Entertainment news caters to people's desires for leisure and gossip. Recently, with the Internet popularization, the online social network has become a convenient platform for netizens to receive and spread entertainment news. Previous study efforts of entertainment news focused on analyzing the psychological background and the economic significance of entertainment news. However, little attention was paid to realistic propagation structure features of entertainment news, which reflect the essential propagation mechanisms. This research analyzes different types of news in the online social network, and entertainment news and other news are compared with respect to different structural features. It is found that entertainment news propagates with more indirect re-postings and a polycentric structure. These unique characteristics are stable for different stages of propagation. This structural feature offers us a better understanding of entertainment propagation and may inspire the further analysis of entertainment news based on the propagation trace.
