Why are there not many resources on contemporary entertainers/musicians?


Most of the resources available on contemporary (21st century) entertainers/musicians are not of an academic nature; they are geared more to their celebrity status and fan audience, than of a scholarly approach. Many times these websites may include inappropriate pictures, language or offensive lyrics.

The biographical type resources that are truly academic in nature are usually not done until a person has died. So, finding great educational resources on current entertainers is a very difficult task.

There are some exceptions such as Denzel Washington, Leontyne Price, Oprah Winfrey and others that have limited educational resources about their lives. These individuals are included in netTrekker.
