We have to admit the media has a lot of influence on our lives, especially the lives of our young people. They want to mimic the Rhianna’s, Nicky Minaj and Beyoncé’s of this world. They esteem these artist as having the acceptable standards of beauty based upon how they are received by society and the industries who market them.
And then there’s the media’s depiction of beauty and the influence it feeds to the images on television, social media and the internet. The messages are subliminal but the images are powerful. They want to influence how we look, how we feel, what we eat, how we spend our money and even how to invest our time on a daily basis. The repetition is deliberate and can warp one’s perspective of the truth.
