Celebs – you can’t live with them, you can’t live without them either. They’re normal people, just like you and me however, since they are in the spotlight, their every move is photographed, reported and rubbed into our faces. There are some celebrities who are “harmless” – they are the ones who you just can’t dislike: no matter how bizarre their behaviour, no matter what the tabloids report. However, there are celebrities who are just – annoying. They could be doing something innocuous such as sitting in a café having a cup of coffee and yet they’d get a rise out of you. There are a lot of hopelessly annoying celebrities around, and here’s five of them (individuals and/or couples) in no particular order:
Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt
This couple first gained popularity (or is it, notoriety) through the TV Show, The Hills and they just kept on cashing in on what little attention they received from the media. Spencer became Heidi’s manager and together they created “Speidi” – a couple who paraded in endless staged photo-ops with the paparazzi. Heidi even embarked on a (short-lived) singing career and she managed to raise eyebrows (and everyone’s annoyance levels even more) by undergoing several plastic surgery procedures in order to make herself “perfect”.
Teen Mom, Farrah Abraham
Her being a teen mom was not what made her annoying. It was her annoying, loud and obnoxious persona (hoping that it’s just her screen personality, but that’s unlikely). After the show was completed, Farrah made the cross-over to the film industry – the ADULT FILM INDUSTRY. She filmed a porn video and tried to pass it off as an “accidental sex tape”, playing the aggrieved girlfriend. When that didn’t work, she tried to sell the undies she wore in the video. Her last claim to fame was a (very painful) video clip of her auditioning for a role in Days of Our Lives.
Kanye West first made himself a pain in the behind when he unceremoniously interrupted Taylor Swift (yet another annoying celeb) during the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards. What else has he done to make himself annoying? Well, likens himself to Jesus (what?!), claims his artistic talents (he designed leather jogging pants – LEATHER jogging pants?!) are being curtailed, and considers himself a musical genius – just to name a few. AND now, has he’s hooked up with equally annoying reality show “star” Kim Kardashian.
She was sweet before – and then she decided to change her image and became “edgier”. That’s not an issue – but her attitude and downright disregard for others have made her annoying as anything. Who can forget her cringe-worthy performance at the 2013 MTV VMAs where she gyrated shamelessly against the groin of another singer and dressed in a provocative flesh-toned suit. Furthermore, she’s attracted the ire of other performers by literally and figuratively sticking her (not-clean-looking) tongue out at them. She’s posted a host of inappropriate twitter messages and constantly posts pictures of her not-even-remotely-sexy-looking body on the internet for all and sundry to see.
He may be a good musician but when he’s not making music, he’s making waves – and not in a good way. He got on everyone’s nerves when he assaulted his then-girlfriend Rihanna in a majorly bad way. He hasn’t gained any sympathy afterwards because he has shown every emotion in the book except remorse and shame. He’s still at it. Gossip magazines often report him initiating fights at bars, ignoring probation rules, skipping counselling sessions … and the list goes on and on and on …
However, let’s give these celebrities the benefit of the doubt. Maybe they really aren’t that annoying. Maybe media has twisted their images to make them less likeable than other celebrities. Maybe they just don’t have the right PR team. Who knows – but this is what the media is showing - they can’t blame anyone for not liking them.
