Writer's Block: The Right to Privacy

Should some parts of celebrities' lives be off-limits to the public, or is giving up privacy a fair price for being famous?
As a private person myself, I would say that some parts of celebrities' lives should be off-limits. In this day and age, it can be difficult to keep some part of your life to yourself but I think you can still do it, provided that you don't SELL those parts of your life. If you advertise your children and your home and your sex life, people will think it's fair game to ask you about them and to invade those parts of your life in whatever way they see fit. If you guard those parts of your life and make sure that your friends and family know how to be on guard as well, it makes journalists' lives a lot harder and your life a lot easier. If you reach a certain level of fame, you'll always be recognised but that doesn't mean you have to give up a semblance of a normal life altogether. Look at Britney Spears, then look at Christina Aguilera. Of course, Britney had a very public meltdown but she'd already been living most of her life in the public years before that (it didn't help that she'd dated someone else who was famous for a number of years). Christina, on the other hand, seems very careful about press access to her husband and her baby and the rest of her life that doesn't include singing. Result: she's still married.
