Entertainment Writer Has Knack For Making Complex Pop Culture Concepts Accessible To Lay Readers

LOS ANGELES—Lauded by colleagues and readers alike for his lucid reportage, entertainment writer Paul Veist has an unparalleled knack for taking even the most complicated pop culture concepts and making them accessible for those with little or no technical understanding of celebrity matters, sources said Thursday. "Paul is a master at distilling the essence of convoluted topics such as stars' fashion faux pas and making them comprehensible without using a lot of esoteric, hard-to-follow mumbo jumbo," said People magazine reporter Tia Nadel, adding that Veist's use of engaging metaphor rather than confusing jargon has made his articles appearing on websites such as E! Online and TMZ.com extremely popular. "Even when he's writing about something as daunting and difficult to understand as Kim Kardashian releasing a new fragrance, you never feel as though he's being condescending or otherwise talking down to you." Many of Veist's avid readers said they find his stories a refreshing alternative to the impenetrable language featured in overly academic celebrity journals such as Entertainment Weekly.
