Politics of 10 Random Celebrities
Celebrities command attention. When they speak, you listen. When they walk, you watch. When they go to the bathroom to do their business, you burst in there to take an awkward selfie. You know – the usual.
One thing we’re always particularly interested in, however, is their beliefs. We want to know what they think of life – so that we can think so too. Kidding! At least, I hope I am. But still, we love to find out if their way of thinking is in line with ours. It gives us common ground. Even though they drive a different Ferrari for every day of the week and park their helicopter on the roof of their New York City penthouse, there is at least one thing that the two of you share. Let’s see if political leaning is that one thing.
