Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus also named in least desirable neighbours list
Kanye West and Kim Kardashian have been named as the worst neighbours of 2013 in a new survey.
The rapper and his TV personality wife had the dubious honour of taking first place in the poll by real estate website Zillow in their Celebrity Neighbour Survey. A quarter of Americans surveyed in the list named West and Kardashian as the least desirable neighbours of the year, putting them ahead of the cast of the show Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.
Zillow’s Chief Marketing Officer Amy Bohutinsky said: “No one wants to live next door to a family who has cameras following them everywhere and seems to seek out as much attention as possible. However, with more than one-third of surveyed Americans preferring a non-celebrity neighbor, what remains clear is that many people don’t want to live next to any celebrity, regardless of why they are famous.”
16 per cent of people surveyed claimed that Miley Cyrus and Justin Bieber would be the worst neighbours imaginable, with 4 per cent plumping for Lady Gaga instead. Comedian Jimmy Fallon was chosen as the most desirable neighbour, meanwhile, with 11 per cent of the vote.
Earlier this week (December 23), Kanye West promised not to say anything controversial for “six months”. Speaking onstage in Toronto, he said: “Everything I’m saying that’s not allowed, soak it in right now. This might be the last time y’all hear me talk shit for a long time. Might be another like six months. At least. You’re just gonna have to run back the interviews and shit if you wanna hear some realness.”
West also recently spoke about his plans for the follow-up to his recent album ‘Yeezus’. The rapper, who said he wants to release the LP in the summer of 2014, said: “I think my next album is going to be eight songs,” he said. “It’s just reducing down the amount of information that you need. People say a design is the point where you can’t take anything else away. [‘Yeezus’] was very, very designed.”
‘Yeezus’, which is West’s sixth studio album, was released in June of this year and went on to debut at Number One on the Official UK Albums Chart.
