1960s V.S Today
By: Jesse Smith
¡Gracias para su tiempo!
(Thank you for time)
The media back then the media today are still quite similar; always trying to have the best story or the optimum picture of a celebrity.
Without celebrities or stars always in the news, the media would have nothing to work with, thus sending "hot gossip" on a downward spiral.
Celebrities are known for what they do best; otherwise known as their job. During both time periods, stars are known for that one initial talent they do well. Whether their job is singing, acting, or dancing.

Without fans, without supporters of the talent of a celebrity, they would be nothing. Just a another person with a skill.
Today, you know everything that is going on in a celebrity’s life right at that particular moment. With Facebook, Twitter, and other social media sites, you can forget about privacy.

You also see and hear everything about a celebrity’s life whether the information is appropriate or not.
During the 60s you only knew what the press wanted to reveal to you. Privacy actually existed.
The only time you really got to see celebrities is when they were on the t.v or movies
In the 1960s when society heard a celebrity’s name they thought of what movie they acted in, or what song they sang, but that one skill was the only talent they thought of.

During the decade of the 60s, the public was content with a celebrity entertaining them by doing just one talent.
Unlike the 60s, today when someone hears a stars name they think ‘Oh I have their clothing line’, or ‘I just loved them in that movie’ or even ‘I am glad I bought their fragrance.’

In the current media industry of today, celebrities cover a wide range of entertaining.
Overall, we look at celebrities for advice. For many people, superstars are their role models. The fans count on the celebrity for direction in clothing, personal struggles, and inspiration.

Stars were influential in the 60s in the same way as they are today.
In the 1960s The Beatles were quite influential . People looked up to them for tips on hairdos, dress style, and catch phrases.

They did not want to become influences on teenagers and young adults because some of their actions and decisions were not role model appropriate.
Today, people look at someone such as Lady Gaga for guidance, confidence, and self-acceptance.

Celebrities today send messages through their songs and actions. These messages convey the ideas of being yourself and loving who you are. Their messages empower the youth with bravery and acceptance.
