Not everyone likes the same things that everyone else likes. And I think that's what makes the world go 'round. So why is it when you mention, something or someone that is very popular in the like department, but you don't likey so much, people give you this horrified GASP?
Awhile back I saw a post on Midwest Grrl mentioning this very exact phenomenon. She listed her dislikes particularly dealing in the area that the common folk usually like. Today at lunch I mentioned to a coworker a particular celebrity that I didn't like and she was mortified. She kept asking me why and then went on and told everyone she could - as if I told her I hated cute little babies or something. You could have swore I had rabies just for the mention.
So I decided to list them out for you - all the celebrities I do not like against popular demand. Here they are listed in order: extreme dislike to least disliked:
1. Keira Knightly. (GASP!!)
I just don't like her. I never did and I don't see myself turning any time soon. I don't think she's pretty. I don't think Pride & Prejudice was the best ever because of her. I just don't like her.
2. Halle Berry. (GASP!!)
I think she is so conceited. Since she won that Oscar - I just get this vibe from her, that she thinks she is God's gift now that she was the 1st Black Actress to win that Lead Actress category. Yes - huge step for the peeps. Not so much Halle - what has she done since that is so great? Catwoman? We'll move on.
3. Jennifer Aniston. (GASP!!)
And this was the mention at lunch today. I don't like her. I don't like her hair. I don't like her all-American girl attitude wearing her jeans and tee shirt allover the place. I just need for her to do something edgy. And I'm not talking the 'Good Girl' or that other movie, what was it's name? The one she did with Clive Owen? I'll admit the only reason I watched, was Clive Owen.
4. Jennifer Garner. (GASP!!)
Ugh. I'll admit the baby is cute. And I think Jen is cute but there is something about her...
5. John Mayer. (GASP!!)
Yep. Don't like the music. Don't like him. He seems to think he is above it all as well - I think he needs to date Jennifer Aniston and when he finished with her, he can move on to Halle Barry.
6. Ben Affleck with Jennifer Garner. (GASP?!?!)
I like him solo, especially when he is on Bill Maher, but coupled with Jen - eh, she is bringing him down. But I loved him coupled with J. Lo.
7. Vanessa Minnilio (GASP!!)
Do I really need to explain this one to anyone?
8. Tobey Maguire. (GASP!!)
What is wrong with him? Is it just me or does he act so disturbed to be a celebrity?
That's it. There you have it. On the flip side of this post I also tend to really like celebrities that everyone else seems to hate (Oh my is there a pattern? Is it just me, going against the societal grain?)
And here is that list, in order, from most loved to least loved:
1. Jennifer Lopez.
2. Angelina Jolie (GASP!!)
I don't care if she cheated with Brad or not. The woman is amazing. She speaks so eloquently about her passions (charities, government, and parenting) that it makes me sit in awe. Fo' real. Hate her all you want, the woman has done some amazing shit.
3. Nicole Ritchie. (GASP!!)
I think she is the F.U.N of Paris and Nicole and The Simple Life.
4. Tom Cruise.
Back off him, too. I still like him. I don't care what religion or God is devoted to, he will always be my homeboy. I just like him, I really do.
5. Lindsay Lohan. (GASP!!)
I think this girl has so much potential, I just wish she'd get there already. We all fuck up in life sometimes. I think she just seems like cool beans - when she's sober and not driving.
So...do you dare share yours? I promise we are an open minded blog and nobody will gasp at your choices of going against the popular vote. Who do you like/dislike that everyone else seems to have an opposite opinion of?
