Celebrities are those people who have earned massive fame and liking among the public. Media attention is necessary for celebrities to market themselves, which is a very important in their career growth. But fame is like a double-edged sword, sometimes celebrities suffer by the over-enthusiastic media persons. So, there are debates on the treatment of celebrities by media.

Arguments against :-

Media attention is what a person who aspires to be a celebrity dreams of. And when someone has a fan following in thousands and millions, their fans obviously want to know how their regular life is. Do they go to work like us early in the morning or have the luxury to work at night and sleep at day? How do they manage time? How are they so fit even after such a hectic schedule? and so on. This gap nowadays is bridged by social media like Instagram, snapchat, facebook etc. and allows celebrities to show their fans what they want to show. But the media has it’s own job to do. It works day and night to tell people what the celebrities don’t want to show or are not bothered to make it public. The media has it’s sources, reporters, cameramen who continuously follow these stars to know what’s happening in their lives.

Arguments in favor :-

But anything in excess is bad. And media sometimes fails to understand this and their boundaries. In order to get the maximum TRPs, readership they forget the moral boundaries. There have been instances of stalking and hacking by media. The content obtained by high level stalking is then presented in such a way, that apart from being far from truth, maligns the image of the celebrity.

Even during funerals too reporters are seen to be crossing their moral and ethical limits, asking inappropriate questions at an inappropriate time.

At many instances reporters can be seen getting to the nerves of the celebrities just to capture an impulsive reaction which could be beneficial for their business.

Conclusion :-

Celebrities love media attention, they love to pose for their fans, give interviews etc. and they do all sorts of things to keep the media and their fans happy. As Spiderman’s grandpa said to him that “With great power come great responsibility” , this quote is very apt for the media, as they have the power to make or break the public image of a celebrity they should work responsibly and should understand their boundaries very well.

Media persons should remember that celebrities deserve to keep their personal lives private, and they have their own life apart from their career.

    Yes social media is unfair because media exaggerates accusations and allegations made to celebrities where judgements are quick, biased, without proof where media provides platform for people to make judgements ,for character assassination before allegations are proved. This destroys career and personal life of celebrities. A common example is case of Jhonny Depp.
    No is fair because although initially judgements are quick, biased, without proof, it is to create content appealing to mass public, but media at last provides platform for open discussion of actual facts and truths from victims and accused staging talk shows and connecting possible witnesses involved in the case through media like the case of Johnny Depp providing justice.

    in context of the statement, I would like to say that celebrities do like it when they are covered by the media, the sort of attention media gives them they get more popularity among the people and can influence the people by their lifestyle and sometimes if also helps in brand endorsements and sometimes celebrities do it voluntarily.
    But the concern arises when media crosses its boundaries they get so much indulged in covering them on camera that they almost ruin their personal and private life which in turn may affect that there may be some issues which celebrities do not want to show to the world related to their personal life. but media has its own sources if they get the news they manipulate and show it to the world in a completely different way which i believe is a violation of fundamental rights of a person after all we all are the citizen of democratic country and we have rights to live our life as we want.

    According to me Media person always they have target to cover the information for the celebrity about their career and personal life. Celebrities also wants to come to the camera because of they have lots of fan. They also feel happy to give their message to get the fame. Sometimes media person pressurise them this is not good . May be sometimes any personal matter they don’t want to disclose infront of the public. But media person sometimes they are very aggressive to get the information
    Because celebrity have also personal life. When they work in the silver screen I e different. Real life is different but media person everything wants to cover. This is not good
