We may think that celebrities are perfect. We may think they have it all together. We think that they are confident and popular and absolutely perfect, right? They look perfect and they act perfect and they always say and do the right thing. They never let things get to them and they live their life to the fullest. We think that everyone loves them and would die to talk to them or be next to them. Well, we are really really wrong. Celebrities are not perfect at all. In fact, they are far from perfect. And 2017 proved that not only are they not perfect, but they can be awkward AF. Here are some celebrity moments from 2017 that are so awkward, it actually hurts.
For example, do you remember when Kesha tried to give Jerry Seinfeld a hug and he flat out ran away from her? She tells him that she loves him and he actually looked scared. Poor Kesha! Hasn't she been through enough? Give her a hug! She obviously needs it.
Or how about when Jonathon Bennett, who played Aaron Samuels in Mean Girls, didn't recognize Lindsay Lohan in a picture. Hello! SHE WAS THE LEAD IN MEAN GIRLS! A movie that I am sure you have seen a million times because you were in it! He takes the photo out of the interviewer's hands and is like, "Oh yeah. That is Lindsay." AWKWARD!
Or when Rita Ora thought it would be fun to prank Germany's version of The Voice and go in as a contestant for the blind auditions. She sang one of her own singles, "Your Song" and while the judges did turn around for her and praised her performance, they had no idea who she was and told her that she sounds "almost exactly like the original recording." Almost! She had to tell them that she actually was Rita Ora and to make matters worse, Rita was a judge in The Voice: UK. Get it together people!
In October, Fifth Harmony was performing in Argentina on their PSA tour. They were in the middle of performing, "All In My Head (Flex)" when their opener, Becky G, ran onstage for a planned performance with the girls. She was stopped by security and pulled off the stage. Hello!? She just opened for them!
Here was another totally awkward Ellen moment but this time is wasn't Ellen making us cringe. Jessica Simpson's interview on Ellen is so hard to watch... but you just have to watch it because it is beyond cringeworthy.
Kelly Clarkson went on the TODAY show and had fun with Hoda and a few other celebrity moms and played a special mom version of "Never Have I Ever". When Hoda asked "Never have I ever misplaced a noisy toy" Kelly thought that she was talking about a vibrator. AWKWAAAARRRRDDDDD. Laugh it off ladies, laugh it all.
9. When Megyn Kelly Asked Jane Fonda About Her Plastic Surgery
As if we didn't already know that Jane Fonda was the queen. When Megyn Kelly asked Jane Fonda about her plastic surgery during an interview, Jane Fonda may it pretty clear that she was there to talk about work and not her face. She also made it pretty damn clear that Megyn should stay in her lane.
10. When Celebrity Chef Giada De Laurentiis And Nicole Kidman Got Into It On 'Ellen'
If you haven't watched this very awkward cooking segment on Ellen you are missing out. The shade is so thick between Nicole Kidman and celebrity Chef Giada De Laurentiis that you could cut it with a knife. Kidman actually spits out her food at one point.
11. The Reunion Of Miley And Demi At The Women's March
On a special show where celebrities wished Kathy Lee Gifford a happy birthday, Tina Fey went a different route. After Kathy Lee Gifford complained that Tina Fey wouldn't come on their show just a few days before, Tina Fey sent a message back. She even bets $100 that she has been on the show and she was... just 2 years before Kathy complained that she hadn't. Oops.
This one was super awkward for both Justin and Selena and really all of us. Could you imagine waking up and seeing naked pictures of your ex on your own Instagram account? It's like, "I didn't do that! Wait, did I?"
JUSTIN!!!! GET IT TOGETHER!!!!!! When you don't remember the words to your own verse of "Despacito' you deserve a water bottle to the head. Well, not really but maybe you should learn the lyrics? Just a suggestion, but you do you boo boo.
