To "yassify" something, in the account's parlance, is to apply several beauty filters to a picture using FaceApp, an A.I. photo-editing application, until its subject --- be that a celebrity, a historical figure, a fictional character or a work of fine art --- becomes almost unrecognizably made up. ("What Does It Mean to 'Yassify' Anything?", Shane O'neill, NYT, +2021.11.24)
I always detested the popular performer Cher.com (DBA: "Cher") as a plastic fake human being, in the same category as Nancy Reagan and my father's 3rd wife who looked like, acted like and presumably thought like Nancy Reagan and worked a a bookkeeper in an advertising agency (The Robert Goodman Agency, Baltimore MD) that promoted Republican political candidates, back in the 1980's. Now I see what Cher really is: a real life yassfication -- no FaceApp A.I. touch-up needed.
It was, still is, in America's beautiful and successful suburbs (DJT), a whole banal metaphysics, a Scheißestückweltanschauung. Sucrose silicone smiling faces such as hers were the structural correlate, the sublunary stars, the CELEBRITIES, which were transcendentally required to produce the entertainment products that suffused by trickle down (like the economic theory of that name in the material world) the semiotic poverty, the hollowness, of my childhood social surround, with transcendent meaning to fulfill (or at least tranquilize) my childrearers (parents, teachers, etc.) and supposedly MeToo; but the latter part didn't work.
The adolts seemed to hallucinate little heart shaped valentines above their foreheads 💗💗💗 like a boxer who has been TKO'ed "sees stars" when they saw television, movie or magazine pictures of these godlike beings who were IMPORTANT PEOPLE, who made life worth living by proxy for them, for all of us whose ontological status is to be consumers of consumer products, giving all of us mass marketing fulfillment, almost(?) like the ecstasies of Bernini's St Teresa of Avila (no wonder they presumably didn't have orgasms, just "blessed events").
Verily, Cher is a yassification for real. What a [Linda] trip!
