Celebrities: Who is the greatest celebrity of all time?

Celebrities: Who is the greatest celebrity of all time?

Do you know the Uruguayan poet Orvilla Bardisio? Probably not – unless you are Uruguayan and have an interest in hair. What about the Russian poet Mikhail Muravyov? Aside from fans of Russian literature of the 18th century, it is probably not very well known here in this country either. These examples show that celebrities are an elusive phenomenon. Who is “known” depends not only on the reason why a person might be known. It also depends on the geographical, temporal or social environment in which one is looking for a celebrity. Some people who are notable to our ancestors are no longer so to us today; That’s why we don’t know all the celebrities on social media that our kids care about.
