Jessica在北京学汉语,她的中国朋友要是遇到了不知道用美语怎么说的词,就会来请教她。今天是杨林要问的:八卦。

JESSICA: 杨林,What are you planning on doing Friday night?

YL: 星期五晚上我要和几个特别好的朋友聚会,都是女孩儿!

JESSICA: Wow....A girls' night out! That's awesome!

YL: Girls' night out? 没错! 就是只有女孩参加的姐妹淘聚会! 我们打算在朋友家里吃饭、看片、唱歌,当然,最重要的就是--八卦! 对了,八卦怎么说?

JESSICA: 八卦就是gossip. It means a trivial chat among friends.

YL: 哦,聚会时的闲聊八卦就是 gossip. I enjoy gossiping with my friends. 我喜欢和朋友们瞎聊。 But, Jessica, 八卦这个词也有不好的意思,就是传流言蜚语,gossip 也有这种意思么?

JESSICA: Yes! Gossip can also mean spreading rumors.

YL: 哎! 这倒让我想到另外一个和八卦有关的词---八卦杂志,小报儿,怎么说?

JESSICA: Those are called tabloids. tabloid is spelled t-a-b-l-o-i-d, tabloid. In America, tabloids usually refer to media that follow celebrity scandals.

YL: 哦,tabloid 就是专门报道名人丑闻的八卦媒体。所以我可以说 tabloid magazines, 八卦杂志,也可以说 tabloid web site,八卦网站。

Jessica: 对。

YL: I see. So, what about the reporters who gather information for the tabloids---狗仔队! 怎么说?doggies?

Jessica: (Chuckle) No! 狗仔队是paparazzi, p-a-p-a-r-a-z-z-i, paparazzi. It's in plural form.

YL: 那我可以说. The local paparazzi are following this movie star everywhere.当地的狗仔队四处跟踪这个电影明星。对么?

Jessica: 没错! Now let's see what you've learned today!

YL: 第一,闲聊八卦,或者传流言蜚语,都可以用gossip

第二,八卦媒体是tabloid

第三,狗仔队,是复数名词 paparazzi!

The paparazzi are so laborious,these tabloid magazines are being loved by so many people。But,personally,i don't enjoy gossipping other company mates,so unintresting。
作者:jimmy Run
In fact,you will never know how pitiful the paparazzi are !They need to keep gathering information for tabloids and hiding deeply to prevent to be found by their targets.they can only make a penny-ante salary to put food on the table,working hard to earn their living.so if you watch a tabloid program from TV next time ,you might gossip with someone for it,but remember no insult the paparazzi because they all had done what they have to.
