Beyonce and Sherri Shepherd

It is a widely held belief that Cajun singer Beyonce Knowles-Carter, 33, hired a surrogate to deliver her and rapper Jay Z's adorable daughter, Blue Ivy, 2.

Another surrogate mother was commissioned to carry a baby girl for former 'The View' host Sherri Shepherd, 47, and her now-estranged husband Lamar Sally. It can be argued that both narcissistic women hired surrogates for entirely selfish reasons. Beyonce because she wanted a carbon copy of herself, and Sherri because she wanted an infant to complete the perfect image of matrimony.

How to Tell If You're Dating a Narcissist

The Huffington Post published an excellent editorial today entitled How to Tell if You're Dating a Narcissist. Narcissists are my favorite subjects because the entertainment industry is crowded with them. Just about every celebrity is a narcissist in one form or another.

One of the world's most well-known narcissists is U.S. President Barack Obama. Obama and his long-suffering wife, Michelle, regularly take separate vacations. But most telling is the fact that the first couple did not spend Valentine's Day (the most romantic day of the year) together.

Beyonce and Blue Ivy

Like most narcissists, singer Beyonce knows how to get our attention. The "Grown Woman" singer published a new photo of her daughter Blue Ivy wearing a crown on her head. The crown, which is custom made to fit the child's head, is a symbol of Beyonce's overinflated sense of superiority projected onto her innocent daughter. Beyonce, whose parents treated her like a gilded object to be put on display, is doing the same to her daughter. There is no doubt that Blue Ivy will grow up to be a narcissist like her mother and father; but by the time she's grown, society at large will be 90% narcissistic. So it may not be such a bad thing.

Raising Narcissistic children We have all done this: we are shown a photo of a friend's child, and our initial response is based on the child's looks ("She's so cute! I can see where she gets her beauty from!")

We tend to especially favor children who are light skinned with long hair. Any culture that is obsessed with beauty and image breeds narcissism. As a result, most narcissists tend to be very good looking.

Narcissism in adults is a personality disorder that stems from abnormal self-developmental in childhood.

Studies show that the sharp rise in narcissists in today's society is directly linked to the explosion in social media. Instagram is a narcissist's playground where the self-obsessed upload their photos to encourage 'likes'. And there are pages on Facebook devoted to ranking a girl's beauty from 1-10.

In a blog on Huffingtonpost.com, sports psychology consultant Nicole Forester referred to social media as an "Epidemic of narcissism".

"We are each hard-wired with the desire to feel relevant. Everyone wants to feel like they matter and are important. Social media provides this outlet, but also promotes being self-absorbed," she writes.
