The 18-year-old pop star isn’t the first celeb to end an interview prematurely.
Who are some other stars who couldn’t handle the heat?
In a May Entertainment Tonight interview, Steve Jones asked Megan Fox if she would be “giving” anyone a baby anytime soon, slyly referencing numerous reports that she was pregnant.
“I know where you’re going with this,” the 26-year-old Transformers star said, laughing off the question.
But her her publicist wasn’t amused — and quickly ended the interview.
In June 2012, Fox showed she was indeed expecting her first child with her husband of two years, Brian Austin Green, as photos of him kissing her baby bump surfaced.
In May 2012, during promotion for her film Battleship, an interviewer asked Rihanna about her love life — she was reportedly seen leaving Ashton Kutcher‘s home a few weeks prior. The singer replied: “It’s very frustrating. Almost as frustrating as being asked about it. I mean, what’s the point?” She then walked away from the interview. Watch below.
It was a bit of role reversal when The View hosts Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg walked out during an interview with conservative TV personality Bill O’Reilly. As the group had a heated discussion about the proposal to build an Islamic cultural near Ground Zero in New York City, O’Reilly said, “Muslims killed us on 9/11!” Behar and Goldberg walked away from the interview.
In 2009, beauty queen Carrie Prejean walked out during an interview on Larry King Live after King asked her why she dropped her lawsuit against the Miss USA organization for libel and unauthorized release of medical records. The rumored reason was that a sex tape of Prejean was found, and would possibly be released. Prejean told the host that his question was “extremely inappropriate.”
During promotion for the 2010 film Robin Hood, Russell Crowe and a BBC Radio 4 interviewer got into a debate about the character’s origins, and whether he was British or Irish. The interviewer suggested Crowe made Robin Hood sound Irish, to which Crowe replied, “You’ve got dead ears, mate.”
Before Marc Anthony split from Jennifer Lopez in July 2011, he was interviewed by Univision, and was repeatedly asked about the sex tape scandal involving Lopez and her ex-husband Ojani Noa. He refused to comment, and walked out of the interview.
Do you think it’s appropriate when celebs cut interviews short? Or should they answer the questions they’re asked? Sound off in the comments.
