1. Who is your favourite celebrity in your country?
I guess not only me, but a number of young people have also been highly impressed by her for the past months- Deshauna Barber. She is our 2016 Miss USA and the representative of the USA in Miss Universe taking place in Las Vegas in the same year. After the beauty contests, she became well-known for her outstanding beauty, her amazing characteristics and also her professionalism.

2. Do you like any foreign celebrities?
Absolutely. The person I’m gonna talk about is my bias ever since I was a teenage girl-Miley Cyrus. I guess most people at the same age as I, grew up with Disney Channel and among its successful series, Hannah Montana starring Miley Cyrus would always be on top of my list. Although now she’s grown up, I’m still a big fan of her amazing voice and highly inspiring songs.
Bias (n) A concentration on our interest in one particular area or subject.
To be on top of the list (expression) to be the highest priority
To be a (big/huge/avid) fan of (expression) to admire SO
3. Would you like to be a celebrity? Why?
Well though I’ve never thought about it, I’m pretty sure that rising to stardom would never be one of my life goals. I appreciate all the efforts that the celebrities, no matter which field they’re working on, are making every single day. However, I find myself not belonging to that world, I mean, you never know what’s going on when the curtains close, right? So yeah, I don’t think I want to become a public figure, to be honest.
No matter (adv): without much worries
To appreciate (v): Recognize the full worth of/To be grateful of Sth
What’s going on when the curtains close (phrase): the secrets lie behind the showbiz
To rise to stardom (expression): to become famous
Public figure (np): a well-known and notable person
4. Do you think we should protect famous people’s privacy?
Indeed. As you probably can tell, these days fans, anti-fans and even non-fans are so curious about what their bias is doing. Some are aggressive that they mentally attack their bias by leaving bad comments online. Some even approach them in person on the street, especially the so-called paparazzi. Thus I strongly agree that there should be some regulations to protect the celebrities’ privacy.
Bias (n): prejudice in favour of or against one thing, person, or group compared with another
So-called (adj) used to introduce a new word or phrase that is not yet known by many people
Paparazzi (n) a freelance photographer, especially one who takes candid pictures of celebrities for publication.
5. How do celebrities influence their fans in your country?
I think the influence of celebrities on fans is extensive. It’s somehow natural to follow our bias and try to be like them. At the first place, it could probably be just physical changes like clothing, hairstyle or makeup. However thanks to the social network, fans and idols are much closer now, sometimes it’s just a status away. However, this mental connection is a two-edged sword, meaning the idols actually need to be more careful about their lifestyle or their manners.
physical changes (n): changes in appearance
two-edged sword (idiom): pros and cons
