The point most celebrities want to put across is easily understood by the public in general.I can't say this is the general rule but it is by and large correct.The work of scientists on the other hand requires a thorough study and is more complex.It requires both intelligence and effort to properly understand their theories.People , i mean the average or below average persons in general find the views propounded by celebrities easy to comprehend.Even a person of great genius like Sir Isaac Newton was not properly understood by the people at large during his time.People in general are more attracted to celebrities as they appeal to the masses.
