It’s becoming the road to fame and forune for Christine Dolce, a.k.a Forbidden, a 23-year-old cosmetician who’s now cashing in on her Mysapce fan base of nearly 900,000 "friends".
Her online celebrity led to spokesmodel gigs for Axe body spray and Zippo lighters.
Then she inadvertently started a clothing line by posting a picture of herself in ripped-up jeans; after fielding thousands of requests, she launched Destroyed Denim, which sells mutilated jeans for $100 a pop.
Next up: a newly launched website selling Forbidden posters, shirts, and gear.
"You watch," says her manager Keith Ruby. "Within months she’ll be a seven-figure brand".
