Personalities & Portrait
A celebrity is a widely-recognized or famous person who commands a high degree of public and media attention. The word stems from the Latin adjective celeber meaning famous or celebrated. While fame is generally considered a necessary precondition for celebrity status, it is not always sufficient. There has to be a level of public interest in the person, which may or may not be connected to the reason they are famous. Many celebrities are only so for a certain amount of time, perhaps after appearing on a television program or doing something to cast them into the public eye. Mass entertainment personalities such as soap opera actors or music stars are likely to become celebrities even if the person deliberately avoids media attention. But only a small number of celebrities can be considered 'global', in that their fame has spread across the English-speaking world and even into non-English-speaking cultures.
