Let’s talk about celebrities and politics. And Leo.
So since my last blog, I’ve had a couple of cocktails and watched a performance at the hotel called ‘The Evolution of Dance’, which, okay, did Show Me How You Burlesque, and Bad Romance, as well as snippets from the following dances in no particular order: The Macarena, Ice Ice Baby, Baby Got Back, Lose Yourself, which, yes, is just him pretending to throw his hand up like Eminem, Single Ladies, Hounddog, Grease Lightning, Thriller, Cotton Eyed Joe, Jump Around, and a whole lot of other songs that basically didn’t actually have dances. Was it entertaining? Yes. Were they talented? Well, let’s just say they should be glad they’re not on Dance Moms or Abby would be ripping them apart backstage right now. But the point is, WHERE IS BRITNEY? Where is I’m a Slave 4 U? Where is Me Against the Music? Where is Oops! … I Did It Again? Where is … Baby, One More Time? OMG, like I seriously can’t even with you right now, Cabo. It’s like, are you still mad about this:
Because it was like 10 years ago and she made it all right last year!
… Okay, I’m kidding, obviously. Point is, it’s a serious oversight on their part to not include this:
Like, really. That shit is ICONIC. But perhaps it’s time to get to the actual post.
My boy DiCaprio has a new(ish) mission, and it’s aimed at getting young people, and, I suppose, all other people, to ‘vote for stuff’. It’s a new campaign being led by Leo and his best buddy since forever/co-star in The Great Gatsby, Tobey Maguire. The ad also enlists a whole bunch of other celebrities, like Zac Efron (who Leo was at the basketball with one time), Selena Gomez (who has a crush on Leo), Joseph Gordon-Levitt (Inception), Ellen DeGeneres, Benicio Del Toro (who knocked up Kimberly Stewart that one time and that doesn’t have anything to do with this except that’s all I think about with him now.), Amanda Seyfried and Jonah Hill.
This is one of the most important elections of our lifetime. We are using the power of social media throughout the Vote 4 Stuff campaign to incite bi-partisan conversation around real issues, encourage registration and voting in November.
Here’s the campaign ad:
If you’re interested in seeing what celebrities are democrats and republicans, you can click over here, although I’m not sure how accurate it is because I’m fairly sure I read recently that Natalie Portman was a republican.
Meanwhile, the first presidential debate was on the other day, and here’s what the celebrities are saying about it:
