The New Segregation

In the old days, celebrities tried to build as big an audience as possible, one fan at a time. Of course, that was back when stars actually bothered to entertain, rather than play the role of politicians with better plastic surgeons.

But today, they prefer their audiences much more segregated.

Back in 2004, Linda Ronstadt admitted to an interviewer:

“It’s a real conflict for me when I go to a concert and find out somebody in the audience is a Republican or fundamental Christian. It can cloud my enjoyment. I’d rather not know.”

Angelina Jolie would prefer that they not watch her at home, either.

Update:Babs Streisand, relinquish that crown as Miss Prima Dona of the Universe”.
