Move over Beyoncé, your queen status is in jeopardy!
In a survey conducted by Variety, 3,000 gay males were asked to pick their favorite celebrity-endorsed advertising campaigns (think Brad Pitt for Chanel), and the results may surprise you!
When choosing their #1 celebrity spokesperson, these qualities were the most important: genuine, honest, trustworthy, intelligent, and reliable. Least important were classy, tough, trendy, family-friendly, and wholesome.
Hmmm…which celeb do you think fits the bill based on those attributes?
Find out which celebrity gay men favored most …AFTER THE JUMP!!!
Out of all the people surveyed, a whopping 97% chose Ellen DeGeneres as their favorite celebrity to endorse products! Jane Lynch, Bey, and Elton John were close contenders.
While Ellen isn't who popped into our minds immediately, we think the choice TOTALLY makes sense. She's a super successful, smart, and HIGHlarious lady. Not to mention she's openly gay, which is another quality the surveyed population admires.
We think the survey is great timing for the talk show host since she has plans to release a home goods and clothing and accessories line, 'E.D.', for this up-coming holiday season.
Girl is just on fire lately…winning over the gays is the first step to world domination! We love you, Ellen!
