Celebrity and the Media introduces the reader to 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. Drawing on a diverse range of case studies from the worlds of film, music, television, and sports, and featuring 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.
