Media has always been the best way to project a celebrity. Good or bad publicity keeps the celebrity in the news. This task is now a specialized task where all the celebrities have created a special job for a personal reporter and journalist. The pressure to be in news is so great that a person is appointed especially to handle the media and keep afloat news of the celebrity. This has given prominence and major media attention direct to the reporter himself.
The reporters constantly maintain a public profile of that celebrity which has led to them being identified with that celebrity and they themselves become celebrities in a way. Celebrities exhibit a glamorous lifestyle loaded with pomp and show. Being in such close proximity with the celebrity there are chances of either of them being swept of the feet or ‘losing heart’.
According to social psychologist Zick Rubin, love is characterized by attachment, caring and intimacy. The star and the reporter share a lot of time together, probably much more time that they spend with their own families or friends and the three characters of love are bound to develop. Though each person can feel the chemistry working it is a matter of ethical conflict to ask each other out or to express the emotion which is basically a deviation from being professional.
As reporters, one is very unsure of how to ask the celebrity out. Add some wit to your conversation and body language plays a very important role in any relationship. You as a reporter can understand the stress and pressure the celebrity goes through and you are the trash can for him/her to offload the pressures. The celebrity does have affection for you which is basically an attachment. A slightly free day is the right time to ask him/her to go out with you. Put it in a humorous manner like asking him/her with a smile of course “how about me being the envy of people when they publically a well dressed me with you today evening?” or “how about making more news when we are spotted together at the restaurant?”
The media and entertainment industry has merged to grow hand in hand. Manufacturing of celebrity as a brand is the responsibility of the media reporter. The reporter is awed by the person whom he/she has made into a celebrity. Enjoying an evening out will work as an incentive to work harder to up the image of the celebrity. So reporters understand the psychology and feel free to ask the celebrity out when you feel like living out your fantasy.
