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.

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.
