It is safe to say that celebrities are used to having adoring fans, and they do not shy away from the praises that come from those fans, especially when it is in the public eye. However, when the adoration and praises turn violent it raises some eyebrows; mainly from the celebs themselves. There have been several instances of fans physically getting way too close to some of their favorite celebrities. Taylor Swift was handed a love letter of sorts, Emma Bunton was yanked into a security bar, Lady Gaga was prayed to (the fan was literally on her knees praying to Gaga), Harry Styles was nearly pulled off stage and Nicki Minaj was manhandled. These are just a few of the celebrities who fell victim to raving fans. Some of these incidents can be humorous though, like Demi Lovato’s group hug gone wrong, Justin Bieber’s toppling piano and to a lesser extent, Avril Lavigne’s frightened reaction to a lunging fan. Although security is usually there to serve and protect, they do not always make it to the celebrity before the fan does, and when they don’t, some pretty interesting things take place. All of these incidents play out like an episode of MTV’s Fanatic, where a lot of people are left confused and the celebrities themselves are left feeling a little violated. Here is a list of 16 over excited fans that somehow got passed security.
16 Snoop Dogg
Snoop Dogg or Snoop Lion, as he likes to be called, took a hit on stage while performing the classic single, "Gin and Juice". We all know Snoop rolls with a large crew that includes; friends, fellow artists and hype men, so when a fan ran up on Snoop and basically jumped on his back while he rapped and sipped (probably gin and juice) from his cup, he was obliterated. The fan took a beat down from almost everyone on stage while Snoop continued to perform and simply not give a damn. He kept it cool as usual; he was probably just really really high.
15 Nicki Minaj
14 Kid Cudi
Kid Cudi is not one to mess with; during a 2010 performance at an outdoor concert in Ohio, a fan ran on stage and jumped on Cudi. His security quickly pushed the guy off stage and Cudi tried hard to continue his performance. However, the hood in him took over and he decided to deal with the fan himself. Cudi jumped off stage and into the crowd of crazy fans to find his attacker, when he did find him, he threw a few punches and his security had to hold him back. When will people learn that rappers who claim to come from the hood will always fight you back?
13 50 Cent
12 Emma Bunton
Baby Spice Emma Bunton has had her fair share of run-ins with over excited fans, but the worst one by far would be when she got pulled into a metal barrier. Let’s back up; during an appearance on a talk show, the girls were greeting their fans as they made their way to the stage. When Emma reached out to one fan, he viciously pulled her in and grabbed her by the neck and pretty much refused to let go. She had to be pulled out by her band mates and compose herself. Emma was rightfully shocked and even a little scared; we wonder if she'll ever put her hand out like that again.
11 Taylor Swift
10 Justin Bieber
9 Robbie Williams
8 Avril Lavigne
7 Lil’ Wayne
Rapper Lil’ Wayne was ending a show when a fan randomly ran up on stage, stopped dead in his tracks and put his arms out as if to say ‘what up Wayne’. The shocked rapper just kind of stood there and out from the right side of the stage came his security who tackled the poor fan before he could make another move. The tackle was pretty severe and in the video you can hear when the fan hits the ground. Wayne simply looked at his audience and said “you don’t want that to happen to you”. Those are some wise words from the hip hop artist.
6 Demi Lovato
5 Britney Spears
4 Miley Cyrus
During a concert in Melbourne in 2011, Miley Cyrus was performing her hit song “The Climb”, when she was rushed on stage by a fan. He came out of nowhere, ran up beside Miley and put his arm around her, it even took a few seconds for her to realize what was going on and by the time she did, security was there to tackle him and whisk her away. Miley was so frightened that she left the stage, but before she did, she was heard saying “no, no” followed by “Oh my god”. Who wouldn't be freaked out by someone running up and grabbing them from behind?
3 Keri Hilson
1 Tim McGraw
The female fans at Tim McGraw’s concerts are insane; during a performance in 2014, Tim was man-handled by an over excited fan who tried to rip his pants off. Unfortunately for the fan, Tim's initial reaction was to smack the hell out of her. Tim stopped singing and swatted at the fan before she was dragged away kicking and screaming by security. This was not the first time that he had been attacked by a fan. During a concert with his wife Faith Hill, Tim had his man parts grabbed by a fan and Faith flipped out; she stopped the concert to cuss the girl out. Tim has also had his ring ripped off his hand by a fan; he stopped the whole concert and repeatedly asked for his ring back. This man needs to stop letting his fans get too close to him.
