Celebrities work all of their lives at their particular craft in order to garner fame and fortune. When it comes to auditions, this is the chance to shine and hopefully get the job that will launch your career. For the following celebrities, they had a few twists when they tried to get a job. Some people use their position in order to put you in a position that you do not want to be in. Let’s take a look at these celebrities who have made it past their horrible ordeal when it came to getting a job.
Tyra Banks is Accused of Working Her Way to the Top
Tyra Banks had her beginnings in the world of modeling and fashion. She has worked her tail off to make it to where she is today. Along with fame comes criticism and a host of other things. It is said by one person that Tyra had to do certain things in order to make it to where she is today.
Karrine Steffans is a well-known model among other things. She is said to be the very best at another thing. What I can say is this: that she has “super” attached to her name, nothing more, and nothing less. Karrine Steffans accused Tyra Banks of doing “favors” when it comes to climbing up the ladder of success.
Courtney Stodden Hooks up with Doug Hutchison
Actress Courtney Stodden began her career as an actress at the tender age of 16. Her sweet sixteen became somewhat of a controversial story as she got into the business because of an actor by the name of Doug Hutchison. Doug Hutchison is a character actor who may not be an A-list celebrity, but he has been associated with one huge controversy that has haunted his career.
Courtney Stodden met Doug Hutchison in an acting class. His career was established as Courtney was just trying to get her foot into the door. Doug ended up marrying Courtney. Doug is 34 years older than Courtney and it is believed that she got her start in show business because of her marriage to Doug.
A Tape Can Make You Famous
Farrah Abraham is a lady who has the look of a super model. She seems to be the perfect fit for any modeling shoot or acting role. Farrah has actually appeared on several reality television series, namely 16 and Pregnant and Teen Mom. Being on these reality television shows has given Farrah some exposure. She has gone on to appear in something other than a reality show.
Farrah would later end up doing another appearance on camera. It is not a reality show, but what she did is real as reality can get. She just happened to appear in an adult themed movie. It just happened to surface somehow. Farrah denied that it was her at first, but she got her foot into the door when she said it was her and even hired the male performing in the film. She sold the tape to Vivid for a million dollars and some rights to the video.
Lil’ Kim Gave a Little to Get a Lot Out of the Music Industry
Lil’ Kim is one famous rapper. She rose to fame during the ’90s in the time after cassettes and compact discs and before mp3 and iPod players. She is from New York, where it is said that the art of hip-hop originated. There are a lot of famous hip-hop artist from New York such as the late Notorious B.I.G. and Method Man just to name a few of them.
How did Lil’ Kim get to the top of the hip-hop industry? There were rumors that she had relations with the Notorious B.I.G. These accusations were proven to be true. Lil’ Kim would later reveal to Wendy Williams that she did indeed have relations with the Notorious B.I.G.
Kendra Wilkinson and the Bunny Hop to the Top
Kendra Wilkinson has done something that a lot of women have not done. That will be revealed in just a second. She is a model, but she has never been a centerfold in Playboy Magazine. She has however made some appearances in the Playboy reality television series known as The Girls Next Door. Kendra Wilkinson certainly seems like the girl next door to some, but she was much more to a certain gentleman wearing a smoking jacket who resides in the mansion.
Kendra Wilkinson revealed on a game show based in the UK that she did some fooling around with Hugh Hefner while she was one of his “girlfriends.”
Susan Sarandon’s Horror Story of Assault
Sometimes things take a turn for the worst. There are several horrible stories that go beyond having relations and are just downright disgusting. Some of these casting couch encounters turn violent and end up turning into physical assaults.
Such was the case of the Oscar-winning actress Susan Sarandon. She was just starting her career when she was literally assaulted by a man. Susan Sarandon revealed the details in the November 2012 issue of Elle. Susan Sarandon told Elle magazine about a casting couch horror story that occurred in New York City. She tells Elle magazine, “I just went into a room, and a guy practically threw me on the desk. It was my early days in New York, and it was really disgusting. It wasn’t like I gave it a second thought. It was so badly done.”
No Fast Trips for Lisa Rinna
Sometimes casting directors need to get things done quickly. When Lisa Rinna first started out a blossoming actress, she could have gone down a certain road that might be bumpy, but it will get you there fast. However, like we’ve seen with some actresses, sometimes the actor in question has no say in the matter. Especially if they’re young.
Actress Lisa Rinna revealed her casting couch horror story to Popeater.com in 2010. Her story goes as follows, “I lost a role on a big TV series because I wouldn’t bend over a chair in a producer’s office for ‘just a [quick one],’” Lisa stated. “‘Just pull your panties down and bend over and the role is yours,’ he said to me.” Ironically, she saw this same producer guy later on in her career and said to him, “I know everyone in this town and if you ever do what you did to me again to anyone else I will tell everyone your dirty secret.”
Steven Seagal Allegedly Tries to Get Fresh with Jenny McCarthy
Jenny McCarthy was here, there, and everywhere in the ’90s. She was known as the perfect example of what an actress and model was. Jenny McCarthy wanted to expand her horizons with an audition for the film Under Siege 2. She probably expected to go to the audition and then leave with the role, but that was not to be.
Jenny McCarthy told Movieline about an incident with actor Steven Seagal. Steven Seagal is known for his action movies, but he seemed interested in another type of action according to Jenny McCarthy. She was ready to read for her role and she states to Movieline, “Well, I’m [McCarthy] ready to read.” She then said Seagal told her: “Stand up, you have to be kind of sexy in the movie and in that dress, I can’t tell.” Jenny said that she stood up and Seagal then said: “Take off your dress.” Jenny then asks Seagal if there was nudity involved for the role and Seagal then said, “No there’s not, or I wouldn’t be here right now.” Jenny ran out of the office crying. Steven Seagal has denied these accusations.
Joan Rivers Tells All About Chelsea Handler’s Rise to Fame
One may not expect Chelsea Handler to have her experience with a casting couch encounter. The late comedienne Joan Rivers was known for dishing out the dirt on the stars of Hollywood. Joan Rivers just happened to have some “dirt” on Chelsea Handler. Dirt is appropriate in this case because what she said about Chelsea Handler is downright dirty.
Joan Rivers by hook or by crook got the scoop on Chelsea Handler when she made statements on how she made her way up the ladder on a Howard Stern broadcast. Joan Rivers said that there was some rolling around involved with Chelsea and a CEO. Chelsea Handler said that she did not care about what Joan Rivers said and did not engage in any rebuttal.
A Change of Pace with Ryan Phillippe
This is a rarity when the casting couch story involves a man. This story is somewhat interesting, although there is some ambiguity involved in this particular story. Ryan Phillippe is a gentleman who just happened to have a casting couch moment that he revealed to Howard Stern back in April 2010.
Ryan Phillippe told Howard Stern about a time when he had a casting couch experience. Ryan Phillippe told Howard Stern that he was 19-years old at the time and he literally had to run out on what he dubbed a “creepy” casting couch session. Ryan did not go into further details, but he said that there are male victims of casting couch horror stories also.
Helen Mirren Spins Around for Michael Winner
Helen Mirren shared her casting couch story on a UK talk show called Richard and Judy. A number of years had past when Helen Mirren had her casting couch experience. She actually revealed this story in 2007, but the incident that she was involved in actually happened in 1964.
Helen Mirren’s casting couch horror story involved director Michael Winner. According to Helen, Michael Winner had her flaunt her body and turn around for him. This was Helen’s account of this casting couch incident: “I was mortified and incredibly angry. I thought it was insulting and sexist, and I don’t think any actress should be treated like that, like a piece of meat, at all.” Michael Winner was asked by The Guardian about this incident and he said, “I don’t remember asking her to turn around, but if I did I wasn’t being serious. I was only doing what the [casting] agent asked me—and for this I get reviled! Helen’s a lovely person, she’s a great actress and I’m a huge fan, but her memory of that moment is a little flawed.”
Hollywood Is “An Overcrowded Brothel” According to Marilyn Monroe
The iconic Marilyn Monroe was associated with sensuality and style back in her day. Even Marilyn Monroe had her share of casting couch stories. She has had more than one casting couch experience. In fact, she has had many casting couch experiences that occurred in Hollywood.
Marilyn Monroe is very open about her casting couch exploits. She did not turn down the “favors” that were offered to her, but she went ahead and took whatever was offered to her. Of course, no one gets something for nothing, and so there was reportedly an exchange of sexual favors including her and producers, actors, and directors. She even referred to Hollywood as “an overcrowded brothel.”
Thandie Newton Does Not Hold Back
Thandie Newton had to tell it like it is. Thandie Newton was actually a teenager when she had her casting couch incident.
Thandie Newton went on CNN in February 2013 and told the world about her casting couch nightmare. She said to CNN, “The director asked me to sit with my legs apart, and the camera was positioned where it could see up my skirt. He asked me to put my leg over the arm of the chair, and before I started my dialogue, think about the character I was supposed to be having the dialogue with and how it felt to be made love to by this person.”
Charlize Theron Was Not Having Any Part of It
When a person is in an unfamiliar environment, they have no choice but to go with their instinct. This is a very natural response in the human psyche and it is very basic but effective. Charlize Theron went with her gut instinct when she had an encounter for a casting session when she was 19 years old.
Charlize Theron was interviewed by OK! Magazine back in 2009 and she revealed to them her casting couch story. She stated, “I thought it was a little odd that the audition was on a Saturday night at his house in Los Angeles, but I thought maybe that was normal. He was in his Hugh Hefner pajamas—I go inside and he’s offering me a drink, and I’m thinking, ‘My God this acting stuff is very relaxed.’ But it soon becomes very clear what the situation was. I was like, ‘Not going to happen! Got the wrong girl, buddy!”
Corey Feldman Reveals His Casting Couch Incident
Corey Feldman felt that he had to let the world know about what goes on behind closed doors when it came to casting in Hollywood. Corey Feldman went on Nightline back in 2011 and revealed what exactly goes on at most casting sessions.
Feldman had this to say to Nightline, “I can tell you that the No. 1 problem in Hollywood was and is and always will be pedophilia. That’s the biggest problem for children in this industry … It’s the big secret.” He went on to say, “I was surrounded by [pedophiles] when I was 14 years old … Didn’t even know it. It wasn’t until I was old enough to realize what they were and what they wanted … till I went, Oh, my God. They were everywhere.”
Megan Fox: It Can Happen to Anyone
Most of the stories about casting couch nightmares have revolved around entertainers that are trying to make it to the top. There are some cases in which an actor or actress who is already established encounters a situation that could very well turn into a casting couch fiasco.
Megan Fox was actually an established actress when she had her casting couch moment. According to a 2009 interview that she had with GQ magazine, she stated, “Any casting-couch I’ve experienced has been since I’ve become famous. It’s really so heartbreaking. Some of these people! Like Hollywood legends. You think you’re going to meet them and you’re so excited, like, ‘I can’t believe this person wants to have a conversation with me,’ and you get there and you realize that’s not what they want, at all. It’s happened a lot this year actually.”
The Casting Couch Could Have Been a Casting Bed for Gwyneth Paltrow
It would seem like Gwyneth Paltrow would have had a very easy time getting a job as an actress. She was born into this business in a literal sense. Her father is producer Bruce Paltrow and her mother is actress Blythe Danner. With this type of connection, one would expect for Gwyneth Paltrow to easily obtain a job as an actress. Appearances can be deceiving.
Gwyneth Paltrow had her casting couch moment when she was just starting her career. In a 2010 interview with Elle magazine, she shares her casting couch nightmare, stating, “When I was just starting out, someone suggested that we finish a meeting in the bedroom. I left. I was pretty shocked. I could see how someone who didn’t know better might worry.”
Lana Del Rey Just Cannot Keep It In
Lana Del Rey is a singer that has something to say. Music is one of the best ways to get something off of your chest and it can be expressed in a variety of ways in a song. She has a song that is sure to tell about her experiences when she was just starting out in the world of singing.
Lana Del Ray’s album Ultraviolence has a song on it that explains her experiences about the casting couch. Let me just say that the song’s title implies that in order to make it to the top, a certain activity has to be done that involves two, or maybe three or more in certain cases, people in some interesting activity.
Rita Ora Goes Around and Comes Around
Rita Ora is another singing sensation on the list. She did not go the Lana Del Ray route and release a song that implies something about getting a job the easy way. Sometimes you just have to tell it like it is when it comes to sitting on the casting couch. Do you remember that she was engaged to Rob Kardashian? Do you know why their relationship ended?
Rita Ora was trying to get ahead in her career. Instead of the long hard way of obtaining success, she went down the easy road. Her relationship with then boyfriend Rob Kardashian ended because she admitted to sleeping with around 20 guys in order to boost her singing career. Rob Kardashian wrote about this on his Twitter page and said that Rita did this to get ahead in her career.
Kim K and Ray J: No Audition Required
Kim Kardashian is one of the most famous celebrities today. Before her rise to fame, she obviously had to start somewhere. You may think that she auditioned for some movie at some casting agency or something along that line would have been the start of her career, but it was not so. Kim Kardashian actually became famous because of a certain kind of tape.
Kim Kardashian was once the girlfriend of singer Ray J. They were filmed having an intimate moment. Their intimate moment video made its way to Vivid Video and the tape sold like hotcakes. This tape is what got Kim Kardashian’s foot into the door and she became famous because of this tape. No audition required!
For 24 Hours, Kelly Clarkson Was Scared For Her Life
If you know how petrifying cancer can be then this will hit close to home. Going to the doctor for a routine checkup isn’t that high on everyone’s list of things they love. Why? Because you may think you are perfectly fine but there is something in the back of your head that keeps you the slightest paranoid. For Kelly Clarkson, that paranoia turned into a reality in 2006.
It was the day of the 2006 Grammys and Kelly Clarkson had the heaviest mind in attendance. “Not many people know this … but I was told that morning that I had cancerous results for something,” she said. “I went the whole day crying. They redid my makeup four times because I was like, ‘Wow, so young.’ I was just completely freaking out.”
No one wants to be trembling with fear on one of the biggest days of their lives. Not only was Clarkson nominated, she was set to perform. That must have a nightmarish feeling, to say the least. Hope came in the form of her winning her first two Grammys for Best Pop Vocal Album and Best Female Pop Vocal Performance.
“Then when I won, I thought, ‘Oh, my God. This is like God giving me one more thing before something horrible happens,’” said Clarkson. From the sounds of things, Clarkson was going through it but the light at the end of the tunnel arrived the next day
What happened next is something that all cancer patients would wish could happen. The day after she won her Grammys and performed her hit song “Because of You” she had learned the diagnosis was just a mistake.
“I was like, ‘You completely ruined my entire [day],’” she laughed. “As a kid watching the Grammys, that was a big dream! It was kind of the worst/greatest day. And the next day was also the worst/greatest day because I wanted to punch someone.” And rightfully so, giving someone the scare of their life on a big day like that is quite ridiculous.
“I was like, ‘Who mixes up results? Why wouldn’t you test again?’ It was very much a roller coaster ride, that day, for me,” said Clarkson. “So, it’s kind of unfortunate, but a lot of the moments got stolen from that mishap. But hey, I didn’t have cancer!”
That is most likely one of the craziest 24 hours a human being can go through. Thinking that you have a life-threatening disease and winning an award you have been dreaming about since you were a kid has bittersweet written all over it.
It takes a certain level of professionalism for someone to stay committed after hearing that news but that is just what Clarkson did accepting her awards and giving a great performance. One can only guess how thankful for life Clarkson has been since that scare. And to those still fighting that battle and were not as fortunate as Clarkson, continue the fight because it can be defeated.
Celebs Who Saved Themselves For Marriage (Or Not)
People decide to “save” themselves, in other words remain “pure,” for lots of reasons. Some do it because of religious, emotional, or just personal reasons. Some do it because they want to protect their health, while others just do it because they want to find the “right” person. It really makes you wonder, though, when a super-attractive star says that they’ve vowed to remain celibate or abstinent. So many questions surround their decision, and then there’s always the inevitable musing… Is their desire to “wait” honest-and-real, or is it just a publicity stunt? Here are all the details about some of the biggest stars who said they were saving themselves.
Angela Simmons Confesses
Angela Simmons is famous as theGrowing Up Hip-Hopstar and a fabulous shoe designer. Her dad is also Run-DMC rap royalty the Rev. Joseph Simmons, which may also explain why she was so vocal about her desire to wait until marriage.
So, when rumors of her pregnancy first surfaced, she denied it of course. There’s only so long that denials will hold up, though. She eventually confessed, saying, “You know, I met the love of my life and we got engaged. And I waited until twenty-eight.” So, the man of her dreams changed everything, and she welcomed Sutton Joseph, her baby boy, last year, and then married Sutton Tennyson.
Carrie Underwood on the Right To Love
Even after her American Idol win, and her subsequent steady-and-sure rise to even bigger stardom, Carrie Underwood had a lot to say about her decision to wait until marriage, and she held fast to her convictions. She says, “I grew up going to church camp and reading my Bible and having different faith books and movies in my life.”
She was abstinent until she married her husband, Mike Fisher, when she was 26-years old. It’s a good thing that she finally found “the right guy.” But, she’s also very vocal about her belief that everyone should have that right: “As a married person myself, I don’t know what it’s like to be told I can’t marry somebody I love, and want to marry. I can’t imagine how that must feel. I definitely think we should all have the right to love, and love publicly, the people that we want to love.”
Donny Osmond – Dad’s Dilemma
Donny Osmond was part of the Osmonds, and he went on to have a bestselling singing career. All-in-all, though, he’s a man of many talents; he’s a singer, songwriter, actor, TV host, dancer, and even author. What draws him to your attention here, though, is his vow to wait until he married.
He says, “I was … when I got married and I would hope that my children, based on my beliefs and what I have taught them, would follow suit.” That appears to be easier to say than to actually ensure that they follow in his footsteps, though. He says, “I am not going to condemn anybody. That’s where religion gets a bad name, when people get holier than thou. We are all human. If my children make a mistake, I want them to know it is all right and they should try harder next time.”
Jordin Sparks & Perfect Sense
Jordin Sparks is famous as an actor, singer and model. You may remember when she auditioned for American Idol, or even when she became the youngest winner (at 17). Along with all the fame, though, she’s also been very vocal about her purity ring, which is a faith-based decision.
If you look at her American Idol biography, you’ll see that she thanks her parents and God for her win. And, about her choice to wait, she explains, “My parents gave me a purity ring and talked to me about waiting until marriage. It wasn’t forced; it just made perfect sense.”
Julianne Hough & Her Lucky Guy
Julianne Hough is one of the infamous beauties of Dancing With The Stars fame, but she’s also now known for her vow of celibacy, based on her Mormon upbringing. As she explained, there was “no drinking, no caffeine, no smoking, no swear words, no R-rated movies.” There were rumors that her relationship with Zach Wilson might have been short-lived because of that little purity clause. Then, with Ryan Seacrest, rumors had it that she was his “beard.”
But, you probably don’t care about all that anymore. After all, she’s been dating NHL star Brooks Laich since 2013, and they announced their engagement in 2015. And, in an interview, he famously raved about her, saying, “She’s a cool, cool gal. She’s just a sweetheart, very loving, very giving. She puts so much great out into the world. I’m a pretty lucky guy.”
Kathie Lee Gifford – The Last One?
You probably know Kathie Lee Gifford as a host on the Today show, right? Well, she’s famous not only for her online prowess, but also because she waited until she was 22, and married to her first husband, Paul Johnson. In her autobiography, she explains: “My lifelong self-consciousness about my body seemed, miraculously, to fade away…”
Gifford said that she met her first husband at a Bible study group. He was the leader of the group. Up until, then, she was certain that she was the last hold out in Hollywood. Her marriage to her first husband lasted six years. She later married Frank Gifford in 1986, but they divorced in 2015.
Kevin Jonas & His Purity Ring
Kevin Jonas was part of the infamous Jonas brothers, and all of them quickly became popular with fans. Kevin is the oldest of the brother, and they all wore their very own “purity ring” to demonstrate their commitment to chastity. Of the three, it appears that Kevin is probably the only one who kept that vow (Joe admitted that the promise was broken).
Kevin was undeterred. At 18, he said, “My ring represents a promise to myself and God that I’ll stay pure until marriage.” He married Danielle Deleasa in 2009, and the couple now has two children.
Jessica Simpson’s Something Special
Jessica Simpson is another famous celebrity who proclaimed that she was waiting until marriage. She was raised a Baptist, but said, “Abstinence for me is about romance. It has nothing to do with my relationship with God. It’s definitely a bonus in that department, but it’s nothing spiritual. It’s about giving something special to that person you’re going to spend the rest of your life with.”
So, she waited until she married Nick Lachey in 2001 when she was 22-years old, but their marriage only lasted until 2005. She did say that that act of waiting until marriage made her most proud. She went on to have two children out of wedlock with Eric Johnson.
Kirk Cameron – Lock The Door
You probably remember him as Mike Severson on Growing Pains, but he’s gone on to appear in the Left Behind series as well as Fireproof. He also partnered with Ray Comfort for an Evangelical ministry, The Way of the Master. His decision to be celibate until marriage is also tied to his Evangelical faith.
He famously says, “I’m glad I waited.” He met his wife, Chelsea, while he was still on the set of Growing Pains, and they’ve been together ever since. Kinda mushy, but he says: “Love is a promise. It’s a room you go into where you learn how to serve someone else. And you don’t leave that room. You lock the door and throw away the key.”
Lenny Kravitz – Promise Made?
Yeah, you probably know that Lenny Kravitz has done a little bit of everything. He’s an American singer, songwriter, record producer, and an actor. And, he’s also incorporated elements of many musical genres into his own unique style. He also won the Grammy Award for “Best Male Rock Vocal Performance” over four consecutive years. So, yeah, you know him…
He explains that while he thinks that it’s important to be close, “It’s just that I’m going to do it with my wife. And not everybody else.” So, while he told Maxim: “(It’s) a promise I made until I get married.” He later told Details: “I said it, and it just got blown way out of proportion.”
Lisa Kudrow – Precious Honor
You probably know (and love) Lisa Kudrow from the role she played as Phoebe on Friends. But, reports say that she’s really nothing like the hippie she played on the show, and she has also been vocal about her decision to wait until marriage. She explained that it was “something I’d decided was very precious…an honor I was bestowing on a young man.”
But, did she really wait until she was 31, when she married Michael Stern? Some have taken an interview with Jay Leno to mean that she may not have been completely celibate. The quote that they point to is this one: “No, no. What I was trying to say is that when I was young I had always had hoped and wanted to be…” What do you think?
Lolo Jones – It’s Harder Than Olympics Training
Lolo Jones is American hurdler and bobsledder who specializes in the 60-meter and 100-meter hurdles. She was an Olympic athlete but fell short of winning any medals. About her choice of waiting until marriage, she said, “It’s just something, a gift I want to give my husband.”
But, she also said that it’s “harder than training for the Olympics.” She is also very comfortable with her body. She posed semi-nude for ESPN the Magazine’s “The Body” issue in 2009. Jones was also on the cover of Outside magazine in 2012. The “bathing suit” she wore was made up of ribbon that had been strategically placed.
Mariah Carey Waited for Nick Cannon
Mariah Carey is a huge pop star, of course. She’s the obvious best-selling female singer from the ’90s. In her credits, though, you’ll find mention of a whole lot more. Beyond singing, she’s a songwriter, record producer, and even an actress. She’s quite a lady!
Yes, she’d been married before to Tommy Mottola, in 1993 (and divorced in 1998), but she still vowed to remain celibate with Nick Cannon until they got married. Maybe it’s not such a surprise, then, that they got hitched just two months after they started dating. She explained, “It’s not that we had no intimacy. We just didn’t have complete intimacy. It’s just me, and my feelings. But we both have similar beliefs and I just thought that it would be so much more special if we waited until we were married. And it was.” While they might have had some good moments, the couple divorced in 2016.
Meagan Good About “The Wait”
Actress Meagan Good is married to DeVon Franklin, a Seventh Day Adventist minister. She was vocal about her vow of celibacy before marriage, and they’ve even released the New York Times bestselling book, The Wait. They talk about their journey with abstinence. Since so many others lament how hard it is, the book also offers advice to those who are struggling.
In the book, they explain their reasoning: “We live in a culture addicted to the quick hookup, the miracle cure, and the overnight sensation. The Wait is the remedy for that addiction.” But, waiting until marriage also supports the fact that it’s not always easy to find that person who will love you the way you deserve. It’s about being (and becoming) “self-aware and humble enough to admit that our first impulses aren’t always smart ones.”
Rebecca St. James on Making Memories
For Rebecca St. James, it really makes all the career sense in the world for her to remain celibate. She has written books about her desire to wait until marriage, but she also sings hit songs about it! She is a Grammy Award-winning Christian recording artist, after all.
She felt compelled to defend her position on Fox News. She said: “Can I just say that [it] – and I’ve never been with anyone else – is so cherishing and beautiful, and I’m glad I don’t have memories with anyone else, and I’m glad my husband doesn’t have anyone to compare me to.” She married Jacob “Cubbie” Fink in 2011, and she gave birth to her daughter, Gemma Elena Fink, in 2014.
Sarah Drew on Falling in Love Via Letters
You may know Sarah Drew for her role on Grey’s Anatomy. She married her college sweetheart, Peter Lanfer, in 2002. He’s a lecturer at UCLA. She was once asked if their relationship was “love at first sight,” to which she replied: “For him it was. For me, we were leading a camp together and I was very focused on the kids. I had been burned twice by guys, so I was wounded and not interested in guys at all. He pursued me with handwritten letters for like eight months. It was incredibly romantic and old fashioned. I fell in love with him through the letters.”
The couple also waited until marriage. A fan famously asked her about how she compared to the character of Dr. April Kepner. Specifically, the person asked: “Are you as religious as April. How old were u when you first lost [it] lol?” The actress replied, “I waited until marriage.” Beyond being married since 2002, the star-crossed couple now has two children. Micah Emmanuel was born in 2012, and Hannah Mali Rose was born in 2014.
Sean Lowe & Catherine Giudici
You know him as the Bachelor hunk on Season 13, but did you know that he and his chosen fiancee, Catherine Giudici, decided to wait until their honeymoon? That’s kind of a big deal when everything comes out via reality TV and the tabloids.
Giudici told The View, “We made a really good decision for us and we’re excited to consummate as husband and wife.” She was busy talking about that big wedding in 2014. She also said, “It’s something that is a benefit of being married.” And, of course, they also posted newborn baby pictures of Samuel Thomas last year. The proud mom posted, “I think I’m in love :)”
Sherri Shepherd on Sticking to Values
Sherri Shepherd is a TV host and actress. She famously jumped in to defend Olympian Lola Jones against critics that found fault with her desire to wait until marriage, saying: “I think it’s great that she’s sticking to her values.” She further said, “Nobody applauds anybody sticking to their values, but when they mess up, they go ‘Where’s your values?’”
In 2012, 29-year-old Shepherd also made headlines from comments she made in an interview with HBO Real Sports, when she said that she’d been saving herself for marriage. In her relationship with her second husband, she said she also waited until her wedding night.
You may know him for his Twilight role, but Taylor Lautner seems to capture everyone’s attention as a huge heartthrob both on and off the Big Screen. He took the abstinence vow back in 2009, and nobody’s been able to prove (or report) any deviation from that promise. You’d be sure to see it blitzed across every possible tabloid, that’s for sure.
Of course, he also didn’t say he was waiting until marriage, just that he was waiting for the “right girl.” Of course, rumors have it that his vow may be part of why his relationships just don’t last. Is he calling it quits and moving on when he determines they’re just not “all that” or are they breaking it off when he won’t break his abstinence vow? Then again, he also famously lamented: “Oh, it’s soo hard being famous! I can’t date anybody because everybody just wants my hot body and my Twilight millions!” Not the most modest, but he does say he hopes he’s romantic, and that it’s “more than the flowers and the gifts.” He says, “It’s about connecting with the person and being able to talk and share things with her.”
Tim Tebow is a famous NFL player, but he made huge headlines when he announced that he’d vowed to remain celibate until marriage. Of course, there have also been lots of rumors about whether it’s that decision to wait also ruined his relationship with Olivia Culpo.
For his part, he seemed like he was stuck on her. During the brief relationship, sources said, “It’s very new, but he thinks she is a goddess. He’s very attentive, and writes her sweet notes all the time.” While some surmised it was his decision to “wait,” others claim that Culpo just wasn’t that into him, and/or that she was still recovering from her breakup with Nick Jonas. Sometimes the timing is just way off. Then again, there may be lots of women hoping and really trying to get him into bed, since one dating website offered $1 million to any woman who could offer proof that she’d slept with Tebow.
The Wildest Incidents To Happen During Concerts!
For some people, concerts are their favorite events to go to. Being able to see their favorite artist perform the songs they love is almost like a dream come true. Unfortunately, there are moments when the concert does not go as planned. Some concerts are wildly interrupted by unexpected events and it throws off the whole rhythm of the event. Here is a slew of the craziest reasons why concerts were interrupted.
First of all, he is performing on a floating stage. The concert should have been interrupted for safety measures but Kanye will be Kanye. This particular interruption ended up ended the concert after only 30 minutes.
Kanye went on a rant about Trump, Jay Z, Bey, and much more before eventually ending the show and leaving fans upset. “Get ready to have a field day, press. Get ready, get ready. Because the show’s over,” were a few of his last words before he left.
At one of his concerts, “Sure Thing” singer Miguel was sued for his Hulk Hogan style dropkick that he performed on a fan. While performing at the Billboard awards in 2013, Miguel decided to unleash his inner Power Ranger and leap across a small crowd of fans. He must have misjudged how tight his pants were mid-jump and it ended up hurting a fan.
He landed on the fan’s neck and immediately after the show he was interviewed with the fan. “We just met,” Miguel joked. “Unfortunately we did not meet under the best circumstances, but I think we’re okay.” Her name is Tsai and she sued him for negligence and sought damages to cover medical fees.
The Stones Spark Trouble
The year was 1969 and the Rolling Stones had just completed a successful American tour. To celebrate, they were the headliners of a free festival at Altamont. Things seemed legit but there was something questionable in place and that was when they chose to hire members of a notorious biker gang as their security.
Chaos eventually broke loose when fighting in the crowd began. Fighting already sounds bad enough but it got worse. Someone was killed after a serious bout broke loose with a member of the biker club. At least we know that if you use them as security, you are well protected.
Kid Cudi’s Knuckle Sandwich
Kid Cudi has one of the most loyal fan bases. Even when he puts out experimental music that is nothing like the style he blew up on, the true fans will support him. In 2009, Cudi went toe-to-toe with one of these fans all because of a simple misunderstanding.
While performing one of his classic songs “Pursuit of Happiness,” a wallet was thrown on stage and Cudi responded. He went to pick the wallet up and throw it back but the person he threw it to said it was not his so he threw back. Cudi didn’t like that and went into the crowd and socked the guy in the face.
Metallica and Guns ‘N’ Roses
It was 1992 and a bunch of things went wrong over in Montreal. Metallica was co-headlining a concert with Guns ‘N’ Roses and their half of the fiasco may be just as bad if not worse than the other incident. James Hetfield was burned horribly by the pyrotechnics so they had to cut their half of the show short.
Then it got worse when Axl Rose made the crowd upset by showing up late and leaving early because of “vocal issues.” 50 thousand people started to riot. They smashed windows and set fires causing the police to go after rioters in the streets.
Limp Bizkit Eggs on 1999 Woodstock
Woodstock ’99 was a disaster. Just so you believe us, the temperature was scorching, the lines were long just to buy an expensive bottle of water, and the planning for the event could have gone a lot better because chaos was afoot that year.
It was supposed to be a concert that promoted peace and love as well as a free-spirited kindness but the opposite was in effect especially when Limp Bizkit got on stage to perform. Vandalism and destruction were going on and the leader of the group, Fred Durst, was just egging the crowd on like it was the thing to do.
Pearl Jam Tragedy
In 2000, something happened that no band would want to happen. As a matter of fact, no one should want this fate to happen to anyone especially while they are out trying to enjoy the music they love. At the Roskilde Festival in Denmark, nine people were left killed.
When fans went to rush the stage to see Pearl Jam perform, that is how many of them got their lives taken. The moment Pearl Jam heard of this tragedy they stopped the show. Being the good people that they are, they stayed in touch with the families and reference them in the song “Love Boat Captain.”
Justin Bieber Storms Off
Most are aware of Justin Bieber’s past mishaps and public interactions. He once spit on the people below him from his balcony and we do not know why. In a concert, however, he took it to Kanye level and ended it himself because of the fans.
“He went to dry up the water with a towel when fans tried to take the towel from Bieber,” the eyewitness continues. “He became angry and walked off the stage.” Bieber later said he was sorry on Instagram with, “sadly it’s been a rough week for me, long days no sleep, while having to be ‘on’ as they would say for cameras fans etc. In no way did I mean to come across mean.”
Lady Gaga Gets Crashed
Lady Gaga is known for having her own crazy antics like wearing an all-meat costume as a form of making a statement. Not fake meat but real meat was her choice of clothing for the event. This time, a fan flipped the script and went crazy on her for once.
While performing one of her many smash records, a fan found her way on stage as the background dancers are not breaking form and Gaga starts to back away. The fan seems to be pleading to Gaga as she inched closer to her before eventually being carried off stage.
Drake Tears His ACL
In the early stage of the Canadian superstar’s career, he hit a major bump in the road. It happened around the time his hot single “Best I Ever Had” was making its course on the radio and everybody had got tired of it after just two weeks.
This was also during the era when some rappers were still wearing baggy jeans and Drake just so happened to have a pair on. While performing the aforementioned song he started to trot around and out of nowhere he slipped and landed flat on the ground. You could see him pound the ground in disappointment and pain right before people came to help him backstage.
The Fire in Rhode Island
In 2003, pyrotechnics got the best of a band once again but this time in an even more deadly manner. The band Great White was performing and suddenly the pyrotechnics lit the soundproof insulation and that is when mayhem broke loose. 100 people died during the incident including someone you would least expect.
The guitarist of the band was also killed in the fire and another 200 plus suffered burns and other injuries. The tour manager was sentenced to ten years in prison for involuntary manslaughter but got off on parole in 2008. This hit hard for the band, especially for Jack Russell.
Here we have another case of a deranged fan, and this might be the craziest one can get. In 2004, Damageplan was performing in Columbus, Ohio when something unpredictable happened. Something that should put incentives in place so that no one can carry weapons at a concert. The fan climbed on stage and what happened next was horrible.
Once on stage, the fan by the name of Nathan Gale took out his 9mm and put multiple bullets in the head of Dimebag Darrell. An additional three others were killed as well before the murderer was brought down. Eventually, those involved summed up the courage to rock another day.
German Love Parade Festival
The German Love Parade is the German version of EDM. What happened here is a prime example of what you get when you try to cram too many people in a small space. It just doesn’t work! And as a result, the festival was canceled after 2010.
The area in which the festival was taking place only could hold roughly 250,000 people. The total number of fans that showed up came out to more than one million. 500 people were injured and 21 passed away due to the lack of space. This was a lesson to be learned in event planning.
The Collapse at the Indiana State Fair
Sugarland was set to go on stage and perform next at the Indiana State Fair in 2011. That is until the weather had a change of plans for the fair and put tons of people’s lives in danger. Seven deaths even occurred because of the collapse of the stage that took place.
It was said to have collapsed due to the weather and Sugarland was said to be “stunned and heartbroken” by what happened and had no words to talk about what happened. After that tragic event, state fairs have now taken more precaution and finding better ways to combat the weather.
Big Sean Says, “Stop Throwing Money”
While Big Sean was promoting his number one album I Decided he did a show performing some of the songs off the album while in Las Vegas. The “Bounce Back” rapper was at Drai’s Nightclub and a certain fan thought it would appropriate to turn it into a different type of club.
The fan was throwing money at the stage and Big Sean was not a fan of that. “Hey, stop throwing [expletive] money my [expletive],” Sean yelled. The crowd was in shock because everyone sees Big Sean as a mild-mannered person. Throwing money while he performs is what ticks him off, it seems.
Snoop and Wiz Are clueless
Snoop Dogg and Wiz Khalifa are two of the biggest green advocates in the music business. The two of them have made plenty of songs together and even have graced the stage together on tour. One performance, a rail was not very secure and happened to fall over leaving a handful of people falling on their faces.
Fans were packed tight to see the duo perform and leaning heavy on the rail that kept that safe. While Snoop and Wiz turned around for a split second, the railing fell and the two didn’t even notice. Security came on stage to get the stars backstage.
Demi Gets Ambushed
No one can get enough of their favorite artist, that goes without saying. Demi Lovato learned that first hand if she didn’t already know. In 2012, she decided to get fancy and let some fans go over the barrier so that they could get closer to her while she was talking to the audience.
“You guys got to be safe, though,” said Lovato. Maybe she should have been more concerned about her own safety before letting them get so close. First, one girl hopped on stage and to hug her and shortly after about three more fans rushed in before Lovato was rushed off the stage.
Drake makes the list again but this time he didn’t injure himself. This also happened early in his career and it foreshadowed how big he was going to be. Only a few artists have the ability to do what Drake did to this poor girl.
It appeared this young lady was elevated in the crowd due to her being on someone’s back and Drake came up to her and sang directly to her. He grabbed her hand while serenading her and the girl was going crazy. When he backed away and went to the center stage, moments later she straight up passed out. The show was paused as Drake spoke to the audience.
Miley Gets Rushed Off Stage
This is similar to Demi Lovato’s situation except Miley Cyrus didn’t entice the fans by saying they could come closer to her. While she was on her Gypsy Heart Tour in 2011, before she became the wrecking ball that she is now, a fan got bold and rushed the stage.
It was almost like a sneak attack because the fan crept up from behind like a ninja and tried to give Miley a big hug. In a matter of seconds, security came and apprehended the young lady and then rushed the star off of the stage. The girl could have just wanted a hug.
The Queen Got Pulled
It is no secret that Beyoncé is one of the biggest stars of this era. When she performs, her shows are always sold out. She brings thousands of fans to her shows wherever she goes. That includes Brazil where she was dragged off the stage by a fan in the crowd.
Beyoncé likes to get interactive with the fans when she performs sometimes and there is nothing wrong with that. However, we are thinking maybe she should up the security when she does interact with her adoring fanbase. While performing “Irreplaceable” she got down on her knees by the edge of the stage and a man with his shirt off pulled her down. When the guards try to escort him out, Beyoncé said to let him stay and had a dialogue with him in front of everybody.
