What is Entertaiment?


Entertaiment — is everything that elicits amusement and enjoyment. It is a broad genre of culture that encompasses all forms of art and popular media, including movies, television shows, music, sports, books, fashion, video games, and live performance. Entertainment is characterized by its audience-centered commercial culture, which keeps individuals amused, engaged, and diverted from the realities of their daily lives. The cultural form of entertainment has a strong capacity for crossover, and familiar themes, images, and structures have demonstrated a seemingly unlimited potential for creative remix.
