Celebrities are always in the public eye, so they’d inevitably do something silly or ungraceful someday. They’re humans, after all, so they can’t maintain that veneer of perfection and confidence every time. They might phrase something wrong in an interview, or slip on the red carpet. In this age of the internet, where everyone has a camera in their pockets, people don’t fail to capture them. Here are ten such moments when celebrities messed up.
1. Bow Wow Busted
The rapper formerly known as ‘Lil Bow Wow’ once posted a picture on Instagram of a luxury car parked on an airport tarmac in front of a private plane. He captioned it: “Travel Day. NYC press run for Growing Up Hip Hop. Let’s go.” The picture gave the impression that he was flying privately at DeKalb Peachtree Airport in Georgia. But pictures from netizens revealed later that he was on a standard commercial flight at the same time he made the post. The picture he posted was also traced to a stock photo of a limousine company miles away from his take-off point.
2. No One Cares
In 2014, Rita Ora posted on X (formerly known as Twitter) saying that if her tweet got 100,000 retweets, she’d drop her new song. When the tweet only gathered 1,381 retweets and it was apparent it would never hit 100k, she came back to tweet, “By the way, my Twitter got hacked somebody is threatening to release new music I’ve worked really hard on. Nothing comes out until I’m ready.” Netizens had a good laugh at the tweets and said she should have just left it at the first one because the second made it worse.
3. Woody Allen Loves Them All
In the 2017 My Generation documentary, Woody Allen tried to make Twiggy look dumb and vain by asking who her favorite philosopher was. She deflected the question and posed it back at him, asking, “Who’s yours?” He stumbled and then said, “I like them all.” When she pressed him further, asking for specifics, he tried to change the subject. Woody couldn’t have loved all philosophers because they’re philosophers; you can’t love them all.
4. Liar Ellen
On her show, Ellen DeGeneres once tried to make Dakota Johnson feel guilty for not inviting Ellen to her birthday party. Dakota and her producer confirmed that Ellen was actually invited to the party and just didn’t bother showing up, calling Ellen a liar in front of her audience.
5. Ellen Again
In another interview on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Ellen kept asking Zach Effron and Taylor Swift if they were dating. When Taylor revealed she just taught Zach how to play the guitar, Ellen asked that they play on the show. Right there, Zach and Taylor made up a song about how Ellen likes to ask weird questions and how she’s a horrible person. Ellen sat through it, looking like she wanted to throttle them.
6. Piers Morgan being Pierced
Piers Morgan was left red-faced when he tried to embarrass Love Island contestant Hayley Hughes by asking her questions like if she knew Pythagoras’ theorem. When the question was thrown back at him, he mixed up the answer with the mathematical constant, pi, embarrassing himself instead.
A journalist approached Hailey Bieber, asking her a question about her boyfriend, but the problem was he was calling her Gigi, mistaking her for Gigi Hadid. Hailey clarified that she wasn’t Gigi, then the person, getting further confused, said, “Bella?” asking if she was Bella Hadid, Gigi’s sister.
8. Polite Dismissal
At Elton John’s AIDS Foundation Oscar Party in 2022, Caitlyn Jenner tried to get familiar with Lady Gaga, who didn’t want to talk with her. Caitlyn wanted to make it look like she knew Gaga well and would regularly see her at Starbucks in Malibu. But Gaga politely shut down the conversation by telling Caitlyn that she “Changed baristas.” The face she made when she commented, looking away from Caitlyn, was subtle. But netizens picked it up, and the video went viral online.
9. Me, Paul
Jay-Z looked embarrassed when someone recording him on camera as he walked past with Beyonce and Blue Ivy asked who he was. Jay-Z turned to look at the guy, then asked him back, “Who are you?” The guy’s response of “Me, Paul” in a funny tone was hilarious and went viral because Jay-Z was not expecting the person to be that confident.
10. Scream For What
A tweet once went viral where someone said they were on an early flight with Ne-Yo, and he looked at them and said, “Don’t scream.” But the person looked back at him and said, “Scream for what?” Netizens confirmed that the exchange was likely to happen since Ne-Yo was often full of himself; he thought everyone wanted to scream when they saw him.
