The Man Who Wrote THE Book On Madonna - Matthew Rettenmund
Matthew Rettenmund, author and blogger for the popular LGBT blog Boy Culture chats with me about his two newest books - Encyclopedia Madonnica 2.0 (the ultimate book on the Queen of Pop) and Starf*cker, a memoir chronicling his life into and through the world of pop culture, founding a successful teen magazine and his obsession with celebrities.
The ultimate pop-culture enthusiast, Matthew has been obsessed with celebrities ever since he was born. Starf*cker documents Rettenmund's affection --in the case of Madonna, it's pure mania--for movie, television, and music personalities.
From his years as a star-obsessed gayby to his contradictory careers in porn and as a teen-mag editor (names will be named), Matthew details and deconstructs his - and our - passion for celebrity.
Matthew shares stories from behind the scenes during his years working on a teen fan magazine - dealing with teen stars like Zac Efron, Justin Bieber and many boy bands along the way.
Plus, Matthew talks about his approach to writing and editing a successful daily blog.
Really insightful interview for folks who are fans of pop culture (like me).
