What were these celebrities thinking when they made these silly comments? Did they really think the other person would laugh it off or not react. We’re sure they will think twice before they open their big mouths again or do something else outrageous.

Some celebrities just tower over the rest. Standing at 5 feet and 11 inches or more, these 15 women command attention whenever they walk into a room.
Model turned mogul Kimora Lee Simmons put her stature to good use. Standing at an even six feet, Simmons got her start in modeling early on. By the time she was ten years old, Simmons was 5 feet, 10 inches tall. Her mother enrolled her into modeling classes at the age of 11 and soon after Simmons found herself in Paris. Growing up in St. Louis, Missouri, Simmons was picked on because of her ethnicity and height. The 37-year-old mother of three credits modeling with giving her the confidence that she has now: “[Modeling] was a real turning point for me because everything that people considered weird about me before, well, suddenly Karl Lagerfeld said it was OK. He’s one of the biggest names in fashion, so all of a sudden it gave me a validity and introduced me to a whole other world.”

There have been many artists that have crossed over to different music genres for a variety of reasons, but these 15 and their circumstances are among the most interesting. Click on to find out who made the list and why.
From Rap to Reggae
Last month, Snoop Lion (formerly Snoop Dog) released his reggae crossover album titled Reincarnation, which debuted at number 16 on the Billboard charts – miles away from the number 1 spots earned by game changing albums like Doggystyle and Tha Doggfather. But though Reincarnation underperformed – or over performed, depending on who you ask – Snoop has made it very clear that he’s committed to his new sound.
You’ll remember Snoop Lion adopted the moniker after converting to the Rastafari movement and undergoing a mental, spiritual and musical transformation in Jamaica. Alongside the album, he also released a documentary by the same name that captured his journey of renewal.
All songs have a different meaning behind them, but with many songs, there are lyrics and verses that we can all relate to, at least on some level. Most musicians write songs about relatively unknown people, but there are some who’ve put their business with another Hollywood celebrity all out on front street. Here are 15 songs that have been written about or for another celebrity.
“The Light” by Common
At the time that Common wrote his song “The Light,” which was the second released single on his album Like Water for Chocolate, he was dating Erykah Badu. The song is written in love-letter form and the lyrics are a clear portrayal of his love for Erykah. She was even in the music video, which makes it that much more evident that the song was meant for her. Common and Erykah broke up in 2002.
I love my office…for several reasons. It’s black, we get to watch
episodes of Maury the news and we have the most emotionally charged debates about celebrities, the actual news and real life ish. It’s how I’ve always imagined the barbershop to be, except, in our case, the women are the loudest and most aggressive when trying to prove a point. Anyway, one day we were talking about Taylor Swift and her extensive dating history. Everybody had something to say about “America’s Sweetheart.” The general consensus is that no one particularly likes her or thinks she’s exceptionally talented, (we do have one coworker who is like a true Taylor Swift fan) but other than that, the rest of us are underwhelmed. And since most of us don’t really like her, the opinions about her very public love life ran the gamut, from she’s a heaux to she’s just a young girl out here doing what young girls do. You might imagine that the last sentiment came from the lone Taylor fan.
I argued that while Taylor Swift has been linked to a lot of different men, it doesn’t necessarily mean she’s having or had sex with all of them. My other coworker co-signed, adding that even if she had slept with each and every one of them, it doesn’t make her a heaux either. Agreed. We’ve got to get past the policing of other womens’ vadges. But that’s another story for another day.
Call me naive, but I really don’t think Taylor was bustin’ it open for all those men. Call me crazy but it is possible to date someone and not sleep with them. That’s been my experience and I don’t think that because you’re in the public eye that that rule has to change. Sometimes, relationships just aren’t that serious. My coworker didn’t agree. “Who just dates knowing that the relationship isn’t going to go anywhere?” I just raised my eyebrows. Tons of people do. I, myself, am currently in a relationship that I’m pretty sure is not going to go anywhere. (And I feel comfortable writing about the publicly because I’ve told the person that I’m seeing this very thing.)
But there was a time when I wasn’t so comfortable with the fact that the relationship was inevitably going to be short lived. You know the media, old Disney movies, your friends, the internet and a whole bunch of people in between will have you believe that your sole purpose in dating is to find the one, your soulmate, Mr. Right etc. Rarely, do people tell you or encourage you to date to have fun, to get to know people or to learn what you do and don’t want in future relationships. So, in my own relationship, once I realized that this wouldn’t be a forever type of arrangement, I panicked. Do I have to “break up” with him now? Am I leading him on? Am I going to hurt his feelings?
All these questions. But at the same time I didn’t want to stop seeing him altogether either. He’s respectful and I enjoy the time I spend with him. Because we had both agreed, on a couple of different occasions, that it wasn’t serious and neither one of us should expect anything from it. I just wanted things to continue as they’d been going even though I knew and still know that it won’t last forever.
It wasn’t until I read this passage from Iyanla Vanzant’s In The Meantime: Finding Yourself and the Love You Want that I learned to be at peace with the whole thing:
“You can have meantime relationships. Relationships that are fun, satisfying, or fulfilling for now. You do not enter meantime relationships in need. You enter them as a choice. You know this is not the forever one, but it is the one for now. A meantime relationship should not deplete you. It should give you something to do, keep your spirits up, and help you prepare yourself for a greater experience. You will know that you are in a meantime relationship if you like the person but you don’t like them enough to lend them your car. If you enjoy spending time with them, but you cannot see yourself sitting in a rocking chair sharing your Jell-O with this person. In a meantime relationship, sexual activity is your call, but less is more. If you recognize that you are in a meantime relationship, relax and enjoy it. Do not invest your life’s savings- meaning you should not order the wedding rings or print the invitations. Face the truth! Know what you know! Accept the fact that the relationship you want is being prepared, like dinner. In the meantime, have a light snack.”
I can’t really say it much better than that. Iyanla is my girl because she illustrates the solutions to life’s dilemmas with such clarity. She let me know that since I had honestly expressed my feelings and intentions, I didn’t have to stress myself out about this relationship. You don’t have to go into every relationship expecting the man to be the one. As long as he respects you and you enjoy being around him, it’s alright for him to be the one right now.
Get It How You Live: Are We Too Quick To Judge Other Women For Dating As Many Men As They Can And Please?
While going around the Internet being nosy for news, I couldn’t help but notice that Taylor Swift of all people has found herself, or better yet, put herself, in the middle of what some might call a beef with funny ladies Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. If you remember, Fey and Poehler killed as hosts of the Golden Globes in January, and during the show, Fey made a joke at the expense of Swift by saying that the superstar country/pop singer needed to keep her paws away from Michael J. Fox’s son. The joke came soon after Swift’s split with a singer named Harry Styles from the Brit band One Direction, another quick boo-ship gone bad, and though we didn’t get to see her physical reaction via the camera at the Globes, we now know that Swift didn’t take too kindly to the light joke.
In an interview recently with Vanity Fair, Swift was asked about her thoughts on the incident and on the idea of “mean girls,” and she responded by saying the following:
“You know, Katie Couric is one of my favorite people. Because she said to me she had heard a quote that she loved that said, ‘There’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help other women.’”
Despite her innocent looks and child-like performances, Taylor Swift seems like the girlfriend from hell. When it’s over, she writes songs about her exes, picks on them and drags their names through the dirt. Here is a list of 15 famous musicians that would give Taylor a taste of her own medicine if they ever dated.

Here we go again. By now, we should know that we’re never too far away from a Kanye West “episode.”
On Saturday night, he kicked off his back-to-back shows at London’s Hammerstein Apollo. After performing the G.O.O.D Music single, “Clique,” Yeezy decided that it was time to get some things off his chest.
He first discussed how he hates business people and the corporate world because they are wiling to stifle an artist’s creativity just to make a few million dollars. “Remind me again why we in this s**t? Since when was making music about getting rich,” he added.
But that was just the tip of the iceberg.
In what could be used as a double-edged sword, Kanye said:
“Remind me why we in this Isht? And I got love for Hov but I ain’t f**king with that Suit & Tie.”
As we all know, Jay-Z is featured on Justin Timberlake’s new single “Suit & Tie.” In the context of his rant, it is likely that he made the “suit and tie” comment in reference to his sudden disdain of corporations. However, Kanye is not a stupid man so he’s undoubtedly aware that this also comes across as an open “attack” of his friend’s new song.
Apparently, he also hates the foundation that has given him 21 awards: The Grammys. Kanye told the crowd that the Grammys can “suck my d**k” and that he’s “never won a Grammy against a white person.” Now unless he’s talking about winning an award in a non rap category (he would be right in that case), he is wrong because he’s beat both Eminem and The Beastie Boys in the past.
Oh, he’s also not over Taylor Swift beating Beyonce at the MTV Awards years ago. He still believes it is “bulls**t” and that a six year who’s working on their musical craft will be discouraged because someone like Swift (who he is saying is less talented) will always come out on top.
Finally, in response to President Obama calling him a jackass, Kanye replied, “I don’t give a f**k what none of the presidents got to say!”
At some point during the first video, he starts yelling uncontrollably, saying:
“Real [n-word] don’t live too long in this Shyte. They say you coming on too strong in this Isht. They always talking about I’m doing wrong in this Isht. I could give a f**k about…! Remind me why we in this Isht! I lost my muthaf**king mama! So I could a Fawk about your comments, I promise!”
On Twitter, fans who attended the concert tweeted that the rant brought down the energy of what was otherwise a great show. His rant just never seemed to end.
People have been saying that Kanye has not been the same since his mother, Dr. Donda West, passed in 2007. Many feel that he has just let his emotions simmer and his music – and personality – has greatly suffered.
One can only wonder how Nike feels about his hatred of corporations and big businesses since they’ve given him a deal to design the Air Yeezy sneakers. There aren’t many major businesses that need any artists to do anything for them so if this continues, Kanye could find himself on the outside looking in trying to figure out where he went wrong.
Check out the videos below for the rants (in the first video, it starts at about 4:10).

What ‘Chu Say Boo? Caption This Pic Of Taylor Swift And Her New Boo–Uh, I Mean Fitness Partner, The Game
Joe, Taylor, John, Jake, Conor, Henry, and now Jayceon!? Hehe, just kidding. But then again, you never know with Taylor Swift, because she stays with a man on her arm.
According to Complex, Taylor Swift met up with the rapper, Game, at the gym as he continues on his 60 Days of Fitness workout mission. Rob Kardashian and even La La Anthony have all taken part in this challenge in the hopes of getting healthy with the rapper, and I guess it was Taylor’s turn this time around. But she sure is dressed up to get her fitness on. Nice jacket though!
Homegirl did a good job of taking the pic without getting too close (check the body language), probably because she heard that Tiffney Cambridge doesn’t play that (you saw that episode of “Married To The Game” with her snapping off about him and his assistant going to France right?), or maybe because she knows his penchant for spitting on folks. And in his gym wear, The Game cheesed it up for the cameras and chucked the deuces at the same time. Nice!
So how would you caption this here pic?
Some women seem incapable of functioning without a man at their side. You know the type: the ones who are always in a relationship, never single, and never trying to be single. I’m not going to say outright that this is a sign of insecurity, but I’ve always been one to believe that time alone is good for us ladies, especially if we’ve just gotten out of a relationship. Though some women may agree with me, clearly these 15 do not. And while their levels of desperation may vary, they all seem just as intent on being in a relationship, no matter the cost.
Is there a waiting list to date this woman because I can hardly remember a time when Jennifer Lopez was ever single. She had married and divorced actor Ojani Noa by 1998, then dated and broke up with Diddy by 2001, married second husband Cris Judd in 2001, but before divorcing him became romantically involved with Ben Affleck in 2002 only to be dumped by him before their supposed wedding, then she married (2004) and divorced (2011) Marc Anthony before finally meeting current boyfriend Casper Smart in 2011… and these are just the men we know about!
J.Lo is fabulous and all, but if things go south with Casper she may want to take a moment to be single and just breathe, or something.
