Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? Television, newspapers, magazines and other media pay too much attention to the personal lives of famous people such as public figures and celebrities. Use specific reasons and details to explain your opinion.

Any ideas on how should I write this essay piece? Thank You..

this is my suggestion for your essay structure;

Para1 - Introduction - introduce your topic with one or two strong sentences and state your opinion (agree, disagree or both) on the topic statement.

Para 2 - Body paragraph - give your first reason why you hold that opinion. Support this reason with an example.

Para 3 - Body paragraph - give your second reason why you hold that opinion. Support this reason with an example.

Para 4 - Conclusion - Summarize what you said above very briefly and re-instate your opinion to conclude .

you can have more and more paras if you have time and ideas in the body. :)

I agree with what dumi is saying and also think about what you should write as your thesis... I recommend saying "how and why people are so into celebrities lives and so on... and why figure out why people should worry about their own lives and their families instead of others. Hope this helps

Hi, Here are some suggestions:
Introduction: Start with the role of media, for example: We live in a world that is relatively affected by medium which have changed the contemporary century to the communication one. Many people, nowadays, view medium such as newspaper, TV, and the like as the tools for distributing the news. Some individuals think that the main part of these news are allocated to the personal lives of famous people such as actors and actress, politicians, etc. In my own opinion, the lives of these types of people are newsworthy and it is reasonable that medium concentrate on their lives. The question is "how the well-know people's lives are attractive for medium?".

Body:1) famous people are always function as a model for individuals of a society. For this, their behavior are more important for people.
2) Sense of curiosity is another factor. Many people like to gain some information about individuals who are different from others.
3) The third reason is that the famous people's lives are interesting because they are usually well-off and it is important for ordinary people to know how they obtain their wealth and for what purposes they spend it on. In fact, money is the main elements that draws attention of all people, which it can be found in the lives of celebrities, actors/actress, sports professionals, etc.


4) You can also writ a paragraph in the body for opposite opinion. For example, you can say that recent events in the world such as various wars, have changed this attitude of medium toward the news and they try to show the role of their countries in such events. In fact, the political issues are going to replace the subjects like personal life of famous people

conclusion:Reword the introduction
