Some people follow the life of the stars with interest and like to read various newspaper gossip. For some, this is a way to relax and have fun, while for others, tracking the latest events in the life of a favorite singer or actress becomes a necessity.
A way to distract yourself
Sometimes people read the tabloids just because they want to escape from everyday worries. After a day full of work duties and household chores, they find it pleasant to just read a newspaper with simple headlines and not think about serious topics.
The yellow stigma of shame is usually awarded to those newspaper publications that, in pursuit of circulation, do not hesitate to lure the public with "fried" facts from the life of celebrities.
News from the life of world celebrities also helps to disconnect from everyday problems and think on abstract topics. Newspaper sketches about how the stars spend their time, or entertainment programs with an abundance of various gossips and sensations sometimes allow some people to forget for a while about some troubles.
Some people need a constant supply of new information about their favorite stars. They specially collect gossip about various celebrities and photos with them in order to be aware of what their idols live. Sometimes this interest oversteps the boundaries and becomes unhealthy. However, mild curiosity can be quite common.
It should be noted those people who do not so much love celebrities as they envy them. They hunt for news of bad luck with the stars. Gossip that some actress did not receive a prestigious award or broke up with her fiancé, or a famous singer abuses alcohol or drugs, brings a kind of satisfaction to such people.
There are several versions about the origin of the term "yellow press". According to one of them, the name comes from the color of the first unpretentious newspapers, which were printed on cheap yellow paper.
Tribute to fashion
Some people read the tabloids and watch various talk shows in order to keep abreast of the events around. If people they know love to talk about celebrity news, to keep up the conversation with them, you need to follow the lives of celebrities.
There are also people who are easily addicted to celebrities who are currently at the peak of their popularity. When another star is at the zenith of their fame, some people want to know everything about her. However, if celebrities only lose a little in the rating, they find a new object of interest.
For some, the tabloids and celebrity gossip programs are virtually their only sources of information. Such people have a narrow mind, do not read serious publications, high-quality literature, avoid everything complex and thought-provoking. They do not want to expand their horizons and somehow develop. Sometimes this condition is temporary, for example, during adolescence. However, for some people, alas, the world is so limited by this tinsel.
