Abstract

Aim of this paper is to show different type of production of celebrity. Case of popular Croatian singer Marko Perković Thompson shows that unlike popularity in the west that is produced through the news about private life of popular persona, in Croatia avoiding of private life can lead to popularity.

***

Namen prispevka je prikazati raznolikost produkcije slave. Na primeru priljubljenega pevca Marka Perkovića Thompsona je razvidno, da se za razliko od priljubljenosti na zahodu, ki nastaja z novicami o zasebnem življenju, na Hrvaškem ta lahko utrjuje z izogibanjem razkrivanja zasebnosti.
