Tonight, the Internet is abuzz with reports that Chris Brown has been arrested for assault; earlier this week, Christian Bale’s curse-filled on-set tirade was all anyone could think about. Day in and day out, our hunger for celebrity news grows--especially that which is controversial or negative--and indulging in the tabloid and paparazzi culture are all that seem to satisfy.
From Christian Bale and Chris Brown to Michael Phelps and Britney Spears, paparazzi culture has caused a number of prominent celebrities significant harm in their personal lives. Over ten years later, many Princess Diana fans still hold a grudge against the paps for causing the crash that killed the famous figure.
These paparazzi and tabloid innovations are a product of our celebsessed culture. They include celebrities fighting back against the paparazzi, proposed anti-paparazzi laws and artwork inspired by tabloids.
