If the perennial popularity of search terms like Britney Spears is any indication, celebrity news is significantly more popular on the Internet than traditional news as reported by newspapers and magazines. Thousands of blogs cover both gossip and entertainment news.
One of the most highly trafficked celebrity news blogs is Perez Hilton, written by Mario Lavandeira, the self-proclaimed "Queen of All Media." Perez Hilton has garnered attention for its brash style, doodles on Hollywood photos and outing of gay celebrities. Following on the success of Perez Hilton, AOL created TMZ.com which was then spun out into the TMZ television program. TMZ has gained notice for publishing several exclusives ahead of the printed tabloids. Dlisted, Gawker, and Popsugar are other notable celebrity news blogs.
With the popularity of individual celebrity news blogs has come celebrity news aggregators which get content from various sources or from users. Celeb-o-Matic collects information each hour from all of the top gossip sites so you can see what the blogosphere is talking about at any given moment.
