Celebrity Causes

Personally, I never think it's a bad thing when a celebrity goes public to help someone.  "Publicity stunt" is a phrase some critics use when that happens, but as long as someone in need actually benefits, who cares?  As you hear in Wednesday's report, "Clooney has Darfur, Angelina has refugees, Bono has Africa" and Shakira has Colombia.  Fine with me:  They're using their talents for good causes.

What I'd like to know is if it matters to anyone.  Think about the famous people you look up to - are you more likely to support a cause if they do?  Would you want to find out more about it, or do you not care as long as they keep making hits?
