Summary "Ellis Cashmore collects research, theory, and case studies en route as he explores the intriguing issue of celebrity culture: its origins, its meaning, and its global influence. Covering such varied perspectives as fame addiction, the "celebrification" of politics, and celebrity fatigue, Cashmore analyzes the relationship celebrity has with commodification and the consumer society, and investigates the new media and the quest for self-perfection."--BOOK JACKET.
