In Margaret Mead’s theory she states that culture shapes personality. In the realm of pop culture people choose what types of aspects are shown to be valuable. In popular music, people, especially women, are chosen by their looks. If a woman does not have the “star quality look” she will not be considered for the big stage. Putting value on the quality of beauty in our culture shapes how people act. Many people see beauty as a way to succeed. They become self-involved and believe their actions don’t matter because beauty is valued instead of a friendly personality. In America shaping the music industry to be about beauty reflects how much value people put into beauty.
