10 Celebrity Philanthropists Whose Charities Landed Them in Hot Water

Surprise! Bono’s not as squeaky-clean as his humanitarian image suggests. The Irish rocker provided a strongly worded defense of his use of offshore accounts to the Observer yesterday, dismissing critics of his bald-faced tax evasion as “the cranky left.” In fact, Bono argues, his finances are in line with the Irish government’s longstanding goal of “tax competitiveness.” Bono’s flawless liberal credentials have also come under fire for exacerbating Africa’s reliance on foreign aid, bringing his image as one of the world’s most vocal humanitarians into question. But Bono’s far from the first famous philanthropist who’s failed to put his money where his mouth is. Here’s our list of celebrities whose charities haven’t done quite as much good as one would hope. … Read More

Clever Instagram User Photoshops Himself Into Celebrity Snapshots

People have been photoshopping themselves into celebrity photos ever since it was possible, but let’s be real: not many of us are good at it. This is probably why sites like The Daily Dot and Gizmodo are so taken with Instagram user Peeje T, who photoshops himself into celebrity photos with nary a stray pixel. His creations range from straightforward to completely absurd, and you can almost believe he’s sitting with Rihanna at a basketball game until you see him give her a piggyback ride at the Kentucky Derby. He always tags his culprits in his posts, so it wouldn’t be surprising to see one of them call him up to capitalize on his growing buzz. If they do, it would be virtually impossible to tell the resulting Instagrams apart from Peeje T’s doctored images. Click through to see a selection of his best work. … Read More

A Brief Timeline of Kanye West’s Ploys for Attention

It’s not news to anyone that Kanye West is one of the most egomaniacal, attention-hungry stars of our day. Not that there’s necessarily anything wrong with that — in a lot of ways, it just comes with the territory, and it’s part of the Kanye package we all know and (to varying degrees) love. With the recent release of “Theraflu,” in which Kanye talks about his affection for his oft-rumored love interest Kim Kardashian, the critics are abuzz with questions — is this real, or yet another ploy for attention from two celebrities famous for their love of the spotlight? We’re not sure, but so we can all get a little perspective on the topic, we’ve put together a little retrospective of Kanye’s attention-grabbing antics for your reminiscing pleasure. Click through to see a very brief timeline, and let us know if we missed your favorite controversy in the comments. … Read More

Who Are the 10 Most Overexposed Celebrities?

Forbes is always good for a ranking of some aspect of fame you’d think would be entirely impossible to measure. So it was with great interest that we read through their list of the most overexposed celebrities, the result of an E-Poll Research study, and found many of the usual suspects: two Jersey Shore cast members, Lindsay Lohan, all three Kardashians, including Kim at #1. What we didn’t expect to find were so many former tabloid staples whose, er, star has already pretty much fallen: the Octomom, Paris Hilton, Levi Johnston, and Kate Gosselin. Also worth wondering is why a whopping eight out of the top ten are women, especially considering that Charlie Sheen didn’t make the cut. Check out the list after the jump, and visit Forbes for more details on the results. … Read More
