Idols and icons

Idols and icons

When does an idol become an icon and an icon an idol?

Any modern day celebrity is surely both an icon in their existence and an idol by their presence they exist to create and are present by their work and brand or brands. They've been made a brand by becoming an icon and being idolised that brand has allowed them to be felt beyond being seen or heard they can now be worn or smelt via their fragrances or clothing brands.

Coke is an icon yet is so revered and known it could also be an idol it exists and has a global presence it's the same wherever you go the poor drink what the rich drink its affordable and accessible and there's no higher level or lower level you simply get what you're given allowing for a form of equality in one sense or another.
