Michelle Obama Picked As Ideal Red Carpet Guest
She beat out Lady Gaga and Snooki as top VIP!
BizBash magazine, the top trade magazine for the event industry, recently polled its readers and asked them, “Which of these celebrities would be your top choice to walk the red carpet at one of your events in 2011?”
Michelle Obama came in hands down as the top celebrity that event planners would love to have as their top guest. Behind the First Lady was former president Bill Clinton, Lady Gaga and Betty White.
BizBash editor in chief Chad Kaydo said, “I suspect our readers choose the first lady because of her personal style, but also because she has an authenticity about the projects that she gets behind. If you saw her at an event, you would feel she genuinely believed in its purpose. And unlike the Jersey Shore cast, she doesn’t go wherever she can pick up a check.”
Oh snap! Poor Jersey Shore! And where did Mama Grizzly, Sarah Palin fall into the list? Right above the cast of The Jersey Shore.
Here’s the list in its entirety:
1. Michelle Obama (25%)
2. Bill Clinton (13%)
3. Lady Gaga (12%)
4. Betty White (9%)
5. Angelina Jolie (8%)
6. Kim Kardashian (6%)
7. Katy Perry and Russell Brand (5%)
8. James Franco (4%)
9. The cast of Gossip Girl (3%)
10. Sarah Palin (2%)
11. (tie) The Jonas Brothers (1%) The cast of Jersey Shore (1%)
