot off the negative buzz by asking the online hate mob for advice, in a sort of “crowd sourcing” gimmick, but that didn’t go over well, either. In just four days, the company capitulated and announced that it would not change its logo after all.
Britney Spears stays in the limelight for all the wrong reasons and who can forget the late great Michael Jackson from court cases to financial troubles.
I am not saying they are intentionally orchestrating negative publicity, but the point I am making is negative publicity is giving them media attention and they are getting visibility for themselves. How they use this visibility is an entirely different ball game altogether.
Better that people are talking about your brand than not…just my two cents.

Carla’s take on Public Relations — Ethics
I absolutely love these types of show whereas we can empower minds with food for thought! These shows are dedicated to the elite group of professionals that take the time to hone in on they’re craft. The central purpose of my portion of the show will be to provide an overview of ethics in public relations.
Every Public Relations organization has a code of ethics which the members are expected to abide. The primary objective of this code of ethics is to form guidelines to educate members on how they should conduct themselves in their professional lives. Despite these guidelines, ethics in individual practice is deeply troubling for PR professionals and consistent violation has been a matter of debate for years. Most critics have complained that the ethics ‘have no teeth’ and one cynic as quoted by PR Sourcewatch says, “real ethical behavior is expensive, and that’s where the PR industry’s ethical dilemma
originates. All of the major public relations firms routinely engage in unethical practices and they don’t do it because they are evil people. They do it because their wealthy clients have problems, and cleaning up their image is often easier and cheaper than cleaning up their mess’.
In this section I will also discuss how having a strong sense of ethics and of how to arrive at ethical decisions can enhance the career prospects of public relations professionals. Hope you can make it! Check out my Public Relations and Blog Site for more info on me. EOTM Radio, call in with your question to 718-664-6543

If he was looking for a creative defense on his recent string of probation violations, the ice cream tattoo should definitely put him closer to his supposedly mental disorder angle. The rapper, who was recently released from a psychiatric facility after pleading “mental incompetency”, had an ice cream cone tattooed onto his face earlier this month.
Yes, you heard and seen it right. Gucci Mane is now sporting a cone with three scoops on his right cheek, complete with the word “Brrr” and several red lightning bolts!!
Mane was recently released from the psychiatric facility, it is unclear what his release means for his probation status.
Gucci’s team probably thought they could use mental instability to help get him off, especially considering he has never presented himself as a emcee with any real lyrical depth; and the majority of his rhymes being nonsensical and lacking critical thinking. Nevertheless, I don’t feel most of Gucci’s fans would have ever speculated that he was mentally incompetent, but nice try.
