It is quite common to see in today’s world that famous sportsmen and movie-stars are highlighted like superheroes by the media. I think there is a genuine reason behind this and the controversy reminds whether it is a positive or negative thing.
The most prominent reason why this happened is because the media know people are curious about such personalities. When these celebrities are focused more and more ,the media aim at hiking their popularity because they know this attracts a multitude of viewers and readers. Therefore, it happens with every print or visual media.
Many believe that the excess media attention paid to famous people, especially in sports and movies is progressive in nature. For the publishers and telecasters, this is an easy way to expand their business. In case of the viewers and readers, these articles or programmes are really entertaining and mostly motivate them to adopt a more socially-acceptable behavior and this happens especially among the youth. Lastly, from the celebrity side, this type of projection is vital in maintaining their popularity.
On the other hand, this particular trend evokes some problems.The first among these is the failure of the media to focus the achievements of other eminent personalities who have imprinted many success stories in fields such as science and technology. The viewers and readers often feel bored by the monotonous style of such media creations. Finally, these celebrities have serious concerns over their privacy even at the farthest end of the world.
To conclude, the exploitation of the curiosity of a reader or a viewer is the main reason for an excess media attention on a sports or movie celebrity and it is hard for many to decide whether this trend is positive or negative.
