    This includes Hollywood types, talk show hosts, athletes, and people who are famous for being rich and/or famous. Why?

    I have no idea. Probably the people who live furthest away from reality in the country.

    Chappelle nailed it regarding this topic in this stand up piece tho

    I don't

    I don't know why celebrities think their opinions matter...The only opinion that matters to me is the BK guy, cause he knows what he's talking about

    Also, Why when someone asks who is the finest girl in the world everyone names a celebrity? Ive seen lots of women who are finer than any celebrity ive ever seen.

    I wouldn't say I care, but I guess I do. I love music, everything about it. And with music, you tend to think artists are yours...you want them to think like you.

    Yes. There are gorgeous women and handsome men in my small town. I guess the celebrity thing is about sheeple.

    a book is written by someone who has a high degree of relative proficiency in that subject matter.

    an actress like Jennifer Lawrence or an actor like Robert De Niro has the same skill set that I have with respect to politics. Just bc they talk louder doesn’t mean they know more.

    apparently Trump does - he can't seem to let an insult go by without sending one back...

    I’m allergic to pop culture. I have no clue what’s in or who’s big or what they say.

    If I disagree with them politically, They are idiots.
    If I agree with them, They are insightful and intelligent people..

    It's human nature to do what's easiest. Letting others form opinions for us is easier. Just like categorizing each other is easier than trying to understand granular differences.

    Path of least resistance!

    Celebrities are just as full of shit as everyone else. I'm generally indifferent toward most opinions other than my own anyway.

    Because the media props up the celebrities and gives them platforms to spew their nonsense.

    Look at how many 'celebs' went on the stump for Hilary.

    These 'celebs' are all hypocrites that push their views on us but they don't live the reality of the policies they endorse.

    Like...open borders, but the celebrity lives in a gated off house with security.

    Because if you say the girl down the street or in your English class then people probably wouldn't know who you are talking about. Plus the entertainment field tends to select for attractive people.

    I do not spend a lot of time waiting on a person whose job is to play “let’s pretend” - to tell me how to vote. Especially if that person has a 8th grade education.

    Because many people are morons who can't think for themselves and believe anybody with a "stage" to talk from.

    Celebs much like College Prof do not live in the real world so from my perspective its hard to take them serious and even harder for me to look at those who do without laughing.

    But Trump IS a celebrity. He had a TV show for years, so I don’t care what he thinks either.

    Yet somehow Roseanne, Rosie O’Donnell, Patton Oswalt, and Marty Feldman fell through the cracks.
