Things I learned from Google's suggested searches for "Is Celebrity X"

  • People are really interested in who is gay
  • People are also very suspicious of rappers (especially with regards to possible Illuminati involvement)
  • Consequently, rappers are the most fun to ask Google questions about
  • No one seems to know who is dead and who's alive
  • Apparently Alex Turner being "nice" is something of a concern
  • The "Is Snoop Dogg a Rastafarian" question makes sense in light of his recent announcement that he is releasing a reggae album
  • Some people are amazingly stupid ("Is Robert De Niro Jewish" - are you kidding me?)
  • Others have mighty high expectations for Google - I don't think it is qualified to answer your theological questions about Kurt Cobain's place in the afterlife
