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!

Farting seems to be a rather integral part of Katy Perry‘s life. Lady Gaga‘s Alejandro video premiered yesterday and Miz Perry took to her Twitter to reprimand, “Using blasphemy as entertainment is as cheap as a comedian telling a fart joke.” And now fiance Russell Brand, gives the statement a lot more pong, saying that Perry herself is a “flatulence factory”.
He was on Nick Cannon‘s Rollin’ radio show this morning, and revealed some facts we’re guessing he’s going to be in a lot of trouble for. “That woman is like a flatulence factory,” he said adding, “The pop hits that she fires out of her mouth are nothing compared to what comes out the other end of her!”
He also went on to say that he’s sick of her spreading rumours about him and that everything she says is a lie. Brand insists he can’t retaliate without looking like the bad guy. He stated, “Don’t trust that woman. You know what women are! You can’t trust them. She’s a bad person! She goes around spreading rumours about me and I have to go clean up the mess afterwards! I don’t know if your woman does the same thing. She says a lot of freaky sutff, and out of respect, I can’t really play by the same rules!”
And Nick Cannon agreed saying wifey Mariah Carey often does the same. She apparently got into the habit of calling up his radio show to reveal humiliating fiction about his life. He empathized, “I’m right there with you. I thank you for clearing that up. My wife actually calls in to radio station and disguises her voice and calls in and says that I love porn, and crazy things like that so I’m right there with you. I feel your pain!”
They decided to retaliate. The plan is to make up some rumors about Perry and Carey! While Brand wanted to fib saying they liked going to illegal dog fights, Nick took it up a notch. He said, “Let’s start some rumours about Mariah and Katy – that would be hot!” You two realise that you’ve got to go home to them, right?
