The delusional celebrity has become an old trope in America. The imagery is familiar to all of us. The famous, beautiful person with the fancy wardrobe and all the money, completely out of touch with the common man. One popular meme for this is Lucille Bluth from Arrested Development, who once said, “It’s one banana, Michael. What could it cost? $10?”
But fictional wealthy matriarchs aside, there are plenty of real celebs that have been branded as completely delusional. Let’s take a look at our top 15.
15. Alec Baldwin
Alec Baldwin is best known these days for his on-going impersonation of President Trump on Saturday Night Liveand as the voice behind Boss Baby. But the accomplished actor, who is quick to point out his involvement in championing marriage equality, has had a bit of a problem with dropping homophobic slurs. Like, several times.
What’s more, Baldwin once penned a completely tone-deaf essay in Vulture for the purpose of defending himself against such accusations.
Drake has been all over the internet the last few years, transforming into more than one popular meme. But whether it’s his latest beef with Pusha T or some of the head-scratching stuff he says, Drake has to make it onto the list of most delusional celebrities.
How about the time that he complained on Twitter about the Rolling Stone bumping him from the cover of the magazine for actor Philip Seymour Hoffman? It’s understandable that he would be angry, except for the fact that Hoffman had just passed away unexpectedly.
