Celeb Slam - (03-23-2016)

Wizard Katt

Over the years here at Celebrity Slam, we've occasionally had famous people go on extended runs of Slam-worthy brilliance. For weeks or even months at a time, these people would constantly stoke the boiler of our derision and mockery.

Think Charlie Sheen's weeks of goddesses, tiger blood and winning. Think Randy Quaid's furtive time as a fugitive and escape to Canada. Think Justin Bieber's, I don't know, 2014? These are the kinds of runs we're talking about. These are the people who reach that magical 'capable of anything' place.

And it seems like Katt Williams might cut in line.

Celeb Slam - (03-09-2016)

Nude beef

So despite our best efforts to spend a little more time separate from our good friends the Kardashians, good old Kim simply won't let us quit her. It had been, what, a couple of weeks since we mentioned her or her family in this space? Honestly, we'd love to leave it alone, but she makes it impossible.

More monkey business

As anyone who reads this space with regularity is aware, we're not at all averse to going for the low-hanging fruit. Sure, we could dig a little deeper in our quest to scorn and deride the failings of the famous, but really why bother? There are plenty of celebs who are more than happy to provide a nigh-constant stream of misdeeds and faux pas.

One of our all-time favorites is Justin Bieber. The Biebs has been providing fodder for this feature for what seems like forever; he's definitely earned a place on the Celebrity Slam Mount Rushmore. So what is Bieber doing now to warrant our interest?

No one will believe you

You might have heard about a whole bunch of business involving Kanye West and his new album, about his apparently massive debts and a stinging lyric about Taylor Swift. Honestly, it's kind of in the Celebrity Slam wheelhouse - we've made a lot of hay with Yeezus and his shenanigans over the years and this is more of the same. Truthfully, if we wanted to change the name of this space to 'Kanye Slam,' we could probably still manage our weekly output just fine.

But rather than contribute even further to the steady creep of Kanye Fatigue, we thought we'd make mention of another celebrity, one whose behavior is the sort of odd that rarely gets him mentioned in this space.

Celeb Slam - (02-10-2016)

The real McCoy

When it comes to Celebrity Slam, we tend to focus more on the world of entertainment. Musicians, actors, reality stars those are the famous folks who usually wind up in our particular spotlight.

However, there's no disputing the fact that athletes are entertainers in their own right. And while their names might not be quite as widely familiar as those of the stars of stage, screen and song, that doesn't mean that they aren't pretty darned famous.

So when they do idiotic things, well it's only right that we're there to give them the business.

Chief Keef beef?

One of the marvelous things about social media is that it provides a much quicker and easier way for celebrities to reach out and connect with their fans. Unfortunately for the famous folks and fortunately for us here at Celebrity Slam it also provides a much quicker and easier way for those same celebrities to say and do the kinds of ridiculous things that land them in this space.

Our latest contestant is rapper Chief Keef.

The hip-hop star recently took to Twitter to exact some sort of revenge on someone who has apparently wronged him. He posted a street address in Minneapolis and invited his followers of which there are more than a million to 'throw eggs and st in a bag and rocks and all that and Ima repost it.'

Crazy in B.o.B.-flat

Sometimes, filling this space can be tough. The foibles of the rich and famous don't operate on any sort of timetable. As delightful as it would be to be able to control the whens and wheres of celebrity missteps, things simply don't work that way. We must sit and wait patiently and hope that someone somewhere will say or do something worthy of our scorn and derision.

However, there are some weeks when a beautiful piece of celebrity lunacy springs forth fully-formed as if leaping from the head of a pop culture Zeus. Those weeks are the best weeks. Thanks to hip-hop artist B.o.B., this is one such week. Why?

Celebrity Slam - (01-20-2016)

Backstreet brawler

We have a lot of fun with famous folks in this space, but we're always going to hold a special place in our hearts for the has-beens. These are the people who are willing to do whatever is necessary to retain some semblance of fame, whether it's continuing to release albums that no wants to buy or participating in the increasingly inaccurately-titled 'Dancing with the Stars.'

While it is certainly fun to take the biggest of big names to task, there's something magical about those who, despite having largely receded into the shadows, still get up to the dizzying heights of superstar idiocy.

Pyramid scheme

It's no secret that there are a handful of famous people who get targeted in this space significantly more often than most. These are the celebrities who can always be relied upon to make bad choices and say unfortunate things and generally just make themselves look clueless and/or delusional.

One of our all-time favorites is Justin Bieber. The Biebs is an ideal subject for Celebrity Slam, a perfect storm of too-early fame, outsized ego and youthful idiocy. In years past, he's provided a lot of fodder. However, it was starting to look like Justin was starting to grow up a little perhaps we would have to move on to greener, more Slammable pastures.

Happily, this turns out not to be the case.

Celebrity Slam - March 12th, 2014

Heeeere's Johnny!

Like it or not, we live in a world where celebrity can be gained through nothing more than filming yourself getting busy. The number of 'sex tape celebrities' out there is too numerous to count; it seems like every time you turn around, some D-lister or another won't shut up about how a video has been 'leaked' often to the tune of six figures. It has become a shortcut to the spotlight, creating or reigniting careers that probably shouldn't exist in the first place.
