Celebrities make the world go round, line tabloids’ pockets

Celebrity couples, believe it or not, are a huge part of how the movie industry makes money.  Some celebrity couples fall in love, although, most celebrities are together because of paparazzi. Along with movie trailers, advertisements and posters, celebrity couples help the industry make money.

One of the main reasons celebrity couples are together is because of the money.

A simple image of two actors side-by-side walking on the beach turns into major revenue for tabloids such as Us Weekly, People Magazine and Star Magazine. Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie and Kanye West and Kim Kardashian, all of these romances stand as examples. One must consider what their true purpose for dating, or marrying, is.

Many celebrity couples have gotten together just to endorse their own project or another company. The celebrity would hire paparazzi from a certain company to take pictures; the actor would get lots of money. The photos would be advertising them and they would be advertising a movie, or another project that the celebrity was working on. Usually, the cameraman and the crew try to make the photos look natural, candid and real. All of this is a lie.

Instead of making the pictures look natural, almost all of the pictures from these elaborate shoots are edited with hours of photoshop. The image that celebrity couples get from the media is completely fake.

On very rare occasions, celebrity couples share about their relationship. Even so, celebrity couples have the paparazzi plan images.

An article from “E! News” states, “Good photos can sell over and over again, from South America to Australia, earning a smart paparazzo up to $500,000 yearly.”  

Not all pictures taken from a paparazzi are good. One photo that a paparazzo took of Brangelina sold for one million dollars.

Celebrity couples contribute to letting the movie business earn billions of dollars every year and paparazzi lets the movie business boom. Next time you see a picture of a celebrity couple, consider why it was taken.
