We all have our off-days... but these musicians went a little far

You know that time when you went up to your favourite musician to ask for a picture, and they told you they don't take photos with ugly people? No? Well Adam Levine's ex-biggest fan does.

99% of famous musicians, and we meet a fair few in our line of work, are actually surprisingly friendly. If not overwhelmingly effusive, they are at least vaguely polite. Sometimes, though, as the users of Reddit have attested to, they can be downright rude. Here are some examples of the worst ever fan encounters. 

Granted, these testimonies should be taken with a generous pinch of salt - and we should point out, because we're on team Kanye over at Gigwise, that there were a lot of stories of him being a sweetheart - but they still make for good/depressing reading.

  • Smashing Pumpkins' Billy Corgan

  • Maroon 5's Adam Levine

  • Sex Pistols' Johnny Rotten

  • Huey Lewis

  • 30 Seconds To Mars' Jared Leto

  • Kanye West

  • Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong

  • Kid Rock

  • Elton John

  • Prince

  • John Mayer
