Celeb Bad Boys We Can't Help But Love


Fame isn't all privilege and paparazzi. Being a popular pro comes with its own set of cons— consider the raunchy rumors, scandals, and social media drama. While it's understandable that even the most respected stars will have their names slandered at least once in their career, there's are those who seem to thrive on constant negative pander. As fans, we find ourselves attracted to the debonaire delinquents who steal our hearts despite (or because of?) their bad reps and rap sheets. With Columbus Short officially  joining the Bad Boys Club, take a look at some of his fellow inductees.

Columbus Short

This gladiator just can't keep his hands to himself. With his real life drama starting to catch up to him, alter ego, Harrison, may be more than a fictional character. Though his latest bar brawl will cost him a pretty penny, w can't help but heart the sexy Scandal star.

Premiere Of Relativity Media's "3 Days To Kill" - Red CarpetJohnny Depp

Known for his infamous hotel trashing, bad relationships, and drug abuse, Johnny Depp was the pretty poster child for Hollywood rebellion. The actor may have cleaned up his image in his latter years, but his past will forever follow him—not that we mind.

Floyd Mayweather

Floyd talks a lot of shit, but his undefeated record proves he's got the punch to back up the banter. Nothing's sexier than a trouble-maker who shows and proves.

Jonathan Rhys Meyer

He's dreamy (with a sexy accent) but his track record is troubling. He was discovered after being expelled from school and is constantly modeling for menacing mug shots, but that doesn't effect how we swoon over him. 

Chris Brown

Chris Brown

Chris Brown's legal situations are becoming more famous than he is. And no matter if he's rocking orange jumpsuit or fighting another charge, we're still (secretly) rooting for a positive comeback.

Justin Bieber

If it wasn't for Justin's amazing talent, we might think twice about his immature antics, but the kid's vocals and songwriting skills have us rooting for his good and bad ways.

Not only are we stuck on his swag, we love how he takes care of family first. Even when he served a bit of a bid, we anxiously awaited his release for a chance to shower him with our full support. 

Shia LaBeouf

 Shia LaBeouf

If it wasn't for his 180 from straight-shooting Even Stevens actor to the bad-ass Transformers star, we wouldn't look twice in his direction. But somewhere between the bar fights and motorcycle wheelies, we've managed to get caught up. 

The Game

The Game

Dr. Dre's protégé has a bad rap since his early years in Compton. While he's since focused his energy on music and helping the community, we still like to remember him as the gorgeous troublemaker who used to flank Fiddy. 


Leonardo DiCaprio

He may be the alpha male in movies, but we hear he's a dog in real life. The sexy star has a reputation for destroying hotel rooms, partying, and bed-hopping, but for some reason, our attraction for him increases with every silly stunt he pulls.

August Alsina

August Alsina

He may be an industry newbie, but his rep is as rebellious as his excessive ink work. Between his raunchy rhymes and rift with Trey Songz, this tatted singer has definitely caught our attention.

John Mayer never seems overly concerned with who he's pissing off week-to-week. The newly-single singer not only has a bad rep in the romance department, but he's known for his lewd comments and disregard for other's feelings. Somehow, despite the claims, we find him oddly attractive.

DeSean Jackson

It's one thing to be known for coloring outside the lines, but gang-affiliations and a bad attitude are hard to ignore. The newly-freed agent's questionably dark past may be starting to affect his future, but our crush only deepens with every scandalous story.

Kanye West

We have a love/hate relationship with the loose-lipped lyricist. We've grown accustomed to his random rants and awkward announcements, and somewhere between his social media soliloquies and paparazzi brawls, we fell in love with the proud new papa.

Kelly Rowland Says Her Highly-Anticipated Project Is "Definitely Coming"

Six years ago, Kelly Rowland released her fourth studio album titled Talk a Good Game. The project boasted hit singles like "Kisses Down Low" and the transparent "Dirty Laundry." Now, the Houston native is preparing to release a project that'll surely satisfy fans' patient earbuds.

In an interview with Billboard, Rowland shared her hopes for putting out a new body of work and the pressure that she's encountered since she's been in the studio. "This is by far the longest, most pressure-filled process ever, only because I know what it's supposed to be and I have been so hard on myself. I know it," she said. "And it's the first time I've said it out loud. I've been extremely hard on myself. But it's definitely coming, and I'm more so excited about this project than anything else."

The news follows the recent release of Rowland's "Kelly" track, which was met with critical acclaim in November 2018. In addition to preparing the release of new music, the "Motivation" singer discussed fans' wish for a Destiny's Child reunion. The rumors have been fueled by social media photographs of Rowland with either Beyonce or Michelle or all three, especially during Beyonce's past Coachella performance. But Rowland assures readers that it's not what they think.

"It's so funny. I guess every time people see us together, they just see music but I see sisterhood, and that's what we are and that's what me, her, Michelle [Williams] and Solange and I are. People see us all together, they immediately think music. I'm like, no. Just family." As Rowland previously mentioned Solange, she hopes to one day work with her again.

"I'm a huge fan," she said. "I love her writing and how detailed and particular she is. I always wanted to figure out how the heck she has so many different layers of harmonies when she is constructing these vocals, and it's so complex but simple. It's genius. It's the genius in her genius mind that she has in there." One of the last times the pair collaborated was on Rowland's "Simply Deep" track off her debut solo album of the same name. Solange also penned a few songs off the same project. Fast forward to 2016, and Rowland's vocals were featured on Solange's iconic A Seat at the Table.

Teyana Taylor To Pay Homage To Ballroom Culture In "WTP" Video

Teyana Taylor aims to keep her hot streak of innovative videos coming thanks to this recent announcement. Taking to Instagram on Wednesday (Jan. 9), the "Gonna Love Me" singer will show adoration to ballroom culture in the visual for "WTP."

Directed by Gregory "Beef" Jones, The Aunties Inc., and Taylor herself, the Harlemite takes viewers on her journey to the expression-filled space where she hopes to rack up 10s across the board from a group of judges. The premise of the video also seems to follow a mockumentary format airing on a fictional network named FEMTV. Alongside Taylor, other men and women get ready to display their talents and confidence on the ballroom floor.

"WTP" is featured on the mother-of-one's sophomore album, K.T.S.E., which was released in June 2018. While the rollout's controversy didn't entirely muddle the excitement behind the project's debut, Taylor said she was sold on the idea that her album would be treated as the biggest out of G.O.O.D. Music's string of releases last year.

"I didn't know ahead of time that there wouldn't be any singles or visuals. But I knew that it was going to be the five-album thing," she said during a HOT 97 interview. "[Kanye] wanted [my album] to be last, he wanted mine to be the biggest. That's the way they sauced it up. I was sold."

The video will debut on Jan. 19. Check out the teaser below.

Trina Braxton’s Ex-Husband, Gabe Solis, Dies After Battle With Cancer

Gabe Solis, the ex-husband of Trina Braxton, lost his battle with cancer, Thursday (Dec. 20),  TMZ reports. He was 43.

Solis passed away at his home in Texas, surrounded by friends and family, according to the outlet. No official details have been released about his passing.

Solis had reportedly been keeping his cancer battle private. His death came as a shock to his loved ones. On Friday (Dec. 21), Braxton seemingly mourned the loss of her ex-husband with a cryptic Instagram meme reading, “I need a hug..E bottle of wine.”

The former couple tied the knot in 2003, and appeared together on previous seasons of WEtv’s Braxton Family Values. Despite finalizing their divorce in 2015, Braxton and Solis confronted lingering issues from their marriage during an episode of Iyanla: Fix My Life, earlier in the year.

Braxton has since moved on to a new relationship, but remained friends with Solis.
