Celebrities are like us, only richer and noticed. Regardless of their title, they are humans too, which means they have their good moments and bad moments. When you’re famous (as if I know), it doesn’t matter what you do, because anything and everything that you do is made into a bigger deal than it actually is. We compiled a list of ten celebrity moments that will never be forgotten.
1. Adele’s 2017 Grammy Performance
No one will ever forget the 2017 Grammy Awards, because of Adele. At the 2017 Grammy Awards, Adele performed a rendition of ‘Fastlove’ in honor of the late George Michael. During the live performance, she stopped and said “I f**ked up, I can’t do it again like last year.” Adele felt that her performance wasn’t up-to-par, so she restarted the song. We still love you, Adele!
2. Prince Harry & Meghan Markle’s Wedding
The royal wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle took place on May 19th, 2018 in St. George’s Chapel. On this day, Prince Harry became the Duke of Sussex, Earl of Dumbarton and Meghan Markle became the Duchess of Sussex, Countess of Dumbarton. Millions of viewers watched from the UK and the U.S. as a new royal couple became one.
3. Miley Cyrus at the VMAs
This girl isn’t afraid to let her freak fly. This was probably one of the most epic celebrity moments of 2013. At the 2013 VMAs, Miley Cyrus performed alongside Robin Thicke. On stage, Miley sported a two-piece nude outfit. During the performance, Miley Cyrus danced, twerked, and made sexual gestures, for which she was later criticized for. This performance created quite the buzz, even months after the award show took place.
4. Beyoncé’s Twins
Beyoncé announced on February 1st, 2017 via Instagram that she and Jay-Z were expecting twins. Her post on Instagram received millions of likes and comments, making it the most-liked image of 2017. On June 13th, 2017, Beyoncé gave birth to a baby girl, Rumi and a baby boy, Sir Carter.
5. Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper’s Oscar Performance
When the two brought their rendition of ‘Shallow’ to life at the 2019 Oscars, everyone was talking about the undeniable chemistry between Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper. Although the two were originally dating other people, they are both now single, so you never know what could happen in the future.
6. Ariana Grande’s World-wind Romance
2018 was probably the worst year for singer, Ariana Grande. Fans were in complete shock when it was announced that Ariana Grande was engaged to comedian, Pete Davidson, because the couple had only been dating for a month. The pair seemed to be on top of the world, until October 2018, when they broke off their engagement.
7. Taylor Swift’s Fight To Own Her Music
After 12 years with Big Machine Records, Taylor decided that it was time for bigger and better things. In November 2018, Swift signed a new deal with Universal Music Group. On June 30th, Taylor took to Tumblr to spill some tea: “I was given an opportunity to sign back up to Big Machine Records and ‘earn’ one album back at a time, one for every new one I turned in. I walked away because I knew once I signed that contract, Scott Borchetta would sell the label, thereby selling me and my future.” Scott Borchetta made the decision to sell Swift’s master recordings to Scooter Braun… That’s where the drama really started, because Taylor Swift isn’t that fond of Scooter Braun.
8. College Admissions Scandal
This is definitely one of the worst scandals of all time. Amongst the 40+ people involved in this scandal, was actress, Lori Loughlin and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli. The couple allegedly paid the University of California a bribe of $500,000 to get their daughters, Olivia Jade and Isabella Giannulli accepted into the University. Along with their “acceptance”, Olivia and Isabella were to also be apart of the college’s rowing team, when neither of the girls was an actual participant of the sport. This drama came in like a wrecking ball…
9. The Return of the Jonas Brothers
The Jonas Brothers released their first album in 2006, which was semi-successful. The brothers guest starred on an episode of Hannah Montana titled, “Me and Mr. Jonas and Mr. Jonas and Mr. Jonas”. In 2007, they would go on to film Camp Rock, which aired on Disney Channel in 2008. In 2013, Kevin, Nick, and Joe decided to go their separate ways. Kevin started a family with his wife, Danielle Jonas, Nick began a solo career, and Joe went on to form a band called, DNCE (2015). Four years later, in 2019, the boys have decided to make a comeback. Unfortunately, Nick and Joe are longer on the market, as they are both married, but we still love them! The Jonas Brothers released their fifth studio album, Happiness Begins, on June 7th.
10. Joey King in the ‘The Act’
This girl can act! The original Hulu series, ‘The Act’, is based on a real story about a girl named, Gypsy Rose Blanchard. Gypsy was raised by her mother to believe that she was ill, even too ill to walk. Overtime, Gypsy Blanchard starts to realize that she isn’t really sick; she struggles to find a healthy way to cope with this newfound information… that’s when her mother is found dead. Joey King (Gypsy Blanchard) acts alongside Patricia Arquette (Dee Dee Blanchard) in the buzz-worthy series. If you haven’t seen the series, do yourself a favor and binge watch it now, because once you start watching, it’s hard to stop.
