Introduction

It’s obvious that today’s society is more than captivated with the Britneys, Lindsays, Nicoles, and Haydens of the world. Sites like Perez Hilton and TMZ rack up tens of thousands of hits per day, with people across the country constantly checking to see what happened on last night’s Heroes, or what exactly Britney Spears ordered at Starbucks earlier this afternoon. In fact, a recent research study done by Anderson Analytics revealed that Perez Hilton was the 5th most popular website visited by college females. It was also the closest thing to a current event that could be found on a list of the most common websites frequented by college men and women.


Perez Hilton in the flesh

Studies like these work to confirm what is already evident – people tend to care more about the “fabulous? lives of the rich and famous than the actual newsworthy events occurring around the globe. I’m not (that) ashamed to admit that I visit these celebrity blogs everyday, and that I know more about Lindsay Lohan’s experiences in court than the political views of Barack Obama. Our obsession with the celebrity lifestyle has reached new heights, propelled by the recent surge in the popularity of these blogs, and I have no doubt in my mind that famous people are feeling the pressure of the constant presence of the camera.


Has Britney lost it completely?

With that being said, I have more than a few opinions about the generally ridiculous behaviors of the overpriveleged starlets that keep the paparazzi busy. I am going to use my blog as an outlet to discuss recent events in the celeb stratosphere, and then provide my own unique commentary. 2007 has been an extremely eventful year in the lives of celebrities, and I don’t expect that to change anytime soon, and I look forward to hearing about what crazy thing these stars will do next.
