In the mid-2000s, Lindsay Lohan's daily presence in worldwide news was marked by her rapid rise to fame as a child star, followed by a turbulent lifestyle, including drug possession, drunk driving, and theft charges, which led to a 30-day jail sentence.
This pop princess faced typical celebrity controversies in her early career, but in the late 2000s, Britney's public image took a drastic turn. Her widely covered breakdown in 2007, including shaving her head and rehab stints, marked a significant shift from her previous image as America's sweetheart.
Nicki Minaj, the leading female figure in rap, is no stranger to controversy. Her on-stage exorcism, Twitter claims of marrying Drake, and penchant for dissing celebrities in her lyrics, such as Lil Kim and DJ Khaled, make shock value a consistent part of her persona.
Cardi B's rise in the music scene brought constant attention, fueled by her bold style, online outbursts, and feuds. Her unforgettable moment was the altercation with Nicki Minaj at a Harper's Bazaar event, and her explicit track "WAP" stirred controversy.
Her "Youngest Self-Made Billionaire" title sparks debate due to her family's influence, and notable moments include early lip injections, a major beauty transformation, and a secretive nine-month pregnancy reveal with a heartfelt tribute to motherhood.
Taylor Swift has had her share of celebrity feuds, including Katy Perry, Nicki Minaj, and Kanye West. While some were resolved, the conflict with Kanye resurfaced when he released unapproved lyrics in his song "Famous."
Lady Gaga's outfits always attract attention, from the meat dress to hatching from an egg. However, her most shocking moments include covering herself in fake blood during a 2009 VMA performance and a 2014 performance involving simulated vomiting with a model.
Miley Cyrus has shed her Disney image with provocative VMA performances, on-stage marijuana use, and a memorable naked wrecking ball ride. Her public feud with Nicki Minaj, a brief marriage to Liam Hemsworth, and her openness about dating women have also made headlines.
Her tumultuous relationship with Chris Brown, including a brutal attack in 2009, thrust her into the spotlight. Rihanna's willingness to give him a second chance, her bold style choices, and her openness about drug use have all contributed to her reputation for controversy in pop culture.
Kim Kardashian initially gained fame due to a leaked sex tape with Ray J, setting the stage for a series of controversies. Her life has included a short-lived marriage, a high-profile relationship and divorce with Kanye West, provocative photos that broke the internet, pursuing a law degree, and daring fashion choices.
