Are famous people treated unfairly by the media? Should they be given more privacy, or is the price of their fame an invasion into their private lives?


Well known people are treated overwhelming by the media. In my opinion, the media needs to give them privacy. This essay will discuss which one is better between to give privacy to famous people or that happens because of an invasion into their private lives.

The media always want to know about famous people habitual, scandals, and what happens around famous people. Outstanding people are usual human and they need privacy. They work for entertainment, and everyone can see them on televisions, web, magazines, and newspapers. Paparazzi always want to capture their activities. Although some famous people show that they really hate paparazzi, but the paparazzi never gives up catching those well known people. There are some cases that famous people fought with paparazzi because they felt that paparazzi were overwhelming to their privacy. For examples, Justin Bieber hit a paparazzi when he was dating with Selena Gomez because he had told the paparazzi to go but the paparazzi still took his picture, and also Britney Spears, when she had just divorced with her ex-husband Kevin Federline, the paparazzi caught her picture that she wanted to hit the paparazzi with an umbrella.

I believe that it will be more appropriate if the media give information that the readers or viewers need. The negative news that appear in the television can give bad effects to young readers and young viewers too. We do not need to know about scandals, drunk people, divorced people because they are useless for us. In addition, famous people are the same with us, they need privacy in their hard times in lives. They do not want if others people see their scandals, divorce, and drunk photos of them. Well known people also need refreshing after work, they want to look and act like usual people too. Because some paparazzi had caught some celebrities that wearing ugly clothes and fashion expert critics them.

In conclusion, medias are way too far of wanted to know about famous people activities. Medias need to give famous people privacy. They need privacy and they want to look and act like usual people and nobody disturb them.
