Celebrity Culture (Introducing Issues with Opposing Viewpoints) (Paperback)
We have entered a time when celebrities are so valued that they are more respected and powerful than anyone else. It began with movie and sports stars, but as a result of the preponderance of reality shows that change nobodies into stars with immense clout, celebrity has been democratized. YouTube stars and Instagram influencers are the latest to rise to celebrity status, and they have more power than many of us know. This curation of perspectives explores the advantages to celebrity, how advances in media technology have impacted fame, and the dangers inherent in a rising celebrity culture.
