No one likes to puke, but almost everyone loves to catch someone famous doing something embarrassing. Perhaps it makes us feel like they are more human; it’s a chance for the celebrity elite to show us some of their flaws, ones that their publicists can’t shield them from. We might empathize if we’re a fan, or laugh hysterically if we don’t care about them at all — either way it’s still entertaining when people are caught in the act for the same reason we watch FAIL videos when we’re bored. But let’s put the shoe on the other foot for just a minute and imagine this unfortunate chain of events happening to you:
1.) You have one of the greatest jobs in the world according to everyone around you; you love what you do, get paid amazingly well, and fans adore your work. There you are, just beginning to perform, and then…
2.) You suddenly feel the urge to vomit, wait you might be OK, just need some air, just some more air and you will be fine.
3.) You look up and suddenly remember that you’re on stage in a venue full of strangers, and they are all expecting the show of a lifetime.
4.) You tried, but you can’t hold back that queasy feeling in your stomach any longer and it starts coming out.
5.) To add insult to injury, you’re caught on video.
6.) Your not so private moment is shared on the internet for millions of others to see, by people you don’t personally know, and the world shares, shares and shares some more…. your video vomit is forever a piece of digital history on YouTube!
Wait, who are we kidding? That would actually be hilarious to witness, and let’s face it, Justin Bieber deserves to feel shame about SOMETHING. For the latest commentary on celebrity mishaps, stay tuned for more true tales of famous barf.
