The first rationale is that most public people seek and consent to publicity. But, consent in a general sense does not justify invasions into every aspect of an individual’s life. Unfortunately, the personalities and affairs of celebrities are viewed as inherently public. Paparazzi argue that the nature of celebrities’ jobs is construed as waiving their rights to privacy. However, this waiver should be regarded as a limited waiver, restricting the press to examine and exposing only that information that has some bearing on the individual’s position in society. The constant exposure that celebrities receive tends to make celebrities more physiologically tolerant of the press behavior than they might otherwise be. The press has a right to inform the public of matters of public interest. As the celebrities cultivate their positions in the public spotlight, they generate continued interest in their activities. The more information the public gathers, the public feels as if they “know” the individual and are privy to their private lives. Maintaining celebrity status often demands satisfaction of public curiosity (Nordhaus 289-291).
Society should already realise that celebrities are also normal human beings and they are just ordinary people with ordinary life. Violation of their privacy rights for the sake of enjoyment of the society is definitely unacceptable. Individuals including media must behave in a respectful manner towards a person's private and family life. Respect between individuals is a crucial value it is essential to ensure peace and harmony in the society. The importance of respect is highlighted by The Golden Rule that is to earn respect, we must first respect others

Kim Kardashian: Publicizing Motherhood and Sexuality The nature of celebrity has undergone a dramatic transformation in the last century, particularly in the qualifications necessary for becoming famous In Daniel J. Boorstin’s The Image: A Guide to Pseudo-Events in America, he argues that in previous centuries, notable individuals were “heroes” who were celebrated for their “greatness in some achievements” (49). Eventually, due to the rise of mass media, a “celebrity” was created in which the credentials for merit all but disappeared. Instead the celebrity became “a person who is well known for his well-knowness” (Boorstin 57). Currently, there is no other celebrity in the world who is more famous for being famous than Kim Kardashian. Kardashian did not rely on traditional accomplishments to achieve celebrity status; instead, she exploited her renowned beauty, particularly her curvaceous figure. However, that is not to say that she is any less impactful. Her highly publicized and controversial actions, most of which relate to her free expression of sexuality, are criticized and praised by millions of people every day. Indeed, it is Kardashian’s ability to generate so much feedback that makes her such an influential pop culture icon, and this has only increased since she became a mother. The controversies surrounding her famous body showcase the many opposing attitudes that society has on the relationship between motherhood and female sexuality.
Should celebrities use their spotlights to speak their minds about politics and current world issues? Some argue that celebrities are only here to entertain and should not ruin that by voicing their political opinions. Mark Wahlberg for example, stated in an interview with Task and Purpose that celebrities should stay out of politics as they are in their own little “bubble” and have no way of truly understanding the struggles of average people. On the other hand, some celebrities have the exact opposite opinion. In her Golden Globes acceptance speech, Oprah Winfrey denounces silence and encourages everyone to stand up for what is right no matter what their social standing is. To explore this idea, we will use the rhetorical analysis theory
Introduction A celebrity is defined by the media and society through characterisations; the introduction of various on-line and print media platforms enhance the presence of celebrity culture, such for advertising, activism, different genres of television (e.g. reality, gastronomical), and even political avenues as well (Driessens). Their fame is developed based on
Celebrities have plenty in common with political leaders in terms of their lifestyles and powerful impact on society. Although many believe that even with their similarities both should not talk about the issues that concern the other, some also argue that these similarities are what make their comments valid. Focusing specifically on celebrities, it is reasonable that they should not raise their opinions on politics. By examining how their lives are affected by the political leaders and their decisions and contrasting that to the benefits of not sharing their political comments to the public, it will be that the above stance is highly justifiable.
The National Post published an article by Sadaf Ahsan titled “Kim Kardashian’s nude selfie provokes a Twitter conversation around celebrity slut-shaming”, and although it is posted under the ‘Celebrity’ category on the Post’s official website, it is interesting that the news outlet published the story to begin with. On the surface—and according to the article’s comments—stories of this nature are typically treated as superficial and trivial, however, not many people look beyond the ‘celebrity factor’ towards the deeper and more serious human issues that are apparent. It seems as though Ahsan and the National Post may have tried to reinforce the ideology that not all things should be taken at face-value, no matter their context or what factors are present. Kim Kardashian’s nude photo ‘scandal’ should also not be observed at a surface level, and instead, people must take into account the deeper meanings and issues that are apparent within the
Several celebrities also came forward and wrote about how the industry judges them for who they are, such as Cara Delevingne (on her modeling career) and Kim Kardashian (about her nude selfies).
Like most clichés, the clichés often evoked when speaking about traveling—it’s eye-opening; it’s life-changing, etc.—have some truth to them. However, these promises that have been immortalized by traveling clichés aren’t automatically granted to you with the purchase of an airplane ticket, nor will there be an “eye opening experience” waiting to take your hand at the airport, because in today’s increasingly globalized world, it’s becoming harder and harder to truly immerse yourself in a foreign culture.

Celebrity journalism tends to focus on the private lives of people already in the public eye, who are in that position through choice or otherwise. There is no question that ‘celebrity sells’, but there has to be a burden of responsibility on each journalist to ensure that simply because the ‘public has an interest’ in an individual celebrity does not mean that every story is ‘in the public interest’.
