Being a celebrity comes with a lot of oh, so obvious benefits.
fame. fate. fan worship.
It also means that everything you say multiplies a hundredfold. Maybe more if your last name is Pitt or Kardashian. A more recent run of fame is not so welcome. You are often expected to follow the line of a certain political party.
Just ask Taylor Swift. The superstar singer remained apolitical for most of her career, refusing to share her ideological positions. The press denigrated him month after month, even hinting that he had a It has a white supremacist streak. After all he didn’t endorse Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump.
he finally Democrats embraced After Clinton lost on election day, a move journalists demanded at all without actually saying it.
The media, now satiated, celebrated her transformation by praising the film that captured her partisan transition. “Miss Americana.”
Kevin Hart likewise avoids sending political messages. She was not maligned in the media like Swift, but it exposed her when old, ugly jokes about gay people were “resurrected” after her. Oscars hosting gig stuck.
As a result he lost the said gig within a few days.
Is it Gwen Stefani’s turn?
The No Doubt alum originally argued for a solo career, using his loose style to set him apart from the pack. In doing so he was accused of “cultural appropriation”, an allegation she shamelessly denies.
“If we didn’t buy and sell and trade our cultures, we wouldn’t have that much beauty, you know?” she says. “We learn from each other, we share from each other, we grow from each other. And all these rules are dividing us all the more.”
He single-handedly influences social justice warriors, the grassroots soldiers of the Cancel Culture movement. However, what Stephanie just did is worse by her standards.
The singer told Paper magazine that she Not ready to share his political views with the public. However, she went beyond that.
“The whole point of voting,” she said, “is that you have this personal space to express how you feel. I use my platform to share my life story and connect with people and whatever gifts they have.” To exchange what I was giving. I’m not a political science major. I’m not that person. Everyone knows that. So why should I even talk about it?”
The singer also indirectly mocked the virtue sign, which was a core tenet of the awakened crowd. It came as she broke her opening smash, “Just a Girl,” into a far less than feminist manifesto.
“I don’t need to go on Instagram and say ‘girl power.’ I just need to live and be a good person and leave a mark of greatness behind me. Stop talking about it and trying to bully everyone about it Stop doing it. Just do it.”
Stephanie’s trivia answers may be refreshing, but they also have a big, juicy target on her back. Cancel Culture’s scolding may double their efforts against him, and take all his celebrity cash, and courage, to survive the next wave.
