People love to talk more than others. Many celebrities have no cue or social skills when they go on their rants. These rants affect others and do not improve on the image of the person. Here are just 10 people who I think have won the shut up award.
1. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad:
This man is probably one of the most insane men still living on the face of this earth. He is also one of the most feared with his nuclear program in Iran. One thing that can be said about him is his excessive talks about trying to bring down other people’s beliefs. He’s expressed his opinion about wiping Israel off the map, he’s also tried to get rid of Bush when he was in office. In a speech at the UN headquarters he ranted on about Israel and anti-Semitic and racist comments. The man should be more tolerant of others and should not repress the rights of people inside his country
2. Bobby Brown:
Bobby Brown was one of the brightest R&B Stars in the late 1980s and 1990s. He was popular for his new jacket groove as well as his passion for classic soul, urban synth-funk and hip hop. As things began to slow down, the momentum shifted to Bell Biv Devoe, Johnny Gill and other new faces.
In 1992, he married superstar Whitney Houston. The two would continue to have a 15-year tumultuous and scandal filled marriage. In 1995, Brown was arrested after a fight in a nightclub. In the next months, he was charged with battery after kicking a hotel security guard. He would check himself into the Betty Ford center right after to treat a drug addiction.
The downward spiral did not stop there. He wrecked his wife’s car after found speeding in Florida with blood-alcohol levels twice the legal limit. The continuous record of addiction, defying bail continued into the 2000s. Brown served 75 days in jail.
Despite divorcing in 2007, he and Whitney Houston remained friends. One thing I need to cite is his behaviour during her funeral and right after. He reportedly left the funeral because he did not agree with how it was run. He also made a statement blaming Houston for his drug addiction.
3. Roseanne Barr:
Personal laundry should not be put on the internet. This TV star not only mocked the US national anthem, but also accused her parents of abuse in public. In 2006, she traveled to Lebanon to support the country against Israel. Now she has a show called Roseanne’s nuts. My personal opinion is that this publicity stint.
On a different note, who can forget how she treated her husband Tom Arnold. After a disastrous divorce, she wrote him off the show and got him abducted by aliens. Personal laundry should not be made public willingly.
4. Mel Gibson:
This man is a renowned film star, director and producer and a devoted Traditionalist catholic. He has had success in many films, most notably Braveheart and the Patriot. The Patriot, Chicken Run and What Women Want each grossed at over $100 million.
Despite the success, Gibson is known to be a prankster and a racist. He has done shocking things that outrage people. In 1991, he made a derogatory statement on El Pais against homosexuals. His film the Passion of Christ sparked a debate over anti-sematic images. Most of all, he’s been charged with domestic violence and be accused of sexism.
On July 28, 2006, Gibson was stopped for speeding where he was found in possession of alcohol. He told the arresting officer that his life was over and made a comment telling the Jews to f*** off. He blames them for all the wars in the world. His excuse was “a moment of insanity”.
5. Johnny Depp:
He was once quoted as saying “America is like a dumb puppy…a broken toy…Disneyland…You wouldn’t want to live there…” Why is he living there then? Unless he provided with a good reason, he should keep his trap closed.
6. Kanye West:
Kanye West may be one of the most respected hip hop and rap singers and producers in America. He rose to fame when initially recognized for his contribution to Jay-Z’s album, The Blue Print.
Despite the popularity, he is also known to be one of the celebrities who talks too much. He made unnecessary comments that were unwarranted, including the statement that George W. Bush does not care about Blacks. He speaks his mind before he even thinks of the repercussions.
7. Nicki Minaj:
This is another star who posts dirty laundry online to see. She is quite outspoken about her troubled past and her uber-popular songs. It’s not enough that she wears outrageous clothes; she needs to constantly talk about herself.
8. Rachel Reilly:
I do not know about you, but I could not stand Rachel Reilly from Big Brother from season 12 and 13. Not only did she deserve to win season 13, but she gets my vote for being the best drama queen. She cried about everything. I give my ultimate condolences to Brendon who has an undying love for this drama queen. Now she joins Amazing Race. More drama!
9. Lady Gaga:
Lady Gaga is the new face of pop. Influenced by David Bowie, Michael Jackson, Madonna and Queen, she is flamboyant. She has won 5 Grammy Awards and 13 MTV Video Music Awards. She ranked 4th on VH1’s List of 100 Greatest Women in Music.
However, like others on the list she talks too much, especially about herself. We do not need to know whether she has a penis or not. I still do not understand why she did a whole video, 10 minutes long “Marry the Night Away”.
They drive us crazy beyond our imagination. They call when we are busy; they won’t stop harassing us even though we asked them not to call us. They do not believe in leaving people alone when they are asked to.
