In case you even think Anthony Bourdain could be a sellout you have to think of what that means? Popularity, fame, fortune? Bourdain is one of the realest, manliest and most authentic people on TV. So what if millions of people love him and he makes millions of dollars for it, good for him. I guarantee this trash below was written by a jealous, cold wannabe who isn’t half as interesting as Anthony Bourdain.
In case you haven’t noticed, however, we live in a media age, and I can’t blame Anthony Bourdain for selling out as soon as TV came a-calling. It’s not like he was a Nobel Prize-winning poet, anyway – he was just a chef, folks, and not a particularly distinguished one at that. At least his first foray into the televisual realm was on the Food Network: the 12-part A Cook’s Tour, which played off on his willingness to eat gross local specialties from around the globe. Fair enough, and he did write a very entertaining book to go with it.
(Blogger) I dismiss the idea honestly. What is “selling out” anyway? Is it becoming popular? If so, it’s a bit ironic – and more than a bit hypocritical – that each and every one of us aspires to success and perhaps a bit of infamy in our line of work; yet when someone else accomplishes the same goals, we trash them for “selling out”. …. We agree with the bloggers response to this at Anthony Bourdain’s blog, let us know what you think below.
