[new] pop stars are not pop (Avg. Score: none / Raters: 0) (#3)

i'm not sure i agree completely... and that's my impression of the negri story as well... it's not *exactly* the same as the queen, but i'd argue that the hierarchical altitude of pop stars - be they michael jackson, bill gates or anton negri, is higher than the hierarchical altitude of the queen. remember john lennon's old "we're bigger than jesus" remark? i'll leave religion out of this one - but i'd suggest that part of the reason everybody's happy to curtsy to the queen is that she really is just a figurehead - there's something quaint about it, about chirac touching the royal back, and so on, knowing that in the end it's all symbolic...

michael jackson, bill gates, anton negri on the other hand remind us and our peers that they *really are* superior to us peasants... after all, they got "there" - why didn't we? their may not be physical curtsying to these monarchs, but i'd argue that the acts of submissiveness are much more real.
