Duct-tape facials, parachute pants, children named “Zordon”, Jaden Smith. You have to be a certain kind of person to make it big in Hollywood.

When that happens, you’re on full display for the world to see. Stars from all over the world have some majorly quirky habits, but the ones you’ll see below are some of the strangest trends that caught on among top celebrities.

For the most part, you won’t see much about strange diets because that would take up your whole day. Instead, we’ll focus more on the completely absurdly ridiculously unnecessary celebrity trends that have sprouted up over the last couple of years.

Colonic Weight Loss Therapy

Also known as Colon Hydrotherapy, Sylvester Stallone and (who else?) Gwyneth Paltrow have been champions of this “tummy-slimming” method for years. The idea is it could help eliminate toxins, reduce bloating, and improve digestion.

But the problem is, medical doctors from across the country have all come out to say “definitively” that “colonics do not produce any real or lasting weight loss… As soon as you eat anything, you gain the weight back.” That quote is from Dr. Guigliotti, who also told us that there’s no scientific evidence that colonics can regulate anything, let alone help you lose weight.

In fact, colonics are more harmful to your body than helpful, removing VITAL healthy bacteria and micronutrients that are in your system to keep you healthy.

The problem is: I’ve seen Rocky IV and Sylvester Stallone definitely knows a thing or two about fitness. I mean… the guy had 14 abs and 9 biceps.

Waist Training

Led by the Kardashians… and Snookie… this totally unnecessary 15 th century trend is making a comeback.

Everything about this trend is wrong! We know it doesn’t lead to weight loss. We know it’s not healthy for your body. Why? Because the Corsets are actually squeezing your ribs, putting pressure on your internal organs that your ribs are supposed to protect!

Not only would it make it hard to breath and potentially damage your vital organs, experts say it doesn’t work. All this process does is push the fat to other places it’s not supposed to be (for a short amount of time) before it all goes back to where it was after you take the corset off.

So let’s have a quick recap:

Benefits: Pretty much none. You look like a Barbie doll for a day or two.
Risks: Organ damage, shortness of breath, looking like a Barbie doll for a day or two.

For long term weight loss, it’s probably best to look elsewhere.

Baby Food Diet

Everyone from Lady Gaga to Jennifer Aniston has tried this crazy diet trend. (I wasn’t going to mention that Gwyneth Paltrow did this, you should just assume she does all of these weird things.)

The reasoning behind this diet is that baby food contains all the vitamins your body needs, but offers you a low calorie, filling option that can keep you from over eating or binging on unhealthy meals. At the core of this idea is simply eating pureed vegetables and fruits, which is nothing new to the dieting and weight loss world.

But it begs the question: why not just eat pureed fruits and vegetables?

Why do celebrities have to do everything the eccentric way?

Get some of your favorite veggies, boil them, throw them in a blender with some fruit and puree. Then you can get all of those same vitamins and minerals, but also be a grown up.

Baby Names

Okay, so this one is a little obvious, but it doesn’t make the trend any less ridiculous. For some reason, celebrities feel the need to name their child something outlandish or unique. For the life of me, I can’t figure out the psychology behind this one. As a celebrity, you’re used to being in the spotlight, but do you have to immediately thrust your child into that same lifestyle by naming him or her “Apple” (‘Sup Gwyneth) or “Petal Blossom Rainbow” (No, I didn’t make this up – Jamie Oliver really named his daughter that).

It’s not just one or two celebrities, either. It seems like 70% of actors, singers, athletes, writers, and reality TV stars have their own “Baby Name Book” that the rest of us just don’t get to access.

Think you’ve heard them all… well how about these:
