spoiled junkies hoarding all their cash living in 200 bedroom mansions with personal servants and everything, self obsessed,caring only about their own wealth, and getting married/getting divorced about 10 times a year. Sure some celebrities have talent, but do they really deserve 10 million bucks a year because of how they look?

consider this, lindsay lohan is an actress whos job it is to play someone in a movie, but your next door neighbor is a fireman whos job it is to save lives. Which do you think is harder to do, putting your life on the line to save other people, or pretending to be someone your not? Now think about this, who gets paid about 30 times as much as the other person?

now think about this, a few years ago some guy saved another guy who was trapped in the subway rails by lying on him and pushing him to the floor, now that took some guts, while on the same day, jennifer lopez just came out with a new hit album two weeks later, the guy who saved someones life is forgotten, but people are still gossiping and saying how jennifers album is so "hot" in fact, years from now were STILL talking about how jennifer lopez is a great singer/actress/skank whatever
celebrities are overated and dont deserve fame, money, or anything else they take for granted, such as getting an airplane for christmas or owning 4 ferarris. stupid celebrity

1. Modern day monarch.
2. Those with pride which exceeds dollars and "sense."
3. Social upper-class minority on similar evil level of sneakiness as a Lawyer or Politician.
1. "Queen Elizabeth, who? Long Live Her Majesty Jennifer Lopez, and her foul royal Hollywood underlings!"
2. "That guy's a real fuck. Look at the way which he struts around as if he were a celebrity."
3. "Power marriages, millions of unjust dollars, social 'elite' controlling minds across the nations; Celebrity power."

Could be considered to be a concept or perhaps an illness or condition.

It is important to distinguish between someone who is just famous and someone who is a celebrity however, the two are not mutually exclusive. Someone who is famous is merely well-known whereas a celebrity is someone who engages in celebrity behaviour, for example, appearing in “Celebrity” magazines such as OK and Hello in pictures designed to show how fabulously wealthy/good looking they are; appearing in magazines under such articles titles as “How I lost 50 pounds in 4 days!” or “How I overcame some kind of heartbreak!” like any evolved, thinking person gives a shit. For Christ’s sake, how insecure are these people.

Celebrities are confused. They have lost sight of what important in life i.e. spiritual fulfilment and well being of all people, and now cling to their own celebrity status as though it is that which keeps them alive. It has become the sickly sweet teat from which they must be constantly nourished in order to feel like a functioning member of society whereas in fact they are a plague on the society they crave acceptance from or a feeling of belonging to. We would all be better off if they just went away.

Theirs is indeed a cruel fate: their status suggests to them importance and acceptance yet they are simply one of too many soulless ciphers existing in some kind of sub-human circle of self-perpetuating self-promotion.
Posh Spice: a celebrity so helplessly self-absorbed that her own promotion is all she has left.

J-Lo: The one human being in the world upon which I would gladly wish death.

To name but two from an endless list consisting of unmitigated sewage constantly poluting our precious, precious world with their own bile.

1. A loser who walks on red carpets and gets more eyes than a Shelby Cobra.

2. Someone who gets money that they don't deserve.

3. Someone who is perceived a deity in American culture.
Stop focusing on celebrity issues. Who cares who got married/divorced/cheated on/or has a baby, everyone else does!

And for those damn teenage girls: Ignore these people, they are not important, they are not a role model who you believe is posisitive influence.

I condemn celebrities because they are stuck-up morons who can't do anything good for the world and are a distraction to real issues. They are artificial people, and I am not jealous of them, just don't pay any attention to them, and anything so see in a damn supermarket or whatever, don't buy it if you see their name/face on it. It's pointless shit, really, it is...

In a sense I agree with all of the definitions here. However, a distiction must be drawn between celebrities and actors/musicians. Actors/musicians work relatively hard to become succesful in there chosen profession, and despite all the contests that provides lazy TV execs with reality TV, very few actors/musicians make it big. A celebrity on the other hand is somewhat opposite, i.e. they are famous without trying very hard to earn fame.
Actor - Johnny Depp
Musician - Dave Ghrol (Please forgive me if i've misspelled his name)
Celebrity - Paris Hilton

Just a regular person with lots of money and lots of attention.
Jack, "Would you consider me a celebrity?"
Frank, "Go buy me a soda."
Jack, "Think I've got a million dollars or something?"
Frank, "Then no."

Only about 5% of celebrities actually have talent and contribute to society. Celebrities like Paris Hiltonare just a waste of oxygen and offer nothing besides sex appeal.
A celebrity is the thing of the past, with celebrities like Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie there will be no future.
