While there are going to be a number musicians and actors, who are generally going to keep their views to themselves, there are others who are going to take a different approach. As a result of this, they are not going to hold back when it comes to what they think about certain topics.
Now, there could be times when what they have to say doesn’t have much of an effect on others. Or if it does, it could be something that people will disagree with but that could be as far as it goes.
If a celebrity was to share their views on a certain type of sports, there can be people who agree and people who don’t agree, but even if they don’t agree, it is unlikely to go any further.
It is not likely to make front page news, and, if what they say does make it into paper, it could end up being overlooked. This is then not going to have an effect on how other people see them.
However, if they were to share their views on politics, this is bound to lead to a different outcome. The amount of exposure their views receive is typically going to be defined by how famous they are.
And if they have said something before an election is about to take place (or after), this could also have an effect. The mainstream media is going to be looking for content to draw people in, and this will be one way to do it.
At the same time, whether the mainstream media covers what has been said can all depend on what has been said. For example, if a celebrity has said something that supports their outlook, they can share it.
Yet if they have said something that doesn’t support their outlook, it can end up being overlooked. What this comes down to is that this news source has their own agenda, and they don’t exist to simply inform people.
Alternatively, this news source could talk about what a celebrity has said even if it goes against their agenda, but they could take what has been said out of its original context. This is then going to be a way for them to tarnish their image.
Making them look bad is going to be one part; the other part will be to try to convince people to vote for the opposite candidate. The celebrity is then going to be nothing more than a pawn.
But although a number of celebrities will share their views and this will be as far as it will go, there are going to be others who go even further. What this could mean is that they will tell people who they should vote for.
Therefore, not only are they going to be a singer and/or actor, for instance, they are also going to be a teacher. And, even if a candidate has been chosen, it doesn’t mean that they won’t have something to say.
Now, if they are happy with who won an election, they might just talk about how pleased they are. When this is not the case, they could end up talking about what needs to be done in order to counteract what has taken place.
It is then going to be as if they have elevated themselves to a position where they are one of the only ones who can do anything about what has taken place. Unlike other people, they are going to be in a position where they know what is going on and what needs to be done.
If one was to listen to what they have to say, it can be easy to believe that they simply care about other people. Based on this, they are just going to be doing what anyone else would do in their position.
This could then show that someone believes this actor and/or musician is superior to other people, and so it is going to be vital for them to listen to what they have to say. There is the chance that what they say sounds extremely convincing.
Yet if an actor has said something, it is not going to be a surprise for them to deliver a good performance. It can then be a challenge for someone to take a step back and to think about what has been said.
On one hand, they can get caught up in their performance, and on the other hand, they can see them in the same way as they saw them in a film. Through doing this, they are not going to be able to see them as a fellow human being; they will see them as a good like figure.
Back To Reality
But although a number of people will see them in this way, there are going to be plenty people who have a different outlook. As far as these people are concerned, this celebrity is only going to be there to entertain them.
And, through telling them what they should do, it can cause them to wonder what is going on. It is then going to be similar to having an electrician over to fix something and they end up telling them who they should vote for, or have a go at them for voting for the wrong person.
If this was to occur, they would probably tell them to get out of their house, and when it comes to a celebrity, this could stop them from watching their films or buying their music. Not only is a celebrity going to be putting themselves above other people, they are not going to be showing any empathy.
If they were to speak to people who don’t live as they do, it would give them the chance to understand why they voted for a certain candidate. This would then allow them to see that not everyone sees the world in the same way as they do, and that this doesn’t mean they are inferior.
Also, if they were to do their own research as opposed to swallowing everything the mainstream media tells them, it will give them the chance to educate themselves about what is actually taking place around them. Naturally, due to the kind of life they lead, it can be a challenge for them to relate to how the average person experiences life.
It could then be said that it might be better for them to keep their views to themselves. This will protect their image, and it will stop them from destroying their livelihood in the process.
