OPINION: I’m getting to the stage where if I lived in the United States, I think I might vote for rapper Kanye West for president, but the words ‘frying pan’ and ‘fire’ spring to mind.
While I’m not serious about voting for him, his pitch for president makes it seem increasingly likely that celebrities will slowly but surely come to rule the world.
In the last US election Oprah Winfrey was touted as a possible contender. She’d bring a level of intelligence and professionalism to the role that I could live with, given the alternative.
I remember friends poo-pooing me when I said celebrities would soon take over politics after President Donald Trump was voted into office. They said it would never happen, but it will.
