Well, when we talk about celebrities, we immediately think about famous singers or actors, but we forget about clever scientists who made a huge difference in this world, and who truly deserve to be talked about, imitated, and to be extremely wonderful role models. Creative minds and inventive spirits have a large effect on our life style, and we have to be grateful for them. And I think that they're not harmful for their "fans", nor for themselves. They've only the candles that God sent to us so that we're leaded to the right path.

There are celebrities who don't deserve to be seen as role models, because they haven't done anything right and appropriate. I think that good role models are the sportspeople, because they promote a healthy lifestyle and dedication. Also good role models are the activists such as Malala Yousafzai. Unfortunately everyone today is obsessed with people who don't motivate them to be a better person.

Yes, I do. Celebrities make often disastrous role models. For example teenagers idolise female stars with a perfect body because they are unhappy with their own bodies. Many celebrities are narcissistic and worthlessness.
Luis Suarez, one of the best soccer players on the planet, has a history of biting his opponents during matches. He is probably the worst role model.
Talora Swift is an example of good role model. Her cencerts have a positive message for young girls and she always conduces herself as if her parents arte watching her every more. I like this example of role model.

I think that here are so many reasons why celebrities are bad role models that it seems puzzling that anyone should look up to them. Of course, some are genuinely positive role models who achieve something worthwhile. Yet it seems to be expecting a lot of people who are just paid to perform. Here are some of the reasons why celebrities are bad role models …

In my opinion, any celebrity should be a role model. Because they are just like the ordinary people(they make mistakes and also good things). Sometimes I feel like celebrities do things that are out of their original behaviour just because they don't want to disappoint the people that like them, sometimes I feel like they feel pressured to be perfect. But, if somebody still wants a role model they have to look for good people, somebody who have the same beliefs that you have, not always a celebrities are disastrous role model.

Celebrities can be good and bad.For example :Taylor Swift got famous 'cause songs about breakups,not because good voice,so that is kind of 'bad' celebrities.I like all celebrities,but there should be difference between ones who are good at their job and ones who are bad at their job!

I think the celebrities who got affected by fame are the bad ones. I don't like when I see a person that is supposed to be a role model, and it acts like a...I don't know, is there a word for person that only cares for money and fame, or how many likes or followers he/she will get on social media?

I think that it depends on what the celebrities does. E.g: Taylor Swift, she is a real role model for many teen girls nowadays, but she is still normal, not like Madonna.And Eminem, a famous rapper, always swear on his music. Really though, I do not like any celebrities.But it is a good and interesting question

I think it depends on what the celebrities does. As example miley cyrus is not a good role model. teeneger who are a fan of her are going to use the same way just because their favourite celebrities does this. they are rarely celebrities, who have a good affect on the teeneger. Because at the beginning the celebrities are role model. But after a time the same celebrities wil become disastrous role model, because they go through the worse things and they become even drug addict.

Yeah, I think sometimes famous people can be so irresponsible with what they do, and what they represent for society. For example Miley Cyrus, who was a role model for so many girls around the world, and now she's being such a bad model just because she wants attention, money and a "normal teenager life", but she's forgetting what she used to represent. You choose what you do with your life, but she was something different, even if she never wanted it. I don't think what she does is right. Or Justin Bieber, the same thing I think about him. I know lots of girls about 12 or 14 who loves him, just because of his face, but don't mind of his behaviour.
And I have such a wonderful man I love: Robert Downey Jr. He's the perfect example of a guy who had passed through some hard things, by his own choice, but had been over them succesfully and now he's a million boys' hero, and lots of girls and women have a crush on him.
His life is so inspiring for me, although he wasn't always the good one, he has learned of what he lived and I guess that's what really matters: learning of the mistakes of our youth. Oh! That reminds me someone I love too: Mark Oliver Everett aka Mr. E. He is so inspiring for me too, 'cause he have been through a lot of pain and it wasn't his fault, but he's so romantic and positive and awesome, he is a genius.
I love them not just because they're good in what they do (Robert is an actor, songwriter and produce and Mr. E is a singer, songwriter and musician), but because they have amazing lives.

Sometimes they do make disastrous role models because they are victims of fame. Fame changes people. For example a famous person or a celebritie has a personal image to keep and sometimes that image fades more and more and another celebritie image rises leaving the previous one in total darkness... That celebritie who is losing his/her fame has to do something about it quickly and let me tell you that he/she choose the worst ways possible just to be in the center of attention once more and that gives a really bad example to people. ...Why?....Because by doing that they make people face the fact that to have something quick and fast every thing can be used, but it can't!!
