Celebrity is fame and public attention in the media, usually applied to a person, or group of people (celebrity couple, family etc.), or occasionally, to animals or fictional entities. Celebrity status is often associated with wealth (commonly referred to as fame and fortune) and fame can often provide opportunities to make money.
Successful careers in sports and entertainment are commonly associated with celebrity status; political leaders often become celebrities. People may also become celebrities due to media attention for their lifestyle, wealth, or controversial actions, or for their connection to a famous person.
Throughout recorded history there are accounts of people who attracted the trappings of celebrity which would be recognized today.
Athletes in Ancient Greece were welcomed home as heroes, had songs and poems written in their honour and received free food and gifts from those seeking celebrity endorsement.Ancient Rome similarly lauded actors and notorious gladiators and Julius Caesar appeared on a coin in his own lifetime (a departure from the usual depiction of battles and divine lineage).
Celebrity (also known as Celebrities or Lunchbox) is a party game where teams play against each other to guess as many celebrity names as possible before time runs out.
Before play begins, every player receives several slips of paper (usually 10 for one round, or 5 or fewer for multiple rounds), and writes the name of a different celebrity on each. The names must be kept secret. All of the names are then placed in a hat, or similar receptacle.
What's a legal name? While the game is called Celebrity, the names in the hat are not limited to those of famous figures from popular culture. Other acceptable names are those of fictional characters (e.g., Sherlock Holmes), famous animals (e.g., Lassie), or any name that is well known to the group of players. Players may decide at this point on a guideline for how obscure the names can be, such as A name is permissible if it is expected to be familiar with at least half of the players.
After all the names are in the hat, the players are split into two or more teams of three or more players.
"Celebrity" is a song that takes a humorous look on show business and the many problems that current entertainers endure, along with the notion that anyone can be famous as a result of reality television programs.
