名人八卦
Celebrity Gossip

【intro 今日导读】

Everyone has a different way to relax. Some people might exercise, and others might watch a lot of TV. There are people who relax by learning about the celebrities they love. These fans follow the personal lives of famous people by reading tabloids.

But tabloids often write things that aren’t true about celebrities. This means that a lot of people have negative feelings about celebrity gossip. Reading about celebrity gossip can be considered a guilty pleasure since some people think it’s useless.

Jessica tells Marni that she is obsessed with tabloids. Find out more in today’s English lesson about a guilty pleasure.

【Dialogue 情景对话】

Jessica:  Marni?

Marni:  Yes?

Jessica:  I’m a little embarrassed to admit it, but I have a really odd guilty pleasure.

Marni:  What is it?

Jessica:  I am obsessed with tabloids.

Marni:  What?

Jessica:  I just love celebrity gossip. I know it’s probably trash to a lot of people. But I just love it.

Marni:  It just seems so mindless. I just don’t understand why you’d be so interested in the lives of people you don’t know. There are so many more important issues in the world today like famine, and war, and climate change. Really, celebrity gossip, Jessica?

Jessica:  I know. It’s a strange obsession with pop culture. I am obsessed with the news, too. But I do like the mindless celebrity gossip now and then.

Marni:  Well, I guess we all need our little mental breaks.

Jessica:  Yes, exactly. Thanks for understanding.

Marni:  Sure.
