If you follow British tabloids, you’ll know that there’s been a bit of a love-in between actor Robert Pattinson and singer/songwriter Katy Perry.

After dating for a couple of months, the pair decided to make their relationship public. At a charity event in London, they were photographed holding hands and gazing into each other’s eyes. In a recent interview, Perry admitted that after many hit songs, she and Pattinson had grown “tired of partying” and wanted to make their relationship “more romantic.” The 27-year-old singer said she wanted to “plant a flag” in the sand and declare their love for each other.

Romantic Icon Or Just Another Pretty Face?

The media spotlight can be a powerful tool for shaping public opinion, especially in the case of pop stars. With so much media coverage surrounding them, it’s easy for celebrities to get lost in the shuffle and be overlooked for amazing feats such as saving a deer from a burning building or climbing a mountain to propose to a woman they adore. We don’t know about you, but we could do without all the paps and journalists following our children around like they’re royalty, even though they have no right to be somewhere near us when we’re trying to have a private moment as a family.

Will They, Won’t They?

Many celebrities who’ve been in the public eye for a while have learned to play the game well, and even learned to enjoy it. Whether its attending parties and events with their entourage or using their celebrity to make money, these stars have gotten good at dealing with the press. Sometimes its hard to tell whose side these people are on, whether its their fans or their families. Its like trying to decide if the person you’re talking to is your friend or your enemy.

Romantic Proposal

It’s well-known that Rob Pattinson has had a difficult time recently, both personally and professionally. While his professional life has been marred by constant media scrutiny and speculation surrounding his personal life, we’re sure many of you are wondering what has happened to the 25-year-old actor lately. Recently, he was photographed holding hands with Katy Perry, the “Princess of Punk,” and the entire world knows what happened next. The two were photographed holding hands and gazing into each other’s eyes during a romantic date night in London.

The proposal didn’t hurt either. Before their romantic date, Perry had already purchased a stunning engagement ring, which she later revealed to her fans via social media. The singer proposed to Pattinson after spotting an ad for the Venice Film Festival that featured the couple’s faces and the words “Will you marry me?” At the time of the engagement, Pattinson wasn’t sure if he would accept the proposal, given the strained nature of his professional and personal relationships with the media. However, the actor quickly realized that he had no chance of a normal life with Katy Perry if he didn’t accept her proposal.

Will They, Won’t They? (Reprise)

There are similar, albeit well-documented, stories surrounding many other celebrities. From Taylor Swift and Joe Jonas to Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale, many high-profile celebrity couples have found themselves in the press after an unusual hobby or sudden career change caught the public’s attention. Having a famous parent or sibling has also been shown to increase the odds of being in the spotlight.

We couldn’t think of a more glamorous headline than “Robert Pattinson Accent: Devil All The Time?” However, the truth is usually far less exciting. As we’ve documented above, most celebrities end up in the spotlight for less glamorous reasons. Sometimes its due to a prank, sometimes its due to sheer bad luck. Regardless, these incidents usually result in public shaming and damage to the individual’s personal life and career. In some cases, famous parents or siblings can make headlines for their involvement in a scandal.
