The Top Ten

She even drank pee on a TV show. However, judging by the results, she actually never got into "prime" shape, even with the help of the urine.

2 During the rehearsals of his operas, Mozart enjoyed pretending to be a cat - he would often climb over chairs and meow when bored Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, baptised as Johannes Chrysostomus Wolfgangus Theophilus Mozart, was a prolific and influential composer of the Classical era, born in Salzburg.

I didn't know classical composers did weird things.

Ah well, whatever worked for him.

3 Beethoven was a literal Bean Counter because he insisted upon counting his coffee beans going into his daily cup.The magical number? - exactly 60 coffee beans. Ludwig van Beethoven was a German composer and pianist. A crucial figure in the transition between the Classical and Romantic eras in Western art music, he remains one of the most famous and influential of all composers. His best-known compositions include 9 symphonies, 5 piano concertos, 1 violin concerto,... read more
4 Louis Armstrong handed out laxatives to pretty much everyone Louis Armstrong, nicknamed Satchmo or Pops, was an American trumpeter, composer and singer who was one of the most influential figures in jazz.

Haha, "caring guy." Don't you believe it. He just wanted to see how many people would wait in line for the toilet at the same time and watch them sweat if they had to wait for more than 60 seconds!

He lost 100 pounds thanks to an herbal laxative. After his success with the product, he began distributing it to friends, family, and acquaintances. Seems he was a caring guy.

5 When Kurt Cobain was a little kid, he was certain he was actually an alien, and used to talk to his real parents in the skies every night.

In 1987, he started the grunge band Nirvana, which became one of the most successful bands ever. He was a talented yet troubled grunge performer. Kurt Cobain became a rock legend in the 1990s with his band. He committed suicide at his... read more

He used to think he was adopted by his mother, who found him after a spaceship left him from a different time or a different planet. "I knew there were thousands of other alien babies dropped off who were all over the place, and I'd met quite a few of them. It's just something I'd always like to toy with in my mind. It was really fun to pretend there's some special reason for me to be here." - Kurt Cobain

I thought I was an alien when I was a kid too.

6 Peter Frampton irons all of his clothes before each show.

Alice Cooper (in an interview with Dave Grohl) said that when he toured with him, he and some of the others would drop off their laundry to get ironed, and Peter would iron it for them!

Haha, who wouldn't want to marry him? Thanks, Gg2000, great addition!

7 Igor Stravinsky started his day with a headstand
8 Yngwie Malmsteen often has a Dunlop JH-F1 Hendrix Fuzz Face on the stage-floor, but doesn't use it. Yngwie says he likes seeing the Fuzz Face because it looks like a land mine Yngwie Johan Malmsteen is a Swedish guitarist, songwriter and bandleader who was born on June 30th, 1963, in Stockholm, Sweden. He was known for his neoclassical metal playing style back in the 1980s.

Perhaps the guy just loves land mines. What do I think about that? Well, as long as he plays like he usually does, I don't mind his land mine fetish or whatever it is.

9 Kodak Black still talks to the late XXXTentacion
10 Duke Ellington played only in clubs and was regularly refusing to play in the countryside because he hated grass and grassy fields that reminded him of graveyards. He didn't even wear the color green Edward Kennedy "Duke" Ellington was an American composer, pianist, and bandleader of a jazz orchestra, which he led from 1923 until his death in a career spanning over fifty years.
The Contenders
11 Freddie Mercury had at least 10 cats and enjoyed talking to them Freddie Mercury (born Farrokh Bulsara, 5th September 1946 - 24th November 1991) was a Zanzibari-born British singer of Indian descent, songwriter and record producer, known as the lead vocalist and songwriter of the British rock band Queen.

Also, the Queen song "Delilah" and his entire solo album "Mr. Bad Guy" are dedicated to his cats.

I saw his love for cats in the Bohemian Rhapsody movie.

12 Charlie Watts, drummer for the Rolling Stones, draws a sketch of each hotel room he stays in while on tour.

He keeps all of these sketches in a collection. He's never said the reason why he does it.

Thanks for this one, Gg2000. Awesome example!

13 Johnny Cash always performed in black John R. "Johnny" Cash (1932-2003) was an American singer-songwriter, guitarist, actor, and author, who was widely considered one of the most influential musicians of the 20th century and one of the best-selling music artists of all time, having sold more than 90 million records worldwide.

That explains his song Man in Black.

14 Freddie Mercury used to love pushing all the buttons at the same time in an elevator and would then panic like a 2 year old when the elevator stalled
15 Submarine Man ridiculously overuses Autotune and writes nearly all of his songs about feet, llamas, socks, dog poop and compactors
16 Corey Taylor cut himself in the studio while recording the Slipknot song "Iowa" to express the full pain experience
