Everyone has the right to state his opinion but only the famous people have the privilege to be heard. Of course, it is unpossible to listen to the opinions of six billion people, but why should we listen only to those of the celebrities? The fact that you are good at sports, acting or singing does not make you smarter than the others, does it? I do not think we should listen to the opinion of someone simply because he is famous.

First of all, rock stars, actors, and singers usually do not have very good education or any at all, and they cannot understand the important issues they are talking about. Very often they have no ideas about the right solutions of political problems or specific policy in somewhat complicated area. Albeit, some of them speak about those problems without appropriate background and may bringh about very serious "adverse effects" in the political and economical life of the society.

When celebrities talk about the important issues such as environmental problems, drug abuse, famine, world peace in most cases they simply repeat the same old cliches we have already heard over hundred times. Moreover, they usually promise that they would do anything to resolve these problems, even though they have no such intension. Since they do not believe in their words how can they expect us to believe?

Even when celebrities really help to solve an issue they seldom do it because of purely disinterested motives. How can a star claim that she cares about the poor African children and asks us to be generous and donate them money, when not only she have not donated anything but she is also paid for that campaign?

In conclusion, I think we should pay more attention to those people who really have what to say such as various experts, politicians, professors and etc., and we shold restict celebrities only to their professional areas.
