Despite being a perfect example of what it is to be massively out of touch with everyone else due to wealth combining with ideological isolation, celebrities and artists do serve a purpose. They are, first and foremost, entertainers.
For the most part, we get pretty annoyed with celebrities who put social outreach and political change before their jobs. It’s a bad habit Hollywood has developed over the years, and it’s become so bad that even fellow celebrities have had to shame their colleagues into recognizing their place such as Ricky Gervais did at the Golden Globes.
