Classing a person as a celebrity 24/02/09

So this is something I have pondering about lately.. what makes someone as celebrity?

I think that maybe I have the term celebrity wrong as I thought someone who is a celebrity is a talented person who has achieved high status in the media over a long period of time...

However it seems in this day and age you only need be on television or in the newspaper for a matter of minutes and your classed as a celeb and able to appear on all these I am a celeb shows!

For example.. today I was watching 'celebrity britons best dish' and Rafe was on it from the apprentice, now for me, he does not class as a celebrity.. he is a man that was on a reality TV show about people trying to be an apprentice for Sir Alan sugar!

So there we have the problem.. reality TV has made celebrities out of too many normal people! But where will stop!

Jade Goody has become world wide celebrity for having cancer, so has the 13 year old boy who just became a father!!!

I think that its ridiculous!

For me a celebrity is People like Brad Pitt, Kate Winslet, Barbara Windsor and Jamie Oliver. People that are famous for being extremely successful and not attention seeking wannabes!

If all these non celebs and celebs are getting tarred with the same brush then maybe we should think about making a new word for the wannabes.. like 'pleb'

I'm a pleb get me out of here

pleb big brother

pleb fat club

pleb come dine with me

I think it would work and this way I would be able to go "Hmmm i know not to have false hopes about this show because it has Plebs in it"

Anyways RANT over!
