The 15 Best WTF Pop Moments Of 2015 — From Ariana Grande To Iggy Azalea
Whew, 2015 has been quite the dramatic whirlwind year in the pop world! The past 12 months have been filled with notable moments that were honestly at times more exciting than the new music releases.
So we at Idolator decided to sift through the most head-scratching, “Did she really say that?” events over the past year — from victimizing donuts to birthing plastic dolls. Get into our list of 2015’s most WTF moments in pop below.
15. Rihanna’s Obsession With Socks
Instead of promoting things that matter (like her nonexistent ANTI album), Rihanna decided to take on other endeavors — like a collaboration with Stance. The Bad Gal first designed a limited edition sock collection titled “Murder Rih Wrote,” and then released a Christmas edition collection earlier this month.
14. Israeli Hacker Leaks Madonna’s Demos
Songs leaks have always been an issue in the music industry, but in 2015 they ran rampant — especially for Madonna. The singer’s Rebel Heart album (released in March) rollout took a heavy blow in sales after an Israeli hacker was arrested for reportedly stealing her personal computer and leaking the LP demos in early January. The case went on for months in court, until in July the hacker (whose real name is Adi Lederman) was sentenced to 14 months in jail. Justice is served!
13. Kanye West Interrupts Beck At Grammys
The rapper pulled a Taylor Swift-inspired “Imma let you finish — but” moment at the 57th annual Grammys when Beck won Album Of The Year over Beyonce, which seemed to be a joke…until Yeezy had a mini-rant backstage. “Beck needs to respect artistry and he should have given his award to Beyoncé, and at this point, we tired of it,” he boasted. After headlines flew about the fiasco, Kanye had a change of heart and decided to apologize to Beck (…and Bruno Mars too).
12. Kesha Claims Dr. Luke Killed Her Dog
The lawsuit surrounding Dr. Luke allegedly sexually abusing Kesha and ruining her career is definitely not something to joke about, but one report revealed in the ongoing legal battle proved to be the most outrageous. Back in July, singer claimed Dr. Luke threatened to kill her dog if it approached him during one of their recording sessions (according to court documents).
11. Miley Cyrus “Gives Birth” To Doll
At this point, we’re used to Miley Cyrus doing kooky things like posing fully nude for fashion magazines and shoving dildos in her nether regions, but the singer took it to another level when she became the proud mommy of Poo Poo — a plastic baby doll! She documented the occasion on her very entertaining Instagram back in October, which showed Poo Poo’s envious talent of sh*tting flowers. Oh, that Miley!
