Celebs Who Let Fame Go To Their Heads

Celebs Who Let Fame Go To Their Heads


Fame is a crazy drug whose highs can cause
some stars to lose touch with reality. Here are some famous celebrities who let their
star status go to their heads. Bieber’s a bad egg After one of his YouTube cover songs caught
the eye of a talent manager in 2009, 13-year-old Justin Bieber found himself with a record
deal and Usher as his mentor. Bieber handled his early fame well, but once
he reached the other side of 18, things started to change for the worse. Bieber earned the ire of music fans in a 2011
Vanity Fair interview when he compared himself to pop culture icons like The Beatles, Tupac,
and Michael Jackson. From there he slowly transformed from squeaky
clean pop star to bad boy wannabe. Even his once adorable relationship with songstress
Selena Gomez suddenly turned into sleazy tabloid fodder, complete with cheating rumors and
paternity suits. In 2014, Bieber’s antics graduated from obnoxious
to criminal. “Deputies descended upon Bieber’s upscale
neighborhood this morning searching for evidence involving the egging of his neighbor’s home. You heard me right.” Less than two weeks later, Bieber was arrested
for drag racing while allegedly drunk. More scandals and accusations would follow
involving drugs, racist jokes, public urination, and assault. Not to mention a habit for storming off stage
and leaving fans hanging if he’s in a bad mood. If you want a case study on the pitfalls of
fame, you can’t go wrong with the Biebs. Mariah is lamb-tastic Mariah Carey defines diva, and she acts every
bit the part. From her rivalry with Whitney Houston, to
her epic shade of Jennifer Lopez, this is clearly Mariah’s World, and we’re all just
living in it. Among other things, Carey has a reputation
for being late, and while that might fly with fans at her concerts, it can wreak havoc for
others. When Will Ferrell stopped by Watch What Happens
Live in June 2017, he revealed Carey lost her chance at a cameo in The House after showing
up four hours late and refusing to do a scene that was approved ahead of time. When host Andy Cohen asked Ferrell if Carey
made any crazy demands for her trailer, Ferrell had a strange answer. “Stuffed lambs.” “Stuffed lambs!” “For her lambies.” “For her lambies!” “Right?” “Which are her people!” We’re pretty sure Carey’s career will survive
missing out on The House. She’s the same woman who demanded a $50 million
inconvenience fee from her ex-fiance James Packer because they had a bad break-up. We doubt she’s losing beauty sleep over a
cameo. Legend in his own mind Kanye West’s ego is legendary at this point,
and the rapper seems to think it’s just one of many legendary things about him. According to Newsweek, for example, West enjoys
comparing his success to that of Steve Jobs and Walt Disney. Though that success hasn’t stopped him from
making insane demands of the wealthy, like his 2016 twitter rant where he tried to convince
Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg to give him $1 billion for what he called, quote, “… Kanye West ideas.” “Um… uh, no.” Among other things, West’s attitude may have
cost him his closest friend and supporter. In November 2016, West went on an unhinged
rant about best bud Jay Z and Jay’s wife, Beyoncé during a concert, then stormed off
stage. Kanye was hospitalized for psychiatric evaluation
a few days later, but insiders allege that stay was purely for insurance purposes. Jay remained quiet until June 2017 when he
dropped his new album, 4:44, which included a direct shot at Kanye. According to Page Six, the real reason for
the feud was West continuing to try to force his wife Kim Kardashian and Jay Z’s wife Beyoncé
into a friendship the latter wanted no part of. An unnamed source told to Page Six, “It’s not organic. It’s not real. Beyoncé is a Southern, God-fearing woman,
despite what you may see when she’s entertaining. She may not have much in common with Kim.” What does the Fox say? Thanks to the blockbuster success of Transformers,
Megan Fox quickly became one of the hottest actresses in Hollywood. Unfortunately for her, comparing director
Michael Bay to Hitler didn’t go over well with executive producer Steven Spielberg,
and her time with the survivors of Cybertron came to an end. Her career languished for years thanks to
her acid tongue and an open letter from Transformers: Rise of the Fallen crew members that detailed
her diva-like behavior on set. Fox and Bay eventually patched things up and
the director graciously cast her as April O’Neil in the 2014 live-action Teenage Mutant
Ninja Turtles reboot. Apparently no one heard Fox comparing any
of the crew to European dictators this time around, but she still found herself in hot
water after negative reviews touched a nerve. At a press conference, Fox said, “Those people can complain, they all go to
the theater. They’re gonna love it, and if they don’t love
it, they can f— off, and that’s the end of that.” Caged by debt Following a string of hits in the ’90s, Nicolas
Cage became one of the biggest stars in Hollywood and was scoring paydays of $20 million per
movie. At one point, the actor was worth $150 million,
which seems like more money than one person could spend in a lifetime. Not Nicolas Cage. Cage owned 15 multi-million dollar homes across
the globe. His real estate portfolio included a $3.4
million haunted mansion in New Orleans. Oh, and by the way, it’s not true he owned
one castle in Europe. He owned two castles in Europe. And just to be safe, he bought a deserted
island. Cage also famously purchased a dinosaur skull
and routinely dropped money on cars, comic books, and shrunken pygmy heads. Unfortunately, while Cage was blowing through
his massive fortune, he was learning that his real estate investment skills weren’t
the greatest. He also kind of forgot to pay the IRS for
a couple of years, which never ends well. While fame and all the baggage that comes
with it creeps up on other celebrities, Lindsay Lohan ran at it full speed. The Mean Girls star aggressively courted paparazzi,
which only cemented her reputation as an out-of-control party girl. The studios couldn’t explain her strange behavior
as a simple case of exhaustion when the Internet was filled with photos of Lohan partying hard. Lohan earned two DUI arrests and was publicly
called out by Georgia Rule costar Jane Fonda. “Lindsay Lohan, one piece of advice: Come
live with me for a while…” “Oh, nice.” “…and get a sense of what normal is supposed
to be like.” Lohan’s career went down the drain. While she was handed opportunities for a comeback,
Lohan continued to be an unpredictable nightmare to work with. The message was loud and clear to Hollywood:
Lohan isn’t worth the risk. Insurance companies wouldn’t touch her, and
directors who cast her were guaranteed days of screaming matches and mysterious disappearances. Captain Jack needs to chill Thanks to the blockbuster success of the Pirates
of the Caribbean films, Johnny Depp became one of the biggest movie stars on the planet. Depp used to have a reputation as a family
man, but in 2013 he made headlines when he broke things off with longtime partner Vanessa
Paradis and quickly tied the knot the much younger Amber Heard. Depp’s marriage to Heard become a hotbed of
controversy and led to numerous reports that the actor was spinning out of control. In 2016, the couple went through a messy divorce
that included Heard accusing Depp of domestic abuse. On top of that, Depp got caught up in a nasty
lawsuit with his business managers, who accused the actor of racking up $2 million in expenses
on top of blowing through $30,000 a month on wine alone. “But why is the rum gone?” To make things worse, Depp was reportedly
a mess on the set of the fifth Pirates movie, and the scuttlebutt is he needed his lines
fed to him through an earpiece. In July 2018, he found himself in more trouble
when a location manager claimed the actor punched him. Despite all that bad press, Depp is still
starring in blockbusters, so either he’s learned his lesson, or he’s hired one heck of a publicist. Chasing Success Chevy Chase was the first breakout star from
Saturday Night Live. He left the show a few episodes into the second
season, looking to parlay his charm and celebrity into a film career. In 2018, he told The Washington Post that
SNL started to go south right around the time he left, saying: “I’d have to say, that after the first two
years, it went downhill. Why am I saying that? Because I was in it? I guess. That’s a horrible thing to say.” Speaking of horrible things to say, Chase’s
comments about some other SNL actors have ranged from insulting to absolutely offensive. Disagreeing with pretty much everyone ever,
Chase said Will Ferrell wasn’t funny at all. He did heap praise on fellow SNL veterans
Dana Carvey, Dan Aykroyd, and Gilda Radner. He thought Eddie Murphy was funny, though
he seemed to think Murphy had it easy. Speaking of Murphy’s famous impression of
Stevie Wonder, Chase said, “It’s not that hard… Your skin’s the same color. You just put on some sunglasses and do this.” Wow. There was apparently chatter in Chase’s post-SNL
days that he could one day take over for Johnny Carson as host of The Tonight Show. Chase arrogantly said that he’d, quote, “…never be tied down for five years interviewing
personalities.” Carson’s response? He said Chase, quote, “… couldn’t ad-lib a fart after a baked-bean
dinner.” Citizen Witherspoon When most people think about out-of-control
celebs, Reese Witherspoon probably doesn’t come to mind. But in 2013, the actress let her fame get
the best of her when her husband and agent Jim Toth was pulled over for drunk driving
in Atlanta. Instead of cooperating with the police, Witherspoon
allegedly began arguing with an officer and found herself charged with disorderly conduct. Even worse, the whole thing was captured on
dashcam video in which Witherspoon can be heard yelling the now infamous line, “I’m an American citizen. I’m allowed to stand on American ground!” What she should’ve done is let the police
arrest her husband for drunk driving, which is exactly what Toth told her. To her credit, the Legally Blonde actress
apologized for her actions and hasn’t shied away from addressing the embarrassing incident. Witherspoon said at a press conference, “I guess maybe we all like to define people
by the way the media presents them, and I think that I showed I have a complexity that
people didn’t know about… I made a mistake. We all make mistakes. The best you can do is say sorry and learn
from it and move on.” Bad blood While rising up through the country music
ranks and pulling off the difficult transition to pop stardom, Taylor Swift’s initial fame
was refreshingly free of controversy. However, Swift’s ego began to reveal itself
when she ignited a Twitter feud with Nicki Minaj by needlessly injecting herself into
Minaj’s criticism of the 2015 VMAs. The two eventually made nice, but The Guardian
called Swift, quote, “… at best patronizing and ignorant; at
worst vacuous and self-absorbed.” Swift courted the spotlight more than ever
in 2016 thanks to her now-infamous summer fling with Tom Hiddleston as well as #Taymerica,
her in-your-face star-studded Fourth of July party that dominated headlines with its professionally
shot Instagram photos. But just two weeks later, Kim Kardashian would
bring Swift’s star crashing down by releasing a series of Snapchats that showed recordings
of Swift mostly approving of the lyrics to Kanye West’s “Famous,” despite acting blindsided
and hurt by them in the press. Swift laid low for most of 2017 until the
November release of Reputation. That album sold nearly two million copies
in just six weeks, so it would seem that any brewing Taytay backlash has died down… for
now.

  1. No Bieber’s a good egg, he was a kid for goodness sake and he’s come a long way

    Mariah is a personality as well as an artist, she’s quite funny if you don’t take everything so seriously

    Kanye’s Sunday Service is pure genius-opioids can put you in the grave, so putting him in rehab is a success by any standard

  2. Mariah Carey? Wtf?
    -There was NO rivalry with Whitney Houston. That’s made up shit.
    -There was some shady things with Jlo. Well that’s because J.Lo straight up stole Mariah Carey’s songs (If We and Loverboy) Tommy Mottola pumped J.Lo up to try and kill Mariah’s career.
    -Her being late is just a rumour. She’s really humble and sweet (e.g. Genius Interview, with her fans,etc..)

  3. Taylor swift is very humble. Should not be on this list. You do know she sometimes sends big amounts of money to fans in need, like once this girl couldn't pay for her college tuition
    (I think). And Taylor found her and helped her cover the money.

  4. J-low and Beyoncé take Kanye off. The only difference between Beyoncé and KimK is she hasn’t done hardcore porn yet. Pretty much everything ells Beyoncé does is soft core anyway.

  5. 6:26 as bad as LL has been, influence from Hanoi Jane would be anything less than normal. That bitch is cra on a whole other level.

  6. in the end you dont live with these people and you cant be 100 percent sure for their character.its these moments in their lives that makes them bad for the rest of the world.when i buy their albums i buy them for their music and songs.not if they are good people
    same when i go to see a movie.Even if reese woothersoon for instance which i met her at a premiere in london and she was sweet she was a big diva so what? you are not gonna see her movies again?when there is a movie on tv you love the last thing comes to mind is that the actor who plays in that film is a big douche so you are gonna watch it anyway
    I hate will farell but if he makes a really good movie i am gonna watch it.
    i hate justin but if he makes a great song i am gonna buy it
    i bought taylor swifts album cause i liked it.
    so its what they offer what counts not if they are good people or not.Also mariah carey in a way payed for her diva moments.She made a movie she was very bad at it cause she is not a good actress and her career went downhill ever since.But still i love to listen her old songs cause she is still a great singer
    The only people i hate with a PASSION are the kARDASHIANS.they are the show biz biggest TRASH lol

  7. Ahh what do you expect they represent basic americans thesecelebrities are no different from their fans and haters and all the "americans" Commenting on this post. Stupid and egoistic

  8. USARMENIA critics птичка прыгает. Щебечет и шалит но все ровно талантлива 💕💕💕💫💫💫💫⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️🎬🇦🇲007

  9. My sister was an extra on the National Lampoon movie and she said everyone LOVED Chevy Chase…said he could've have been nicer. Maybe he was just hard on other stars? Or maybe he was just having fun on that set. Who knows?

  10. I understand what goes on in Kanyes head. He has bipolar and so do I and with that, in times of mania, delusions aren’t new. It’s one of the most recognizable symptom. Homeboy was probably in a manic episode when he said that.

  11. These people are profoundly delusional. They seem to think the rest of us don't have our own lives. I wouldn't even know a Kanye West song if I heard it. I would probably think it was just more bad stupid rap.

  12. Does anyone out there really care? We have to n bored to listen, watch or follow these losers. Go outside n enjoy what is free like our beautiful landscape. Stop watching shut on tv that will screw with your brain n life.
    N the devil is alive n well within these people. All of them are used by the devil to create hatred , evil n unhappiness. Will Ferrell is a cannibal who abused children in demonic rituals. He is a vessel for the evil.

  13. I can't believe that Britney Spears is no included on this. I don't know if there is a celebrity where the title fits so good like with Britney Spears

  14. Chevy Chase may be known as an asshole, but I agree with him about Will Ferrell not being funny. I will watch Chevy's movies before I EVER waste time on a Ferrell one.

  15. I hate Mariah she is unprofessional and has no respect for any one at all she thinks the world revolves around her

  16. Reese Witherspoon lead’s the list. There’s lots of them in hollyweird. The sad part is none of them have an ounce worth of intelligence.

  17. Out of all of this I laughed when she said , Beyoncé is a God-fearing Christian! Hey did you make this video before or after she sang she plugs her menses with the pages of the Bible ! She’s a Pig !

  18. Narcissistic self importance is a trait of psychosis. Anything can set them off. Especially, anyone who doesn't kiss their butts. Sadly, their self importance behavior borders on the same traits as a violent rapist. They enjoy power, and being SO insecure, that they hide that insecurity behind trying to feel superior. In their sick minds, they are above everyone. Sad. As they usually die, alone, afraid, and self loathing.

  19. Usually when celebs like Bieber act out in their teen years – it can be a cry for help for whatever abuse they're going through in the industry.

  20. I cant name one song by Swift, Bieber, or K. West. I only know of Megan Fox for one movie.
    This is not a slight to any of the ones on this video.

  21. johnny depp is crazy. i have never been a fan of justin bieber or mariah carey or linsey lohan. i dont believe its fame, its their character.

  22. So obnoxious. I wonder what life would be like if these celebrities didn't exist. I do like Taylor Swift's music but I never trust a celebrity outside of their music.

  23. This isn't a list about stars allowing fame to enter their heads. It's simply about stars and their respective scandals and controversies. Nothing special about this poorly designed list.

  24. nicholas cage, w/o doubt is THE WORST ACTOR I HAVE EVER HAD THE MISFORTUNE TO WATCH. the only movie he was any good was
