The Media makes the Celebrity

“they are the material for the media of communication and entertainment” (C. Wright Mills)

The jersey shore  cast have really made a name for themselves on their MTV hit show. These people were normal people until this show first aired and millions of people tuned into watch. They started a new phenomenon called “GTL” which everyone knows to stand for gym tanning laundry. They might act crazy, stupid, and inappropriate; but that is how they get noticed and roll in the money.

  1. Could you also say the celebrity makes the media?

  2. I wouldn’t call these people “normal”. As is custom with MTV reality shows, they seem to find the abnormal people and make a show out of them. But I do agree that that is the way MTV transforms common people into celebrities.
