Entertainment News: Impossible to Avoid (beat blog)

by: Lauren Wilson

Entertainment news is everywhere.  It’s topics include anything from the newest movies, the most recent fancy award shows, the hottest celebrity couples, music and the craziest celebrity scandals.  Entertainment news is the kind of news that everyone knows about, even it they aren’t seeking it out.

Through television, radio, magazine covers, billboards, clothing lines, social media..you name it…news about the rich and famous spread like wild fire.  Kim Kardashian gets married, divorced, then becomes pregnant with her current boyfriend Kanye West.   Did I seek out that information? Nope, it is just common knowledge that I know because the press did a good job at getting that information, and putting it EVERYWHERE.

While searching for entertainment news shows, I stumbled across CISIONnavigator.com and their article, Top 10 Entertainment News & Gossip TV Programs.  Here are the top 5 entertainment shows according to them:

  1. Entertainment Tonight
  2. The Insider
  3. Access Hollywood
  4. TMZ
  5. EXTRA

According to Complex.com and their article, The 10 Hottest Entertainment Reporters, Maria Menounos is the #1 hottest entertainment reporter.

Not only is she one of the entertainment news show EXTRA’s host (along side her parter in crime Mario Lopez) she is also NY Times Best Selling author of The EveryGirl’s Guide To Life, and the founder of Afterbuzztv.com.

Now, Menounos and Lopez are only TWO of many entertainment news reporters out there.  After I did more research, and some intensive Twitter stalking, I found a few more honorable reporters out there.  The one that caught my eye on Twitter was Perez Hilton, and man can the guy tweet.

It just so happened to be the night of the Golden Globes when I stumbled upon his Twitter.  Here are a few things he had to say:

There were several other tweets that made me giggle a little bit, but I didn’t find them appropriate to post on my blog for the world to see. 🙂

So, this post is a little taste of what this blog will bring to the table.  I intend on finding even more awesome entertainment news reporters, and keeping readers updated on their stories, methods of reporting and all the juicy celebrity gossip that is so hard to ignore!
