Chatbots are mostly intended to be practical and helpful. They help us with our daily tasks so that we can focus on what we do best. But it’s not all serious work.

Since we’re living in the era of connectivity, we’re connected to our favorite celebrities via Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook. The problem, of course, is that celebrities rarely say anything back. But now this empty space of conversing with your beloved stars is filled with chatbots! We can ask them about their lives and their upcoming projects.

Last time, I talked to some random chatbots and explained how they replied. This time I took on celebrity chatbots. Take a look!

1. Selena Gomez


Everybody loves Selena Gomez. She’s gorgeous and makes some good music. But have you ever thought about talking to her, asking about her life and her music? Talking to the SelenaBot was a good experience. The bot replied instantly. It greeted me in a nice way *blushes*, and when I asked her about her favorite songs, she told me! If you’re a Selena fan, then you should definitely try talking to this chatbot.

2. Elon Musk


The Ask Elon Musk chatbot is a total sarcastic badass, like the man himself. If you want to know anything about SpaceX, Tesla, or AI, it’s there for you. The Elon Musk chatbot is good at giving advice as well. It felt like I’m actually talking to Elon (including the cocky attitude), and did I tell you that it has an awesome “Elon Musk for President” t-shirt? I’m definitely gonna buy one!

3. Kanye West


As a rap star and unfiltered internet sensation, Kanye West gets trolled 365 days a year (366 in leap years). Forget the Kardashian connection — this guy is really interesting in his own right, and so is his chatbot. Kanyewestbot entertains you with his bold way of talking about his life, his songs, and of course his wife. The script is good, and it does feel like you’re talking to the real Kanye.

4. Eric Cartman


Deep learning and deep fried! OK, so it’s not based on a real person, but this Eric Cartman chatbot is creating a buzz for its sharp style of conversing and its hilarious South Park references. It even swears like Cartman! If you’re a South Park fan, you’ll enjoy talking to this chatbot. The best celebrity chatbot award goes to Eric, my man.

5. George Takei


George Takei? Who doesn’t wanna talk to him — especially if you’re a Star Trek fan! From motivational talk to dad jokes, this chatbot offers the unique experience of having a conversation with George Takei. There are a few hiccups in the scripts, but those are present in almost every bot. Talk to this bot to start your day with a smile.
