Entertainment journalism is any form of journalism that focuses on the entertainment business and its products. Like fashion journalism, entertainment journalism covers industry-specific news while targeting general audiences beyond those working in the industry itself. Common forms include television and film criticism, music journalism, video game journalism, and celebrity coverage.[1][2][3][4] The rise of the Internet allowed many amateur and semi-professional journalists to start their own blogs relating to Entertainment Journalism.[5]
