The 10 Most Epic Lip Sync Fails
Why is it that we just love when a celeb makes a complete and utter fool of themselves, particularly on live television? Lip synching is a tender topic among musicians. Many admit to hating it, but give up when it comes down to a perfect performance or a mediocre one. Many rely on it to sound exactly like their prerecorded track. Still, some are so void of any real talent that they use it as a crutch to get through the performance. Do you recall any of these epic lip sync fails?

Her bold fashion decision wasn't exactly embraced by mom Kris Jenner, particularly since Kylie did it prior to her sister Kim Kardashian's upcoming wedding.

Jenner, 16, told E! News: "One day I was just like, 'I'm going blue'. They're all really p****d. My mom was like 'you look like a Skittle.' I was like, 'I'm gonna have this for two years now that you said that....

Katy Perry Dyes Her Hair 'Slime Green'

April 8th, 2014 4:03pm EDT
Katy Perry
Katy Perry found a unique way to celebrate Spring: dying her hair several shades of green.

Perry revealed the new 'do, which was cut to shoulder-length, on Instagram. “SLIME GREEN FOR SPRING by my bb's @neeenaboo & @brantmayfield at the @mcmillansalon,” she wrote.

Perhaps its a subliminal advertisement for her latest album Prism, because Perry has dyed her hair several prismatic colors over the years like purple, blue, and red. We're not buying her punk credentials yet, considering she has a Coco Chanel necklace on.

Perry told E!, "I've wanted to go slime green for a long time. It's sp...

The rapper was filmed by a TMZ cameraman (NSFW-ish) who asked if it was an actual date with the pop star. The best part? Riff Raff had his arms around an adult film star as he answered the questions. Even more amusing was that the woman at his side seemed completely unaffected as Riff R...
