Today I Went To My First Press Junket

Unlike most girls, I have never specifically wanted to be famous. Putting my complete lack of talent in, well, everything that makes you a celebrity, aside, I honestly never saw the appeal. What I have always seen the appeal in, however, and I believe I have mentioned this before, is having something to do with those who are famous. Girlfriend, wife, best friend, manager, PR rep…the list of relationships I would be happy to share with an A-lister is endless, but today a new one has added itself to the top of my list, and this one is actually potentially manageable. While not a relationship, per se, it’s still a regular interaction with the rich and famous. 

My dream in life is now to be an Entertainment Editor for a magazine.

Today while on Work Experience, lovely features ed Millie was kind enough to invite me along to the Russell Brand ‘Press Junket’ which was held to promote his new film ‘Arthur’. It opened my eyes to a magical world of perfectness. If seeing Russell Brand in person (and being like two metres away from him) wasn’t brilliant enough, the event was also hosted by Wil Anderson who I have loved forever and I internally freaked out as he stood an arms length away from me. Imagine being paid to go to events like that. 

I know, I know, that’s not what being an Entertainment Editor is about, but I’m also addicted to knowing all the latest goss, am half-way to being able to write awesome film and book reviews, and have read mags long enough to know what makes an interesting interview question. I honestly believe this role has been made for me. I don’t know why I had never thought of it before, or maybe I had and just never realised how epic it would be. Either way, I have now come to my senses about where I want my career to head.

I’m not entirely sure how to take the next step in making this a reality, how do you even train to become an entertainment ed? I’m sure I’ll work it out along the way, but believe me, I refuse to give up until I have business cards announcing me as the entertainment editor of a well known publication.
