Founded in 2016, OnlyFans has quickly become the presiding go-to platform for NSFW content. For years, sex workers have been sharing adult content (ranging from racy images to porn) on the platform, locked behind a paywall which subscribers pay a monthly fee to gain access to. The most recent figures indicate that OnlyFans has upwards of 450,000 creators and 30 million users as a whole, with Instagram influencers and celebrities being among the latest to turn to the platform to secure a bag.
One of the appealing aspects of OnlyFans is that there isn’t necessarily a correlation between the level of explicitness of one’s content, and the amount of revenue they bring in. In fact, many of the platform’s top creators share nothing more risqué than mere partial nudes and suggestive photos, as has been the case with many of OnlyFans’ celebrity joinees. Celebrities’ migration to OnlyFans hasn’t come without controversy, though, with some celebrities not delivering on the promised raunchiness of their content (Bella Thorne was at the center of such a controversy), thus undermining the integrity and trust the platform’s sex workers have spent years building. Nevertheless, below is a list of some of the noteworthy names in the realm of hip-hop, that have cropped up as OnlyFans creators in recent months.
Let us know what you make of the platform– are you a subscriber?
Tyga caused quite a stir on social media at the start of October when a photo of his privates was leaked, an incident he seemingly paid no mind to other than to tweet a link to his OnlyFans. Some were quick to accuse Tyga of having leaked his own nude to promote his OnlyFans, but it’s safe to say that whether the leak was by design or not, it certainly gained the rapper-turned-sex-worker (?) a slew of new subscribers.
Atlanta-based rapper and Instagram influencer, Rubi Rose, made headlines in July when she made over $100,000 in two days off of her OnlyFans. The kicker? She only used photos already posted to her Instagram, essentially bamboozling thousands of horny men everywhere.
Cardi B joined the private-content platform in August to offer paying fans in-depth insight into her life. Yup, that’s right. No X-rated content here. Unfortunately the rapper did accidentally post a topless photo to her Instagram last Tuesday, after her alcohol-filled, three-day birthday bash. Nonetheless, she’s reportedly making a cool $8 million per month off her OnlyFans account, so we’re sure she’s just wiping any tears away with a $100 bill.
Bringing in roughly $15 million per month, Blac Chyna is one of OnlyFans’ top earners. With subscriptions to her content costing $50 per month, it seems Blac Chyna has ditched reality TV in favor of another steady income stream.
Woods kicked off her Jordan Year by joining OnlyFans earlier this month, charging $20 for a subscription. Having dealt with body-shaming all her life, Woods says she is reclaiming her power, using her OF account to post “iconic” photos that she wouldn’t post on Instagram.
Amber Rose took to OF in September, posting a cheeky preview of her content on Instagram to announce her account. As far as Amber’s content goes, it’s safe to see you will see some skin– the ex of Kanye and Wiz has already shared strategically-covered nude photos to help promote the account.
Former Disney star Bella Thorne got herself embroiled in controversy when she joined OnlyFans in August, selling photos that were not as revealing as she led customers to believe. The actress made a whopping $1 million on her first day as a result of her misleading claims, leading many customers to demand refunds. Thorne has since apologized for the incident, but OnlyFans implemented policies, such as a $200 tip cap, to prevent such an incident from repeating itself. This came to the dismay of other creators who don’t mislead their customers, but will nonetheless feel the brunt of Thorne’s actions moving forward.
Safaree Samuels & Erica Mena
Nicki Minaj’s ex, Safaree Samuels, and his wife Erica Mena both joined OnlyFans individually, but the Love & Hip Hop couple also post joint content for their fans, at times.
Boosie Badazz’s OnlyFans is so raunchy its prompted the 37-year-old rapper to adopt a new nickname— Boo Hefner. At $29.99 a month, subscribers can get an all-access pass to Boosie’s sexual exploits.
Following the lead of her Love & Hip Hop co-stars Safaree Samuels and Erica Mena, Juelz Santana’s wife launched her OnlyFans account earlier this month. While it’s unclear whether Santana himself will be partaking, he did take to Instagram to promote her account to his followers, giving it his stamp of approval.
People were extremely concerned when actress Masika Kalysha posted a video of herself crying and covered in bruises to Instagram in August, looking around frantically as she begged viewers to subscribe and tip her OnlyFans, seemingly having been kidnapped. Kalysha later announced she had feigned the kidnapping in an attempt to raise awareness about sex trafficking, and also promote her OnlyFans in the process. Fans weren’t too pleased Kalysha’s tone-deaf publicity stunt, and Kalysha apologized for her insensitivity but maintained that shock factor was “necessary” in shedding light on serious issues.
Call him Swae Lee, Lee Swae, Man of The People— all are correct. Lee allows his fans to follow his OnlyFans free of charge, tweeting in July “I fuck with OnlyFans cuz it’s only for the fans.” As it stands, the rapper only has one post, a promo for his new song, “Reality Check,” seemingly indicating solo Swae might be stepping back on the scene.
One of the earlier celebrities to join OnlyFans, Casanova joined in April and charges a $50 monthly subscription fee. Much to fans’ dismay, Casanova did not actually post anything explicit to his page, but still managed to land a spot on the platform’s Top 10 Highest-Earning Celebrities list.
Another Love & Hip Hop star trying to secure an OnlyFans check, Anderson started her account in May and charges a $12 monthly subscription fee. Anderson announced her account by uploading a video of herself twerking in a pool on Instagram, saying she was “Finna act a fool” on the platform.
Who Invented Stickers, and When Did it Happen?
The invention of stickers is a fascinating story of innovation and evolution, weaving through various periods of history. While the sticker, as we know it today, emerged in the 20th century, its roots can be traced much further back. This article explores the journey of stickers from their ancient origins to the creation of the modern adhesive sticker by R. Stanton Avery in 1935.
Early Beginnings: Ancient Times to 19th Century
Historians suggest that the concept of stickers may have originated in ancient times. The ancient Egyptians, for instance, used papyrus for various purposes, which could have included something akin to the modern sticker. However, this early form would have been significantly different from what we recognize today.
The next significant milestone in the history of stickers came in 1839 with Sir Rowland Hill. Hill, better known for inventing the postage stamp, developed an adhesive paper. This invention laid the groundwork for the future development of stickers, as it introduced the idea of a self-adhesive paper.
The Birth of the Modern Sticker: R. Stanton Avery
The real breakthrough came in 1935, with the invention of the modern sticker by R. Stanton Avery. Born in Oklahoma in 1907, Avery moved to Los Angeles in the late 1920s. His early career was marked by a series of odd jobs, but it was his entrepreneurial spirit and keen interest in printing technology that paved the way for his groundbreaking invention.
Avery’s sticker was not just a label but a self-adhesive piece that could be mass-produced. He created the first self-adhesive label in a time when labels still required moistening to stick. This marked a significant innovation for personalized stickers. This was the beginning of product packaging and labeling as we know it.
The technical aspects of Avery’s invention are noteworthy. He designed a die-cut labeling machine using rudimentary parts — a washing machine motor, components from a sewing machine, and a saber saw. This makeshift machine could produce self-adhesive labels in various shapes and sizes, which was revolutionary.
Business Growth and Impact
Following his invention, Avery founded Avery Adhesives in 1935, which later became Avery Dennison Corporation, a major player in the office products industry. The company’s success hinged on the widespread adoption of Avery’s labels in the 1940s and 1950s, particularly for advertising and product labeling.
Evolution of Stickers in the 20th Century
After Avery’s invention, the sticker industry saw significant growth. Stickers began to be used for various purposes, including advertising, product identification, and even political campaigns. Their ease of use, durability, and versatility made them popular across different sectors.
Stickers as a Cultural Phenomenon
In the latter half of the 20th century, stickers transcended their practical uses and became a cultural phenomenon. They were used as a form of personal expression, in activism, and as collectibles. Stickers became a ubiquitous part of everyday life, appearing on laptops, cars, street signs, and more.
The evolution of sticker technology continued with advancements in materials and adhesives. Vinyl stickers, holographic stickers, and even digital and smart stickers, which incorporate QR codes and NFC technology, are examples of how the sticker has continued to evolve.
Stickers Today and Their Impact
Today, stickers are more than just a tool for labeling and advertising. They have become a medium for personal and artistic expression. The diversity in types, shapes, sizes, and designs is a testament to their ubiquitous presence in our society.
With growing environmental concerns, the sticker industry has also been innovating in terms of sustainability. Biodegradable and eco-friendly stickers are now more common, addressing the need for sustainable practices in industry.
The Digital Age
The digital age has also impacted stickers. Digital or virtual stickers, popular on social media and messaging apps, are a modern iteration of Avery’s invention. They carry the same purpose of expression and communication but in a digital format.
The story of the sticker is a remarkable one, showcasing human ingenuity and the ability to evolve with changing times. From ancient Egyptian papyrus to the digital stickers of today, this journey reflects both technological advancement and cultural shifts. R. Stanton Avery’s contribution in 1935 was pivotal, setting the stage for the sticker to become an integral part of modern life. As we continue to innovate and adapt, the sticker remains a small yet significant testament to human creativity and adaptability.
