A t-shirt, wow.
Bought from the Vatican
and admired is a bit strong, I couldn't think of a word when I was starting the thread.
I meant loved.
One of the best neurosurgeons who ever lived, decided to go into politics, and ended up talking such enormous amounts of embarrassing nonsense, got nowhere and looked like a fool.
Some of his original works were excellent, (blind watchmaker, selfish gene) but since then he’s gone on this never ending religious bashing crusade, I just think he’s wasting his intellect and he should know better.
I, like most people, thought he was one of the best athletes to have ever lived, an achievement made all the greater by the fact that he's a cancer survivor. Turns out he was a liar, a bully and a cheat.
Great shout, although I don't mind his religious bashing to the point where I don't admire him, but I certainly find the science much more interesting.
I agree with what others here said about Rolf Harris and Gary Glitter.
I don't think that Michael Jackson was a paedo though and I still listen to his music. I agree that he was completely and utterly stupid to invite children to his Neverland Ranch place. This had allowed people to use that as a vehicle to take Jacko to court but led to no convictions and instead milked Jacko with out-of-court settlements. And now in 2019, people are still trying to milk from his estate. These are people who swore themselves under oath in court and have now changed their minds.
I used to admire Hitler but when I found out he turned vegetarian, wow, he went right down in my book.
I mean he did some great work, i heard he designed the kdf funwagon, AKA the Volkswagen beetle.
When I went to Uffizi gallery I noticed that a number of works were attributed to Leonardo da Vinci "and others" (or something along those lines). It made we question how much involvement Leonardo da Vinci actually had.
While I don't really admire as such, when celebrities become political and try to influence voting, they tend to go down in my estimation. Andy Murray would be a good example, imploring people to vote for Scotland independence on Twitter the day before the vote, and then a couple of years later happily accepting a knighthood.
Why should he refuse a knighthood, the referendum didn't propose the abolition of the monarchy in Scotland?
This needs it's own thread and/or TV series!
I have similar feelings, can't think of listening to their music after finding out what a twisted sicko he is.
Almost spat out my tea
Same, I saw them live, had albums but now can’t listen to them. Unbelievable how disturbed some people are and their best friends don’t even know.
Prince Philips driving instructor.
Jon Jones, greatest mma fighter ever, but got busted cheating and stripped multiple times ,waiting for the next time he messes up , tarnished his legacy
I always used to like Richard Branson and thought he was a fairly regular guy, until I read his book which shed some light on a fairly rich upbringing. Silver spoon some might say.
I still like him but it's amazing what you can achieve with rich parents willing to lend you a whole load of money when you're a teenager...
Their 2nd record was awesome! Sadly had to bin it, what a &£@&!! He is. Shame the rest of the band are accosiated with him
Thought you were talking about me for a second!?
Decent call..... should have been the undisputed greatest but i kinda almost hope he isn't.
Sorrt for taking this political, but Corbyn. I hoped for something a little different.
I liked Morrissey, and then he became a right-wing ****.
What exactly is Leonardo da Vinci alleged to have plagiarised?
That's called showmanship. It's not that the trick was easy; it was difficult, but Houdini was just very good at escaping. Since he knew that if he appeared too soon the audience would be disappointed, he very sensibly generated more tension and suspense to keep them entertained.
