From festivals in Florida to touring Dracula’s digs in Romania, we round up the best destinations to visit this October. As summer abandons Europe again this October, eke out the last of the rays and raves in Ibiza, where nightclubs will be going out with a bang for the winter break. When the party finally stops head to the island’s north.
On the contrary. One could argue it’s one of the few good things to emerge from The Year of Coronavirus.
Think about it. When was the last time we all heard or cared about a movie star dating another movie star, or marrying one, or cheating on one? When was the last time some crazy promotional stunt had the whole country talking about a rapper or an actor?
Gossip feels as stupid as it is. And the lack of new movie buzz, celebrity appearances, concert tours or Coachella-like festivals have robbed spotlight grabbers of their relevance — and therefore of their dominance. People like Dr. Anthony Fauci, an 80-year-old, white-haired, infectious disease specialist, have taken their place.
Talk about tables turning. When COVID-19 sent Americans scrambling into their homes a year ago, some thought the celebrity world would boom. After all, with everyone locked in, nothing to do but watch TV or be online, wasn’t that a perfect scenario for the entertainment class to hog the stage? Didn’t movie stars grow larger-than-life during World War II?
That was then. In this war, the entertainers were locked down as well. Who really wanted to watch a late-night host like Jimmy Fallon fawn over an actor through a Zoom screen? It was dull and often cringeworthy.
It was worse than it sounds. And it doesn’t sound good. These efforts, while liked by some steadfast fans, were overwhelmingly disdained by a public that was in no mood for rich, pampered stars to tell us how we’re all in this together.
The cumulative effect was a divorce from our entertainment obsession. And you know what? We did just fine without stars on couches hawking their films, or breathless headlines about weekend box office figures.
Nobody missed the bad boy behavior of rock bands on the road. We actually didn’t need Instagram posts from parties that “influencers” were paid to attend.
When everyone is tucked in fear, trying to avoid an enemy outside the door, fame for fame’s sake seems awfully trivial. The message of “we’re all in this together” doesn’t work as an audience builder.
All it does is remind people “Hey, that guy’s no better than me.” Or “that woman doesn’t deserve special medical treatment.” you can all agree with me right ?
If anything, the virus has leveled the reverence between regular folks and the celebrity class. It’s one thing to pay to see a good-looking person on a silver screen. It’s another to let that person get ahead of you for a vaccine.
You could argue America is better off for having sidelined its obsession with the rich and famous. Not that it’s gone completely. The recent brushups over “The Bachelor” or a Britney Spears documentary prove that. And once COVID-19 is controlled, and movies, concerts, sporting events and all their attendant glitter returns, it’s likely gushing fans will race back as well.
But for now, why should anyone care about Harry and Meghan? Or who’ll get how much when Kim and Kanye sign their papers? The old expression goes “if a tree falls in the woods but no one is there to hear it, did it make a sound?” The same holds for celebrity during a pandemic.
If the audience is preoccupied with saving their house, their job, their lives, who’s hooking up or splitting up doesn’t make — or deserve — a peep.
