A comeback tour is a big deal. It's supposed to be full of anticipation and excitement and enthusiasm and, in the case of Garth Brooks, a good ol' fashioned tumble. On the second night of Brooks' comeback tour, the singer managed to fall down on stage, knocking his cowboy hat off in the process. It happens.
As someone who has taken a good spill here and there, I can relate to celebrities when they fall on or off a stage during a show. I feel for them... but that doesn't mean I can't smirk when I hear about the mishaps. These are some of the 10 greatest on-stage falls, which we can giggle about, because none of these artists were seriously injured. (I think I'll let these videos speak for themselves.)
#1 - Rihanna
I like Kanye West. I like his music and I miss the days when he was always tweeting on Twitter and I honestly find him endlessly entertaining. But I'd be lying if I didn't admit that Kanye is messy. He's always involved in some kind of controversy. Sometimes I think Kanye's right; sometimes I think he's wrong; and sometimes, I'm just here to be entertained. So here are some of Kanye West's major controversies, starting with one not-so-great one that happened this weekend.
Kanye West vs. Concert Etiquette
Over the weekend, Kanye performed in Sydney, Australia. Before singing his song "Good Life," he wanted everyone in the audience to stand. When two wouldn't, Kanye grew annoyed. "There's literally two people left," Kanye said, according to reports. "This is the longest I’ve had to wait to do a song. ... It’s unbelievable." As it turned out, the two concertgoers in question couldn't stand; one had a prosthetic limb while the other was in a wheelchair. It made for a supremely awkward and unfortunate moment — one which Kanye has yet to apologize for. Yikes.
There's nothing like a great celebrity feud! They're juicy and funny and embarrassing and, sometimes, downright nasty — and they make us all glad we aren't involved. Here are 5 of the greatest celebrity feuds in recent memory.
Taylor Swift vs. Katy Perry
If the rumors are to be believed, Katy Perry and Taylor Swift are feuding, like, right now. Though the two have previously appeared to be on friendly terms — Google "Katy Perry Taylor Swift" and you'll see a slew of images from various outings and award shows — things maybe aren't so great between them. In an interview with Rolling Stone, Taylor Swift talked about "Bad Blood," one of the tracks from her forthcoming album 1989. The single, according to Swift, is about a fellow female artist.
In the interview, Swift said, "For years, I was never sure if we were friends or not. She would come up to me at awards shows and say something and walk away, and I would think, 'Are we friends, or did she just give me the harshest insult of my life?'" But then, last year the unnamed artist did something that made them into "straight-up enemies," Swift said. "And it wasn't even about a guy! It had to do with business. She basically tried to sabotage an entire arena tour. She tried to hire a bunch of people out from under me. And I'm surprisingly non-confrontational — you would not believe how much I hate conflict. So now I have to avoid her. It's awkward, and I don't like it."
People had plenty of guesses about which star Swift was hinting at, until...
Katy Perry sent out this tweet a few hours after Swift's story went live. Could be completely coincidental, but it probably isn't.
