Celebrity Consumption Experiences: Liminality and Hyperreality in Celebrity - Consumer Interactions
This paper expands celebrity consumption research beyond a celebrity-as-object conceptualisation, to include their liminal subjectivity. Twelve self-identified media users were interviewed, finding four types of celebrity consumption experiences: reading, characterising, parasocialising and encountering. Celebrity consumption experiences enable individuals to both reinforce and subvert celebrity structures in building their social world.
