Since the dawn of time, society has craved the idea of entertainment. It provides a sense of content and happiness to the recipient. In modern times, people everywhere are dependent on music and the new TV series on Netflix. The savants of the rap and acting game are seen as more to people than they really are. Not only do celebrities want to branch out their talents to increase fan support, but celebrities see it as a financial incentive as well.
