Occupation: Celebrity reporters, television personalities
Why so famous: Though they come from very different backgrounds (Levin is a well-known entertainment lawyer and Hilton had a series of odd jobs before becoming a blogger) both Levin and Hilton have become icons of celebrity tabloid media. Levin's TMZ has been credited with breaking big news stories like the deaths of Michael Jackson and Whitney Houston. Hilton's blog has made him a celebrity, and he has been open about his sexuality and an outspoken advocate for gay rights. Though Hilton is an influential member of the gay community, he has received some degree of criticism for his efforts to out gay celebrities on his site.
