from lsa 
In the past celebs were icons. We had marilyn, tom cruise,mj etc who were symbols of americana and grandeur. Now it seems that due to youtube, social media and reality tv anyone can be famous and now fame is more of the 15 minute variety. I think after this group of celebrities ( beyonce, angelina etc) celebs will no longer become international icons. Do you agree that social media and internet sites has killed the iconic status of celebrities? ( in a world where black chyna can be a celeb, i cringe)

Lawd, I was just thinking about this topic! I came across a message board with a topic about people who unfollowed certain celebs due to their ratchet behavior on Twitter. Social media destroys that mystery that came with wondering what your fav. celeb's personality is like. Now celebs are just one click away, and anyone with a camera and internet can be famous.

I think so. I hear/read some of these celebs saying how they want some of their mystery back. I'm in Atlanta and I run into celebs all the time. You can read so much about them on their social pages and when I see them, I don't ask for autographs, pics or etc. It's like yeah okay, that's so and so, hey, hi are you, bye. (If it's an A lister, it's a different story lol). I don't see them as special people anymore. Plus I'm older and that could be another reason.

yes girl. I grew up loving Brandy and Monica and I unfollowed both with the quickness. They are both lame as hell to me now. Though I like Monica more these days. I maybe follow 3 celebs, which Janet's team only post for her.

if managed properly celebrity can be bigger than it ever was ... easier access to more audiences and their pockets

just needs a completely new aproach

Its not the internet its the lack of talent and originality. Record companies are satisfied investing in one hit wonders as long as they can bank of the current "sound".  There hasn't been an artist that blows me away consistently however there are artist who impress me with their willingness to do something that isnt predictable.
