When celebrities turn bad, often in the full glare of the media spotlight, it’s a little like watching a slow motion car crash – we know we should turn away, but somehow, we just can’t. Could celebrity bad behavior be rooted in the stars? Does a celebrity’s star sign play a part in their meltdown? Yes, to a certain extent. Sun signs are only one small part of astrology, and the full picture is much more complex than that, but here’s our guide to the type of tantrums we can expect from celebs.
When Scorpio celebrities turn bad, it’s usually to do with power or control. Scorpio as a sign absolutely needs to control others, and taking away that control can lead to extremely passionate outbursts and the unleashing of a temper which can rival even that of Aries. Top among badly behaved Scorpio celebrities must be chef Gordon Ramsay, who is now arguably more famous for his foul mouthed outbursts than for his food. Ramsay maintains that his no-nonsense attitude is necessary for the good running of a kitchen, and indeed his perfectionism is another Scorpio trait. It doesn’t take much for those Ramsay works with to feel the heat of his tongue, particularly if he asks them to do something and they fail – it’s the control factor again. He needs to be boss, and if he isn’t, because something isn’t working, that’s when the rage erupts. Ironically, when celebrity Scorpios don’t behave badly, they’re pilloried for that too – take Anne Hathaway, for instance – widely loathed for no apparent reason other than for being too perfect and, by and large, well behaved!
