When people become rich and famous, they have a tendency to start considering themselves as Gods, and believe that everything should be bent to their will. When you have millions as disposable income, why not come up with crazy demands for the peasants around you to arrange, to make your life slightly better?

Of course, there are sure to be some celebrities who are down to Earth, and consider everyone as equals. But this article isn’t concerned with those do-gooders. Here are a few celebrities who have come out with some truly outrageous requests.

Kanye West

Kanye West is often found plastered all over the web, causing controversy in one way or another. Not only does the man who claims to be 50% more inspirational than any other human being annoy people with his statements, he also bothers people day-to-day with his demands. When appearing onLater with Jools Holland, the man whose greatest pain in life is that he will never see himself perform live decided that the carpet in the dressing room needed ironing before he could step foot on it. He also requested that the studio should be torn down and rebuilt to his liking.

Paris Hilton

This rich heiress and socialite has it all - the money, the looks, and of course the five-star treatment. From travel in luxury limousines to special red-carpet service at airports , the former star of The Simple Life has never had it easier. And of course, she could give Kanye a run for his money when it comes to special requests. Paris was cast for a cameo part in The Other Guys, starring Will Ferrell, and decided she needed some rather specific supplies to assist her in getting into the role. There was a page-long list of requests, but perhaps the most intriguing one was that there should be live lobsters on hand to be prepared when she was hungry. In the end, her scene was omitted from the film’s final cut.

Christina Aguilera

Best known for Genie in a bottle and being somewhat of a teen sensation to rival Britney Spears, Christina is also well past her prime. She now judges on The Voice, which is another one of those Simon Cowell-inspired shows that churns out one-hit wonders. Apparently, when filming the show, Aguilera demanded to watch every bit of footage that included her, to check that she didn’t look fat. If she thought she did look a tad on the chubby side, she would command the producers to reshoot the whole scene. Maybe just go on a diet or hit the gym?

There really isn’t the space here to discuss all the weird, wacky, and downright extraordinary requests that some of these egotistical maniacs come out with. Justin Timberlake has been known to ask for extra bubbles in his champagne, and Beyoncé must have red toilet paper in her dressing room.

Maybe you just have to be filthy rich and famous to understand.
