Summary
"Celebrity and the Media introduces the key terms, concepts, dilemmas and issues that are central to the study and critical understanding of celebrity. In this insightful text, Redmond explores the impacts of celebrity culture on the modern media and everyday life, drawing attention to the ways in which people experience celebrity culture and how celebrities are able to communicate through spectacle, ritual, the confession and the close-up. Featuring a diverse range of case studies from the worlds of film, music, television and sports, and highlighting topical, current and popular celebrity examples, the book stands as a pertinent examination of the influence that celebrity has on the way people place themselves in the modern world. It is essential reading for students of media and cultural studies, as well as anyone interested in celebrity and celebrity culture."--Page 4 of cover
