Bieber‘s mom told Vanity Fair in 2011 that she believed her son was a literal gift from God. Which only lead Bieber comparing himself to The Beatles, Tupac, and Michael Jackson in the same interview. This was the beginning of Bieber’s slow transformed from squeaky clean pop star to bad boy wannabe. Adding to his bad boy persona he allegedly egged a neighbour’s house with his buddies, two weeks later, he was arrested for drag racing while allegedly drunk.
His life also includes drugs, racist jokes, public urination, and lots of assault. Not to mention, storming off stage and leaving fans hanging when his in a bad mood.
Rising up through the country music ranks while transitioning to pop stardom, Taylor Swift‘s initial fame was free of controversy.
Igniting a Twitter feud with Nicki Minaj by injecting herself into Minaj’s criticism of 2015 VMAs, was the first evidence of Swift’s ego getting the better of her. Adding to her tarnished rep she came into the tabloids again with her summer fling with Tom Hiddleston at her 4th of July party in 2016.
Soon after she tried to play the innocent victim when Kanye West’s song Famous debuted, only for Kim Kardashian to burst that bubble by showing recordings on Snap Chat that show Swift mainly approving of the lyrics. Having realized her limits of her fame she has been laying low.

Shia was not far behind Megan Fox in the Transformers franchise by getting fired from the franchise after the third movie. Unlike Megan he didn’t make up with Michael.

Mariah Carey defines diva, acting every bit the part. Carey has the bad reputation for always being late to performances and appointments. The Diva antics cost her a movie part in Will Ferrell’s movie The House (2017). Ferrell’s co-star even commented that Carey was unprofessional and borderline abusive to the director in a Facebook post that has since been deleted.
If anything, he would be the male version of Mariah Carey with an ego that knows no bounds. With twitter rants and even not being afraid to ask Mark Zuckerberg for money. His attitude has cost him his close friendship in Jay Z and his wife Beyoncé.
