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

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...
