Top 10 Musicians Embarrassing Themselves On Stage

The stage is a place where musicians tread the boards to showcase their skills, delivering high octane performances to huge audiences. With energy levels running high – and nerve levels also –sometimes everything cannot be predicted and plotted; sometimes the audience get a little more than they bargained for. From slips, sicks, fights and more – here are some of the top moments where musicians have totally embarrassed themselves onstage.

1. Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga definitely ‘is on the edge’…of vomiting in this performance! Musicians do get it rough sometimes, having to perform in all kinds of illnesses not too disappoint fans – but you can be sure the bucket loads of cash really soften the blow.

2. Justin Bieber

Justin Bieber definitely might have a fever as you see the poor chap get a bit overwhelmed and blow chunks when performing onstage.

3. Pink

This is pretty special. An ideally placed fan picks up a great angle of Pink failing to be launched into the air on a cable. However, instead of being launched into the air – she actually falls into the crowd. The music stops and Pink begins to swear profusely in frustration… Go on girl!

4. Pitbull

Pitbull really does lay the smack down on a fan in the audience – but the audience kind of love it!

5. 50 Cent

In this video, 50 Cent gets attacked by a fan onstage. Least to say, you wouldn’t want to be that person after 50 Cent and the whole possy stop the song and decide to take you to the candy shop for real.

6. Rick Ross

It goes without saying that Rick Ross is a rapper who is larger than life. So, when the hip hop artist falls over – it definitely looks like a struggle to get back up.

7. Katy Perry

[embedplusvideo height=”343″ width=”560″ standard=”http://www.youtube.com/v/E_emNxk1CKQ?fs=1″ vars=”ytid=E_emNxk1CKQ&width=560&height=343&start=&stop=&rs=w&hd=0&autoplay=0&react=1&chapters=&notes=” id=”ep8261″ /]

In this embarrassing video, you can see why cake is now Katy Perry’s worst nightmare.

8. Panic at the Disco

[embedplusvideo height=”343″ width=”560″ standard=”http://www.youtube.com/v/7YHLPjEQL0A?fs=1″ vars=”ytid=7YHLPjEQL0A&width=560&height=343&start=&stop=&rs=w&hd=0&autoplay=0&react=1&chapters=&notes=” id=”ep1898″ /]

Panic at the Disco are terrible, so a fan in the crowd at UK’s Reading festival does everyone a favour and stops the singer from embarrassing him any further. Thanks.

9. Kanye West

[embedplusvideo height=”343″ width=”560″ standard=”http://www.youtube.com/v/NUHQpCM7yyY?fs=1″ vars=”ytid=NUHQpCM7yyY&width=560&height=343&start=&stop=&rs=w&hd=0&autoplay=0&react=1&chapters=&notes=” id=”ep1005″ /]

At the VMAs, Kanye West thinks Taylor Swift is completely undeserved of her award – so he takes to the stage to voice his opinions. Chump!

10. Mariah Carey

[embedplusvideo height=”343″ width=”560″ standard=”http://www.youtube.com/v/sleaSKmd5Js?fs=1″ vars=”ytid=sleaSKmd5Js&width=560&height=343&start=&stop=&rs=w&hd=0&autoplay=0&react=1&chapters=&notes=” id=”ep2677″ /]

At this award show, Mariah Carey is absolutely off her rocker – hitting the martinis pretty hard. We all love a girl who can drink!

As you can see, there are plenty of embarrassing moments where musicians have managed to make YouTube gold by doing something stupid on stage. Wherever there’s a performance, there will always be cameras watching there every step…so if you’re going to tread the boards, be aware!
