My inquiry question is “Are celebrities toxic for society”.
This question is interesting to me because I want to explore why we need to have idols. I also want to look into how celebrities set beauty standards. I even want to look at if having celebrities in our society is bad for the celebrities themselves. I understand that if someone creates something they become famous, but there is a difference between fame and being a celebrity. Having fame means all kinds of people know you. To be a celebrity, you are not only known for the thing that made you famous. You are grown into a celebrity by going to events, hosting meetings with fans, completing interviews, etc. I find it weird that we have models of what we should be. I think there is a possibility that having celebrities, decreases our individuality. It’s not like we need to learn right from wrong from celebrities. Those concepts are taught by families and philosophers. I think it’s interesting to explore the effects of modern celebrities, positive and negative, to answer my question.
