Kanye Vs. Bush! Supermodels In Blackface! 10 Uncomfortably Racial Moments In Pop Culture

Kanye West Claudia Schiffer Lebron James Vogue

There’s a lot of racist ish going on. From Paula Deen to the Philadelphia Eagles player Riley Cooper’s N-word rant, folks are losing their minds! In the wake of this, let’s look at some of the most cringeworthy racial moments in recent history — not outright hateful ones like these, just grimace-y situations that you sort of wish hadn’t happened. (Remember Mitt Romney posing for a pic with black kids and asking, for no reason, “Who let the dogs out?” Like that). Enjoy!

Celebrities Get On The Phone For Nashville

60473088

Unless you were watching the Great American Country Network last night,  you probably missed the telethon to benefit flood relief in Nashville. The “Music City Keep On Playin’” benefit featured dozens of stars like Keith Urban, Nicole Kidman, Brad Paisley and the members of Lady Antebellum manning the phone lines and performing to raise money rebuild Nashville after portions of the city were destroyed by flooding two weeks ago. Torrential downpours caused over $1 billion in damage to the city and its inhabitants, and the telethon managed to raise $1.7 million.  (To make a $10 donation yourself, you can text  “GAC” to 501501.) In the meantime, take a look at our gallery of famous folks using landlines (an unusual sight these days) to help out Music City.

Carrie, Taylor Rock The Country Music Awards

Carrie Underwood

As the photo of Carrie Underwood and her scantily clad back-up dancers suggests, last night’s Country Music Awards wasn’t your daddy’s Country Music Awards, though he might have enjoyed it anyway. The singer, co-hosting with Brad Praisley, wore even more ensembles than she did at the ACM Awards last April, making sure to perform an acoustic duet with Paisley to reaffirm she hasn’t gone full Britney Spears. But it was Taylor Swift who was the big winner, taking home all four of the awards she was nominated for, beating Underwood (who won the last three years) for Best Female Singer and becoming the youngest person to ever win Entertainer Of The Year. Darius Rucker took home New Artist Of The Year, reaffirming that we can’t call him Hootie anymore. The youth revolution may be a short one, though—Shania Twain and Garth Brooks are planning comebacks next year.
