At what point do we become Pop-Culture Icons?

I have asked myself this question so often that not just my brain hurts but my hair does too.
The rules for being a pop-cultural icon have changed in the last 10 years with the internet, cell phones, and podcasts. So what makes one iconic?

With terms like Paparazzi, Glitterati, Internet Famous, Reality Tv Stars and Society Idols, when and where does one actually cross over into Fandom?

Back in the day one had to weld a powerful sword of words, wit and wisdom to be considered a relevant personality. Beauty helped. Money too. In the end it was talent and the circle you kept. Now, it's change just slightly. Now it's the circle you keep, your money beauty with no talent needed. Just a video phone and a youtube account.

What do you do when your Vogue idea is to be in Vogue?
