It seems we can’t get enough of celebrities today. Our TV screens, magazines and newspapers are filled as never before with famous singers, actors, models, even footballers and chefs. But what is fame really like when you achieve it? Does it fulfill its promise? Journalist David Gritten has spent years meeting the globally famous, including the Beatles, Madonna, Hugh Grant and Julia Roberts. Here he gives us a revealing, sometimes shocking insight into the glittering, fascinating and often downright bizarre world of modern celebrity, from Elton John’s tantrums and Geri Haliwell’s reinvention to Melanie Griffith’s rehab website and the stalker who want s to become President. The author concludes that being famous is a far more troubling, complex, even dangerous phenomenon than it at first appears to be, that you cannot court celebrity purely on your terms and playing the fame game always comes at a price. And yet, despite the flipside of fame, why do so many stars still seem addicted to it?
