Pop Glitz is a pop culture publication both informative on the latest in celebrity news and politics to its unrelenting snark from owner JaVonni Brustow, better known as The Media Mogul. The site began following years of JaVonni writing for and managing multiple pop culture publications, watching the owners lose interest and walk away from their work, thus inspiring the birth of Pop Glitz in 2012. Topics can range from the latest Beyonce record to red carpet at the Grammy’s to our take on the state of the industry. This site is owned by a former assistant choir director for a mega church, concert producer and political commentator, so real talent and the ability to sing is greatly valued here. Also JaVonni is a strong believer in capitalism so talent be damned, if it makes an artist money, by law of supply and demand, we are all for it. As long as there is a group of people interested in their product, we are not far behind to cover it.
Pop Glitz is a brand extension of VM3 Media, a Washington, DC based media and communications consulting firm with a decade of event planning, show production, promotion and copywriting.
Founder and Principal: JaVonni Brustow
JaVonni Brustow is a Communications and Media Consultant with a decade of experience in event production, news editing and administering best practices in business management. JaVonni gained his musical background as an assistant choir director for a Washington area mega church, going on to become a concert producer for DC Gospel Events, brokering relationships with many gospel artists in the Washington metropolitan area. He later joined forces with PR professional Bryan Sharpe for the now defunct celebrity news site DefGlam, aiding in the expansion and management along with Ms Stylistik among others.
Coming from a family of business owners in the commercial transportation, contracting and real estate arenas, JaVonni was raised with an entrepreneurial spirit. Starting his career with Steptoe & Johnson and working over the years for a national union and in global poverty relief he’s learned policy for both the working American and those who need help and direction the most around the world.
As friends of JaVonni’s began running for office while working in mental health for the District of Columbia, he began to take time to learn inclusive urban development that would allow all to take part in a changing city landscape. Championing his hard work ethic over the years, sharing resources that would allow others to do the same, it was at this time JaVonni began promoting the message of capitalism through community outreach. He has done commentary on BBC World Service Radio, Breitbart Sirius XM Radio, Breitbart Podcasts and Washington DC’s Fox 5. JaVonni can be heard on Sonnie Johnson’s Did She Say That podcast available on Soundcloud.
JaVonni has grown to become a trusted name both in business and community advocacy in Washington with his media and communications company VM3 Media managing the celebrity news site Pop Glitz, so much so that in 2018 he moved to Petersburg, VA to aide in restarting the city’s Republican committee working on issues ranging from school choice to municipal reform and smart city technology.
