Summary
Film stars and music stars are national and even international celebrities, widely discussed and promoted through mainstream media outlets. However, the Internet and social media have made it possible for people to communicate with each other and discuss interests without relying on magazines, newspapers, or television shows. As a result, many communities have begun to have micro-celebrities; individuals who may have thousands, or even millions, of fans, even though they are not followed or promoted by traditional media. Opposing Viewpoints: Celebrity Culture examines other controversies and discussions surrounding celebrity in chapters titled "Is Celebrity Culture Harmful?", "Is Celebrity Activism Beneficial?", "How Does Celebrity Culture Affect Particular Groups?", and "Is Celebrity Culture Changing?" Many of the issues raised by celebrity cosplayers --- the rise of social media, celebrity endorsements, and celebrity reflection of body image --- are mirrored in the following chapters on mainstream celebrities and their place in culture and society. -- From the introduction, pages 14-16
