I feel like celebrities is not the right answer, but it's my honest answer. I feel guilty about it.

I also tend to get really into various current events, most recently the London riots, but obviously the category for those is ever-changing.

As far as health, etc., I enjoy reading articles about sexual health, prescription drugs, and health care/insurance/etc.; I have no interest in weight loss, advice columns, or natural remedies.

You forgot about sports news!

Like coopersnooper said, I also feel a bit guilty of admitting that celebrities/music/fashion/movies is what I'm most interested in news-wise. Second would be anything science related along with psychology and health/disease prevention.

Science, politics, the economy, and alternative energy.
