Pop singer Ellie Goulding’s career is still going strong, but a few years ago, things could have seriously tanked for her. The songstress recalled how early on, she worked hard to conceal her real accent and trained herself how to talk “posh” in order to hide her working-class background. Naturally, this is something she regrets.
Goulding revealed to “The Observer” that she became obsessed with speaking well. She said she just felt that people knew she was a poor girl from a council house, so she did everything she could to change it. In retrospect, the singer now feels silly about all that and has said that she is no longer ashamed of her accent.
Wendy Gave Too Much Lip
It shouldn't be surprising to anyone that Wendy Williams let another eye-brow-raising comment slip out. The talk show host is no stranger to controversy, but when her comment caught the attention of Cher and even football star Adam Bighill, some people felt that she went too far.
Williams made fun of Joaquin Phoenix's cleft palate, and even though she found him "oddly attractive," people affected by the condition were not happy. In the end, the talk show host apologized on Twitter and promptly donated a sum to both the American Cleft Palate-Craniofacial Association and Operation Smile.
Benson's Hair Disaster
It may appear that Ashley Benson has it all. From the looks to the talent, the "Pretty Little Liars" actress definitely checks all the boxes, which makes this story all the more horrific. But one time, the actress almost lost all her hair due to botched bleaching at the hair salon.
Benson told "People Magazine" that this was her biggest regret. According to the actress, if you catch her in season three of the show, you can tell how terrible her hair is. If that's Benson's biggest regret, we say she's doing okay.
Katherine Heigl Knocked It
While the Seth Rogen comedy "Knocked Up" catapulted Katherine Heigel's career, she has some qualms about how the film turned out. The actress said in an interview with Vanity Fair that the film was a little misogynistic and that she didn't actually feel that her character was likable. Unfortunately, her comments got her heaps of criticism.
Heigel then tried to straighten things out on The Howard Stern Show by saying that she enjoyed the movie, but she still felt like her character was just a little problematic. Seems like Heigl just can't win.
After her hit single "7 Rings," Ariana Grande decided to commemorate the accomplishment by getting the song title tattooed on her palm - in Japanese. The tattoo was supposed to read as 七 (meaning seven) and "輪" (meaning "hoop," "circle," or "rings.) Unfortanunetly that's not what came out.
It turned out that the pop star got the words "Japanese BBQ grill" tattooed on her palm instead. Ari should have probably consulted with a translator beforehand!
