Five Celebrity Confrontations On Camera

1.Rosie O'Donnell VS Elisabeth Hassleback. These two used to go at it all the time on the View. The View has always had it's moments of heated conflicts and disagreements on various political issues during their "Hot Topic" segments.

2. Alec Baldwin has a history of past issues with run-ins with the Paparazzi. I do have some sympathy for the guy because clearly these paps are notorious for getting in celebrities faces. In video it appears he was very agitated about being questioned by a female reporter. Losing his temper and cursing her out only brought more attention to the situation. This eventually lead to him being ambushed by a shitload of press. My feeling is this: You're an over privileged rich celebrity. You can afford to hire a driver to pick you up. You don't need to go out there and confront dudes that are trying to take your picture. You can also just ignore them. Calling them names and acting like a total douche isn't going to help your situation. To make things worse, after the whole confrontation, Alec gets into his car and hits the car in front of him when he tries to  pull out of his parking spot. 

3. Billy Joe Armstrong of Green Day broke down at the 2012 I Heart Radio Music Festival and basically had a confrontation with the time clock. The clock displayed they had only 1 minute of stage time left in what appeared to be the middle of their performance set. In the video, he rants  about being left with only a minute yelling "I'm NOT Justin Bieber". ..You know what? GOOD! We don't need any more Bieber. Green Day is a real band and it's annoying that they would have to take a back seat to all these little poptart studio groups and auto-tuned singers. It was reported that the singer entered rehab days later and is now sober. The only funny part of this video is at the end when fails to break his guitar after several attempt. ..after 4 attempts of smashing the guitar, it finally breaks on the 5th slam. 

4. Quentin Tarantino becomes annoyed and gets in a heated confrontation with an interviewer when the host pushes the discussion into the topic of the use of violence in movies. The interviewer continues to press on the subject of violence while Tarantino continues to refuse any discussion on the matter. Basically he goes on to say he doesn't want to discuss this issue because he's already talked about this topic in numerous interviews over the past 20 years. Really? Oh come on.. answering the same questions over and over again is part of doing press for your movies. You want to go on a tv show to  promote your film you need to suck it up deal with it. 

5. Justin Bieber stops traffic after being chased in his car by Paparazzi. Ok. I understand him finally stopping because these paps were chasing him in his car and then asked him why he was driving so fast. Clearly he was driving fast to get away from those scumbags..The problem is another pap pulls up on the other side of the vehicle. Between the three cars they are all blocking the highway in three lanes across. This is ridiculous. I'm not a Bieber fan but I don't blame him for confronting the pap.However, I don't think it was necessary to hold up traffic for as long as he did.  Eventually one lady gets out of her car and says "come on! lets go!"
