In today’s world, every little thing celebrities do become a headline. The media publish exclusives and people tend to soak them up. Why? Simply put, it sells. There is an audience that wants to read and see such material, so the media are happy to comply. However, while some argue that celebrities have a private life that should remain so, the media does not have a right to publish their every personal detail. However, when it comes to actions that have been taken and could still potentially harm the safety of others, then the public has a right to know.
A bright beautiful sunny day that was distraught by a flock of raucous and exasperating sounds of paparazzi’s camera flashes directly gazing at a woman’s pale white face covered in big fancy sunglasses wearing a white dress. The aggravated look shined all throughout the woman’s face. Multiple deputies encircled, guiding her in a straight path towards the entrance doors. A cheerful long yellow tape written, “POLICE LINE DO NOT CROSS” in black font stretched along the sidewalk, remained only as the barrier between them. With the crowd sporadically calling out “LINDSAY!” coming from every direction, one can distinguish the woman to be as the troubled Hollywood celebrity, Lindsay Lohan. Walking past the mob, she hurriedly entered the big doors of a building with a signage that says “Beverly Hills Courthouse”. Moments later, a judge, before her, is seen ordering her a 90-day lock up in a rehabilitation center. Lindsay Lohan is only one of today’s unfortunate well-known celebrities who succumbed to Hollywood’s glitzy trap of fame and led her to the deception of drug addiction. Recently, there has been a stream of news headlines regarding celebrities’ personal struggle over drug problems. People should understand that celebrities are also natural human beings, they do good things as well as vacuous things triggered from their own different reasons; it may come from personal or social issues. With most celebrities already enjoying the glamour of money and power, what are the
Celebrities are everywhere in the news, the latest gossip appears in the weekly magazines without fail. Whether they be an actor, athlete, dancer, designer, model, singer or just rich; there is someone out there who is watching that person like a hawk, not letting a single breath go unnoticed. Such is the life of the rich and famous, under the incessant gaze of journalists and the paparazzi. Lives that many people take a great interest in and admire to the point where others would liken this great interest and admiration to a cult-like worship of celebrities. This is a brief description of what I think to be celebrity culture.
As I read through this verbose chapter I began to pick up on the dominating themes of celebrity culture and their development over time. I consider myself somewhat of a celebrity super fan but as I read I realized I have never dove deeper into the meaning of celebrity but merely skimmed the surface. During my perusal of the chapter many thought-provoking concepts jumped out at me.
Celebrities have a right to have their own privacy, and the paparazzi had better not be allowed to restrict their lives. Furthermore, photographers and journalists must not be permitted to make news that can influence celebrities' success adversely. The rights of celebrities for privacy have always been abused, so they need to defend their rights, despite their profession. Though they are public figures, this does not mean that the publish of every detail of their private lives is justifiable. It is legitimate to take pictures when they are at the stage or on the red carpet, yet most cases they must be left alone. However, the media always inclines to release both sensational and negative news to public. The latest pattern is the Chris Brown and Rihanna domestic abuse scandal ("Chris Brown and Rihanna: A Dangerous Relationship" 1). This really influenced Chris
