Term paper topic

Posted by ryannpopp on May 7, 2013

My topic was originally just going to be about Justin bieber and his successful career true youtube, but then I had doubts that I could write ten pages worth of information about that and how he has become a bad influence to his younger fans. I began to think about how I could make it a better and longer topic. What came to mind was how Justin bieber had been getting into drugs, and he’s not the first singer, or actress to do drugs. Drugs are very common in the Hollywood world. The Red Hot Chili Peppers wrote a song calling “Californication” and it explains what goes on and what people get pulled in to.

Other actresses and actors have got pulled in to the drug world such as Lindsey Lohan, and Amanda Bynes. Whether or not they are really abusing drugs, or not, they media will be stretch the truth and it will be all over the news, and the magazine for the world to see. Celebrities are role models to people and al lot of people look up to them and are influenced by them, but celebrities don’t take in to consideration that every movement is criticized.

Justin Bieber isn’t quite that drastic as Lindsey or Amanda but he is on the road to getting a bad reputation because he is hanging out with the wrong crowd. Justin also has a younger crowd, the people who are his biggest fans are those who are preteens, which is how Lindsey and Amanda’s career as actresses started as well.

Amanda was on Nickelodeon with her show The Amanda Show, this is a show that I grew up watching. Once she got older she was still successful in her career she had a show called What I like about You, and was in She’s the Man, and played a smaller role in Easy A. A lot of people noticed her weight gain in the movie Easy A; I think that her weight gain might have pushed her to drugs, because of how people started viewing her.

“These behaviors sound like something more than just attention seeking, and it is unclear to me whether she is suffering from a medical or psychiatric disorder, or under the influence of alcohol or drugs,” L.A-based addiction specialist Dr. Damon Raskin, told FOX411’s Pop Tarts column. “She could be having a manic episode which often leads to these eccentric and strange outbursts, bizarre dress and changes in appetite. Many drugs such as methamphetamine, bath salts or even excessive alcohol could make her act this way.”

Lindsey was on Disney Channel in multiple movies that came out whenever I was in middle school; my first Disney movie that I seen with Lindsey Lohan in was The Parent Trap. After seeing a movie with her in it, of course I wanted to watch her other movies that she was in. Lindsey Lohan has been involved with drugs, and has been to rehab for her problems, though she tells reporters that rehab is pointless.

I know that it comes off as dramatic comparing Justin Bieber to Lindsey Lohan and Amanda Bynes, but even if Justin Bieber isn’t as bad as it may seem he will still get a bad reputation from who he hangs out with and the choices he makes. His family has been concerned about his recent activity and hope that this is just a stage.

These aren’t the only celebrities that im going to talk about but the main point that im going to write about now is how the stress and pressure of being famous and what celebrities deal with on a day to day basis can affect them and how they view themselves. I feel like right now the  actions of Justin Bieber are more innocent than Lindsey and Amanda but it’s changing the way people view him as a whole; whenever people/fan hear negative information,  the majority of the time everyone will forget about the positive.

This paper can be about than just drugs, and stress, but it can also be about spreadable media, and about how I heard about the celebrities struggles through twitter, and spreadable media. I just changed my topic tonight, because I started writing and I didn’t think I could fill 10-12 pages without changing the topic. It might sound not all put together, but this is just to gather some of my thoughts.

    Thanks, Ryann. Keep in mind that you want to avoid, in your term paper, simply recounting various press accounts about people’s struggle with drug addictions, or speculating on what may or may not be their mental state. The purpose of the term paper is to deliberate something about our culture, and to use that as a way to teach all of us–your readers–something about society. So, a few things come to mind here:
    -You point out that you might write about how some of these stories spread. What makes us share them? Literally, how did some of them spread? Etc. What makes stories of Justin Bieber’s misdeeds spreadable, and what does it say about us that we share them so broadly? That is one potential angle here.
    -No matter what angle you take, be thinking about the academic sources that tie into your research. Again, the point of any particular star, celebrity, etc., here is that their story is just acting as a case study to demonstrate some larger issue that your are showing your reader. Think about what that thesis is.
