    Celebrity Influence

    Not only do media outlets portray celebrities to young people, but electronics play a part as well; music being the key factor. Music that a celebrity creates also influences a teen’s behavior. If one were to listen to an artist whose music is full of profanity and vulgar language, more than likely that teen will follow what that artist is promoting. For example, a lot of young girls today look up to the musician Nicki Minaj; some even think of her as the hip hop version of Lady Gaga, another well known teen idol. If the teens that look up to her as a role model were to hear one of her songs full of sexually explicit lyrics, then that young girl would think that its okay to do those acts because she wants to be just like her. Artists use music as a portal to reach out to their fans, but what they fail to realize is that some of those fans take their lyrics to the heart. In some of their music, they even talk about how they prefer their women or men to be a certain skin complexion, wear certain labels, or even be a certain size. Just by hearing these preferences, some teens may feel as if they aren’t good enough so they may attempt to change themselves to feel as if they meet their favorite celebrities’ standards. One study reports that at age thirteen, 53% of American girls are "unhappy with their bodies." This…

    I think that the entertainment industry has a bad influence on the youth today. A lot of our youth consider too many "celebrities" as the role model and would do just about anything they do just to be like them. I am not going to sit here and say that all celebrities have bad intentions and do not care how our youth look at them. I do think that it sends a message that drugs are normal and acceptable because some celebrities brag about doing drugs and drinking alcohol like it is ok. "Celebrity…

Just because they have talent does not mean everyone should give them attention and care about them. Celebrities are not god figures, they are not as important as middle and lower class, and…

    The number of celebrities known by people is greater than before, and despite the lack of physical interaction between the stars and their audiences, the strong emotional connection that audiences feel for the celebrities endures (De Backer, 2012). This emotional connection is what Horton and Wohl (1956; as cited in Theran, Newberg & Gleason, 2010) called as a parasocial interaction, or the one-sided quasi-interaction between an audience and a celebrity. This phenomenon of attachment to media…
