Forbes Most Influentual Celebrities of 2014 List is a Mess

So before I get into how much of a mess this list is I will list the top ten for you all to gasp and shake your head at.

1) Steven Spielberg.

2) Oprah Winfrey

3) George Lucas

4) Ron Howard

5) Martin Scorsese

6) Dr, Oz

7) Barbara Walters

8) Bono

9) Stan Lee

10) Rush Limbaugh

So you see the trend in this list of most influential celebrities of 2014 even though we are just about a month into the year? It is all older white men. Who runs Forbes? Probably older white men. It is just a mess! These people are not the most influential celebrities and I am 200% sure of it. I highly doubt that someone would bring up Stan Lee off the top of their heads when it comes to who is influential.

I mean all these people are great directors or raise a lot of money for charity, or are TV hosts, other than Rush Limbaugh he is just an asshole. That one just really throws me for a loop.

Here is what the list should have been when it comes to celebrities.

1) Jennifer Lawrence

2) Justin Timberlake

3) Meryl Streep

4) Jay-Z

5) Beyonce

6) Taylor Swift

7) Oprah Winfrey

8) Ellen DeGeneres

9) Idris Elba

10) Chelsea Handler.

Those are the most influential people in the business, if you don’t like it too bad!

Duck Dynasty Drama

Now, I have never seen this show but I know what it is about, hell most people know what it is about. This family got rich by making duck calls and then got famous for having a reality TV show on A&E, really that simple. Apparently people love watching these rich hillbilly’s do family things. They are a close family and their motto is “faith, family. and ducks” at least that was what they said on that Barbara Walters special last night.

Anyway the family has been in some hot water because one of the hillbillies said that he hated gays and that they will all be in hell. He then went on to compare homosexual relationships to bestiality. He also said that he didn’t understand why someone would want an anus over a vagina, and so on and so forth. Now, I am not sure which one of these guys it was in the picture above but I think it is the scary looking mother fucking all the way to the left. So because of these remarks A&E suspended him from the program and now the whole cast refuses to film. I mean there are a few ways to look at this. If people want to make homophobic remarks it is apart of the whole freedom of speech thing, people are allowed to speak their smile in this country. There is also the whole insensitivity thing which can really fuck with people.

I think that A&E should really look at the issue here, look long and hard. This is their most popular show in a long time, people love this family. Now the whole family basically refuses to film for you, it is going to become a problem for you eventually. I think that this is just a really sticky situation. Obviously a guy who lives by the bible according to him though is going to think these thoughts.

If A&E was smart they would just have them bring up the issue on the show and then the show would get their highest ratings ever. That is my thought on the whole thing.

Jennifer Lawrence: “Pizza fixes everything!”

If you follow my blog closely it isn’t hard to tell that Jennifer Lawrence is one of my favorite people ever and her interview with Barbara Walters last night just goes to prove how amazing she is. She is only 23 years old and is fucking hilarious, she doesn’t take the fame thing too seriously. Hell she said in 10 years she wants to be out of the spotlight and starting her family. At this point in her life I don’t think that fame has changed her, if it has she is a better actress than I thought so in the first place.

During this interview her quote about pizza was easily one of the best things that she said but she also said something else about using the word fat. It was something like this and I won’t quote it because I could be totally off. She said that if we monitor violence and cuss words, why not monitor the word fat? She genuinely hates that people make fun of others for being fat and I completely agree.

Most young girls should start looking up to Jennifer Lawrence, she knows what she is talking about. I love me some T.Swift don’t get me wrong but J.Law is a way better influence on young girls. I am only a year younger than her and she is my idol!

If you do get a chance though you should look up her interview, it is really great.

Hillary Clinton is Barbara Walters’ most fascinating person of 2013.

You know, I really didn’t see this coming, I really didn’t. I completely forgot that they always keep the first person a secret so hell, I thought that I knew all of the people! Surprise, I was wrong! Barbara is all about having Hillary run for President and I think that would be pretty cool. I think that it is time for a woman President just to make sure that everything happened. She is saying that her hardest times were her personal times, losing her parents. She didn’t talk about the whole Bill Clinton getting head in the Oval Office which kind of sucked right? I mean that must have been absolutely terrible for her, she needs to really open up about that shit!

I don’t pay too much attention to politics, I think that our country is fucked no matter what. Anyway, I like the way that Hillary holds herself, she is very professional and I love that. Hillary is a strong woman and it is important to have strong women in the media.

Barbara Walters 10 fascinating people review.

So every year Barbara Walkers puts together a list of people she finds interesting. Being 102 you would think she found everyone interesting because they can do things that she can’t. They can go on carnival rides, and walk around for hours. They don’t all get the senior discount at Denny’s though! She is one up on them in that respect. Anyway this is her list from 2013 and I will give my take on each of them. Exciting stuff, I know.

• ABC anchor Robin Roberts- You know I think that this is actually a really good pick. I don’t watch Good Morning America, I think it is too chaotic for me to even enjoy at 6 in the morning but I like Robin Roberts. She handled her fight with cancer with dignity and never said “poor me” she always put a smile on her face. Seeing how she stepped up really is incredible and I give her credit for putting on a brave face.

• Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence- Is there anything negative that could be said about this little golden retriever of an actress? Jennifer Lawrence is fucking golden and she deserves every award ever. Give her the Nobel Peace Prize too! If Obama can get it for no reason then Jennifer Lawrence should get it as well! She is either 23 or 24, and has been nominated for two Oscars, winning one of them. She can laugh at herself in interviews. I give this girl a lot of credit and can’t wait to see what she has in store for us for the future. She is like the next Meryl Streep or some shit.

• The stars of Duck Dynasty- I have never watched this show and I probably never will. People love these assholes for being rednecks and shit like that. I am all set with this show, it is just a more grown up version of Buckwild right? They also have money which Buckwild kids did not have. Yeah, I am all set with them. Take them off of the list, please and thank you.

• Singer Miley Cyrus- Yes, yes ,yes. People think that Miley Cyrus is just the next trainwreck but she is fucking brilliant, she knows exactly what she is doing. She knows that the more wild she acts that means she gets attention. If she was just normal she would hardly be in the papers at all. Apparently she talks about her broken engagement with Liam which I can’t wait to see. I hope she really digs into it, if she doesn’t that is okay though. She is just being Miley.

• Pope Francis- The new Pope is really cool, I like that man. He can stay.

• Prince George- I don’t understand how this little royal even counts. Is Barbara going to sit there with a newborn and just ask him questions while he shits and cries? That just doesn’t sound like riveting news in my opinion. If she has an interview with Will and Kate though that will be perfect, they are the perfect couple. Prince George should be voted off of the list though.

• Long-distance swimmer Diana Nyad- This bitch! I cannot stand Diana Nyad because she cheated, she cheated swimming from Florida to Cuba which Cubans do every day. I don’t think that she deserved this at all. In case you didn’t know she has tried this a million and a half times and finally got it but only because people were swimming ahead of her pushing jelly fish out of her way. I guess that if you wanted to swim that distance just fucking swim in a pool back and forth for hours. I understand she had to deal with salt water and shit and I commend her for that but still, don’t cheat. Plain and simple.

• Kimye (Kim Kardashian and Kanye West)- No, this is stupid. I feel like every year Barbara needs to do something with the Kardashian’s, this is overboard though. Kimye is not a person, iti s a science experiment.

• NSA leaker Edward Snowden- I don’t know who he is because I only focus on celebrity culture but sure, he can stay.
