In today’s technological age, we can look into the lives of everyone. That is especially true for celebrities. Most famous personalities now have social media accounts you can follow. Apps such as Instagram have allowed fans to get a glimpse into the lives of their favorite celebrities. However, some fans obsess over their famous personalities a bit too much. The obsession can get unhealthy if it begins to emotionally and physically harm you. For people with insecurity and body dysmorphia, idolizing celebrities like the Kardashians can be detrimental to them. The Kardashian-Jenner clan is famous for getting surgeries done to enhance their features. One of her biggest fans, Jennifer Pamplona, paid a fortune to look like Kim Kardashian and underwent a series of epic surgery fails.
A culture of idolization can become a dangerous one, especially if it’s towards people in the entertainment industry. A big part of the entertainment industry is looking good for the camera. The pressure from having to do this sometimes makes these celebrities get all kinds of surgeries. It’s almost like a trickle-down effect from there. The personalities in the modeling or acting world often set the trend that people conform to.
Jennifer Pamplona, a twenty-seven-year-old woman from LA, spent five-hundred-thousand dollars to look like Kim Kardashian. I think it’s safe to say that Kim is her idol, and she’d do anything to look like the reality TV star. Jennifer fell prey to this culture of idolization, and her series of painfully unsuccessful surgeries are proof of that.
The Kardashians are a family that has had a significant impact on society, and it’s not always for the best. Regardless of who your favorite from the Kardashian-Jenner clan might be, no one can deny their celebrity status. They came to prominence on the hit reality TV show, Keeping Up With The Kardashians. If you think about it, their lives were the most exposed than any other celebrity because of the show. Fans of the five celebrity sisters had all the content they wanted on the family. Sometimes a little privacy can go a long way. Jennifer Pamplona had a lot of access into Kim Kardashian’s life which probably fueled her obsession. Furthermore, the Kardashian dynasty also has a large amount of influence in the fashion industry. Their fans often see the way they look and dress as the pinnacle beauty standard.
Instagram influencers have a certain responsibility to their followers. Instagram fame comes with a certain degree of responsibility. If you have amassed a large following, then you should be ethical enough not to spread misinformation. Influencers have a deep relationship with their audience as compared to television personalities. Celebrities who are active on Instagram have a much more significant impact on the people who view their content. Although these Instagram personalities can’t ensure that their content won’t be perceived negatively, it doesn’t rid them of responsibility. Models like the Kardashians, who have had many surgeries, should also promote self-love and love for your own body.
