I point you to two examples of celebrities who don't follow the convential wisdom as it were.
Probably my favorite author, Dean Koontz, commited a slight faux pas concerning the Asian community recently:
Not surprisingly, his comments are being criticized by many. But, as one person quoted in the article said:
Maybe criticizing Koontz is viewed as a good way to get over writer's block. H/T goes to Tongue Tied for this one.
Example number two is the surprisingly right wing Bruce Willis. A major actor who's conservative? I know... I was surprised too. Samantha Burns points to this tiny little article in a puny little publication which quotes him:
Of course... any time Madonna says anything negative about Bush or the war in Iraq, it gets front page coverage in the New York Times. Just goes to show you that its not the fact that celebrities are saying something, but what they're saying that's important to the media.
