#1 Taylor Swift and Kanye West
In 2009, the famous country singer, Taylor Swift, won the Best Music Video award for her song “You Belong with Me” beating finalists Beyoncé, Lady Gaga, Pink, and others. But her memorable moment was cut short by rapper Kanye West, who stormed the stage and embarrassed a 19-year-old Taylor.
“Yo, Taylor, I’m truly delighted for you. Imma let you finish, but Beyoncé has one of the best videos of all time,” Kanye stopped, stunning everyone in the auditorium and watching at home. Taylor subsequently commented on the episode, explaining how she felt: “I’m not going to say I wasn’t rattled by it. I had to perform live five minutes later, so I had to get myself back to the place where I could perform.”
#2 Jennifer Lawrence
Jennifer Lawrence had just earned her first Academy Award when she experienced a humiliating moment in front of the world. In 2013, Lawrence slipped on the stairwell on her way up to accept her Best Actress award.
A standing ovation was also prepared for her win. But it just made her feel uncomfortable with it. She later said about her embarrassment at that moment, “I was very nervous and superstitious. I didn’t want to acknowledge the possibility that I would win,” Lawrence reminisced about that night.
The actress added: “I was very nervous, but I was ready. All the adrenaline clears out, and they call my name. I’m in shock. And then I fell, and it erased everything from my mind. I can look back at it now fondly, but for a long time, the fall thing was compassionate.”
#3 Blake Lively

Although Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds always keep secrets about their wedding. However, in a 2012 interview, they shared their unexpected moments.
“Florence Welch was singing at the reception, and they brought out these sparklers, and I’m watching her sing. I look down, and my wedding dress has a big burn mark from one sparkler. Right in the front! And it was just so heartbreaking for me.”
“And later, my dress was hanging up and Ryan said, ‘Isn’t that beautiful? You’ll always remember that moment. You have that forever, right there, preserved.’ Now, that’s my favorite part of the dress.”
#4 Madonna and Drake

Madonna startled Coachella attendees in April 2015 when kissing Drake, sitting on the stage, to dance with her. Unfortunately, Madonna slipped behind him while pushing his chin backward and laying a kiss on his lips. Drake seemed not eager as the kiss ended. His reaction humiliated many people since he appeared disgusted by the kiss.
After the picture became went viral, Drake published on Instagram that it had been “misinterpreted.” Nonetheless, the photo represents an unpleasant and slightly amusing moment for both of them.
#5 Olivia Rodrigo and Taylor Swift
Olivia Rodriguez won three trophies at the 2022 Grammy Awards. Sadly, everything went wrong while Olivia posed in the winner’s photo room after the ceremony. She dropped one of her prizes, and the golden gramophone immediately broke in half as expected.
Two moments, one bad luck.
#6 Steve Harvey
Imagine being crowned Miss Universe and turning down your title because of a blunder. No word can describe the feeling. The Host of Miss Universe 2015, Cameron Diaz, proclaimed Miss Colombia the winner instead of Miss Philippines who indeed won the prize. Miss Colombia discovered that the Host misread the results while blowing kisses and waving to her faithful supporters.
When the Host realized Miss Philippines was the winner, he had to return to the stage and retract his mistake. The mistake caught everyone off guard, resulting in a storm of reactions. After that, Steve apologized live on TV and via tweets. “This was an honest human mistake, and I am so regretful.”
#7 Katy Perry
Katy Perry has put on multiple memorable performances throughout her career. The star leaped into a massive desert when performing at MTV’s Latin America Awards in 2008. But her stunning performance did not go as planned, as the diva slipped on the icing and fell a minute later. It’s so weird how often she tries to go offstage, just to slide and fall again.
#8 Cameron Diaz
Wardrobe malfunctions sometimes can be avoided, and they’re much more awful when they happen on the red carpet in front of cameras and fans. Cameron Diaz, Lucy Liu, and Drew Barrymore were wearing the same theme of white gowns to Charlie’s Angels 2 premiere in 2003 when Diaz’s shoes broke minutes before the event. Thus, the actress flung them off and strode down the red carpet barefoot, towering over her co-stars.
