Entertainment provides a form of recreation and distraction from the stresses of daily life. It can range from the simple (clowns at birthday parties, playgrounds) to the complex (museum exhibits, orchestra concerts, Broadway plays). Different people value different types of entertainment; for example, children might enjoy cartoons and playgrounds while adults might prefer more sophisticated art and cultural activities. Entertainment can also stimulate the intellect: a riveting mystery, a puzzle, a strategy game or even thinking about abstract issues can keep the mind sharp and agile.
When writing an entertainment article, be sure to avoid libel by not making accusations or implications that could be interpreted as defamation of character. Be especially careful when discussing a celebrity, and research their biography for background information. It is also a good idea to watch interviews of your subject and see how they interact with other celebrities as this will give you an idea of their personality. This can help you determine a tone for the article. Lastly, make an outline of the article before you begin writing so that it seems less daunting.
