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!
Celebrities have a huge impact on peoples’ lives in the world today. A lot of people can’t go through one day without checking the web, or their favorite celebrity magazine to read about the latest celebrity gossip, and the most up to the minute juicy tidbit of news about their favorite famous person. Celebrities can range from an actor or actress, singer, writer, movie producer or director, or reality show contestant. There are also people who are famous for “being famous”, such as Paris Hilton and Nicole Ritchie.
Most people just gobble up any item of “news” that they can get about their favorite celebrities. It is too easy to focus on someone else’s problems, so you don’t have to give attention to your own difficulties! What these people don’t think about is the fact that the more they read about and purchase information about these celebrities, the less privacy these people have in their lives. It’s really no wonder that the majority of celebrities out there today mess up do often – they are under a serious amount of pressure!
When someone finally reaches “celebrity status” in today’s world, it is great at first. They start to get recognized on the street every now and again, and every once in a while, they will get a meal for free just because the restaurant owner or manager is a big fan of the television show that they appear on. After a while, however, after they have climbed higher on the celebrity ladder, it gets to be not so much fun for these people. The paparazzi follow them everywhere they go, usually taking very awful and embarrassing pictures that cause fans to think that they are anorexic or pregnant or near death. The paparazzi don’t just follow them on the street, but they also hide in trees near these celebrities’ homes, taking pictures of their private, personal lives and printing them for the entire world to see the next day.
Being in the public eye so much definitely has a huge impact on the personal lives of our celebrities. When you think about it, if you could not leave your house to take a walk, or go to the local café for a latte without being swamped by cameras and reporters, your life wouldn’t be much of a life either! Celebrities also receive phone calls every now and again from worried friends and relatives who see the tabloids in the grocery store and think that their friend or relative is dead or terminally ill, or about to split up with their spouse. The tabloids and magazines pretty much have a 100% record of being completely untrue, but people still worry!
Even when celebrities want to get married, they sometimes have to choose a spouse who is also in the public eye, because when someone is not used to the cameras and craziness, it can be too much for them to handle, along with a new marriage. Also, any person made famous from a movie, Reality TV show or game show who dates a non famous person, cannot help but wonder if their significant other would want to be with them if they were not a celebrity. When celebrities do get married and have children, life is harder for their families as well because of their parents’ celebrity status.

We know that the lives of the celebrities provide fodder celebrity gossip sites. The celeb gossip columns move in ebb and tide, resonating with the influence of the personal lives, achievements and involvements of the celebrities. But this flow is not a one-way movement. There are times when the entertainment news sites and publications make a strong impact on the lives of the celebrities. And then you find that the real world is being controlled and even dictated by the power of the written word. That’s when you begin to assess the true impact of what is written in the paparazzi scoop columns.
Let us study this strange phenomenon with an example. We know the celebrity gossip sites publish news and update that deal with their personal lives. Sometimes celeb gossip sites move away from their point of focus and depend on unreliable sources of information. They pass off distorted facts as paparazzi scoops. Reputed entertainment news sites cannot wash their hands off this blame. If they carry a story about an extramarital affair that is just not there, the spouse or the partner of the persons in question may be tempted to believe the story, coming as it is from authentic sources of information. The scandal sees the light of the day and nothing remains the same anymore.
Another example of celebrity gossip sites controlling real life is when the celebs have something nasty to say about their peers. More often than not, the comments made by the celebrity are blown out of proportion by the celeb gossip sites. Then there is a war of words on the entertainment news portals. And what could have been solved amicably between closed doors suddenly becomes a media circus. When these things happen, relationships are sometimes damaged for life. There have been break-ups and splits because the truth in some of these supposed paparazzi scoops are not so true after all.
Another way in which celebrity gossip sites affect celeb life is by getting them to know the whereabouts and actions of each other. If any celeb pays close attention to the celeb gossip sites, they can easily find out what their persons of interest are doing. They instantly know who is dating whom and who their exes are! This information bank is sometimes necessary when you want to get into a commitment with a celebrity. Entertainment news portals help other celebs in this rather bizarre way! But all is not lost because celebs also know the power and reach of these paparazzi scoop portals. They use these sites without any qualms when it comes to promoting their films and talking about their upcoming projects. It’s all on how you want to see it, because accept it or not, celebrity gossip sites are now part of the legitimate media.
Excerpt from: Celebrity Gossip – Effect on Celeb Life
Paparazzi have become a stable part of today’s media. If a celebrity’s aiming to have a private Santa Barbara wedding, you can be sure there will be paparazzi there waiting. At every destination wedding photographers will have their cameras out and ready to get a shot of the happy couple. While the nature of invading ones privacy would come as morally questionable to most of the public, members of the paparazzi are forever looking for photographs that could land those millions of dollars. When this kind of money is in question, issues of morality and ethics tend to take a backseat.
While it could be expected that tabloid journalists would feel a pang of guilt for their behavior, most see themselves as fulfilling a desire from the public. This can hardly be denied, as the popularity of magazines that sell photographs of celebrities without make-up, out with their family or, indeed, getting married is staggering. These images allow readers to move past the heavily made-up, airbrushed and generally “fake” celebrities, and see that those we idolize as somehow above us are human after all.
The invention of the internet seems to have increased the popularity of tabloid journalism. While newspapers are slowly suffering an increasingly bleak loss in sales, many reporters of substantial news stories have been put out of work. For those who provide celebrity gossip and photos, however, there remains plenty of work available, and even respected newspapers have tabloid journalism at the forefront of their websites. The question of why this is can be answered easily: The lives of celebrities attract greater numbers of readers.
Consider the big weddings in recent times such as Brad and Angelina, Tom and Kate, Jennifer and Ben. The bride and groom at each of these weddings took extreme care to control the media presence at these events. In fact, these celebrities saw it fit to take control of the way their wedding is portrayed, agreeing to only certain reporters having access to their wedding, and having these reporters agree to a set version of events to take back to the news desk.
This control of the media has become necessary due to the pressure celebrities feel to provide information to their fans. Each of the three couples mentioned above also took it upon themselves to release a few pre-approved photos of their weddings to the media, in order to placate their need for images of the event, and to lessen the value of paparazzi images that may have been taken.
The nature of the paparazzi today has become unnecessarily invasive. The deeper issue that needs to be considered here, however, is why there is the desire of “normal” individuals to peer into the private lives of others. As long as this need is in place, the paparazzi will always have an audience of paying customers. So long as the money is there, someone will be willing to go into uncertain ethical territory, in order to get the massive payday on offer.
Excerpt from: The Role of the Paparazzi in Celebrity Weddings
Fame can be costly at times. The wide range of celebrity gossip sites provide proof of the fact that people like talking and knowing about celebrities. The vast popularity of the celeb gossip portals see a lot of traffic each day, asserting it that people love to read about them and be updates. Entertainment news sites are coming up every other day to keep you posted on what is happening in tinsel town. But this life is something that gets under the skin of the celebrities. They complain that their every little act or the lack of it is reported in the columns.
Celebrities have a major complaint against the celebrity gossip portals. The complaint is simple: they need to be left alone when they want their private moments to remain so. Celeb gossip sites are in no mood to relent because trespassing into the private lives of the celebrities is their bread and butter. They are only feeding an insatiable demand of the readers of the entertainment news columns. Nothing makes these portals tick than inside scoops about what is happening behind the scenes. The paparazzi would give an arm and a leg for a shot of a celebrity hanging around with an extra-marital partner.
The debate boils down to the basics: are celebrity gossip sites the price that celebrities pay. There are some celebrities who like to take the celeb gossip sites in their stride. They shrug them off with the comment that they worked hard to get noticed, so they don’t have any problem with the paparazzi taking pictures of them at random. Many of these celebrities are accustomed to their private moments being splashed all over the newsprint and the internet. They have grown used to the fact and they can live around with this lack of privacy as necessary evil.
Come to think of it, celebrity gossip sites do things the right way, when there is an opportunity. If you are an entertainment news junkie, you know that there are these times when the celeb gossip sites pay the celebrity for shots of their wedding or even of their newborns. Sometimes the celebs relent and they make tons of dough on the deals of the pictures. There are other times when the celebrity decides to keep things under wraps. That’s when the reporters working on the beat decide to get adventurous. They think of ways to crack open the security ring that the celebrities throw upon themselves.
A famous case is when Catherina Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas got married. Despite the millions of dollars and the police and the private security protecting them from the paparazzi, and each guest personally welcomed by the marriage planner himself with the help of an undisclosed security code, an ingenuous person still got in and took snaps! The celebrity gossip magazine that published the pictures got sued but this set an historical example that no celebrity and no event was away from the infiltration of celeb gossip reporters!
The world has always lived vicariously through the lives of the rich and famous and it brings us joy to share their lives and their successes. There are thousands of entertainment magazines and newspapers available in the market and there is always room for more. The public never gets tired of hearing about what celebrities are doing, whether it is good or bad. We have the paparazzi and they provide exciting photos of the private life of the Hollywood Elite, they are able to photograph stars openly and in their most private moments and the public wants to see it all.
However, there is a thin line between wanting to be entertained by celebrity news and invading celebrity’s private lives. Of course, they are famous and they are well aware that their lives are the center of everyone’s attention, but does that give the public the right to need to know about everything personal to them.
Celebrity news will inform you of what they eat, what type of exercise they do; if any and what they enjoy doing in their private time and with whom they spend their private time. Filming movies and television shows is one thing, but they did not sign any releases to have their private home lives filmed, did they? No matter what my opinion is; it is still exciting to know how they live and how they spend their money, we are even happy for them when they marry and have children. I guess not all of the publicity is all-bad, there are some wonderful moments that the public gets to share with these celebrities, whether they want to share them or not.
TV ratings show that celebrity news shows receive the highest ratings, more than any of their sitcoms or series, people are more entertained by the excitement of the lime light, and we want to know how the famous are spending their money and what kind of trouble our celebrities are getting into. The lives of the rich and the famous will always hold our attention and we will always find happiness through their success. If you are interested in staying updated with what celebrities all over the world, you can stay in touch online, at any of the various online celebrity news websites or pick up an entertainment magazine from your nearest convenient store. No matter how you want to stay updated, updates are always available.

Celebrities have a mesmerizing personality charisma. Fans, followers, journalists, paparazzi and even the critics want to know each and every thing in the life of celebrities. What they are up to, where they hang out, what are the projects they are working on, why they behave like this and like that! The quest never ends. Newspapers and television programs try their best to hunt for the latest sizzling celebrity news, hot and happening celebrity photos and spicy celebrity gossips.
People are fascinated about the glamour and glory of the world of celebrities. This is the life of ease and comfort with all the amenities, name and fame; this is what they think. Fans look at their heroes as if they were the denizens from some other world or the stars descended upon the earth.
But this is only the other side of the celebrity world. Celebrities don’t attain the dizzy heights of eminence overnight. Scores of years of relentless efforts, diligence and perseverance are what make a celebrity. So many compromises and adjustments they have to make. Most of the celebrities in the world have made their way through out of nothing. Sometimes they may have trampled down someone else as well to achieve what they wanted to. Even when enjoying the fruits of success, these famous personalities have to go through many ordeals.
It may be taken as a harsh fact or some may even call it the necessity of the celeb life. Many of these celebrities have at least two faces; one for a public display and the other a private one. You can get my point if you have a look at some of the exclusive celebrity pictures available.
For example a photo showing Angelina Jolie in some casual moments and the other one showing her in Kashmir (India) with simple folks or a pick capturing contemplative Charlize Theron in Johannesburg and the other one showing her in Malibu posing for paparazzi will prove the point. These celebrities too are the human beings with all feelings and sensations awake. Their public life makes them put a mask of mannerism on their faces. But actually many of these celebrities yearn for a simple quiet life.
Are these celebrities allowed a single moment privacy? Hardly they are. Always sought after by the paparazzi, they can hardly be all themselves. That’s what makes them famous; but after a few years these personalities start asking themselves a grave question: “Is my life worth living?” Imagine what Lindsay Lohan must have gone through when the media went trailing her around when she was drinking and when her lose fitting halter top and a forceful breeze made her even go topless before the world. What an embarrassment for her!
The world of fashion for instance, has got its own evil face. If a model wants to elbow her way through in this field, he/ she will have to please many in every way possible. That’s what is called a struggle in simple words. When we read the news about the sex scandals and mental tortures in the celebrity world, it should make this other black side visible.
The huge amassment of wealth is yet another major concern for the celebrities. How to spend this money becomes the problem. Celebrities lose their peace of mind. And then comes the news of some superstar sniffing drugs, indulging in wanton sexual pleasures or getting arrested for some illegal activities. Paris Hilton, Britney Spears, Michael Jackson are proof enough.
No one is completely white or completely black. We all are gray. People make a mistake in expecting their heroes to be perfect in every possible manner. Celebrities, too, do have their own flaws and frailties. They remain unnoticed and this becomes the reason enough for someone like me to reveal the real truth about celebrities.

Colin Drummond, the former Producer of TMZ Celebrity News is a leader in the entertainment industry with extensive experience in film production, prominent business connections and a penchant and knack for capturing the everyday actions of fascinating people in the public eye. Drummond is now CEO and founder of a recently launched entertainment news agency dedicated to distributing photographs, video and humanistic news stories about politicians, and celebrities in the Washington, DC arena and worldwide.
Who makes the headlines and how does an entertainment news agency provide up-to-the-minute exclusive video and photos of headlining politicians, celebrities and public officials? Dorothy Dutch asked probing questions of Colin Drummond to get to the heart of the paparazzi phenomena. For those of us who unabashedly enjoy flipping through celebrity photo stories on line or off, it can be even more satisfying if we understand the world of the candid camera.
This interview session is aimed at the journalists who give us our daily doses of unethical behavior, celebrity photos, gossip, news articles, and entertainment news even before prime time entertainment shows enter our living rooms. Drummond’s answers offer a surprising eye view of a world behind the candid cameras of the paparazzi.
Dorothy Dutch: Are paparazzi also writers or mainly just photographers?
Colin Drummond: Most are photographers or former photographers who go on to start their own agencies. They work at a day rate (standard pay for a day). This is known as freelancing. It’s better for them because they still own their images or videos. Most paparazzi are freelance photographers who work for agencies who sell their photos and the agency takes a cut. A good agency has a strong sales team and can get photos on T.V. shows, magazines, billboards, and even inside movie marketing material.
DD: What qualifications must a paparazzo have?
CD: A pap has to have workable camera equipment, knowledge of celebrities, know how to take photos, and be able to ask great questions. For equipment they need plenty of camera gear, a fast SLR camera, a few good lens, (very costly) and a HD Video camera.
DD: Can anyone do it?
CD: Yes and No. Anyone can get lucky and capture a great picture by being in the right place at the right time, but doing it day after day requires hard work and dedication to your craft. DD: The paparazzi are perceived as “pests” to be avoided because they will do anything to get a picture. Are they that bad?
CD: Not really. Those who have been in the business for awhile have good relationships with all the celebrities. They usually know how close they can get to someone or who they need to use their long lens on.
DD: Is it true that they will literally provoke a subject into anger in order to get a more candid, unflattering shot and if not, why do you think the paparazzi are so disliked that fights break out?
CD: No. Fights are usually initiated by overzealous bodyguards or hangers on who really don’t understand the business and think they are helping the stars out. There have been times when bodyguards have even been fired for getting too aggressive
DD: What stars and famous people have you photographed who actually enjoy working with the paparazzi?
CD: Hands down, Tom Cruise, Kim Kardashian, Paris Hilton, Hugh Jackman, Larry King.
DD: Which celebrities do you know who want to avoid them?
CD: Gwenyth Paltrow, Scarlett Johanson, Cameron Diaz, Jennifer Aniston, Cher, Barbara Streisand DD: Do politicians on the Washington scene resist photographers?
CD: No, at first politicos didn’t understand the paparazzi game in DC, but now they realize they are public figures and since technology has evolved they should try to use it to their advantage.
DD: Is it different following high level political figures than it is to photograph film and television stars?
CD: Yes, they often look at you as if to ask, “Why are you taking my photo on the streets? I’m no celebrity.” But these days all politicians know they have to be visual to appeal to the younger market and to represent their districts. Some are even flattered that their constituents are seeing them in magazines.
DD: If an agency covers a geographic area like Washington, DC, do the paparazzi follow the celebs and politicians as they leave town or go out of the country?
CD: Not necessarily, but if a politician has a great (hot) story, you can bet that he or she will be tailed. The freelance photographer will pay for his or her own transportation, but if working with an agency, the agency will pay airfare, food and lodging.
DD: Are paparazzi invited to any major events or do they just have to wait around outside until all the celebrities enter or emerge?
CD: Some moonlight and shoot red carpet events, but the real hard core photographers don’t like these functions because they are controlled situations and the photos aren’t worth as much as candid street photos.
DD: I have also heard that they do not care about the laws restricting photographs of celebs to public places. They are willing to pay the fines in order to get great shots. Is this generally the case?
CD: This is not usually true because most know that magazines will not buy photos of celebrities in restricted areas. Agencies also prefer to keep their names in good graces with the celebrities and their public relations people, so agencies will not jeopardize that standing.
DD: Can you tell me about a personal experience you have had with a celeb that you will never forget?
Once I was working on Paul McCartney during his huge divorce scandal. As five other paparazzi where waiting outside his house in NYC Paul just walked out and none of the other five saw him leave. I followed him for about a block and then he stopped and posed for me, thinking those where the photos I wanted. I let him walk through Manhattan without photographing him and he went to have dinner. I just waited outside, and then when he came back outside, he said he had given me the photos so why was I still following him. I said, “Sir Paul, I am not taking anymore photos of you out of respect, but I am working on an assignment for a newspaper in London and they want to know everything you do today”. He started laughing and asked me what newspaper it was, and I told him it was The Daily Mail and he laughed again.
DD: Is there competition from the general public (with all the digital cameras) who are submitting great shots to various publications?
CD: Of course, but the difference is, the general public does not consistently know when or have the patience to take the really great shot. Sometimes you have to let the celebrity do something which the public is waiting to see. For example, a new couple who is rumored to be dating but they keep denying it and the general public sees them in the streets out an about. But, the best photo of them would be taken if the photographer knows to wait until they hold hands, or even kiss. Big Money Shot!
DD: Do you have a staff of writers to incorporate the news with the celebrity photos?
CD: Yes we have a few writers, and try to team up our writers within their strengths. One might love music and will write on all the musical artists. Another might love female fashions and would get that story, but most of all everyone is celebrity and political news clued.

While there is a lot of information on the internet, magazines are by no means a dying breed! The beautiful glossy photos, easy-on-the-eyes text, and in-depth exclusives from experts and aficionados have few rivals for pure production quality compared to web sites. From dogs to planes to the outdoors to celebrities to science to a seemingly infinite number of other interests, it’s a guarantee that somewhere there is a magazine about something you love that you’re not subscribing to. With the majority of magazines costing roughly a movie rental or two for an entire year, what are you waiting for? To help you get started, Just Magazines is here with a quick recap of the world of magazines. While the niche topics available are innumerable, magazines tend to fall into four general categories.
If you were to name magazines off of the top of your head, chances are most of the names you recite would fall under “general interest” magazines. Since they are meant to appeal to a wide audience, they tend to be more popular and command rack space at your grocery store. The articles tend to be shorter and an easier read, with many pictures, which is great for getting the feel of popular culture and solid, basic information on important current events. There also tend to be many advertisements, as high circulation means high demand and huge profits for the magazine publishers.
Niche magazines tend to cover specific topics for enthusiasts. Whether you like trains, hot air balloons, popular science, video games, cosmetics, fitness, or a million other things that are about innumerable interests, there’s a magazine about something you love. In-depth articles and exclusive information all financed by companies that provide goods and services related to your interest usually make for some of the best information available on some subjects, often rivaling the world wide web which often cannot compare to magazines in quality, as it makes it more difficult for an organization with paid staff to turn a profit. Not to mention-even the fanciest most expensive monitor on the market just doesn’t hold a candle to the image quality in a glossy, full-color magazine!
There are also scholarly or academic magazines. While niche magazines tend to be more commercially-oriented, these magazines are more focused on pure knowledge-based topics. As they are usually not as filled with advertising in order to make sure that the content and articles aren’t compromised in order to keep advertisers happy, subscription prices tend to be a bit higher. However, they are often the exclusive source of the latest information on some subjects. These are mostly methods for students and scientists to share information and research so that they can peer review experiments and data, or discuss issues specific to that field. If you have a serious academic interest in anything, subscribing to relevant magazines and journals is a must.
In stark contrast, the final general type of magazine is the sensational or tabloid magazine. They often are laid out like smaller newspapers, but unlike newspapers, tend to have a very specific focus on celebrities and popular concerns such as fad diets and fashion. The pages tend to be more pictures than words, usually of celebrities and often wrapped up in some sort of scandal. Usually the content is provided by freelancers and paparazzi, and mainly focuses on the sensational. The journalistic integrity of what is printed is often quite dubious! However, these sorts of magazines sell very well, and we understand if you don’t want to admit that you love the gossip-we won’t tell!
There are a lot of magazines out there for you to subscribe to, and there is likely something out there that you love that you’re not subscribing to. What are you waiting for? There are lots of special rates and discounts available on the internet. You’re only a few clicks away from having the best information on your favorite subjects delivered to your door.
