It seems like celebrities just get more outrageous every year. Just think: last year, everyone was talking about Tiger Woods’ mistresses and Heidi Montag’s plastic surgery. This year, extramarital affairs and cosmetic procedures seem like nothing compared to all the other craziness in the media. On that note, I proudly present the top hot messes of 2011.
Lindsay Lohan: Surprise! Lohan makes the top of the meter for four years running. It’s not a surprise that yet again her continuous bad judgement and worse behavior land her at the top of the hot messes. It’s hard to believe that just a few years ago she was that cute little redhead from Parent Trap and now she is in and out of jail like it’s her day job. Clearly, she’s taken the saying “any press is good press” a little too close to heart.
Charlie Sheen: Crazy breakdowns. Rants. Shocking television interviews. Pure trouble. How could he not be considered one of the top hot messes after The Meltdown of the Century? Maybe he took his character development for Two and a Half Men a little too far. We would have made him number one, but we didn’t want to give him another chance to say "winning." I hope his spot on this meter doesn’t get his tiger blood boiling.
Justin Bieber’s Alleged Baby Mama: "Baby, baby, baby, NO!" She’s a mess for even thinking she could get away with this scandal without any proof. What type of attention did she think accusing a tween heartthrob of being her baby daddy would bring? Come on, girl—next time she wants to pretend a celebrity fathered her child, at least choose someone like Brad Pitt. He’s already got six kids; one more wouldn’t be much of a surprise.
The Cast of Jersey Shore in Italy: The cast is on this meter because they made America face the embarrassment of being represented by people who believe being Italian means getting your GTL on. Since they claim Italy is their "motherland," they should take their orange skin and hair poofs and stay there forever. However, it is doubtful that Italy will want them back. Looks like they will need to find another place to party next season.
