Three Things Thursday - My Least Favorite Celebs

 
I'm linking up with Myranda for three things Thursday.  This week we are talking about our 3 LEAST favorite celebrities.
 
I will preface this by saying most of my opinions of these people are ridiculous and irrational.
 
This is going to be unpopular probably, but I can not stand Taylor Swift.  At first it was just her music.  It was all fairytales and crushing on boys who don't notice you.  I probably would have ate that stuff up when I was 16, but when I first heard of her I thought her music was lame and couldn't understand why everyone liked her so much.  Then after seeing her on awards shows and just sorta how she acts drove me nuts.  Like I'm just twee/awkward/sweet Taylor, and I wasn't buying it.  But now she and her music are in your dang face 24/7.  Though I will say her music has improved with age, albeit only slightly.  What pushed me over the edge with her is when she couldn't laugh at herself/take a joke about the fact that she cycles through boyfriends at a very rapid pace (then writes songs about them that we are forced to listen to...) and tried to call out Tina Fey and Amy Poehler for poking fun at her at the Golden Globes.  Girl, please.  Go fly a kite, Taylor!   


Katy Perry is another one that I don't care for.  I don't care for how she was a gospel musician first.  Like she would bother me so much less had she never had that chapter in her life.  But the fact that she did makes it seem to me that she was this nice wholesome gal who gave the middle finger to her values in order to shake her ta-tas everywhere and be famous.  That being said, she is such a big fan of Jesus, yet she is usually half naked and singing about kissing girls and menage a trois-es.  (Kissing girls, not in an 'its okay to be gay' way, but an 'I'm arousing my boyfriend, tee hee' way **biggest eyeroll ever**)  So she is either a huge sell-out or a liar.  Then there was the whole deal with her criticizing Lady Gaga's Alejandro video and its 'blasphemous' imagery.  She said something to the effect of 'I'm a fan of Gaga, but I'm a bigger fan of Jesus.'  Well you know, I respect Lady Gaga as an artist and it is clear to me (and most people with a brain who care to critique her work) is that she is provocative in an artful way.  I am a Christian and I wasn't insulted by her video.  I understood the point of what she was trying to get across.  You know, art.  And the fact that Katy Perry is herself an 'artist' and doesn't get that makes me think she is pretty dumb.  Plus she is often confused with my hero Zooey Deschanel, and I find it personally insulting, lol.  At BEST she is Zooey's trashy cousin.    
 
 
I don't even know where to start with this one.  He's not very smart.  He's classless.  Pretty sure he is racist.  He embarrasses himself endlessly by involving himself in politics.  He publicly extorts people and tries to call it charity.  He sucks at business.  (there is a joke that I can't remember involving DT and making a million dollars, he needs a new business and a billion dollars...something like that) He is basically a giant clown, and I can't stand him.  I wish his show would get cancelled, I wish his ventures that he so egomaniacally(is that a word?)  names would go bankrupt, and I wish people would quit giving him the time of day.  He's lucky his hair is so terrible, otherwise he'd have been forgotten eons ago.
 
 
Who are your three least favorite celebrities??

Oh yea..Donald..and the hair! He is so annoying! He opened a vineyard/bought a vineyard here. I refuse to even go to it because his name is plastered all over it.

Donald Trump always looks like he's just opened a really hot oven.

Mommy Mandy said...

I do like Taylor Swift, but I totally agree with you on Katy and Donald!

Jennifer said...

Even though I end up singing Taylor's songs along with the radio, she is totally annoying and I am calling it that she is probably a bitchy slut. LOL Just saying.

I had no clue Katy said that about GAGA video. How dare she!!! Who whore a bra that shot out whipped cream? Hmm let me think!?

I actually think Donald Trump is incredibly smart and I like him. He is very successful and is obviously doing something right.

Taylor Swift irks me to no end. I'm fine with listening to her music occasionally. Whatever. And I used to love her when she first came out! Then her little innocent "who me" oh my gosh persona got super, super annoying. And she started winning all these country awards when she isn't even really country. Now I can't even look at her.

First things first - I think people, including my wife, have an irrational hatred of Taylor Swift for some reason I don't quite get.

Also, I am pretty sure my wife hates Katy Perry because she knows that I think Katy Perry is hot.

But as for the real reason for my post. I don't think it is fair to compare Taylor Swift and Katy Perry to the likes of Donald Trump. He is awfulness personified. He may be the worst person ever who wasn't responsible for a genocide.

Anyone who thinks Donald Trump is actually intelligent is ignoring three crucial facts: (1) the Donald inherited a real estate fortune from his father, Fred Trump, so he didn't have to make it on his own with a brilliant idea or product; (2) the industry in which he has been primarily engaged, real estate development, was for most of the past 35 years or so been about the easiest way for anyone with some money to make a ton more, no genius required; (3) Trump's casino business has had to declare bankruptcy on several occasions, how anyone loses money running a casino - a business where people swarm in, empty their pockets, and scuttle off - I will never understand. I know, however, the reason his casinos had to declare bankruptcy was because of a high debt load, but it seems to me that if Donald Trump were actually good at business, he would know better.

I'm not one to pedal my own posts on another blogger's post but I think if you read this short post, you'll find that we are kindred spirits.

And I can't even lie. I like Trump and his pretty kids.

I agree with Taylor Swift. I used to not mind her. When she first came out, I liked her music. Now, she gets on my nerves. I agree with your reasoning. I also don't care for Kristen Stewart.
