COMMENT | “In the future, everyone will be world-famous for 15 minutes,” said intellectual prankster/artist Andy Warhol in 1968.
As with any pithy quip, Warhol was both right and wrong.
Right because the music industry has had many one-hit wonders. So yesterday, if you are still horsing around in Gangnam at parties.
And wrong because the Kardashians are still famous for being famous, ad nauseum.
A few days ago, Mohd Nazifuddin Najib had his 15 minutes or so in the public eye with his trip to Taiwan.
Ha! The uproar! People, who had probably railed against the oppressive, restrictive moral police of the previous government, became insufferable, supercilious self-righteous moral guardians themselves.
Wah, drinking wine, haram. Shame, shame, daddy facing trial, and unfilial you are gallivanting in Taiwan. People donating money for daddy’s bail, and you are not contributing.
Such sanctimonious crap...
