No matter who you are, regardless of star status, everyone has their fair share of fans and haters. Celebrities just have more than most. Star magazine compiled a list of twenty celebrities who have more people loathing them, than adoring them. Check out which controversial singers, self-promoting reality TV stars and pretentious actors made the list.
Naturally, Chris Brown made the cut. Ever since assaulting then-girlfriend Rihanna back in 2009, he’s been on many people’s hit list. His seemingly lack of remorse and douchey attitude hasn’t helped redeem his image. Surprisingly, the R&B singer lands at No. 20. Believe it or not, there are 19 other personalities more hated than him.
Kim Kardashian, whom I loathe, and mom-ager Kris Jenner only placed at 11th and 10th respectively. Anne Hathaway with her perceived faux humility and humbleness during the Oscar awards season earned her a No. 9 slot. Not even cheating Kristen Stewart with her surly and less-than-thrilled expressions snagged the top spot. She came up short in the runner-up slot. Find out who the “Most Hated Celebrity In Hollywood” is below and the rest of the Top 20.
Sometimes Nicole Scherzinger makes me really laugh. Recently, the former Pussycat Dolls singer revealed to UK’s The Independent on Sunday that she sometimes wishes she was “more slutty” because she’d probably be more successful if she were. Ummm, does she not remember her PCD days? Love the girl group, but if that wasn’t the definition of slutty, I don’t know what is. Oh wait… I forgot about Girlicious ;)
Donning a ball gown and belting out a beloved musical track probably isn’t the best way to become sluttier, if that’s what she really wants. The 34-year-old singer performed “Don’t Cry For Me Argetina” as a tribute for prolific musical maestro Andrew Lloyd Webber. It’s so weird not seeing her doing pelvic thrusts or writhing around on the floor ;) On a side note: Isn’t it funny how much more Nicole is well received across the pond than in the US. I wonder why that is?
Scherzinger was one of many, including Samantha Barks (Les Miserables), Il Divo and Melanie C, to perform at ITV’s Andrew Lloyd Webber 40 Years. Check out her performance below, along with Madonna’s rendition from the movie adaptation of Evita. Be sure to comment on which performance you prefer in the comments section after viewing them.
“#secret project. I want to start a revolution! Are you with me?” For weeks Madonna has been teasing her fans about this “secret project” with pictures like this on her Instagram account. What revolution? And why does she want us with her?
The 54-year-old singer just debuted a trailer for said project and it’s even more of a mystery than before. After watching it, I’m even more clueless. The 60 second clip alternates between a blurry red figure and a twitching bloodshot eye. The one clear thing revealed is that it has something to do with Steven Klein. The photographer previously worked with Madge on numerous tour visuals, which would indicate perhaps the project involves her recent successful MDNA tour. That global romp was the highest-grossing tour in 2012. Perhaps a DVD is on our way? One can only speculate. Check out the clip below.
Last night in NYC, the 2013 GLAAD Awards took place and Madonna took to the stage to present the Vito Russo Award to Anderson Cooper. The superstar was dressed as a boy scout and slammed the organization for their ridiculous rule.
Madonna spoke about equality and in the world, we can not use religion or God to justify acts of violence, hate and discrimination in the world. “I don’t know about you, but I can’t take this sh*t anymore,” she said.
Madonna then transitioned into her introduction for Anderson Cooper and the work that he’s done for the work he has done to promote equality and for how brave he has been in that regard. “You stand up for the rights of others, and you say ‘This is who I am, like it or not. Love me or leave me, but I’m never gonna stop.‘”Watch both Madonna’s speech and Anderson’s acceptance speech below. It’s definitely worth watching.
After last week’s lackluster episode (IMHO), I’m hoping Glee rebounds with “Feud.” I have a strong feeling it might. Especially after listening to all six tracks from Thursday’s show. The mashups featuring infamous celebrity feuds are pretty awesome. Finn (Cory Monteith) and Mr. Schu (Matthew Morrison) channel their feelings surrounding Emma-gate on stage with an ‘N Sync (“Bye Bye Bye”) and Backstreet Boys (“I Want It That Way”) mashup. Bravo to Ryan Murphy. Having these two characters perform boy band songs is absolutely perfect.
The second mashup involving a highly-publicized feud involves tracks by Elton John and Madonna. His “The Bitch Is Back” is mixed with her “Dress You Up.” The last celeb battle is a recent one and absolute perfect synergy given that Glee airs after American Idol. I never thought a mashup between Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj would be possible, but the show managed to pull it off. To be fair, the Carey song is actually a cover of Brenda K. Starr’s classic 80s ballad “I Still Believe” (love, love, love this track).
If mashups aren’t your thing, the episode also has covers of current hits by Tegan & Sara (“Closer”) and Marina and the Diamonds (“How to Be a Heartbreaker”). The latter is performed by Rachel (Lea Michele) and Brody (Dean Geyer). I assume it’s about Brody being a male gigolo. I wonder how much he charges ;) Speaking of that sticky situation, Santana slays it on Paula Abdul’s “Cold Hearted Snake” while doling out some sage advice to Rachel. Listen to all the tracks below.
Now that he’s officially an out and proud homosexual, Anderson Cooper will be honored at the 24th annual GLAAD Media Awards in New York City on March 16. The organization is awarding their prestigious Vito Russo Award to the 45-year-old journalist. Named after one of it’s founding members, the Vito Russo Award goes to an openly LGBT media professional who has made a significant difference in promoting equality for the LGBT community. Recent winners include Craig Zadan and Neil Meron (2012), Ricky Martin (2011) and Cynthia Nixon (2010).
On hand to present Anderson with the honor is none other than Madonna herself. GLAAD President Herndon Graddick says Madonna and Cooper are longtime friends who have both used their careers to support lesbian, gay and transgender people.
“From speaking out against bullying to raising support for marriage equality, Madonna has always been one of our community’s strongest allies. We are honored to have her stand with GLAAD and Anderson Cooper,” said Graddick.”
As you recall, Cooper declined for many years to speak publicly about his sexuality. Last July, he gave permission to publish an email to blogger Andrew Sullivan. In the correspondence, the CNN reporter declared he was gay and “couldn’t be more happy.” A few months later, Anderson discussed his “coming out” on his daytime talk show.
If Thursday’s Glee episode is anything like that wicked Beyonce-Off Ryan Murphy leaked last week, it’s going to be beyond divalicious. With covers of Madonna, Alicia Keys, Barbra Streisand, Tina Turner and Beyonce on deck, the episode is appropriately titled, “Diva.” I can’t wait. Personally, I think the fourth season of the FOX musical is its best one since the first season. I like the mix of the old and new crew, plus the musical performances have been on point.
In addition to the cast battling it out to be top Diva, the episode finds Santana (Naya Rivera) returning back to Lima to sing three numbers. When she finds out that Brittany (Heather Morris) and Sam (Chord Overstreet) are now dating, she decides to cause problems for the new couple. She even challenges Sam on a sing-off on Barbra Streisand’s “Make No Mistake, She’s Mine.”
Check out that duet below along with all the performances for Glee‘s upcoming episode. Once again, Tina (Jenna Ushkowitz) gets another solo. Miss Tina Cohen-Chang has certainly been blessed with more vocal responsibility this season. I wonder what she did to get in the producers’ good graces.
Rolling Stone conducted a poll on their site as to who readers thought put on The Greatest Super Bowl Halftime Show and the result was Madonna‘s spectacular 2012 performance. The Queen incorporated Cee Lo Green, LMFAO, Nicki Minaj, M.I.A. and even acrobats into her elaborate show. The next day, tickets for her world tour went on sale and then sold out everywhere.
This year, Beyonce is taking the lead for the Super Bowl Halftime show and I’m certainly not worried about her delivering. She’s going to kill it I’m sure – the only thing I’m eager to know is who else is going to be involved. Is Justin Timberlake actually going to be taking the stage with her? Will all three Destiny’s Child members reunite on stage for some of their greatest hits? Can you imagine if Beyonce, Lady Gaga, Rihanna, and Azealia Banks performed their upcoming “Rachet” song? Insanity.
