It’s no secret that Hollywood can be pretty brutal when it comes to fame. Some people are beloved stars one minute, and a forgotten name the next. Singers, actors, TV personalities and reality show stars know that in order to stay in “the business”, they’ve got to do things that people are actually interested in. When the “normal” interesting things like getting into a relationship/marriage, having a baby or getting a shocking new haircut don’t work, these celebs know they’ve got to do something bigger. That’s usually when things get weird.

Celebrities have done some pretty strange and jaw-dropping things just to stay in the spotlight. They know that the more surprising their “stunts” are, the more likely people are to talk about it for weeks or even months. Some celebs believe that all press is good press, even if they have to endure a few weeks of criticism from the public. At least people are still talking, right? That can sometimes increase the chances that the celeb will land a movie deal, release a single or star in a new show by the time the scandal has died down. Here are 12 celebrities who have done some pretty shocking things just to get attention.

4 Kim Kardashian

3 Azealia Banks

2 Ann Coulter

1 Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga has pretty much built her music career from the bricks of attention-getting gimmicks. She arrived at an awards show sitting inside a giant egg that was carried by man-servants. She wore a dress made of meat in support of PETA. She’s worn dresses and hats made out of plastic bubbles. Lady Gaga also makes videos that are pretty over the top visually, but she claims it’s all for the sake of art. For the most part, her mission has been accomplished, since all eyes are usually on Gaga when she walks into a room. She’s been on a few sold-out tours and her album sales are doing well, so maybe she’s figured out the formula for success after all.
