Everyone loves to hate on celebrities! After all, how else are we going to feel better about ourselves when we make mistakes if we don’t see examples of others making mistakes that are ten times worse? Well, guess what? Sometimes it starts to get a little repetitive constantly ragging on the same celebrities, especially when the situation might not be as bad as it seems. Let’s have a look at some celebrities who deserve a break…not all the time, but at least sometimes…

Bobby Brown

It seems like everyone always wants to blame Bobby Brown for introducing Whitney Houston to drugs, but now that it has officially been revealed that it was  Whitney’s brother who introduced her, it’s time to cut him some slack. Don’t take this the wrong way, yes he did do a lot to Whitney in their tumultuous 14-year marriage, but it’s time to acknowledge that he is not the one primarily responsible for her drug addiction. Bobby Brown was indeed telling the truth when he claimed he never introduced Whitney to drugs.

Rihanna petty much gets haters no matter what she does…for her revealing photos, to her pot smoking antics, and of course, for rekindling her previously abusive relationship with Chris Brown. Overall, she’s just a terrible role model. However, it is her most recent appearance at the Grammys, which is why she makes the list.  Not only did she look absolutely gorgeous, she had two amazing performances. She pretty much reminded the audience that sometimes we should just sit back and enjoy the music instead of always finding something to criticize about the artist.

Kanye West

Let’s face it Kanye West has a big mouth. He just speaks his mind and stands up for what he believes in. Think about it though, does Kanye go around calling people ugly or verbally abusing people? Nope, any controversial comments he makes are for situations that he truly feels wronged or standing up for others he feels have been treated badly. There’s nothing wrong with standing up for what you believe in, unfortunately for Kanye, sometimes it comes out at the wrong time or in the wrong way…

Taylor Swift

Yes, Taylor Swift seems to move very “swiftly” from man to man, and has received an enormous amount of flack for her serial dating ways from media, celebrities, and fans. She also does have a tendency to write about her ex-boyfriends in her music, which has also created some backlash. When you really think about it, this is what people do all the time, so why is it bad when she does it? There is nothing wrong with dating around until she finds the right one; she is only 23 after all. On top of that, how many musicians don’t write music about their relationships? Not very many…

Kris Humphries

Yes, anyone who steps near the Kardashians will definitely receive some flack for it. Even Kanye West’s popularity has decreased since Kim Kardashian got pregnant. Sadly, for Kris Humphries, his entire reputation is tarnished because of his 72-day marriage to Kim. Yes, it seems he’s being a complete jerk for asking for an annulment, however, if my reputation was completely tarnished over something similar, I would want to pretend as if it never happened too.

Halle Berry

Yes, Halle Berry does seem a little cray cray sometimes, especially with all her relationship drama being displayed publicly for the entire world to see. However, at the end of the day, no one really knows what went down between she and former boyfriend Gabriel Aubry, and therefore we still don’t have a right to judge her.

Stacey Dash

As much as it seems weird that any black person would support Mitt Romney or any other Republican, every American is entitled to there opinion and it is there legal right to vote for whomever they want. Perhaps she doesn’t view policies in terms of how they affect races differently, and rather views them in terms of people regardless of race. Either way, people should respect that she is entitled to her opinion.

Kim Kardashian

Even though the only talent that Kim Kardashian has is in the bedroom, she’s definitely proven exactly why she deserves to be famous. The fact that millions tune in to watch her reality shows and thousands buy her products prove that she’s in demand. If so many people continue to support her, there must be something good about her being famous…

Nicki Minaj

This question has been asked over and over again…”Why is Nicki Minaj a judge on American idol?” It’s a reasonable question too, after all, it is a singing a competition and Nicki Minaj is technically not a singer. However, if you were in her position, would you turn down millions of dollars because despite you still being a musican you are not as credible as some of the other judges? Probably not!

Michelle Williams

Poor Michelle! She is always the shadow of Beyoncé and Kelly! However, after seeing her performance at the Super Bowl, it’s obvious why she’s always in their shadows! Her dancing definitely brought down the performance, and fans wasted no time in criticizing her.  The fans, however, need to put the whole thing in perspective, Beyoncé and Kelly will obviously be better because they spend more time performing that style of music, whereas Michelle has focused on gospel music and Broadway production since the Destiny’s Child break up.

    I think we need to eliminate the ‘Role model’ status being applied to celebs. How is Rihanna a ‘bad role model’ but NO ONE ever calls out Chris Brown for being a terrible role model to the mostly young girls who adore him?? I think it is a ridiculous term and is often only applied to female stars. So it’s sexist in a way to have these female stars behaviour dissected and pulled apart and when they falter or act human in some way, we then berate them and say they are ‘Bad role models’. MALE celebrities are NEVER called out in this way.

    Why is it when you don’t like or disagree with somebody its hate. I don’t care for Rhianna because I saw a video of her chastising her band. This was coming from somebody who cannot sing. The hypocrisy.


      She ‘Can’t sing’ in accordance to you but that band owe their employment status to her. So, as far as she is the one paying their salary, if things don’t sound right or don’t go right, she is the one who will be criticized. As a result she can chastise all she wants. I would imagine if it were a male artist who, say for arguments sake happened to sing like crying cats, and he called out his band for whatever reason, doubt people would complain.

      • The problem is a lot of celebrities think they don’t have to respect the “little people” bc they are rich and famous. I have had plenty of jobs and never has a boss ever talked to new the way some of These celebs talk to there staff.

  • Ms. Bee

    besides Michelle Williams, everyone on this list deserves every bit of shade they get. Keri Hilson is about the only other celeb I can think of that gets unnecessary hate thrown her way.

    She shaded Beyonce, though. Yeah, I hate Keri. Nvm.

  • bigdede

    This list makes no sense. Bobbie Brown isn’t getting any hate. People have tried to be on Bobbie’s side but HE is the one who is still drunk driving. He is the one who is still not getting his life right. Everyone knows Bobbie didn’t put the crack pipe in Whitney’s mouth. As for Ri Ri, I really doubt anyone would say anything about her if SHE didn’t publish half naked photos of herself on twitter everyday. SHE is the one telling every magazine about her love with Chris Brown. She puts her business out there for people to react to. So if people react to it negatively, that’s her fault. Kanye always comes off as a spoiled brat when he does his rants. Just listen to his last one. He sounded jealous that Jay was doing business with JT. Stacy Dash. SHE is the one putting herself out there support Romney but yet couldn’t come up with one single real reason as to why. Why you start campaigning for someone, you should expect a backlash. No one is hating on these people. They put themselves and their business out their willingly. If people react to it negatively, that’s not hating, that’s having an opinion. Don’t put your business out there for people to say anything about!
