Celebrities Should Have More Privacy

By Roselyn Lara



Being famous and loved by the public is not always a good thing even when you are receiving a lot of money for it. Many celebrities do not have any sense of privacy in their lives. They are followed around by the paparazzi and fans. They are constantly being recorded and getting their picture taken when they do not want to.


Some celebrities do not enjoy being famous solely for the fact that they can never get any privacy especially when they are out running errands or even just relaxing in their own home. While most people do enjoy fame and money, there needs to be a point as to where we should draw the line in reading into their lives. Not everyone wants to share every aspect of their life.


However, some people might disagree with this, such as the younger audience who enjoy keeping up with the latest news regarding celebrities. Some people like seeing what goes on in other lives. They enjoy gossip because it is interesting and exciting, especially when it is about someone whom hundreds of thousands of people like. Many people even seem to believe that they deserve to have their private lives put out for the world to see in exchange for being famous and rich.


Yes, while the gossip about these people’s lives might be interesting, we still have to remember that these are actual people who need to have their privacy respected more. Keep in mind that you would not want half the world speaking amongst each other about your private life, especially when it comes to talking about a sensitive subject in your life, even if you were being well paid for it.


It is almost guaranteed that the majority of the public would not be pleased if they knew thousands, possibly millions of people were gossiping about their own private lives. Somehow when people know that it is a famous person that they are talking about they think it is okay to talk about anything in their lives.


Another group who might disagree with this is the paparazzi. They might argue that they survive off of recording and taking pictures of their every move considering that it is their job. While it is okay to share non-private matters of celebrities' lives (the information the celebrities themselves are okay with sharing) most paparazzi do not know where to draw the line and will even show up at celebrities' houses. A lot of celebrities then feel forced to move houses due to the fact that they do not want to be watched in their own home.


Almost nobody wants to be recorded or have their picture taken 99 percent of the time, why should it be any different just because we are talking about someone famous? Celebrities' private lives are a topic that should be off-limits to the public.

I agree completely with what you've said. I think that everyone should remember that celebrities are humans too, that they too, have emotions, and that they to, have the right to keep their private life off cameras if they wish. I think it's unfair to celebrities to put their private lives into the spotlight, especially if it's something they wish to keep to themselves; fans don't need to know every single aspect of their favorite celebrity like the back of their hand to be a good fan, simply liking them should be more than enough.

Celebrities should be allowed to have privacy. I always thought that paparazzi were so weird, like go do something else in your life instead of infiltrating others lives.

I agree with this completely, because I can't picture myslef having a non-private life. Celebrities have just as many rights as a normal person which should enable then to a private life. Unfortunately that isn't the case and in some instances celebrities will have stalkers or the paparazzi harassing them.
