The Good about celebrity
In a fantasy world we’d be motivated purely by the
love of justice and our generosity. But most of us are
not like that. We need a lot of encouragement – a lot
of persuasion – before we direct or thoughts and
money and effort, to distant strangers. Therefore
celebrity culture is a good things as we watch
celebrities help people we feel the need to idolize
(copy) them and do the same. Without celebrity
culture the majority of people wouldn’t feel like they
needed to help people.
The bad about celebrity
• Celebrities are role models for many, but mostly
the younger generation. Celebrities breaking laws
and having public scandals are at an all time high
which affects how young people think and what
they think is right and wrong. An example of this is
pop star Justin Beiber who was arrested for
hitting a paparazzi. The star has a huge fan base
around the world and who mostly consist of
young girls. If they see there role model hit a
paparazzi, what's to stop them thinking its okay to
do the same.
