Most hated band in the entire world - Limp Bizkit
Limp Bizkit really owned the world in 1999-2000, even though they were hated by everyone.

In Chicago, the DJ Manlow hosted a radio show about Limp Bizkit's front man Fred Durst and how much he hated him. When Limp Bizkit played with Metallica on the Summer Sanitarium Tour, in Chicago, the people even threw shoes at them, hitting Fred Durst and causing the band to leave. Wes Borland, Limp Bizkit's ex-guitar, left the band due to serious differences with Fred Durst.

Her Romances with Jerry Brown and George Lucas - Linda Ronstadt

Getting Banned in Vegas - Linda Ronstadt
Clean-cut Linda Ronstadt would seem to be the last person to get ousted from Sin City, but indeed she was. The grounds: during one of her shows, she dedicated a performance of her hit song, "Desperado" (originally by the Eagles), to radical leftist author and documentarian Michael Moore. While this gesture, considering the lyrics of the song, was probably tongue-in-cheek, the conservative local business-owners didn't find it funny, so they banned her.

"Bible Elbow" Joke - Lindsay Lohan
David Letterman's joke about Lindsay Lohan's repeated court appearances has caused the star both embarassment and a rumored nervous break-down. Letterman's joke: "Lindsay Lohan was in court today. She's been sworn-in so many times she has Bible elbow!" Lohan had been arrested for violating her probation, lying to police about a car crash, and obstruction which led to yet another court appearance and a possible return to jail. About the joke... Letterman is unapologetic.

Being a Klutz - Lindsay Lohan
In the past three years Lindsay Lohan has fallen 7 times and has been caught by Photogs in at least 4 of those incidents. She also kept knocking things over on the set of "Liz and Dick".

In addition, she has fallen out of her dress many times which she claims are just "wardrobe malfunctions"... rather than personal dysfunction!

Advice from Charlie Sheen! - Lindsay Lohan
Charlie Sheen thinks Lindsay Lohan is " a very good and decent young lady that is just going through a lot." He advises her to "lead with humor," so folks won't always see it if a situation is getting to her. Sheen and Lohan worked together on "Scary Movie 5," and when he learned she was having money problems, he decided to "pay it forward" by giving her $100,000. Lohan has not even bothered to say "Thank You" yet! Still, Sheen wishes her the best and asks that people "just give her a little more time... to get her act together."

Aside from his incredible range, which catapulted this tenor into operatic super-stardom in the first place, Pavarotti is probably best remembered for his bulging belly, which became increasingly noticeable by the '90s. His inability to lose weight became the butt of numerous jokes, including self-mocking ones. In reality though, his obesity limited his mobility around stages and lead to health complications.
