It took me a while to decide on my star image as I am not necessarily interested in the typical and obvious icons in the music industry, for example lady Gaga and Cheryl Cole who are clear style icons. I chose the Arctic Monkeys because I am interested in Indie and Rock music and this band has always stuck openly to its image.
Arctic Monkeys currently consist of four members; Alex Turner; Jamie Cook; Nick O'Malley and Matt Helders. This English indie rock band formed in 2002 in a suburb in Sheffield. Their debut album 'Whatever You Say I Am, That's what I'm Not' was released in 2006 and was actually the fastest selling debut album in British music history. The band have released three albums in total the other two being, 'Favourite Worst Nightmare'(2007) and 'Humbug'(2009). The reason for Arctic Monkeys causing such a massive sensation upon their arrival to the music scene was because they were one of the first bands to become noticed due to the internet. Which ultimately changed the way music is promoted today.
The band have been very likable with their image based on sticking to their roots especially with Alex Turners coming through predominantly when he sings. The band love showing that their down to earth and don't let the fame go to their heads.
In 2008 the arctic monkeys arrived at the Brits in a sort of shepherds look with flat-caps and tweed. They won the award for Best British Album and came up to accept the award very drunk with pipes in their mouth which epitomises their image.
