We know there's no explaining attraction, and we know that love is blind, but all of the platitudes in the world can't excuse the train wreck that is a tinsel town mismatch. Top 10 Cringe-Worthy Celeb Hookups
Thank goodness these celebs came to their senses, but unfortunately, the rest of us mere mortals can't get the pairings out of our minds. If only we could give ourselves selective celebrity coupling amnesia. Instead, let's confront the demons head-on. Perhaps this will serve as an exorcism.
The age difference was disturbing. The flamboyant PDA was cringe-worthy. Need we even mention the vials of blood? It's a good thing that an adoption and a sudden interest in philanthropy inspired Angelina to turn over a new leaf with a new man. Brad & Angelina "Claim" They Are Still Together
Talk about dating above your station. She was America's favorite pop princess and he was a backup dancer with illegitimate children. The courtship was quick and the wedding was a classy affair where the bride and groom wore track suits. Since there was no way to know the drama that would follow the breakup—a shaved head, a hospital stay, and various court orders—we all breathed a collective sigh of relief when the two split.
Back in the 1990s, when actor Mark Wahlberg was known as rapper Marky Mark, he allegedly used a slur when referencing someone in Madge's camp. Things got heated and he supposedly punched her manager in the nose. Oh, Mark ... y Mark.
Madge invited the controversial rapper — what's she done lately, though?— to share the stage at her 2012 Super Bowl Halftime performance. During the set, M.I.A. gave the finger to the camera. Yeah, so that was how she repaid the favor of being asked to perform on the world's biggest stage. Madonna was reportedly not happy about the digital gesture.
Things have always been frosty between the divas, proving that no, there really isn't room for eveyone at the top of the pop music food chain. Madonna reportedly once said that Carey wasn't that bright. Ouch. Then Carey retorted by saying that she hadn't paid attention to Madonna since, like, 7th grade, when Her Madgesty was popular. Ouch x 2. See more here.
The pop icons have been battling for a decade, long before Madge began feuding with his BFF and baby godmama Gaga. He supposedly dissed her Bond theme in 2002, compared her to a stripper and accused her lip-synching. John and partner David Furnish also criticized Madge's song "Masterpiece," which won a Golden Globe. What. A. Mess.
One word sums up this feud: "reductive." Madge has constantly trashed Ma Monster, in interviews and onstage, even going as far as to mesh her own "Express Yourself" with Gaga's "Born This Way." Rumor has it that Madge has tried to bury the hatchet a few times and even posted a Gaga x Rebel Heart photo as evidence of such. Oh, when's the duet already?
