Rockstars and Fans

Learnex, English Forever ¡Aprende Inglés para Siempre!

The relationship the rockstars have with their fans is a complex one, but what is a fan? By definition, a fan is a person who is interested in and spends a lot of time watching or reading about a certain topic. So, by following this definition, we can see that fans are more than just customers. The biggest difference between a customer and a fan is that the rockstars actually care about their followers, they see them as people they love and want to be involved with.

The certain bond rockstars have with their fans, and fans have among themselves, makes them a community, more than just a business relationship. A new concept we can get from this is the Fandom, this concept refers specifically to the group of fans who are very enthusiastic and loyal to their interest.

This kind of interactions keeps both the rockstar and their fans close, so the understanding they have is far deeper than that of a business relationship. The fans feel the love and care the rockstar has for them, and this makes it easier for them to relate, trust and consume the artists.

Vocabulary:

  • Certain: specific but not explicitly named or stated.
