Oh, ratchet white folks. Just this past Sunday, Miley Cyrus pissed off and scared a whole bunch of soccer moms all over the country when she dropped it low multiple times in skimpy costumes at the VMAs. And while I can admit that all that tongue sticking out and rubbing up on Robin Thicke (and herself) was obnoxious, baby girl isn’t the first white girl or guy to go completely buckwild in an attempt to be taken seriously or to simply get attention. Mother Madonna might have been the first to dry hump a stage on TV, and Miley might be just another to stick up a middle-foam finger to it, but they sure won’t be the last. Here are 10 famous white folks who got a little ratchet to get a little more famous.
Remember when Christina Aguilera was going by Xtina? Yeah, it was around the release of her second album, Stripped, and that’s exactly what she did–stripped down. A**less chaps became her favorite pants and she truly looked a tad bit “Dirrty” like her song every time we saw the star who once played innocent for “Genie In A Bottle.” She has since left the ratchetry behind and maintained great success, though she tried to bring it back around for the Bionic album when she was trying to push this random appreciation of that BDSM life. Unfortunately, the whole ratchet thing was a massive fail the second time around.
