Celebrity Blogs

Thursday, September 04, 2003
Through another site this morning I ended up on a celebrity website and started wondering how many celebrities keep up websites themselves, i.e. how many of them have weblogs. I did a quick search on google and found this list. Some of these I have never heard of before. I browsed through Melanie Griffith's site b/c it was listed on the first search results I received. Some of these seem to be pretty interesting, but others are so self-absorbed. It's like they are running their own fan club or something. I think the only celebrity site I would really be interested in reading is one that was like all of ours…just daily bull-shit and what is going on in their lives. I can see your glossies and filmographies all over the internet…when I come to a weblog that isn't what I am looking for. Yes, I have links to pages about myself, 100 things, links to know about the people I am talking about, but my site is not a tribute to me (although I believe one should be…hee hee)! Anyway, I guess my point is that it would be interesting to read the daily thoughts and goings-on of some celebrities, whether they be movie stars, athletes, authors, TV personalities, or whatever without all the glam and hype like a fan club site would have - including stories about what goes on behind the scenes, or in the dressing rooms, locker rooms, whatever. Which famous person's blog would you be interested to read?
