Celebrities’ Political Endorsements? Not Influential

Monday, September 24, 2007
Ore : 12:56 PM

Celebrities are sure able to convince people to drink a certain soda or eat crappy fast food, but when it comes to politics, their word carries little weight.

In other words, if Hillary Clinton wins the White House, it’s probably not going to have much do to with the support given to her by 50 Cent.

According to a telephone survey of more than 1,000 people, conducted by the Pew Research Center for the People and the Press, celebrities’ endorsements for U.S. presidential candidates don’t do a whole lot - in fact, in some cases they would actually cause people not to vote for a candidate.

For example, when asked whether an endorsement from rapper Kanye West would make them more or less likely to vote for a candidate, just 4 percent said it would make them more likely, but 15 percent said they’d be less likely.

Not Influential

Kanye West: Great at rapping and complaining to the media about not winning awards for it; Bad at influencing the public endorsing political candidates.

Other celebrities who had a negative impact on voter choices were Donald Trump, Jay Leno, Toby Keith and - here’s an absolute stunner - Bill O’Reilly.

The endorsement Barack Obama got from Oprah Winfrey was a wash - 15 percent said an endorsement from Oprah helps, while 15 percent said it would hurt.

Looks like Oprah should stick to recommending books! Barack, meanwhile, might want to think of making Amber Lee Ettinger his campaign manager.

Beckhams up for comedy gong

Thursday, September 06, 2007
Ore : 4:17 PM

David and Victoria Beckham's recent antics have landed them a nomination at the Loaded Laftas Comedy Awards.

Thanks to their bid to break the US, the pair are up for Funniest Double Act.

They'll face competition from The Friday Night Project's Alan Carr and Justin Lee Collins and David Mitchell and Robert Webb from Peep Show.

Loaded editor Martin Daubney said: "Perhaps it's Victoria's growing comedy chest or her attempts to integrate into American culture by pitching at baseball matches that have had the British public laughing."

Meanwhile, Russell Brand is up for three of the awards, and will be battling Ricky Gervais for Best Stand Up and Homer Simpson for Funniest Man.

Other categories at the event, which is in it's fifth year, include Funniest Reality TV Person, Funniest TV Programme, Funniest TV Personality, Funniest Radio Show and Funniest Newspaper Columnist.

Daubney added: "It's been a vintage year for comedy and the nominations in this year's Laftas are a testament to that."
