Celebrity gossip sites have a wave of enthusiastic readers all over the world. They have dedicated readers who check up on updates, no matter what the constraints are. What we do not really notice sometimes is what effect do celeb gossip sites have on the kids of these celebrities? It must surely be taxing to have tons of entertainment news sections talking about their parents. The situation is really difficult for kids whose parents have broken up. They must be feeling a mind-numbing experience of all that is written about people who are close to them. Being of an impressionable mind and age, kids are more likely to believe whatever they read.
Celeb kids don’t always know that many celebrity gossip sites publishes half-baked stories to meet certain deadlines and sometimes, just because they do not have anything better to report. This trend among celeb gossip writers is the most damaging. This is detrimental to the credibility of the celeb gossip sites. The kids of the celebrities they tear apart in their entertainment news sections are the ones who bear the brunt. It is really sad that kids have to read a lot of drivel about their parents, the hook-ups and linkages that these writers cook up where they are non-existent. It is not a very enviable situation to be in.
The celeb kids themselves are not out of harm’s reach. They have the paparazzi glaring down their throats each time they make a move out. They can’t hang around with their friends or head for the video-game parlor. They miss out on a normal childhood because they happen to be celeb kids. They have celebrity gossip reporters hounding them for a snap as they go about their lives like any other kid would like to. They are denied the full freedom that childhood brings with it. They may be growing up in the lap of luxury but they are missing out on a lot, things which money can’t buy.
Celeb kids have been known to have problems in schools because of what is being written about their parents on celebrity gossip magazines. A recent example would be the presence of the paparazzi in front of the school where Tiger Woods’ daughter studies. The posse of reporters positioned at the gate of the school was waiting for Tiger or his wife Elin to show up. It was a crisis situation for the entertainment news sections because both of them were not making a public appearance. A snap of either would cost millions. In the rush of economics and profit, they laid siege to a school, making things inconvenient for the kids as well as for guardians.
This is one aspect that we must all look at with some consideration. It is okay to look for updates and you can’t really expect people to forgo their habit of reading entertainment news columns. But maybe we need to be responsible when it comes to talking about celebrities who have kids. After all, they are not part of this celebrity circus!
