Celebrities are often discussed from the aspect of trying to make them more personable to us, but they have much more hidden behind what they show to us than most realize. There are plenty of strange behaviors, violent outbursts, and concerning occurrences in the history of celebrities. We often don’t consider these facts and events when looking at those we idolize, but it’s interesting to take a peek behind that curtain sometimes and alter our perspectives. Here are some baffling facts about strange celebrity behavior you probably don’t know.
While most saw John Lennon as a hippie and peaceful, there are plenty of instances that helped to pull back the wool over our eyes and show his temper. Lennon had a consistent issue with violent outbursts and volatile reactions. In one instance, he even brutally beat his own friend over a comment about John’s sexuality which was suggesting that Lennon was closer than friends with the male Beatles’ manager.
Jennifer has a strange habit when it comes to her dressing room. She makes sure her dressing room is only decorated or furnished with white and that water is the only drink served. She doesn’t like to have distracting or bright colors around when it comes to her décor for the room she spends plenty of time in. It’s not even just a request, it’s something that she demands to happen in any of her dressing rooms.
Weird Al’s Contract
The singer known as “Weird Al” had a special clause in his contract for a large portion of time before he took it out. This portion guaranteed him to be given a new Hawaiian shirt for every concert, and he was granted hundreds of them before he removed that part of his contract. This was quite the interesting addition, and certainly not something you hear of every day when it comes to singer’s contracts.
No Autographs From Martin
Steve Martin doesn’t do autographs for his fans. He has his own printed business cards that have a phrase on them with his signature that he hands out to fans. Not many celebrities have such a routine when it comes to autographs, and this quirky habit certainly is interesting. The business cards read “I met Steve Martin!”, and they’re the substitutes for him spending time autographing something for fans when asked.
Odd Motherhood From Alicia
Alicia Silverstone caught the attention of fans when she posted a video of her feeding her son Bear on her website. This caught their attention because she was feeding him like a mother bird would, i.e. passing food from her mouth to his. She didn’t just do this, she talked specifically about how she feeds him in this way and demonstrated as well. It’s claimed to be her and her son’s favorite way to eat.
Gaga For Ghosts
Lady Gaga actually spent a considerable amount of cash on the spirit world, once spending $50,000 on an electromagnetic meter to detect spirits so she could protect herself. She spoke of the ghost that she was trying to protect herself against, and even knew the name he went by to be Ryan. Plenty of us have experienced spiritual sightings or troubles, but it doesn’t often occur that a celebrity speaks up about these or spends so much money to defend against spirits.
Some of these just fall into a bit odd and can be considered quirky or human, but some seem downright concerning to those of us that didn’t already know. A lot of facts like these are often buried because of how it could taint our view of those in the public eye, but understanding these blemishes in their history can be important for those of us that didn’t know them beforehand. Just like us, there are plenty of celebrities out there that have odd or concerning behaviors that could change how others view them.
