Is Celebrity News Worth Reading?

Whether it is gossip about Brangelina’s impending split or the latest news on Louis Tomlinson and Jack Foley of Love Island, celebrity news has taken over the first pages of most newspapers. But is it worth reading?

Celebrity news can be very useful to people who like to keep up with the hottest celebrities. However, it can also be very damaging to society.

1. TMZ

One of the most well-known celebrity news outlets, TMZ covers everything from the latest in Pamela Anderson and Kid Rock’s marital woes to whether Ben Affleck caught a Red Sox pop fly launched into his section at Fenway Park. Its reports are usually based on video footage or photos gathered by TMZ’s staff.

In some cases, the company has been accused of being less than ethical in its reporting. It has been criticized for not disclosing that it pays sources, which is a practice that most other news organizations refuse to do.

TMZ has also been accused of racism and misogyny in its reporting. In a 2007 episode of the TMZ TV show, a black woman who worked at the organization was confused with lip-syncing rapper Milli Vanilli and said to be “acting like a little b*tch.”

Several former TMZ employees have filed HR complaints against the company. One of them claimed that TMZ owner Harvey Levin frequently made comments that were derogatory and racist against black people. Among other things, she alleges that Levin would refer to black women as “those niggers” and compare them to animals.

2. X17

When X17 was first reported by Hungarian scientists, it seemed to offer the promise of a new lightweight boson that could transform pairs of electrons and positrons into photons. If X17 proves to be real, it would change the Standard Model by adding a fifth force that the SM doesn’t account for at present.

X17 filed a predictable claim for copyright infringement, but it also included a theory of “hot news misappropriation,” which is based on the time sensitive nature of its photographs and its distinct interest in being first to publish them. It argued that Lavandeira’s actions deprives it of revenue and harms its business.

3. The Hollywood Gossip

The site focuses on celebrity gossip, photos and videos of famous people. It also features articles about the latest fashion trends, health and fitness tips, and celebrity beauty secrets.

The New York Post’s Page Six has been dishing up celebrity dirt and drama for decades fueled by anonymous sources in Manhattan. The paper’s reputation as a source of fast-breaking celeb news makes it one of the most trusted and beloved gossip sites out there.

The site’s name speaks for itself—it’s the go-to place for all things Hollywood involving movie stars, directors, and film moguls. This is where celebrities and the paparazzi meet to share insider info and exclusive celebrity pictures and videos. This is also the place to be for breaking news about who is dating whom, and when the newest cast member was added to a big-budget film. If you need a break from the heartbreaking stories of divorced couples and cheating spouses, Page Six also offers lighthearted celebrity sightings that are sure to bring a smile to your face.

4. Variety

Variety is the world’s leading entertainment business publication. Readers turn to it for breaking news reports, insightful award-season coverage and must-read feature spotlights. Its multi-platform content coverage includes film, television, theater, music and technology with a global perspective. It also provides a subscription-based platform offering relevant industry analysis, branded content and virtual events and summits.

Variety offers grants to agencies that provide services, activities or programs that directly benefit children. Applicants must be 501(c)(3) organizations and are required to submit a variety grant reporting form.

Variety first appeared in 1905. It is the oldest newspaper of its kind, publishing daily news and articles on movie productions, stars, producers and directors. The name “Variety” is derived from the fact that the paper contained information on various different types of productions, including both films and stage plays. Syd Silverman established the New York-based Weekly Variety and Hollywood-based Daily Variety in 1933. The weekly was edited by Peter Bart while the daily was overseen by Michael Silverman (Syd’s son). The company was sold in 1987. Throughout the years, Variety has published many charts and data on film productions such as box office totals, TV ratings and music chart data. In addition, the company has produced a number of books of film reviews.

5. HollywoodLife

Founded by Bonnie Fuller, a magazine editor who helped re-invent Us Weekly as well as Cosmopolitan and Glamour, HollywoodLife focuses on celebrity, fashion, beauty, women issues and entertainment news. It has 3.2 million Facebook likes and over 800,000 YouTube subscribers.

The site’s reporting often dips into speculation and rumors, which makes it unreliable. This is especially true because the site shares a lot of its reporting with the disreputable National Enquirer tabloid. It should be double-checked against more trustworthy sources to see if it has the right information.

People Magazine is one of the most reliable sources for celebrity news. The magazine keeps a close relationship with celebrities and has its own TV show that features the latest news. It also relies on direct interviews with celebrities, which helps to make its gossip more accurate. It is also a trusted source for legal gossip as it has ties with law enforcement agencies.
