Montana Fishburne, the 19-year-old daughter of actor Laurence Fishburne, is set to release her debut sex tape on August 18th. But Montana isn’t pretending that this tape was leaked without her knowledge or permission. Instead, the budding actress argues that she believes the sex tape is one of the best ways to quickly rise to fame for today’s young female stars.
As Mary Elizabeth Williams at Salon puts it:
The younger Fishburne’s foray into adult entertainment might be viewed as a depressing confirmation of what many of us have long suspected – that some of those shocking sex tapes those D-list celebrities didn’t want you to see are in fact carefully contrived publicity stunts.
Fishburne makes no such claim. Instead, she readily cites Kim Kardashian as a major inspiration, saying:
I’ve watched how successful Kim Kardashian became and I think a lot of it was due to the release of her sex tape by Vivid. I’m hoping the same magic will work for me. I’m impatient about getting well-known and having more opportunities and this seemed like a great way to get started on it.”
