Enough already, Hollywood. We get it. You want to throw whatever weight you have behind Obama. But shouldn’t Will.i.am have quit while he was ahead here? His latest support video just screams “one too many!” and comes off as less about the promotion of the words, ideals, and inspiration of the candidate himself and more about “celebrities” who felt excluded the first time around getting another crack at seeming politically aware. I mean, it’s nice to see Daniel Meade from Ugly Betty and all. Makes me wonder what the return to the set’ll be like when he and America Ferrera inevitably face off over their divergent allegiances. And aren’t Regina King’s arms killer (even though I sooo wanna do something about her hair)? And look! Lots of Spanish being spoken! (Oh, word? George Lopez is an Obama supporter? Good lookin’ out, I guess.)
But I didn’t need to hear Jessica Alba pat herself on the back for having the foresight to look out for her unborn child on the future president tip. She’s getting way too much press for that pregnancy already. And Kerry Washington is cute, but if she didn’t make the deadline for the first song, I would’ve been good with just catching the comments she makes here somewhere else on the campaign trail. And aren’t we all getting a little bit tired of seeing Zoe Kravitz randomly cropping up everywhere now that she’s eighteen? Like, just because.
I guess the point is: shut it, Will.i.am.
