When famous people such actors, athletes and rock stars give their opinions, many people listen. Then one question may rise, should we pay attention to these opinions? i think it depends on what kind of opinions they give, and most importantly, we should judge by ourselves.
One reason why these people`s opinions can attract wide attention is because they are famous. They are the idols of most people, actually they live under the public`s eyes. So we watch what they do and listen to what they say. When they give opinions on their profession, i think we should pay attention to these ideas. They are famous because they are doing very well in their own career, they are the representitives for certain profession, they have more exprience about what they are doing and the ideas they give may be of great value. For examples, the musicians know what is the best way to perform a piece of music, the athletes know better how to have a strong body. Just like teachers know the best way to teach students.
But under most other circumstances, these famous people are asked to give opinions on various hot topics, including those they are not familiar with. For instance, an artist may be asked to say something about the national defense system, it may be totally new for him. Yes, we hear what they say, but we should make our own conclusions. Because they are just as ordinary as we are on these aspects. We should not follow whatever they say just because they are famous. We should listen to them when they are correct.
One word to conclude what I have said all above, listen to somebody using your own brain, because only u yourself know what is the best for u, what is the right way to do something.
