While people may gain celebrity status as a result of a successful career in a particular field, in other cases, people become celebrities due to media attention for their extravagant lifestyle or wealth; for their connection to a famous person; or even for their misdeeds. Celebrities may be known around the world, within a specific country; or within a region.
