When it comes to etiquette, manners and overall good behavior, even celebrities need help navigating the rough waters of stardom! It’s a good thing Countess LuAnn de Lesseps of the Real Housewives of New York is joining forces with OK! to school them on the right thing to do! In a rough situation, we just ask, “What Would the Countess Do?” This week the Countess counsels tween role models taking on adulthood and handling jabs from the media gracefully.
Miley Cyrus and Demi Lovato are Disney stars that are trying to break out of that mold and explore their careers as they mature. When do they stop becoming role models for tweens and start allowing themselves more adult content?
It’s a fact of life that teen stars grow up and become adult artists. Miley Cyrus and Demi Lovato, as they say good-bye to their teen years, will change their repertoires accordingly. I think that it is easier for young people to adjust to their favorite teen stars maturing than it is for parents especially when their little fan is much younger than the stars they love. Disney will always have more young entertainers to fill the gap created by Miley and Demi moving on to more adult pursuits and it is the parent’s responsibility to monitor what their children watch and listen to, to make sure it’s appropriate for young eyes and ears.
Tip: Don’t hang on to your Mouseketeer hat too tightly, life goes on after Miley and Demi.
Lindsay Lohan was recently upset by an episode of Glee in which Gwyneth Paltrow makes fun of her and her crazy lifestyle. Can stars in the public eye get upset in those cases or is it just part of being famous?
In the Glee episode where Gwyneth Paltrow makes fun of Lindsay Lohan, Paltrow is playing a substitute teacher obsessed with being cool so that her students like her. She makes fun of Lindsay in an effort to win over the kids in her class. Although Lindsay got press attention by saying how upset she was by the scene, it was her behavior in the first place that created the opportunity for the lines to be written into this episode.
Tip: Don’t behave in ways that make you great material for comedy writers.
