(Newser) – Who says you have to be female to be a diva? Radar rounds up 25 of the biggest divas in Hollywood, and more than a third of them are male. Take Prince: He once asked London's O2 Arena to build a five-bedroom house for him on its grounds. And, obviously, his dressing room must come equipped with matching purple furnishings. More:

  • While filming Basic Instinct 2, Sharon Stone demanded a $3,500 weekly allowance for security, three nannies, and oh—she also wanted to keep all the clothes and jewelry she wore while filming.
  • Victoria Beckham wasn't called Posh Spice for nothing. She requires that her food be cut in a specific way, and her fruit and vegetables can't be mixed together.

  • For just a cameo in The Other Guys, Paris Hilton had three pages of demands, including ... live lobsters.
  • Kanye West will allow only the finest $400 Versace towels to touch his face while he's onstage.
  • And to think Jennifer Aniston seems so nice: On the set of her new movie, she reportedly refused to eat with the cast and crew.
  • Absolutely no carnations in Katy Perry's dressing room.
  • And in Nicki Minaj's dressing room, candles ... but only if they smell like baked goods.
Click for the complete list, including one singer who won't let makeup artists touch her face.
