The evolution of celebrity culture



The evolution of celebrity culture

In this episode:

  • A-listers treat podcasts as recognition. We will explore why celebrities use it to spill tea.
  • Avenue magazine editor in chief, Ben Widdicombe, talks about celebrity gossip reporting his heyday, which he chronicles in his new book, “Gatecrasher”.
  • And celebrity paranormal, Chris Medina, provides more details about his reading of the former “Vanderpump Rules” star Stassi Schroeder – and even read Maggie and Ian.

Here are a few examples of today’s stories:

‘Gatecrasher’ from the world of celebrities

As a gossip reporter, Ben Widdicombe has been covering rich and famous people for almost 20 years in New York City. Now the editor in chief of Avenue magazine, he noted the ‘gatecrashing’ years in his new book entitled, “Gatecrasher: How I Helped the Rich Become Famous and Damaging the World

Could you tell us a little more about the full title of this book?

“It’s kind of a fact that as a gossip reporter in particular, it’s not like all of this happens remotely. And we, as gossip reporters, I feel somewhat involved in turning on the spectacle. So, even though it’s very fun and there are a lot of bad behaviors that explained in this book, I feel I didn’t really beg them to stop because I’m a gossip reporter. And you want this outrageous behavior because that’s the kind of thing they would call it. “

Do you have regrets for making a famous star or giving them airtime?

“No, not at all. I mean, because most of the people we cover are among us. Well? I mean, they really need fame. Entertaining us is their job.

The only person I have sympathy for is the Olsen twins, because I think the two young people have never made the choice to enter the show business. Their parents put it on television when they were babies in “Full House,” and they said they never had a choice. And then they have a series of long films, you might remember, where they solve crimes and whatnot when they like [ages] 8, 10 and 12. And it’s true that they can jump, I guess. But, at the Aughts, which is a place where many actions at “Gatecrasher” take place, they are very famous and so hunted. And that is the only two people I have ever thought of, ‘These are people who are in situations that are not their own.’

But Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan? All those people really need attention. So, no, I have no qualms about covering them. “

Psychic connection

Last year, celebrity psychic Chris Medina read Stassi Schroeder for his “Straight Up with Stassi” podcast. He spoke with Maggie and Ian recently about the experience, and explained more about the ongoing drama for the former “Vanderpump Rules” star.

Are we going to see a comeback from Stassi? What did you predict for him?

“You can, you can’t hold bad bitches for too long. That’s what I’m going to say. And I really feel like what Stassi is and what people don’t realize or remember from that episode is that I want to go further into detail when come to his personal life and things that are happening, but at the same time, Stassi, we all know him, he plays very close to the chest when it comes to him on a personal level, he has no problem slapping someone in the face and communicating his intentions in a way that. But when it comes to him personally, he will keep a lot of things in it. So I don’t really get the chance to dive as much as I want. But this is someone today who is hit with evolution and transformation. “

Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.



Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.

Maestro Filipe Cunha, Artistic Director of the Philharmonic Orchestra of Braga, has been invited to conduct the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra, as announced today.

According to a statement sent by O MINHO, “he will be the first Portuguese conductor to conduct this orchestra in its entire history.”

In addition to this orchestra, the maestro will also work with the Lyceo Mozarteum de la Habana Symphony Orchestra.

The concerts will take place on 4 and 12 March 2023 at the National Theater of Cuba in Havana.

In the words of the maestro, quoted in the statement, “these will be very beautiful concerts with difficult but very complex pieces” and therefore he feels “very motivated”.

From the very beginning, Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2 will be performed by an Italian pianist (Luigi Borzillo), whom the maestro wants to bring to Portugal later this year. In the same concert, Mendelshon’s First Symphony will be performed.

Then, at the second concert, in the company of the Mexican clarinetist Angel Zedillo, he will perform the Louis Sfora Concerto No. 2. In this concert, the maestro also conducts Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony.

“This is an international recognition of my work. An invitation that I accept with humility and great responsibility. I was surprised to learn that I would be the first Portuguese member of the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra. This is a very great honor,” the maestro said in a statement.

“I take with me the name of the city of Braga and Portugal with all the responsibility that goes with it, and I hope to do a good job there, leaving a good image and putting on great concerts. These will be very special concerts because, in addition to performing pieces that I love, especially Rachmaninov and Tchaikovsky, I will be directing two wonderful soloists who are also my friends. It will be very beautiful,” concludes Filipe Cunha.
