'Whilst pop as a field of knowledge is authorless, and unauthorised, the optimised individual, the celebrity role (role-model) is played out in a mediated sphere that demonstrates the constructedness of life (and of work) and, hence, for Gossip Pop and contemporary art, suggests practical methodologies and commensurate production potential. Celebrities adopt and act out a range of roles and are slotted into the revelations, fabrications and recycled scripts of tabloid vernacular.'
