      Why is society so caught up in celebrity gossip? Celebrities are put on pedestals and the more popular they are, the more they are scrutinized in the media. Some celebrities cannot leave their own home without being snapped for photos by paparazzi.  

      Their life is on watch 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Celebrity gossip magazines and some web sites are making millions of dollars a year by posting the personal details of Hollywood's famous stars.

      Society is fascinated by celebrities because they are constantly on the big screen or television. Their talent and most of the time, their good looks is what attracts loyal fans. The fact that most celebrities are filthy rich is also an attraction.  

      When celebrities make it big, they are even less accessible which makes people even more curious about every aspect of their lives from who they are dating to what they are wearing. Sometimes a fan's love for a celebrity can get out of hand. Some celebrities have dealt with the obsessive fan who does not understand their boundaries.  

      Celebrity couples are also big news, along with celebrity divorces and kids.

      One area of celebrity life I feel should be off limits are the children. Very often, these kids are hounded by the paparazzi as well. I think they should be allowed to live as normal as possible without cameras in their faces for everything that they do. Children should not have to deal with what their famous parents deal with.  

      Celebrity gossip will continue to fascinate society as it is as entertaining as watching television or going to the movies. Just remember that these celebrities are people too and deal with the media backlash on a regular basis.

        • I can’t believe how much MONEY they celebs make and all the great vacations they take. God, we could only dream. It’s depressing. I hate being so interested in what they do, it only depresses me more.

          I also can’t understand why I get so UPSET when a favorite celeb passes away!  OMG, when JFK,Jr. died! Most recently Heath Ledger!! NOW Patrick Swayze....NOOooooo!
