It's an everyday argument on the socials...

"Man, I wish (random celebrity) would shut up about politics. Who cares what they think!"

"Hey, they're entitled to their opinion just like you and everyone else is!"

"Yeah but...." 

And on, and on, and onnnnnnnnnnn. Seriously. You exhaust me.

But who's actually right? Do people actually care what celebrities think about....anything? Well, a new survey (2,192 adults polled) says that 58% of people are NOT interested in hearing their political and social opinions, while 21% ARE. Another interesting takeaway is that even if the person is a fan of the celeb, they still mostly don't care to hear about who they're voting for or what they thought of the new A Star Is Born.

THIS stat is downright scary. 30% of the people surveyed said they learn about news and current events through celebrities! Let that sink the eff in. Celebs....as a NEWS SOURCE. That's soil-yourself-I-don't-wanna-get-out-of-bed-anymore, scary.

So while some see Miley Cyrus as a credible source of information, 40% said that celebs opinions are "not at all effective" in influencing them. That 40%.....my people.

There's a lot to dissect, and you can see all the fascinating results HERE.

Meanwhile, don't forget to vote! 

For?

I don't think you care what I think.
