"Fame": A Playlist for the Premiere of $ellebrity at SXSW

Posted: 03/ 9/2012 2:38 am

This Sunday in Austin, Texas, $ellebrity -- the first feature documentary directed by respected celebrity photographer Kevin Mazur -- will premiere at the South by Southwest Film Festival. I know this because I'm an executive producer of the film -- which in this case means that I had the considerable pleasure of filming remarkably candid interviews with assorted famous folks like Jennifer Aniston, Elton John, Jennifer Lopez, Marc Anthony, Sarah Jessica Parker, Kid Rock and Sheryl Crow, among many other interesting people, about the state of fame today. $ellebrity -- which Huff Po recently spotlighted as one of the most anticipated films of the SXSW Film Festival -- explores the good, the bad and the ugly about our cultural obsession with fame -- and the way that technology has changed the tone and texture of celebrity. All of us who worked on the film can't wait for audiences to see Kevin's movie, and if we all just so happen to get more famous because of $ellebrity, well, then we'll just have to live with that too. Here then for Kevin, Producer Tricia Nolan and the whole team is a soon-to-be-famous playlist for $ellebrity -- which we just might use to entertain at our after-party hosted by Sheryl Crow in Austin this weekend. As always, please add your own songs about fame below.
