Celebrity is a condition of fame and broad public recognition of a person or group as a result of the attention given to them by mass media. An individual may attain a celebrity status from having great wealth, their participation in sports or the entertainment industry, their position as a political figure, or even from their connection to another celebrity. 'Celebrity' usually implies a favorable public image, as opposed to the neutrals 'famous' or 'notable', or the negatives 'infamous' and 'notorious'.
A celebrity is a person who is widely recognized and often famed or idolized by a significant number of people, due to his or her accomplishments, prominence in a certain field, or media visibility.

A celebrity is a person, who has a prominent profile and commands some degree of public fascination and influence in day-to-day media.
