Every day (almost every few hours), something resembling a scandal or controversy swirls in the media sphere. Entertainment news outlets feed off of and circulate stories that shock (as well as confirm) expectations. When it comes to popular culture, as we have been learning, such moments usually indicate that something important is at stake. The people that form popular culture are invested in the celebrity or action that the cultural industries have provided.
Your assignment:
Pick a recent scandal or controversy related to a celebrity or influencer. Analyze the event through the themes you’ve encountered during the weeks on celebrity and influencers, while keeping in mind the core power relations we’ve been examining recently: race, gender, activism, trolling.
What are the key issues raised by this story? Why do you think it resonates so much with a pop culture audience? What issues around power and control over meaning are evident in this example?
Explore the different perspectives on the controversy: Who are the social actors involved in making the story stick?
Some other questions and prompts: How does it speak to the balance of industry needs with people’s need? What did the PR, management, or branding agency do to manage the crisis, and what did fans and audiences (and critics) have to say? If it involved a news agency, brand, or company, what can popular culture show us when it comes to professionalism and ethics?
Pick three readings from our semester so far to help you think through these issues. In addition, find at least two more academic or feature-length analyses (not just hot takes). Venues where one can find such things include The Cut, The Root, The Conversation, Atlantic, Jezebel, The New Yorker, Medium). The articles from these publications should be 1000 words or more (or three articles that are 750 words each, should you find it hard to locate sources). Five cited articles at very minimum (three from class, two from external sources (academic or feature-length popular media with critical analysis.)
Feel free to run your scandal choice by me if you’re not sure it’s controversial enough.
By recent, I mean within the last couple of years, but if it’s something that you found that really piqued your attention from before that time period, let me know.

Frequently asked questions

How soon can I get my paper done?

It depends with your deadline. If you need your paper completed in 3 hours, we will deliver it in that time. All you need to do is indicate your deadline in our custom order page here. Alternatively, if you are sending us your instructions via email, please be sure to indicate your deadline.

Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.

We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.

Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?

All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.

What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?

Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!

Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?

We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.

I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?

Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.

I got my order information wrong, can I change that?

Yes you can. Just reach out to our support team via email (support@essaynook.com) or live chat here and they’ll help you change the instructions.

Can I place an order via email instead of going through the order page?

Yes you can. Email Anna at anna@essaynook.com, she’s in charge of our sales team. Alternatively, you can talk to our Live Chat team here and request to speak to Anna.
