Reality TV and the Rise of the ‘Celebrity’

Reality TV and the Rise of the ‘Celebrity’ | By Carmella De Lucia

The other day I was browsing the shelves of one of my favourite bookstores – Waterstones, when I came across a new story, recently out in paperback style.
The title screamed: ‘Chantelle – Living the Dream’.
I stood for a few seconds, literally quite dumbfounded by what I was seeing. Sadly, despite the fact that I had never watched a single episode of the so-called ‘Celebrity Big Brother’, I still knew exactly who this Chantelle was and how she had rose to sudden public notoriety. I knew that she had simply been put in a house alongside exceedingly minor ‘celebrities’ and pretended that she was a star.

Fortunately for the girl, it was the best move she had ever made, as less than twelve months later, here I was stood in Waterstones holding the autobiography of her short, yet albeit adventurous life.

The vast influx of reality TV shows on our screens, such as ‘Big Brother’, ‘X Factor’ and the dastardly ‘Love Island’ have ensured that television ratings soar every year. Viewers are able to witness and take pleasure in the laughter, tears, tantrums and the humiliations of ordinary people like you and me, or ‘celebrities’ who are looking to give their flailing career a significant boost.
Programmes such as these just serve to bore me beyond belief personally, and I long for the days of ‘real TV’, if indeed, such a thing exists. The days when gritty television dramas with clever, well written scripts were enough to satisfy viewers are truly gone, for Reality TV continues to grow exponentially every single year.

This fact evokes odd feelings in me. I feel a little sad, bemused- even a bit of despair when I think of what our society has become in the past few years.
It is not so much the shows themselves that I despise. In fact, despite the sheer banality of them generally, sometimes, (on the very odd occasion, mind) I have been known to find the odd clip of a reality TV show mildly entertaining. But I mean, who wouldn’t want to watch someone chomping their way through a kangaroo’s anus in the middle of a jungle – celebrity or no celebrity?

No, what I find so depressing, is the way in which society now comes to celebrate and even worship normal, exceedingly dull, everyday people, as supposed ‘celebrities’. I may be behind with the times, but I thought that in order to become a celebrity, you were required to ‘do’ something in order to become famous; you know- be in a pop band, write your own songs, act in a film.
Apparently, all we now need to do in order to get our autobiography on the shelves and have OK! Magazine camped outside our front door, is sit in a house doing nothing, but being watched by millions of viewers across the country. Therefore, despite having no discernable talent to speak of, likes of ‘Nikki Grahame’ and ‘Jade Goody’ simply went into the Big Brother house as regular people, and came out of it as the UK’s most sought after ‘celebrities’.

Now, that doesn’t seem very fair to all those real celebrities who work hard at their professions to get their name into the papers everyday, does it?
I may be in the minority here, but I have tried and failed miserably to see the appeal of watching twelve people sat aimlessly in a house, bickering and cat fighting for weeks on end. Unlike almost everyone else in the country, I have been unsuccessful in finding the show as wildly exciting as others do.

So what is it that draws everybody to shows like these then? Is it that the people who take part are thrust into the show exposing themselves warts and all, with no script to follow – therefore anything could happen? Or is it that reality TV ‘thrives on love, hate, revenge, ambition and jealousy’ – all powerful attributes, says America TV critic Dylan Swizzler, that inspired Shakespeare’s best tragedies.

Who knows? But what we can safely say for sure, is that reality TV programmes and society’s insistent celebration of their participants, is far from over.

These shows just keep on coming, and sadly for those of us that loathe it, there’s not a thing we can do about it.

Cocaine Use by College Students and Celebrities

Cocaine Use by College Students and Celebrities | By Dennis Soinski

Cocaine Use Increases

An article entitled “Cocaine Epidemic Feared As Cocaine Deaths Nearly Double In Florida Over Past 5 Years” was featured on the “Medical News Today” website on October 21, 2006. Not surprisingly, the information contained in this article was quite disconcerting. For instance, one of the key points in the article was that cocaine use is on the rise among college students with disposable income and also among high-profile celebrities. Perhaps of more importance, however, are two facts that are associated with the escalation in cocaine use: the increased cocaine-related emergency room visits and the rising cocaine-related fatalities. In fact, according to Florida drug authorities, cocaine-related deaths in Florida have almost doubled from 2000 to 2005.

The largest-selling young women's magazine in the world, Cosmopolitan is famous for its upbeat style, focus on the young career woman and candid discussion of contemporary male/female relationships. Since its founding in 1886, Cosmopolitan has been reporting on modern social trends.



Why People Use Cocaine

Why do various individuals use cocaine? Cocaine gives a person a feeling of euphoria, energy, and at times, an unbelievable, almost superhuman sense of control and mastery. For instance, some people who have taken cocaine have been known to leap out of windows or off rooftops, thinking that they could fly or that they could jump dozens of feet without getting injured. There is, however, a physiological reason why people continue to use cocaine after their first encounter. Cocaine exhausts the “feel-good” neurotransmitter dopamine, thus causing a need for even more use. In short, and from a physiological perspective, cocaine use perpetuates more cocaine use.

Fatalities and Cocaine Use

To gain a better understanding of the ultimate danger inherent in cocaine use, namely death, one needs to focus on the timeframe regarding its life-threatening effects. To accomplish this, cocaine use will be compared with prescription drug abuse.

The abuse of prescription drugs such as Oxycontin, Vicodin, and Adderall can trigger abrupt cardiac or respiratory arrest at the time of abuse. Thus the critical and fatal timeframe when abusing prescription drugs is mostly “short-term.” Conversely, due to the snowballing effects of cocaine, especially regarding the blood vessel damage that increases the risk of stroke or heart attack as a person ages, users can suddenly die years after their cocaine abuse started. Therefore, the critical and fatal timeframe for cocaine use, unlike the same measure for prescription drug abuse, is typically “long term.”

Why the Rise in Cocaine Use?

Why is cocaine use increasing? One of the reasons is that celebrities who are addicted to cocaine have become “walking cocaine advertisements” and, as a result, have been able to adversely influence others, such as students, who have access to relatively large amounts of disposable income.

The Need For Intervention and Education

Home Theater is the largest monthly magazine exclusively dedicated to the home theater market, covering the latest in audio, video, surround sound, movies and music. Each issue contains system reviews, product comparisons, DVD software reviews, technical updates, and opinion pieces by the industry's most knowledgeable editors and writers.



Florida drug experts stress that additional drug education and intervention need to take place in schools, colleges, and in local communities nationwide to help prevent a full-blown cocaine epidemic. I agree, but to be effective, I assert that the intervention and educational strategy has to include facts that challenge the lifestyles of the cocaine-using celebrities. Let me explain. Students need to be aware that they are observing a “snapshot in time” that does not reveal “the rest of the story” as Paul Harvey would say. Stated differently, college students who are impressed by cocaine-using high rollers need to learn how to see through the VIPs’ facade and realize that they are getting “sold” faulty goods by the cocaine-using rich and famous.

Many celebrities are at or approaching middle age. As a result, most, if not all, of the high-profile chronic cocaine have learned first-hand about the consequences of their drug-related lifestyles. On the other hand, most “traditional” college students are either teenagers or very young adults. Due to the cumulative effects of cocaine use, however, college students who continue to use cocaine are essentially playing Russian roulette with their near and long-term future.

The Rest of the Story

College students must be made aware of the fact that the cocaine-using celebrities that they are impressed with are really loose cannons that may explode into oblivion at any time because of their drug-related lifestyles. This “ultimate” and fatal consequence, however, does not tell the whole story. Indeed, the “rest of the story” also focuses on both the short-term and the long-term health consequences of cocaine use.

Short and Long-Term Effects of Cocaine Use

What the impressionable students have not seen are the friends of celebrities who have died from cocaine-related cardiac arrest, seizures, strokes, and respiratory failure. In addition, the vulnerable students have not been told about the “coke crash” that certainly has left some of the rich and famous depressed, irritable, and fatigued.

Not only this, but the easily influenced students have not been informed about the loss of smell, problems with swallowing, and the nosebleeds experienced by some of the rich and famous who got their cocaine “buzz” via snorting. Moreover, the “receptive” students have not been notified about the bizarre, unpredictable, and at times violent behavior of many high rollers who took increasingly larger doses of cocaine in order to experience the desired high.

Additionally, the suggestible students were not informed about the abdominal pain and nausea experienced by some of the cocaine-using celebrities. In a similar manner, the impressionable students were not told about the paranoid psychosis and auditory hallucinations experienced by various VIPs who experimented with binge cocaine use, i.e., taking more frequent AND higher doses of the drug at the same time.

Moreover, the vulnerable students were not told about the fever, convulsions, blurred vision, muscle spasms, and comas experienced by some of the cocaine-using VIPs or by some of their friends who “party” with them. Similarly, the impressionable students were not told about the major weight loss, malnourishment, and loss of appetite experienced by numerous celebrities who have been chronic cocaine users. And finally, the susceptible students were not informed about the severe chest pains, coughing, shortness of breath, and bleeding in the lungs experienced by some of the celebrities who got their cocaine “buzz” via smoking.

Conclusion

College students need to become knowledgeable of the immediate and the long-term health problems that virtually all chronic cocaine users, even celebrities, eventually experience. In addition, they need to become aware of their vulnerability to cocaine use due to the fact that, statistically speaking, the 18 to 25-year-old age group currently has the highest rate of cocaine use compared to other age groups. Until college students can “see” the contradictions and damaging effects inherent in the questionable lifestyles of cocaine-using VIPs, however, some of them will continue to follow the destructive paths of the high-profile cocaine-using celebrities.

Celebrity Gossip Phenomenon

Celebrity Gossip Phenomenon | By Nick Cristey

Celebrities are everywhere and they have taken over today’s mass media. They appear on the renowned tabloids and there is even a large variety of celebrity magazines.

People know more about Paris Hilton, than they do about President Bush. Celebrities always appear in the news for a variety of reasons. Some of them get drunk and make a fool of themselves, or others may even be divorcing or doing things which we would classify as out of ordinary. However, whatever they are doing, we are all turned to watch and pay careful attention to the celebrity gossip. You may ask yourself, what makes the celebrities so special that people are entertained hearing about them?

If celebrities have marriage problems, what makes hearing about them more interesting that your friends’ or your neighbours’ divorce? I’m sure you would not be interested in hearing about that. Is it because they are more famous, have more money and therefore hearing about their problems is more important? Do you feel that hearing about them makes a difference? Whatever this phenomenon is, the celebrity gossip business is kept alive due to people’s curiosities.

As Oscar Wilde once said: “The public have an insatiable curiosity to know everything, except what is worth knowing”. Would you say that the public spends too many hours a day learning about what celebrities do with zero results? You and thousands of other people may say it’s for entertaining purposes and the majority would agree. Why else would this business be worth millions of dollars ($)?

In conclusion, there are millions of websites, magazines and tabloids out there busy learning about latest celebrity gossip and lifestyle. Some philosophists agree that the mass media has gone out of hands but there’s nothing we can do at the present state. It is all happening due to people’s preferences. The readers are what continuously feed this madness of celebrity news and gossips so it’s all owed to them.

Celebrity Gossip and Dirt

Celebrity Gossip and Dirt | By Ian Pennington

Celebrity gossip has become a cottage industry in the media, especially after the advent of internet. There are a number of dedicated websites, which provide content on the love life of celebrities, usually with enthralling text and revealing content. A mere Google search on Paris Hilton or Maria Sharappova would lead you to a galaxy of websites, some of which may contain even porn content. That these websites and tabloids in print media, most of which survive by telling the readers the love affairs and idiosyncrasies of various celebrities, generate a considerable amount of revenue tells us that there are people who crave for this kind of news. “Sex sells” is an old saying; but it seems to be relevant in all ages.

Generally, people are curious to know more and more details about celebrities. Since they always remain in public glare, it is inevitable that the life of a celebrity is almost like an open book. There is no room for secrecy, and people always read between the lines. As far as media is concerned, it is easier to get news and images about celebrities than getting hard facts. Moreover, one can reasonably assume that the news and image will get noticed. Sometimes the celebrities themselves cleverly plant certain news about themselves in the media, which they think would fetch them some benefits. Some of the people, especially fans, who read this kind of stuff feel somewhat “empowered” after knowing a great deal about the private life of a celebrity. So celebrity gossip is definitely going to continue in the media, despite the criticism from some quarters. One cannot withdraw a selling commodity from the market.

The downsides of this kind of cheap celebrity gossip are many. Most important thing is that it affects the basic right of privacy of a person. Not all celebrities enjoy the kind of public and media attention bestowed on them. Sometimes, the intensity of the media glare breaks down the celebrity.

Also, there have been rumors published in the media, which caused divorce in many celebrity marriages and resulted in breaking up of many long-lasting relationships. The case of Princes Diana is an example of such harassment by the media. The rigorous pursuit of Paparazzi photographers can be attributed as one of the causes of her death in an accident that occurred while fleeing from Paparazzi. Another more devilish tendency is taking photographs and video of the celebrities without their permission and sometimes without their knowledge. Most of the photographs are taken from cute angles to improve the glamour quotient. A more dangerous trend is digitally morphing the image of the celebrity to some sexually explicit content. Media also turn a blind eye on ethics while publishing unverified reports about a celebrity because they know that most of the readers are interested in celebrity gossip however dirty it is.

Celebrity Obsession?

Celebrity Obsession? | By Eugene Brenner

Americans, and indeed many people around the world, are hooked on celebrity news and gossip. Our media centered world feeds this obsession. By all accounts, this Hollywood star worship continues to grow.

We can discern three reasons for this phenomenon:

1) Identity— Here an individual identifies with a particular celebrity. This is the image and personality he or she would like to be in the imagination. Even the meek and downtrodden can dream of being Bruce Willis or Sylvester Stallone defeating the bad guys in high style. How many coming of age baby boomers wished they were Elvis, a Beatle–or Ann Margaret?

2) Diversion— Psychologists know that a depressed individual will become less so when he or she can focus on some outer experience, any neutral or pleasant experience that breaks the obsession with self. Although most celebrity seekers are not depressed, this plays into the celebrity centered life. It’s pleasurable for the individual to see images of very attractive and well known stars and it’s a break from day-to-day routine activities.

3) Esteem Build-Up— We’ve all done it even if we know it’s not our best moment. We feel momentarily good about a celebrity’s messy and very public life, especially for a multi million dollar earner with many adoring fans. These public humiliations make us feel that perhaps our lives are more successful than we take credit for. We may not make millions of dollars or appear on the big screen, but at least most of us have not engaged in drunken brawls, entered luxury re-hab for the fourth time or driven a car with a baby on our lap!

Backgound

Hollywood’s influence has been felt in American culture for decades. Movie fan magazines began in 1911 and prospered through the decades with names like Photoplay and Modern Screen leading the pack. By the late 1940ss and 1950s, America’s growing wealth spurred adolescents and young adults to buy and read these magazines in even large numbers. Magazines of this era included Photoplay, Modern Screen, Silver Screen, Movie Fan, Movie Story, Screen Album, Screen Stars, and Screen Stories. Features were typically lightweight and often centered around shopping dilemmas for hounded stars or stories from the set of a new movie. The slick color photos were really the centerpieces of these magazines.

By the 1960s, specialty magazines such as Screen Legends and Film and TV Careers featured celebrity profiles and interviews. It was in this period that many magazines began featuring more salacious material to boost circulation. That led to this era’s tabloids which include the National Enquirer, the National Examiner, Star and US. Although some stories are largely fabricated, readers want to believe it and it’s the writer’s job to make each story sound credible. Although most celebrities decry the tabloids, their own publicists often suggest story lines to magazine editors. One fact is certain, sensational news is big business and the demand for this type of entertainment continues unabated.

Television and celebrity news are an ideal match. Sound, moving images and an enthusiastic host makes for addicting viewing. Entertainment Tonight began broadcasting in 1981 and set the benchmark for slick and fast paced half hour episodes focusing on Hollywood news with a focus on controversial star behavior. Cable TV outlets such as CNN, A&E, and even your local newscast often include celebrity centered programming. E! network owes its very existence to celebrities and their foibles. And Hollywood celebrities still make of the majority of late night shows’ guest lists.

Many younger fans get their news primarily from the internet. A recent Google search brings up over 18 million hits for “celebrity news.” RSS news feeds are available to bring the latest news of your favorite stars right to your desktop. Recent upstart TMZ has become an internet powerhouse. TMZ has the corporate backing of AOL and Telepictures Productions, a division of Warner Bros. The web site has garnered attention from other entertainment outlets by publishing Mel Gibson’s DUI police report, showing an image of Tom Cruise and Katie Holme’s daughter’s birth certificate and presenting a cell phone video of Michael Richard’s racial outburst at a comedy club.

The internet is a solid match for those looking for images of their favorite stars. A single site can hold many thousands of images, all cataloged by name. Web searchers can copy and paste these images for their own personal use. Popular destinations include personal blogs, My Space profiles or other social networks, and as computer desktop screen savers and wallpaper.

Is this modern day obsession with celebrity harmful? As with anything, if it interferes with conducting your daily life, it just may be. But as a leisure time activity, it’s no more than a harmless and enjoyable diversion.

Celebrity Gossip and Why We Love It

Celebrity Gossip and Why We Love It | By Paul Steinberg

People love to find out about their favorite celebrities. After all, even if they don’t buy the magazines, lots of people read the headlines on the gossip magazines in line at the grocery store, and when bits of news make it to the news stations or into their email, most people absorb the information and spend the rest of the day wondering more about what they just found out. Even news sites often have a place to get information about celebrity gossip, and these are often the stories that are most often emailed or read by internet users.

Celebrity gossip is the way people learn more about their favorite celebs. Reading websites about the them gives people some information, but usually it has to do with their professional lives, which leaves people feeling the celebrities are a little two-dimensional.

Celebrity gossip usually consists of tidbits of information about peoples’ personal lives, such as who they’re dating, who they’re not speaking to, and why they look like they’ve gained or lost ten pounds. Many people also like to see candid photos of people living their lives. Many photos are accompanied by an explanation of what they’re doing, and it gives people a chance to see what they look like without make-up, designer evening wear, and the magic of Photoshop. So why do people find gossip so enticing when they don’t know the celebrities personally?

For many, they like knowing more about their favorite stars because it makes them more “real.” With personal information about actors, for example, they go from being characters on a screen or stage to being real people with families and friends and mortgages. This makes them feel three-dimensional to people.

For others, celebrity gossip may be interesting because it makes them seem “more human.” People tend to put stars up on a pedestal, and when they know more about their personal lives, it gives them information they may be able to relate to, which gives them a connection to a celebrity. It allows people to take them off a pedestal and put them on an equal level.
