Our good bud at Forbes Arik Hesseldahl continues his Best of the Blogs tour with celebrity bloggers:
- You might think that movie stars and pop musicians would jump at the chance to communicate directly with their fans. And indeed, many have tried keeping personal Web logs, or blogs. Unfortunately most of them–teen sensation du jour Avril Lavigne leaps to mind–don’t stick with it long enough to make their blogs compelling reading.
But a few do it very well. The five bloggers we’ve selected here are gleaned from an already short list of famous people who post their personal writings on the Web. They are not all A-list celebs–mainly because we removed from consideration blogs that haven’t been updated during the last month. And be warned: These blogs contain a fair amount of limousine-liberal posturing, especially on the war in Iraq. But celebrity bloggers still offer up enough tidbits to entertain fan and non-fan alike.
His top five are the dreaded Wil Wheaton, Moby, William Gibson, Barbra Streisand, and Dave Barry. Another nice job.
