Maybe she should now officially be referred to as “former Amish.” Or maybe we should call BS?
Either way, this supposedly former Pennsylvania Dutch Country Amish gal is now a contemporary American pin-up. She rapped about her life, former life and desired lifestyle on the Howard Stern Show today, and now everyone wants a piece of Emma the Amish model. Or apparently her underpants, which she signs and sells via mail-order.
I have a few observations that I’d like to share. 1.) Is it really that shocking that an Amish girl can let her hair down from her bonnet? We all saw Witness, didn’t we? 2.) Is it really that shocking that an Amish individual chose to venture beyond the religious stipulations/lifestyle? And 3.) Would this not be the best hook for a few minutes of fame scam?
“Hi, I’m Emma. I used to be Amish. Here’s what it was like to be Amish: (Insert list here).”
Anyone with access to the Internet, or a print out of a Wikipedia page can claim that they were once Amish. How the heck would we know if they were lying or telling the truth? And who in the Amish community is going to come forward and refute the claim? If it’s fame that this chick wants, congrats. She’s either the real deal and destined to enjoy a few public minutes of veiled girl gone skank, or she’s a self-marketing genius. Maybe both.
Either way, I’m not buying what she’s selling.
