Liberace - King of Bling

King of Bling

Liberace was a famous pianist of Polish and Italian descent. During the 1950s–1970s he was the highest paid entertainer in the world. Liberace created a very successful publicity machine which helped rocket him to stardom.

He began to expand his act and made it more extravagant, with more costumes and a larger supporting cast.

Liberace was the originator of ostentation, and trademarked him as the King of Bling.

Liberace gets a shout-out in "Bling: The Hip-Hop Jewelry Book" as a pioneer of the luxe life. Reggie Osse (coauthor of the book) says:

  • He was very flamboyant and had no hesitation in showing his wealth. The guy was just glowing with jewelry.

Consider Liberace's appetite for finer things: 400 costumes, more than half a dozen homes, 30 to 50 cars, at least 26 dogs, and a museum devoted entirely to himself.

That's not too far from today rappers who adorn their teeth with diamonds or show big necklaces with dollar signs. They're the Liberaces of today.
