What is Celebrity?

What actually Celebrity means?We always talk about it, watch them, adore them, but what exactly did the words Celebrity is? Ok, here I found something from Wikipedia.

A celebrity is a widely-recognized or famous person who commands a high degree of public and media attention. The word stems from the Latin verb "celebrere" but they may not become a celebrity unless public and mass media interest is piqued. For example Virgin Director Richard Branson was famous as a CEO, but he did not become a global celebrity until he attempted to circumnavigate the globe in a hot air balloon. Another example is Al Gore, whose environmental crusade has elevated him to celebrity status. On the other hand, mass entertainment personalities such as soap opera actors or music stars are likely to become celebrities even if the person deliberately avoids media attention.

A famous definition of celebrity comes from the cultural theorist Daniel Boorstin. In his book,The Image: A Guide to Pseudo-Events in America, he cynically describes celebrities as “a person who is known for his well-knowness . . . a human pseudo-event.”

Maybe clear things up in one way. But you know what, who cares?Celebrity they I want to share here in my blog is about actress, singers, personalities that brighten our life with their performance!They everywhere and I bet most of us watch and adore them!

So, Enjoy story share!!
