Social networking diminishes celebs’ glamour and mystery, says Pixie Lott
Washington: British singer Pixie Lott has revealed that today’s celebrities are no longer ‘proper stars’ as their lives are open books on social networking sites.
The ‘Mama Do’ hitmaker is a frequent user of Twitter.com and has more than a million ‘friends’ on Facebook, but she says she wants to scrap the websites as they ruin the glamour and mystery of fame.
“Maybe we should get rid of social networking. We don’t have proper stars anymore and things like Twitter are partly to blame,” Contactmusic quoted her as telling Live magazine.
“I long for the old days of Marilyn Monroe and Audrey Hepburn, stars who had real glamour and mystique.
“We only knew so much about their lives, the rest was a mystery. They’d often come out with these wonderful quotes - you wouldn’t be reading their Twitter updates every two minutes. They never looked ordinary - and they would never be photographed jogging in the park.
“That’s how stars should be. Having said that, my fans would be really upset if I stopped tweeting. So I guess a loss of mystique is the price I’ve had to pay,” she added.
