The Impact of Celebrities and the Media on Society
Music has been around for quite some time, and it appears to will be around forever. It has captured the minds and souls of many people, from all the different races and cultures. People nowadays, in particular teenagers, are obsessed with music and the music world. They go as far as idolizing their favorite artist or artists. They walk like them, they talk like them, and they even dress like them. Obsessions such as these, in particular the dressing like these artists, aren't bad, but they do have consequences, which people fail to realize.
Lately, artists have been associated with a wide range of different dressing styles. From Marilyn Manson, in his eccentric leather outfits, to Jay-Z, in his basketball jerseys and baggy-pants. These styles appeal to many people, who in turn try to dress like these artists. We then have people walking around with baggy pants, the waists of the pants all the way to their knees, and basketball jerseys. You may also see many teens, as well as adults, wearing baseball caps backward or to one side; yet another style of dressing related to some artists. If you're lucky you might see a "Brittany Spears" walk by the corner! That's right, the styles don't just apply to men. Women and teenage girls have also taken up this artist fashion frenzy. Teenage girls pay homage to their favorite female artist by dressing like them exactly like them. Take for instance, the millions of young girls, and women who try to imitate Pop legend Madonna. Some even go as far as getting contact lenses to match Madonna's eyes. They even fix their hair like her. Could you imagine seeing teens walking the streets like rock superstar Marilyn Manson? Just the thought brings chills to my back.
