Which Celebrity Would You Want To Be Your Neighbor?
There are celebrity lists of all kinds, from People’s Sexiest Man Alive to Time Magazine’s Person of the Year, to Forbes World’s Billionaire List. But have you ever thought which famous people you’d be ok with having as a neighbor? For me, the Ozzy Osborn family would be at the absolute bottom of that list, although I would not mind living in their house! Top of my list would probably me my favorite musician, Alanis Morrisette – she’s not the angry feminist that people make her out to be, and if I lived next to her I might get to hear her sing and pick her brain about life once in awhile.
Who would most Americans say they’d love to have live next door? Zillow.com decided to find out… in their survey, Zillow asked 1,000 Americans which celebrities they would most like to have as their neighbor as well as those they wouldn’t dare share a fence with. Turns out, the Singer-songwriter Taylor Swift is America’s favorite neighbor. Swift was voted as the top neighbor with 12 percent of the votes. She was in the top 3 last year when Zillow conducted the same survey, but she was able to nab the top spot after a third-place finish last year. Actress Jennifer Lawrence was a very close second with 11 percent, and comedian Amy Schumer rounded out the top three, with 9 percent of the votes.
Meanwhile, Republican presidential candidate and real estate mogul Donald Trump topped this year’s list for worst neighbor at a whopping 24 percent (makes me wonder about that 7 percent who said he’d be the best neighbor!). Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are also not desirable as neighbors, with 22 percent responding that they would not want to live next door to the self-described power couple.
Here’s a look at how the celebrities stacked up on this year’s survey.
