In the public it would be Option 3....but thanks to my addiction to the TMZ show that's not the case

I'd love to select option 4 but that would just be lying. I don't give a damn about them, but my newspaper likes to publish all the celebrity gossip on the pages with the cinema guide and genuine movie news. Sometimes those weird headlines suck me in. So...I went with option 3: I read the odd story when it sounds appealing. Wish I had more self control though.

I'd go for option 3 as my home page almost always has some crazy celebrity related news on it, and it's hard to resist looking at some of it, though I HATE crap like TMZ with a passion!

TMZ and other tabloids are similar to woodticks: they survive and thrive on the blood and efforts of others and have no ability to survive without a "host". At least the woodtick doesn't seek to embarass their host.

No, I don't want to admit it...

Guilty as charged. I watch The Young Turks, which is a political podcast of sorts, though they put YouTube videos up on a daily basis. I find myself watching every one of their videos, and that includes the ones where they're talking about what Kanye said during Taylor Swift's acceptance speech. *sigh* I'm an anarchist in a lot of respects; you'd think I'd abhor celebrity news. Not the case, son.

Option 4, but if it's something of really interest; I admit TMZ is my junk food for tv. If it's anything like Octomom or Jon and Kate (please end that show) then I don't give a damn.

Jon and Kate may be ending if Jon has his way or something.

Then good. That show is a decay on TV and that's saying something.

I occasionally look at What Would Tyler Durden Do?, mainly for the humor. I'm not even sure who the majority of the people are.

Incidentally, I was skimming Pitchfork's 500 Greatest Tracks of the 2000s, and I recognized maybe five artists. I don't even know what these people do when it's the stuff that's actually supposed to be relevant to their careers.

I thnk too much emphasis is placed on celebrities now. Especially younger ones.
There are so many more important issues out there and here we are reading about what colour dress Posh Spice is wearing.

THANK YOU!!

It's ruining film! People only go to see famous people in the movies, and people make it big not because of talent, but because they sign deals with tabloids. Paris Hilton anyone?

The only time when I read articles about celebrities is when it's about a movie they're doing. If someone suddenly dropped a film they were going to do, or if so and so signed on to a movie, then I'll read the blurb. Does that count? I don't subscribe to US Weekly or the tabloids.
