What’s more embarrassing than public apologies? Saying something and being proven totally wrong about it. Celebs make bold statements and predictions and it’s always worse when they have to face the fact that they were just talking stupid yang. Here are some examples.
Charles Barkley – Back in the 1993 NBA Finals, Barkley said that God told him he would beat MJ to win a championship. After MJ spanked that a$$, it made us wonder: Was Barkley talking crazy or is Jordan just that good?
Bill Clinton – When the former POTUS tried to deny that he was getting his flagpole shined up in the Oval Office, he had to chew on his words by admitting that he was getting his freak on. Honesty is the best policy, Billy Boy.
Fox News – First of all, Fox News will never admit they’re wrong. But they tried to discredit Obama for years, until Obeezy found and killed Osama Bin Laden. They’re still throwing shots, but they know what’s up.
50 Cent – Fiddy swore that if Kanye West outsold him when their albums dropped on the same day in 2007, he’d retire. Well, Yeezy whooped the stank out of 50, making the G-Unit star look foolish. Fifty, for some reason, hadn’t retired, but he had to eat a bag of crow.
Oprah – Oprah used to diss rappers all the time because of how they supposedly treated women. But when Jigga started making that mainstream bread, she sure hopped up and invited him to the show. Whaddaya know, she learned that rappers weren’t all terrible people.
American Idol – The Idol judges didn’t think J Hud could make it, partially because of her “look”. Whatever happened to Jennifer Hudson, anyway? Yeah, we thought so.
Carlos Boozer – Just two weeks ago, Boozer said that Chris Bosh wasn’t part of the Big Three. Bosh Spice responded by making Carlos his biggity bish for five games.
Lil Kim – She thought dissing Nicki Minaj would restart her career. Kim was screaming about how she’s back and Nicki’s career is over. Nicki didn’t miss a beat and Kim’s mixtape went triple styrofoam. She won’t ever admit that it’s over for her, though. She’s eating crow in silence.
