The majority of her songs have a catchy beat and story. In fact, I could listen to Ke$ha’s songs all day long and not get tired of them. Ke$ha may apply auto-tune to her voice, but she does this intentionally to give it a robotic, techno effect. Like I mentioned earlier, I have heard her live twice, and she sounds phenomenal without auto-tune as well. My favorite part about Ke$ha happens to be her fashion style.
Experiencing the works of Britney first hand is the most amazing feeling in the world. The way that she moved up on stage and got the crowd going really made me look up to her as a role model. Her vocals and the way she interacted with us made it such an enjoyable experience. If I had to choose to see anyone in the world for my first concert I would say her name without hesitation.

A lot of people take it easy, but she likes to push us and help us succeed at what we want and determine to get. Another great thing about Ms. Morrow is that she has an encyclopedia of music and literature in her head. You can ask her anything about music and she'll know it. Ms. Morrow's enthusiasm has continued to affect our choirs. Her "shoot for the moon" attitude make me want to work harder and reach for more ambitious goals.

And when it’s all over, everyone’s going to press rewind and relive it again” (Gaga). Lady Gaga's costumes are more outrageous and daring than Madonna's. From her 10 inch heels to her inventive hair styles (“bow” hairstyle, array of hair colours, high-sky hair) to her clothing that could consist of Swarovski crystals, spikes, fringe and latex.
The popularity of television shows like American Idol, X Factor, and America Got talent revealed that Americans are infatuated with music icons. For example America is obsessed with Beyoncé, Lil Wayne, Michael Jackson, The Beatles and Britney Spears. What these artists have in common is that they are wealthy, famous, and have amazing talent. This is what it takes for American’s to become interested in music icons. If you ask a young child who they want to be when they grow up they will say these following names; Beyoncé, Lil Wayne, Michael Jackson, the Beatles and Britney Spears and not both senators Bachman and Obama.

Madonna, born Madonna Louise Veronica Ciccone, is a common household name. It is a name recognized by literally everyone in the world. Madonna was able to establish a name for herself and create this widespread recognition by not only beating out her male competitors in the entertainment industry but also establishing a name for herself as an icon for her fans all over the world. Madonna was heavily influenced by her parents because she longed for affection from her father due to the death of her mother. Even though she lacked a real mother figure in her life, Madonna still connected deeply with her father Tony.

But can that be said about all of them? There are many celebrities who continue to motivate and influence the life of many. Most of the role model celebrities in the world wouldn’t be the people they are today if it weren’t for their past disappoints and struggles.
