Chris Farley - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
[ 33 advanced heart disease, body couldn't take the abuse any more, overdose much more likelier ] Following his final guest appearance on SNL on October 25, 1997 there was a visible decline in Farley's health. Farley's hoarse voice and flushed skin were the subject of public scrutiny.[35] In the final years of his life, Farley had sought treatment for obesity and drug abuse on 17 occasions.[36] On December 18, 1997, he was found dead by his younger brother, John, in his apartment in the John Hancock Center in Chicago.[37] An autopsy later revealed that Farley had died of a cocaine and morphine overdose early that morning.[38] Advanced atherosclerosis was cited as a "significant contributing factor."[24] Farley's death is often compared to that of his SNL idol John Belushi, who also died at age 33 of an accidental drug overdose consisting of cocaine and heroin.[14]

Jack Gleeson on Celebrity Culture - YouTube
When even the abominable King Joffrey Baratheon recognizes something is unfair... Seriously though, actor Jack Gleeson's rapid rise to fame gave him a unique perspective on how vapid and abysmal the concept of celebrity is.

The Shazam Effect - The Atlantic
"“Because the most-popular songs now stay on the charts for months, the relative value of a hit has exploded. The top 1 percent of bands and solo artists now earn 77 percent of all revenue from recorded music, media researchers report. And even though the amount of digital music sold has surged, the 10 best-selling tracks command 82 percent more of the market than they did a decade ago. The advent of do-it-yourself artists in the digital age may have grown music’s long tail, but its fat head keeps getting fatter.”" &! &! &! &!

On the Origin of Celebrity - Issue 5: Fame - Nautilus
"Why the obsession? Because we’re primates with vested interests in tracking social hierarchies and patterns of social affiliation. And celebrities provide our primate minds with stimulating gyrations of hierarchy and affiliation (who is sleeping with, feuding with, out-earning whom). [...] Why is rank so important to a baboon? For one thing, a stable dominance system is a huge social convenience—it insures bloody teeth and claws don’t reign each time a potential conflict arises." - via &!&! "We think that fame is deserved. We are wrong. [...] These two traits—our compulsion to tell stories, and our bias towards the individual—conspire to ruin our intuitive understanding of fame. [...] There is no such thing as fate, only the story of fate." << via

Ich bin nicht Eure Freundin! - YouTube
Ich bin nicht Eure Freundin. Nicht, weil ich Euch nicht respektiere. Sondernd gerade weil ich das tue, müssen wir darüber sprechen. Und zwar ehrlich. Ich bin aber genau so wenig ein Star. Und ich bitte Euch inständig darum, mich und auch andere YouTuber nicht zu Stars zu machen. Gleichzeitig bitte ich meine YouTube Kollegen, sich nicht als etwas zu verkaufen, was sie nicht sind. Diese Ehrlichkeit und Menschlichkeit sind wir uns schuldig. Denn ohne sie verlieren wir die Chance, hier einen Unterschied zu machen. Ich hab keine Antwort auf die Frage, wie wir das schaffen können. Noch nicht. Aber ich glaube, im Austausch über dieses Thema liegt die Chance. Die Antwort irgendwann zu finde

Fame is a temporary thing. They are normal people.

Charlie Sheen Could Teach Wall Street a Lesson: Matthew Lynn - Bloomberg
And yet if there is a single lesson to be learned from the last decade, it is that the public -- or the customer -- is more forgiving. In fact, the more outrageously a celebrity behaves, and the less contrition he or she shows, the more we find them alluring. It pays to be bad, and slightly nutty as well.

Sheen has clearly struck a nerve. His over-the-top partying isn’t just amusing. It is the kind of escapism that audiences want. Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards has been an iconic figure for 40 years with his excessive lifestyle, so it wasn’t surprising to see that his autobiography topped the best-seller charts over Christmas. We don’t want celebrities who come across as drab and boring.
Kate Moss was photographed taking drugs, her sponsors ran for cover. But Moss soon came back as popular as ever
Sheen is entitled to a private life. He’s not an elected official and doesn’t offer moral guidance to anyone. If he wants to party like a wild animal, that’s his business.
