Why do you watch award ceremonies? For me, it’s the fancy, dramatic outfits. I am always looking to see who is best dressed. It is not always about the celebrities complimenting each other or giving sweet acceptance speeches that very few people remember afterward.
Do you know what more fun is? Awkward but hilarious moments; those moments when someone does or says something funny intentionally or unintentionally. Let me share 17 of such awkward but hilarious celebrity moments with you.
Fergie Peed On Stage
Fergie herself described this incident as “the most unattractive moment” of her life. This infamous incident with the Black Eyed Peas happened over a decade ago when she accidentally wet herself on stage.
According to her, “I’m running on, and we jump and do ‘Let’s Get It Started,’ and I get crazy and I jump, and I run across the stage, and my adrenaline was going, and gosh, I wish it didn’t happen. It was so embarrassing!”
Well, some of us have been there.
Sharon Osbourne Loses A Tooth In The Middle Of A Talk Show
In 2014, Sharon Osbourne’s front tooth fell out during a live taping of her show, The Talk. She was discussing a new topic with her co-stars on the show when she notices one loose tooth. Next, she goes, “Oh sh**! My tooth is falling off!” Lol.
As she pulls it out, she says:
“Oh, no problem, It’s one of those implants. It’s an implant! And I spent a bloody fortune on this f***ing thing and it’s falling out! What do I do? No seriously, has anyone got any glue? Can we take an emergency tooth break?”
Funny woman. Love how she humorously handled that on the live show.
Julianne Hough’s Blackface Halloween Costume
The American dancer donned face paint and wore an orange jumpsuit to portray Orange Is the New Black character, Crazy Eyes, at a party in 2013. It turned out to be a wrong choice of costume as she received public backlash for it.
She claimed that she donned the look because she is a huge fan of Crazy Eyes, a character played by Uzo Aduba, a black woman. Many took offense because they believed Hough’s action to be disrespectful and demeaning.
Katherine Heigl’s Wardrobe Malfunction
The Grey’s Anatomy star suffered a wardrobe malfunction at the ShoWest Awards in Las Vegas when she was named Female Star of the Year. Just as she accepts her award, the strap of her dress comes loose.
Thanks to her quick reflexes and the presence of Billy Bush, who made sure her dress did not hit the floor.
Ashley Benson’s Fall
The Pretty Little Liars star experienced one of those ‘I want the ground to open and swallow me up’ moments when she tumbled outside a Hollywood Bar. She could not even blame it on her shoes as she was in comfortable boots.
Ashley graciously accepted that embarrassing fall by laughing at herself as she fell and even at the paparazzi that was quick to capture the moment on camera.
Danni Minogue Steps On Her Own Dress
Not only does she trip, she even lands on her bottom! In 2012, while exiting the launch of her new fashion collection in London, the TV star turned designer’s foot got caught in her floor-length, sequined dress.
Well, she managed to look graceful even while falling, and are we not glad that she landed on her bottom instead of her face?
Bald Britney Spears
In 2007, Britney Spears marched into a salon and shaved her hair off. She was in the middle of a harrowing breakdown which almost everyone was aware of. This image is one of the most tragic from those times.
It was really awkward seeing her that way. But, as with everyone who has been through or is going through a mental breakdown, these things happen.
Mo’nique’s Hairy Legs On The Red Carpet
She exposed her unshaved legs on the red carpet, and it was not much of a surprise. Mo’Nique has always been open about her decision not to use a razor on her legs.
Well, many might not hit a major event like the Golden Globes without shaving their legs but Mo’Nique just didn’t care.
Justin Bieber Gets Handsy
This picture shows Justin Bieber getting handsy with a few of his fans. What is that third image?!
When Gravity Is At It Again
Vanessa Anne Hudgens Left The Tag On
Trying to hide from the paparazzi while out on a date with their boyfriend, Hudges turns her back on them. If only she had known, she would have faced them head-on.
That single act gave away the fact that she was wearing new jeans, especially as the tag was still on. Some made a joke out of it, saying that she probably had the intention to return the jeans.
Justin Timberlake And Mila Kunis On Stage
It was pretty awkward yet funny to some when Justin Timberlake groped Mila Kunis’ boobs at the 2007 MTV Movie Awards. Mila Kunis cupped his genitals in response. Eww! Or maybe it’s just me.
Jennifer Lawrence Trips At The Oscars
On her way to receive her award for Best Actress at the 2013 Oscars, Jennifer Lawrence tripped and fell while taking the stairs. It must have been really awkward for her.
It is actually hilarious that she tripped again at the same event the following year even before the event started.
Must We Kiss?
In the 2003 Oscars, Brody forced a kiss on Halle Berry, who at the time was a presenter at the event. After the passionate kiss, he joked, saying, “I bet they didn’t tell you that was in the gift bag.” It might have been fun for him but definitely awkward for Halle.
Nicki Minaj desperately trying to keep her body from being exposed at the 2014 VMAs was a shocking experience for those in the audience. The dress was supposed to be zipped up, but they ran out of time to do so before her performance, Nicki explains.
That Awkward Moment Between Ariana Grande and Ian Somerhalder
Today on Don’t-try-to-surprise-kiss-anyone brings Ian Somerhalder and Ariana Grande to mind. At the 2014 Teen Choice Awards, he tried to kiss her out of the blue, and she awkwardly tried to avoid that. That must have been embarrassing for him.
Jon Hamm Crawls On Stage
After being nominated for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series seven years in a row, Jon Hamm finally won the award in 2015 at the Emmy Awards. To accept his award, he crawled on stage. According to him, he was trying to make a hilarious joke of climbing on stage.
