  Mandatory accessories behind every Diva are tons of devoted fans or even one lone obsessive soul.  For me, the metaphor for Diva worship is the cult 80’s film of the same name directed by Jean-Jacques Beineix, about a young man who is obsessed with a stunningly beautiful opera singer played by Wilhelmenia Wiggins Fernandez.  The Diva never allows her performances recorded […]


New York City on the make is a churning pot of all kinds of Mob-Stars and Fame Gamers. The best New York stories happen every minute… when fortune smiles in chance meetings, in a flash hard work for years is rewarded, creative collabs are formed or the hand of Fate puts one suddenly on the […]

For the past ten years, the American culture has been driven by an obsession of luxury […]

Artists, Leaders, […]
