Introduction

Compare how the representation of celebrities reinforces or undermines their celebrity status in your two chosen tabloid newspapers. I am going to focus on two tabloid newspapers, the Daily Mail and the Daily Mirror by comparing and contrasting on how the representation of celebrities reinforces or undermines their celebrity status.
