From Natalie Portman And Scarlett Johansson To Clint Eastwood And His Chair: See Which Celebs Have Been Turning Up At The National Conventions

Celebrities at the national conventions

Election fever is starting to go full tilt as we cruise into fall, and celebs of all stripes have put in appearances at the national political conventions to show their support for their favorite presidential candidate! Democrats seemed to have the hotties in their corner, with appearances from Scarlett Johansson, Natalie Portman, Kerry Washington and Eva Longoria. Yeah, we all know about how most of Hollywood are Democrats (insert evil liberal media bias conspiracy argument here). But what can we say, the pictures speak for themselves! We also have some rap and R&B artists like Common, will.i.am and Mary J. Blige bringing the noise and the funk for Barack Obama. Even U.S. Gynmastic sweetheart Gabby Douglas got in on the red, white and blue fun!

Say what you will about their politics, but the Republican National Convention definitely rocked the hardest of the two. Mitt Romney and the gang had a hand from freakin’ Journey! But that’s not all. Axe-men from 3 Doors Down, Lynyrd Skynyrd shredded their strings for the GOP, and Kid Rock, Trace Adkins and Taylor Hicks also showed up to belt a few tunes. Plus, who could forget Clint Eastwood and his incredible empty chair? Head to the gallery below to check out all the famous folks who have made their voices heard at the national political conferences!

Taylor And Selena Sing A Duet For The 13-Year-Old Inside All Of Us

Excuse us for assuming that a Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez duet might be a little too “pink bejeweled cupcakes frosted with teeny tiny hearts and bunny kisses” for our taste. As the two littlest divas proved last night at Madison Square Garden with their duet version of Gomez’s song “Who Says?,” however, Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez together are sweet without being saccharine, as well as utterly charming. Watching them belt it out at the last stop on Swift’s “Speak Now” concert tour reminds us of singing TLC’s “Waterfalls” in our best friend’s back yard. Except Taylor and Selena are performing for thousands of shrieking fans, and we were singing into an old hair brush. Either way, somebody‘s mom is getting misty-eyed at this. Oh yeah, and us.
