Sick of royal wedding talk? You aren’t alone! Believe it or not, not every celebrity is clamoring over the royal wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton. In fact, some have become quite cantankerous about the subject.
So many people are sick of the royal wedding that one entrepreneur has gone so far as to make an official “Throne Up” royal wedding sick bag. Grab one for yourself and read on for a list of famous names who are completely over it.
“Why would I watch the wedding? I couldn’t take any of that seriously,” the Smiths singer Morrissey said in an interview with BBC Radio 4. “I don’t think the so-called royal family speak for England now, and I don’t think England needs them.”
“I do seriously believe that they are benefit scroungers, nothing else,” he continued. “I don’t believe they serve any purpose whatsoever. I’m not an anarchist, but I believe that people don’t want the royal family — the so-called royal family. They’re not royal to me, but they’re royal to the media for some reason.”
He may be both British and famous, but Simon Cowell did not make the cut for the royal wedding guest list. In reference to the fact that Kate Middleton’s mailman received the coveted invite, the American Idol and X Factor judge said, “Maybe it got lost in the post.”
Asked whether he felt slighted by the Queen, Simon replied, “It feels a little bit like that, doesn’t it? What have I done wrong?” Yet even if he had been invited it doesn’t sound like Simon’s schedule would have allowed him to attend. “That wasn’t great timing,” he smirked. “It’s a good excuse, isn’t it?”
Daniel Radcliffe will emphatically not be attending the royal wedding. Everyone’s favorite boy with the round glasses doesn’t understand why anyone would assume he’s interested in the royal wedding. The Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 star says, “I won’t be getting up at 4 a.m. to watch the wedding.”
“Why would they invite me?” Daniel Radcliffe asks. “I might be English, but they don’t know me. Why do all Americans think that?”
Comedian Jerry Seinfeld felt no qualms over sharing how he really feels about the royal wedding, which he considers to be a “circus act.” Jerry rants, “You know, it’s a dress-up. It’s a classic English thing of let’s play dress-up. Let’s pretend that these are special people. OK, we’ll all pretend that — that’s what theatre is.”
“And that’s what the royal family is — it’s a huge game of pretend,” he continued. “These aren’t special people — it’s fake outfits, fake phony hats and gowns.”
Songstress Lily Allen couldn’t care less about the royal wedding. Or at least that’s what she wants you to think. The 25-year-old, who was snubbed on the invite list, recently Twitter-ranted, “Well, you can quote me as ‘outraged,’ why does bloody Joss Stone get an invite and not moi? I sang at the Diana concert too!”
Later she let everyone know that she’s too busy to attend, tweeting, “It was pretty obvious that I was being sarcastic about not being invited to the royal wedding, right? Besides I wouldn’t be able to go anyway, I have a previous engagement.”
Uh-huh, sure. That’s why we won’t be going either.
As the royal wedding coverage reaches a fever pitch, remember you aren’t alone in feeling fed up. Spread the love hate!
