  • Lady Gaga: Named herself “lady” at 19; titled her very first album The Fame.

  • Tracy Morgan: Took aim at former Saturday Night Live castmates for 6-year-old slights in his recent book.
  • Victoria Gotti: Sports diamonds and fur in the midst of her foreclosure.
  • Diddy: Changed his name three times.
  • Keith Olbermann: Inspired an entire website named after his ego.
