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.
R&B singer Trey Songz must have been desperate for attention yesterday. The 29-year-old singer-songwriter Tweeted bathroom pics of himself wearing nothing but his Calvin Klein underwear. He would’ve been better off leaving the photos in his cell phone. His dainty package is nothing to brag about.
But hours later, a more peculiar thing happened. Syndicated radio host Rickey Smiley, who is also in desperate need of attention, Photoshopped his head on Tremaine’s body. I understand Rickey is a comedian, but what real man would Photoshop his head on another man’s body? See the original photos after the break.
As one of the lead singers of Destiny’s Child, Beyonce Knowles-Carter never wasted a moment reminding her 2nd lead singer, Kelly Rowland, who the real queen B was. As an unchecked young narcissist, Beyonce was raised to believe the world revolved around her. As she grew older — and her arrogance threatened to destroy her career — Beyonce learned to hide her insecurities and fragile low self-esteem behind a thinly veiled mask. The public only sees what she wants them to see.
Once again, Obama takes the opportunity to make a momentous occasion all about him. Maybe the President of the United States didn’t have any photos of himself with Nelson Mandela?
One of Beyonce’s Stans (Stalker fan) created a petition begging her not to attend Kanye West and Kim Kardashian’s upcoming wedding.
“Now we must do all in our power to stop Beyoncé from attending that god-forsaken wedding,” the Change.org petition reads. “Beyoncé should not be forced to go and sit through that torture while surrounded by the Kardashian pigs.”
A 19-year-old British art student plans to lose his virginity to a male friend in front of a live audience.
Clayton Pettet plans to invite 100 guests to witness his “Art School Stole My Virginity” art exhibit in January in London, England, the NY Daily News reports.
After they clean themselves off, the “artists” plan to ask the audience members what they thought of their performance.
Pettet’s parents supposedly aren’t aware he is gay.
Last night’s episode of MTV’s “Catfish, The TV Show” featured a young, vulnerable lesbian caught in a narcissist’s net of lies and deception. Aaliyah, a homeless woman who works for a non-profit organization, meets Alicia online and quickly falls for her alluring and seductive pixels.
Because Aaliyah is at a low point in her life, she is very vulnerable and easily manipulated by the narcissistic Alicia. Despite having no place of her own, Aaliyah buys Alicia an iPhone and sends her $600 upon request. But Alicia dismisses Aaliyah’s pleas to meet her in person — despite the fact that they live 70 blocks apart in the same city.
