Was the Sasha Grey scandal really just a publicity stunt?

I got an email today but I want to be clear, I don’t know if it is true.  So let’s consider this an unfounded rumor.

Hope you don’t believe all the bullshit you are reading about Sasha Grey. It was all a well crafted, very planned out stunt to get her in the news.

The email rambles on a bit and then goes on to say that since she quite making movies a few years ago to pursue more artistic endeavors, the mainstream world hasn’t been beating a path to her door as she had once thought they might.  This anonymous insider claims that life after porn for Sasha wasn’t quite as wonderful as she thought it was going to be.

But he also says this recent publicity stunt wasn’t her idea however she did go along with it. Someone in her camp came up with a seemingly innocent way to get her name in the news again and that was by reading to children. They knew it would be a controversy and this source even goes on to claim it was one of her inner circle that first placed a call to the school to complain and then right after to the LA Times to say parents were calling the school in outrage. When the LA Times didn’t act fast enough they turned to other media outlets like TMZ.

I don’t know if anything is anonymous source says is true but if it is, it worked. Sasha Grey reading to children is all everyone was talking about yesterday. And can you really blame her for wanting to be more famous?  It’s not like other people haven’t done similar things in the past like faked leaked sex tapes or calling in tips to the paparazzi that they’ll be at certain locations.

Really pulling a publicity stunt like this makes her more mainstream just by having done it in the first place.  So kudos to her.

Go get your famous on Sasha!  We support ya girl!
