What celebrity gossip tells us about our own lives

LaineyGossip is the one celebrity gossip blog I make sure to read every day and the only one I recommend to friends.

Blogger Lainey, aka Elaine Lui, strikes a perfect balance of snark, analysis and breaking news in posts which often make me laugh out loud.

And for any of you who feel bad for taking part in celebrity gossip, check out her recent TEDx Vancouver talk in which Lainey argues that stars need the coverage to remain relevant, explains how today’s tabloids are not that different from ancient Egyptian Hieroglyphics and shows what gossip says about us a society.

If you have a spare 20 minutes today, I recommend taking a look at the video below.
