First and foremost, I'm a journalist. My business is the truth. Now, I happen to be other things, too - a pop-culture phenomenon, the most in-demand speaker on the campus lecture circuit, whatever.— Milo Yiannopoulos
Reckoning Pop Culture quotations
You dont have to burn books to destroy a culture. Just get people to stop reading them.
After pop art, graffiti is probably the biggest art movement in recent history to have such an impact on culture.
May the Force be with you.
Those who are able to see beyond the shadows and lies of their culture will never be understood, let alone believed, by the masses.
Twentieth-century culture's disease is the inability to feel their reality.
People cluster to TV, soap operas, movies, theater, pop idols and they have wild emotion over symbols. But in the reality of their own lives, they're emotionally dead.
Pop culture used to be like LSD – different, eye-opening and reasonably dangerous. It’s now like crack – isolating, wasteful and with no redeeming qualities whatsoever.
Superheroes fill a gap in the pop culture psyche, similar to the role of Greek mythology. There isn't really anything else that does the job in modern terms. For me, Batman is the one that can most clearly be taken seriously.
I think music in itself is healing. It's an explosive expression of humanity. It's something we are all touched by. No matter what culture we're from, everyone loves music.
Pop culture is not about depth. It's about marketing, supply and demand, consumerism.
I think pop culture is the greatest subject matter out there - 'Other People's Lives,' as we wrote about on the last Duran Duran album. Most ideas for great songs come from real situations, something your friend said to you the night before, the girl that just left, or something traumatic in your life.
Pop culture is a reflection of social change, not a cause of social change.
Your culture is your brand
Remember, we're madly in love, so it's all right to kiss me anytime you feel like it.
Everything I know about pop culture I know from 'The Simpsons,' and they say the Grammys aren't very good.
There is no comparing the brutality and cynicism of today's pop culture with that of forty years ago: from High Noon to Robocop is a long descent.
Anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.
Yeah, I don't deal with current events or pop culture, and I avoid politics like the plague.
I hate recording all the shows for the week in one day, because I want to be able to mention current events and pop culture. If Madonna punches Britney in the face today, I want to reference that on 'Wine Library TV' tomorrow. Monday's episode is always the best, because it's hot off the press.
I'm absolutely obsessed with The Jesus And Mary Chain and Patti Smith, but I'm a massive pop fan. I love pop culture, It's a total reflection of the zeitgeist.
Translation is not a matter of words only: it is a matter of making intelligible a whole culture.
I think every artist subconsciously wants to evolve themselves.
Sometimes they get stuck in ruts because of pop culture, peer pressure, stuff like that. But what excites me most is exploring my own musical insights and expanding upon them.
I'm definitely curious. I love pop culture. I'm glued to it. I can watch garbage TV, but then I can also watch great theater.
I started with the book Boardwalk Empire and then immersed myself in the history of Atlantic City, World War I, the temperance movement, Prohibition, pop culture. I even read the news and magazines of the period just to soak in it. That was before I even started thinking of the story.
Culture eats strategy for breakfast.
It's up to us to take pop culture back and to express quality and dignity for both boys and girls.
You have to stay updated on trends, social things and pop culture, you need to stay with the times and keep evolving.
Popular culture no longer craves archangels and new dawns.
Pop culture traffics in vampires and deads of night.
People constantly make pop-culture references.
That's why it's called popular culture, because people are aware of it and reference it constantly.
I feel the need... the need for speed.
There are many more important things in life than fashion.
But fashion, to me, is part of pop culture. And I'm an art collector. I'm obsessed with art and pop culture. And I say that there is fame, fashion, art, music and entertainment, including celebrity, that really moves the needle in society.
The argument now that the spread of pop culture and consumer goods around the world represents the triumph of Western civilization trivializes Western culture. The essence of Western civilization is the Magna Carta, not the Magna Mac. The fact that non-Westerners may bite into the latter has no implications for their accepting the former.
Robots are interesting because they exist as a real technology that you can really study - you can get a degree in robotics - and they also have all this pop-culture real estate that they take up in people's minds.
I always think, quite frankly that pop culture is a lot more important than a lot of people realize.
So much of our cultural representation of what an investigative journalist looks like, in movies and pop culture, is about this really testosterone-filled dude screaming, "Give me what you got!" I didn't see myself as someone who would be good at or comfortable with that.
Pay no attention to pop culture, for it is what poisons our minds and divides our children. Materialism promotes negative values and egotism. Eliminate all of it. It is the plague of Big Business.
I'm not actually pop culture or social media savvy.
I really didn't know what Twitter was when I created an account.
I wanted to tell a dream-come-true story about going from a closeted gay kid who loved pop culture to an out adult man making pop culture. I went from being told when I was 21 that I should never go on TV because of my crossed eyes to winding up being a 'Housewives' whisperer and talk-show host.
There's still a lot of misogynist pop music out there, and I think that hearing something that's so explicitly feminist and so angry - when we're still growing up in a culture where girls and women are not supposed to be angry - is a real revelation for young women.
I like cinematic art that doesn't have to include violence as the main meat of emotion. Now, excellence in cinema is based on murder, guns. Tarantino bores me. Even though he is very appealing and very facile about putting elements of pop culture into his work. But it kinds of dates it, right?
I love how pop culture shapes a generation.
The trends, fashion and events all play a key part in how we live our present lives, and will mark how we will be remembered in the future.
Pop culture has entered into a nostalgic malaise.
Online culture is dominated by trivial mashups of the culture that existed before the onset of mashups, and by fandom responding to the dwindling outposts of centralized mass media. It is a culture of reaction without action.
