Nickelodeon star Lucas Cruikshank a.k.a. Fred came out the closet recently. (See TMZ video.) Were his fans OR anyone who’s heard of him surprised? Absolutely not! Lucas’ flamboyant behavior made it hard to believe he’d ever be into girls or was trying to hide his sexuality. News of his admittance to preferring males was a no-brainer – kind of like other reported events regarding celebrities.
Other ‘duh’ moments in Hollywood:
- DMX gets arrested. Well known rapper DMX used to be the unofficial king of his genre. From his lyrics to his videos, this talented artist captivated fans. Then, he fell off. Illegal substances, alcohol, women – they ALL drug him down. As a result, these days, his name is synonymous with jail time and hearing of another arrest is common.
- Alec Baldwin gets angry. This iconic actor has a lot of passion. And – unfortunately – it keeps him in the news. From Twitter rants to public fights with wife Hilaria, Baldwin can’t seem to totally calm down. His hot temper is so famous that the idea of him NOT throwing a tantrum about something sounds like science fiction.
- Lady Gaga wears what?! Singer Lady Gaga used to SHOCK fans with her wacky attire. Meat corsets and other unusual wardrobe pieces got her several photo ops from the paparazzi. But currently, even these folks aren’t biting. Nobody expects to see Gaga dressed in ‘normal’ clothing, so the excitement has died down.
- Taylor Swift broke up with -. (Sorry Swifities!) Crooner Taylor Swift is infamous for breaking up with a beau and then writing a song about their relationship. This continuous cycle guarantees money in the bank, but is starting to sound like a broken record. (See list of Taylor’s exes.)
- Lindsay Lohan goes to court. This actress’s struggles with drug and alcohol abuse have been well documented throughout the years. For this reason, she spends a lot of hours in court. Her last stint sent her to rehab – again. Fans are hoping that her last attempt to get clean took because attorney Shawn Holley is starting to look a little haggard.
In conclusion, the above events make up the short list of ‘duh’ moments in Hollywood. These celebrities mentioned may not always be in the studio making movies or music, but they sure stay on track in other areas.
