My project asks are celebrities are toxic to society.
My three rounds of research will look like this:
1.Difference between having fame and being a celebrity.
This will help me answer my question because I can distinguish the role of a celebrity vs. someone who got attention for certain talent. It’s important to know because I need to know if celebrities come to be artificially or if it is a natural process.
2. Celebrity impacts (positive and negative) on people and themselves.
This will help me answer my question because I need to know if the bad outweighs the good for both groups. If it truly is a harmless part of our world, the negatives wouldn’t be prominent. If they are, I know there’s an issue.
3. What would the world look like without celebrities?
This will help me answer my question because if I can put together what the world would look like without celebrities, I can see if it works out well or if people need to look up to others in the media to build themselves.
This question will have implications for other individuals and my community because they get to see how celebrity culture is impacting them in ways they don’t usually think about. I hope that this research can burst the bubble of perfection that celebrities usually get from the public eye. The root of celebrity culture is profit. Brands can get celebrities to endorse products because they are seen as trustworthy to people. I want others to see that money plays a big role in all of this.
