If Hollywood gossip is to be believed, the moving images industry has been hit by the recession badly. There are rampant cancellations and shelving of high-budget projects. But that has not dampened the popularity of the celebrity gossip columns, nor have people lost interest in reading entertainment news. So what is it that keeps the readers interested in celeb gossip despite a dent in the production of movies and production? The answer lies in the immense appeal of Hollywood and the stars that have brightened the sky over it.
The term ‘media whore’ is now widely used in celebrity gossip circles. Though it may come across as something derogatory if you go by the literary meaning of the term, the same cannot be said if you take it as a modern idiom. It refers to celebrities who always court celeb gossip reporters to get themselves into the focus. They deliberately make off-color comments to create a controversy in the pages of entertainment news. This category of celebrities, mostly ex reality show stars or mainstream celebrities past their primes, manage to grab headlines not just by making statements which are bizarre and fictional. They sometimes get into relationships with bona fide celebrities to bask in the sunlight of short-lived fame.
Every person wants to follow the lifestyle of his or her favorite celebrity. The stars simply amaze their fans. This has resulted in having a huge fan following from different corners of the world. The actors have a major influence on youngsters. The teenagers are eager to learn more about popular stars such as Gerard Butler, Anne, Jennifer, Kim and more. People of all ages want to read about their stars. These personalities are always making headlines due to their unique personalities. The media continuously keeps an eye on what is going on in their professional and personal life. They are able to generate a lot of interest with their latest movie releases or any other activity.
