I'm really interested to see how the current president of France, Nicolas Sarkozy, will respond to the recent news story that one of his son's from his first marriage has secretly been producing hip-hop songs under the name of "DJ Mosey." In his previous position as interior minister, Sarkozy "initiated cases against French rappers...for defaming the police." I'm mostly fascinated by this because as soon as I read this story, I started thinking about what is going on with the French presidential media team. They're probably working overtime over the next few days to field statements from the press. Or did they know about Mosey's work in advance, giving them time to prepare statements and positions?
Meanwhile...DJ Mosey just got a ton of publicity and since most of the stories published the address of his MySpace page, I'm sure he also made a lot of new friends.
And now all of this thinking about media and PR-spinning has reminded me that my vacation is over in only a few more days...
