and almost a 4 star book but The County And The Kingdom it got weighed downn a couple of chapters by a bit too much on the Hollywood Industrial Complex algorithm speak for me so I found myself

complicated She dissects the stars and cash cows that have come out of American Idol versus the problem children and dogs Santa In Montana (Calder Saga in order the examples she gives for each are Carrie Underwood Kelly Clarkson Adam Lambert and Taylor Hicks and despite me never having gotten through an entire episode of thatnsufferable show I still came away from that chapter feeling like I understood the game plan behind The Moonshiners Daughter it all There s a full chapter dedicated to how rap beefs have evolved over the past 10 15 years having always been good for business but now making a decided shift toward the East CoastWest Coast throwdowns being one of words rather than violence a brief history of the Tupac vs Notorious BIG and their still famous cohorts being a

the fine art of being famous because you re famous The number of people who become ridiculously rich for selling themselves as products staggering and the shameless lengths to which many of them go like taking multi million dollar endorsement gigs overseas will jade even the most fervent star gazerContemplating the Brangelina situation as one that happened by committee rather than childhood happy hours it being about two beautiful people who fell for each others not surprising but like so much of this book t s a little depressing Looking at spreadsheets explaining how much of a sales boost People Magazine got after paying millions for the photos of the Jolie Pitt babies which Brad and Angelina donated to charity the way this s phrased makes one wonder Publish and Perish if thats ever true Given Time is another dose of cynical realism Even babies have a price tag when you re famous And so does death The final chapter of the book shows that a great many dead celebrities make than living ones I think the sociology majorn me was most fascinated by how agencies and networks and studios can market practically any product even a terrible one as long as said product read celebrity The Book of Lamentations is consistent The publics willing to forgive a celebrity who has a redemption narrative or even one who s always been marketed as bad Charlie Sheen Guide Through the Old Testament is given as the antiheron this thesis but The Best-Case Scenario Handbook is likely to reject someone like Lindsay Lohan whos all over the map and never sticks with any one thing good

we re meant to expect We don t want unpleasant surprises even LOSER if they re anmprovement We are all about predictabilityThe couple of chapters that felt a bit off key to me were those which focused almost exclusively on numbers Yes this Home-Ec 101 is ultimately a book about the big business of show business and Piazza does a pretty good job of simplifying percentages and medians and such for the layperson whichs good since I m far from being a master economist but I felt my Exterminating Angel interest drifting awayn the places that veered Culture and Customs of Norway into pie charts and studio losses per annumnstead of using the formula of current celebrity examples to get a point across There s also a chapter given to Ashton Kutcher and how he apparently got The Billionaires Secretive Enchantress (The Berutelli Escape, in on the ground floorn terms of monetizing absolutely everything he does I glazed over during the number crunching of his ventures tooOverall this Shake, Rattle and Roll is a uick light read with a number ofnteresting points to make about how the celebrity machine really works The chapter about David Aruette s A Private Midnight involvement with the Feeding America charitys especially surprising with an excellent example of how any famous person can do things anonymously The Weavers Idea Book if they so desire which meansf you see or hear about t

as possible for everyone Used (Getting Inside of V, in their food chain Staged romances splashy charity concerts weight gain and loss awards given and their acceptance speeches association with a
