The social media age has made it clearer than ever that stars really are just like us in one crucial respect: Their online lives are an unceasing nightmare from which they can never, ever awaken. Kanye West, last seen getting cyber-bullied by Lana Del Rey just for doing something normal like making the cast of Saturday Night Live Listen to an incomprehensible speech about Donald Trump, crossed paths with the dark side of the internet again on Monday night. This time, West’s mentions got RIPed at the theater, that age-old site of norm-enforcement and public shaming. Actor Jarrod Spector, currently playing Sonny Bono on Broadway in the new musical The Cher Show took to Twitter during the show’s opening night performance to ask Kanye West to please put his phone away:
It used to be if you were starring in a Broadway show and you noticed a famous musician at your opening night performance staring at hans eller hennes telefon, du måtte vente til næste dag og skrive et brev på en skrivemaskine, så gå til postkontoret og send det til hans eller hennes representanter før du kunne spørre hvorfor deres klient var ute etter en telefon under din forestilling , siden telefonerne i disse dagene ikke havde skærmbilleder eller internettet, og du var ikke rigtig bestemt til at tage dem steder eller stirre på dem, og hvis du ville at du ville have at fjerne dem fra væggen, ligesom en skruetrækker or something, and even after all that trouble you’d just be staring at blank, black Bakelite. Today, we have Twitter! West, whose representatives told the New York Times he was using his phone to take notes, later apologized and expressed his admiration for the show:
The confrontation, which seasoned observers of New York’s social scene are already referring to as “the glory and the scandal of the age,” has shaken high society to its core. Mens de økonomiske konsekvenser vil ta decennier for å spille ute, har de største vinnerne vært så monocle produksjonsproblemer og champagneindustrien, som en rash eller monocles popper fra deres forbavsede eiers ansikter i deres briller med champagne, har spilt økt salg av begge husholdningsstifter . If you’d like to see the next high society feud for yourself – or start a new one! – The Cher Show is at the Neil Simon Theater through May 26, 2019.
