In the Harry Potter series, Hogwarts's Sorting Hat places new students into one of four different houses. It traditionally reads the minds of those wearing it and identifies their key qualities, placing them in the house whose members best personify those characteristics. Most of the antagonists in the Harry Potter series - Tom Riddle (AKA Voldemort), Draco Malfoy, and even Severus Snape - belonged to Slytherin.
Famous folks love sorting themselves into one of the four fictional houses; in fact, there are tons of celebrities who are total Slytherins. Each possesses traits typified by Slytherins, ones that can be good or bad, depending on they are used. Who are these famous people who would be sorted into Slytherin?
For example, musicians Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj possess the Slytherin trait of being ambitious, hard workers. Other stars who belong in Slytherin, like Kris Jenner or Donald Trump, long thirsted for power and thrust themselves into our lives in unwelcome ways. Let's dive deep into discussions of which celebs are Slytherins and why.
After her snake-filled "Look What You Made Me Do" video hit the internet in 2017, there can be no doubt that controversial pop star Taylor Swift would be a Slytherin. After all, the house's founder, Salazar Slytherin, was a Parseltongue (he could speak to serpents) and one such snake resided in the Chamber of Secrets. Besides her associations with actual snakes, Swift's manipulative and dishonest ways are giving off major Malfoy vibes.
