1. Determine A Strategy Beforehand
Chances are that if you’re a celebrity you will have to deal with some kind of media report in your career. Don’t wait until something happens. Plan ahead of time so that when something does happen you will know what to do to prevent negative consequences to your career.
 

2. You Can’t Please Everybody
Celebrities need to understand one fundamental truth.  No matter how popular you may be, there will always be some people who will  like you and there will always be some people who don’t. There is nothing you can do about this regardless how famous and friendly you may be.
 

3. Watch What You Say In Public
Be careful on what you say when you are in public. The media and your fans will be eager to jump on anything that raises any question marks. Play it safe and don’t say anything that will cause problems down the road.


4. Learn From Others
Learn from what other celebrities on how they handled negative celebrity reports. This will help you come up with different strategies on how to protect your career.  It doesn’t hurt to talk to a professional who can give you additional advice.


5. Don’t Get Overconfident
Many celebrities think that they are immune from negative media reports when things are going good. Public opinion can change with a snap of a finger. Don’t get too confident when things are going well in your professional career. Nothing stays the same forever.

6. Develop a Strong Network of Friends
It is important to have a strong support system in your celebrity career. You don’t want to have friends who will bail on you when things don’t go well. Develop friendships with family and friends that are not based on money. Everyone wants to be friends with a celebrity, however a celebrity usually finds themselves alone when there is trouble.
 

Be aware of what you do in the present to help prevent any future problems down the road. Every celebrity has a right to live their own life, however use commonsense and good judgement in what you do.
