Comment les fans réagissent-ils lors du décès de la célébrité ? Usages des communications et des médias sociaux dans le deuil de Michael Jackson

Abstract : The authors conducted a qualitative survey of Michael Jackson fans' reactions to his death and their subsequent communication practices in order to better understand certain psychological and social aspects of fandom. They examine the uses of and roles played by interpersonal communications and social media during the period of mourning. Their analysis shows that a celebrity can play a socio-emotional mediating role between a fan and a loved one. The death of a celebrity brings up new identity needs among fans and, correlatively, new and different roles played by the social media during the period of mourning and the process of identity realignment according to the existing identity (individual, group or social) of the fans.
