A celebrity alone can be defined from the lady who you serves you at your local fruit shop to the social media kings and queens, like the one and only #kimye. But lets be serious here, a celebrity is basically who you consider to be a ‘famous person.’ It is through each individual’s profession that allows their social media persona, to define themselves as a celebrity.
To stop you from being totally lost, let me explain what a microcelebrity actually is…
To be broken down into a concept that us, to be understood by the social media addicts that we are, a microcelebrity is an individual who becomes famous in a specific area. A prime example to be considered would have to be nobody other than Kurt Coleman. Kurt is a teenager who has become famous through various media platforms from being utterly self-obsessed. He has become a nation-wide star from posting hundreds of “selfies” to his social media accounts, along with creating his own hashtag, #perflikekurt, resulting in the tag becoming one of the most used throughout many media platforms. Kurt is a perfect example to showcase the power of the media through sharing and posting within the media… Who knew that from posting photos and maintaining an online persona could result in fame?!
Below i have attached an interview with Kurt himself, and no doubt you’ll be able to see his extremely unique personality!
Thats all for now, If i were to ever become a micro celebrity the first thing i would say would have to be… GET ME OUT OF HERE! #punintended
Please don’t hesitate to remain, #perflikekurt
