Power and privilege is one of the most common discussions regarding issues in America. It is having the freedom and opportunities more than others, and often times this power and privilege isn’t earned it is given to those unfairly.

Had his drive and determination not been stronger than the restraints of the media, music wouldn’t have morphed into what it is today. His sound echoes in the background of Pharrell Williams and Justin Timberlake’s songs, of Madonna’s lyrics, and of every hip hop beat there is.

Alyssa Gauna, a journalist, is very passionate about her controversial view regarding the “Negative Influences of celebrities on teens”, believing that, in today’s chaotic society, we should use technology to prevent famous people from having an impact on teenagers. In order to get her points across she generalises celebrities and teenagers, which I disagree with as she is stereotyping both groups of people.
