Hollywood, interrupted : insanity chic in Babylon - the case against celebrity / by Andrew breitbart an Mark Ebner
Hoboken, New Jersey: John Wiley and Sons, 2004.
Call No: 46(794) BRE Author: Breitbart, Andrew; Ebner, Mark Edition: 2004 Place: Hoboken, New Jersey Publisher: John Wiley and Sons PubDate: 2004 PhysDes: 394 pages : illustrations ; 22 cm Subject: HOLLYWOOD; CELEBRITIES; LOVE, COURTNEY; MADONNA; JACKSON, MICHAEL; SPIELBERG, STEVEN Summary: Hollywood, Interrupted is a sometimes frightening, occasionally sad, and frequently hysterical odyssey into the darkest realms of showbiz pathology, the endless stream of meltdowns and flameouts, and the inexplicable behavior on the part of show business personalities.
Charting celebrities from rehab to retox, to jails, cults, institutions, near-death experiences and the Democratic Party, Hollywood, Interrupted takes readers on a surreal field trip into the amoral belly of the entertainment industry. Each chapter — covering topics including warped Hollywood child-rearing, bad medicine, hypocritical political maneuvering and the complicit media — delivers a meticulously researched, interview-infused, attitude heavy dispatch which analyzes and deconstructs the myths created by the celebrities themselves.
Celebrities somehow believe that it's their god-given right to inflict their pathology on the rest of us. Hollywood, Interrupted illustrates how these dysfunctional dilettantes are mad as hell... And we're not going to take it any more. -- publisher's web site ISBN: 9780471706243 More info

Call No: 802.27 WOR Author: Worrell, Denise Source: US Place: New York Publisher: Atlantic Monthly PubDate: 1989 PhysDes: xvii, 270 p. : ill. ; 24 cm. Subject: MADONNA; SPIELBERG, STEVEN; MARTIN, STEVE; NEWMAN, PAUL; KINSKI, NASTASSJA; DYLAN, BOB; Lean, David; LUCAS, GEORGE; MIDLER, BETTE; STONE, OLIVER; JACKSON, MICHAEL Summary: "The in-depth psychological portraits presented in Icons are unlike any collection of celebrity profiles ever published. Most of these people have been interviewed so many times their answers had been turned to stone. Interviewers, too, are icon builders, and ask the same questions over and over. Celebreties, despite fame, are struggling to maintain their own living voices. It is Worrell's special gift as an interviewer and writer to hold up a mirror to the most closely held of reflections. Icons reads like a collection of finely honed short storie and raises the craft of celebrity reporting to the finest journalism." -- BOOK BLURB ISBN: 0871133067 Donation: Donated by Simon Wincer Contents: Author's note -- Acknowledgements -- Introduction by Otto Friedrich -- Madonna is her given name -- The Eternal Childhood of Steven Spielberg -- Steve Martin in color -- Plain-wrap superstar Paul Newman -- Nastassia Kinski: wild child -- Bob Dylan down executioner's row -- David Lean on the far horizon -- The dark side of George Lucas -- Very very Bette Midler -- Oliver Stone goes to war -- Michael Jackson in Never-Never Land.
