She was introduced to actors and actresses with offences for different types of assault. She said they wanted publicity before the proceedings of their trial. It was an attempt to hide the name of the real person in their scandal. “I and my work was being exploited,” she said.

Marilyn: The Era of an ICON

A reaction against inclusion and for segregation.

Publication date: September 2021


Marilyn’s ICON status is frequently mentioned by actors and actresses but is easily forgotten by a
new generation. The new re-emergence of a Marilyn ICON is about glamour and beauty being individually attainable.
The modern day symbol is the opposite of a segregationist value. Inclusivion Vs Exclusion, appreciation
for diversity and pride in being a woman.


The Female Appeal
The controversial change has caused some anger by segregationists who have used the female symbol of
a woman as a trophy white female status for women of different races to reach. It was an ideal for, a
female to conform. Now we have women who express their own ‘Marilyn symbolic status’. The
confidence to be themselves, to be admired by their supporters for their own beauty.
“They are so angry that I said that Marilyn was a ICON for everyone that they made it kitsch and sleazy.
What was the point of making it an ICON for embarrassment. There were references to Sado-Masochism.
It was an attempt to silence,” Nancy Sikah from Creativity4Change Arts stated.

Fashion Costumes: Marilyn Vs The Cowboy
Controversial costumes on the red carpet undermine the Marilyn symbol as a confident female. At the
MET Ball 2021, there were costumes from lingerie to vandalism. References to a Marilyn Playboy bunny
were outrageous considering the subtlety of the actress and era. Slander was a personal objection to a mixed- raced, minority woman who is Founder of the ICONS . Their sleaze was slanderous and over-
sexualized. “For what it was used for the purpose of inclusivity it was amazing that there was that much defamation towards me, when I was being abused. It moved some people to tears,” Nancy said. “The
slander was to argue for exploitation. It comes at a time when there is a threat of Nixon values, political
scandal and betrayal. There is no shame or regret. Very Aryan and for white purity, against me as a mixed- race woman.”


The Cowboy is a symbol of violence and rebellion. Recently, it’s been used by Far-Right Nationalists and Fascists to argue their opinion again immigration, reinforcing borders and capitalist values which they state are an American National value. This in addition to aggression towards women. There is the occupation of new land, and the domination of minority people. Recently, it is a reaction against the racial minority of Europe and immigration over 2018-2021. The significant change has been noticed. It’s in not having similar values towards human life, despite protests. Valuing human life is not a priority. Overreaction, personal contests and a comparison of living environments, wealth and social status dominate. A person’s race, sexual preference and forcefully changing their sexual orientation is now a concern. The current political environment is a expression of vulnerability and uncertainty for women, in an era of abuse and changing cultural environments.


An Expression of a Value
The modern day symbol of Marilyn recognizes the femininity of different women from different cultures.
The feminine is expressed as beauty and confidence but it should be without slander. It’s interesting
that the Cowboy symbol has never been blamed for the on-going threat and abuse of the feminine
female.

An Addict’s Affair

Publication date: May 2022

Living two different lives is a contradiction. Now there’s a trend of using weaknesses for entertainment. It’s often an exaggerated drama, with scandalous hysteria, it’s self-centred and about themselves. A scandalous event is orchestrated about what is not there.

The average person is not a role, there is no role play. There are actors and actresses who want to be the centre of attention. They must have publicity. When they assume a different persona, they are usually at the end of their careers, but use it to stay to be relevant. Their original persona becomes a lie. This affects the lives of their cast and audience. Once the boundary between a performer and an audience has been crossed, they want to rival them as rivals and competitors. There is mass criticism, they are not genuine. Performers cannot dictate their popularity to an audience.

There is a spiteful malice about what entertainers are willing to do to be at the top of the entertainment industry. Their biggest challenge is how to keep their place.

The Act of Addiction

Publication date: May 2022

Recently there has been alot of news about the double lives of many actors and actresses. Do they have a have a fake persona?

Does wealth change reality? We presume that it does. It’s a sad story that some actors and actresses become convicted with offences for molestation, attempted murder, financial fraud and most recently killing contests.

Using someone’s or a peer’s public reputation for influence is stealing from someone. Credentials cannot be bought. Fake actors and actresses are living in a fake environment. The public and the industry doesn’t not prefer you. It’s surprising that there is this much over-confidence that actors and actresses can influence who is in and out of the industry. What leads them to use someone’s credentials? It’s a presumption to presume that their audience prefer them. A lot of people in the acting industry prefer them not to live in the real world.

We are real people, not a two level hierarchy where there actors and actresses are at the top.

Manipulating normal people during and after their conviction is usual they presume that their opinion is not important. Their manipulation is because of their addiction to publicity, drug and alcohol addiction and egotism. This is made worse because of egotism, financial debt and fame. Their offence affects the way that we perceive them. Some live contradictory lives, they are dangerous performers and outside of the TV studio.

We can be guaranteed that their manners and approach to acting will affect the popularity that they have.
