In the celebrity world, one minor blunder is all it takes to set media outlets wheels spinning. Be it an affair, a leaked photo, or something as simple as a wardrobe malfunction, major websites and magazine seize each and every opportunity that is presented to them. Each and every person in the world faces scrutiny in their day-to-day lives. Be it the car we drive, clothes we wear, or food we eat, someone always has something to say about what we do. These voices grow deafeningly loud when we make a major mistake that is recognized by those that are closest to us. The problem that celebrities face is that their blunders are on display for the citizens of the world to feast on.
With her recent wardrobe malfunction, Chrissy Teigen had the attention of the world, and the picture was blasted everywhere. Fortunately, Chrissy was a good sport about it all, and has even poked some fun at herself. While everyone handles situations differently, some of the people on the list have been able to use such blunders as a stepping stone for a lucrative career. Being in a situation that is revealed to the world can't be easy, and these people have all shared a moment with us all. One thing is for certain; the names on the list, much like ourselves, have had moments that have completely flipped their world upside down. While I'm sure this list could reach unfathomable numbers, I've narrowed down to 15 to make it a bit easier for you all to digest.
15 Paris Hilton - 1 Night In Paris
In the early 2000s Paris Hilton was one of the biggest and most popular celebrity figures on the planet. If for some reason you have never heard of her, one look at her last name may bring back memories of your most recent hotel stay on your latest trip to Disneyland. With more money than she can count and with loads of catchphrases, Paris Hilton was all the rage, and you were hard pressed to go anywhere without seeing her face.
14 Pete Wentz - Photo Leak
2005 was one heck of a year. On one hand, I was gearing up to finish a wretched four years of high school. On the other hand, Fall Out Boy released their album From Under the Cork Tree which was chocked full of massive radio hits that made the band stars. As bassist and lead lyricist for the band, Pete Wentz quickly became a public figure, and his newly found fame came with a price.
13 Kristen Stewart - Affair Photos Surface
At just 26 years old, Kristen Stewart has put together quite an impressive career. She's perhaps best known for her work in the Twilight Saga film series, which was a cultural phenomenon and made an incredible amount of money. Stewart also starred in Snow White & the Huntsman, and portrayed rock legend Joan Jett in The Runaways. While maintaining an under-the-radar romance with her costar Robert Pattinson, Stewart would find herself in a compromising position.
12 Kate Upton - Photo Leak
At the age of 18, Kate Upton graced the cover of the legendary Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, and hasn't looked back ever since. The blonde bombshell has spent the last several years carving out a career that encompasses both modelling and acting, and has even roped herself one hell of an athlete for a boyfriend. Her short career has been really impressive, and her acting in 2014's The Other Woman was exceptional. In 2017, Upton will be featured in the movie The Masterpiece, which is being directed by none other than James Franco.
11 Chrissy Teigen - Wardrobe Malfunction
As a model who has busted through into the mainstream, Chrissy Teigen is as popular as anyone can hope to be in the entertainment industry. Her modelling career has been met with success after success, and her television work has brought her beauty into households around the world. Currently, Teigen is the co-host of Spike TV's Lip Sync Battle which might be one of the funniest and most ridiculous shows on television. It's evident that Teigen loves her job, and she seems to have a great time watching her fellow celebrities do the unthinkable.
10 Vince Neil - Leaked Tape
Since their inception in the 1980s, Motley Crue has been one of the biggest bands of their era. They were a band that had the looks that kill, the reputation of being too fast for love, and stories that would make even the lowest of degenerates blush. Through it all (save for a brief and forgettable moment), Vince Neil manned singing duties for the quartet, and his voice is known by millions around the world. If you've ever had the pleasure of reading their collective autobiography The Dirt, I'm sure you've dreamt of the life that these men were crazy enough to have.
9 Janet Jackson - Super Bowl XXXVIII
The Jackson family have been in the limelight since the 1960s, but, it was the 1980s that brought young sister Janet (or Miss Jackson if you're nasty) to the forefront, and set her on her own path to superstardom. Her album Janet Jackson's Rhythm Nation 1814 was a massive success, and would be certified platinum by the RIAA. Her success in both music and film would continue into the 1990s and beyond, and Janet has even released an album as recently as 2015.
8 Tara Reid - Red Carpet Wardrobe Malfunction
The late 1990s gave rise to both the Y2K scare, and to Tara Reid's acting career. In back-to-back years, Tara Reid found herself in some very successful movies, including: The Big Lebowski, Urban Legend, Cruel Intentions, and American Pie. Four wildly successful films in a span of two years has the ability to make instant celebrities, and Tara Reid's star burned brightly in the waning millennium. The onset of the new millennium saw Reid continuing her success, starring in both American Pie 2, and in Van Wilder. As the decade would continue, however, Reid slowing began to disappear, and hits were few and far between.
7 Brett Favre - Sexting Scandal
Throughout the history of the NFL, very few players are as revered and respected as Brett Favre. As one of the greatest quarterbacks to grace a football field, Favre's signature #4 could be seen countrywide as seemingly every kid and high school player wanted to be like Brett. At the conclusion of his career, Favre held nearly every recognizable passing record, had a Super Bowl ring, and was a 3-time NFL MVP recipient. His statistics are astounding, and the impact that he's had on the game continues to be felt years after his retirement.
6 Farrah Abraham - Tape Leak Scandal
Reality television rarely produces genuine superstars, and Farrah Abraham is a perfect example of this. While some are able to make themselves familiar in Hollywood circles and even begin a career afterwards, Abraham would not be so lucky. The 25-year-old originally rose to relevance after appearing on the show Teen Mom which is an MTV show that's title is a pretty good indication of what the show is about. Though she has tried to remain relevant, Abraham has had a rough go of things in Hollywood, and serves as more of a punchline.
5 Tommy Lee and Pamela Anderson - Another Leaked Tape
Earlier in this article, I discussed the lead singer of the band Motley Crue, and his adventures in leaked sex tapes. I also mentioned that his drummer would be victim of the same folly and would appear on this list. Well my friends, you needn't wait any longer, because it's finally time to discuss what may be the most famous leaked sex tape of all-time. He was the drummer of Motley Crue, and she was a Baywatch beauty that had every man in the 1990s wishing they'd nearly drowned at the beach.
4 Tiger Woods - Infidelity
Tiger Woods place in the pantheon of golf greats is undeniable, even though it's clear that he's not the athlete that he once was. For years, Woods was the face of the sport, and he appeared to be on his way to shattering every major golf record in the sport's history. He won countless titles, was showered with awards, and was the face of some truly fun video games. He was the face of numerous companies, and was even parodied on Chappelle's Show. Tiger Woods was everywhere at the height of his career, and his pockets would be forever thankful.
3 Jennifer Lawrence - Leaked Photos
As the highest-paid actress in Hollywood, Jennifer Lawrence is blazing a rather unique trail that is sure to leave an incredible legacy. She has been the face of two majorly successful film franchises, and already has an Academy Award win to her name. Her films have made incredible amounts of money, and upcoming film Passengers appears to be heading for success as well. Her talent is undeniable, and I personally look forward to seeing her career continue to progress through the years.
2 Kim Kardashian - It All Started With The Tape
If I'm being completely honest here, I'm not really sure what Kim Kardashian does for a living. I've heard that she has a reality show, and for some reason, she is everywhere. She is featured in magazines, radios, commercials, and seemingly everything in between. She has been in numerous high-profile relationships, and her name, along with her sister's names, always seems to be on the tip of the media's tongue. To her credit, she's the most famous person on the planet (for no apparent reason), and has made enough money to feed to city of Oakland for a year.
1 Bill Clinton - The Monica Lewinsky Affair
Holding the title of President of the United States makes you one of the most powerful people in the world (though Congress is where the power lies), and having that much power means that being anything less than perfect will leave over 300 million United States citizens shaking their heads. While there have been a number of controversies in the country's history, we have had one president whose scandalous behavior may in fact be the most famous moment of the 1990s.
President Bill Clinton was caught having an affair with then white house intern Monica Lewinsky, and people were calling for the man's head. President Clinton was a married man with a daughter, and the world was in shock when the evidence surfaced. Lewinsky became a household name, and President Clinton's term would be one for the history books. So, let's all sit back, enjoy a cigar, and have a laugh at a truly crazy moment in history.
