Celebrity news, not to mention celebrity gossip, is avidly followed closely by millions worldwide. People obviously love to listen to about their favourite celebrity. And whether it is good or bad news does not seem to matter too much.

There is a multimillion dollar industry that acts while the disseminator of celebrity news.

Many of us might not actually purchase the celebrity magazines but we shall catch a glimpse of these headlines at the neighborhood store or on the newsstands. The TV news channels may also keep us up to date with any celebrity scandals and a lot of people will spend part of these day considering a specific story, however briefly.

Don't we've more important items to occupy our thoughts?

Needless to say we do but the, sometimes ridiculous, actions of a celebrity often provide us with some light relief and help us to forget our personal mundane problems.

Many people are celebrity fixated or often verging on being celebrity obsessive. Is a healthy state of mind? Does that say something negative by what we think of ourselves as individuals?

But, want it or not, the'celebrity news gossip'will be here to stay. People want to listen to concerning the lives of the celebrities and they will hunt down the newest, news snippets wherever they can find them.

A celebrity is naturally a human being susceptible to all the usual failings that the majority of us suffer. But their professional lives often set them apart as different things, unique and special; almost as though they inhabited a completely different world to us mere mortals!

And in many ways that can make sure they are appear unreal and two-dimensional.

But the newest celebrity gossip, those spicy, slices of information about an individual's personal life, often seem to bring our special celebrity within reach and back off to earth with a bump. We like to understand just who their latest love partner is, why they've lost or gained weight or how they got drunk on that special celebrity occasion.

Celebrity pictures are now the big draw. Many of us prefer to see those candid photos that always seem to expose the'real'person behind the celebrity.

And so the celebrity news and the accompanying celebrity photos help us to essentially get to understand - roughly we believe - our celebrity. The personal information puts flesh on the celebrity body. We commence to see our celebrities as real people - exactly like us perhaps - and they start to emerge as three-dimensional entities that we can relate to and love or hate while the fancy takes us.

In the golden age of stardom, people often put their celebrity stars high up on a pedestal. Celebrity news was often officially or unofficially censored to filter the unsavoury facets of a person's personality or actions. Today, we should know our celebrity warts and all!

Celebrity news is primarily entertaining but also acts as exposure and publicity. But people also love to see gossip; those words that can either be true or false.
