When ordinary people say something against their President or whatever they call their state leader may be, it’s a mere practice of freedom of speech but when celebrities speak their mind, it’s just rock and roll.
They also come up with the smartest ass comments, so rockin’ hardcore that it resonates through eternity.
Here is the best of them.
10. Noel Gallagher
Oasis was known for representing the working class since all of the members came from the working class. So when Tony Blair invited Noel Gallagher for a reception at 10 Downing Street in 1997 (Note: Blair insisted he doesn’t know how Noel got invited) and Noel came, UK was rocked. However, Blair thought it was a pass for him to claim association with the band in the hopes that Oasis’ coolness will rub off on him.
David Cameron carried on the tradition. He claimed he is a big Oasis fan. Noel let it pass several times but you know Noel, not known for his patience so he said:
David Cameron is no different from Tony Blair, and Gordon Brown is no different from David Cameron. They’re all cut from the cloth and it annoys me that the biggest political icon from the last 30 years has been Margaret Thatcher, someone who tried to destroy the working class… it freaks me out you know. So I don’t really think there’s anything left to vote for. That’s why people don’t vote… why people would rather vote for celebrity talent shows than would vote for politics.
9. Kanye West
Kanye made the remark while being interviewed for a show put together to raise fund for the victims of Hurricane Katrina. His exact quote was:
George Bush doesn’t care about Black people.
Bush later said in an interview with Matt Lauer:
And I didn’t appreciate it then. I don’t appreciate it now. It’s one thing to say, ‘I don’t appreciate the way he’s handled his business.’ It’s another thing to say, ‘This man’s a racist.’ I resent it, it’s not true, and it was one of the most disgusting moments in my Presidency.
8. Ringo Starr
Beatles probably can publish a book of quotes they made against the royal family and state leaders and other personalities. They don’t really care about power and position.
One particularly funny quote was from Ringo when he was asked if he was offered knighthood. He said:
If they make me a prince, I’ll reconsider.
7. Johnny Marr
In what seems to be the best use of the 140-character social networking site to date, Johnny Marr got pissed with David Cameron’s claims to be a fan of The Smiths but is not even able to name a single song of The Smiths. So, this is what he said:
David Cameron, stop saying that you like The Smiths, no you don’t. I forbid you to like it.
6. Natalie Maines of Dixie Chicks
Perhaps the most sincere and most controversial remark of a celebrity against any state leader of any country. Natalie Maines, lead singer of the band Dixie CHicks from Texas, said during a performance in London.
Just so you know, we’re ashamed the president of the United States is from Texas.
The group never apologized for the statement. They also said:
…there is nothing more frightening than the notion of going to war with Iraq.
