What’s The Deal With Struggling Tech Companies And Celebrities? [Opinion]

Alicia Keys thinks Blackberry is totally "fly."

Alicia Keys thinks BlackBerry is totally “fly.”

Despite the fact that she uses an iPhone, Alicia Keys joined BlackBerry’s CEO onstage today to announce her new position at the company as “Global Creative Director.” After giving a creepy analogy about her and BlackBerry “exclusively dating,” Keys skirted a question about what phone she used before her BlackBerry. That’s probably because she was a self-proclaimed “iPhone junky.”

The idea of a famous artist/non-technology expert like Alicia Keys getting in bed with BlackBerry may seem weird, but this isn’t something new. For years struggling tech companies have been using faux-celebrity partnerships and endorsements as a desperate plea for attention.

iCelebrity: Vanessa Hudgen’s Other Arm Candy

iCelebrity: Vanessa Hudgen’s Other Arm Candy

“High School Musical” star Vanessa Hudgens is almost never without an iPhone. She hides behind it and prefers to consult it rather than notice that she’s with beau-star Zac Efron in Paris.

Still, even she has to put it down every once in awhile. Here Hudgens catches a limo toting a Mac laptop, dangerously sans case.

iCelebrity: Don’t Mess With Mariah Carey

iCelebrity: Don’t Mess With Mariah Carey

There were some good cameos in Adam Sandler’s guffaw-fest “You Don’t Mess With The Zohan,” like Charlotte Rae, (Mrs. Garrett in “Facts of Life”) as a superannuated, sexed-up hair salon client, but Mariah came through with a spot-on Mac endorsement.

Mariah plays herself in the movie. While she’s in her dressing room, Zohan comes in to fight nemesis Phantom there. The fight is interrupted when Zohan gets a phone call. The dialogue detours into product placement territory, starting with the make of his phone, then this gem, about two-thirds through the scene

Mariah: “I can never figure that Bluetooth shit out though.”

Zohan: “Mariah, it’s very simple you stick it to your PowerBook. Go ahead, Phantom will tell you.”

Phantom: “Mac or PC?”

Mariah’s assistants, in unison: “Mac.”

Spotted a Mac in a movie or magazine? Let me know.

Victoria’s Secret models Gisele Bundchen and Alessandra Ambrosio in between takes on an ad shoot busy with Mac laptops.

Nice to know that Brazilian beauty Bundchen — aka “I’m a Mac Home Movie” — hasn’t fallen into the Charlize Theron trap.

Funny how big those lap tops look poised on those tiny, model laps.

Seen an iCelebrity? Let me know.

iCelebrity: Hillary Duff Gets a Grip

Hillary Duff is often papped with her iPhone 3G. This time, we’re pleased to note that Duff, who used to play clumsy but lovable Lizzie McGuire, appears to have a firm grip on it. And that no permanent damage was caused when she let the phone take a tumble.

iCelebrity: Halle Berry

iCelebrity: Halle Berry

The Oscar-winning actress looks great, even with no makeup, unmatched sweats and tangled up in the cord of her iPod touch.
Got to wonder about that book she’s lugging titled “Diagnosis and Treatment for Multiple Personality Disorder.” Maybe it’s for new part, or maybe for juggling the life of a star-mom-perfume maker….

Next time she might try going for cover under an iPhone.
