The celebrity lifestyle is something that many of us are fascinated by. Whether it's their home life, net worth, or scandalous drama that they are involved in, many of us have an interest in celebrity news and lifestyles. I particularly enjoy writing about celebrities that have a connection to Massachusetts. Whether they were born here, live here have relatives here, or spend part of their time here, I like to brag about their Massachusetts connection, and why not? There's plenty of beauty and things to do in the Bay State. Whether it's the hustle and bustle of bigger cities like Boston, Worcester, and Springfield or the smaller but exciting and active happenings of towns/cities like Great Barrington, Williamstown, Northampton, and Pittsfield, etc, Massachusetts has something for everyone (as a matter of fact, check out a list of celebrities that were born in Massachusetts by going here.)
