Interested in Stars?

For those in love with gossip, there is nothing more valuable than celebrity rumors on everyone you could every think about. And that is what CelebrityGossip offers: latest rumors (news sometimes) about everyone every having their 5 minutes of fame: singers, actors, models, all the hot people are there. And I think they have chosen a great slogan to describe the essence of gossip: “Is it true?”

All entries have tabloid-like headlines and are taken from online magazines, newspapers and other such sources. Users can vote for each entry and also comment. Registration is free, but required.

Celebrity Gossip is divided in 4 different sections. The Hot section is meant to display the most interesting rumors published. I guess this should be decided based on votes. But from what I have seen, as they still lack incoming votes, the comments make the difference between hot and not.

The Latest section displays the most recent news first, as expected. But if you want to check a certain star, go to the Celebs section. You will find an alphabetized list of everyone and anyone. Most of those present there I have no idea about. Or, if you don’t know how’s become an interesting read these days, check the “Most Talked About Celebrities” top, displayed on the Hot section.

The visual part of the site, the Pictures section, displays photographs of every celebrity ever taken a snapshot of. Angelina Jolie is top of the game in this section, according to the “Most Viewed Pictures” top.

I am not a big fan of celebrity rumors, but I have to say CelebrityGossip seems perfectly designed for what it wants to promote. Catchy headlines, short entries, eye-catching photos, the girlish-glamorous header and background, the large amount of pink, the slogan and the starry logo, it’s all been carefully planned. And I am quite sure they will earn lots of fans among those interested in knowing everything about famous people.

    i wonder whether this worship of the cult of celebrity is an inate human instinct, or is it a factor of the uninhibited (pun intended) growth of a news-fodder hungry media

    he asked in a "chicken or egg" sort of way.

    Well, you are right in one thing, it may see a chicken or egg question. But is it? Celebrity gossip (although being a celebrity might have meant slightly different things - the reach and glamorous beaus and belles of high society) existed long before the media, as we know it today.

    Right now, I think it is a little bit of both. The media would accomplish nothing if there weren't a genuine interest in some. On the other hand, the interest could never be kept at its current rates without the media. Gossip, same as sex, sells :)

    To complete your comment: the celebrity Gossip is about sex. Sex and power (money). Sure it sells.

    Even when the "gossip" is about a diet, you have to understand the reasons behind that diet: without it the star is not sexy enough... LOL!

    You are right. The sex layer is behind it all. But not only that. Is sex involving famous people. And that can help everyone out with their secret fantasies :)
