Technology: Hollywood’s love/hate affair

Have celebrities’ lives truly been inconvenienced by technology? I, for one, believe that technology creates celebrities. For instance, in action movies there is often a stunt double for the main actor/actress in the action-packed moments. Yet thanks to the magic of video editing, the main actor/actress gets credited for doing the stunts simply because it looks like he/she did. Never once have I heard after seeing an action movie how great the stunt double was.

People say that celebrities are inconvenienced by technology, when in reality, they are famous because of technology. On somewhat of a side note, people say that celebrities have their privacy invaded by the paparazzi and their cameras. That is simply not true; once a person sets out to be a household name, they automatically forfeit their right to privacy. To become famous is to open oneself to the scrutiny of the public.

Technology may aid in the so-called privacy invasions, but this is merely technology collecting payment for making it possible for celebrities to exist. Technology creates celebrities, for we would not have movie stars without cameras, we would not have music stars without recording equipment, and we would not have online stars without YouTube.

Ultimately, the role of technology in a celebrity’s life is that of a trainer: It helps them get what they strive for.
