November 15, 2010

It’s no secret that some celebrities do a lot of crazy things. But let’s take a look at musicians and antics that raise an eyebrow! Who pops into your mind when you hear that? Well for a further look, keep reading below, with more pictures and videos too.

It is kind of overwhelming to take a look at the whole music industry and pick out a few of the musicians and the outrageous behaviors they have had. It was interesting though, to remember some of the crazy moments!

Let’s start with the musician and antics of the guy in the photo. Keith Richards of the Rolling Stones has been around for a long time, and in that time he has done some crazy things. He allegedly snorted his dad’s ashes and published some controversial thoughts in his book ‘Life,’ that the “Pirates of the Caribbean” crew wasn’t a fan of!

Others who have kept things interesting are Courtney Love, Sid Vicious and Ike Turner. Sid was charged with the death of his girlfriend and died of an overdose. Turner dealt with domestic charges and Love battled with drug issues, among other things.

More recent stars that I can think of that have had some outrageous behaviors are Kanye west, Amy Winehouse and Lady Gaga. Kanye is always speaking his mind, including his Katrina comments to President Bush and when he interrupted Taylor Swift during her acceptance speech! Winehouse is almost always doing something crazy including making a scene at theatres. Lady Gaga pushes the boundaries with costumes (remember the meat dress!), songs and videos.

That is just a peek at some of the outrageous behaviors of musicians and antics they have. Who do you think is the most outrageous? Let me know your thoughts below, after you check out these photos and a video.

    I don’t find this article too authoritative and have to question your age. Artists are usually extrovertive personalities, and certainly idiosyncratic by and large. Some of the most unusual perhaps GG Allin (and the Murder Junkies) as well as the late Wendy O. Williams and the Plasmatics. Verging on the fringe known as Performance Art. People like Ozzy Osbourne and Alice Cooper know what they are doing when they are sober, but such is the pressure of a life in music performing that drugs and alcohol are all too common. Finding out about the drug access of The Eagles tells you something about it! Everyone has the temptation of excess.

    You didn’t even mention Keith Moon,Joe Walsh or Eric Burdon. History didn’t begin at 1980. Disappointing to say the least.
