9 Random Celebrity Godparents That Will Make You Go WTF

Unless you’re super religious or just super obsessed with Marlon Brando, godparents aren’t something you probably ever think about.

Why would you?

Godparents don’t do shit for you in real life. They don’t even send you birthday cards full of money like your grandparents do.

Still, even though godparents aren’t really important in the grand scheme of life, at least celebrity godparents tend to be famous, which means they’re automatically kind of interesting. And even better, most of the time they’re super random.

Here’s 13 of our favorite random ass celebrity godparents.

1. Dolly Parton

Okay, so this one you maybe knew, but Dolly Parton is Miley Cyrus’s godmother, which explains why Miley sings “Jolene” all the damn time.

2. Michael Jackson

Okay, so there may have been a handful of concerns about MJ surrounding himself with children all the time, but at least his goddaughter Nicole Richie turned out all right.

3. Steven Spielberg

Unlike most godparents, Steven Spielberg is the best. Sure, he set Drew Barrymore on a path of child stardom that temporarily led to her doing way too many drugs and flashing her tits on David Letterman, but he made that bitch famous, okay?

Fun fact: he’s also godfather to the world’s second most hated white woman, Gwyneth Paltrow!!!

Clearly, he did less of a good job providing guidance here.

Ahhh summer. Schools out. Vodka on a weeknight. @svedkavodka #summerwithsvedka

4. Taylor Swift

Back in 2015, everybody wanted to prove how close they were with T Swift, so before Jaime King had even HAD her child, she announced on INSTAGRAM that T Swift would be the grandmother.

Because that doesn’t seem thirsty at all.

Guess who just got named Godmother of this little one….. (ME) @jaime_king @kyle_newman

5/6. Lady Gaga and Victoria Beckham

When Elton John and his non famous husband adopted twin boys, they just knew that the only two godmothers for the job were Lady Gaga and Victoria Beckham. Seriously, can you imagine any other context where these two would willingly ever have a conversation with each other?

7. Bono

Brangelina may be getting divorced, but they’ll never be able to take back the fact that they let Bono be the godfather to their twins.

8. Kate Moss

When you think Kate Moss, you probably don’t think, “oh, there’s a person who’s perfect to provide my child spiritual guidance,” unless you’re Jude Law and you’ve just had a baby girl named Iris in which case, you think she’s just the model you’re looking for.
