Written by on August 2, 2021

1. Billie Eilish

There’s no listening to the radio in 2021 without hearing a song by this artist. Billie Eilish might just be one of the most popular and trending musicians of the year. At the mere age of just 19 years-old, the young starlet has achieved more than the most historic singers can brag about.

With hit singles like Bad Guy and All the Good Girls Go to Hell, Billie has already earned seven Grammy Awards, two American Music Awards, two Guinness World Records, three MTV Video Music Awards, and one Brit Award. In 2020, she was gifted the opportunity to release the soundtrack for the James Bond movie, No Time to Die.

Billie generally keeps her personal life private, however she has been open about having Tourette syndrome. She’s also a huge fan of Justin Bieber, but who isn’t?

Did You Know? Billie has been writing music since she was 11 years-old!

2. Justin Bieber

Justin has had a wild career since he was discovered on YouTube at the age of 13 by Scooter Braun and Usher. Since then, the young superstar has had his fair share of 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, controversial press.

Despite selling more than 150 million records and being dubbed one of the world’s best-selling music artists, Justin was at one stage, named “the most hated person in the world”. His on-and-off-again relationship with Selena Gomez, erratic behavior, and use of drugs led him to depression, but in recent years, Justin has focused on his well being, music and arena tours.

His biggest achievements as of late was his speedy marriage to supermodel, Hailey Baldwin (now Mrs Bieber) and the release of his recent albums, Changes and Justice.

3. Jennifer Lopez

Jenny from the block has come a long way since her days in the Bronx. She’s dabbled in everything from chart-topping singles to making it on the big screen, creating her own clothing line, accessories and perfume brand, to gaining a resident spot on the judging panel of American Idol and World of Dance.

The triple-threat has proven that she can achieve anything she sets her mind to. Her Vegas residency broke records and her career just keeps going from strength to strength. As of late, J.Lo produced and starred in the 2019 hit movie, Hustlers, performed at the 2020 Super Bowl, and sang at Joe Biden’s 2021 inauguration.

Jennifer Lopez’s relationship history is pretty long and most recently, she announced her separation from her fiancé, Alex Rodriguez, and later reunited with her ex, Ben Affleck. Her phenomenal body at the age of 52 also inspires many around the world, and her ability to shine whilst being a mother to twins also motivates her fans.

Did You Know? J.Lo is the only woman that’s been voted twice for FHM’s Sexiest Women of the World!

4. The Weeknd

The Weeknd has certainly made his mark in the music world. Along with having number-one singles including Can’t Feel My Face and Blinding Lights, the singer has also collaborated with some of the biggest names in music such as Drake and Ed Sheeran. But these aren’t the only successes The Weeknd has under his belt – the artist has won three Grammy Awards, five American Music Awards, nine Billboard Music Awards, and was nominated for an Oscar for his Fifty Shades of Grey soundtrack.

While his music is what makes him famous, The Weeknd’s love life has also been a hot topic as of late. The star has famously dated Selena Gomez and been in an on-and-off again relationship with Bella Hadid. In 2021, the world was shocked to learn that The Weeknd was potentially dating Angelina Jolie.

She may only be 25, but Dua Lipa has already reached mega stardom worldwide. The singer is famous for multiple chart-topping dance-pop songs including New Rules, One Kiss and Electricity.

Dua has even earned several prestigious titles and awards throughout her short career.

6. Ariana Grande

The girl with the killer vocals began her career at the young age of 15 by performing in Broadway musicals. From there, she went onto TV filming before releasing her debut album, Yours Truly. The album went to number one in the charts and Ari won an AMA award for ‘Best New Artist’.

Since then, she’s made the number one spot on Billboard’s Hot 100 for Thank U, Next, headlined Coachella Festival, and won her first Grammy for Best Pop Vocal Album for Sweetener. Ariana is also the most streamed female artist on Spotify and Apple Music, and the most followed woman on Instagram (as of 2019).

Despite the ups in her career, our favorite Positions diva has suffered a few blows in her personal life. Ari has admittedly suffered from anxiety following the bombing of her Manchester concert in 2017; after one of her former boyfriends, Mac Miller passed away; and going through a public break-up with her fiancé, Pete Davidson. In 2021, though, Ariana shocked the world after marrying her boyfriend Dalton Gomez.

Did You Know? Ariana’s hair isn’t naturally straight – she’s got curls for days!

7. Ed Sheeran

Ed Sheeran is known for his chart-topping hits and his breathtaking vocals. Yet, his success often goes unnoticed due to his humble and mellow appearance. The British star has bagged four Grammys, he has performed for the Queen of England, and pushed boundaries with his several albums including No.6 Collaboration Projects.

His tracks are the epitome of wedding playlists, while his rare public appearances have made him one of the most beloved and famous celebrities of 2021. Ed Sheeran’s love life is generally kept under wraps, but it was revealed that he married his childhood friend and former high school classmate, Cherry Seaborn in January 2019 and they had a baby together in 2020.

8. Britney Spears

Pop legend, Britney Spears has been in the limelight ever since her rise to stardom in the 1990s. From releasing pop bangers like Hit Me Baby One More Time to making headlines for her breakdowns, this superstar will always be the topic on everyone’s lips. Dubbed “the Princess of Pop”, Britney has had global success, selling over 100 million records worldwide and winning over 100 awards throughout her career.

The teen idol has topped the list for most searched celebrity seven times in 12 years, not just for her music (and short movie career – remember Crossroads?) but for her personal life, too.

She famously dated fellow popstar, Justin Timberlake and married Kevin Federline, but it was her breakdown which made her a tabloid target in the mid 2000s. After a messy divorce, Britney entered a drug rehabilitation facility in 2007, publicly shaved all of her hair off, and fought the paparazzi numerous times. In 2021, Britney was everyone’s concern as it was revealed through a documentary that she was put under a conservatorship of her father, leading to the #FreeBritney movement.

9. Kim Kardashian West

Is there ever a time when Kim Kardashian isn’t trending or breaking the internet? In fact, the celebrity world probably wouldn’t function or even exist without a controversial Kardashian story circulating online.

Since the launch of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Kim’s popularity has grown from strength to strength. She’s rocked the entertainment world by being involved in a notorious sex scandal, marrying Kanye West (and then divorcing him in 2020), and enduring a horrific robbery. These headlines however, have allowed her to take many business avenues.

Kim has created her own workout DVDs, clothesline, book, mobile game, emojis, KKW Beauty line, perfume and shapewear. She also donates a lot of time to charities and even helped release Alice Johnson from prison. Since then, Kim has been focusing on becoming a qualified lawyer to help others like Alice.

Net Worth: $1.4 Billion

10. Drake

Whether it’s his inspiring quotes, rumored hook-ups, or rap feuds, no matter what Drake does, he will always remain a beloved and popular celebrity in the entertainment world. He’s only in his early 30s but has already outsold rap legends, including Tupac, Jay-Z and Eminem.

The Canadian-born star has won four Grammys, 13 BET Awards and six Juno awards. His chart-topping albums including Views always have a longstanding reign, while his arena tours sell out in minutes. In 2021, Drake became the first artist to surpass 50 billion combined streams on Spotify and was named Artist of the Decade at the Billboard Music Awards.

But Drake doesn’t just cash in from music, the smart businessman also has a line of endorsement deals from Apple Music to Nike, as well as his own company called OVO which includes live entertainment, clothing, sound radio and a record label.

Net Worth: $180 Million

    Hi there this is kind of of off topic but I was wanting to
    know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding knowledge so I wanted to
    get advice from someone with experience. Any help would
    be enormously appreciated!

    I do accept as true with all the ideas you have introduced on your post.
    They’re very convincing and will certainly work.

    Still, the posts are very quick for newbies. Could you please lengthen them a little from next time?
    Thanks for the post.
