Hot messes aren't just disaster areas. They're not just scandal makers. They're a very specific breed of person who is persistently crazy in both style and substance. Someone who deteriorates or intensifies or explodes over time. Someone you can't believe actually exists. Yes, they're pitiful, they're bonkers, and some are under the influence, but they're also mesmerizing. Here's our list of the hottest messes of the decade. Enjoy!


The Oscars
Just when you think the Oscars can't get any worse/longer, they do. Remember that ridiculous interpretive dance they produced while the Three 6 Mafia sang "It's Hard Out Here For A Pimp"? Remember when they gave "Crash" the Oscar? it really sets the standard for the most boring, self-indulgent, hot mess event of the year.
