Celebrities often deal with significant pressure and time crunches. When they do find a down moment, some turn to eccentric, over-the-top food fixations for comfort. In some cases, a single food or snack is the focal point, but creative celebrities figure out ways to include their favorite foods in a variety of interesting combinations or recipes.

5 Justin Bieber

The specific requests music entertainers make for their dressing rooms are the subject of much fodder. Justin Bieiber insists that his dressing rooms are fully stocked with the gummy candy Swedish Fish. The Biebs can probably get away with the excessive sugar demands because of his youth and the energy he puts out in entertaining his fans at concerts.

4 Chrissy Teigen

Chrissy Teigen is one of the top swimsuit models in the world as of 2013. You wouldn’t think someone who makes a living in a swimsuit would get away with bacon as a favorite food, but Teigen does. Her obsession with bacon ties to her regular involvement in low-carb diets. The model is so passionate about her love affair with bacon that she provides bacon-centered recipes and discussion on her own blog. Fortunately, Teigen is a tireless fitness buff, which helps her maintain her physique.

3 Janet Jackson

While music star Janet Jackson’s favorite food—caramel apples—isn’t necessarily that eccentric on its own, what stands out is Jackson’s faithful commitment to the delicacy. A May 2012 “People” article noted that despite being a spokesperson for the NutriSystem weight loss system, Jackson stays true to her caramel apples, though it isn’t on the food plan.

2 Angelina Jolie

Angelina Jolie has always displayed an eccentric lifestyle, so it isn’t surprising that her food fixation stretches the definition of “food” quite a bit. The star of such films as “Tomb Raider” and “Wanted” indicated in a June 2011 “E! Online” article that grasshoppers are actually one of her family’s favorite snacks. She even likened the taste of the little green creatures to potato chips.

1 Selena Gomez

Actress and singer Selena Gomez is young enough that she doesn’t have to fret too much over counting calories. Nevertheless, the star, who appeared in the 2012 film “Spring Breakers,” has mentioned her pickle fixation on more than one late-night talk show. Pickle juice on popcorn and a delicacy of pickles and Reese’s are her favorites.
