If you live here, you get it; Kansas is a gorgeous state with wonderful people, sights, food and history. But have you ever wondered what celebrity A-listers think of the Sunflower State? We did a little digging and here’s what we found:
1. Selena Gomez
During her visit to KC MO for the Big Slick Celebrity Weekend, the "Love You Like a Love Song" singer wasn't afraid to show her love of the Royals! **Side Note: I know somebody is going to say it, so I'm going to write this again: Yes, the Royals play on the MO side of KC, but the fan base is primarily Kansas. See: St. Louis Cardinals.**

Not only is the late night host hilarious, he has great taste in teams! #RockChalk
