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.

The life of a celebrity is an open book. You may be famous with all the alluring beauty and other good qualities you posses yet you are always subject to issues, intrigues and malicious accusations. You are a public interest; the apple of people’s eyes. Many look at you from head to foot and mostly meddle in your private life.
You might be thinking that gossip is just like news, talking about popular people like actors and actresses and their lives. Yes, it is partly correct but in many aspects, celebrity gossips differ from news.
If we define news, it is a sort of providing information to the public about matters and events that are recently happening in the locality or in the community. We learn that from radios, televisions, papers internet or sometimes we learn that from ones mouth.
Like news, we also learn gossips from radios, television, papers but the most common source of these is through internet and the other one is directly from others mouth. Gossips mainly talks about famous people and their life. If you compare that with news, the latter is usually done in live broadcast and newspapers which talks about recent and relevant issues.
News is telling something whether it is about current events, politics, environment, health, changes and other factual issues in the community while gossips are not. News, are confirmed by the responsible journalists reporting it but gossips are mostly hearsay and mere speculations. They are not always true and reliable, they being not verified.
The paparazzi who took surreptitiously pictures of a celebrity usually are the beginning of gossips and cause it to spread to the public.
The most common cause of these rumors and speculations begin from malicious photographs uploaded in the internet until they spread and become the talk of the town.

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
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.
