8. Kanye West
Narcissistic Personality Disorder
When Kanye claims that he'll be remembered as a character in "today's modern Bible," he's not just trying to become the most trending hashtag on Twitter. It's too early to tell for sure, but there are many who think that he probably suffers from Narcissistic Personality Disorder. Like MacArthur, he needs people to know that he's brilliant. That's why he compares himself to people like Jim Morrison, Picasso, and, uh, God.
Talent aside, his antics are a large part of why he's managed to stay in the public's eye for so long. We can't ignore him, because his neuroses won't let us. But we shouldn't, because well, he's a genius.
