We all have our heroes, those gallant and beautiful stars of stage, screen and studio, but not all of them are perfect. In fact, some of them have even killed people. Granted, not always premeditated in cold blood, but oh, they've killed. Here's a list of 10 celebrities who've ended the lives of other human beings.

To be fair, in some respects, they are like other boy bands: They're easy on the eyes. They're all still teenagers. They have a huge following of barely-post-adolescent girls who tweet and post pictures, statistics, factoids, gossip, videos, etc. And they got a nod from the current power-house of the OMG set when One Direction took the new wonders from down under along on part of their 2013 tour.

span.source {font-size:.8em;} You hear them at karaoke bars, on mixed tapes, and on the easy listening stations. They're burned into your mind, which is sometimes annoying and sometimes perfect. Classic love songs can be grating when you're not in the mood, but when you're feeling sentimental, they're just what you need. So if you're on a date, it's your anniversary, or you're trying to impress your valentine, maybe give one of these tried and true songs a try. You won't get any points for ori... [Read more]
The Boss never stopped putting out good, new music at fairly regular intervals, and most of his studio releases have made it to #1 on the pop charts, with the exception of the underrated 1995 THE GHOST OF TOM JOAD which only made it to #11 ("only" being a term that applies because we're talking about Springsteen). 2012's WRECKING BALL was good.

Musical theatre has its very own awards show, and The Tonys are very prestigious honors. But they aren't the only place where the best of Broadway is recognized. Thanks to the release of cast albums as well as television and film versions of musicals, the Grammys take notice as well. This year, the Grammy Award for Best Musical Theater Album went to Kinky Boots (music written by Cyndi Lauper), making it the newest addition to the hall of fame that was inaugurated in 1959 with The Music Man.
