Sleeping Bieber, Protesting Lennon, and Notable Bed-Related Moments in Music History
|John and Yoko, staying in bed for peace.|
Biebs isn't the first musician to get into hot water over something bedroom-related. Here are five other notable bed-related moments in musical history.
1. Katy Perry Gets Humiliated by Crap Husband
There isn't a woman on earth who wants to have her photo taken one second after waking up. But when Russell Brand caught then-wife Katy Perry on camera, off-guard and looking decidedly haggard, he just went ahead and put that on Twitter for the entire world to see. After that, the divorce was just inevitable, frankly.
2. In Bed With Madonna
3. Rihanna and Chris Brown: Busted by a Blanket
On New Year's Day, 2013, both Rihanna and Chris Brown hit Twitter to say good morning to the world, in photo-form. The two had been denying being an item again for months, but failed to realize that people would notice they were under the same, rather distinctive, comforter in the photos they Tweeted. Idiots.

4. John and Yoko's Bed-In
In 1969, John Lennon and Yoko Ono believed that if they stayed in bed for long enough, and let enough members of the press watch them, it would bring about world peace -- or at the very least, end the Vietnam War. This was utterly bonkers on a number of levels, but also rather charming, as is evidenced in the documentary about the couple's bed-ins, Bed Peace. Yoko has since said that she and her new husband "were so naive to think that doing the bed-in might help change the world."
5. Hayley Williams Attacked by Hacker
We don't usually care much when famous people's naked cell phone photos leak, but when Paramore frontwoman Hayley Williams got phone hacked and a topless photo of her was promptly posted on Twitter, our tiny black hearts broke for her and her lovely boyfriend (Chad Gilbert from New Found Glory), who clearly was the only person who was supposed to see this. Williams was shaken by the experience but stayed positive, Tweeting: "Thank you so much for all the support. Overwhelming. Today is a new day. Gonna keep my head up high." Attagirl!
