Celebrity Mashups

John Musser, May 8th, 2006

CelebFavoritesWhere does Anna Kournikova go shopping in Miami? What are Alex Rodriguez’s favorite NYC hotels? You can now get the answers to these and other pressing questions at CelebFavorites.com, a new celebrity+maps mashup from Microsoft.

Created as a promotional vehicle for Windows Live Local it includes restaurant, hotel, shopping and cultural recommendations from 8 celebs. Others include Brittany Murhpy, Eva Longoria and Jeff Bridges.

As the Washington Post points-out: “Marketing executives inside some of the biggest technology companies can tell you that a tech gadget or service is not really “cool” until a celebrity is using and promoting it.”

This joins the list of previous media-focused mashups such as those you can see at /tag/movies, /tag/television, and /tag/video.
