Parasocial relationships can be a good thing because there are no arguments, no one is ever disappointed and there is no risk of an end to the relationship. The parasocial relationship can be explained by the Absorption-addiction Model. This model includes 3 stages, entertainment social, intense-personal and borderline-pathological. Katie’s behaviour is nothing to be worries about because most people never go beyond admiring celebrities for their entertainment, which is level one. Parasocial relationships are not necessarily dysfunctional as they may actually offer a range of benefits.
“Standardization of song hits keeps the customers in line by doing their listening for them, as it were. Pseudo-individualization, for its part, keeps them in line by making them forget that what they listen to is already listened to for them, or ‘predigested’” (Course pack page 41, page 445 in original source). Adorno stated that music can be “listened to for you” and that customers are “kept in line”. Both of these statements are referring to music that is a byproduct of Adorno’s Model. When Adorno states that music can be “listened to for you”, he is referring to the standardization process which all popular music goes through.
The quotation by Paglia - in contrast to the work by Erikson as quoted above - suggests that popular culture produces a certain type of individual who develops a pseudo-identity reinforced by pop culture rather than a unique identity. This certainly would apply to the so-called ‘Emo Culture’ that has grown in the realm of pop culture. I am more in the mind of Erikson, who proposes that the influence of popular culture is but one of the issues that a teenager needs to resolve for himself in order to establish his unique identity.

"Napoleon in rags" represents a homeless person and the life of the character is framed in the lines "when you got nothing, you got nothing to lose" and "You're invisible now, you got no secrets to conceal. ANALYSE Okay so analyze, analyzing a related text can be pretty simple if you know how to break down the text and do it bit by bit. In my case the lyrics are begun with the fairytale convention of the words “once upon a time” which is giving the audience the effect of a narrative and the idea of a fairytale and the characters will live happy ever after. This technique is easily reconisable and displays that there is going to be a story, with or without meaning. The use of plural first person using the words “you” and “your” emphasis that Bob Dylan is talking to the girl and the audience feels that Dylan is directing the song to them.
The concerned expression on her face in the image reinforces her mood about the issue of porn in pop videos, and the simple declarative quote in the caption sums the article up. The main body of the article starts off with nouns in apposition “singer Annie Lennox”. This ensures that anyone who may be unsure as to who Lennox is, is made aware that she is in the music business and again emphasises her authority on the topic. There is then a quote from her, saying that music videos have become “highly styled pornography with musical accompaniment”. The adverb ‘highly’ intensifies her point that the ‘pornography’ is styled as to be hidden by a layer of entertainment unlike regular porn, and the noun “accompaniment”
They were singing about war, drugs, and love instead of war. There lyrics were from the heart of these incredible artists. It provoked feelings of rage for the government, and love for one another. The rock and roll movement began out of enclosed energy that had to be released in a positive manner. It had very pure, honest intentions.
The Lady Gaga brand is memorable, meaningful, likable, transferable, adaptable, and protectable. Gaga’s brand there is no mistake that Lady Gaga’s brand, no matter how different, is distinct.

I believe change is always good but not all that change that has been made over the past ten years. In a positive way, technology has advanced when it comes to the movies about our history are more realistic and people can relate a lot more. In a negative way, I feel the media period is destroying our younger generation. Children are “looking up to” their “role models” who are celebrities that are very inappropriate. Sex is about the only thing used now a days to sell anything.

I made this choice because for me music has always been a great thing to turn to when things became rough, my favourite songs are the ones that I can relate to, music is something that always stayed the same even though everything else in my life was completely changing.
As I scroll though my Facebook newsfeed, I see so many posts about people who are attempting to pursue a music career. It seems like everybody is either trying to rap or sing these days, and sometimes both. On one hand, it’s great that people are not just listening to music, but are taking the initiative to make their own music. The backlash of this is that the music industry is becoming overly saturated, with too many people trying to become the next Drake or Justin Bieber. Music isn’t formulaic, there’s no workout plan.
