The media pays too much attention to the lives and relationships of celebrities such as actors, singers or footballers. They should spend more time reporting the lives of ordinary people instead. To what extend to you agree or disagree?
Celebrities have been a important part of so many people for time immemorial. There are many of them who admire celebrities, want to know how they live, rather want to become like them. With the times after media gaining power, the lives of celebrities have often been scrutinized in the name of building a bridge between their fans and them. There have even some celebrities who themselves came forward to share their lives. Although few people enjoy knowing about their stars lives, there are many who prefer knowing about lives of common man.
Media surely helps in bridging the gap between a star and a common man. The stories of their stars can prove to be inspiring for the common person. For example-: Recently Deepika Padukone came out and told the world about how she fought back depression. This became a source of inspiration for many who found themselves in similar position. Showing lives of their stars also proves to be motivating for many people. There have been cases when people truly worked hard to become like their favorite celebrities. Even more it breaks the illusion that celebrities were just lucky enough to be successful.
The real problem begins when media tries to over show the lives of celebrities. For example-: talking about their relationships or the places they go doesn’t makes any sense. Even more it irritates the celebrities at personal level. Also, it so happens that sometimes media forgets about the common man! For example-: if a common person achieves something and the media still talks about the lives of celebrities instead of showing the common man’s struggle, it come as quite disheartening to them.
Overall, I believe it is good to show the lives of celebrities but only to an extent where it could be motivating for the common man. Also the common man must be given the undue importance in times of great achievements or great misery.
