“Celebrities in the 21st century have great power to communicate and disseminate such mundane events, such as how an entertainer is spending his or her weekend, where he or she is dining and what he or she is drinking. This type of traditional ‘‘whispering’’ about the lives of celebrities, in turn is done continuously and globally in the 21st century, through the global internet. One of the first television programmes that depicted the value and advantages of being famous, was the television show, Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous.”
This article, “Ethics of Celebrities and Their Increasing Influence in 21st Century Society”, correlates a lot more with my actual topic. This nugget was something that particularly caught my eye. Basically, Hannah Hart is famous for being famous. She can do these simple, mundane things, and have such a large audience. It also goes a little bit with the article I used in my last post. She’s pretty, she’s funny, and she’s famous. That’s why she has a job and has thousands of people watching her do this simple thing: cooking and drinking.
