I love Ariana Grande, she is beautiful I kinda like how she changed. I like her hair how she puts it in a ponytail, not so much loving the clothes though. But anyways she has a sweet voice and sure she yells at paparazzi because they yell at her a shove her around I would yell at them too it's allot of stress they put on you and even the fans.

She makes her character on Victorious seen like a genius. - VictoriaJusticeFan

She is so funny on sam&cat

She is the most talented pop singer in the whole industry by now BUT...she is voting for Hillary Clinton and that does not make her one of the smartest celebs. This is my opinion. She is way smarter than taylor swift and selena Gomez though. Ariana is my idol too. Cannot wait for Dangerous Woman! <3 X999999999 - grak111

Terribly smart. Watch "Word Crimes"

75 Marilyn Manson Marilyn Manson Brian Hugh Warner, better known by his stage name Marilyn Manson, is an American musician, songwriter, actor, painter, multimedia artist, author, and former music journalist.

He should be at least in the top ten. Although many see him and his music as a bad influence, his music does have meaning (even if some don't understand it) and he's very intelligent. Just watch interviews with him. You'll see what I mean. He's also very nice. I have a lot of respect for him even if many others don't. I hate how people often blame him for bad things that happen. But I guess you always gotta blame someone for something, especially if it's a musician. It's ridiculous.

Just watch the Bill O'reilly, Bowling for Columbine, and Politically Incorrect interviews and you will see how smart he is - ComaWhite21

He's very smart even though he might of gotten ribs removed to have oral sex on himself

76 Danica McKellar
