There are many celebrities today that have narcissistic traits within their personality. Narcissism can be defined as having an inordinate fascination with oneself, an inflated sense of one’s own importance and a deep need for admiration.
As a celebrity it is easy to have a self-inflated ego and believe you are a gift to everyone around you.

Madonnaadmitted during a 2004 20/20 interview that during her “Erotica” period in the 90’s she was being an exhibitionist and saying “look at me.” She continued to state that if she didn’t have a big ego she wouldn’t be where she is today and that she came to a certain point in life to finally realize that one’s ego is like a dog and you have to question if you are walking the dog or is your dog walking you.
