We love our celebrities, and we want to know just about everything that’s happening in their lives.
Usually, we rely on tabloids to get sensational information about their lives, but many of them are now sharing controlled information about their lives with the public through their social media platforms and with the help of public image consultants.
A select few use blogging as a means to share events that are happening in their life and build their personal brand.
Those are the ones we will focus on in this article.
In this article, I will share a list of the most popular celebrity bloggers on the planet and also explain the motivation and core focus of their blogs.

What Is A Celebrity Blogger?
Celebrity bloggers are people who became famous as a result of their accomplishments in their industry or field of discipline, such as music, film, politics, science, business, sports, writing, etc.
Celebrity bloggers are usually famous before they start blogging, although some exceptions become celebrities because of the popularity or notoriety of their blogs.
This also explains how celebrities differ from influencers. Influencers gained popularity because the content they produce on their social profiles gained such authority in their niche that they were able to build a dedicated group of followers.
Celebrity bloggers aren’t relying on their content to become famous; they already are.
Their stardom means there is an army of fans that are always ready to read anything they post on their blogs, and for business owners, this could be an opportunity to work with a celebrity to help promote your product to their audience.
Which Celebrities Have Blogs?
While many of the celebs on this list post about their lives, they also use their blogs as a medium to share their passions and business interests with their readers.

His real name is Mario Armando Levandeira Jr., and he is one of the few people on this list who didn’t become famous because of their accomplishments in the entertainment sector.
Mario became a celebrity in his own right because of the notoriety of his blog. The digital newspaper covers gossip on sensational events in the lives of celebrities, including scandals, divorces, childbirth, and much more.
Of course, given that he built a whole career out of sharing information that famous people want to keep secret, his website is hated by members of the Hollywood elite.
