|摘要:||Celebrity singer worship transcends social hierarchies. The celebrity singer image is a construct including the facets of being professional, stylish, diverse and renowned, created and evoked in consumers' minds to differentiate a brand and influence consumers' brand preference. However, there is no existing scale in the extant literature for measuring celebrity singer image. In this study, image-related theory and literature were reviewed, and a celebrity singer image scale developed based on the second-order structure with the first-order dimensions of expertise, design, versatility and fame. Reliability and construct validity were demonstrated for the scale obtained. The second-order celebrity singer image was hypothesised to influence several relational bonds - attachment, satisfaction, trust and commitment, and purchase intention. The hypotheses were all supported, achieving criterion-related validity. Managerial implications on building and enhancing celebrity singer image are specifically discussed.|
