When most entertainers are trying to make it in show business, they often appear to be normal human beings like you and me, and you will hardly come across any controversial thing about them. However, when they start making millions and fans start fighting to get an autograph from or even a selfie with them, they turn into proud beings that have no regard for human decency.
It's interesting how some celebs will usually develop a thirst for alcohol and drugs when they "make it," the very things that are usually the enemies to their success. Furthermore, these people adopt a culture of letting the filthiest of words out of their mouths, and they seem never to care who's listening or what example they're setting for future generations. The people who engage in these and other despicable acts just because they're rich and famous are the ones were calling trashy.
On the other hand, there are some who become famous and suddenly start having challenges with putting on decent clothing or just any clothing that can hide their parts at all. These celebs who claim they want to "break the internet" by posting revealing photos of themselves online, get into multiple relationships, and start abusing drugs and alcohol just because they can are without a doubt trashy.
At least there's a group of celebrities who, after going through a phase of trashiness, discover it's better to just live a meaningful life. Here are eight celebrities who are super trashy and seven who are cleaning up their act.
15 Trashy: Amber Rose
This list wouldn't be complete if Amber Rose wasn't part of it because unlike most other celebrities here, it seems as if she does her best to be as trashy as she can. She has the attitude, tattoos, and beef with fellow celebrities, just to prove how much of a "bad girl" she is. Amber's choice of clothing is also one of the main reasons she makes it here since it seems as if she tries her best to wear the most outrageous and most revealing clothing out there.
Amber Rose would care less about what you think about her because she's very confident and can literally say anything regardless of how offensive you and I might think it was. Remember the time she was sharing TMI about how she was feeling during her pregnancy and the details of how she and Wiz Khalifa would be intimate when she was nine months pregnant? Case closed.
14 Cleaning Up Their Act: Miley Cyrus
Between 2006 and 2011, Miley Cyrus starred in Disney Channel TV series Hannah Montana, with its success and very high ratings leading to Cyrus becoming a "teen idol." Audiences all over America and beyond loved Miley's role, and parents gladly encouraged their children to look up to Miley Cyrus as a role model.
Towards the end of the series and a few years after, Miley focused more on her music career and went on a number of tours, although she also participated in a few films. Controversies started to follow Miley starting with her 2009 Teen Choice Awards dress code, her 2010 stage performance on Britain's Got Talent, and of course, her 2013 Blurred Lines performance with Robin Thicke at the MTV Music Awards. Following the media frenzy and public uproar, Miley only continued to become even more trashy.
However, Miley is here because she's one of the celebrities here who are deliberately taking an effort to clean up their act. Since her sixth album, Younger Now is decent, we can almost confidently claim she's through with whatever weirdness she was going through, and she's back together with Liam Hemsworth.
13 Trashy: Charlie Sheen
It's funny how Two and a Half Men's Charlie Harper died by stepping in front of a train in Paris, given that the real Charlie Sheen seems to be running his life like someone headed straight for a train wreck. It's such a shame that he rose to the very top of his career and got everything he would have wanted, but his trashy personality brought it all down.
Charlie has done it all; excess alcohol, hard drugs, assault and battery, and lots of inappropriate stuff – and this is just what people know. He's arguably the poster child for what a trashy celebrity looks like. Despite contracting HIV, he has continued to hook up with anyone he can, caring less whether they contract the disease or not. At some point, he even sounded like a madman on a downward spiral to the nuthouse.
12 Cleaning Up Their Act: Kate Upton
Kate Upton is an actress and a model who we all recognize from appearing on the covers of 2012, 2013, and 2017 issues of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. Of course, she made it to those covers because she's beautiful, and her body is amazing.
However, we can't forget about how she became so famous, with one of the ways she attracted our attention being the viral video of the young model dancing to Teach Me How to Dougie, which has well over 5 million views. Most people were more interested in watching specific parts of her body during the dance, and not interested in her dancing skills. She also appeared in another viral video where she was performing the Cat Daddy Dance. In addition, it's hard to forget The Southwest Patty Melt at Carl's Jr. and Hardee's commercial, which was too hot to be played during the Super Bowl. However, in recent times, Upton has been focusing more on her work as a model and as an actress and she's slowly earning everyone's respect beyond just being beautiful.
11 Trashy: Shia LaBeouf
Former Transformers star Shia LaBeouf is probably one of the weirdest guys on this list and his antics are definitely not about to end soon. It's such a shame because he was a Disney darling who came from a very humble background. He went viral for spitting a freestyle rap shirtless and declaring himself the next Tupac only to be called out by MC Pri The Honey Dark of the Anomalies for plagiarism. He later plagiarized Daniel Clowe, Nick Clegg, and other artists.
Shia LaBeouf has had his share of trashy drama from fighting outside clubs, chasing a homeless man for French fries, threatening a neighbor with a knife, trespassing, and urinating on a restaurant wall in Sherman Oaks. He also caused disturbance during a studio 54 performance of Cabaret where he slapped people on the head and spat on them. We also won't forget the time he wore a paper bag on his head during a Berlin Film Festival with the words "I am not famous anymore" written on it.
10 Cleaning Up Their Act: Ariana Grande
Back before 2008, Ariana Grande was just another girl from Florida, who loved performing in the children's theater and singing. Her career started to take off when she performed in the musical 13, on Broadway and then later played the role of Cat Valentine in Victorious and its spinoff Sam & Cat on Nickelodeon. She began her music career in 2011 but released her first album Yours Truly in 2013, a successful album, which made critics start to compare her vocal range to Mariah Carey's, a huge compliment at the time.
However, as her fame and success grew, Ariana developed a reputation for being a high maintenance diva. A reception video caught her claiming how much she hated Americans and licking doughnuts in a shop that were on display, and was also recorded saying she hoped all her fans would die. However, she has issued a number of apologies for her rude behavior on several occasions and truly seems to have reformed. She has won numerous awards, supported many charities, and was one of Time's 100 most influential people in the world in 2016.
9 Trashy: Amanda Bynes
Amanda Bynes was a sweet and promising child star on the path to becoming a Hollywood success before her life took a nosedive. The former actress and child model started her downward spiral in 2011 when she was charged with a DUI. She was reprimanded and put on a three-year probation, which apparently didn't work.
Since then she has caused enough chaos including lighting a fire in a strangers driveway, smoking marijuana on camera, hurling a bong out her window into the street, hurling a water pipe from the 36th floor, and threatening pedestrians lives. Her trashy dress code and social media rants aren't admirable either. She continues to post raunchy tweets and trashy photos on social media; she pierced her cheeks and wears ratty wigs. There have been rumors she had to be institutionalized on mental grounds, but whatever the real story is, we have yet to see if she will reform.
8 Cleaning Up Their Act: Snooki
Although most people only know her as Snooki, her real name is Nicole Elizabeth LaValle. Snooki is famous for being a reality television personality, although she's still a great dancer, author, and professional wrestler. Most people got to know about her when she was part of Jersey Shore, an MTV reality show we give credit for winning her a spot on this list. After Jersey Shore, she starred in its spinoff Snooki & JWoww, which was on-air for four seasons, until 2015.
Snooki always appeared to party hard and drink hard as a reality television personality, an image that brought out her trashiness. In real life, Snooki wasn't always on the right side of the law, since she arrested at one time for disorderly conduct, criminal annoyance, and disturbing the peace. The judge referred to her as a "Lindsay Lohan wannabe," a character no one would be too happy being associated with. She was also taken into custody after the car she was driving collided with a police car. In recent times, Snooki has been cleaning up her act and is heading in the right direction.
7 Trashy: Nicki Minaj
Nicki Minaj might be one of the trashiest musicians in the world right now. The fact that she switched a few letters in her original name Tanya Maraj to come up with the name Nicki Minaj with the intention of making it sound dirty is just low. Her outrageous display of herself 24/7 is proof of why she deserves to be on this list.
Her shocking winter 2017 Paper magazine cover has broken the internet for being the trashiest magazine cover of the year. She has no regard for her industry peers; she keeps trash talking industry influences like Lil' Kim by calling her old and deaf. She even had the guts to ride on the success of Susan G. Komen's Pink Friday cancer awareness campaign by pretending to care about breast cancer just before dropping her album Pink Friday. Some sources claim she even fakes being interested in women just to attract controversy and sell records.
6 Cleaning Up Their Act: Justin Bieber
Justin Bieber is one of the most successful musicians today, with over 140 million album and singles sales worldwide. However, Bieber has also attracted a huge number of haters, since his song Baby has more than 7.8 million dislikes, making it the most disliked video on YouTube, and six of his other videos make it to the list of the top 40 most disliked videos on YouTube.
Furthermore, Bieber has a reputation of being a terrible human being, since he has arrived late for his own concert, threatened to break a fan's phone during a concert, and walked off stage during a performance. He has also appeared to spit on fans from a balcony, mooned fans, mishandled photographers, and did other cruel and weird things. The Chinese government even banned him from performing there, claiming he was too controversial and badly behaved.
However, Bieber seems to be cleaning up his act in the recent past, since he has been close to his pastor who has been helping him to act like the Christian he professes to be. It also seems like getting back with Selena Gomez is keeping him in check.
5 Trashy: Lindsay Lohan
From being the it girl to being a jailbird, Lindsay Lohan has seen it all. The fallen star is only 31 years of age but she could easily pass for a 40-year-old. It's hard to believe she was once a promising pre-teen actress since she appears to be well on the way to self-destruction.
Lindsay Lohan has been arrested for DUIs so many times we've lost track. Her rock bottom moment was when she caused a four-car accident pile-up, which caused worldwide uproar against her. Her problems with the law, drug addiction, and bad attitude gave rise to the uncontrollable celebrity we have today.
She has been caught on camera in a drab outfit, crappy makeup, and with drug-corroded teeth. Her time in jail seems to have steered her for the better but we have yet to see results. A short while back, she was defending Harvey Weinstein; we can't wait to see where this will end up.
4 Trashy: Kanye West
The king of rants and celebrity feuds Kanye West is on this list because first, he is Kim Kardashian's husband, and he too has had his share of drama over the years. Although he is a very successful musician and he has millions of followers who love his music, he's too trashy. He made a world spectacle when he interrupted Taylor Swift during her speech at the VMAs, where he claimed Beyoncé deserved the award instead.
Kanye has been unraveling his trashy drama bit by bit by attacking people online with his tweets. He is always starting some beef with other artists, the media, his exes, and anyone who rubs him the wrong way. He is also famous for trash talking anybody who competes with him on his music and fashion. He later found a new career path in fashion, which has received criticism from numerous people and viewed as a joke by fashion gurus.
3 Cleaning Up Their Act: Eminem
Eminem is without a doubt one of the greatest rappers in present time. In the 2000s, he was the best-selling artist in the United States and has sold over 47.4 million albums and 42 million tracks. Worldwide, Eminem has sold over 172 million albums, making him the sixth-best-selling artist in the United States, the best-selling hip-hop artist, and one of the world's best-selling artists. People have referred to him as the King of Hip-Hop, a title that fits well with his skill.
Although Eminem is extremely successful, for a very long time he was one of the trashiest celebrity rappers, judging by the content of his music, the insults he hurled at his mother in his music, and his conduct. Many people have sued Eminem on numerous occasions, and in all those cases it was clear just how much of a terrible person he was. Eminem was also addicted to prescription drugs and began to abuse drugs, which almost claimed his life.
We can claim that Eminem began cleaning up his act a few years ago, even attending church for a while and seeking help from a rehabilitation counsellor. Although with his new album Revival his lyrics haven't changed much, we can't compare how cool he has been the last couple of years with how he used to be.
2 Trashy: Kim Kardashian
It's not a surprise that Kim Kardashian makes it on this list since some people might argue she only became famous because a private tape starring her and Ray J went viral. All she appears to care about is fame and she'll do anything to achieve it. Some people claim she's overrated, has no talent, and she's only married to Kanye West to gain even more fame.
Given that Kim Kardashian is now a mother, the least you would expect from her to show a bit of decency, right? On the contrary, she continues to wear ridiculous clothing, she poses for trashy shoots and even says the worst of things on camera.
Kim keeps claiming she's a natural beauty but her overdone enhancements and gallons of makeup beg to differ. She's not an example any decent mother would want her child to emulate, and although she has millions of diehard fans, she needs to turn over a new leaf and work on her overall image.
1 Cleaning Up Their Act: Kate Moss
Kate Moss used to be one of the most successful models in the mid-1990s and has continued to be famous even today. However, one of the reasons her name continued to be in the media for years, not related to modelling, was her drug use and party lifestyle. The 2005 drug allegations she was facing led to a number of fashion campaigns dropping her.
Some of the reasons Kate made it to this list include the number of times she posed in the buff for photo shoots, and her relationship with Peter Doherty, which she once admitted she knew was bad but stayed anyway. Kate has tried turning over a new leaf on several occasions, and it seems like she's finally made it. We don’t hear much about her previous negative behavior anymore because she's now clean.
