Subject: Late 2006 is when TMZ mania started

Written By: the2001 on 02/03/17 at 2:54 pm

One of the first 2 really big scandals I can remember being  " TMZ worthy"
were Mel Gibson's outbursts in 2006 and Kevin and Brittney's split in Nov of 2006.


Anybody else agree this is when tabloids became the 1# thing in culture?

Late 2006 is when everything modern or sh*tty can be traced back to.

LOL, yes. By 2006, social media was huge.

On a twisted note, Britney Spears' breakdown provided Perez Hilton, TMZ, and other news sites, something to talk about. I guess in a way, Britney was just doing what a superstar does! Get lots of press! Unfortunately she lost her trust and innocence during those years. She paid a high price for getting so much attention!  :P

I also forgot, around 2003 to 2007 was the era of the bad girl. Lindsay Lohan, Britney, Paris Hilton, Nicole Ritche, etc, etc.
It was this unfortunate era that led us to Kim Kardashian today.

I don't know about TMZ's history, but all I know is that it started in late 2005.

I was more of an E! Weekly person from 2004-2008  :-[ :-[ Not that I liked it, but TV was still my main form of entertainment back then instead of the Internet, and that's all that was on ;D
