Kanye West

Kanye West is, perhaps, the only person on the list who actually credited his addiction to sex as helping him gain success in life. The hip-hop megastar was quoted in a 2009 issue of Details as saying, “People ask me a lot about my drive… I think it comes from, like, having a sexual addiction at a really young age. Look at the drive that people have to get sex—to dress like this and get a haircut and be in the club in the freezing cold at 3am, the places they go to pick up a girl. If you can focus the energy into something valuable, put that into work ethic.” Whatever works, right?
