What would happen if the celebrities went from being over-covered by journalists to becoming journalists themselves?
We are now finding out.
The next trend will be celebrity-journalists who will cover other celebrities. It will spread to other fields after that. Celebrity dentists, celebrity podiatrists, celebrity drivers (most of these functions will be handled by personal assistants).
And soon, there will be nothing left but celebrities. And you’ll love it and you’ll buy-in just the way we all buy-in to the fact that Madonna’s daily routine is actual news.
Look at it this way. Pretend you have a major toothache. The pain is extreme. You can either go to a real dentist or you can can go see Beyonce.
