These famous icons, superstars, are presented to us as examples, ideals, even as authorities.
The popular culture, social media and the celebrity entertainment business offer perfect surroundings for the new digital age obsessions - the personality cult phenomenon and personal branding. Our external appearance has to represent our inner qualities. Features which are not approved by the media are forbidden. We are all expected to be super stars - to look like one and to live like one.
