Most celebrities are assholes, plain and simple. They have a sense of entitlement due to who they are – not what they are, which is a human creature that pisses, shits, farts, menstruates, ejaculates, and has body odor like any other. They are worse than those born rich, such as European royalty, or people who wish they were royal, like the Trumps and the Kennedys. I have met people with money – they were affluent but certainly not wealthy by any means – and they were the most pretentious bitches and bastards ever. If the upper middle class are so anal, I can only imagine how truly rich people are.
I often visit various social media sites for interesting topics, and I came across a Reddit post asking if anyone had ever met a famous person and they turned out to be an asshole, which is how I got the idea for today’s blog post. I had already heard about some people being cunts – Madonna – and pricks – Prince. I have seen on TV firsthand how much of a shithead Chevy Chase is (he was yelling at a Black female assistant on a film set about he ‘didn’t care if she worked on The Color Purple’, etc etc) and also how racist Axl Rose, Nikki Sixx, Tommy Lee, and Elvis Costello are. Celebrities are jerks. They act as if they care so much for their ‘fans’ when the reality is, they only care about how much $$ the fans are spending on their worthless merchandise, feeding their egos with fan clubs and crying at their concerts and going to every movie the fuckers are in, just because…the hell with that!
Here are some anecdotes on many celebrities – some dead, some still alive – showing their asses.
On the O’Fallon show the guitarist for The Roots asked Prince to sign his guitar. Prince refused and then asked to borrow the guitar for the show and proceeded to smash this guys 1960’s guitar on stage. No autograph, guy still lends you his guitar, you smash his instrument. Nice move Prince. (Irish guy with auto correct. Prince actually ended up replacing that guitar. Still shitty as hell, though.)
I saw Demi Lovato in a smoothie shop with my 9-year-old cousin, who’s a big fan. We went up to herand my cousin asked for an autograph. She was texting, looked up, and with the most scathing look said, “Can’t you see I’m fucking busy?” My cousin was crushed and almost cried when we left.
I’m probably part of the minority here but Bill Murray. I met him 3 separate times all at different film festivals and every time he was a grumpy ass old man. 1st time he was flirting with a friend of mine and was aggravated that I wouldn’t leave him alone with her (granted). Second time at the same film festival, different party was cranky that he saw me again asking where my friend is and how I got into the party. 3rd time we met he asked me “Why do you keep coming to these things? Are you trying to meet someone or something?” I told him the truth, that my husband was there one involved with setting up every party he was at and I was invited. He was skeptical and just unpleasant.
Luis Guzman is unbelievably rude. He and his large family would come into a restaurant I worked in from time to time, treat their server like garbage, and never tip. He should re-watch “waiting”.
Jared Leto is a complete bag of assholes and no story needs to be told to prove this. (I can vouch for this. I was a sound technician at a show he was playing. I had some things I needed to ask him, but he was backstage tuning his guitar. I kept my distance and was waiting for him to be done when he looked up at me with the most hateful look I’ve ever received and said “Can I fucking help you?”. I said I was a tech and needed some info. He told me to fuck off. Great guy.
My Grandpa met the band Yes when he was working as an Airline Ticket Agent. The plane they were supposed to go on was delayed by 3 hours. They got up and said to my Grandpa, ‘We need to get on that plane. Do you not know who we are? We’re Yes.’ My Grandpa, not familiar with the band and annoyed, said back to them, ‘I don’t care if you’re No! Sit down!’
Katy Perry. I was a Marine stationed at Miramar a couple years back when she did a concert on base. They asked for volunteers to pull security which I promptly signed up for because she was my celebrity crush at the time. Figured it was the best chance I had to possibly meet her. So before the how when we’re finishing all the last minute preparations
a couple other Marines and I saw our opportunity to say hi to her…and she was a fucking BITCH. Refused to sign autographs, refused to take pictures, wouldn’t even shake our hands. I’ve never received dirtier looks from anyone than I did from her. I realize she gets those requests all the time and it’s probably annoying, and I would have been ok with her refusal if she was polite about it. But she made it very known she thought she was too good for us. I couldn’t believe it. After the show I talked to other guys that were working security and they all had similar stories. She did this show to “support the troops” and then was terrible to all the troops she actually met.
I was walking with a co-worker in downtown New Orleans when a limo pulled up beside us as we walked past the W (a hotel on Poydras Street). The members of Green Day all popped out, drinks in hand, with Billie Joe leading the way. He just shot past us without a word, but then one of the other guys (sorry, I’m not familiar enough to recognize who is who) looked at us and snapped, “Move, motherfuckers!”
We weren’t even remotely blocking the sidewalk, and unlike several other people, we weren’t moving in to ask for pictures.
I was interning at a big newspaper the summer of 2008. The day after Jesse Jackson was caught making disparaging remarks about Obama he came to our paper for an editorial board interview. This is when the top editors conduct a group interview, and they’re a pretty big deal. I was able to sit in on the interview and got to meet Jackson with everyone else. He didn’t even look us in the eye and had a disgustingly weak handshake. His hands were weird, too. I’d never before experienced what people describe as hands that only touch money, but he totally has them. He spent the next hour dodging and spinning every question and basically wasting our time. He was a bit creepy with one female editor, too. She was the only black lady in the room and he kissed her hand and got his body quite close during introductions. It was so different from how he greeted the rest of us that it came off as really inappropriate.
I had two encounters with Glenn Danzig where he acted like a baby/entitled asshole, but one in particular that sticks out. I worked at a hotel as a front desk supervisor where bands frequently stayed, and he was known by everyone there for being a major dick. Every time he stayed there, he do so under the alias “El Diablo.”
This one time in particular, we had a native spanish speaking reservationist that dropped the “El” off when inputting his name into the system, and consequently that’s how it showed up on the itinerary for all of his band/crew. Everything was running smooth with the check in until the moment he realized we were missing the “El” off of his nickname.
You would have thought I raped his first born with the reaction that followed. I was almost certain he was ready to cry out of anger, as it was a meltdown of epic proportions. Screamed, cussed, called us the most incompetent hotel he’d ever stayed at. Demanded that I not only fix it, but that I print out a new itinerary for everyone, b/c no one would find him under “Diablo” and it had to be “El Diablo.”
Didn’t happen to me but two of my friends decided to look for Kanye West after Drake’s OVO Fest concert in Toronto. Once they found him, a herd of people ran up to him, asking to take pictures and he didn’t mind at all. He seemed nice at first, and everyone was cracking jokes with him. Suddenly, some guy came out of nowhere and called him gay, and he didn’t say anything but he looked like he was about to blow up. His mood instantly changed, and he yelled at everyone to, “GET IN THE FUCKING PICTURE! I’M ONLY TAKING ONE PICTURE” in an angry tone. After they were finished, he stormed off. One of them showed me the picture and he looked pissed as hell.
Eminem: I saved up for months and took my little brother Matthew to his concert. We waited outside in the blistering cold for 4 hours and he just said no. It was cool that he didn’t want to talk to me.. but my six year old brother? He was my brothers idol, he liked him more than I do.
Met Megadeth about 6 months ago. Silly me paid $250 for the VIP package for the concert. Biggest waste of time and money. Any other VIP pass i’ve gotten with any other band has been totally worth it, getting lot’s of cool stuff and getting to hang with the band (Black Label Society being the best). With Megadeth, they came into the room with about 15 of us VIPers stood in front of us and had us line up to take photos with them. They didn’t say a word, didn’t sign any autographs, nothing. For most of the photos they didn’t even smile. Just a bunch of grumpy old men. I’m a huge Megadeth fan so this was a huge let down.
Chuck Woolery (of “Love Connection,” “Lingo,” gameshow host fame) is a major dick.
I was at O’Hare waiting for my flight to Baltimore to start boarding and had about an hour to kill. So I figured I’d get a coffee, maybe a book or something to kill time.
Walk into a duty free shop and start browsing. I’m half paying attention until I hear a woman arguing with the cashier. I think “meh, what a cunt” until I hear, “I’m not coming in until you make him leave and I NEED TO GET IN NOW.”
So I pay and begin to walk out and she huffs, “Ugh, finally. No autographs,” and I responded “Your husband Will Smith is the best,” while putting my headphones on.
I hope it really pissed her off.
Pauly Shore. I know, it’s not all that surprising, but still makes for a funny story.
Back when I was working as a barista, he came in late one night as one of the local theaters was holding a film festival and I guess he had something showing there. That night it was myself and three other co-workers, all female. He ignored every single one of us save my most attractive co-worker, who he proceeded to hit on in the most cringe-worthy fashion possible, trying to throw his weight around and impress her with his celebrity status. Hilariously, she was the youngest of us there and was the only one who had no idea who he was. If memory served, he ordered one of those stereotypical ultra high maintenance drinks (it was something like an iced half-caf nonfat two splenda white mocha) and when one of my coworkers made a reference to “the weasel” he sneered at her. I get that the guy probably gets it a lot, but seriously. He’s Pauly Shore. It’s not like he’s done a whole lot else that people have given a shit about.
Ohhh, my time to shine! Robert Irvine came to my high school, we have a famous culinary arts program there and he was in the area and came in. Total douche bag, the whole time he kept saying he had a show to go to, and his overall tone just made it even worse.
Justin Bieber, i never met him but he was getting ready for the show at the grey cup last year in Toronto, my dads work buddy who is a cop told Justin he cant be bringing all these girls down with him to the middle of the field during warm up, Justin walks up to him sucks his teeth and tells him that he’s paying his salary. Then when another officer asked Justin if his daughter could have a picture with him , he says “maybe what does she look like?” .. His daughter was 8.
Anne Hathaway comes to a hotel i used to work for every summer. She is a nasty, waspy, impatient woman who treated our very cordial, and proffesional staff like shit. Even worse was my life long idol Harrison Ford. He is known to be prickly, but god damn even looking that mans way will earn you a death glare that (as a life long fan) just shatters you. On the other hand Tina Fey and her entire family are just lovely lovely people, and her husband takes on the role of comedian when they are in public.
I’m from Wilmington NC. Lived down the street from Michael Jordan’s high school. Have met him most recently outside of Buffalo Wild Wings. He was an asshole each time.
My mum owns owns a cafe called Ampersand, it’s in Paddington, Sydney, a pretty trendy, upscale area with quite a few fashion boutiques with a few arty hotels around.
Ashton Kutcher and Milan Kunis were staying in the hotel across the road from my mums cafe, I was working one weekend when they came in the Saturday morning. Mila orders for the both of them, in trackies and seeming a bit hungover and she was amazing, incredibly nice, polite, talkative. You order at a counter and go sit down, she didn’t mind they took a table outside with people gaping that they were there.
Mind you this whole time Ashton has not said one word just looked grumpy as fuck, sunnies and hat on also looking like he just got out of bed. 5mins after taking a seat 2 local girls come up, Ashton and Mila are not really talking(she was laying back against a wall eyes sorta closed relaxing.) the girls say sorry for disturbing them but could they please get a autograph from one of there favourite couples? I was just bringing there coffees out as this was happening. Mila opens her eyes and leans forward as if to grant the request, smiling, when suddenly Ashton growls and not quietly “Fuck off, we’re trying to have breakfast in peace”. I couldn’t believe it, the girls run off, Milas shocked but just shakes her head and leans back again. I spend the next 10mins trying to decide whether to hock in his breakfast or not…..
Met Bruce Willis once on set for live free or die hard. He was a cunt.
John DiMaggio 😦 went to a convention, walked up to shake his hand and get a signature on something I took hours to draw. He didn’t call me up when I was next, he just stared. I showed him my drawing and he said “oh that’s cool, what do you want?” I asked him to sign it and he threw his pens in his bag and said “sorry, I have to go do a panel.” I was really upset, especially because he sat there 10 more minutes chatting with his agent. Still love what he’s done, but lost a lot of respect for him.
This isn’t going to surprise anybody, but KIM KARDASHIAN. Sat next to her at a Nets game when she was dating Blake Griffin, and she looked at me for like 30 sec/ a minute, shot me this look and said nothing. I never asked her for a pic, autograph or anything. Never even said a word to her. Ice bitch.
Not me, but, my friend went to the Price Is Right in L.A. about 10 years ago or so when the old host Bob Barker was still running the show. He said he finally got a seat and was stoked to be only a few rows from the front. He said that during the show, ole Bob was a saint, aka the one you see on TV, but as soon as the cameras cut to commercial, ole Bobby was a fuckin asshole.
Said he was hitting on any hot chicks in the audience with an offer to come on to stage in exchange for a date along with other shitty comments when they turned him down, generally being rude to all the other employees and other folks on the show, cussing at folks in the audience, etc. Never would have imagined it out of the persona he displayed on air. Short story shorter, Bob Barker is an asshole.
Sofia Vergara is tiny and not that good looking in person. She didn’t even smile during the picture.
Celebrities are assholes until the cameras turn off and the lights stop flashing…then they beg for your attention.
