11. Lady Gaga
A singer who has routinely and openly courted controversy over her career, it should come as a surprise to nobody that Gaga has her fair share of detractors. Racking up a bevy of hit songs over the years like Bad Romance, Telephone, Applause, Born This Way, and far too many others to list here, she has proven herself a master of releasing catchy tunes.
Branching out into acting in movies like Machete Kills and Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, among others, her greatest acting credit came this last year when she won a Golden Globe for her role in American Horror Story. An outspoken proponent of the LGBTQ community, she likely knew far in advance that her laudable position was going to be both respected and decried.
She is alleged to have committed blasphemy with her controversial music video for the song Alejandro, where an actor portrayed Jesus and Gaga dressed as a nun, to name just a few of its uneasy moments. Takes on her private life are no less controversial as best evidenced by reports that after she stayed at London’s Intercontinental Hotel she left behind a bathtub filled with blood. These tales have caused some to see her as a tool of the Devil.
