Stars lead us into temptation
By Lori Mastronardi
Figures of the entertainment world are in a powerful position: they have the
potential to lure audiences into idolizing their arguable talent and, inevitably,
their views on various issues.
However, if you have no regard for politics, why should you care if Bono makes
a speech? If you litter regularly, are you going to help save the trees just
because Coldplay urges you to?
Realistically, we are radically detached from voices on radio, images on screen
and scandals in Hollywood. Fame doesn’t equate to wisdom, so why should
we invest our belief in stars, simply because they can deliver their opinions
to a widespread audience?
In the realm of entertainment there are a few figures who stand out. And the
top five leaders of the entertainment world are...
Brad is the kind of star who can lead you anywhere: the bedroom, broom closet
or death. In Meet Joe Black, Pitt led us to believe that even dying could
be considered sexy.
Kylie is that special woman who can attract a plethora of gay men with her
intense flavour and colour. Plus, Kylie gives washed-up artists reason to
believe it is possible to make a comeback in this cutthroat business.
Six seasons of overanalyzing relationships, men and self, Sex and the City
starlet Sarah Jessica Parker has lead the female race into spending countless
hours in another world and spending countless dollars on the series’ collection
Although incessantly critiqued, Madonna emphasizes that women can get what
they want, if they really want it. She inspired teen pop princesses Britney
and Christina to replace innocence with sexuality.
Even if you begin with sketchy bleach blonde curls in a boy band that rivals
the Backstreet Boys, Justin proves you can eventually adopt an enviable reputation.
He is the envy of all straight men — what male hasn’t dreamed
of revealing Janet’s breast at the most masculine event of the year?
