In the past, it took a long time for celebrity gossip to reach the masses. The numerous print magazines that look for this type of news need over a month in order for the news to reach the readers. Even those who use the daily newspaper have to wait for up to a day to get the gossip. And daily newspapers are not a good source for celebrity related news since they cater towards general news items instead. With the advent of the Internet, it is possible for readers to get celebrity news a lot faster. The celebrity gossip print publications have their own websites as well. There are also many other websites that are dedicated solely to celebrity related stuff.
The traditional print publications for celebrity news have their own websites. In most cases, the news stories that will eventually end up in the print publication will show up first on the newsstand. There are some cases where there is content that is only available in the print version. That is why some people choose to purchase the print version. A lot of people prefer reading a magazine or newspaper rather than on an electronic screen with a computer for cell phone. This is especially true for those with vision problems who cannot handle the small fonts that are on a computer screen.
There are also websites that are not linked to any print publication. They may be related to TV shows that cover this topic. Or they may be just standalone websites that like to talk about celebrity gossip. Many of these websites have more than just celebrity news. They also have discussion forums where fans can talk about the latest happenings in Hollywood with their favorite celebrities. This can make the process of reading about celebrity gossip even more enjoyable. Fan reaction is often fun to read and to reply to. That is why a lot of people prefer online venues for celebrity stuff rather than the traditional print publication.
The speed of news has never been faster. If a celebrity says something on his own Twitter feed and removes it quickly, it is too late. A lot of fans and paparazzi will have already seen it and taken a screen shot. Definitely online is the fastest way to get the latest dish on celebrities.
