Celebrities and scandals always come hand in hand — we all make mistakes, but when you’re in the public eye, your mess ups are magnified tenfold. These days, when celeb news is available 24/7, everyone wants to become a journalist and everyone’s fighting for their 15 clicks of fame. But there will always be the ones who’d rather the world forgot their dirty deeds. And sometimes the world does forget. Or does it?
20. Zayn Malik
As if leaving One Direction at the peak of their success wasn’t scandalous enough, Zayn continued to outrage fans and media as a solo artist. He tweeted producer Naughty Boy “You fat joke stop pretending we’re friends no one knows you” after Boy apparently leaked Zayn’s music video. Even without Naught Boy’s production the album proved be a success.
19. Ariana Grande
Ariana Grande may have been a perfectly clean popstar for years, but in 2014 she showed us her darker side when she was heard saying, “I hope they all fucking die,” after a meet-and-greet with fans. Grande quickly took it to Twitter to proclaim these allegations false. It didn’t stop there: In 2015 she was caught on-camera licking donuts and saying she “hates America.” None of that seemed to bother her fanbase as she keeps on setting the charts on fire.
A lot of celebrities become victims of their own naughty ways and end up having their naked photos leaked online. Diplo went even further when he posted a photo of his manhood on both twitter and Instagram mentioning that he had “a small dic but I make up for it with girth and my great music… and my camaro.” He also tweeted that Taylor Swift needs a Kickstart-sponsored booty. Why can’t they leave Tay-Tay alone?!
