Is it time for the celebrity era to die? No.

Celebrity. We are all familiar with the concept. Someone who is widely known for something/nothing and attracts an unprecedented amount of interest into the inane details of their private lives. Gossip websites, magazines, television and the internet have created an entire industry dedicated to giving the public unprecedented access to what goes on behind closed doors of these public figures. Or what goes on in the supermarket. Or at the hairdressers. Or in the park walking a dog. Tanya Gold’s column in the 20th July issue of Stylist states “it is time for the era of celebrity to die”. She reckons there have been “too many headlines about sex lives, and too many ruined lives.” She rightly states that if you don’t want to be famous, you don’t have to be. If you never talk to the press they will never have anything to print. Even if at first you are hounded eventually they will get bored and focus their attention on the next ‘big thing’ who is so hungry for a headline they purposefully go without underwear, creating the perfect shot of an ‘accidental flash while wearing a short skirt and clambering out of a taxi’. Wonder why Madonna is rarely photographed in London? She wears very uninteresting outfits.
