To what extent does the public have the right to know about the private lives of public figures? This question should always come into our minds each time we want to find out more and more about the lives of public figures in our country and abroads.
Each one of us has the right to intimacy and this is also the case of famous persons because, despite their social status, they are also human beings who need to be respected from this point of view. However, mass-media and paparazzi are continuously hunting after them, trying to find out some spicy information about their professional and private lives. They do this in order to feed the public's desire to keep in touch with the lastest news regarding the lives of public figures.
From here we should infer the fact
that public figures have the right to their own privacy and that there are cases when they undergo terrible moments from different reasons. It is the moment when they wish no paparazzi would follow them nor take pictures as they don't feel like in the best mood to give interviews or answer stupid questions. Many times they have to disguise themselves as not to be recognized by the paparazzi who would come for one more interview. All this represents a stress for public persons which they don't have why to stand.
On the other hand, the public has the right to know some facts about the private lives of public persons from reasons such as appreciation or just simple curiosity. Finding more about a person you admire helps you know that person better and build up an opinion about his life and ambitions. The public is very curious to find out interesting facts about famous people and the mass-media has to fulfill the task of informing the audience. Newspapers, magazines, shows on TV all have as subjects of discussion what has recently happened to a famous pop star,what is the latest car that Puff Diddy bought for him, where did Jeniffer Lopez spend her last holiday or who is the secret lover of Justin Timberlake.
As I take it, all this need of being permanently informed with spicy details comes from people's wish to escape the routine and have new and new subjects to discuss when drinking the tea with their friends or family. However, we should respect other's right to privacy, too.
