Introduction

Celebrity culture is the mass publicity of the private lives of celebrities on a global scale. It is inherently tied to consumer interests and that celebrities turn their fame into product brands. Whereas culture is usually physically identifiable and the characteristics of that group are easily observable, celebrity culture exists only as a collection of individual desires to increase celebrity viewing. Celebrities themselves do not form a cohesive, identifiable group with which to identify themselves, but rather exist across a variety of activities and communities, including acting, politics, fashion, sports, and music. This “culture” arises when there is a social consensus that people are interested in celebrities and willing to change their lives to participate in their lives. “Culture” is first defined by factors external to the celebrity themselves and then reinforced by the celebrity's involvement in that publicly constructed culture. Celebrity culture has become part of everyday society and serves as entertainment. Today, the public plays an important role in the perpetuation of celebrity culture by keeping tabs on where celebrities and their friends are, trends in celebrity culture, and celebrities' lives in general through the media. Celebrity culture is now reflected in social norms and values ​​through extreme citizen participation. Today, as celebrity culture is used for entertainment, it is seen as a form of 'escapism' from reality and as a way to indulge in everyday people.

History

Celebrity culture in the United States began in the late 19th century with nouveau riche seeking personal publicity in contemporary social columns and magazines. While philanthropists, politicians and other celebrities were the most famous New Yorkers in the 1870s, by the 1890s the new elite had become famous for their gossip value. Film historian Richard Schickel cites the beginnings of the modern celebrity system as 1895-1920. During the 1930s and 40s, modern celebrity culture was shaped through the columns of America's "most famous gossip writer," Walter Winchell. 254

Promotion from celebrities

There have been multiple stages to the popularity of celebrity culture. Some examples include broadcasting television shows that allow humans to reach larger audiences and individuals to gain fame. As different technologies have been released, so has the behavior of viewers, greatly expanding the reach of celebrity culture. Entrepreneurial individuals began to realize the economic value of deliberately promoting specific individuals, and a consumer approach to celebrity as a brand emerged. Consumers accepted celebrities as part of society and a culture began to take shape. This acceptance, along with insightful marketing, perpetuates celebrity culture with its ever-changing conventions and beliefs. Celebrity culture can be considered synonymous with the celebrity industry, where celebrities are treated as commodities to be sold. Celebrity culture differs from consumer culture in that it is one aspect of consumer culture. Celebrity culture cannot exist without consumer culture, as people continually buy magazines, celebrity apps, and other celebrity-related merchandise. Consumer choices are therefore influenced by celebrity choices. By following celebrities, consumers are invited to participate in a collective society shaped by the existence of celebrity culture that consumers themselves unwittingly perpetuate. Participants in the celebrity culture phenomenon include celebrities themselves, recognizing that they can brand themselves and achieve financial gain through their own prestige and status apart from the celebrity pre-branding base. . "To people weary of self-government, believing in kings and queens and fairy tales seems easier and more pleasant than practicing politics," writes Louis Lafam in his book A Wish to a King. This concept underlies the relationships that naturally occur between "normal" men and women and pedestal men and women. Famous religious texts on world beliefs are full of examples of people who are well known to the general public. Some of the ancient Egyptian pharaohs began operating devices to ensure their fame for centuries to come. Celebrity culture, once confined to royalty and biblical/mythological figures, has permeated many areas of society, including business, publishing, and even academia (scibrities). As science progressed, discoveries were given names. Contributors are usually considered honorable, especially if they make significant contributions to humanity. Mass media increased the exposure and influence of celebrities. Celebrities tend to carry more social capital than ever before. Each country or cultural community (language, ethnicity, religion) has its own independent celebrity system, but due to globalization this is becoming less the case (see J-POP or K-POP).

Perpetuation of celebrity culture

According to Oliver Drysens, the social and cultural prestige of celebrities can be traced to mass media success. Various forms of mass media have spread new images and brandings of celebrities. People and celebrities in 'our home' have become more accessible, especially since the average home has a television set. The media surrounding celebrities has a huge impact not only on celebrity culture, but on the social environment in which we live in general. Celebrities are known to influence not only what we buy, but many other things, such as body image, career aspirations, and politics. Richard Dyer has said that celebrity culture is tied to the condition of global capitalism that "individuals are seen as determining society". Thanks to new technologies such as cable television and 24/7 coverage, today's celebrities are manufactured for mass consumption, as opposed to the more self-made celebrities in their 30s and 50s. became. With 24/7 coverage, more shows and more people can fill the extra time. This has evolved with more shows and celebrities joining in for additional screen time. Reality television has greatly contributed to fostering a new celebrity culture that is more interchangeable and recognizable. Cable TV and social media sites such as YouTube have become "overnight" sensations and perpetuated the perception of today's celebrity culture. :493 Celebrities like Justin Bieber, who rose to fame after being spotted on YouTube, are claimed to elicit an emotional connection. and a self-reflexiveness that evokes a seemingly personal connection. This can be seen with some fans, especially female fans, who feel a certain sense of ownership or connection to celebrities. At the same time, many popular media outlets (such as the British tabloids) have fostered a love-hate relationship between the public and celebrities, and their admiration, envy, and contempt are a constant source of celebrity news coverage. generated interest and, ironically, a cult of celebrity.

Celebrity and political culture

Celebrities and politicians have primarily interacted in one of two ways. The first is celebrity politicians, which is a cross between elected government office and celebrity. The second method is through political activism, a popular method these days that avoids direct participation in the government itself.

= Celebrity politicians =

Celebrity politicians can be divided into two categories: celebrities who go to the government and hold public office in elections, and politicians who become celebrities, but celebrities who have held public office are not uncommon. Donald Trump is one such example. A businessman and real estate dealer who licenses real estate and other brands to his name, Trump appeared on the TV show The Apprentice in 2004 and ran against then-presidential candidate Barack in the 2012 presidential election. He gained national fame for alluding to Obama. He was not a born U.S. citizen. He then successfully ran for president of the United States in 2016. Ronald Reagan is one such example. He was a career actor who appeared in 53 films over the course of 20 years. He became Governor of California in 1966 and President of the United States in 1980. Politicians can also become celebrities, either naturally or by mimicking celebrity traits. One example is the Democratic group The Squad. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Ayanna Pressley, and Rashida Talib are the four Democrats formed after the 2018 midterm elections, with Ocasio-Cortez playing with the colloquial term "". posted a picture of him sitting on Instagram. team goals. They are well known for their outspoken personalities on social media and their clashes with other politicians such as Donald Trump and Nancy Pelosi. Celebrity and political culture tend to intersect these days. This is a result of the large platform given to celebrities. As Jane Johnson, a reporter for the British celebrity publication Closer, put it, gossip surrounding celebrities is a factor that unites nations among all social groups. Hosted by celebrities, this consolidated and massive platform has become a focal point for political leaders and groups to gain additional influence in their various campaigns. Young voter turnout has historically been lower than for other voting age groups. Aware of this, politicians and celebrities leverage the cultural resources that celebrities handpick by imitating the popular and relatable public personas emanating from today's celebrities. As author Frank Freddy has pointed out, "Politicians consciously acquire celebrity images or seek to associate themselves with individuals who hold that status." He has become somewhat of a celebrity due to his good personality and perceived support for progressive and liberal policies. Another example of this is Katy Perry campaigning and performing for Hillary Clinton during the 2016 presidential election.

= Celebrities and political issues =

Celebrities have used their actions to highlight political issues. Jane Fonda has tried to raise awareness of climate change by being arrested for civil disobedience. The rise of social media has allowed celebrities to voice their opinions on controversial topics and get immediate feedback from their fans. Some celebrities endorse political candidates, such as Dave Chappelle endorsing 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang, and some celebrities use their positions in this way. I'm refraining from doing that. Michael Jordan is said to have said, "Republicans buy sneakers." When turning down politicians seeking support.

= Celebrity Disillusionment =

Celebrity status is widely sought after by many, but celebrities are often unhappy with their status. Overall, there is a general correlation between success and unhappiness. A 2008 study found that CEOs are more than twice as likely to be depressed as the general population, suggesting this isn't just a celebrity phenomenon. Studies show that people tend to place more emphasis on objective success (i.e. status, wealth, reputation) than on subjective success (i.e. self-esteem, relationships, moral introspection) as benchmarks of success. , suggesting that they become disillusioned with social success as a result. they are successful. But celebrities in particular face certain situations that make them frustrated with their success. Paparazzi is often a problem for celebrities, especially in the digital age through social and mass media, who are increasingly being objectified and worshiped by their fans (see: "Celebrity Worship Syndrome"). This is because the constant exposure and press coverage of these figures makes people feel that celebrities are their social kin and want to admire, gossip, and imitate their customs. Because it makes you think. A 2009 study that interviewed many celebrities anonymously revealed common sentiments that excessive paparazzi causes loss of privacy, lack of anonymity, and a feeling of constant surveillance. For this, they end up compensating by forming separate identities. One is the image provided to the public and the other is reserved for privacy and intimate moments. Another issue is celebrity marriages. Studies suggest that child celebrities have poor mental health as adults and often resort to substance abuse. In Hollywood, the superficial culture in which celebrity status is ranked by an "A-list" or "B-list" hierarchy also contributes to celebrity disillusionment with success. Sometimes people who achieve celebrity status come to regret it. Feld's Bert Spring, for example, came to loathe the reality show celebrity culture instigated by the world's first winner, Big Brother.

= Celebrity gossip =

Celebrity gossip has become an integral part of American culture, serving not only as a form of entertainment but also as a form of social engagement and social order. Gossip allows people to connect and interact with each other, bringing a sense of community within society. People can affirm their values ​​and beliefs through gossip, by hearing about celebrity struggles through tabloids and other media. Information provided to people for consumption and discussion enables civic participation on a global scale, as there is material to talk to others, commonly known through gossip.

= Vehicles =

In the United States, celebrity culture is reinforced by television talk shows such as Entertainment Tonight, where actors and music stars promote their latest movies and albums, and many celebrity magazines such as People, Us, and Star. created and disseminated. Another phenomenon is the emergence and rise of "micro-celebrities" through the WWW (internet celebrities).

Social media

Celebrity culture is a growing and ever-changing topic as technology advances. Various platforms such as Instagram, Snapchat and Facebook are being introduced, all of which offer new avenues for celebrities to express their thoughts. Twitter is constantly changing the way we look at celebrities, providing a space where opinions can be shared without scrutiny or filters. It provides a platform for celebrities to re-share ideas and share their own ideas safely. It also allows people to comment, which makes it more engaging for your fans and followers. Instagram is also growing and remains a popular vehicle for celebrities purely as a way to post photos. Many of these photos also feature other celebrities to enhance their image and reach different fan bases. Finally, Facebook is still a popular platform used by many celebrities, especially older people. Many older generations prefer Facebook because it's easy to navigate and allows them to share and write posts that are important to them.

= Twitter =

Twitter has allowed us to interact with people more frequently, increasing our intimacy and cultural awareness. Twitter users can now interact directly with celebrities in anticipation of public reaction.

= Instagram =

Through Instagram's unique format, a new layer of celebrity culture was added, allowing celebrities to further intimacy with their followers by sharing selected photos and videos with their audience. Every time celebrities add a platform to promote themselves, it creates a broader perspective and raises cultural awareness. Instagram also recently changed its layout to attract celebrity attention. They use an algorithm to determine which photos are at the top of a user's feed and which are at the bottom and harder to find. Celebrity trends found on Instagram have tremendous cultural impact as it is a platform that allows people to see and imitate celebrities through their clothing, speech and humor, indirectly engaging with celebrity culture. . Today, Instagram can be used as a platform for marketing as celebrities can receive huge rewards for listing their products and using them in their posts.

= YouTube =

These days, YouTube also plays a big role in the growth of social media. The site features a new celebrity group: YouTube influencers, aka YouTubers. These influencers may post videos about their daily lives in various genres such as vlogging, beauty, playing video games, etc. They have become very popular in recent years as viewers see them as more relatable than movie stars and other celebrity groups. Fans can form strong bonds with these influencers as they are exposed to highly personal videos.

Tantrums

Some celebrities have been known to "throw tantrums" to get their way. They've also been known to get into arguments with friends who are also famous to spice up the drama and make a name for themselves. When an individual is in the public eye, their actions and behavior change. Usually it encourages people to take extreme actions, whether it's a very good thing or a very bad thing. Most of the time, it's just celebrities who go against social norms and do something different. People are more interested in reading about celebrities doing something crazy than going out and eating lunch with respect.

Complaints

A common frustration in contemporary celebrity culture is that the public does not want celebrities for virtue or talent, but for those who are most willing to break ethical boundaries or who are most willing to promote themselves. is. In other words, notoriety gave way to fame. The social roles of town drunkards, court jesters, and sexually indiscreet people are nothing new, but arguably, the admiration of these individuals is new. Society chooses the most notorious celebrities who have provided the most entertainment and news.

= Explanations =

One possible explanation for this trend is that artificial significance was created to promote products and services rather than recording purely biographical events. The need for more celebrities has become an industry of its own as more and more new products are launched in an ever-expanding global marketplace. Another explanation used by Chuck Palahniuk is that modern celebrity culture's exaggeration was born out of a need for drama and spectacle. In his book Haunted, he describes the pattern of making celebrities as godlike figures and the desire to destroy that image, and to humiliate the individual in the most extreme ways possible. It is described as being born Tabloid magazines are a prototypical example of this theory.

Posthumous fame

Some creators, such as poets, artists, musicians, and inventors, were largely unknown and unappreciated during their lifetimes, but are celebrated posthumously as great innovators. Alan Abel, Adam Rich and Pauly Shore may have been motivated to stage their deaths by their desire to achieve this kind of posthumous fame. In some cases, the contributions of these lesser-known figures become more widely known after historians clarify the creator's role in the development of a cultural or technological process. In some cases, false obituary references can cause people to reconsider their legacy. Alfred Nobel founded the Nobel Prize after an obituary falsely labeled him a "merchant of death" for his invention and sale of dynamite. People who became far more famous after death than during life (and often wholly or relatively unknown) include the painter Bob Ross. Greek philosopher Socrates. Scientist Galileo Galilei. Romantic poet John Keats. Painter Vincent van Gogh. Poet and novelist Edgar Allan Poe. Singers Eva Cassidy and Nick Drake. Comedian Bill Hicks. Author Emily Dickinson. Artist Edith Holden's 1906 diary was published posthumously in 1977 and became a bestseller. Author Franz Kafka. Singer Jeff Buckley. Diary writer Anne Frank. Philosopher Soren Kierkegaard. Author John Kennedy Toole (winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction 12 years after his death). Writer Stieg Larsson (who died unpublished the Millennium Novel). Musician, artist and poet Roz Williams. and William Webb Ellis, the inventor of rugby football. The Greek youth Herostratus set fire to the Temple of Artemis (one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World) in 356 BC to immortalize his name. Authorities at the time tried to erase him from history and put people to death for merely mentioning his name, but as his name is still well known today, he had an enduring reputation. succeeded in obtaining
