That says a lot about how strong the media can influence society. If a celebrity were to step out of line of their regular behavior that’d be the next cover story for their next magazine. It’s because so many people, especially youth tend to look up to celebrity figures like Emma Watson, Jennifer Lawrence or Beyoncé. Being a celebrity is its’ own industry in itself. They need to keep up with the image they set for themselves because of the expectations set by the media and their fans.
Everything they do is quickly & widely reported in the media which has become so powerful device for both increasing communication and ridicule. Whether the media is fair in how they report things is debatable, but in the end that is irrelevant, the reality is that any fault is widely reported. It is about time athletes got used to this idea. So, we all have responsibility for our actions. And, the younger we are the more easily we are affected by the actions of others, so when are we most affected by athlete’s actions?
I think the biggest attraction is the money, as famous people naturally seem to have lots of it. As a result, you have all the things that come with the money, for instance a big mansion, a fancy car, expensive dresses or jewelry. Then there are all the exclusive parties where you meet all these apparently interesting people, and, last but not least, everybody knows you, seems to be interested in you and wants to be friend with you. I think that this facts give to us an envy for have the same life. But when we reflect more about that we realize the money doesn't give to us everything.
Mainstream marketing and media have effectively brainwashed our society into accepting a false meaning of success. The media want us to believe that having lots of money, living in a big house, and owning all of the latest cars, fashions, and technology is the key to happiness, and real success. True success requires respect, appreciation, integrity, and patience, which are traits that by human nature are difficult to get, especially in the face of the media who relentlessly deceive us, control our thoughts, and usurp our independence in order to increase their bottom line. In addition, marketers want us to believe that living a selfish life, involving nothing but the pursuit of money and fame will bring success and happiness. Sadly, this is not true.

Throughout the country, the media is owned and controlled by a select few, many of whom have been corrupted over time by the desire to maintain an ever-increasing affluence. In their quest to continue acquiring greater wealth, the owners of broadcasting stations, newspapers, magazines and radio stations have learned to carefully manipulate and structure the news in such a way as to benefit the politicians who support their greed, all the while putting aside the needs of the very citizens for whom they claim
Both observers and participants in sports should use responsible decision making and good judgment when it comes to bolstering the popularity of the athletes and allowing them to be seen as role models for others. Sports became popular in America at a time when the American people needed a distraction and needed to find some enjoyment that would take their minds off of the events that they were going on around them. “As big-media and even bigger corporations joined the fray, athletes were ratcheted up to the highest perches in the nation's pantheon. Americans bought into it emotionally and economically. We convinced ourselves that, while we couldn't emulate our heroes' performances, we could -- if only for a moment -- for maybe one shot "be like Mike," stalk the golf course like Tiger, or channel our inner Lance.
Our Expectation to Celebrities There are plenty of celebrities in the world. Usually, we see them as our idols. Consequently, people put forward some questions about them. Some people believe that famous people ought to be perfect as the pride of being famous, while the others think that no one is perfect, including the celebrities. In my opinion, however, we do expect too much from them.
Since before my time, media has had a huge impact on American culture. Without people even realizing it, because people are so caught up in the changes they are blinded, by them. There are a lot of people that wouldn’t even considering the good in media, they just rather look at all the bad; and would dare use any source of media. Media can easily play the good role as well as the bad role. It just depends what side best fits you.
