Who doesn’t like to keep up with celebrities? Well, lots of people, but this article isn’t for them. There are tens of thousands of mobile apps available across any number of devices, and given the enormous popularity of celebrity news and gossip sources like Entertainment Tonight and TMZ, it is no surprise that there are apps that cater to the legions of dedicated super-fans. Here are just a few of them.

Personal celebrity apps

A lot of celebrities have their own personal mobile apps, which is great, because without them, we would have to rely on TMZ to tell us what Jay-Z is doing on any given day. Chuck Norris, Britney Spears, Samuel L. Jackson, Lady Gaga, and many more have personal apps.

With these apps, celebrities keep followers updated and informed on their lives, their interests, their careers and their latest projects. These apps bring fans into the lives of celebrities on a level not matched by gossip sources. Because what better source is there for info on’s latest musical project than himself? Oh, and speaking of celebrity gossip sources…

Celebrity gossip and news apps

All the biggest celebrity gossip sources have their own apps to keep followers informed. Fans can download the People Celebrity News Tracker or apps from TMZ, Entertainment Tonight, MTV News, E! Online and more to make sure that they never miss a celebrity bad hair day, marriage, break up, arrest or fashion mistake.

Celebrity preferred apps

When celebrities are photographed doing something mundane, gossip magazines sometimes say that they are “just like us.” Well, in terms of what mobile apps they like, this is certainly true. They enjoy many of the same apps that a lot of other people do.

Rachel Ray says her favorite app is the Boggle-like game Quordy, rapper T-Pain plays the game Amateur Surgeon and Neil Patrick Harris likes the storyboard app called Hitchcock. Alec Baldwin’s affinity for Words with Friends got him into trouble when he refused to stop playing the game on an airplane when asked to turn off his electronic device. Lisa Lampanelli uses the Weight Watchers app to keep track of what she eats, and Marlon Wayons likes the iAnnotate application for reading and editing scripts.

Celebrity-relevant apps are great. Unfortunately, everyone’s economic situation is not so great and many can’t afford the latest and best mobile devices. Have no fear, super-fans. The economical choice, prepaid cell phones and prepaid cell phone plans will make sure that the wisdom of David Hasselhoff or news about the latest power-couple break-up is always at your fingertips.

People follow celebrities for a variety of reasons. Some are simply curious; others share their interests. Sometimes celebrity lives seem larger-than-life and that can be amusing. Even using the same apps that celebrities use makes some fans feel closer to the person whose work they enjoy. Whatever the reason, people love to keep track of their favorite celebs, and mobile apps are one of the best ways to do so.

Are you intimidated by Angelina Jolie?

Forbes was inspired by Angelina Jolie to ask the question of whether men are really intimidated by powerful women. This came up as Billy Bob Thornton explained why his marriage to Angelina failed, “I blew it because I didn’t think I was good enough for her.”

I’m not sure how much you can extrapolate her. Just look at the pics above – Angelina Jolie would intimidate most men. But the message is still important. As a man, without confidence you have nothing when it comes to dealing with women, especially women like Angelina.
