Did you know that San Francisco is home for many famous people and celebrities in different areas of the entertainment industry such as music, theatre and film, youtube, and comedy? Not only that, Steve Jobs, co-founder of Apple Inc., was born in San Francisco! If that’s not extra awesome for you, well I don’t know what is. But that’s a discussion for another day.
When it comes to celebrities, people have always been very eager to know the latest updates on their favorite “humans”. From what they eat to what they wear or just even what they’re doing on a daily basis. Or we could also throw in a bit more of the juicy stories like their dating lives which had always been the best clickbait topics. The glam culture is not all about the money, power, and influence. It also has its dark side like paparazzi following you everywhere you go with not even a bit of consideration on privacy and people who actually stalk them at their homes.
At The San Francisco Times, “celebrity stalking” is turned into substantial content because SF Times value Real Journalism — which is none of those clickbait articles and articles that invade the privacy of these celebrities. If you want to know more about your faves in features that really talk about them (and not just tea about them), go ahead and visit https://sftimes.com/entertainment/.
But for now, let’s get to know the famous people who crossed the Golden Gate Bridge to take their dreams to the next level.
