1. Rihanna

Trending stories: Headlining the 2023 Super Bowl halftime show; recently having two children with A$AP Rocky.

We all know Rihanna, the singer who takes the world by storm with her untouchable music and booming business ventures.

The second best-selling female singer, who’s bagged multiple awards (nine Grammys!), is a true boss girl. Rihanna is the creative director of Fenty x Puma, the owner of Savage X Fenty lingerie, and has her very own Fenty Beauty line.

Her personal life and controversial moments are always a trending topic, but it’s Rihanna’s relationship with Chris Brown that fans just can’t shake off. Everyone remembers where they were in 2009 when news hit about Brown assaulting her. But despite this blip in her past, RiRi’s talents continue to shine through.

Trending stories: Becoming the most awarded artist (32 wins) in Grammys history (as of 2023); her Renaissance World Tour; releasing Cowboy Carter.

It’s an undisputed fact that Beyoncé is a superstar. She’s been a global icon for over two decades with unmatched success, constantly making the world stop with a new album, huge tour, or business venture.

‘Queen Bey,’ ‘Mother,’ and timeless icon, Beyoncé doesn’t just make music; she creates art with her groundbreaking ways of delivering entertainment. And for that, she became the first female to win six Grammys in one night, the first Black woman to headline Coachella (and what a performance that was!), and is the most successful Black touring act in history. 

Beyoncé’s relationships and personal life are kept low-key, but stories still spiral about her marriage to rapper, Jay-Z (and how he allegedly cheated), how she keeps up with her children (Blue Ivy is a rising star, y’all), and her extreme workouts and restricted diets.

Her fanbase loyalty (hey, Swifties!) and songwriting skills made her the most-streamed woman on Spotify and landed her 13 number one albums including Folklore and Evermore. In 2023, Taylor continued her reign by releasing 1989 (Taylor’s Version), the best-selling album of the year.

Despite her success, Taylor’s controversies have built her a reputation as quite the diva. She’s infamous for dating various well-known celebrities, writing songs about them, and feuding with other stars.

Miley Cyrus is a child actress-turned-pop-rock superstar. From starring on Disney’s Hannah Montana to becoming a top music artist, she is one of the most famous people in the world.

Unlike her clean childhood persona, Miley hasn’t shied away from shocking the masses with her love for twerking, exhibitionism, and erm, tongue-wagging (prepare to gasp, here’s that VMAs performance). But since putting her crazy antics behind her, Miley has showcased her true talent and powerful voice with hit-singles, including Flowers and successful albums like Plastic Hearts.

While music is still the reason why we love her, Miley’s dating history has also been the highlight of her fame, including her marriage and divorce from actor Liam Hemsworth.

The triple-threat is one of the few celebs to remind us that you can achieve anything you set your mind to. J.Lo has ventured in fashion, beauty and has also been a judge on American Idol and World of Dance. Even her Vegas residency broke records.

Jennifer Lopez’s relationships often land her in the spotlight, including her rekindled romance with her famous ex, Ben Affleck. Her phenomenal body at the age of 54 also inspires many (absolute goals!), and her ability to shine whilst being a mother to twins also motivates fans.

When will Kanye West ever not make headlines? Whether it’s his presidential run in 2020, bizarre rants, or failed relationship with Kim Kardashian, controversial Kanye always seems to be the talk of the town.

Kanye has been in the music business for over a decade and to honor just how important his presence has been, he was awarded with the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award in 2015.

While he’s had his fair share of public feuds, Kanye makes headlines for much more than his outbursts. The rapper-turned-mogul invested his creative ideas into his billion-dollar empire Yeezy, has been the highest-paid hip-hop artist, and Forbes once named him the wealthiest musician in the world.

From wearing leather outfits to shirtless velvet suits, Timmie is also dubbed a fashion icon. Vogue named him the most influential man in fashion, and GQ ranks him as the best-dressed man in the world.

Stalking Timothée’s personal life is a hopeless task, as he keeps it all private. However, he did once date Madonna’s daughter and Johnny Depp’s daughter; and in 2023, he began dating Kylie Jenner (we’re just as shocked as you are).

Net Worth: $300 Million

Instagram Followers: 292 Million

Trending stories: His relationship with Hailey Bieber; his imminent return to music.

We’ve all witnessed Justin Bieber’s wildly successful journey since he was discovered on YouTube at the age of 13. The young idol has had many ups and downs, from great music success (he was the youngest artist to achieve five no.1 US albums) to a tale bashing of bad press.

Despite selling more than 150 million records and being one of the world’s best-selling male artists, Justin has at one point been named “the most hated person in the world.” Bieber’s toxic relationship with Selena Gomez and controversial moments led him to depression, but he has recently focused on his well-being and music.

Now in everyone’s good books, Justin has gained more Beliebers as of late, thanks to his admirable marriage with supermodel, Hailey Baldwin (now Mrs. Bieber) and the release of his albums, Changes and Justice.

Whether it’s his inspiring quotes, rumored hook-ups, or rap feuds, no matter what Drake does, he remains a beloved and popular celebrity. He’s only in his mid-30s, but he’s already catching up to the highest-selling rap legends, including Tupac and Eminem. 

Drake is famous for his bad boy aura, but also his emotional vulnerable side as expressed through his relatable lyrics (he “gets lonely too,” y’all). Not to mention he has five Grammys and a record 34 Billboard Music Awards. No wonder Billboard calls him the “Artist of the Decade.”

But Drake doesn’t just cash in from music, the businessman also has a line of endorsement deals from Apple Music to Nike, and his own company, OVO. In 2022, Drake also became part owner of Italian football club A.C. Milan.

Did You Know? Drake has an obsession for the late singer, Aaliyah. As listed in our list of Drake facts, he has a tattoo of her on his back!

But in her own words, she’s “worked [too] hard and come too far to let anyone f*ck” with her success. Cardi is the only female rapper to have the most number-one singles on the Billboard Hot 100, and has the most-streamed female rap album on Spotify.

The One Where We Swoon Over Jennifer Aniston…There are only a handful of actresses who warm our hearts and aspire us like this icon.

Although Johnny’s film list isn’t as fruitful as it was back in the 80s and 90s, he still grabs headlines, whether it’s about his rocky relationship with Amber Heard, or making it into the Guinness World Records as the world’s highest-paid actor (2012).
