Celebrity News: 5 Celeb Stories We Want to Stop Hearing

Updated on August 5, 2014

Don't get me wrong, I love following the latest celebrity gossip columns. I gush over the newest celebrity couples (well, the ones we totally want to happen), I ooh and awe over the celebrity wedding spreads, and I enjoy the official debuts of celebrity newborns. But, there comes a time when we have heard enough about the same old person, same old scandal, same old children, and same old couples.

[Although the Kardashians could have been included on this list (hello? It's called Keeping Up With the Kardashians for a reason), but they were a given. Besides, I would rather give you all a K-free hub.]

This article is a countdown of the 5 individuals, story lines, and/or events that have been extensively covered (to the point where it is beaten into our brains).




#5. Michelle Obama

I know what you're thinking, "they're the first family, not celebrities." To our dismay, the media seems to think otherwise. Even though they haven't been front and center in entertainment news in awhile, in the past seven years, we have heard more about their personal lives than Obama's plans to better our country.

Of course when we think of Michelle Obama it is less about her duties as first lady and more about her fashion choices. Recent headlines include "First Lady's Style Through the Years," "First Lady Style: Summer Love," "What Should the First Lady Wear to the Met Gala," "Michelle Obama's New Bangs," "Michelle O's Most Glam Gowns," and there is even a full website dedicated to the "trend-setting" First lady.

Let's be real here: Michelle "O" is not Jackie O. Jackie Kennedy was and always will be the the trendsetting first lady, and she had a husband who actually made a difference in this country. Mrs. Obama is the epitome of "wannabe Mrs. Kennedy." From her trying to make a statement every time she steps out of the White House to her themes for next years Christmas decoractions [a White House tradition started by Jackie herself]. So let's be sure to clear that up.


Selena Gomez & Justin Bieber

#4. Battle of the Exes

Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber have been an on-and-off again couple. The latest gossip magazines and E! Network never pass up on the opportunity to report their reunions and break-ups. Lately, these two seem to be constantly dueling, while also making the most out of their public appearances in order to make the other jealous. Justin Bieber seems to be the first to Instagram the newest pics of him surrounded by sexy ladies, and the media always points out how similar his flings look to Selena. Selena on the other hand tries her best to move on, but since break ups and hook ups are always present in Hollywood, she can only ignore so much.

Flings/Hookups of Selena Gomez (post-breakup):

  • Businessman, Tommy Chiabra
  • Model, Tanz Watson
  • Model Andre Hamann
  • One Direction's, Niall Horan

Flings/Hookups of Justin Bieber (post-breakup)

  • Jordan Ozuna
  • Milyn Jenson
  • Model, Yovanna Ventura
  • Hungarian model, Barbara Palvin
  • Victoria's Secret Model, Miranda Kerr (WTF?!)

It is quite clear who the instigator is--- as well as the one who has the most insecurity issues (*cough* Justin Bieber).

Don't get me wrong, I was just as obsessed with Jelena as anyone else; however, I am tired of this constant battle of the exes that celebrity media constantly keeps up with. Instead of informing, the media is only adding more fuel to the fire. Let them handle this out through photo wars on Instagram and let the audience decide when to indulge in their dirty laundry.

# 3. The Royal Family

Let's start with the individuals themselves. Prince William is the first born of Prince Charles and the late Princess Diana, and unlike his father, William is a likeable, down-to-earth, guy. Kate Middleton, like William, is also down-to-earth. Compared to royalty, Katherine [Kate] Middleton could have been considered a commoner. The two met during college, dated for a couple of years, separated for another, and finally rekindled the love they share for one another.

Since the engagement, Kate Middleton was always in the public eye for her classy yet conservative fashion. Fashion magazines across the world documented her latest every day wear, the dresses she chose to wear to events, and even included a section on how to re-create her looks.

Before the engagement, Will and Kate were briefly included in celebrity gossip magazines, just like any Hollywood on-again, off-again couple. Since the royal wedding it is almost as if they cannot make a single movement in their life without extensive coverage on it.

I can understand how much of a spectacle the Royal Family can be for Britons, even if the modern monarchy lacks the power that the past predecessors possessed. The monarchy in Britain is a simple of stability and leadership. Since Elizabeth II has been on the throne so long, she has been a constant during the lives of many Britons, and she has been able to forge many personal relationships in the past. She has been a pivotal player in re-gaining the respect of the people throughout the years. Surprisingly, it has been rumored that about 70-90% of their country would not be opposed to the monarchy having full power again.

For Wales, William and Duchess Kate's union brought back fond memories of the day that Lady Diana Spencer wed Prince Charles of Wales. She was a woman for the people, and many see that same drive in Kate. But for the rest of the world, the overkill of news coverage can grow tiresome and repetitive, and with all due respect, why do we care? I guess it goes to show how obsessed American's are with the idea of a modern fairytale. You have the dashing Prince who has fallen in love with a normal girl who later becomes a princess. I am all for the idea, and besides, William and Kate are both likeable people in their own right, but my problem stems from the American media's obsession with ditching all relevant news for the United States in order to block all stations with the royal affairs.

The Royal Wedding

The royal wedding, as much of a spectacle as it was, was a nonstop event that Americans wanted to vicariously experience for themselves. From magazines to news programs, the royal wedding was everywhere. I would have been content if they gave that much coverage to the actual wedding, but I do not need a 24 hour countdown to the big day while all I see is the front door to Westminster Abbey and reporters struggling to come up with something new to discuss about the union.

The Birth of Prince George

Another media frenzy, waiting for the birth of the new baby prince was completely outrageous. Like the royal wedding, awaiting for Prince George to come into the world, was aired for 24 hours but---- instead of staring at the door of Westminster Abbey, we spent 24 hours staring at a hospital door. I have nothing against the little guy, but what relevance does he possibly have besides being adorable to look at? Nothing.

Prince George's 1st Birthday

Obviously the baby of Cambridge is not just an ordinary child. Entertainment news and paparazzi have made sure to document the celebration. Recently, when William, Kate, and little George traveled to Australia, they were photographed throughout the whole trip, and baby George got over 1,000 presents from down under. Next we get a lovely spread of the couple and the bouncing baby heir for his 1st birthday. Magazines fawned over how cute he looked in his outfit, how adorable the party decorations were, and made sure to get a good idea of the millions of baby gifts the royal heir received. We have no choice in whether or not we would like to keep up with George taking his first steps, George's baby style, or George's intelligence and swimming abilities.

Also interesting to note, entertainment news specialists also felt the need to use fancy aging technology to predict what George will look like at 18 years old.

Enough of the hullabaloo!

# 2. MTV Starlets

MTV today is not what it used to be. Instead of music television it has become the #1 network for the successful reality shows that always include themes such as drunken antics, sex, and teen pregnancy. Although I enjoy reality television because of the entertaining aspect of the [unscripted] drama and random hookups that turn into relationships,it has also created intense fame wh*res. There are some reality stars that cannot seem to let go of all of the publicity after [their] shows end, and they constantly feel the need one up the crazy antics of other celebs in order to remain relevant.

Jersey Shore: Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi & Jennifer "Jwoww" Farley

Ahhh, the Jersey Shore. It taught us how to do the "Jersey turnpike," how to fist pump, and we learned the meanings of a guido, guidette, and a juice head.

Jersey Shore was one of the biggest reality TV shows that MTV ever produced. It aired from December 2009 to December 2012, and filmed in New Jersey, Miami, and Florence, Italy. The series followed the eight housemates while they spent their summer in the shore house--- while documenting their craziest moments.The original housemates consisted of Paul "Paulie-D"DelVecchio, Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi, Jenni "Jwoww" Farley, Micheal "The Situation" Sorrentino, Ronnie Ortiz-Magro, Samantha "Sammi Sweetheart" Giancola, Vinny Guadagnino, and Angelina Pivarnick. Due to friction between the housemates, Angelina was later replaced by Dina Nicole Cortese.

Out of all the cast mates, the ones who have seemed to get the most publicity since the show ended are Nicole and Jenni. Not only did they get their own spinoff show, Snooki & Jwoww, their whole lives seem to relevant enough to have constant segments about their relationships, children, wedding plans, family outings, and public appearances.

Since leaving the show, Nicole and Jionni LaVallehave welcomed their son, Lorenzo, into the world---- (and have another on the way). Also important to note: Nicole lost a ton of weight after leaving the shore house, and looks amazing. Jenni, on the other hand, still looks the same besides the amount of plastic surgery she has had since the earlier seasons of the show.

Now, in my opinion, I think that Nicole is content with either being or not being in the public eye, but she does not seem to strive so hard to get publicity. Jenni, whose relationship with finance and baby daddy, Roger, has seemed to be strained by her addiction to the limelight (as seen on Marriage Bootcamp: Reality Stars). Let's just hope that since welcoming daughter, Meilani Matthews, into the world, that her desire to air all of her dirty laundry subsides.

MTV Teen Moms: Farrah Abraham & Jenelle Evans

Now don't get me wrong, I see the original message that MTV was trying to send by producing the shows 16 and Pregnant,Teen Mom, and Teen Mom 2; however, the constant media attention has turned a show which once tried to instill the message of how trying teenage pregnancy can be, it has now turned into an option for instant fame. Although the teenage pregnancy rates have declined in recent years, there are still those that see the shows and say "I want to get pregnant so I can be on MTV." It is not the fault of MTV, but rather, the prevalence of the media attention in their personal lives as well as constantly being featured as front page news.

Farrah Abraham

Hands down the most annoying teen mom ever, Farrah Abraham continues to gain publicity, and she will go out of her way to get it. Unlike Jenelle, I think Farrah wants the fame, the glamor, and the limelight. Wikipedia includes in her biography: American television personality, author, musician (wtf?), and pornographic actress. Wow... what a resume. Whenever she is scrutinized for her uh--- decisions-- she defends her actions by saying that she does it to "provide a better life for her daughter." I can understand wanting to provide for your child and offer them a secure future, but the way Abraham does that just proves that she does it for herself, not her daughter. She wants to remain relevant, she wants the fame, and she wants the money. If she was all about providing for Sophia she could have said no to plastic surgery and botox and instead use that money to put into Sophia's college fund.

I don't understand why she thinks we still care. Her debut album received horrible reviews and was produced using auto-tune because she cannot sing. Now she has her own line of sex toys that she tries to pawn off on A-list celebrities whose relationships are in peril. News flash, Farrah, you're never going to be an A-list celebrity. Too bad the media coverage continues to get your hopes up while consistently covering how desperate you are. Get over yourself. Your 20 minutes of fame is over.

Jenelle Evans

Jenelle, Jenelle. Where do I even start? Aside from Amber (who had to transfer full custody of Leah to her biological father, Gary), Jenelle is the only mother who does not have custody of her son, Jace. Responsibly, she realized that she was not fit to raise Jace, and signed over temporary custody to her mother, Barbara. However, instead of taking that time to, I don't know, go to school and better her life, she instead constantly got mixed up with the wrong guys. I do not know where her co-dependency comes from, but it sure as hell as made her life a lot harder than it had to be. A few years ago, she was also diagnosed with bipolar disorder; however, that cannot be an excuse for her behavior because I have bipolar disorder, myself, and have not made as many mistakes as this woman has).

The thing that bothers me the most about Jenelle is that she has been so selfish in the past. For starters, the most selfless act a parent can do is know when it is best to give your child up for adoption. It is about understanding immediately that you are not in the right place to raise this child on your own, and therefore you should want your child to have everything that you want them to have but cannot give. I think Jenelle has the ability to be a great mother. The way she interacts with Jace and disciplines him is one of my favorite parts to watch. The one thing I had though, is when that positive interaction gets interrupted by Barbara yelling and Jenelle yelling back while Jace just cowers in another place. The violence, the foul language---- it is not good for Jace, and you can see that in his behavior. That child is going to grow up to have some kind of psychological problems (which you can already see through his behavior in the show).

I want to be supportive of Jenelle because I feel like lately (as shown in season 5b) she has been trying to get her life together. Well, besides having an abortion only to end up PLANNING to get pregnant a short time after with her boyfriend, Nathan. Out of all the guys that Jenelle has dated, I truly think that Nathan is a good guy, but he needs to get his drinking and temper under control. (Also--- you should not get pregnant only because you think it will save your relationship, or make the incessant fighting stop).

Another thing is that people are always going to have stuff to say about Jenelle, and there are always going to be people that hate on her through social media, but that doesn't mean she should respond to every little negative thing that is said about her. Just learn to let go, let people believe what they want, and move on. She's a mother of two now, come on, put the phone down, turn the social media off, and actually BE A MOTHER. The criticism will stop once she starts making the right decisions for her and for her kids.

When sh*t started getting weird

#1. Miley Cyrus

Miley Cyrus always seems to be caught in the most outrageous of moments. From her bizarre fashion statements to her infamous "Twerking," she does what she can to remain relevant. Unfortunately it is becoming difficult for Disney stars to truly break away from the Disney brand while continuing to remain a role model for young girls and teens. Miley Cyrus is the epitome of what "breaking away" from Disney looks like... a disaster. In order to shed the Hannah Montana name, Miley has had to go to extremes in order for people to know her as Miley Cyrus, and not just the undercover superstar that brought her fans and fame.

My problem with Miley isn't the fact that she wanted to reclaim her own identity separate from Disney, my problem is the fact that we know who she is, we know what she is about now, and yet she continues to behave in an raunchy fashion only to remain in the public eye every single week.

Some of her obnoxious moments include (in no particular order):

  • Filming herself twerking and uploading it online.
  • Her VMA performance featuring Robin Thicke.
  • The constant crotch grabs and absurd music videos.
  • Her eating Katy Perry's face while Katy was sitting front row at her concert.
  • Her wardrobe choices.
  • Always posing with her huge tongue hanging out of her mouth.


I understand the appeal in terms of celebrity gossip that Miley has on the media, but constantly updating the audience of her every room speaks volumes on what truly matters to our country--- and that is a sad thought. If only the media spent more time showcasing all of the celebrities that are good role models, but unfortunately, good behavior doesn't make for juicy television/magazines. It is sad that the second Miley Cyrus started to lose out to other stories, she posed a photo on Instagram of herself from the back, topless, facing a mountain top, with peace sign gestures in both hands. I don't know what is sadder, the media's fascination with her or the fact that she is a perfectly sane individual who does crazy sh*t to be popular. Miley Cyrus acts and dresses like she's completely whacked out; however, I think she straight up stinks of desperation.

Which celebs have you had enough of?

      Got to say, I'm sick of all of these celebs. Miley Cyrus is here in Australia at the moment, and just can't keep her tongue in her mouth.

      Totally, Miley Cyrus deserves to top the list. She is already a good singer, she doesn't need to do the antics. I was in a mall and they were playing wrecking ball. At first I was just caught by the voice, but later realized it was Miley. She can be all that without doing the other stuff and be more famous than notorious.

      Jackie, I was too young to truly know who Diana was, but I was in Kindergarten when she died, and I remember it being a very big deal for the whole entire world. I also remember growing up wanting a dress like Princess Di--- that long, beautiful train.....

      Suzzette, Aww I know its not their fault that the public eye cannot seem to get enough. I think they are an amazing couple, and they are so down-to-earth which is why it would be fair to give them their privacy.

      Thanks for all of your comments, I appreciate the time you all took to read.

      Quite a clever write! I enjoyed reading this so much and I have to agree with your choices. I do like the Royal Family and we have to admit we hear less of them than we ever did of Diana and Charles. William and Kate seem to know how to live under the radar and there have been few photos of George compared to when William was born. But, this was interesting to read and the celebrity I like the least is Miley Cyrus. She needs to keep her butt and tongue in place. LOL!

      @ LailaK,

      I agree 100%. No. 110% on the Beiber/ Gomez junk. And now it's the Beiber, Aaron Bloom spat. Uggh. Enough. And how many times do I have to see Kate, oops, princess Kate Middleton smile her plastic smile? What is her husband's last name?

      Same for Prince Charles . . . Charles What? Charles King?

      Harry Next King?

      Hi Sami, very entertaining hub here. I don't know all the celebs mentioned here, but the ones I do, I must agree with. Welcome to hub pages, if this is an indication of the quality of your hubs you will do well.

      I know that you are not a blind hater. You tell the truth from your heart. That is what makes you such a wonderful writer.

      Keep up the fine work.

      This was hilarious, Sami Hanson. It had me chuckling from the intro to Michelle Obama, who I adore by the way. But you are right, no one can touch Jackie O. I so agree with Miley Cyrus as numero uno, UGH! Good job with the presentation. Voted up, funny, and interesting.

      Sami,

      You are my type of writer! I literally LOVE this hub. And you are so right. Your five celeb's are correct. I voted Up and away on this hub which I fine well-written and truthful.

      On your voting for celebrities, Blake Shelton was my vote for seeing too much of. On the Country Music awards show every month, there he is boasting of his sex life with Miranda. Who needs to hear this?

      And then his so called "humor" with Luke Bryan. Yawn!

      Shelton will brag about having some DRANKS backstage then talk about Jesus in the next award given out. Make up your mind, Blake. I neither want to hear your monotone songs, your sex life tales and DRANKING stories. If you are truly in love with Jesus, try being moderate.

      I am sorry for rambling.

      I am looking forward to having you follow me.

      Kenneth

      I really enjoyed your hub! It was very entertaining to read it. And the list of celebrities you included is very accurate! I was personally sick and tired of hearing all the drama about Bieber and Gomez and about "how perfect" the royal life seems to be. Voted up!
