    I think that setting a good example for their fans should be at the very least in the back of the minds of especially the younger celebrities that kids idolize, but at the same time, we have to remember that celebrities are still people (a majority of them being adult people). They are living their lives just as the rest of us are. They are going to make bad decisions sometimes just as the rest of us do, and we shouldn't really expect so much more of them just because they're over-paid for their jobs.

    They are encouraged to be larger than life. I don't know how they handle the pressure of being perfect every minute of everyday. I couldn't do it. Hounded by photographers every minute of everyday, detailing the stupidest, most pointless things, but it is the general public's fault. We are obsessed with these people, just because they happen to be great at pretending to be someone else for a while. We should be ashamed of ourselves.

    RESPONSIBILITY - is not Mandatory.....Celebrity has their own private life...it depends how they are being Tag/Labeled by the MEDIA...that creates their image... mandatory celebrity private life depends taglabeled media creates image caught in the act  funny

    I believe so. They get their money and their lifestyle from the people who watch them/listen to them. I think it should be part of their job description.
    However, I also believe that they should also get some private time to theirself somewhere, without 50 million greedy paparazzi in their face.

    I kind of have mixed feelings on the subject. Since they are so in the public eye, and have so much influence over fans, maybe they SHOULD, but, I don't think they are obligated to. Celebrities are people just like anyone else and they shouldn't receive extra flak for making the same mistakes that we all do on a daily basis, just because they are famous.

    I think they can do wonders with their fame. Set great examples and I think that is what they should be required to do. If you fall of the scope a bit you shouldn't get anymore attention. I can understand letting the public know what's happened with a certain star, but that is it. Put a lid on it. It's not something I want to hear about day in and out.

    no. they are just humans. "ENTERTAINER'S" as well. No one should act like they do but then again they do act that way. The children or fans should be taught to know better than to follow in an idiot's footsteps.No matter how famous or rich they are.

    ... that they aren't obligated to be role models, but that she should be conscious about how people are watching and judging their every move.

    Also, that people would rather praise a celebrity that's setting a good example than ones like, say, Lindsay Lohan or Charlie Sheen.

    It's not their responsibilities. If they feel they need to be put in that position, then so be it, but I don't look up to them nor want it. I get good examples from people I love, like my parents, sisters, brothers, those are the ones. That's just me...

    More to the point would be the fan's responsibility to put these social renegades out of work. Charlie Sheen should be fired because of viewer uproar, not because of a network decision. Moral reprobates like Sheen, Lohan, and the rest of them, including Slick Willy should be unemployed because of public disgust.

    they do, but they generally set the wrong standard, like getting drunk or doing drugs , and end up in jail.. they figure if the judge is so lenient on the super star, they would be that way with them too... young people are impressionable, and a super stars life looks glamorous to them

    It depends on the fan base. If the fan base is adults, then no. But if their fan base is little kids, then yes. Charlie Sheen? Whatever, his target is adults. Miley Cyrus? 7 year olds look up to her.

    Not really, it's nice if they do set a good example but in the words of Taylor Momsen 'I'm not living my life to be a role model. It's not fair to ask me to... I'm not going to change because someone's upset that their kids might start dressing like me - control your kids. I don't want anyone to dress like me or act like me."

    I think they do, they have a choice on what audience\fans to attract, and if them knowing that they have little-teeney-bopper fans, they should take into consideration the possibilities that they might influence the kids or anyone of the sort for that matter. That's why kids not really have this "gang" rush. Because now all they talk is about drugs, sex, and partying. Which is what most kids now a days are doing. Gosh, people are really messed up in the head. :D

    they have a responsibility to be good entertainers. that's it. that parents allow for their children to grow up idolizing people who do nothing to contribute to anything and simply entertain us is what needs to change. children should be taught to idolize people who have contributed ideas and done something positive for society. einstein over cyrus, thank you.

    that if they know they have fans and people that look up to them, especially younger stars, they should be more aware of the actions they take. your actions define who you are.
