Cairns Culture

When we went out to dinner on the first night in Cairns, I had noticed that the music playing was Kanye West. After about three songs in a row by Kanye, our waitress came up and engaged us in a conversation about the recent celebrity news of Kanye and Kim having a child together. I thought it was interesting how American celebrity culture has a worldwide effect like that, especially because I don’t even care about this kind of news. The influence America has on the world not only through politics and the economy, but also through the entertainment industry is important to take into consideration. At Elon we are taught to leave a global influence. For us in the entertainment industry, it was a little more difficult to think globally in the aspect and perspective we are taught in global studies classes. It is important to consider how we portray ourselves in our entertainment products.
