Being a celebrity is no easy task. One has to give interviews, sign autographs, appear for photoshoots, and what not, that too on a constant basis! Also central to the life of a celebrity is the media. Nothing that you do is kept hidden from the media, and well, media is always on the lookout for some juicy gossip.
Also, the moment media finds something even remotely controversial about you, you’re doomed. Magazines, newspapers, paparazzi- they all love meaty gossip, and anything that they can get their hands on, they feel the need to publish it. Then, that star’s talent becomes secondary, and gossip comes first.
