Things have certainly changed over time, with so many things coming on and improving in a big way but, when it comes to the entertainment industry, it seems that there is something that has changed for the worse over the past few years. While people have always been interested in the whole celebrity culture, it seems that now, more than ever, there is almost an invasion of the privacy of these stars.
Hilary Duff has been working in the entertainment industry for many years now and she has been talking about the changes she has seen taking place during her time in the business. Hilary says that she can sympathise with the likes of Selena Gomez and other young stars, as they have to put up with there being so many different rumours about their private life, many of which are not even close to being true.
Duff explained, "I think it's hard. I just feel for them. God, how do I answer that? It was just a different time for me. When I was just coming onto the scene, it was when all the gossip and stuff started. But now it's such an extreme level and there's such a focus on personal life. It must really be a tough struggle. I feel it, and I'm not dealing with it on the level they're dealing with it on."
She added, "I think the saving grace is, [Selena Gomez] makes great music. Tons people love her... The public is smart to gossip magazines and that they're just trying to make money. At the end of the day they love those people and they love their music."
Unfortunately for these young stars, it does not look like things are going to improve any time soon and it seems that they are going to have to accept that their private life will no longer be as private as they might like.
