Lessons From The Red Head & From The Enfant Terrible.

June 17th, 2011 by Martine St-Victor

Last weekend, Conan O’Brien delivered the Commencement Address at Ivy League Darmouth. There was nothing conventional about it. Not its tone, not its delivery and certainly not its message. I suppose that’s why I’ve been thinking about it ever since I saw it

Miseducated.

January 24th, 2011 by Martine St-Victor

In 1998, I had a bad breakup.  Breakups are rarely easy but this one was particularly difficult because not only was I heartbroken but also, my ego was crushed to its core.  I was too proud to cry on anyone’s shoulder so I sulked for longer than I wish to admit and found therapy via [...]

Michelle & Michel

November 19th, 2010 by Martine St-Victor

Martelly is close to the people. He looks people in the eyes, asks for their first name & actually remembers the names once the cameras stop rolling. Bachelet & him have that in common.

So You’ve Fucked Up. Now What?

September 5th, 2010 by Martine St-Victor

I just saw the commercial for the upcoming new season of Desperate Housewives. The beautifully shot 61 seconds features all four of the housewives and a newly-arrived-to-the-hood Vanessa Williams.

Oh, Montréal. How I Love Thee.

June 14th, 2010 by Martine St-Victor

Top photo is from Herby.TV There are many ways Montréal distinguishes itself from big North American cities. First, it’s an island. Second, there is the language. Sure, many Montrealers are bilingual but en français is how it’s done here. It’s a cultural metropolis with its own definition for joie de vivre and Montréal is part [...]

My 2-Year Love Affair With Twitter (And The Birth of WebTweet Montréal)

April 18th, 2010 by Martine St-Victor

Photo taken from ceospeaks.wordpress.com I’m about to celebrate my second anniversary on Twitter. I joined the now almost mainstream micro-blogging site at the urgency of friend, and fellow Barackanista, McLean Greaves. At the time, McLean & I were fully invested in the U.S. Democratic race (well, as much as Canadians could be). Barack Obama’s name [...]

Voyeurism: 1, Privacy: 0

March 30th, 2010 by Martine St-Victor

*Photo taken from Madre’s Missives. Yesterday, various news agencies & all social media outlets were tripping over themselves reporting Ricky Martin’s revelation of his sexual orientation. Unless you’ve been living in Amish country, the fact Ricky is a homosexual was no surprise. I find it quite unfortunate that today; a public figure’s orientation still makes [...]

PR & Fashion For A Purpose.

February 6th, 2010 by Martine St-Victor

Being a publicist is great. You get instant gratification by seeing your clients’ names in the papers and their faces on television. Lasting gratification comes from the people you meet in the process and who remain in your life. Still, in times like these, in the aftermath of Haiti’s earthquake, you feel helpless and wish [...]

A Raise for Tiger’s Publicist, Please.

January 4th, 2010 by Martine St-Victor

Here’s Vanity Fair’s upcoming February cover. It’s not a different Tiger: it’s the real Tiger. The one that is buff, thirty-something, cocky, sexual and human. It takes guts to break an image that has been carved by others for over a decade. Guts usually pays off.

The World’s Future is in Rihanna’s hands. Sort of.

February 16th, 2009 by Martine St-Victor

A week into RiRi-gate, I recognize the whole Rihanna-Chris Brown affaire as a PR nightmare. But beyond that and most importantly, I view Rihanna’s eventual coming out as potentially being one of Pop Culture’s most defining moments. Too strong? Not at all. Too many times, celebrities have bypassed the law. Too many times, domestic violence [...]

Palin hearts Neiman Marcus? Which woman in her right mind doesn’t?

October 23rd, 2008 by Martine St-Victor

By no stretch of the imagination am I a fan in any way, shape or form of Sarah Palin. Still, I find ridiculous all the media brouhaha over her $150 000 shopping spree. Who cares? That’s RNC money. I can already imagine the headlines and comments had Governor Palin not undergone her much needed makeover. [...]

And The Winner Is: Vanity Fair! Again.

April 29th, 2008 by Martine St-Victor

Over the weekend, pictures of 15-year-old Miley Cyrus in a Vanity Fair spread, surfaced to stunned pop cultural followers. It isn’t the image of a bare-backed 15-year old that was shocking but rather the fact that anyone, would toy with the billion-dollar Industry both the Disney Channel and Team Miley Cyrus have created. That’s simply [...]

Stuff (insert ethnic, religious or race epithet here) Like.

April 14th, 2008 by Martine St-Victor

Not long ago, I was introduced to a witty blog called “Stuff White People Like” (www.stuffwhitepeoplelike.wordpress.com). It’s funny, sarcastic & smart. Obviously, like all good things, it has been copied and unfortunately, not so cleverly imitated. Stuff Indian people like & Stuff Jewish Young Adults like have already hit the blogosphere and now no ethnic [...]
