James Deen vs Sunny Leone? You decide ….

I noticed that James Deen was named the XBIZ Crossover Star of the Year.  I like him.  He’s a cute guy who seems to have a great personality.  That goes a long way with me.  But I’m really not so sure he deserved to win the crossover star of the year award.  I wonder how that is even possible.

What did James Deen really do besides get in a low budget movie with Lindsey Lohan which then landed him a handful of times on TMZ?  Is there something I am perhaps missing?

No offense to James Deen, I mean seriously I love him to death, but that’s really nothing more than someone like say Amia Miley has accomplished as the girlfriend of Jersey Shore star Johnny The Unit.  Whom might I mention recently ranked in the top 5 celebrity bitch fights of 2012, according to the new E! show scandalous, “The Unit versus Snooki”.  Amia Miley is not only featured on TMZ through her relationship with the Jersey Shore star and has been in a handful of mainstream music videos, but lets not forget the Kim Kardashian twitter ass scandal which was covered by every mainstream media outlet for days.  Having Kayne West tweet a picture of your ass is great, but having every major media outlet cover the story, is even more impressive.

Moving on, all of this of course is nothing in comparison to Sunny Leone‘s accomplishments this year.

311 million people live in the United States.  So to get cast in a minor role in a minor, low budget movie with Lyndsey Lohan that at best is targeted to a market of 311 million people versus someone who was cast on a reality TV show, featured heavily in media, cover of FHM India magazine, cast to star, in a major motion picture targeted to a potential market of the 1 billion 241 million plus million people that live in India and let’s not forget, she also got a deal to be in a bunch of commercials for a wireless carrier in India.  So she’s seen often in commercials.  Can any other porn star in the US say that?

In addition the the movie she just had released, she also just got cast in another movie in India.  A sequel to a crossover horror movie was one of the most talked about sleeper hits of 2011.

Now before you say well all she is doing is in India.  Not the US.  How is that really a relevant argument?  She crossed over to mainstream success.  Her crossover appeal landed her on the cover of several major mainstream magazines including FHM.  Can you name any other porn stars who can say the same?  But that’s not all.   It was recently revealed that porn star Sunny Leone has been crowned as India’s most googled celebrity, beating Bollywood divas Katrina Kaif, Kareena Kapoor and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan.

Have you ever seen Aishwarya Rai Bachchan?  She is often called one of the most beautiful women in the entire world and Sunny Leone surpassed her.  Can any other porn star in the entire history of our industry lay claim to anything even close to that?
