What would a year be without some pretty serious celebrity scandals? It would be particularly boring for those of us at FAME10, but then again, a year of writing about celebrity charity work would be pretty stellar. Celebrities are like the rest of us, except we get to single out all the times they put their feet in their mouths, and then inevitably apologize about it on Twitter. Or–if you’re some people on this list–you’re unapologetic, and particularly surly about your controversy. Either way, here are 11 of the biggest celebrity scandals of 2015.
11. Ariana Grande
Let’s call her “Donut Licker” for the rest of the year, shall we? Ariana offended every American–I think she forgot she’s American–when she railed and ranted about hating Americans, and then started licking donuts on the counter of a donut shop. Donuts that were being sold to the public. There was no getting around this misbehavior because it was all captured on a security camera. What else could she do but apologize profusely via social media? Sure, we’re all inclined to do stupid things at various times, but to complain about how stupid, and annoying “Americans” are (BTW: a large portion of her fan base are American–lets not forget she wouldn’t have a career without them) and then to disgustingly lick food for sale? Ariana proved she’s not above the people she insults — sounds a little like the kettle calling the pot black. Ariana was quickly forgiven, because people really don’t care if they’re offended by a sprite-like songstress. She’s pretty harmless.Photo by Broadimage/REX
