10 Famous Musicians Who Are Jerks In Real Life

10. Justin Bieber

Bieber may be lighting up the charts with his latest releases, but the dude makes an ass of himself on the regular and there are numerous examples of this. Number one: He openly videotaped himself pissing in a bucket in a restaurant. How about some legal issues? He had a reckless driving charge in 2012, and he vandalized an area in Brazil in 2013.

9. Ariana Grande

Of everyone on the list, what Grande did was probably the most tame by comparison, but it was such a dick move I need to include her on the list. When Grande was at Wolfee Donuts in California, she decided it would be smart to lick the unattended donuts while also stating how she hates America. While Grande came out and was very apologetic, it makes you wonder what on earth could have been going through her mind. It’s not like there are cameras EVERYWHERE. Nothing says jerk move like screwing with innocent people’s donuts. Maybe it is my extreme love of donuts that lands her on my list, but it still grinds my gears.

8. Kanye West

Kanye West is definitely a unique individual. There is no doubting his talent, but there is also no doubting that the guy is an egotistical dick. The biggest example is when he interrupted Taylor Swift at the VMA’s, but one look at his Twitter feed and you’ll see the numerous beefs that he seems to involve himself in. Given that he is married to Kim Kardashian, the world sees his face enough without him having to be a huge dick about it. Not to mention he’s a self-proclaimed non book-reader, because that’s something to be proud of, right? Knowing him and his ego, he’ll probably just be upset that he isn’t #1 on this list!

7. DMX

X may be what’s gonna give it to you, but that still doesn’t mean it’s a good idea to drive around while drunk or on drugs. DMX was driving his car around Kennedy airport when he crashed his car through a gate. When police investigated the crash, they found crack cocaine in the car. On top of this, when DMX first arrived to the airport he decided it would be a good idea to lie and say he’s a government agent. Imagine someone’s face, especially if they were a huge fan of his music, and here he was trying to convince you that he worked for the government.

6. Chris Brown

Chris Brown could be the most talented musician in the world (which he isn’t) and it still wouldn’t make up for what he did to Rihanna. For those unaware, the two had a relationship that ended after Chris Brown punched and hit Rihanna repeatedly. Rihanna stated in an interview with 20/20 that “She said she was also choked, but not to the point of near unconsciousness, although she said she did have trouble breathing.”

5. Dr. Dre

In 1990, Ice Cube did an interview with Dee Barnes talking about him leaving the N.W.A. The interview was published, but upset members of the N.W.A who felt they were being portrayed in a negative light. When Dr. Dre ran into Barnes at a record release party, he went after her.

4. Ceelo Green 

CeeLo may love singing “F*ck You” but that was also my attitude towards him when I learned more about his sexual assault charge back in 2012. CeeLo was out on a date and slipped his date Ecstasy. The woman woke up the following day with no memory of the night whatsoever, and CeeLo claiming that they had consensual sex.

3. Rick James

It might be fun to yell out “I’m Rick James, Bitch!” but that doesn’t make what Rick James did any funnier. In the 1990s, James had a rampant addiction to cocaine and admitted to spending roughly $7,000 a week for 5 years straight. In 1993, while him and his wife were “accused of holding 24-year-old Frances Alley hostage for up to six days although accounts vary on how long she was actually held, tying her up, forcing her to perform sexual acts, and burning her legs and abdomen with the hot end of a crack cocaine pipe, during a week-long cocaine binge.”

2. Tim Labesis

For those who might not instantly recognize Tim Labesis‘ name, let me inform you a bit about him. He’s the founding member of the metalcore band As I Lay Dying. He also formed another death metal band, Pyrithion. Sounds like a pretty cool guy right? He also hired a hitman to kill his wife…oops.

1. Ian Watkins 

There are people that are just jerks in real life, and then there is Ian Watkins. Watkins was the founder and lead vocalist of the rock group, Lostprophets. The band fell apart in 2013 when Watkins was charged with sexual assault on a minor. In 2013, he pleaded guilty to the 13 charges that were laid against him. Watkins was also charged with possession, and/or distribution of child pornography. He was also found with “extreme animal pornography” on his computer.
