Article About Entertaiment
The word entertainment may imply light-heartedness or even frivolity, but many types of entertainment have serious intent, such as ceremonies, religious festivals, or satire. It is also possible for an event to be entertaining while also serving some other purpose, such as providing information or teaching.
Entertainment is consumer activity that is understood objectively, encompasses communication between text and audience from an external stimulus, offers pleasure to the audience, requires audience passivity and occurs in a form recognizable by the consumer (Bates and Ferri 2010). It can be found in all forms of media and culture – from a single individual purchasing a pre-recorded music product to fill their iPod with, to a global theatrical performance intended for millions. The ability of entertainment to transcend media has ensured its continued relevance and enduring popularity.
