10 Pop Stars Who Hit Rock Bottom
Behind all of the glitz and glam of Hollywood lies the stories of real people with their own stories and demons. For many people fame, or the pursuit of it, can take its toll and overwhelm the personal lives of the people living it. Many A-listers also have their own stories of tragic woe that can make or break them. This list takes a look at those celebrities who have succumbed to life’s curve balls and hit rock bottom.
10. Justin Bieber
J-Biebes is a fan favorite amongst teenaged girls the world over, but he lost a lot of credibility amongst adults when his behavior spiralled out of control in a matter of months. Justin Bieber started his career marketing himself toward tween fans, but as he got older his image and behavior began to change drastically. His wild antics took hold in the past couple years and soon Justin Bieber went from beloved Canadian artist to one of the most hated celebrities of all time! He dissed fans, egged a neighbor’s house and threatened to kill the owner, received DUI charges, had countless conflicts with the press, peed in a restaurant’s mop bucket, and abused drugs. With the recent success of his 4th studio album Purpose, many people seem to be getting back on board the Bieber train, but only time will tell if he’ll be able to re-establish his reputation.
9. Amy Winehouse
Amy Winehouse had a very public battle with addiction that was fueled by her inability to cope with the constant borage of paparazzi and her desire to be loved. Amy struggled with bulimia, alcohol, and heroin throughout her brief but successful career. Her addiction landed her in the hospital and rehab, she also got her booed off stage at several live performances resulting in the cancellation of her tour. The disease ended up taking her life at the age of 27, when she was found dead of alcohol poisoning in her Camden Square residence in England. Amy is considered to have been one of the greatest women in music and the BBC has called her “the pre-eminent vocal talent of her generation.” It is a shame the world lost her so soon.
