Mediabistro's Celebrity and Entertainment Reporting course starting online February 19 teaches aspiring entertainment journalists how to successfully cover the industry today.

As the Entertainment Director for both Life & Style and In Touch magazines, instructor Jordi Lippe has made a career of covering the lives of the rich and famous.  Whether she's reporting on breaking news stories or writing a feature article about the hottest celebrity, Lippe is rubbing elbows with Hollywood's elite.  

The course will delve into how social media has become a news source for many users, which means it's all about breaking the news first with the most up-to-date information. Lippe says, "I don't think the topic matters have changed much over the years, just the rate at which it is delivered." After years of interviewing global celebrity icons, Lippe is still waiting for her chance to interview any member of the Royal family -- the only people she says will make her truly star-struck.

If you're obsessed with all things celebrity and would love to get wrapped up in the glamorous drama of it all, let Jordi Lippe teach you how.
