“Damnnn homie, in high school you were the mannn homie” – 50 Cent
50 Cent popularized the phrase about people falling off and never coming back. Really, though, this phrase could apply to any number of celebrities that used to be somebody. Let’s take a look at the stars that fell totally off from their high points.
Lindsay Lohan - She was the biggest teen star in the world. Now, in just 24 hours, she’ll be headed to the clink. Plus, she’s definitely on that yayo. Just look at those teef.
Ja Rule - Fiddy was probably talking about Ja Rule when he rapped that line. Ja was the biggest rapper in the world, now he’s in the clink with no money and no album. Admit it, though. You loved Ja!
MC Hammer - Can you imagine a worse fall than Hammer? He lost $33 million and got his house foreclosed! Dude is like the Rosa Parks of fall offs. And he hasn’t had a hot song in 20 years.
DMX - In 1998, DMX had two number 1 albums. No one had ever done that before. In 2011, he’s in and out of jail like every other week. But…he’s going to be giving up that crack soon. Isn’t he?
Chris Tucker - He used to rake in tens of millions of dollars for Rush Hours movies. And now he’s getting his house taken away because he didn’t pay those damn bills. Pretty bad fall for the hottest comedian in the world a few years ago.
Dame Dash - Poor Dame. He had millions and millions as the top guy at Jay-Z’s Roc-a-fella records. But that all came to an end when Jigga took his talents elsewhere. Now the IRS is all over him and he’s struggling for cash. And relevance.
Young Buck - 50 Cent really screwed old buddy. Buck was an up and coming star, now he’s broke and 50 won’t let him put out any more new music. Yeah, we’d be crying too.
Romeo - He peaked at like 11. He had a rap career then danced with the stars. Now he’s doing little local commercials? We guess that tuition is no joke. Pay them up anyway you can, Romy Rome.
Tiger Woods - He was the king of the sports world. However, getting caught with his wee-wee in a dozen skanks and a divorce totally destroyed it. Now he’s not even ranked in the top 50 golfers in the world. It looks like Tiger’s days may be over.
Myspace - Millions of people went to Myspace every day. It was worth billions. Now, when was the last time you went to Myspace or opened up your page? There’s no way it was less than three years ago.
The Government - The government used to be the bee’s knees. Now we’re all poor and we can’t even get a good credit score, son! How a whole country have bad credit? Yeah, we’re taking our talents to Canada.
Tiki Barber - He was a great football player. Then he retired and wanted to be the next major broadcast personality. It’s amazing how breaking up your marriage for some little slore can ruin things. Nobody wants him in the NFL and nobody wants him on TV. Bad break.
Christina Aguilera - She’s out jacking up the National Anthem and gaining weight by the gallon these days. That genie don’t fit in a bottle. She needs a damn keg!
