Celebrity Blog - Buzz Hype and Every New About Stars

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

    the gray filth of it:
    the knowledge that humankind,
    delicate Man, whose flesh
    responds to a caress, whose eyes
    are flowers that perceive the stars ...
    Denise Levertov (b. 1923)

    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)

    The hero was distinguished by his achievement; the celebrity by his image or trademark. The hero created himself; the celebrity is created by the media. The hero was a big man; the celebrity is a big name.
    Daniel J. Boorstin (b. 1914)

    Next to an old-fashioned church social, or possibly a monster bridge party, there is no buzz which can equal the sibilant buzz of a matinée.
    Robert Benchley (1889–1945)
