The public antics of Britney Spears, Amy Winehouse and Lindsay Lohan have provided plenty of content for celebrity news sites. And by content, I mean questionable behavior that usually involves drugs, alcohol or mental breakdowns. There is a new blog that covers the same stuff as most of the other celebrity gossip sites but, with a self-proclaimed selfless slant. Celebrity Psychings covers the mental health issues of current headlines involving celebrities. Crazy!
Implications - The public is fascinated with celebrities, which is encouraged with the rise of the paparazzi and gossip blogs. The personal lives of A-list stars has become more important than their professional achievements. Thus, websites that follow the private lives of celebrities allow readers to feel a more intimate connection with their favorite famous figures.
