When asked about his improbable journey from Lennon to Hilton, Mr. Mintz explained that in his eyes he once represented an artist who stood for the dreams and values of a generation. And now he represents an heiress who, well, stands for the dreams and values of a generation.
“Young people don’t believe in politicians,” he said. “They don’t believe in their leaders. They look to celebrities to represent them.”The funny thing is that it's the media he hates, not the people who let themselves be represented by a woman who cried when her own rip-off of Blondie played on the radio. Or, say, not himself, the person who helps promote said woman.
