I do not, I repeat, do not care what side of the fence you sit on, left, right, or on the fence. I don’t care! I have my own political views but in no way am I interested in yours.
Here’s an interesting thought instead of all these millionaire entertainers getting on television and telling us to give to X foundation/cause/organization what would happen if they each took one of their million dollar payouts they receive and dumped it into whatever?
“Hey Darfur listen, I have enough to buy you a private army to fix everything but I think I’ll just rally the American public to your cause. Hope it all works out I’ll be on a nice safe beach somewhere in the Pacific.”
Do we really need our celebrities to tell us what’s going on in the world politically? I look to celebrities to entertain me I have a multitude of outlets to educate and inform me. It really shows the over sized ego of someone when they use their power and popularity over their fans for their own selfish agenda. Let me just say if it was a politician turned actor, singer, writer I wouldn’t have issue, well maybe I would because they’d probably be a little nuts. It’s when these people who we applaud for entertaining us suddenly think they know what’s best for us that I find myself a little north of irritated.
I don’t know about you all but I don’t buy movie tickets or download music from iTunes because I support the political agenda of the artist or artists.
I pose to you what happens when an artsy type becomes too powerful.
