I have nothing against those who gain fame as a result of their talent, whether it be acting, directing or singing, they have a right to all the success and fame that they receive. However, I find it difficult to understand why society today is placing such focus on these 'talentless' celebrities. People have become obsessed with these so called stars, from fans to journalists, these people have swamped the world of the celebrity.
Take the world famous Kim Kardashian, who rose to ultra fame as a result of her infamous sex tape with her then boyfriend, musician Ray J. Following the tape, she and her family were offered their own reality TV show, and the rest is history.
This women is famous for nothing but a disgusting fame hungry video exploiting herself and reaching new levels of self degradation. Many girls see Miss Kardashian was a role model, someone they aspire to be like and someone they aspire to be like and even someone who is a true embodiment of the perfect woman. I struggle to understand why popular culture so much on Kim and the rest of her family, she has no real talent. Some may argue to that she is a 'businesswoman' but I struggle to think that she has created these ventures, I believe that she has a very skilled team who have shaped her brand.
This woman is a billionaire, she is in every magazine, website , you can't not know of her existence. I just can't pinpoint why other than her good looks, what can she can offer to her young female fans, apart from exploiting yourself in a sex tape?
Other celebs such as Paris Hilton, heiress to the Hilton Hotels franchise, have dominated the limelight. She, in my eyes, is nothing but a young lady with an extremely wealthy fortune ( and a sex tape aswell!) who has ultimately walked into Hollywood fame and earned a name for herself.
I find it quite sad that this our celebrity culture, overpowered by talentless people who have a fan base of over a million people. The fact that worries me the most is most of these die hard fans are young girls like myself, who think that artificial and sexual factors will get you fame.
I just hope that one day society will stop reporting on those with no talent, and start to focus more on the people who can really make a different to the world and be someone who that others can look up to.
