Answer on Teens - Would you answer this survey for me please?

Gender: Female

Q1) Have you ever wanted to be famous at least one time in your life? Yes.

Q2) Do you think you have ever been influenced by a celebrity? How did this affect your life? Not really. I always used to read those magazines like Bop and Pop Star and I would want to look or have the lives of certain celebrities, but I never actually acted differently because of a celebrity.

Q3) Have you ever had an eating disorder due to celebrity life? Have you ever followed any celebrity diets? No and no.

Q4) Which celebrity do you consider a good role model? Honestly, I don't really follow any celebrities. But I think Zooey Deschanel is pretty good as celebrities go, as well as maybe Anne Hathaway and Reese Witherspoon. As far as younger celebrities, most of the Nick (Miranda Cosgrove, etc.) ones seem okay... excluding Jamie Lynn Spears.

Q5) Have you ever had a celebrity obsession? Which celebrity and for how long? No. I mean, I've liked celebrities of course, but never at a level above just thinking they were hot and knowing some random facts about them.

Q6) Out of 10, 10 being the highest, how happy are you with your body and looks? Maybe a 6? I'm not super self-conscious and I'm not unhappy with my body, I just know that I could be healthier and put a little more effort into my morning routine.

Q7) What one word would you describe skinny celebrities in adverts, magazines etc...especially fashion models? Skinny.

Q8) Do you think that current music and music videos are getting too explicit and unsuitable, especially to the younger audience? I think so. I'm sorry, but no matter how much skin Lady Gaga shows "in the name of art", there are certain things that just aren't appropriate.

Q9) Can you name one music artist who you think has crossed the boundaries between "acceptable" and "explicit," from the clothes they wear to what they do? Um... Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan, Britney Spears... a lot of them.

Q10) Do you think reality TV shows are a good way to become famous? Not really. I think some are more respectable than others though... I mean, I'd rather not be known for being on Jersey Shore. That is, if you can even call it reality.
