Another guest post today, from my bestie Evy. You can view other guest posts in the series here! Enjoy! x
Celebrities. You either love ‘em or hate ‘em. I love celebrities, but I don’t love them for the same reasons that most people do. There aren’t really celebrities that I look up to (the closest I get to that is loving Emma Watson because she’s classic). I love celebrities because I find them terribly fascinating. My fascination of celebrities is what made me want to major in PR and work in talent publicity after I graduate university.
So why are celebrities fascinating? Most people don’t consider looking past what celebrities present to us. We see them on Twitter, Instagram, gossip websites, Facebook, our Tumblr feeds… We feel like we know these people. Do we really know them though, or are they just showing us what they think we want to see? Is a celebrity’s public image ever exactly like their actual self? Most people don’t choose to question what their favourite celebrity says and does, but I do, and you should too.
