As we say farewell to 2013, we remember the moments that made us cringe, laugh, shake our heads, and gaze with amazement, shock or disgust.
From Miley Cyrus‘ twerkin extravaganza, to shameful celebrity Twitter beefs, there’s no denying that 2013 was full of ratchet behavior.
So what type of act must you commit in order to qualify yourself to compete in this category? Well let’s see, we already added twerkin’ and Twitter beefs onto the list, but how does cussing out the paparazzi, explicit boob/ass selfies, reality TV drama and our personal favorite, stealing $65,000 worth of frozen chicken wings, sound? Our thoughts exactly, which is why this list is oh-so necessary.
Now, without further adieu; let’s begin our most ratchet moments with Chris Brown‘s verbal attack on a valet who was simply just doing his job.
1.) Chris Brown threatens a valet
It all went down after Breezy left a charity event in March and decided he didn’t need to pay his $10.00 valet fee because his car was only in the lot for 30 minutes. Ugh, Come on CB. Really? $10.00 … really?
Relive the ratchet moment below:
2.) Yeezus gets flashed by the paparazzi and snaps
Our next ratchet moment comes from one of 2013’s most talked about celebs. Who can it be? Mr. Kanye West of course, the man with all the answers. Aside from his entertaining rants this year, Yeezy also exploded on the paps numerous times and to our excitement, most of them were caught on camera:
“Don’t take another motherf*ckin photo!”
3.) Biebs and the London paps
We have room for one more celebrity lashing out at a cameraman. This one comes from Justin Bieber, who jumped out of a car and cussed a pap out while in London.
Peep it down under:
4.) Instagram Ratchetness
Nicki Minaj owns her ratchetness, displaying it loud and proud. Here are examples:
The rapper showed off her delectable chest all throughout the year.
She also twerked for us in a swimming pool.
Rihanna plastered her cake all over Instagram this year. While on set of her “Pour It Up” video, Rih snapped this revealing photo, but it was taken down shortly after it went up. However as you know, once something is put online, it’s there forever. Thanks, RiRi.
All we see is…CAKE.
She’s been on. Beyonce kept it thrill and (ratchet) on the ‘gram this year. Don’t believe us? Scroll down and see for yourselves.
Miley kept it…well.. Miley.
Chief Keef…no words
2013 MTV VMAs
5.) Miley Cyrus & Robin Thicke
Now, we can’t talk about this year’s VMAs without mentioning THIS. Man, Miley had one hell of a year, but her most memorable moment happened right on that VMA stage.
Her twerk-filled performance with Robin Thicke broke Twitter records and increased Miley’s popularity overnight. Priceless ratchet moment.
6.) Taylor Swift caught swearing at ex-boyfriend Harry Styles
Did she, or didn’t she? Taylor was caught mouthing something that looked like, “Shut the f*ck up” after One Direction wins an award. Decide for yourself up top, but Selena Gomez’s expression confirms our theory that she indeed, did.
7.) Lady Gaga ditched her pants during her performance and it looked like this:
We applaud Gaga for showing us her goodies, even if it was ratchet as hell.
8.) The-Dream’s Grammy outfit
We would like to thank the swap meet for our next ratchet offender. While the rest of the music industry kept it dapper during Grammy night, The-Dream decided to wear this ensemble instead.
It was so messy, Jay Z even dissed his friend for leaving the house looking like that.
9.) Rihanna Vs. Ciara
Remember when celebs didn’t beef with one another in a public forum? Yeah, neither do we.
Rihanna however, is known for causing a stir on social media for the world to see. Back in March, RiRi’s bestie tweeted this picture along with the caption: “#BodyParty (bathroom acapella version) #London” – clearly dissing Ciara.
At first CiCi thought they were supporting her then-newly released single and retweeted the photo. But after fans informed her that it was in fact a diss towards her, Ciara snapped back at the girls, writing:
“Don’t have time 4 the silliness. Grow Up and Do Something Positive with ya selves for once. God Bless.”
Of course, this erupted into a Twitter war between Ciara, Rihanna and best friend, Melissa Forde.
10.) Rihanna Vs. Teyana Taylor
Rih was at it again in September. This time, Teyana Taylor was her new target.
After posting an Instagram video (above) of her hairstylist wearing a wig and singing the same Anita Baker song Teyana just posted, things got ugly quick. Of course, the girls (Melissa Forde included) took their beef to Twitter.
Teyana responded with, “Don’t play wit me Rihanna. F*ck all this industry shit, YOU & I know each other VERY well. Throwing subs 4 wat? U got my #, don’t show off.”
It took a turn for the worse when Rihanna called Teyana a “broke bitch,” which then resulted in TT changing her Twitter background picture to Rih’s disturbing 2009 Chris Brown incident.
The outcome? Teyana lost her Adidas deal and Rihanna was called a bully. If this isn’t ratchet, we don’t know what is.
11.) Katy Perry Vs. Chief Keef
Who would even start a Twitter war with Katy Perry? Chief Keef, that’s who! The Chicago-born rapper threatened Perry after the singer dissed his song, tweeting:
“Just heard a new song on the radio called “I hate being sober” I now have serious doubt for the world.”
Chief Keef’s response?
“Dat bitch Katy Perry Can Suck Skin Off Of my Dick.”
“Ill Smack The Shit out her.”
12.) Nicki Minaj Vs. Mariah Carey
This whole situation was a mess. The iconic singer and Nicki’s relationship fell apart when they began their judging duties on American Idol. During an interview, Mariah told Barbara Walters that she felt unsafe around Nicki and so she hired extra security. Naturally, Nicki didn’t keep her thoughts to herself and so she tweeted the following:
“Bwaha! Burn? Shes sad i tied her record for Hot 100 entries in only 3 years of being in the game. Yep, a black female rapper.”
She continued with:
“What u SHOULD be doing (wit your messy ass) is asking why a woman SO successful at her age, is still so INSECURE, and bitter.”
tsk, tsk, tsk.
13.) Azealia Banks Vs. A$AP Rocky/Rita Ora/Pharrell etc.
We don’t know why Azealia Banks decided to go in on Rita Ora, A$AP Rocky and Pharrell this year, but it sure was entertaining.
Her first target? Rita Ora. Azealia tweeted:
“Lol Rita Ora is so thirsty. She climbed over the wall of my dancers dressing room to snap photos.”
“She’s mad she’s Rihanna’s understudy.”
But she was extra annoyed with A$AP Rocky though, tweeting about his sexual preference and all:
Rocky fought back.
Their messy Twitter beef went on for a minute, read more here.
Azealia’s latest victim was Pharrell. Just last month, she blamed him for not supporting her “ATM Jam” track.
“The reason ATM jam did poorly is because pharell changed his mind about wanting to be associated with me after he had his lite skin comeback.”
Careful not to burn anymore bridges, Azealia.
14.) Gucci Mane vs. EVERYBODY
Gucci Mane popped off at Jeezy, T.I., Yo Gotti, Nicki Minaj, Drake, Waka Flocka, 2 Chainz, Tyga and the list continues. Peep the ratchet tweets below:
“I got pix of nikki n my bed I got tape off rocko begging 4 his? got pix of 3sum k kaior. Dm askdem ciara kelly fantasia mya buffy maliah?
“Tell drake he a true male groupie I don’t need u u 2 much a, sissy stop tryin b me. Chec dat bitch instagram. True groupie”
“Tell tyga. Thas asshole hit good. Chyna. Free. Stan. My haitian boss. Nigga.”
“Fucking jeezy main thang currently ask her”
Sigh. Moving on..
15.) Lil Wayne’s “I f*cked Chris Bosh’s wife” rant
After Lil Wayne was banned from attending NBA events, he popped off during a Houston show, throwing shade at the Miami Heat and even claiming he banged Chris Bosh’s wife. Yikes.
16.) Papoose pulls a Lil Mama at Hot 97’s Summer Jam stage
Papoose wasn’t scheduled to perform at Hot 97’s annual Summer Jam concert in June, but that didn’t stop him from jumping on that stage. He came out right after Kendrick Lamar‘s set and performed “Get At Me,” without an introduction. He managed to steal the show and his unwelcome surprise was talked about for days after. Straight up opportunist. This qualifies as a most definite ratchet moment.
17.) Sharkeisha and the smack heard ’round the world
The disturbing video, which went viral in a matter of hours, features a girl who goes by the name of Sharkeisha, smackin’ the crap out of ShaMichael, her defenseless victim. And of course it’s all because of a boy. Sharkeisha has since been arrested and charged with assault.
18.) Georgia men arrested for stealing frozen chicken wings
Oh yes, this happened. Dewayne Patterson and Renaldo Jackson from Doraville, Georgia were arrested in January and charged with a felony theft after stealing $65,000 worth of frozen chicken from a storage. What else can we do but laugh?
Ratchet TV Moments
19.) A$AP Rocky & Danny Brown rub and lick Kathy Griffin’s breasts
Yes, it’s exactly how it sounds. When the rappers appeared on the comedian’s late night Bravo talk show Kathy in February, things got ratchet real fast once A$AP begun rubbing and licking Kathy’s breast. Danny joined in on the fun, kissing Kathy’s stomach. Watch above.
20.) Love & Hip-Hop: Atlanta
This year, reality TV was horribly good. The second season of L&H: Atlanta consisted of Joseline proposing to Stevie J, Mimi and Karlie Redd getting boob jobs, and Kirk cheating on his then-pregnant wife Rasheeda. But the ratchetness went to another level during their reunion special.
Stevie J threw money at Nikko
While looking at the footage of his cheating, Kirk showed no signs of remorse and even began to laugh as his wife sat close by. SMH.
And although Erica and her baby daddy Lil Scrappy aren’t together, she continued to threaten Shay (Scrappy’s ex).
Just when you thought Love & Hip-Hop couldn’t get any more ratchet, the new season of New York premiered and crushed any doubt we had.
21.) L&H: NY is in the middle of its 4th season.
So far, Yandy’s baby daddy Mandeecees is away serving time in jail..
Erica Mena has switched teams and is now dating newcomer, Cyn Santana…
And the world couldn’t believe it when Peter Gunz turned his side chick into his main chick and his main chick into his side chick.
22.) Beyonce’s “Bow Down/I Been On”
No one saw this one coming, but Queen Bey managed to create an internet frenzy when she released “Bow Down/ I Been On.” In the song, Beyonce sings “Bow down bitches, bow down bitches,” offering a not-so-friendly reminder that the throne belongs to her. We love our ratchet Bey.
23.) Mr. Cee’s arrested for soliciting a prostitute..again.
New York radio station Hot 97’s legendary DJ was arrested in May for the second time and charged with soliciting a male prostitute, who turned out to be an undercover officer. Once audio footage of Mr. Cee trying to pick up a different male prostitute surfaced online, he decided to give his resignation. But he came back just one day after, with an emotional interview with the station’s morning show.
24.) Lady Gaga and R. Kelly’s “Do What U Want”
The video for “Do What U Want” starring Lady Gaga and R. Kelly has not been released yet, but a sneak peek has and it looks a little something like this..
Terry Richardson is directing the music video, so we can expect more ratchetness where that came from.
If 2013 produced all this.. just imagine what 2014 has in store for us.
