At some point we all suffer moments so painfully uncomfortable that we wish we could bore into our brains and suck out the memory with a shop-vac. But at least the cameras aren’t rolling when ours happen, unlike these unfortunate celebs. While memories may fade, video clips never do. That’s bad luck for them, but endlessly amusing for the rest of us.
Last Friday night The Short List train barreled on with the 10 Most Awkward Celebrity Moments. There were so many to choose from that we decided to chime in with a just-as-short-list of our own. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll cringe, and for once you’ll be glad you’re not to be rich and famous. See if your favorite moment made the cut!

Oh, Twitter. We knew the day would come when you would be used for more than just updates about what we’re eating and trying to come up with the funniest hashtag category. But just as people have been drunk-dialing and drunk-texting for ages now, the drunk Tweet is proving to be the next big, bad thing and might even help get people into real trouble. Take Bow Wow, for instance. He wrote a series of Tweets late last Friday, which have all since been removed from his Twitter page, admitting he was drinking while driving his Lamborghini (or Lambo, if you’re in the know) in Miami and partying with that other stronghold of judgment and character, Chris Brown.
“Im bout to be f*cked up n drunk tweeting. Im saying sorry now for what i might tweet. But f*ck it ! Im young n rich im goin hard 2nite,” Bow Wow wrote, and then followed up by writing “Face numb im whippin the lambo. Tispy as f*ck.” (Tispy as f*ck! That’s going to be a new catchphrase around here, we think.) After a few minutes of tispy driving, he wrote “Im f*cked up!!! Ohhhh damn. Y i drive the lambo. Chris might have to drive after next spot.” Though a valet tried to keep Bow Wow from driving, he was not apprehended or charged with driving under the influence.
Realizing that admitting his illegal and dangerous behavior was a pretty stupid thing to do, he apologized the next day, writing “Apologize for that tweet. it was stupid and immature. not a way i want to kick my #2010 year off. i got too much good stuff lined up. my bad”. Well as long as he apologized for it, no harm done, right? [Photo: GettyImages]
