I’m not very old, but when I was younger, much younger than I am now, I remember feeling slightly left out and jealous of those that had Disney channel. Why? Because although my family owned a Sky box, we only had ‘the free channels’. So when the kids in my year would chat about the new Disney Film or Hannah Montana episode I would be completely out of the loop. Luckily I had youtube, so I would try to catch up and watch things on there.
Speaking of Hannah Montana, what the hell happened to Miley Cyrus!? For those that didn’t see Miley Cyrus’ performance at the VMAs this year, you are one of the few and fortunate. I heard on TV that on twitter while it was being performed it was attracting around 350,000 tweets per minute! And let me tell you, it wasn’t the good kind of attention. The performance consisted of her thrusting about provocatively using a foam finger in a sexual manner while wearing a nude coloured suit. I know she’s trying to paint a new image for herself, but she’s going about it the WRONG way. She just looked trashy and silly, not at all sexy during the performance, and judging by the looks of the audience on the night, everyone knew it but her.
This leads on to the point I’m trying to make. Although many celebrities do many ridiculous and bad things and when the media criticize them they claim that ‘they didn’t ask to be role models’. Well, here’s some surprising new…IT COMES WITH THE JOB. Every thing you do will be scrutinised and whether they want to or not many (younger) fans hear about it. This doesn’t necessarily mean these kids will go about doing drugs or whatever they’re role model(s) did or done. It may simply just mean that they lose respect for that celeb and stop following them, and to be honest, that’s just as damaging.
So, dear celebs,
Your fans are the back bone of your fame. Without them you wouldn’t be where you are now (cheesy but true.) In other words, they can start your fame but they can end it too. You have been warned.
Have Good Friday,or what’s left of it anyway…xxx
