19. Sam Smith's self-isolation meltdown.
via: Getty ImagesSam Smith has become one of the most successful pop stars of the decade, but their lockdown Instagram post caused quite a stir among fans.
After such an enlightening year coming to terms with their gender identity, it seems as though things have been going downhill for Smith.
And unfortunately, Sam Smith was one of them.
...In their Los Angeles mansion.

18. Alex Trebek destroys a contestant on Jeopardy!
via: Getty ImagesNext up we have the one and only Alex Trebek, who basically roasted the entire nerdcore community in one fell swoop.
“Your favorite type of music is something I’ve never heard before but it doesn’t sound fun," Trebek prompted.
Yoooooooo, Alex Trebek is the coldest dude in the game, lololololol. I'm dying laughing. @DragonflyJonez… https://t.co/XvcSCPpVs3— 🌚🌞🌝 Lydia Stan Account (@🌚🌞🌝 Lydia Stan Account)1476315698.0
“It’s people who identify as nerdy rapping about the things they love: video games, science fiction, having a hard time meeting romantic partners, you know? It’s really catchy and fun," explained the contestant.
It's finally happened. I'm gonna have to make a diss track at Alex Trebek. Just like that old Gypsy predicted...— Beefy (@Beefy)1476332406.0
Some were feeling sore...
Who's going to be the first to write a song gunning for Trebek? His name already rhymes with Star Trek n everything https://t.co/hpYT6hPrEB— Kermit Gulag (@Kermit Gulag)1476338900.0
But other fans were more forgiving...
Hey #Nerdcore fans! Trebek was mean to Susan Cole & I hope he apologizes, but we DID start the scene based on being losers.— Fat Skeleton (@Fat Skeleton)1476324227.0
17. Hillary Clinton tweets "best burn in history" to Donald Trump over disinfectant comments.
via: Getty ImagesAfter President Trump shockingly suggested "injecting disinfectant" as a remedy for the ongoing medical pandemic, it forced the company who owns Dettol and Lysol to issued a warning that urges people against his dangerous recommendation. So, of course, Hillary Clinton couldn't resist a dig.
Trump casually suggested that these disinfectants could, in some way, be "injected" into the body as a method of combatting the virus.
"The disinfectant, where it knocks it out in a minute, and is there a way we can do something like that by injectio… https://t.co/9MMW0IcVCT— Aaron Rupar (@Aaron Rupar)1587680385.0
Even for Trump's standards, these claims are completely outrageous.
via: Getty ImagesPeople are horrified that a man with such power and influence would offer such reckless and potentially deadly advice to his country.
Since his shocking claims, medical experts have been frantically urging people to not inject themselves with chemicals.
Oh FFS please don’t do this. I don’t need the extra work. If you are sick call your doctor. Don’t self medicate. https://t.co/uBXIasVXio— Judy Melinek M.D. (@Judy Melinek M.D.)1587687568.0
It didn't take long for Hillary Clinton to chime in.

16. The Irwin Family responds to fans’ fury over Bindi’s TV wedding special.
It was a small and private ceremony...
Their wedding was filmed for a TV special.
So, quite understandably, Aussie fans are pretty put out by their decision.

15. Piers Morgan slams Prince Harry in scathing rant about a recent video.
via: Getty ImagesIt's very rare when Piers Morgan isn't making headlines for his bold and often outrageous comments. Usually, Morgan's tantrums are targetted towards one person, in particular... take his vendetta against Meghan Markle, for instance. But this time, he directed his anger at her husband, Prince Harry, instead, in what has been described as a "scathing rant," leaving fans speechless after witnessing the meltdown.
Harry drew in negative attention for comments he made during a recent podcast.
via: Getty ImagesTucked away in his Malibu mansion, Prince Harry had been doing British families a service by connecting with them over video call where he expressed happiness about the state of the United Kingdom. However, a "misinformed" comment during a podcast really tarnished his positive energy.
What did he say?
via: Getty ImagesWell, the royal claimed that everything was being “exaggerated," and that the effort by people around the country proves that “things are better than we are led to believe" during a podcast called Declassified.
And on Good Morning Britain we saw Piers reach boiling point while discussing the topic...
via: YouTubePiers insisted Harry was “making it all about him again" after “ditching his country" and fleeing to the States. “I might remind him the world is in a war at the moment with a virus which is destroying lives and the lives of health care workers in this country. What was Harry’s contribution to this debate other than making it all about him again? To claim we’re all exaggerating this war."
He continued:"The brass neck of this guy, who ditched his country..." “Now lives in a Malibu mansion, that I don’t think he even pays for, lecturing us that we are exaggerating a war. When we have had deaths of eighty health care workers. We are showing people the reality of this and we’re not reliant on a pampered little duke in his Malibu mansion." Things then took a very dramatic turn when his co-host Suzanna Reed opted to defend the pair: “Why do you excuse them? You heard what he said. We are exaggerating it. This crisis according to Prince Harry in his Malibu mansion is not as bad." Yikes.
14. Ricky Gervais slams celebs for whining about lockdown from their "mansions."
via: Getty ImagesAmid the ongoing medical pandemic, millions of us have been required to self-isolate at home... celebrities included. And, while some of these famous faces have been taking to their social media platforms to send encouraging messages and provide some much-needed entertainment for the rest of us, others have been expressing their anguish (like Sam Smith and Ellen, for instance.)
Gervais had previously remained relatively quiet regarding the whole situation.
But, he came down like a ton of bricks on all the celebrities currently complaining about their lockdown...
via: Getty ImagesSpeaking to the British tabloid, The Sun, Gervais said: “After this is over I never want to hear people moaning about the welfare state again, I never want to hear people moaning about nurses again. Or porters."
He pointed out how it is our health care workers who deserve to be complaining...
via: Getty ImagesNot our privileged celebrities. “These people are doing fourteen-hour shifts and not complaining. Wearing masks, and being left with sores, after risking their own health and their families’ health selflessly."
He made it clear he's enough of these futile complaints.
via: Getty Images“Then I see someone complaining about being in a mansion with a swimming pool. And, you know, honestly, I just don’t want to hear it."
13. Fans think Johnny Depp subtly addressed the Amber Heard conflict in his first Instagram post.
via: Getty ImagesThroughout Johnny Depp and Amber Heard's relationship, various reports of abuse between the pair continued to surface. So it came as no shock when Amber filed for divorce in March 2016, just fifteen months after the couple had initially exchanged their “I do"s.
At first, the divorce seemed unsuspicious...
via: Getty ImagesWith many news outlets reporting that Amber had cited “irreconcilable differences" while filing the divorce petition. And only a few months into their separation, Amber filed a restraining order against Johnny, claiming that he had previously assaulted her. Amber had alleged that the actor had hit her on several occasions, and even provided video footage of him flinging a glass of wine across the room in a fit of rage.
It was a big allegation to make...
via: Getty ImagesAnd, in 2018, the actress penned an article for The Washington Post where she opened up about her experience with domestic abuse and violence. But people were confused when Amber retracted her allegations just one day before the hearing was due to be held.
There was an outpour of support for Amber, who was even made the American Civil Liberties Union’s “Ambassador for Women’s Issues."
via: Getty ImagesLast year, Johnny filed a $50-million defamation case against Amber, and presented evidence that he was the one on the receiving end of the abuse, not the other way around. The lawsuit states that all of Amber’s claims were “categorically and demonstrably false," and listed down incidents of Amber’s alleged abuse since the start of their marriage, including punching and kicking, as well as staging her attacks. “She hit, punched and kicked me. She also repeatedly and frequently threw objects into my body and head, including heavy bottles, soda cans, burning candles, television remote controls and paint thinner cans, which severely injured me," his lawsuit read.
And, to tarnish the actress' reputation and credibility even further...

Recently, Johnny joined Instagram.
12. Ricky Gervais taking another swipe at celebs following that "Imagine," video.
We all know that viral clip posted by the Wonder Woman star, in an attempt to lift spirits... Well, Gervais thinks they have ulterior motives. He's clearly tuned in to the people...Ricky lay into the stars of the video during an interview on BBC Radio 5 Live, branding them “self-promoting" for taking part in the singalong. He said: “That Imagine video, it’s not that bad, they’re probably very nice people. It was an awful rendition, but they might have been doing it for good reasons, to help these normal nobodies."
He's always shedding light on the reality behind the glitz and glamour.
via: TwitterHe said: “There are people in high rise blocks with three kids – I can’t complain, this is why millionaires in their mansions with their gym and going for a swim can’t lecture people.
He clearly has no time for millionaires lecturing us normal people on how to live our lives...
via: TwitterHe continued: “They’re going ‘My film’s coming up and I’m not on telly – I need to be in the public eye’, not all of them but some of them. “You can see in their eye – ‘I could cry at the beauty of my personality, I’m just so beautiful for doing this’ and everyone sees that – we get it."

11. Kylie Jenner claps back at troll who body-shamed her.
It was all sparked by this comment:
The mom-of-one previously spoke about her post-baby bod in a YouTube video...
10. Miley Cyrus responds to Chris Hemsworth throwing shade at her following her split with Liam Hemsworth.
via: Getty ImagesJust 8 months after Miley and Liam tied the knot, the once Hollywood "it" couple announced that they were calling it quits… Again, and since then, it's been a saga, to say the least.
Liam has remained pretty tight-lipped about the split.
via: Getty ImagesBut his brother, Chris, couldn't resist making a little dig at Miley.
The actor spoke about how well Liam is doing, and how he had relocated back to Australia for a “better lifestyle."
via: InstagramAnd, when discussing the reason that Liam is in such great shape, he said: "We got him out of Malibu!" Liam and Miley had a home together in Malibu, California, before their split, and the singer also wrote the song “Malibu" about their relationship.
Miley got well and truly burnt, and after getting wind of the comment...entertainment portal, “Miley is aware of the comments but she won’t respond." The source went on to explain Miley's current situation: “She’s not with Liam anymore and is very happy in her current relationship so as far as she’s concerned it’s just none of her business what Liam or his family says. She already spoke her truth with her music, she’s moved on now. She’s happy and in love and she’s putting her energy into trying to help as much as she can in this current crisis."
Apparently, Miley no longer wants to be petty.
9. Jeff Lowe responds to the conspiracy that he's Carole Baskin’s ex-Husband.Netflix's Tiger King took the internet by storm, but one of the biggest conspiracy theories to come out of it was that Jeff Lowe was Carole Baskin's ex-husband - no, not the one who went missing (or was murdered and fed to the tigers, depending on who you ask), but her first husband, who she said was abusive.
High-key conman and Las Vegas lothario Jeff Lowe is one of the men who helped the authorities put Joe Exotic behind bars.The theory was shared to Facebook, with one fan writing: “Jeff is Carole’s abusive first husband who she paid off to go take Joe down. She rented a mansion and that caw to draw him in. “Jeff and (James Garretson) even admit they directed Joe to kill Carole. When Joe didn’t do it, they needed him to pay, he didn’t. So Jeff sent his friend and he ‘chickened out’ on purpose."
Hear me out: Carol’s 1st husband is “Jeff Lowe” -con artist. He & Allan kill Don. Carol pays them money she inherit… https://t.co/ECtUi1z6Ba— Haley Herzog (@Haley Herzog)1586052625.0
People went crazy on social media...And soon enough, Jeff himself spoke out about the rumors, and his response was pretty bizarre.
Jeff took to Reddit to address the allegations that he was Carole's husband...A fan questioned Lowe on his thoughts on the theory, asking: “There’s a conspiracy all over the internet this week that you were Carole Baskins’ first husband. Have you seen the picture comparison and what’s your take on this? She doesn’t seem like your type!" He replied: “You’re a brilliant man and she is not my type. If I was stuck on a deserted island with her, I would f*** a coconut. I’ve seen the side by side pictures. It looks more like John and Joe’s love child." Ouch.
8. Bruce Willis quarantining with ex-wife, Demi Moore, instead of his current wife.
via: InstagramThe internet was left slightly confused when it was revealed that Demi Moore was lockdown-ing with not only her 3 kids and their partners, but with her ex, Bruce Willis. Of course, its natural she'll want to be with her kids, but people couldn't understand why Bruce wasn't quarantining with his current wife, Emma Hemming.
Of course, it is truly refreshing to see a divorced couple maintaining a strong and healthy friendship...
However, there has been one thing on everyone's mind.... what did Emma think of all this?
Despite their unconventional quarantine set-up, sources have revealed this:
7. Ryan Reynolds trolls Hugh Jackman over his wedding anniversary post.
via: Getty ImagesRyan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman have a "long-standing feud," but in reality they are best pals who simply like to troll each other once in a while. In fact, they constantly roast each other, the way only real buds can, and it seems pretty fundamental to their friendship.
So, when Jackman posted a soppy anniversary post dedicated to his wife, Reynolds knew it was time to pounce.
via: Getty ImagesAnd it was his most hilarious trolling yet.
The Wolverine star posted this photograph to his Instagram:
But instead of gushing over the couple like everyone else was, Reynolds commented this:
Looks like a truce is definitely off the cards.

6. Barack Obama takes a swipe at Donald Trump at his handling of the pandemic.
via: Getty ImagesBetween calling it the "Chinese virus" and telling people to inject themselves with disinfectant, it's safe to say that Trump hasn’t exactly been praised for his handling of the ongoing medical crisis. And Barack Obama was one of the long list of people who took a swipe at him for it.
Obama took part in a virtual meeting arranged by Bloomberg Philanthropies...
via: Getty ImagesIn which he gave advice to a group of America’s Mayors on how to effectively be a leader throughout the pandemic.
He first urged them to consistently "speak the truth."
via: Getty Images“Speak the truth. Speak it clearly. Speak it with compassion," he said. “Speak it with empathy for what folks are going through." It doesn’t take a genius to see that this is definitely one of Trump’s downfalls…
He then went on to warn them of the "biggest mistake" a leader can make in this crisis.
via: Getty Images“The biggest mistake any [of] us can make in these situations is to misinform, particularly when we’re requiring people to make sacrifices and take actions that might not be their natural inclination." Burn.
Though no names were called...
via: Getty ImagesIt was pretty obvious that he was referring to Trump’s frequent, and rather embarrassing blunders and mistakes during his press conferences.
5. And it didn't end there... Obama took yet another swipe at Trump.
via: Getty ImagesConsidering Obama rarely ever weighs into the work of other presidents – mostly using his Twitter account to praise frontline workers and share advice from public health experts, this is a big deal.
The former President took to Twitter to air his views.
via: Getty Images“We’ve seen all too terribly the consequences of those who denied warnings of a pandemic," he wrote, without directly naming the president.

4. Kourtney Kardashian breaks her silence after quitting Keeping up With the Kardashians.
Can't remember? Let us refresh your memory...
via: YouTubeIn the dramatic clip, Kim and Kourtney end up getting physical with each other, and as things begin to get heated, Kim throws a punch at her sister. Kim even later revealed that production on the show had to be shut down temporarily following the heated fight.
Tensions seemed to be running high amongst the family...
Kourtney confirmed this on Instagram...
And on another episode of KUWTK...
3. Piers Morgan rips into Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s new brand name.
via: Getty ImagesPiers has always made his thoughts on Meghan quite clear, although at one point the pair were actually friends. But, when she stopped replying to his calls, Piers grew to become rather bitter and has continuously blasted Meghan, both in his columns and live on air on his breakfast show, Good Morning Britain.
He's brandished her as a "ruthless status seeker" in the past...

This particular outburst was all triggered by a recent announcement from the couple. The announcement shocked the world as both Harry and Meghan revealed they would be launching a new charity named “Archewell."

2. Billie Eilish responds to backlash after posting a bikini video online.
Billie has been open about why she chooses to dress in oversized clothes...
Taking to Instagram, Billie posted an incredibly short video of herself wearing a bikini on vacation.
So, she decided to clap back at the trolls.
1. It didn't end there for the star, however.
via: Getty ImagesThe singer was faced with more backlash when she revealed her body on stage.
Billie kicked off her Where Do We Go world tour in Miami earlier this year, where she premiered a powerful video about body shaming.
via: Getty ImagesThe video was showcased during the interlude of her debut show and showed Billie slowly taking off her clothes alongside a powerful message voiced by the singer.
A video of Billie standing in an over-sized black sweater was projected over the stage...
Billie's speech moved on to discuss her own personal experiences with fame and body-shaming, as she said:
via: Twitter“Some people hate what I wear, some people praise it, some people use it to shame others, some people use it to shame me — but I feel you watching. Always, and nothing I do goes unseen, so while I feel your stares, your disapproval or your sigh of relief, if I lived by them, I’d never be able to move."
And, as she gradually removes more clothing and exposes her chest in a plain black vest, she questions:
via: Twitter“Would you like me to be smaller? Weaker? Softer? Taller? Would you like me to be quiet? Do my shoulders provoke you? Does my chest? Am I my stomach? My hips?" But, of course, her decision wasn't without the risk of backlash, and while she received a ton of praise for the move, others weren’t so impressed and claimed that, because of her showing her shoulders, stomach, and chest, they had ultimately “lost respect for her." Yep, really.
Billie responded to the haters.
