Popularity Is Not an Obligation for a Person to Serve as a Role Model

Popularity alone does not oblige a person to be a public role model. It depends on the popular person's profession. For instance, I don't regard, expect, or oblige celebrities or artists to serve as role models for the masses because their actual profession or purpose is to entertain or give art, performance, or music.

Popular people whom I expect to serve as role models include politicians (because they are the lawmakers and the vanguard of a country and its people's public interest), religious leaders (because they are supposedly the moral vanguards of their respective flocks), and teachers (because they are the ones teaching students and providing them the basic education).

And, foremost of course, lest I forget--the parents themselves should be the ones who should be obliged to serve as role models for their own children and they should be the ones explaining all these things to them.
