Another star acts her age (or younger?) in a public forum. This time, it was KIIS FM's 2013 Jingle Ball and the entertainer was Selena Gomez.
According to Us Weekly, Selena was frustrated by the technical difficulty and after cussing, walked off the stage before completing her set, leaving the predominantly child audience left wanting more. The videos of her shows the stage go dark and an f-bomb is uttered. See one of the video captures here. She seemed to try to pacify the audience (probably more so trying to pacify herself) by talking to them awaiting the correction of the technical difficulty, but soon gave into her own frustration and exited stage left.
Is this a publicity stunt to garner more attention? After all, it worked with Miley Cyrus and even with the negative attention, many advertising agencies and bloggers benefitted too, as shown in this episode of Marketing Momentum w/Charles and Deborah. Can we really lay the blame on this young women, or are we, as a society, feeding it and encouraging it? Even this article that you are reading gives Selena (and Miley) publicity, proving that "acting up" actually does add to the measurement of exposure to the public and the fame of the celebrity.
