It is fair to say that there are different types of people all over the world, who have different interests and different beliefs in their life. However, it is also fair to say that human nature is the same no matter what, which means there are always going to be similarities no matter how different you are.
That is exactly what brings us to the competitive nature of people, with some being so much more competitive than others, no matter what the topic. It could be a running competition, a dancing competition, a Bitcoin trading competition, a science competition; it really doesn't matter. If a person is competitive, then they are going to want to win at all costs.
Which brings us to the world of celebrities. Whether it be the modelling industry, the music industry, the acting industry, or any other area of the entertainment business, there are plenty of self-confessed competitive celebrities out there, and we are going to take a look at some of them.
First up we have the gorgeous supermodel Gigi Hadid, who is one of the top models in the world, but has admitted to having a very competitive side, "I’m really competitive – I’m an athlete and played volleyball all through high school – so working out is fun for me. My trainer will tell me the women’s records for different things at the gym, and I’ll have to beat one by the end of the day or I won’t leave."
Next we have the music superstar Katy Perry, who is one of the biggest selling artists on the planet, but is proud of her competitive nature, "Maybe I’m competitive. I just feel like I have this gift that I’ve been given. It’s like, 'Someone unwrap it! Here it is!' That drive can’t be held down. I have a lot of ambition."
Next up is the former Pussycat Dolls beauty Nicole Scherzinger, who claims to be competitive but in a nice way, "Competitive in the right way and not a destructive way, I hope. I’m most competitive with myself. I am [a perfectionist]. Not as much as I used to be, but I’m pretty hardcore, that’s for sure."
Finally we have actress and singer Selena Gomez, who never shies away from some good competition, especially with herself, "I’m competitive with myself more than anything. And anyway, all of my friends in the business are bigger than me! Most of them are musicians, and I think music takes them to a whole new level. For me, I’m going to try out music, but it will be more fun than anything else. I’m really trying my hardest to become a well-respected actress."
So there you have it, these celebrities love a bit of good hard competition, so maybe think twice before going up against them, no matter what the topic at hand.
