There are literally thousands of ways to find out what the celebrities are up to-they are splattered all over the internet, the magazine rack, and the television. Whatever antics your celebrity is up to, it’s guaranteed that someone will know about it and capitalize on it. The real problem is picking out the real news from the garbage. Unfortunately, there’s a lot of garbage to pick through-sometimes it seems like celebrities make outrageous stuff up either to get the attention or take the attention away from their private lives! However, if you want the real news, there are some reputable sources.
First, narrow down which celebrities you want to follow. Magazines very generally go after the most outrageous and newsworthy celebs, so unless you want to follow these stories, it’s best to save your money. A better place to look is in entertainment sections in online pages such as MSN.com, Yahoo.com, and TMZ.com. If you’re looking for celebrity bashing, opinions, and the darker side of entertainment, you should swing by blogs like Perez Hilton and WWTDD.com (What Would Tyler Durden Do?). These famous blogs showcase the worst that celebrities have to offer and give strong opinions on the matter too.
However, if you want to get more personal with the celebrity, then it’s time to hit the internet. Most celebs have their own web page, which they either work on themselves or have their staff work on. This is a good way to learn what they’re up to. You can also follow them on Twitter, Facebook, or MySpace; however, make sure that the person you’re following is actually your celebrity and not a fraud. This is a great way to follow your celebrity as closely as possible without actually being there.
There are a few things to watch out for when looking out for the latest celebrity news. First off, watch out for those bloggers! Most celebrity bloggers are celebrity bashers, and while this may be fun to read if you hate a celebrity, it’s not so great if you like the celebrity being walloped. Second, the tabloids are far from gospel-in fact, most of it is terrible, so take it all with a massive grain of salt. Finally, always have a discerning eye for what you’re reading. Many rumor mills will only report on half the truth, and you’ll lose out on a lot of the story. Surprisingly, the best place to find good information on your celeb is online since nowadays all celebrities have some web page reporting on their activities.
