To become a celebrity means to become public. A celebrity looses the privacy of the personal life because the public have interest on the celebrity’s life no matter the size of the issue. This is the prize of fame of most celebrities.
When an announcement is made public on the situation of a celebrity in any point in time in his life, a thin line separates the announcement as news from being a gossip.
In general, news is a statement or information on any developments involving issues, activities and personalities in a certain period of time. News may be communicated through the radio, the daily newspapers, television, or simply through daily conversation.
Well, gossips about celebrities are also communicated using the same media. Recent years with the development of networking through the internet, gossips have gained more grounds on the net and simple daily conversations than any other form of media. Most of the gossips revolve on specific issues of celebrity personalities.
News, on the contrary, does not dwell on a specific issue on one person alone, but covers anything and everything from current developments in business, government affairs, global warming, arts, science and technology.
Gossip and news may be differentiated particularly on the information they intend to communicate. News are present on a simple report with supporting materials to support the facts, while gossip does not provide any proof, but more of conjectures.
Clearly, gossips are based on unconfirmed information from what people say or have said about celebrities.
With uncensored and unplanned pictures and videos taken of celebrities and presented to the public as it developed, paparazzi bring the gossips on celebrities to a brand new level.
Often, a story that a picture exists and that this picture is being distributed on the net for everyone to see spreads like wildfire during hot summer days. As the picture gets viewed by more people, the discussion on the same topic grows and changes into a scandalous gossip.

It’s truly incredible what a professional makeup artist can do given time and unlimited funds. This is why so many of our famous Hollywood celebrities will often give the appearance of never aging, having no flaws or are just generally dazzling in a way that the great majority of us can never achieve.
Even the most dedicated Celebrity will occasionally let the mask slip and often as not, a Paparazzi or other photographer (heck, maybe even a fan) will be around to snap a quick picture.
These hastily grabbed pictures can serve as a valuable reminder to us all that Celebrities are human after all. Complete with flaws! It seems fair to me that if modern women are always held in comparison to these icons of beauty that we should be reminded from time to time that they don’t get that way without great expense and a helping hand from the illusionary abilities of great makeup.
We are all becoming increasingly concerned with how young ladies and teenagers are bombarded with images of perfect celebrities and stars. In many cases a heavy does of Photoshop will have been used also. By having these unrealistic expectations to compare themselves to, many vulnerable females are being made to feel unworthy, un-sexy, fat, frumpy or even unwanted. This is unfair to say the least. How the average developing woman can keep her self-esteem up while surrounded by these modified and unrealistic images we are not sure.
It’s like competing in a race where one side has multiple advantages. How can the other compete?
That’s why it’s healthy to remind young girls that these images are simply not reality. They are cropped, touched up and worked on by image editing professionals. And all that’s after probably hours of careful application and touching up of makeup from professionals who do this for a living. It’s frustrating that an average normal girl has to compete with that.
So as you can see it really does no harm to see Celebrities without makeup on. It help keep us grounded and our expectations more realistic. Every single Celebrity is also a human being with her own mix of personal issues and pressures. With their often chaotic lifestyles I’m sure the truth is they don’t get as much sleep as the rest of us and have stress in ways we can only imagine. This of course leads to their bodies showing signs of fatigue, whether it’s acne, spots, bags under eyes etc. There’s nothing wrong with reassuring ourselves that the perfect picture they paint isn’t the read deal and we should all be more forgiving of our small imperfections in the future. At the end of the day the only person you are competing against is yourself!
First, not to discourage anyone, but are you really sure you want to be famous? First consider the following nearly universal drawbacks of fame:
Stalkers. Famous people can be an easy target for obsessive fans and people who live vicariously through the lives of others. This is a chance that all famous people know they are taking.
Lack of trust in your relationships. Once you are famous, you may never be able to fully trust people again because it is quite possible or even probable that they may be around you purely because you are famous.
Jealousy. People may seem to hate you for no reason, especially online where bashing celebrities is many people’s favorite past-time.
Hangers-on. You will constantly have people approaching you whether it is just to meet you, get your autograph, take a picture, hang out with you to try to become famous themselves, etc.
Viewed under magnifying glass. Imagine you make a small mistake in your life as your life is now. Now imagine that mistake broadcast to the entire world and everyone you know will find out about it. This could include divorce, saying something inadvertently offensive, or anything else you might be able to imagine. News travels fast in the celebrity world and people love gossip.
No Privacy. This one is pretty obvious but still important to consider. It could get very annoying that you will all but give up your privacy. Paparazzi, publicists, agents, producers, everyone will want a piece of you and a piece of the pie. It can get very tiring!
With that said, HOWEVER, obviously fame has its perks!
The pros include wealth, often extreme wealth beyond your wildest dreams! No worries about bills, debts, cars, fine homes, all of it is the finest and most luxurious in the world. How fabulous!
People will go crazy over you. This is the ultimate in ego satisfaction! You will receive special treatment more often than not, no matter where you go or what you do. Despite all your wealth, you can expect regular “freebies” for most of your favorite products and services. In addition, your fans will look up to you and you will have an influence over people that you never had before.
Sooooooo, if you still want to be famous after considering the pros and cons, there are many resources available to help you along in your search.
HOW TO BECOME FAMOUS:
Here are some ideas to get you started:
Be the absolute best at something, almost anything will do as long as you are the best. In theory you can also do the reverse and be truly awful at something, just humiliate your way into the book of world records or become known on a reality TV show for how awful you are. This type of fame tends to be more fleeting but for a while you will enjoy being recognized just for being terrible at something if you are in the right place at the right time and you are bad enough. With that said, most people would rather achieve fame for an actual talent, so if you have something close to one, hone it until you can proudly say you are one of the best and then show it off whenever and wherever you can!
Be the first to achieve something major and great. This could be anything from curing a disease to inventing a very useful item that finds its way into homes everywhere.
Be generous. Overly so if you can afford to. People will seek you out simply for donations and you will be admired for your selflessness. Just make sure you hire a publicist to let everyone know how kind you are!
Networking with who you know and getting to know more people. Become a “people person” and network, network, network! Surely there is someone at least moderately famous in your area. Can you approach them somehow? Is there a service they may need or anything you can provide? For free perhaps? Sometimes people become famous by association with someone who is already famous and the payoff will come as the connections gradually expand to other famous people and opportunities.
Become an actor. Auditions are easy to come by and you can start on any level. If you are good, you may get a role in something! A similar but somewhat obvious idea is to try modeling if you are lucky enough to be young and beautiful.
Volunteer. At the right places of course! Try to snag an internship at a movie company or a record label. Assist an agent, publicist, or producer. The possibilities are endless as everyone loves free labor!
Believe in yourself. You will never become famous or indeed succeed at anything if you don’t believe it is possible first. The more confidence you have, the more that will show and it will help you become famous when you meet the right people to help along the way.
Write a book. If you can write a bestseller and sell the movie rights, you will almost certainly become famous as a result!
Are you funny? Become a comedian. Lots of comedians are famous even if they aren’t that funny.
Do you like politics? Get involved! Run for a local government position and see where it leads you. Politicians are famous.
Do you like sports? Get involved! Try out for local teams. Or work with sports stars in any capacity and you can become famous by your association with them.
Find an agent. Whether you are an athlete, actor, musician, writer, inventor, performer, or almost anything else, chances are you will need someone to help you make the right contacts and take the right steps. This is where an agent in your particular niche can become an extremely valuable helper! Even if you start with a lesser known agent and work your way up to a more influential one, having an agent will almost always expose you to better opportunities than you could find on your own.
Are you talented at something? Anything at all? Determine what your highest and best talent is and build on it as much as humanly possible. Hire a publicist if you can afford to to get the word out about how talented you are at your particular talent. And post yourself on YouTube performing your particular talent. Send the link everywhere you can, whether in your signature line at forums, on Facebook, etc. Do this wherever and whenever you can.
Marry someone famous. This may sound easier said than done, but remember the more famous people you can hang out with, the greater the likelihood that you will end up dating or marrying one of them. To achieve this, you may have to relocate to a city where there are a lot of famous people, such as Los Angeles, CA or New York, NY. Use the gyms that celebrities use, eat at restaurants where they eat, shop where they shop, visit bars and clubs where they party, etc. If you can’t afford to go to the same places celebrities visit, then get a job there and the celebrities will literally come to you!
Persist. Above all, and whatever you do, don’t quit. Very few people become famous “overnight” and most worked years to get to where they are today. If you quit, you will not become famous.
Above all, do NOT be too pushy or desperate as people can see this and it will turn off almost everyone!
