    Default celebrities or not?

    in this age of heat magazine, big brother, reality tv and z list celebs what ever happened to real celebrities? 10 years ago someone like jade goody wouldnt have got into the local flea pit for nothing now they're stars? whatever happened to real famous people or is it all the fault of people like us all for even talking about them. At least someone like tom jones or my acting namesake are famous for something other than being on some crappy reality tv show. Who is a real celeb and who isnt and does it do your head in that your working for a living and they aren't? views?

    I don't read celebrity mags or anything - I haven't got a clue who's who nowadays. Everyone is supposed to have their 5 minutes of fame - but the reality tv 'stars' try to stick around long after people have lost interest in them - while the real up and coming talent doesn't get a look in because they don't 'sell' for a long time - everyone's after the quick money nowadays.

    When I was younger - there seemed to only be a few people about that were just famous for no reason - now the 'nobody's' seem to have taken over.

    TV companies obviously believe that because someone is popular on a reality show, they can make star material and because the viewing public tune in to see these horrendous cretins they continue to evolve. It's a new age phenomenon and until the public stop watching garbage it will carry on.

    I think you give them too much, or too little credit Dad. The TV companies know full well that their dealing with talentless zeros without an ounce of "star quality". They just understand how to play the general public for all their worth.

    Why go to the trouble of finding, then paying real talent to appear on Tv shows when they can get some numpty to do it for free to begin with, then just milk them for what their worth?

    It was just the "star material" I disagreed with. I was being a little pedantic I suppose, I just don't think "reality TV" celebrity and "star material" belong in the same sentence.
