Transcripts - Pop star image

  • 1. Pop Star Image A look at the image through the Pop industry.
  • 2. What is a pop star? • A true pop star has lasting significance with his/her/their image. Sometimes the image would change mostly to what the audience or the record company wants. • Being a pop star is an interchangeable being whereas a pop performer stays or changes his/her/their image to how they feel.
  • 3. DYER THEORY • STAR CONTRUCTIONS – USP to be copied or have a parody, Dyer says “a star is an image not a real person, that is constructed out of a range of materials.” • INDUSTRY AND AUDIENCE – appeal to audiences, which will in turn generate revenue for the record companies. • IDEOLOGY AND CULTURE – the star represents shared cultural values and attitudes with beliefs and lifestyles.
  • 4. What makes a Male Pop star? • Have image that makes girls want to love them and for boys to follow them so they can impress girls. • To have (sometimes questionable) good voice. • To sell products that pleases the audience. • To become a blank canvas for the record company to turn him into a polished boy star. • For the younger female audience to be their first ever crush and to hint a sexual appeal to the more mature fans. Examples of Male Pop Stars - Justin Bieber - Rick Astley - Connor Maynard - Justin Timberlake - George Michael - Michael Jackson - Jason Donavan - Robbie Williams - Ronan Keating
  • 5. Different types of male pop stars The bad boy image shows a rough and overly sexual image, he mostly will be covered by tattoos and would show muscle and other body parts to please the girl fandom. Robbie Williams is a prime example as his wild personality drove him to the pop spotlight. The pop star would sing mainly ballads and love songs to melt women's hearts, to stand with a microphone and sing either about fallen in or fallen out of love. Ronan Keating is famous for singing emotional songs which what he is identified as. Cute, funny and a little bit geeky he's the one who always smiling and loves friendship singing cute ‘candy Pop’ and wearing Ken doll inspired clothes. Donny Osmond was the Justin Bieber of the 70s not disappointing anything but the above.

  • 7. What Makes a Female Pop Star? • To reflect the everyday girl. • To have a voice that appeals to a audience. • To dress in appropriate clothing and selling the brand. • To appeal the male audience by sexual desire. • Being into fashion and beauty. Example of Female Pop stars - Madonna - Beyoncé - Britney Spears - Leona Lewis - Kylie Minogue - Kelly Clarkson - Ariana Grande - Sonia - Billie
  • 8. Different types of Female pop stars The cookie girl is a sweet and friendly pop star with some street cred, singing about first love and friendship always smiling and having a quirky sense of style. New Pop Star Ariana Grande not only has a young following of girls she is a cookie girl to a t. A voice that no one has and is iconic, sings of what a girl is feeling and reflects that it doesn’t matter how cute or sexy you have a talent. The beauty is simple and the clothes were normally at classical concerts. Annie Lennox though is remembered for her androgynous and chameleon style she still had the same voice which would be breath taking. Strong, sassy and will always stand up to each other and men, her look is edgy, hard and her personality is a diva either good or bad. She helps shy women become independent and never lets any bully or nasty word lye. Beyoncé is undoubtedly the current 21st century independent woman and is making her own stamp on the definition.
  • 9. The Evolution of Kylie Minogue http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lsM8NCucf 54
  • 10. How to make a boy band • To have a harmony slick enough to entice their audience. • Have numerous personalities to drive the band making them fresh. • Huge sex appeal but with younger audiences to have the cute factor. • Girls! Girls! Girls! Examples of boy bands - Take That - 5ive - JLS - Jackson 5 - Blue - Boyzone - Boyz II Men
  • 11. Different types of boy band Ken Dolls are pop clean, a multiple versions of the boy next door. Wearing colourful and sometimes dated clothing for the future audience they touch a young girls dreams, The Jacksons or Jackson 5 were the african-american brother band of the 70s but they were not alone examples The Osmond's and Bay City Rollers. Harmonious and working in sync this type of boy band is mostly for the mature audience, posing and showing more than their bare talent, everyone (mostly) is included in singing and dancing. JLS are the Pop/RnB boy band which convey these factors. Boisterous, cranky, wild and full of personality, rough and tough boy bands are more street cred and more realistic than the other types of boy bands. 5ive were exactly like this even in their personal life, wild behaviour can reflect their rise and fall of the pop career.
  • 12. What makes a Girl pop group • Goods Voices that match. • Innocence of Girls to appeal to their primary audience. • To have different personalities and cultural differences if in a striking group. • Girls have better dance moves. • Easy to emphasise with than boys. Examples of Girl pop Groups - Spice Girls - All Saints - The Nolans - T.L.C - Little Mix - The Supremes - Stooshe - Girls Aloud - En Vogue - The Honeyz
  • 13. Different types of Girl Pop Bands Girl Power is about self confidence and strong womanhood and representations which revolve all types of girls and coming to together and take on the man ruled world. On group has not only have creative but is recognised by ‘girl power’ is the Spice Girls, during the 90s all pop wanted was boy bands, so to stand out, the girls made different aliases for example; Ginger, Sporty, Scary, Posh and Baby. Urban chicks are the complete opposite to the cookie cut girls, tough and with a bit of aggression they show that its foolish to mess with girls. The early Bananarama was exactly like this with an urban look in the 80s, now the urban chicks nowadays has become more hip- hop than alternative. Sisters in real life or very close friends with soul and passion for singing in harmony and sing mostly about sisterhood. Sister Sledge are real sisters and their anthem ‘We Are Family’ convey this message.
