    POP STARS???

    Amazing that such a quote still holds true today...I didn't even know that the French in the time of the Marquis de Sade used the term "pop star."

    Makes more sense that this quote is from Sade, not De Sade.

    It's hilarious, but it took me FOREVER because I couldn't imagine that it was "pop stars!"

    "Franz Liszt invenÂ*ted the whole concept of the pianÂ*ist as star: a virÂ*tuÂ*oso who takes centre stage for an entire evenÂ*ing, playÂ*ing in proÂ*file to a conÂ*cenÂ*trated, adorÂ*ing, enrapÂ*tured audiÂ*ence. In fact, his mere presÂ*ence on stage caused women to swoon. They would keep his disÂ*carded cigar butts nestled in their cleavages."--from an internet bio of Franz Liszt There were pop stars in the Marquis de Sade's day.

    How funny, I didn't pay attention to the author. I was shocked to see his picture. A fun mistake.

    …Lisztomania … I too doubt that this could be from de Sade, I've found it attributed to Thomas Beecham who died in 1961 - that seems to make more sense as to the use of "pop star".

    I wonder if the women throw their pantaloons at Liszt, when he was on stage.

    If the Marquis said it, he would have said it in French - this would be the translation.
