Would you buy a product because you have seen your favorite celebrity using it? Apparently millions of people have done just that.Fans can be inspired by celebrity lifestylesSomehow seeing Mariah Carey on a yacht in Greece makes me more inclined to want to take a trip. This is one of the biggest reasons I like to read celebrity news because beyond all the drama there is some useful information for future trends, media acquisitions and business mergers.Tech companies negotiate deals with the music industryHere is a good example of what I am talking about.

One of the main reasons that celebrity gossip is so popular with advertisers is because content written about your favorite movie stars and musicians gets lots of views.Don't believe me? well think about this. Google trends said that the most searched for actress on Google in 2016 was Meghan Markle, girlfriend of Prince Harry. That is pretty amazing considering the Donald Trump was much talked about and covered in the media.Celebrity gossip is news worthyThe point is that people want to read about actors, actresses, singers or anyone who is basically making headlines. It is interesting to know who is getting married, who is having a baby or who just bought a million dollar home.Could it be that seeing our most idolized celebrity driving a limited addition Purple Lamborghinimakes us feel better about ourselves. No wait I mean it makes us feel like we can be just like Blac Chyna and Rob Kardashian.

The internet has really exploited that obsession by making sure that mainstream media covers celebrity gossip. You know it has crossed all boundaries when CNN and Forbes starts talking about Entertainment, TV and Movies.Celebrity drama and reality tv gossip brings traffic which helps advertising companies make money. We may never fully understand what the fascination is all about.I will try to make my celebrity news be educational. If at all possible we can learn from the crazy lives of those addicted to fame.
