Are they that much different than us?

That question really sums up what I think about celebrities. The only difference between me and them is that they happen to be really good at something or had the correct networking. For example, Tiger Woods got a lot of publicity the past several months. He's good at golf(darn good) but he still has human weaknesses. Although cheating on one's spouse isn't good, it happens all the time from both sexes. We can all sit here and pretend that we're more noble than him, but we've all done wrong in the past.

I believe that the press has the right to pursue a story on persons with whom they have a mutual agreement with. That way, nobody gets hurt in the process. I can't think of a single person who wouldn't care if they were being relentlessly stalked by a reporter 24/7. A person's pristine image can be ruined overnight or even over a single story in the newspaper or on TV. Again, everyone is human first above all their other roles.

The line between a person's public image and their private lives isn't the same for everyone. Some persons want to get the limelight no matter who else is there. Others only want the good stuff shown(tabloids take care of that though).

  1. Chris - I agree with you. Some people search out the paparazzi when they want to become headline news. Of course, they only want the good and not the bad reported. Others I feel would rather have their private lives kept private.

    Good post!

  2. Good Post, I totally agree with you expcially about the Tiger Woods incident. Everyone is human and everyone needs privacy. Of course nobody talks about what happened with him and his wife and if they were fighting or anything it's just all bad stuff.
