In a 1956 Daily Mirror column--penned by "Cassandra" (a.k.a. Sir William Neil Connor)--Wladziu Valentino Liberace (a.k.a. Liberace) received the following, near libelous string of pearls:

"...the summit of sex--the pinnacle of masculine, feminine, and neuter. Everything that he, she, and it can ever want...a deadly, winking, sniggering, snuggling, chromium-plated, scent-impregnated, luminous, quivering, giggling, fruit-flavoured, mincing, ice-covered heap of mother love."

Having turned 25 back on August 3, Gangnam-style violinist Hahn-Bin Yoo (a.k.a. Mx Amadéus Leopold) has come a long, strange way since RSVP-ing to Itzhak Perlman's invite to the Juilliard. Withdrawing from Juilliard's baccalaureate in 2009--to focus on his recital career, the late Lou Reed included--the similarities have since been uncanny.
