I love when people fall over, as long as they are okay of course, but what’s better than the average person tripping up? A celebrity falling on stage for all of us to laugh at. AOL have come up with a list of 10 celebrities who have fallen over and here they are for you to laugh at.
10. Christina Aguilera
Christina Aguilera’s stiletto stumble after an Aretha Franklin tribute at the Grammys was tabloid gold following her National Anthem flub at the Super Bowl, just one week before.
09. Mariah Carey
Mariah Carey was in the middle of crowd hyping when her overhead clap caused her to collapse to the floor. Like a true diva, MiMi’s entourage swept her up and got her back on her fabulous feet in no time.
08. Musiq Soulchild
R&B singer Musiq Soulchild danced himself right off the edge of the stage during a show at Madison Square Garden. Peep Musiq’s plummet at :10!
P!nk may have taken up trapeze tricks as her new hobby, but the singer-turned-acrobat was taken down by the wired hula hoops at :46. She later tweeted from a German ambulance, “I am embarrassed and very sorry. I’m in ambulance now but I will b fine.”
Rihanna was brought to her knees during a performance of ‘What’s My Name’ at a show in Canada. “Oh na na” no! Later that same week, RiRi suffered a second stage fall during her concert in Toronto.
05. Robbie Williams
Robbie Williams wiped out on stage and proceeded to give a full on explanation for the fall to the audience from the floor, rather than continue with the song. “That’s a bit embarrassing. That will teach me for being cocky,” he admits before labeling himself a “t—.”
04. Shania Twain
Country music queen Shania Twain fell from grace while making an entrance at the Country Music Television awards show. “I don’t need a stunt double,” she joked just moments after.
03. Lady Gaga
Lady Gaga is known for her crazy stage stunts and live show shock tactics, but sometimes the best stage moments are the unplanned mishaps. Gaga’s tumble from atop her piano bench is one such blooper.
02. Joe Jonas
During what should have been a smooth stage entrance, Jonas Brother Joe hit a speed bump, tripping over the frame of a window and landing hands-first into a floor full of broken glass. Ouch!
Beyonce lands on our list, yet again, for failing to plant her heels on the steps of a seemingly mile-high staircase on the live stage. One misstep and Queen B fell from her throne and went tumbling down … and down … and down!
Christina Aguilera was spotted at LAX airport yesterday carrying her 3-year-old son Max which is a normal thing but this time Max was sporting a black eye and suddenly several websites started saying it was her fault.
This is all nothing but bullshit according to TMZ who are told by sources close to Aguilera that the bruise is just a typical childhood injury after Max fell.
Apparently the 3-year-old was out with his nanny last week chasing squirrels in a park and then he tripped over a rock and bruised his face, Christina wasn’t even there when it happened. After the accident Max was taken to a doctor and was told everything is fine, he didn’t have a broken nose and didn’t even need stitches it was just “your average boyhood bruise.”
“The reports are actually disgusting. Christina is an amazing mom. Max is a happy playful and active boy who has a loving and safe home,” a source tells Us Weekly.
Christina is apparently furious over claims that the accident was caused by her “erratic behavior and alleged booze-filled outings” that she has called her lawyer, Eric Greenspan, in on it.
TMZ report that Greenspan sent a letter to MediaTakeOut.com after they published the story with the headline “CHILD ABUSE???? CHRISTINA AGUILERA’S SON IS PHOTO’D WITH A BLACK EYE!!!” The letter states:
“Christina is a wonderful mother and was not present in the park when Max fell and hurt himself. To imply that she had something to do with this incident, without any investigation on your part whatsoever, is reckless and unconscionable. HAVE YOU NO SHAME!!!!”
The website has since changed the title to “CHRISTINA AGUILERA’S SON IS PHOTO’D WITH A BLACK EYE!!!” Funny how they changed their tune as soon as they received a legal letter.
I think it’ absolutely disgusting that people would write about her abusing her son, she may have gone through a rough patch but you can always tell she is a good mother and besides what child hasn’t fallen over and bruised themselves?
Justin Timberlake is featured in the interview section of the July issue of Playboy Magazine and in it he gives an in dept interview about his life, which includes smoking a ton of weed.
Justin also discusses his music career, which he says he hasn’t got any music in the pipeline despite not releasing anything since his 2006 ht album FutureSex/LoveSounds, as well as that the former *NSync star also talks about the many women he has been linked to since splitting up with Jessica Biel which Olivia Wilde, Ashley Olsen and Mila Kunis. Here is part of the interview:
On smoking pot: “Absolutely [I’m a pot smoker]…The only thing pot does for me is it gets me to stop thinking. Sometimes I have a brain that needs to be turned off. Some people are just better high.”
On his sex scene with Mila Kunis: “I’d be lying if I said it wasn’t completely awkward. I couldn’t tell you the number of people in the crew watching me and my bare a*s, but it was a lot. The producers and I agreed we would shoot a big chunk of the movie before we got down to the sex scenes, which was a good idea. That allowed Mila and me time to get comfortable…Most of the sex scenes are actually played for laughs, and she’s such a gifted comedian…a lot of the time it was just me making a fool of myself. You can’t be shy with comedy even when you’re standing there naked.”
On if he has had any friends with benefits: “I don’t think I’ve ever had that type of relationship. I get hooked on every level when I get close to someone. If you build enough chemistry to want to be intimate like that, someone’s going to catch feelings, and usually it happens quickly.”
On his former Mickey Mouse Club castmates: “What’s funny is I didn’t know at the time that the people around me would go on to so many great things. The exception was Christina Aguilera. She was the prodigy. She could sing better than the adults who had huge deals at the time. We always felt she was going to become Whitney Houston or Mariah Carey…I still love to see people from those days making good on their talent. It’s a special connection.”
On making new music: “I don’t have a single song ready to go. People keep asking me when a new song or album is coming out, and I don’t know what to say. Music is not my focus right now. It may be someday. It could happen next month or next year but right now it’s not where it’s at for me. Unfortunately, the business of music is what taints an artist’s desire to make music…I love making music. I honestly love it. But there is a level where making music becomes a total life-s*cking commitment. For instance, to do an album and a tour, you have to be absolutely certain that whatever you have to say is from the heart, because you’re going to say it a thousand times – and on nights when you don’t feel like performing. You need to feel inspiration to get to a level where you’re performing like that. But I haven’t felt that level of conviction the past few years. And without that conviction it’s crazy to put yourself out there.”
On why he dates women in the industry: “You probably gravitate toward people who understand your scenario. At the end of the day you just want someone who gets you, who can be a friend. That’s kind of the point of Friends with Benefits. As corny as it sounds, the ‘friends’ part counts just as much as the ‘benefits’ part, if not more.”
I’m not going to lie I’ve always wanted to have the life of Justin Timberlake. He has it pretty good doesn’t he? Between hooking up with the hottest women and smoking a ton of weed. Yeah I’d definitely change shoes with him if I had the opportunity. The full interview is available at Playboy‘s website or you can buy it when it hits newsstands on Friday.
When will celebrities ever learn that when you are taking private and intimate photos of yourself to make sure you NEVER lose your camera or memory chip? Christina Aguilera is the latest victim of stupidity because hundreds of private photos are being shopped around according to RadarOnline.
Apparently some man is going around selling hundreds of photos of the singer after he found a digital card in a French hotel and all the pictures are time-stamped from June-November 2010. RadarOnline claims to have seen 109 of the photos that the man is trying to sell, he says that Christina and her boyfriend, Matt Rutler, lost the card when they stayed in the hotel. Some of the photos are described as:
* Aguilera with two naked men who appear to be strippers performing at another bachelorette party, which Lindsay Lohan’s ex-girlfriend Samantha Ronson also attended;
* Aguilera mimicking performing oral sex on an unidentified male who is holding a sex toy;
* Aguilera dancing on a table with friends at a private dinner;
* Aguilera mimicking an oral sex act on a chocolate covered banana at a theme park; and
* Aguilera posing for before-and-after make-up shots.
There are also around 17 photos from Nicole Richie‘s bachelorette party which took place in Mexico, some of the photos show Nicole herself in them. Other photos apparently show Christina and Rutler kissing and lying in bed together as well as private moments with Christina and her son, Max Bratman.
This isn’t the first time Christina has had private photos leak of herself, she had some leak online back in December 2010 which showed her in various stages of undress. There is no word on if these are the same photos that the FBI are investigating in their hacker search.
I have no problem with nude photos of celebrities leaking but I really hope that no news outlets buy and publish the photos of her with her son. If she is smart she should buy these photos herself.
Vanessa Hudgens met up with the FBI on Wednesday afternoon to talk about her recent batch of nude photos that leaked onto the internet and now it’s emerged that a team of hackers are behind the leaks.
TMZ reports that the FBI are investigating the group of hackers who have hacked into a bunch of celebrities, sports stars and politicians private email accounts and mobile devices and have images and photos from each of them.
The list of celebrities includes Jessica Alba, Selena Gomez, Demi Lovato, Christina Aguilera, Vanessa Hudgens, Ali Larter, Busy Philipps, Scarlett Johansson, Miley Cyrus, Emma Caulfield, Addison Timlin and Renee Olstead.
Apparently the FBI know who the ringleader of the group is, I’d love to know why they haven’t done anything about it yet. I think the real question and concern in all of this is how come these people are so stupid to still take and send nude photos of themselves given that every other celebrity has had stuff leak online. Money can’t buy brains I guess.
Britney Spears is gearing up to drop her new album, Femme Fatale, at the end of this month so this means she is on the promotional tour which leads us to her in the new issue of Out Magazine. Check out part of the interview:
Where were you the first time you heard one of your songs on the radio? “I was in New Orleans, and I was so excited. It’s such a cool feeling to hear your own song play on the radio. I still have the same kind of excitement when I hear any of my songs today.”
When was the first time you saw a Britney Spears drag queen? “In New Orleans singing “Slave 4 U.” I almost died!”
When you were starting out, whose career did you want to mold yours after? “Madonna. No question. She is an amazing entertainer. Besides Madonna, I also admire Sarah Jessica Parker’s career and her shoe collection.”
How would you feel if one of your sons turned out to be gay? “I love my boys no matter what.”
Do you listen to your contemporaries’ music? “Yes. I love Gaga and Rihanna. Rihanna’s “S & M” is awesome.”
Which song from the last 10 years do you wish you had recorded? “Eminem and Rihanna’s “Love the Way You Lie.””
You’ve been married twice — once for only 55 hours. How do you feel about gay marriage? “I think everyone should be treated equally.”
Lady Gaga is… “Unique.”
Christina Aguilera is… “Truly talented.”
You can read the full interview here. It’s pretty much the same thing right through with Britney giving short answers. But either way I do like the photos, she is looking good.
The 2011 Grammy Awards took place last year so to celebrate that Billboard have come up with a list of who they think had the top 10 performances of the last 10 years. Take a look and see if you agree with any of them.
10. Gorillaz, Madonna & De La Soul, 2006
The 48th Grammys started off as no other Grammys had before — with an opening band that wasn’t even three-dimensional. Animated act Gorillaz took to the stage to perform the Record of the Year-nominated “Feel Good Inc.,” joined briefly by the real De La Soul and a hologram of Madonna. But when the real Madge appeared onstage moments later to perform her 2005 hit “Hung Up,” with its sexy dancing and ABBA samples, the Grammy crowd truly let loose.
Radiohead may have shunned the music industry in 2007 when it delivered “In Rainbows” straight to fans using a pay-what-you-want online download, but the band proved it could still play to the Academy (literally) at the 2009 Grammy Awards. Joined by the USC Marching Band, Thom Yorke and co. performed a rendition of “15 Step” that was so rousing, even the frontman shared some of his twitchy dance moves. Eat your heart out, Fleetwood Mac.
8. Kanye West & Daft Punk, 2008
When Kanye West released “Stronger” as a single in 2007, it seemed written in the stars that the rapper and Daft Punk, who is sampled on the tune, would join forces and perform together. At 2008′s 50th Grammys, that’s exactly what happened. Note to the Black Eyed Peas: THIS is how you do a light show!
7. Lady Gaga & Elton John, 2010
Lady Gaga’s performance at the 52nd Grammy Awards was classic not only for its over-the-top theatrics, but for Elton John’s appearance on “Speechless” and the duo’s duet on Elton’s classic “Your Song.” The best part? The conjoined mega-piano Gaga and Elton played on, not to mention the pair’s matching rhinestone glasses.
For the 52nd Grammy Awards in 2010, P!nk took a few lessons from Spider-Man and gave a show-stopping performance of aerial, acrobatic brilliance. P!nk may not have walked away with any trophies that night, but thanks to her high-flying rendition of “Glitter in the Air,” she was the artist everyone was talking about come Monday morning.
5. Beyonce & Tina Turner, 2008
Beyonce and Tina Turner were “rolling, rolling, rolling” as they lit up the stage with their performance of Turner’s “Proud Mary” at the 50th annual Grammys. The show-stopping, glitz and glamour-filled duet proved that Tina still had it, and no one –not even B — was going to take it away from her.
4. T.I., Jay-Z, M.I.A., Lil Wayne & Kanye, 2009
It was as though a new rap supergroup (“the rap pack” seems fitting) formed at the 2009 Grammy Awards, when all facets of hip-hop joined forces for one killer performance of T.I. and Jay-Z’s “Swagga Like Us.” Lil Wayne and Kanye West held their own as usual, but it was a pregnant M.I.A. who stole the show in her sheer polka-dot dress. The fiesty diva didn’t just look like she was about to pop — she actually gave birth three days later.
3. Usher & James Brown, 2005
Between Usher’s Michael Jackson-esque moves during the performance of his 2004 single “Caught Up” and James Brown’s fancy footwork on “Sex Machine,” the two R&B titans’ duet at the 47th Grammys was one to remember. Check out the dance-off toward the end of the set — you can almost see the exact moment when the crown was passed.
2. Melissa Etheridge & Joss Stone, 2005
Melissa Etheridge and Joss Stone may seem like an unlikely pairing, but when you throw Janis Joplin into the equation, it makes perfect sense. Both songstresses possess their own unpolished soulfulness and rock stylings, which proved to be a powerful match in a tribute to Joplin at the 2005 Grammys. Stone started off with “Cry Baby” before being joined by Etheridge, who triumphantly made a return to the stage after being diagnosed with breast cancer one year earlier.
1. Eminem & Elton John, 2001
Eminem infuriated the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation with the homophobia-tinged lyrics on his 2000 album “The Marshall Mathers LP,” and the organization protested the 2001 Grammys because of his involvement. But gay activist Elton John crossed the picket lines and joined Em’s performance of “Stan” at the ceremony in a move that was musically powerful, as well as political.
I agree with most of these but I would have added Christina Aguilera‘s performance of It’s A Man World to the list and maybe ranked Kanye West higher.
One of the top stories coming out of last night’s Super Bowl wasn’t the Green Bay Packers win [I'm still trying to plot to cut Matthews' nasty hair], it wasn’t the lackluster commercials [though I totally want a VW thanks to the little Darth Vader kiddo] and it wasn’t the horrendous excuse of a half time show with the Black Eyed Peas. Seriously…why are they still relevant?!
Most likely, you’re going to hear about Christina Aguilera‘s debacle as she fumbled her way through the Star Spangled Banner [see video].
Sadly, Christina isn’t the first celebrity to turn our nation’s proud anthem into a train wreck. And she certainly won’t be the last.
Here’s a look at some of the company that Christina now keeps, as a result of this memorable flub.
It was July 26, 1990 at the Padres game. Not only did she sound like a dying cat trying to escape the bowels of a grand piano, she grabbed her crotch and spit after being boo’ed by thousands of baseball fans. Way to keep it classy.
2. Michael Bolton
After singing the line “O’er the ramparts we watched” Michael Bolton completely blanks out and freezes. After a quick glance to the cheat sheet in his hand and an awkward silence, he gets the anthem back on track with a slight grin from the Coast Guard standing behind him. Perhaps Mr. Bolton should stick to Time, Love and Tenderness?
3. Keri Hilson
The R&B artist was invited to sing the anthem at an Atlanta Hawks game where she proceeded to chop off part of a verse here and there to create her own version of the Star Spangled Banner. Way to take your creative license a little too far, darlin’.
4. R. Kelly
Yet another artist who felt that the anthem was open to creative interpretation. Now, I’m all for adding your own personal flair to our nation’s anthem, but his R&B remix trying to get the audience to clap along was taking it a bit too far.
5. Hillary Clinton
When Hillary’s campaign trail led her to Iowa she failed to realize her mic was on during the Star Spangled Banner. What was recorded was a lazy, off-key, half-hearted performance that left the public mocking her for weeks.
6. Anita Baker
Last year, legendary jazz singer Anita Baker hit a bad note with the national anthem during game 4 of the NBA Finals. If you listen closely, you can hear Randy Jackson in the background saying “Aww dawg, that’s so pitchy.” The Twitterverse had a field day with Ms. Baker throughout the rest of the series.
7. Jesse McCartney
When the teen pop singer performed our anthem at a NASCAR race in 2009, he goofed by singing “…by the dawn’s early light, whose brought stripes and white stars…” skipping an entire line. The announcer actually said “If he wasn’t so cute, I’d be angry.” REALLY?!
8. Mike Eli
In December 2010, Mike Eli of the Eli Young Band completely blanked on the lyrics while singing the anthem at a Kansas City Chiefs game. He quickly went on the record profusely apologizing for the brain fart, citing it as an embarrassment and hopes that the next time he can blow everyone away. Yeah. Something tells me there will be no next time, kiddo.
9. Tyrese Gibson
In 2009, the singer/actor/model/rapper/Mtv VJ/anthem butcherer reworded the anthem’s lyrics to sing “that our Lakers were still there” instead of “that our flag was still there.” Sadly, the crowd at the Staples Center went on to cheer the rendition. Disrespectful all around. Why do people find this necessary?!
10. Carl Lewis
Oh the performance we all want to forget…but can’t. Not only did Carl Lewis forget the lyrics and sing horrendously off-key…he actually had the audacity to stop mid-anthem and talk for a moment stating “Uh oh, I’ll make up for it now!” before delivering the final line. Stick to the track, Carl.
As I’m sure you’ve all heard by now and can see in the video above, Christina Aguilera was performing the National Anthem at the Super Bowl last night and she messed up the lyrics.
But she has since released a statement saying that the reason she messed up is because she was just caught up in her love for the country. Here is what she said…
“I got so caught up in the moment of the song that I lost my place. I can only hope that everyone could feel my love for this country and that the true spirit of its anthem still came through.”
I’m actually starting to feel bad for Christina, she just can’t seem to catch a break can she? Sure she should have known the lyrics to the song she is singing but I am willing to bet that 90% of people watching didn’t notice the mistake themselves until they read about it. What offended me more about the Super Bowl was the Black Eyed Peas’ awful performance and vocals.
