1 Corinthians 13: 1 & 13

If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal.

And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

Some people may be interested in celebrities’ history, lifestyle and love affairs as they are public and well-known figures, but I think it is unnecessary for celebrities to make their private lives public.
Firstly, celebrities are humans too and they can enjoy the human right just exactly like what we can. When we need privacy, when we need spaces, when we do not want to be offended, why do we dig up other’s privacy? Why do we mix celebrities’ love affairs with our hypothesis and spread it out? Do to others as you would have them do to you.
Secondly, digging up celebrities’ privacy may cause serious psychological damage on them. Like Gillian Chung, she has been destroyed after the disclosure of her scandal and she has therefore traumatically hurt.
Some people may say that public figures like celebrities should be role models for the public, especially teenagers, so they have to keep themselves clean from vice. Some others even claim that digging up their privacy can deliver a message of doing bad things will receive punishment to teenagers. However, that’s unfair. Celebrities are just human. They are not saints. They may sometimes do wrong things but they need a chance to turn a new leaf. Under great pressure from the public, it can be difficult for them to do so.
On the whole, celebrities’ privacy should be respected. Otherwise, awful consequences may occure.
