Whether you like the Beatles or not, you can't deny their influence. Well, you could, but no one would take you seriously. Their influence is still felt today, and despite the best efforts of Oasis, the musical alchemy of the Beatles hasn't been recreated. But now there are rumors swirling around that a genetic replacement for the Fab- 4 may be in the works. In a recent interview with the BBC, James McCartney, son of Paul, said he'd like to get a band together with other Beatles offspring. That's right, the sons of Paul, John, George and Ringo are all musicians in their own right and, apparently, are open to the idea. Personally, I think it's a terrible idea, but it's an idea, nevertheless. Some people actually WANT to follow in their parents footsteps. We know celebrity kids are all about it, but even some of us normal folks want to do what daddy did. I'm not one of those people, but they're out there. It's not always about their job... sometimes it was just their personality, their social position, their importance to the family or a hobby they pursued. Today we wanted to know: DON'T EVER TELL THEM I TOLD YOU THIS, BUT MY PARENTS WERE ACTUALLY PRETTY GOOD AT ___________.
I can safely say that I would never want to do what my father did for a living, as his job involved things like math, but there are a bunch of cowboy- related attributes the man has that we only hear about on rare occasions. Turns out, the man can ride a horse like no one's business (didn't know) and can shoot small targets from ridiculous distances (which I've seen on occasion) and he can quilt. QUILT! Two outta three aint bad.
So we know celebrity kids love to follow their parent's lead. Here's a small sample:
Gwyneth Paltrow... daughter of actress Blythe Danner and movie producer Bruce Paltrow... doesn't matter, but when you have to hear her pretentious ass go on about how hard she worked to get to where she is, you wonder if she would have the stomach to work as hard as the people who got a gig in Hollywood without the nepotism
Willow and Jaden Smith... again, who cares, but when Will Smith commented that Willow "worked very hard" to get her music career going, you ask yourself who he's trying to convince of that. I know HE worked hard for what he has, but...
Sophia Coppola... nice to have Francis Ford as a relative
Nicholas Cage... nice to have Francis Ford as a relative
Michael Douglas... son of Kirk
Kiefer Sutherland... son of Donald
Donald Trump... for all the sh*t this moron talks, it should noted that he inherited his business from his father. He likes to leave that part out of his showboating
Miley Cyrus... Billy Ray Cyrus
George Clooney... Rosemary Clooney
Angelina Jolie... Jon Voight
Sean Astin... Patty Duke
Colin Hanks... Tom Hanks
Eva Amurri... Susan Sarandon
Liza Minelli... Judy Garland
Jeff and Beau Bridges... Lloyd Bridges
Bryce Dallas Clark... Ron Howard
Hard working folks right there. Well, that's not a completely fair statement, I guess, but I think we can all agree that it must be nice to have an "in" to a life of millions of dollars and adulation. I'll let you think about that. Yeeeaaaaa.
