Celebs Having Their Say

Sometimes it’s just best to keep schtum but these stars just couldn’t resist having their say.

Being a celebrity can have its advantages, you get given free clothes so there are less wardrobe malfunctions and you’ll always get a reservation at that exclusive restaurant. Yet, these A-list blessings can often lead to a false sense of immortality which gives some celebs the impression that they can say what they like and get away with it, but they can’t. Ahlan! reveals the latest celebrity outbursts.

ELTON JOHN

The aging warbler is renowned for his acid tongue, and with his juggernaut of talent he usually gets away with it. However, the Rocket Man singer has perhaps gone too far this time by insulting music industry big wigs, even taking a swipe at pal Cheryl Cole insisting her music is devoid of “human soul”.
Elt let slip in a recent interview, “The music is all awful [today]. Frankly, they all sound the same. It’s hard to tell Girls Aloud from The Saturdays. And then there’s Cheryl Cole… It’s all c**p. British pop music like that is the worst. It could have been made by anybody.”

Sir Elton admitted he is less than impressed with performers who don’t sing live – “All lip-synchers should be shot. Only drag queens are allowed to lip-synch. Go and see Take That or Westlife and how much of that is live? I know Gary Barlow can sing live, that solves that one. I think they genuinely do sing their stuff, but 99 percent of the other f****** Herberts out there can’t sing a note.” Adding, “The records I love are all about musicianship. When you put a bunch of musicians in a room together, there’s human soul. That’s not happening now.”

But it wasn’t just famous musicians who faced Elton’s wrath, he also made a swipe at reality stars. “Who the f*** is Kim Kardashian?” he questioned, “some stupid old tart from somewhere. Reality has killed talent.” Ohh! Get you Elty.

RUSSELL BRAND

The British comedian has made a living from his crack-pot confessions even fronting a successful TV show Ponderland in which he did exactly that, ponder. Although he is only 35-years-old Russ has already released two autobiographies, openly confessing all about his insane antics. Russell doesn’t hold back and with his recent Hollywood success he certainly doesn’t like boasting, so much so in fact it nearly cost him his life.

The star spilled all about a recent visit to Angola Jail in Louisiana as part of his upcoming documentary Happiness, “It was terrifying. The average sentence in there was 80 years for murder. This guy is dangerous, suicidal and once escaped. I was in his cell and I started winding him up that I’m in movies and rich. I said, ‘This is a bit depressing. You have no possessions. This bed is really hard. I stay in hotels. I’m famous and rich.”

Russell clearly relished in his remarks, but accepted he went too far, adding, “It was a stupid thing to do. I got out of there as quick as I could. Here’s a social tip – don’t boast!”

Despite only being married to Katy Perry for three months the comedian has given actor Ben Affleck cause for concern with his constant gushings over to his Arthur co-star Jennifer Garner, “She’s like a fairy princess. There’s a brand of red-velvet cake, her mouth is made of that. She smashes you in the mouth [in] those kissing
scenes. If I was Ben Affleck, man I’d be p****d off.”

GISELE BUNDCHEN

Gisele first caused outrage after she fell pregnant and insisted, “I think a lot of people get pregnant and decide they can turn into garbage disposals. I was mindful about what I ate, and I gained only 30 pounds.” Now Gisele has put her size seven foot in her mouth again with her latest mindless ramblings.

The Brazilian model’s recent outburst saw her come under fire from skin cancer experts for allegedly dismissing protective sun-tan lotions as “poison” during the launch of her organic skin care collection, Sejaa. She said, “I cannot put this poison on my skin. I do not use anything synthetic.” The 30-year-old then redeemed herself a little by saying she avoids serious damage to her body by only exposing her skin to sunlight before 8am!

Worried her comments may have affected sales for her product line her publicist claimed the super was misquoted, insisting, “She simply stated her all-natural skincare line does not include an SPF product. She followed that line of questions saying she tried to stay out of the sun when it is the strongest between 9am to 4pm.”

RUPERT EVERETT

Anyone who has read this English actor’s autobiography Red Carpets And Other Banana Skins will know that Rupert is no stranger to causing drama, however the My Best Friend’s Wedding star has shocked Hollywood with his most recent slurs.

Infamous for insulting his Hollywood colleagues, he did what he does best in a recent radio interview – “Colin Firth I don’t think was at all good in Mamma Mia! I would have thought it was almost a careericide… Someone like Aniston, the star of such box office duds as The Bounty Hunter and The Switch, will have one too many total flops, but she’s still a member of that club. [She’s] like a star forming in the universe, things will swirl around her and it will suddenly solidify into another vital tasteless romcom.” He also targeted screen legends Robert De Niro and Al Pacino – “They’re all just tragic parodies of themselves. Al Pacino looks like a mad old freak now. I say give it a rest, or go and do some serious stuff.”

And the posh star wonders why he struggles to get work in Hollywood... tastes a bit like sour grapes to us Rupert!
