"Imperfection" is the new trend in show business

In the 20th century, especially in the 50s and 60s, perfection was a kind of prerequisite for being famous on TV and in movies. Great actresses like Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor or Audrey Hepburn, were an ode to snowy beauty. But today, this has changed.

In the 20th century, especially in the 50s and 60s, perfection was a kind of prerequisite for being famous on TV and in movies. Great actresses like Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor or Audrey Hepburn, were an ode to snowy beauty. But today, this has changed.

Since the appearance of social networks, and the star-fan interaction, the closeness has made them increasingly "vulnerable" and human, with virudes, talents, but also with defects and, why not, chubby.

Photographs of singers and actresses "natural", without a drop of makeup, or with natural eyebrows, have become increasingly common and the public is delighted with it. In addition, it is no longer necessary to be 100% good, on the contrary, the closer to earth you are, the better valued the artist is.

You don't have to be a living Ken, either, although there are, of course. But the not-so-handsome men seem to be a little more attainable for fans.

In Latin America, for example, whose population is the product of miscegenation, a perfectly slim figure, and above all with almost no rearguard, is not so common.

The villain is the new super hero

And the roles of good and bad were also in the past. Now, among the most famous characters in world series such as "The Paper House", "The Black List" or "Game of Thrones", there are a few villains, who, like in real life, have their good side.

And this tendency to humanize the world of showbussines, also touches classic characters like Superman, who has undergone an adaptation and humanization to make it "not so good".

The tendency to imperfection seems irreversible. It is as natural as life itself. Gone are Marylin, Audrye and Elizabeth, with their perfect hairstyles and porcelain complexions. In the 21st century, impecfection is the rule. What do you think?
