Ashton Kutcher shares credit advice with teens!
Tonight the teen choice awards announced it's winners of the nominees voted by teens. Ashton Kutcher was the first to win an award for the night for best male actor in "No strings attached". When Kutcher approached the stage to give his speech he didn't give the normal thank you to all my fans speech, he told the teens sitting in the audience he had some advice for them. "Don't ever charge anything on credit card, if you don't already have the money in the bank!" After his advice he started singing Katy Perry's "Teenage Dream" and walked off stage while fans continued to sing and clap.
Critics are calling Ashton "wacky" for giving advice like that on an awards show, but I think it's quiet smart. You have a anticipated show that brings in a few million views of an audience of teenagers or younger. We have a debt crisis that will effect the future generations when it comes to school, medicare, and retiring. This is the perfect place to make teens aware of whats happening in the country. If they can ask a teenager or 8 year old to donate 10 dollars to a cancer foundation during the show, Ashton Kutcher can tell his teen fans stay away from credit cards if you don't have money to pay it back.
