8 Celebrities Mishaps That Probably Will Stick With Them Forever

2 years ago

Celebrities, like the rest of us, are human, and they too have their moments of awkwardness and humiliation. The major difference is that they are caught on video far more frequently. Whether it’s bad pitches, closet breakdowns, or on-stage performances, big stars have had their share of embarrassing moments.

Some of them eventually laughed about it, while others are still paying the price for their blunders. Today at Bright Side, we’ll look at eight of the most iconic and humiliating celebrity fails that they’ll never forget.

1. Blake Lively

Every woman on the planet wants her wedding day to be perfect and will go to any extent to make it so. For the famous Gossip Girl actress, not everything went as planned, as an unfortunate mishap irreparably tore into Lively’s wedding gown. Although Ryan Reynolds and Blake have been very private about their wedding ceremony in 2012, they have revealed this unexpected episode during an interview.

“Florence Welch was singing at the reception, and they brought out these sparklers, and I’m watching her sing. I look down, and my wedding dress has a big burn mark from one sparkler. Right in the front! And it was just so heartbreaking for me.”

Despite the serious damage, her husband made her love the dress even more. “And later, my dress was hanging up and Ryan said, ‘Isn’t that beautiful? You’ll always remember that moment. You have that forever, right there, preserved.’ Now, that’s my favorite part of the dress.”

2. Taylor Swift and Kanye West

Taylor Swift, the renowned country singer, won the Best Music Video award in 2009 for her song “You Belong with Me” beating finalists Beyoncé, Lady Gaga, Pink, and others. However, her amazing moment was cut short by rapper Kanye West, who stormed the stage and embarrassed a 19-year-old Taylor.

“Yo, Taylor, I’m truly delighted for you. Imma let you finish, but Beyoncé has one of the best videos of all time,” Kanye stopped, stunning everyone in the auditorium and watching at home. Taylor subsequently commented on the episode, explaining how she felt: “I’m not going to say I wasn’t rattled by it. I had to perform live five minutes later, so I had to get myself back to the place where I could perform.”

3. Olivia Rodrigo and Taylor Swift

Olivia Rodriguez walked away with three trophies at the 2022 Grammy Awards. Unfortunately, not everything ran smoothly that night, and Olivia, while posing in the winners’ photo room after the ceremony, dropped one of her prizes, and the golden gramophone quickly broke in half as expected.

The accident brought to many people’s attention what happened to Taylor Swift in 2010. The award-winning singer has been nominated over 40 times and has built a name for herself in the music scene. However, Taylor had trouble keeping track of four prizes that night, and one gramophone was dropped and cracked. Olivia Rodrigo has long adored Taylor Swift, and she can now boast that she shares a trait with the blonde singer.

4. Jennifer Lawrence

Jennifer Lawrence had just won her first Academy Award when she experienced a truly humiliating moment in front of the entire world. The actress slipped on the stairwell on her way up to accept her Best Actress award in 2013.

They also gave Jennifer Lawrence a standing ovation for her win. However, she felt they were doing it for pity. She later opened up about her embarrassment during that moment, “I was very nervous and also very superstitious. I didn’t want to acknowledge the possibility that I would win,” Lawrence reminisced about that night.

The actress continues: “I was very nervous, but I was ready. All the adrenaline clears out, and they call my name. I’m in shock. And then I fell, and it erased everything from my mind. I can look back at it now fondly, but for a long time the fall thing was very sensitive.”

5. Madonna and Drake

Madonna startled Coachella attendees in April 2015 when she kissed Drake, who was sitting on the stage, to dance with her. Madonna slipped behind him while pushing his chin backward and laying a kiss on his lips. Drake’s enthusiasm seemed to lessen as time went on and as the kiss ended, he leaned forward and opened his mouth, perhaps in distaste or surprise. Drake’s reaction offended many people, since he appeared to be disgusted by the kiss.

After the photo went viral, Drake posted on Instagram that it had been “misinterpreted.” Nonetheless, the photo represents an unpleasant and slightly amusing moment for both of them.

6. Cameron Diaz

Wardrobe malfunctions happen all the time, and they’re much more awful when they happen on the red carpet in front of cameras and fans. Cameron Diaz, Lucy Liu, and Drew Barrymore were wearing matching white gowns to the Charlie’s Angels 2 premiere in 2003 when Diaz’s shoes broke minutes before the event. Thus, the actress flung them off and strutted down the red carpet barefoot, towering over her co-stars.

7. Steve Harvey

Imagine being crowned Miss Universe and then having to relinquish your title because of a gaffe. Steve Harvey, the host of Miss Universe 2015, proclaimed Miss Colombia as the winner instead of Miss Philippines who had won the competition. Miss Colombia discovered that host Steve Harvey had misread the results live on television while blowing kisses and waving to her devoted supporters.

Steve incorrectly claimed that Miss Colombia had won the title, and once he realized that Miss Philippines was the winner, he had to return to the stage and retract his mistake. The blunder caught everyone off guard, resulting in a flurry of reactions. Steve later apologized live on TV and also through a series of tweets. “This was a terribly honest human mistake, and I am so regretful.”

8. Katy Perry

Katy Perry has put on several memorable performances over the course of her career. When performing at MTV’s Latin America Awards in 2008, the artist leaped into a massive desert. Her spectacular performance, however, did not go as planned, as the diva slipped on the icing and fell dramatically a minute later. It’s amusing how many times she tries to go offstage, just to slide and fall again.
