As prominent leaders of the digital sphere, the value of the celebrity voice as a vehicle for political endorsement is rising. It is not the idea of celebrity endorsement that is new but the platforms and the reach that they afford has expanded. Wheeler (2012) has described this shift as the ‘interlinkage between political rhetoric and behaviour’ as ‘part of a historical continuum which offsets the modernist dismay directed to the

“My goal is around 100,000 hits on an article,” Ruoff states. According to him, Justin receives a flat rate of pay but earns more money if his articles gain more views. “If I don’t try to promote an article, but it was about a recent game, I can get around 30,000 hits.

1.In the piece of writing by Jessica Statsky, she writes about children 's sports and how they should not be competitive. In making this claim she uses certain evidence to make her point valid. In one of her pieces of evidence she uses states that, "That a twelve-year-old trying to throw a curve ball, for example, may put abnormal strain on developing arm and shoulder muscles, sometimes resulting in lifelong injuries: (Statsky, 350). From this evidence Statsky is trying to make the claim that sports are hurting children and could put a risk on their bodies and the development of their bodies, if they put too much strain on themselves. Another piece of information Stasky uses says, "The kids get so scared. They get hit once and they don 't wont anything to do with football anymore. They 'll sit on the bench and pretend their leg hurts" (Stasky, 350). In the evidence that Stasky uses is good, but it is not very ordinary situations that occur. She also does not provide any personal experience to go along with her writing. Which in the end, would make the paper sound better and let the audience know that she has her own experiences with playing sports at a young age.
Her nickname is Sunshine All humans with work and perseverance can choose their own path of life. Indeed, there are more difficult events to overcome for some. Being a celebrity seems like a dream but if you really think about it, what is the celebrity reality life like? I guess, it is an extraordinary feeling to have the audience scream your name and admire you, but what about their personal life being exposed by social media with no consent? We now have access to information whenever we want to, this has caused an impact for celebrities who are starting their career or end up destroying their lives because of negative comments, substance abuse, and loss of believe in themselves. “While most Americans don’t have a media horde following them every time they set foot outside the house — and possibly even photographers crawling through the bushes when they’re home — celebrities’ privacy is being eclipsed by the same technologies that are eating away at everyone’s ability to be left alone: long-lens
I have read through five articles of celebrity gossip on blogger, Perez Hilton’s website. Some of the articles were older and I also read the up to date gossip. In my opinion, the function of celebrity gossip in today’s society is to help the fame of any celebrity. The purpose of the negative or positive information is only going to help or hurt the celebrity and in some cases, such as Janet Jackson’s breast being reviled at the Super Bowl, helped her more than it hurt her. As for blogs about celebrities helping maintain stability and order in our society, I believe that it serves no purpose and also create false perceptions of the real world. Today’s youth can easily be influenced by the celebrity gossip. The media and blogs create a distortion
The New Mrs. Tesman was an assortment of diverse artistic choices made by the director, Mikell Pinkey. A known story, Hedda Gabbler, was taken and re-imagined into the show that I received the chance to see. With a new story, the next step was to find the right cast and design the right set, along with amazing costumes. I feel as if every risk Pinkney took paid off in the big picture. Director Pinkney made choices in casting, blocking, and stage pictures that were effective and worked well for this production.
After revisiting Connor’s Instagram, I notice that he attempts to sell other Instagram users his sense of self, his brand. Across all social media platforms users’ are wanting to advertise the prepackaged and marketable self/identity to other users(Deresiewicz). This observation holds true when looking Connor’s IG profile. Connor’s IG persona is a special case because he constructs his persona in a way that leaves his followers wanting more. Even though Connor frequently posts on IG he has this secrecy about him that makes his followers question which character is the true him. For example, he will post selfies of himself in Japan one day racing cars, New York the next at a fashion show and France on the weekend riding in a boat. All without posting a
Over the course of the semester, my classmates and I have been following Chris Park and his Instagram closely. Since then, I feel like Chris is now someone on my following list whom I see on a daily basis uploading something new. Chris, definitely makes his presence known on Instagram.
“The flip side of Internet Fame” is an essay written by Jessica Bennett. In this essay, Jessica Bennett talks about our modern culture and the effects of public shaming. She starts the essay by using “Star Boy” as an example. She then states, “Among the generation that’s been reared online, stories like this are becoming more common” (Bennett 90). As a person who uses technology in everyday life, I can strongly agree that public shaming is becoming a big issue. Some people might see it as entertainment, but the victims of public shaming see it as humiliation and harassment. Public shaming can spread through many ways, such as the use of technology, online videos and certain websites.
back of my closet. And so, of course, when I wanted to cosplay Urahara Kisuke from Bleach, i desperately needed another person to play as Yoruichi Shihoin. I went everywhere to find my Yoruichi since none of my friends knew of what I did in my past time. I posted pictures about it on my Instagram, Twitter, Tumblr(Before i became a well known cosplayer) and even Kik. No one replied. I was hopeless. Until one day, surprisingly, a random girl named Ymir replied to me saying that she 's planning on cosplaying as Yoruichi and that If i was cool enough I could be her Urahara. And from that day on, she 's been my cosplay buddy, (or just buddy in general) even if she lives thousands of miles away from me. That was until a few months ago. She told me how her good friend made it big time and that she had no time to cosplay anymore since she was busy helping him while he was on his tour. The tv interrupts me from my thinking when i hear the interviewers annoying voice screech.
