Alas, famous people with no internet savvy are crawling all over Beverly Hills while their poor assistants have had to learn how to use smoke signals to get a hold of them. In fact, there are a shocking number of celebrities who don't understand the Internet – like, at all.
Half of the people on this list are befuddled by a simple Google search. Some stories of celebrities and the Internet can be endearing, but others are infuriatingly ignorant. Seriously, there's no shortage of seemingly intelligent famous people who believe the Internet is just some short-lived fad.

DMX has no idea how to use a computer to search for anything online. "I can do it on the phone!" he boasts while speaking with Power 105.1.
