“Just a week after his purported $300 million deal with MySpace hit the rumor mill, 50 Cent and Viacom-owned MTV have announced a partnership that, according to a report in Variety, will feature the rapper hosting a new kind of hip-hop "Apprentice"-style show. The premise? Sixteen contestants will live together and compete in challenges that relate to being street-savvy, business smart and, no doubt, showing the same kind of deal-making prowess that is a common theme in the entrepreneurial urban music scene. Each week's episode will end with 50 Cent narrowing his search down by firing two of the contestants, so look out for that new catch phrase "You fired, bro."

In North America the popularity of both is in part related to demographics. Today Gen Y count more members (100 millions) that even their parents the baby boomers (70 millions) . This large groups of 15 to 30 years old people is a big consumer of celebrity gossip and pop culture but is also more interested in politics that Gen X. In one sense we have now the first generation to fully reconcile High & Low culture by totally blurring the line between the two. A lesson also perfectly understood by The Huffington Post and therefore explaining its huge success.

“Look at the figures: this week, it emerged that average audiences for The Oprah Winfrey Show have fallen by nearly 7 per cent in 2008, its third straight year of decline. From a peak of nearly nine million in 2004, the afternoon chat show's viewing figures are hovering perilously close to the psychologically-crucial seven million mark.
Then there's the failure of Oprah's Big Give, a prime-time philanthropy show that was launched with huge fanfare before Christmas, only to mislay nearly a third of its audience during an eight-week run. A mooted second series, again on the mass-market channel ABC, has been abandoned.Or what about the slow decline of O, the Oprah magazine? Its circulation has fallen more than 10 per cent in the past three years, to 2.4 million.”

Before there was Pink is the New Blog, Perez Hilton, or Jossip there was Andy Warhol. Most people know Mr. Warhol for his art, his films, and his wigs, but what many don’t know is that Andy was a first class gossip.The Andy Warhol Diaries were written by Pat Hackett and pulled from phone conversations the artist had almost daily from the 1970s up until his death in 1987. When the rather large book was released posthumously in 1990, it acted as a social account of the 70s and 80s, a large bound edition chronicling the lives of Hollywood stars, New York society, and the glitterati of the art world.

WHY OUR CURRENT 15 Y.O GIRL POP CULTURE IS BECOMING SO F*#@§ BORING

The final point to be made here, is about celebrity culture as a whole. It seems to me that celebrity culture is turning into a pastiche itself. As Tom Mole points out, the classic understanding of celebrity culture is "structuring the production, distribution and reception of texts around the mystique of a particularly fascinating individual" (Mole, "Hypertrophic Celebrity"). As these photo shoots show us (Lindsay Lohan posing as Marilyn Monroe, etc) there is also a new emergent behavior where production, distribution and reception is not structured around the mystique of a fascinating individual, but rather the mystique of the history of celebrity culture itself. Celebrity culture no longer has icons, but imitations of older icons.

“First, IQ scores in every country that measures them, including the United States, have been rising since the 1930s. Since the tests measure not knowledge but pure thinking capacity—what cognitive scientists call fluid intelligence, in that it can be applied to problems in any domain—then Gen Y's ignorance of facts (or of facts that older people think are important) reflects not dumbness but choice. And who's to say they are dumb because fewer of them than of their grandparents' generation care who wrote the oratorio "Messiah" (which 35 percent of college seniors knew in 2002, compared with 56 percent in 1955)? Similarly, we suspect that the decline in the percentage of college freshmen who say it's important to keep up with political affairs, from 60 percent in 1966 to 36 percent in 2005, reflects at least in part the fact that in 1966 politics determined whether you were going to get drafted and shipped to Vietnam. The apathy of 2005 is more a reflection of the world outside Gen-Yers' heads than inside, and one that we bet has changed tack with the historic candidacy of Barack Obama. Alienation is not dumbness."

Americans are accustomed to the idea that there is an ideological divide between the 70 million baby boomers (born between 1946 and 1964) and the 46 million members of Generation X (born between 1965 and 1981). Now comes the greatest split of all, thanks to the arrival on the scene of the largest and most diverse generation ever — the approximately 100 million members of the Millenial Generation (born between 1982 and 2003). According to sociologists and demographers who study the generations, Millenials are more optimistic, upbeat and idealistic about promoting social change than either boomers or X’ers. The Millenials are steeped in technology, fluent in YouTube, Google, Facebook and MySpace. They have faith in the federal government and think it can be a vehicle for good. And they’re more interested in working together to find solutions to difficult problems than in engaging in the partisan, red state/blue state skirmishes that many of us grew up with.

"There's only so much gossip," as Heidi said over lunch recently.Heidi and Spencer. "Speidi" for short.

She came to Los Angeles in August 2005 after a miserable fashion-school year in San Francisco where she met Lauren Conrad, late of MTV's "Laguna Beach." TMZ.com calls them "celebutards."

Each hosted all-night parties, at Bob’s Lafayette Street digs and Andy’s silver Factory, Bob jumping into the fray, Andy coldly observing.

“Back in Victorian America, women embraced the ideal of natural beauty, associating makeup with the artificial faces of prostitutes and showgirls. In the 1910s, when the flapper was the measure of femininity, Vogue signaled a significant shift, urging readers to (discreetly) use lipstick and rouge to enhance their beauty. Decades later, Clairol's legendary 1956 ad campaign - "Does she or doesn't she? Hair color so natural, only her hairdresser knows for sure" - publicized another turn; women in the Eisenhower years were hiding the gray, enhancing the red, and becoming blonde, but they still wanted it to remain a private matter. Unnatural changes to one's physical appearance were meant to be a secret - unless you were Marilyn Monroe."

When, in the summer of 2004, the magazine published its "50 Moments that changed the history of Rock 'n' Roll", the digital revolution – with the exception of the iPod – barely got a mention. Whereas Rolling Stone included the December 1980 assassination of John Lennon in its top 50 moments, it failed to include a much bloodier homicide – the June 1999 launch of the free peer-to-peer website Napster, an event which has unintentionally resulted in the destruction of much of the traditional recorded music industry.”

HUMANITIES PUBLISH OR PERISH CLOWNS

“Last year, Anthony T. Kronman, the former dean of Yale's law school, published "Education's End: Why Our Colleges and Universities Have Given Up on the Meaning of Life." This superb book traces the historical rise and fall of the humanities, which, Kronman writes, "are not merely in a crisis. They are in danger of becoming a laughingstock, both within the academy and outside it."In the past, Kronman argues, colleges and universities understood that undergraduates were hungry for answers to the Big Question: What is the meaning of life? And schools believed that not only religion but also higher education could help students find them. Humanities departments focused on great works of Western civilization, from Homer to Shakespeare. In short, Kronman writes, they gave their students a four-year seat in the unending "great conversation" of their civilization. But between political correctness and the "publish or perish" ethic of the modern research university, the humanities have lost the desire and the capability to guide students' spiritual quests. Instead, humanities professors stake their authority on an unrelenting critique not just of contemporary society but of meaning itself.
Once, humanities teachers cultivated perspective in their young charges; now, many of them instill grievance."

Though the Board of Trustees seems ready to sell anything not stapled to the ground, they hatch a "plan" to save the school by reforming its curriculum. Maybe it would have worked at Antioch, the well-known liberal arts college that shut its doors last year after ushering in the era of 1990s political correctness by adding the phrase "may I proceed to the level of intimacy?" to the national discussion.

“BEAUTY IS A SIGN OF INTELLIGENCE" -ANDY WARHOL

BEFORE

“It's just like the comedies from the thirties where the poor young guy arrives in Gotham showers, shaves puts on a good suit, and goes out into Society to mingle and nobody can tell that he's not the heir to some fortune. He's intelligent and well-dressed and clean, so what's the difference?".

-Andy Warhol

AFTER

“You don't have to be an heiress to look like one, if you act like one then everyone will just presume you are one.”

-Paris Hilton

POST WARHOL PREDICTION: IN THE FUTURE A WOMAN MAGAZINE WILL WRITE «IS GIVING HEAD AS FACIAL EXERCICES GOOD AT PREVENTING WRINKLES? A QUIZZ FOR YOU!»

SLEEP 2008 VERSION

“IT'S CALLED GOSSIP AND OF COURSE IT'S AN OBSESSION OF MINE" -ANDY WARHOL

“No one really cares like, you know, ''I woke up today and I got into a fight with my mom and then I went to jog in the park and then to my ex-boyfriend's and then someone tried to mug me.'' Who gives a fuck? I don't give a fuck. I don't want to read about some random stranger's life. But I like to read about celebrities' lives."

Perez Hilton

WOMEN IN REVOLT

“If you live in rock and roll, as I do, you see the reality of sex, of male lust and women being aroused by male lust. It attracts women. It doesn't repel them."

-Camille Paglia

“EVERYBODY MUST HAVE A FANTASY" -ANDY WARHOL

“IT'S CALLED GOSSIP AND OF COURSE IT'S AN OBSESSION OF MINE" -ANDY WARHOL

“The decline of star power comes as consumers are viewing film actors differently. Such voyeuristic media outlets as "Access Hollywood" and TMZ.com have demystified celebrities even as they feed unprecedented interest. Why turn out for a favorite star's movie if you can watch him walk his dog on TV and the Internet?

"Mystique is what draws people to the movies," PMK publicist Catherine Olim says. "People want to go to the movies to get lost in a performance. And it's hard to do that with so much interference."
