Top 10 celebrity WTF moments of the year
Ranging from Drake and Meek Mill's diss tracks to Sarah Jessica Parker's feud with Kim Cattrall, this list has all you need to go 'WTF'!
Who doesn't love celebrity drama? Admit it, no matter how much we deny it, we all like to be in the privy when it comes to celebrity lives. And tabloids are full of instances like wardrobe malfunctions, celebrity fights, and arrests that easily sell out even the most mundane newspapers. Given how the media is now almost saturated with celebrity stories, it can be hard to keep up with the various moments when celebrities are part of some absolutely bizarre incidents.
If you're tracking current events among celebrities, this list should keep you up to date with some of the most WTF moments of 2018.
Drake and Pusha-T feud
The beef between Drake and Pusha-T started when Lil Wayne signed Drake to his label 'Young Money Entertainment' back in the 2010s. However, it peaked in May this year, with the release of Pusha's Kanye-produced album 'Daytona' in which the final track 'Infrared' includes a reference to Drake using ghostwriters. The same day, Drake fired back with 'Duppy Freestyle', which takes a potshot at both Pusha-T and Kanye.
Pusha-T came back at Drake a few days later in spectacular fashion, dropping 'The Story of Adidon', a track packed with scathing disses about Drake’s family, his rumored illegitimate child, and his friend with multiple sclerosis.
What was even more surprising was the cover art for the track, that showed an old photo of Drake, grinning in blackface paint.
When asked about it, Pusha responded saying that it was taken over 10 years ago, when he was working as an actor “on a project that was about young black actors struggling to get roles, being stereotyped and typecast. The photos represented how African Americans were once wrongfully portrayed in entertainment.”
Young Thug's arrest
On August 16, 2018, rapper Young Thug apparently rented out the Dave & Busters in Hollywood to celebrate both his 27th birthday as well as the release of his new compilation project 'Slime Language'. However, the celebrations got a little too wild, leading to authorities arresting Young Thug at the Hollywood and Highland Center, where the Dave & Busters is located, early the next morning. The cops charged the rapper with felony gun possession, and authorities even searched his vehicle after one of his cars bumped into a police car. He was held on a $35,000 bond.
Nicki Minaj's nip slip
The rap queen suffered, yet another, wardrobe malfunction at the 'Made in America' Festival in Philadelphia on Sunday, September 2. The 35-year-old Hip-hop star took to stage in a tiny velvet dress, with an extremely low neckline, which almost revealed her knickers. However, as she grooved to her songs, her dress slipped down baring her chest which she managed to cover with her hands while continuing with the routine. It is unlikely that anything can stop Nicki from being the 'Queen' that she is.
Drake and Meek Mill rap beef
The feud between Drake and Meek Mill started on July 22 when Meek Mill went on Twitter to publicly accuse Drake of not writing his own raps. In his response to the allegations, Drake came out with a diss track titled 'Charged Up' a few days later, and another called 'Back to Back Freestyle' after that. Not to be outdone, Mill came back with his own diss track, 'Wanna Know' — featuring Quentin Miller, who wrote a Tumblr post just days before clarifying that he’s collaborated with Drake and is “not and never will be a ‘ghostwriter’ for him.” However, Drake decided to take a different route this time, and instead of going for a diss track, he simply posted an Instagram photo of himself laughing before not-so-subtly insulting Mill at an August 3 show.
Stormy Daniels gets arrested
Stormy Daniels, who is better known as the adult actress who claimed she had an affair with President Trump back in 2006, was arrested at Sirens, an Ohio strip club, on July 11, 2018. She was charged with three counts of illegal sexually-oriented activity but was later released on bail on July 12 after posting a $6,054 cash bail. The arrest was a result of Daniels allegedly touching patrons at the club inappropriately, but the adult entertainer has decided to plead 'not guilty' for the charges. Less than 24 hours after the arrest, the case was dismissed and charges were dropped, following which, her lawyer, Micahel Avenatti said the arrest was a "setup" and "politically motivated".
Sarah Jessica Parker and Kim Cattrall fallout
Although Sarah Jessica Parker will not admit to a feud with her former 'Sex And The City' co-star Kim Cattrall, anyone who has witnessed the immense drama between them would surely disagree. The simple explanation of the duo's famous feud is just this: Kim Cattrall thinks SJP was mean on 'Sex And The City', SJP thinks she wasn’t (obviously). Cattrall has since then put her foot down for a third movie on the popular sitcom, and unless holographic technology gets really good, there might be no 'Sex And The City 3' in the making ever.
Bella Thorne's swimming catastrophe
Bella Thorne is no stranger to wardrobe malfunctions, like every other celebrity out there. In June, the actress was having some fun in Hawaii with her boyfriend and her sister Dani Thorne, when at one point, she suffered a major wardrobe malfunction as her bikini opened up with the force of the waves and her breasts were on full display.
Kim Kardashian's wedgies too
Wedgies can happen to anyone, but when it happens to someone as bootylicious as Kim Kardashian, it is bound to become news. Back in August, Kim and her BFF Larsa Pippen did a photoshoot in Miami wearing metallic swimsuits. Kim sported a bikini while Larsa wore a sexy one piece. Unfortunately for the duo, the fabric just couldn’t hold on to covering up their butts and slid into their butt cracks.
Vince Vaughn's DUI
In the wee hours of June 10, 2018, Vince Vaughn was arrested for a DUI. The actor, along with another passenger, was stopped at a DUI checkpoint around 12:30 am between Hermosa Beach and Manhattan Beach, CA. It was reported that Vaughn refused to get out of the car, and Manhattan Beach Police Department's Sgt. Matt Sabosky said the actor was arrested for driving under the influence and for resisting, delaying, or obstructing officers. Even his passenger was arrested on charges of obstructing officers and public intoxication.
Meghan Markle's poor choice in lingerie
Meghan Markle, who recently became the Duchess of Sussex after marrying Prince Harry, too was a victim of a fashion faux pas recently. Meghan was wearing one of her go-to looks for the second day of her royal visit to Dublin earlier this year, but her grey Roland Mouret dress could not do enough justice for one simple reason: her wrong choice of lingerie. Many royal fans took to Twitter to share that she needed some help when it comes to choosing her undies, while some said her undergarment choice was an epic 'fashion fail'.
