Examples of celebrity in a Sentence

  1. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    About 140+ years ago, on May 20, 1873, the U.S. patent 139,121 covering the invention of 'Jeans' was issued to two American inventors, Jacob Davis and Levi Strauss. Most of the inventors, even today, secretly wish that they had invented Jeans, because of the beauty and grace, coupled with simplicity and comfort, that blue Jeans have created in our world. I love wearing Jeans as casual wear during the weekends. I also think that whenever a celebrity or a beauty or a genius wears jeans, it always makes the most impactful fashion statement.

  2. Philip Brooks:

    Being a celebrity, he's often followed by the paparazzi and he's aware of that. He was on his way home, and they happen to know his route.

  5. Victoria Hoffman:

    A chance to meet your favorite icon –maybe a famed artist or photographer- may be as little as $10,000. But a celebrity or athlete may expect a donation of no less than $50-100,000.
