What a Creep: Elvis Aaron Presley (Rock Creep)

What a Creep

Season 8, Episode 2

Elvis Aaron Presley

Elvis Aaron Presley is one of the biggest rock stars of all time and is known as “The King of Rock & Roll.” Beginning with his meteoric rise in the mid-1950s to his sad decline in the 1970s, Elvis is still one of the most popular celebrities in the world with his estate earning $80 million in 2018.

He remains the best-selling solo artist in recorded history. He has had the most songs charting in Billboard magazine top 40. He has the record for selling the most albums on the Billboard 200. He holds the record for most gold records of all time (solo artist) and was posthumously awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2018.

There have been dozens of books and movies made about him and his life.

John Lennon once said he did not think the 60s were truly over until Elvis’ death. Bob Dylan described hearing Elvis for the first time as feeling as if he had busted out of jail.

His sexy onstage presence set America & the world on fire.  The world is filled with Elvis impersonators and his legacy will last forever.

He was also a major Creep when it came to women with much of his time focused on girls as young as 14. He could also be a mean asshole to his close friends, associates, stage crew, and family.

Trigger Warning: Sexual Assault, Predatory Grooming, and Drugs.

What a Creep

Season 7, Episode 10

Gwyneth Paltrow/GOOP

Gwyneth Paltrow is one of the most lauded actresses of her generation with an Academy Award for acting and appearing in the Avengers movies—probably the most successful series of films in history. Her books on healthy living and cooking are best sellers. She is a busy working mom and a successful business owner.

What a Creep: Joss Whedon (Hollywood Creep)

What a Creep  

Season 7, Episode 4

“Joss Whedon”

Joss Whedon is one of the most prolific & successful writers, directors, and producers in the entertainment world. He is the brains behind Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Firefly, Angel, The Cabin in the Woods, and Justice League. He is famous for his strong female characters, witty dialog, and love of the supernatural and geeky things.

He made labeling yourself a feminist a cool thing for men to do. 

He’s also a bit of a Creep as his wife of 15 years (Kai Cole) can attest. She accused him of using his feminism as a “shield” to have affairs with several women throughout their marriage.

Also, he has been accused by actor Ray Fisher of abusive behavior on the set of Justice League. Other actors and crew members have since come forward about his less than professional manner both on and off the set.

Leona Helmsley and her husband Harry Helmsley had a $1.4 billion real estate empire in New York, including the Empire State Building, the Graybar Building, the Flatiron Building, and 26 hotels.
