New Rule: Celebrity Must Be Occasionally Refreshed or Taken Away

Amid all the hoopla about Supermodel Naomi Campbell throwing a cell phone at her assistant, one thing jumps out at me:

"Supermodel" Naomi Campbell???

When's the last time she supermodeled something?

Isn't there a statute of limitations on celebrity? Shouldn't you have to do something famous-making every now and then to stay famous?

Saying "Supermodel Naomi Campbell" or "Singer Boy George" or "Actress Elizabeth Taylor" is like saying "College Student Larry King" or "Coke-Sniffing Drunk George W. Bush." At some point, you have to update the resume, don't you?
