  • 5 Embarrassing Celebrity Marriages - Weird Worm
    Marriage is special thing and the most obnoxious couple you know probably reminds you of that every time you get together at dinner parties Of course not all marriages are perfect and in fact many end poorly Some people just are not meant to be together and that is not just limited to every day average normal people like us either Celebrities as magazines often tell us are just like us They sometimes make horrible decisions as well and because they are in the public eye it affords us the opportunity to point at them and laugh This is one of those times Please join us in pointing and laughing at some of the most bizarre and embarrassing marriages in celebrity history 1 Britney Spears and Jason Alexander Remember back in the day when Britney Spears was actually the poster child for sexpot and one of the biggest superstars in the world The 1990 s were crazy is what we re taking from this Anyway it s pretty well known that over the years she has had some pretty dramatic and very public breakdowns including shaving her head and being a generally horrible mother She even married Kevin Federline which is enough to qualify her for this list But you know what We re going to give K Fed a break here and instead focus on Britney s insanely short marriage to Jason Alexander No not the guy who played George Costanza on Seinfeld though that would have been pretty awesome Instead we re talking about some other Jason Alexander You know the one no one had ever heard of before and promptly forgot about as soon as the two split up And just how long did that take 55 freaking hours It was right around this point in time we knew that Britney might not be all there 2 Drew Barrymore and Tom Green If you are anything like us you forgot these two were ever an item right around the same time you forgot that Tom Green is a person who exists His flash in the pan fame lasted approximately as long as their flash in the pan marriage which spanned 163 days Drew Barrymore is basically Hollywood royalty hailing from one of the most famous big screen families in the history of Tinseltown She s been famous literally her whole life and of course suffered the same pitfalls many other child stars endure That s still no excuse to marry Tom Green though Drew The shocking Canadian comedian is really just one of the weirdest most annoying comics in recent memory Here is a guy who is tolerable in small doses and we do give him credit for trying to be Sasha Baron Cohen before Sasha Baron Cohen with his shocking real life encounters with people The pair was engaged for a year which is more than twice as long as they were actually married 3 Michael Jackson and Lisa Marie Presley You know how everyone says

  • 4 Strange Celebrity Death Conspiracy Theories - Weird Worm
    Paris apartment His lover at the time Pamela Caurson found him dead in the bathtub A great deal of controversy surrounds Morrison s death because an autopsy was never performed allegedly because there had been no signs of foul play The death was first ruled as heart failure despite Morrison s physician declaring his heart was in perfect health when he left for Paris A three day media blackout following his death didn t help matters either Conspiracy theories surrounded the death of the Lizard King almost out of the gate and many accounts of his death given in memoirs interviews and films contradict each other Most accept the theory that he died of a heroin overdose though we may never know for sure Lizard man apparently The Conspiracy Of course an autopsy wouldn t prove much if someone were murdered with magic In an effort to prove that they re totally open minded conspiracy theorists say that Morrison s previous lover Patricia Kennealy Morrison killed him with some sort of witchcraft In 1970 the two were married by a Celtic hand fasting ceremony wherein the two cut one another s wrists and drank their blood according to Patricia anyway no one else has stepped forward as witnesses to this event Both had varying interest in the occult and Patricia in particular had a rather unique supernatural background Naturally it should only make sense that Patricia killed Jim through some sort of wizardry Witch apparently Oddly enough death by magic missile isn t the oddest Morrison conspiracy theory passed around Did you know he was an agent of MK Ultra 2 David Carradine The Death David Carradine appeared in over one hundred films and was loved as both a leading man and the star of B movies At age seventy nine he was still working on several projects so it was just a tad shocking when he was discovered nude and hanging in a Bangkok hotel room in June of 2009 At first thought to be a suicide it was eventually ruled an accidental suicide via auto erotic asphyxiation That s cutting off oxygen to the brain for the purpose of sexual excitement for those of you not in the know Anyway one of Carradine s ex wives revealed after his death that he had a fondness for such practices so it seemed a likely explanation We all have skeletons in our closets and now Carradine has one more than most The Conspiracy After portraying a wandering monk in the wild west meets far east television drama Kung Fu Carradine developed an avid interest in martial arts Attorney Mark Geragos representing Carradine s family at the time of his death thus connected the dots that the actor was assassinated by the criminal underworld He says that Carradine as a martial artist had an active interest in investigating secret societies Apparently he discovered something he shouldn t have and he was murdered There s some evidence to suggest there was at

  • 6 Successful Celebrity Crossover Careers - Weird Worm
    to successfully cross over from one career to another 1 Mark Wahlberg That is indeed Mark Wahlberg Nuff said Mark Wahlberg is a highly respected actor who has appeared in a number of meaty roles that showcase the breadth and depth of his talent For example he plays a boxer called Irish Micky Ward who struggles with career and family issues in The Fighter Staff Sergeant Sean Dignam in the twisted back stabbing conundrum that is The Departed and criminal mastermind with a heart of gold Charlie Croker in the remake of The Italian Job Not to mention his equally great performances in The Perfect Storm Three Kings and Boogie Nights So it will perhaps come as a surprise to some that his serious talented actor was once known as Marky Mark a prototypical early 90 s rapper And perhaps even more of a surprise that he performed the dance song Good Vibrations along with The Funky Bunch a song which became a 1 hit in several countries including the US If you were born in the 80 s or before chances are good you ve heard this song and probably had it stuck in your head more than once Even if you were born later you might have heard it in The Mighty Ducks Analyze This and Rock Star That s pretty impressive for a celebrity crossover career 2 Jennifer Lopez J Lo is surprisingly the most modest of this group of Fly Girls A young Jennifer Lopez a k a J Lo was nothing if not persistent in her determination to become a star She even turned down going to law school bet her parents were thrilled about that one in order to establish a career as a dancer Although given her later record of success piled on top of more success we think that if she d stuck with lawyering she probably would have been awesome at it as well Jennifer started out by taking dance classes and eventually managed to work herself up to an appearance as a Fly Girl on In Living Color She had other roles after that such as performing the lead in the movie Selena Her performance was widely lauded although some people got upset that they chose a Puerto Rican to play the roll of the Mexican singer J Lo enjoyed singing in the movie so much that she decided she might as well become a musician in addition to being a movie star After all how hard could it be And so she s been owning both the music and movie worlds ever since winning tons of awards and recognition in part for being the first actress singer to have a number one movie and a number one album in the same week And of course raking in money for herself and those associated with her 3 Zooey Deschenal Munchausen by Proxy coolest band name ever Why did they have to break up after only four songs Looking at the

  • 5 Celebrities With Unexpected Hobbies - Weird Worm
    hours of Oprah Winfrey and Judge Judy every day For some writing is a good hobby to keep those creative juices flowing Others enjoy collecting baseball cards or stamps Celebrities are no different and may in fact be more in need of hobbies than anyone else After all when you re that insanely wealthy and have that much free time on your hands you need to fill the void with something For Brad Pitt it s collecting metal sculptures For Bono it s attempting to bring about world peace and end famine For Gerard Butler it s banging as many women as humanly possible But some other celebrities have some hobbies that well you might not expect 1 Johnny Depp Plays with Dolls At this point we re pretty much ready to chalk up anything Johnny Depp does as delightfully eccentric There s a reason all of his characters are so insanely quirky that they come off as well insane The man himself is a bit on the odd side but in a devilishly charming way With that in mind it still came as something of a surprise to learn that Johnny Depp enjoys playing with dolls No not just collecting dolls or anything like that He actually really truly enjoys playing with them We re talking Ken and Barbie tea party sort of stuff Now in truth this came about pretty naturally Depp has two young children and it all began when he would sit down and play with his dolls with them However by all accounts including from his own mouth it s become something he considers to be truly one of his favorite pastimes No not the act of playing with dolls with his kids the act of playing with dolls alone Apparently he likes to give the dolls all sorts of wacky voices and characters to the point where he s been quoted saying at one point his daughter got fed up and told him to knock it off And he probably plays with himself ALL THE TIME 2 Simon Cowell is Watching You From Up in a Tree Simon Cowell is famous for one thing being a judgmental jerk with really weird hair and tight black t shirts He s also famous for being insanely wealthy and forcing loads of aspiring and awful pop singers on us over the last decade Typically you would expect him to keep his judging of people to the network airwaves but alas that s not the case Because one of Simon Cowell s favorite pastimes is being a peeping Tom We aren t just talking about casual people watching either Cowell admitted to a British newspaper back in 2008 that he actually has a telescope installed in his house for the sole purpose of spying on all of his neighbors If that sounds familiar it s because Cowell began this hobby after seeing the Dudley Moore film 10 in which the protagonist does the exact same thing Oh and
