17 Famous Faces Who Were Expelled From School

Kicked out! Even the great and the good are sometimes expelled from school…

 


Percy Bysshe Shelley

Expelled1 17 Famous Faces Who Were Expelled From School

 

The legendary Romantic poet attended Eton College, where he refused to take part in fagging and was mercilessly bullied. Despite giving electric shocks to his tutor and blowing up a tree with gunpowder, he was not actually expelled. That came later, when he was sent down from Oxford for scandalising the place with his atheistic writings.

 

Albert Einstein

Expelled2 17 Famous Faces Who Were Expelled From School

 

Nothing clever about the great man’s behaviour. Initially suspected of being ‘retarded’, he was eventually expelled for the effect his bad attitude was having on classmates.

 

Keith Allen

Expelled from Brentwood boarding school school at the age of 13, then sent to borstal two years later, where he ‘had a great time’.

 

 

Lily Allen

Expelled3 17 Famous Faces Who Were Expelled From School

Like father, like daughter. Expelled from an impressive selection of the country’s most expensive schools, usually for drinking, smoking, and ‘doing things that I shouldn’t have been doing with boys that I shouldn’t have been doing’.

 

 

Humphrey Bogart

Expelled4 17 Famous Faces Who Were Expelled From School

 

Expelled from the prestigious Phillips Academy, although there are differing versions of this. Reasons given include throwing the headmaster (or a groundsman) into a lake, smoking and drinking, low academic performance and insulting the staff.

 

 

Cary Grant

Expelled5 17 Famous Faces Who Were Expelled From School

 

Expelled from Fairfield Secondary and Higher Grade School for climbing a wall into the girls’ toilets with a friend.

 

Salvador Dali

Expelled6 17 Famous Faces Who Were Expelled From School

 

Expelled from the Academy of Art in Madrid for ‘disturbing the peace’ and criticising one of the professors. In his opinion none of the staff was qualified to judge his work.

 

 

Boy George

 17 Famous Faces Who Were Expelled From School

 

Expelled aged 15 from Eltham Green, where he truanted regularly. ‘My parents had no idea, because I used to intercept all the teachers’ letters,’ he recalled. ‘In the end they sent around 55 letters, so my mum finally found out I hadn’t been to school for seven weeks.’

 

 

Willem Dafoe

 17 Famous Faces Who Were Expelled From School

 

‘I was expelled from school for making a pornographic film,’ he said. ‘I was just a young boy in Wisconsin; anything to get out of there.’

 

 

Snoop Dogg

Expelled9 17 Famous Faces Who Were Expelled From School

 

Expelled at the age of 10 from Southern Cleveland Elementary School in California, for indecent exposure.

 

 

Courtney Love

Expelled10 17 Famous Faces Who Were Expelled From School

Nothing Earth-shattering: expelled for smoking and truanting.

 

Richard Branson

Expelled11 17 Famous Faces Who Were Expelled From School

According to Branson’s own version of events, he was attending Scaitcliffe boarding school when, aged 13, he was caught sneaking out of the bedroom of the headmaster’s 18-year-old daughter: ‘The headmaster rang my dad and said to come and pick me up the next day. So I wrote this suicide note to someone I knew would open it immediately and go straight to the headmaster.’

Meanwhile he went to a nearby cliff-top, at which point the note was found, and he accepted the headmaster’s offer of a beating instead of expulsion.

 

 

Kevin Spacey

Guy Ritchie

Amy Winehouse

Expelled14 17 Famous Faces Who Were Expelled From School

Famously expelled for piercing her nose… or was she? Her former headmistress, Sylvia Young, says this is a myth, although she was disruptive and did insist on wearing prohibited earrings. ‘I feel sad that Amy thought she’d been expelled,’ said Sylvia. ‘I would never have expelled her.’

 

Jackie Collins

Expelled15 17 Famous Faces Who Were Expelled From School

The Queen of the bonkbusters was expelled, at 15, from Francis Holland School for truancy, smoking, and selling copies of her own dirty limericks.

Donald Trump Falls Foul of Fred West Prank (Photo)

OH dear.

We know Donald Trump is a bit thick, but today he excelled himself… and that’s saying something.

In the past, he’s spat that Barack Obama isn’t a real American, demanding to see passports and all that, while back in the ’70s, he was accused of being a massive racist when he called for the death penalty in full page adverts of three black teenagers who were accused of raping a jogger, but exonerated. Oh, and in a book, John R. O’Donnell – former president of Trump Plaza Hotel & Casino – said that Donald once uttered that “laziness is a trait in blacks”.

This isn’t all old news though. Only last year, Trump tweeted that: “According to Bill O’Reilly, 80% of all the shootings in New York City are blacks-if you add Hispanics, that figure goes to 98%, 1% white”.

He’s also made wild claims that vaccines are related to autism, which has been proven to be a complete crock.

As well as Krept & Konan and Sam Smith, Fuse ODG, Beyonce, Meridian Dan, Tinie Tempah, FKA Twigs, Katy B, Chris Brown, Kendrick Lamar and MNEK get a look-in too.

In even better news, the ceremony will be broadcast on ITV2 this year.

This year’s nominees represent an incredible crop of artists. I find it particularly exciting to see so many underground artists featured, who’ve reached new heights over the last year and broken into the wider consciousness.”

“It’s testament to their talent and their determination to succeed and we are very proud to witness their successes to date. This year’s show at Wembley is set to be nothing short of spectacular”.

HAVING realised that two fake Jordans is hackneyed, Alisha Hessler got three boobs and changed her name to Jasmine Trivdevil.

The Sun has shared a few words with the model – although the paper’s  “exclusive” lacks any of the details we found out abut the newest sensation, such as her police booking photo for an alleged fraud, a bout of man-shaming (a crime that happened because she – and only she – said it had)  and a massage with with a Happy Meal.

The BBC says:

“Although all programmes are reviewed before broadcast, unfortunately this brief appearance was missed. It was removed from iPlayer as soon as we were made aware and replaced with a re-edited version. We apologise for any distress caused.”

Jake Bugg: Everything That’s Wrong in Modern Music

PA 20727527 Jake Bugg: Everything Thats Wrong in Modern Music

 

ONCE upon a time, rock and pop lived together in perfect harmony and music fans didn’t feel the need to pick sides. Then, at some point in the ’80s, indie music came and spoiled it all, taking up the same opinion as people like Morrissey, who needlessly hit out at anything that was vaguely popular.

In 2014, too many White Artists With A Guitar (WAWAGs, pronounced Waaaaaaaah Wags) feel the need to hit out against pop music because it makes them feel more authentic when they talk about ‘real music’ and other horsepiss.

Picture date: Friday, May 7, 2010.

 

THE increasingly bizarre Kay Burley has been doing her thing on Sky News again, this time referring to a Yes campaigner in the Scottish Independence Referendum as ‘a bit of a nob’.

We should hold our own referendum on the spelling of nob/knob when referring to the male genitalia.

The Best Worst Last Films by Legendary Actors

wagons east The Best Worst Last Films by Legendary Actors

 

DEATH is a terrible inevitability. You could pop your considerable clogs at any given moment. You might be half way through a banana. You could be mid-poo, like Elvis. You could be *this close* to finishing that computer game that proved so difficult all those years. You might suddenly die just before someone finishes a joke.

Worse than all these things put together, is when great actors die before they’ve had the chance to do one last film that is any good.

There’s a whole host of brilliant actors who have been in absolute crap – Robert De Niro in ‘The Adventures of Rocky & Bullwinkle’, Michael Caine in ‘Jaws: The Revenge’, Kevin Spacey in ‘Fred Claus’, Faye Dunaway in ‘Dunston Checks In’ and Al Pacino in Adam Sandler’s beyond woeful ‘Jack & Jill’.

However, they all got another shot at correcting the blips on their showreels.
