Surname 1 Student’s name: Professor’s name: Course: Date: Celebrity Culture and Hollywood Studio Hollywood studios mold and create celebrities purposefully to appeal to the public. Dyer used the term coherent entity to refer to the understanding that people have about celebrities. It refers to how people perceive the star. I agree with the author because a celebrity can be molded to fit into any context as long as it is something that needs the presence of a celebrity to succeed. The celebrity can be an actor today, and tomorrow the same celebrity would appear in another charity initiative aimed at helping certain vulnerable groups. In this case, the celebrity as a coherent entity changes (Dyer 85). However, the celebrity must maintain the celebrity nature, he or she must maintain the appearances and everything that makes him or her a star. Thesis statement : Hollywood studios create and preserve the celebrity culture by molding the stars in the images that attract and appeal to the public The celebrity must still be able to command huge following and be able to convince his or her followers to buy his or her products. In this case, the fundamental core must remain the same even if the coherent entity changes. Changing the coherent entity involves the celebrity changing both externally and internally to fit the new role or context. However, this does not mean that the fundamental core of being celebrity changes, he or she must remain a celebrity even when working in a cleaning exercise. He must stand out, be recognizable by his followers,

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
