Gayatri: How much of the celebrity news we read and hear is PR releases by the celebrity? I feel that it is 90% plus.
Great question. In today’s day and age a lot of what you hear and read is PR driven. There is very little actual accurate news or information that is allowed to surface on the front pages or diary pages of tabloids and publications. However, since the entertainment industry is a two-way street where the press and celebs have to co-exist on a need basis, you will often read made up quotes, denials, or false stories planted in publications that the PRs have access to.
Which is why there is a rise in the number of “blind items” where the gossip can be put out without directly naming the celebrity! But trust your “Industrywalla” to give you 100% fool proof inside khabar that can’t be diluted by any PR machinery ;)
