Admit it..do you read the media trash..National Enquirer, star, globe, Examiner, mirror, etc? I am guilty from time to time..It is a habit..to see these rich, successful people having the same problems as everyone else..Do we enjoy when they get in trouble, flip out, get fat, break ups?..I guess I read it sometimes because I do want to see the crazy things that they will do next...sometimes I will even think they are normal when they will surprise me with some of their wild life style..weird how some people handle money..and media following their every move..sometimes I feel sorry for them..so much jeolousy follows their every move..

I am not interested in this sort of press. My mother buys sometimes.For me the normal people arround me are more interesting that so-called stars and famous people.I dont care will Paris Hilton go to the jail. Who is Paris Hilton? One product of the medias. And this press sells this product. But i dont wanna buy.

it is really best not to get started because it is addictive!

Yes as much as I hate to admit it, sometimes they do catch my eye. I never buy them but if I find one laying around I do pick it up and read it. I truly feel bad for the celebrities that get hounded by the Paparazzi. No Privacy , no chance of just taking a walk with your family. I guess that is one of the prices you pay when you became that famous. Its still sad that it speaks of society in such a way that we do not care what rules of humanity that we are breaking.

Yeah, I think I am normal compared to many of the Hollywood famous people. I am addicted to these magazines. I usually do Star, Us Weekly, Life & Style, National Enquirer and some other ones. Each week, I am at the grocery store buying more of these magazines. I know I could easily read it all online for free, but it's much more fun to sit in bed and read it. I actually think it's fun to watch some of the actors/actresses that I do not like getting in trouble or having things happening. Tom Cruise, Angelina Jolie, Paris Hilton to name a few. LOL I do love the drama of Hollywood.

I don't read any of them regularly, but once in awhile, I ill pick one up if something catches my eye on the cover. I think they are harmless as long as people understand that there are times they are taken out of context and the situation is somewhat different than what it appears. However, I do not feel sorry for the stars. In this day and age, they know what they are getting into if they choose that life. They could make another choice. Just my opinion.

No- because it doesn't show that they have the same troubles as everyone else. All it shows is that the people who write for those rags have great imaginations. 95% of what is in those things isn't true anyway. Why would you waste your time on that trash?
