9 Celebrities Who Give A S*** About What People Say, Like Seriously

You only live once, and it’s possible that Drake popularized the word “YOLO” to represent this sentiment. thus, we shouldn’t worry about what our critics say, but many other famous people don’t give a damn. In a world where everything gets a filtered Instagram makeover, it’s nice to know that lots of famous people don’t care much about what other people think about how they live their lives.

Of course, it’s beneficial and reasonable to have at least some awareness of how other people are thinking in general, but if you’re feeling depressed, it couldn’t hurt to try to channel these celebrities.

No one better embodies the concept of “no f*cks given” than Rihanna. It’s her favorite thing to do to always get her way. She knows that she is one of the most renowned women in the world and that the public is always interested in hearing about her personal life and professional endeavors. It was alleged in 2015 that Rihanna said, “Do I really give a d*ck about that anymore?” when questioned by V Magazine whether she cared about keeping her personal life private.

“I don’t pay attention to the negative because how many times have we seen this play out in pop music? Madonna’s done it, Britney has done it, anyone, that’s performed on the VMAs, you know? You’re always going to make people talk. You might as well make them talk for like two weeks rather than two seconds. I’ve been laughing about all the news because everyone else is so serious.”

3. Gwyneth Paltrow

The actor-turned-lifestyle-guru has taken the many criticisms she has gotten over the years about her extravagant lifestyle in stride. As published by Elle UK in 2009 said, “I can’t help but be me. I can’t act like I have a $ 25,000-year salary when I don’t.”

As far back as 2009, Gaga told Fuse, “I don’t care what others think about me, I care what they think about themselves.” Gaga has made it her mission to spread a message of self-assurance to her admirers. Motivating, if a tad bewildering, don’t you think? The way she is now is how she was always meant to be.

5. Demi Lovato

The journey to self-acceptance was not easy for Lovato, who battled mental illness and an eating issue before discovering peace inside herself. In 2011, she told Seventeen magazine, “I don’t let anyone’s insecurities, emotions, or opinions bother me,” signaling her intention to serve as an example to her admirers and contemporaries. To be honest, I have come to realize that my own happiness is the only thing that truly matters. And when it comes to your health, it’s fine to be that self-centered at times. Ultimately, you should follow your heart and stop caring what other people say.

I say what I want to say and do what I want to do. There’s no in-between. People will either love you for it or hate you for it. That’s what I’ve found just on a street level — fans, and people on the street. They either can’t stand me or love me for telling the truth and saying what’s on my mind.”

7. Kelly Clarkson

Clarkson was blissfully oblivious to online hate after a journalist attacked her weight in 2015. Clarkson said of Heat’s tweets, “I’m clueless. Me? On Twitter?” Kelly said after describing the tweets, She tweeted about me? I’m unknown to her. Amazing! I’m unfazed. Freedom reigns. Whatevs. Never bothered what others thought. My thing is being joyful, confident, and feeling wonderful. I don’t seek other acceptance since starting a family.”

8. Nicki Minaj

This year, I decided that I’m going to live my life. Because I love making music, I need to live my life and realize that people will talk about me no matter what. They don’t know who I am. And it’s kind of sad because I’ve done so much for so many people, but I haven’t taken a moment for Onika [her real name]. But this year, I’m taking a moment before the tour. I’m going out and having fun because none of this is guaranteed. I’m not living my life for social media and people who don’t know anything about me anymore — for them to give me a stamp of approval. It doesn’t matter to me anymore.”

9. Madonna

When it comes to her identity as an artist and her approach to life, the “Unapologetic B*tch” makes no apologies. “caring about what people say is the death of all artists,” she told the L.A. Times in 2015. Since the publication of her first album in 1983, she has been a trailblazer for women in the music industry, and the fact that she hasn’t mellowed out in the decades since shows that she is committed to not merely breaking limits but smashing them.
