Like it a lot. "what if Discordia had a sort of pop-idol?"
First part of the story had me wikipedia-ing for this guy's name (often enough famous people's names are posted and I have no idea who they are), but there's like 8 of them on wikipedia
How did you come up with the name?
Also, dunno if you've seen the movie "So Fucking What", but it sort of explores the same topics. Not gonna say which ones in your story specifically, you'll have to watch it
It's a pretty good movie (IMO)
