As a matter of fact, when famous people such as actors, athletes and rock stars give their opinions, many people listen to, especially young people. It's easy to understand this because they are loved by many people, many of them are idols of young people and their opinions as well as stories about them are always hot news in the media. With this influence on the public, I believe that it is necessary to pay attention to their opinions and there are many reasons we should do this.

First, these famous people are the best ones in their areas such as cinema, sport or music. And these are also the areas of interests of many people. People consider them as experts, even as idols. Their opinions, especially the one concerning their areas, are usually highly appreciated and considered as some guidelines for the others who are intereted in their areas. People listen to them and try to follow their path, hopping to have such a successful carear in the future.

Second, even if their areas are not of your interests or their opinions are even not related at all to their areas, I think their opinions are still worth to listen to, at least by curiosity. Moreover, what you know about them will surely help you a lot in talking with people around you. It would be easier for you to share people's interests with this kind of knowledge. To illustrate, suppose you meet a Pele's fan and you tell him that Pele's recent opinion about the reform in soccer is really great. Then you can talk with him friendly and of course, he likes you very much.

And finally, as a parent or a teacher or a politician who cares about young people and the others, you cannot neglect the influence of these famous people over the public. A rock star lifestyle can affects strongly your children's life, even much more then you can affect them. For your children, their opinions may be more important than your opinions. If you don't pay attention to this kind of influence, you cannot teach or lead or influence your children, your students or your public. It's quite often that the politicians need these famous people to address to the public or to prevent them from giving "bad" opinions that may not be good for their puclic.

For all the above-mentioned reasons, I'm convinced that we should pay attention to the famous people's opinions and consider them as one kind of important information we should know.
