Some celebrity scandals are truly just imprinted inside my brain. No matter how much stuff goes on in my own life, I just can’t seem to forget about the drama that went on with people I don’t even know. Even though they’re celebrities, the scandals somehow still feel all too familiar. These are all the iconic celebrity scandals that we’ll just never forget, no matter how many years go by:
Winona Ryder’s shoplifting spree
It doesn’t make much sense why a celebrity would shoplift, but Winona Ryder managed to do it. In 2001, she shoplifted at a Saks Fifth Avenue in Beverly Hills and stole $5,560 worth of merchandise by just ripping off the tags and putting them in her bag. She was later convicted of grand theft and vandalism and had to do probation, community service, pay a fine, and go to counseling.
Britney Spears shaved her head
This is a scandal that’s still often talked about today. We all know about the infamous Britney Spears shaved head incident. In 2007, she shaved off all her hair and beat up a photographer’s car with an umbrella a few days later. 2007 was definitely not a good year for Britney Spears.
Kim Kardashian’s sex tape
Another scandal that’s still often talked about today- Kim Kardashian’s sex tape. In 2007, Kim had made a sex tape with her then-boyfriend Willie “Ray J” Norwood was made public. The tape was created in 2002 but came to light once Kim started to get more famous. The video is still open to the public today, although she did try to get it removed from the internet.
Chris Brown assaulted Rihanna
In 2009, news surfaced that Chris Brown beat up Rihanna, which seriously impacted Brown’s reputation. He reportedly punched, bit, and chocked her. Rihanna later discussed the incident in a 20/20 interview where she said how “It was ugly. I fended him off with my feet…but it was not like, it was not like a fight with each other. I just…I really just wanted it to stop.”
Kanye West interrupts Taylor Swift’s speech
We all know this scandal, but it’s so embarrassing that I can barely watch it. At the 2009 VMA’s, Kanye West interrupted Swift’s acceptance speech with the infamous line “I’ mma let you finish, but…” and said how Beyoncé should have won the award. Little did we know then that would only be the start of years of drama between the two.
Tiger Woods’s cheating scandal
I don’t know why, but I remember this scandal SO clearly. In 2009, it came out that the professional golfer had been cheating on his then-wife with a nightclub hostess. However, it didn’t stop there. One mistress turned into two, and quickly it was revealed how Wood’s had cheated on his wife with 14 different women. He then checked himself into rehab for sex addiction.
Miley Cyrus twerks
Miley Cyrus has had her fair share of scandals, but one of the most famous is when she twerked on Robin Thicke during their performance of “We Can’t Stop” and “Blurred Lines” at the 2013 VMA’s. The incident changed the way many looked at Cyrus.
Kendall Jenner’s Pepsi commercial
I genuinely wonder who thought this commercial would be a good idea. In 2017, Kendall Jenner appeared in a Pepsi commercial that showed the model using soda to make peace between cops and protestors. The ad was criticized for being insensitive and underplaying police brutality. Pepsi pulled the commercial the next day.
