Abstract

Celebrity coverage is defined as mediated attention provided to well‐known individuals who through their state of fame become newsworthy. Coverage of celebrities ranges from stories about famous people in categories such as Hollywood, sports, politics, and music as well as celebrities who become famous through digital media. Celebrity journalism focuses on the process of becoming famous, known as the celebrification of individuals, and the influence celebrities have on politics, culture, and activism known as celebritization. Through an increasing interest in its content, celebrity coverage has turned into an economic good for media organizations. While celebrities continue to rely on mass media channels, digital media have changed not only celebrity culture, but also celebrity journalism.
