STAY OUT OF POLITICS!
Like many Americans, I am tired of the actors, musicians, and athletes jumping into the political fray with their self righteous, condescending, ‘we live in a bubble’ rhetoric.
Let’s take the Emmy’s for example. Hollywood actors, directors and producers surrounded by people who agree with them (or people who are too afraid to admit they don’t,) get together in a room and bitch and moan and think that we want to listen to it. We don’t (check the ratings.)
Imagine if, with all of their resources, energy and potential reach, they decided to dedicate every speech to promoting a cause that effects the lives of millions of people in the world – something more important than politics… how about; finding a cure for cancer, heart disease, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, poverty, famine, malnutrition, etc., etc., etc.
Yes, there are celebrities doing some great charity work, but there should be more.
Today’s celebs would do themselves (and the rest of the world) some good to study 1985 and LIVE AID and the great things that have happened since. They used their talent to entertain people AND help the world and in the process, created lots of good will for themselves and fans rewarded them with ticket/album sales. WIN-WIN-WIN. What a concept!
