You might wonder what makes one celebrity tackier than another, but on this list, all wacky celebrity moments are created equal. This list was compiled by looking at celebrities who have exhibited tastelessly bad behavior in the last few years.
10) Courtney Love
While most might believe that Courtney Love has never really been the ideal role model for her child Frances, the rock star hit rock bottom when she was investigated for supposedly stealing money from her daughter’s trust fund in late 2009. Once married to alt rock legend Kurt Cobain, Love seems to be spiraling even further downward with every poor decision she makes in regards to her daughter. She has since lost all legal control of Frances, after a court ruled Love incapable of raising her daughter. Love is currently working with her recently reunited band, Hole.
9) Kanye West
Who could forget Kanye West’s infamous stage-crashing at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards? When he rushed up during Taylor Swift’s acceptance speech for Best Video of the Year, he rudely displayed a complete lack of class. As a result of his outburst, his tour with Lady Gaga was called off, and President Obama even slipped and called West a nasty name. The never married rapper is currently working on a new album.
8) Charlie Sheen
The star of the hit TV show Two and a Half Men, Charlie Sheen was charged with 3rd Degree Assault against his wife, Brooke Mueller, in December 2009. Sheen is no stranger to accusations of domestic violence; in 2005, his then-wife actress Denise Richards filed reports that he threatened her with violence. To make matters worse, he exhibited more bizarre behavior recently by shaving off all his hair and obsessing about Depends underwear at a CVS store. He is now in contract negotiations with the producers of Two and a Half Men.
7) Britney Spears
It’s difficult to think of a more visible celebrity trainwreck than pop princess Britney Spears. She’s engaged in her share of tacky behavior over the years; there are simply too many moments to single out just one. From her late-night head shaving to her very public custody battle with ex-husband Kevin Federline over their children, Britney Spears has done some crazy things. Twice married, Spears is now dating her much older manager, Jason Trawick.
6) Amy Winehouse
On December 19, 2009, British singer Amy Winehouse was arrested for disrupting a performance of “Cinderella” in which an audience of children heard her scream obscenities at the actors. When asked to move, she attacked the theater manager and subsequently ended up at the police station. In and out of rehab for various reasons, Winehouse has made some pretty tacky decisions. She is currently working on an upcoming album.
5) Jon Gosselin
The reality TV star dad is probably best known for being the dad of eight children and the ex-husband of Kate Gosselin. He also made some tacky decisions by cheating on his wife and engaging in a highly publicized divorce and custody battle. Jon has had several romantic relationships after his marriage broke apart, and he acts more like a teenager than a responsible adult. He is currently looking for a job.
4) Lindsay Lohan
Once a promising young actress, Lindsay Lohan now has trouble even getting cast in roles because of her reputation. Struggling with problems of substance abuse at a disturbingly young age, Lohan spends more time partying than doing something productive. Hounded by paparazzi, her antics have made headlines on nearly every tabloid magazine. Lohan is now promoting her new clothing line.
3) Tila Tequila
Famous for being a reality TV show star and the most popular MySpace artist, Tila Tequila doesn’t display much class. One of the most obvious examples of this is her lack of mourning over the death of her fiancée, heiress Casey Johnson. Just days after the death, Tequila showed no anguish at all. Most of her actions are considered tacky and self-serving.
2) Jesse James
Known now as the most hated man in America, motorcycle builder Jesse James is the estranged husband of actress Sandra Bullock. He lost a great deal of his fan base when it was revealed that he had numerous affairs while still married to Bullock. His poor judgment has currently landed him in rehab for various addictions.
1) Heidi Montag/Spencer Pratt
Nicknamed “Speidi,” this married couple were once the stars of the reality TV show, The Hills. Spencer seems perfectly happy annoy other people with his outrageous and insensitive comments, and Heidi has made recent headlines for an abundance of plastic surgeries. They seem mostly interested in fame, and they have no problem doing all that they can to achieve that goal.
