Celebrity Blog - Buzz Hype and Every New About Stars

Famous quotes containing the words stars, hype, celebrity and/or buzz:

    While the stars that oversprinkle
    All the heavens, seem to twinkle
    With a crystalline delight;
    Keeping time, time, time,
    In a sort of Runic rhyme,
    To the tintinnabulation that so musically wells
    From the bells, bells, bells, bells,
    Edgar Allan Poe (1809–1849)

    Fashion is primitive in its insistence on exhibitionism, which withers in isolation. The catwalk fashion show with its incandescent hype is its apotheosis. A ritualized gathering of connoiseurs and the spoilt at a spotlit parade of snazzy pulchritude, it is an industrialized version of the pagan festivals of renewal. At the end of each seasonal display, a priesthood is enjoined to carry news of the omens to the masses.
    Stephen Bayley (b. 1951)

    My great comfort is, that the temporary celebrity I have wrung from the world has been in the very teeth of all opinions and prejudices. I have flattered no ruling powers; I have never concealed a single thought that tempted me.
    George Gordon Noel Byron (1788–1824)

    Time grows dim. Time that was so long
    grows short, time, all goggle-eyed,
    wiggling her skirts, singing her torch song,
    giving the boys a buzz and a ride,
    that Nazi Mama with her beer and sauerkraut.
    Time, old gal of mine, will soon dim out.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
