Starstuck: The Business of Celebrity, by Elizabeth Currid-Halkett

Starstruck: The Business of Celebrity Interesting quick read about modern celebrity and its impact on the economy, as well as the meaning and definitions of 'celebrity' as opposed to fame or talent.
This was a fun, sort of popcorn read, I am surprised by the amount of serious attention the book got, but I enjoyed it enough that I was only slightly enraged to see that the author thanked the ubiquitous and to me, intensely irritating, Sloane Crosley in the acknowledgements.
