Jenny from the block has changed a lot since she was young and lived in the Bronx. She has done everything from making hit singles to acting in movies to starting her own clothing line, accessories brand, and perfume line. She is also a permanent judge on American Idol and World of Dance.
The triple threat has shown that she can do whatever she wants to do. Her run in Las Vegas broke records, and her career just keeps getting better and better. J.Lo just made and starred in the movie “Marry Me,” sang at the Super Bowl in 2020, and will sing at Joe Biden’s inauguration in 2021.
Jennifer Lopez has been in a lot of relationships, and most recently, she got back together with an ex-boyfriend and married him. Her amazing body at 53 also motivates people all over the world, as does the fact that she can shine while being a mother to twins.

Scooter Braun and Usher found Justin on YouTube when he was 13 years old. Since then, Justin’s career has been crazy. Since then, the young superstar has had his share of ups and downs, from great music success (he was the youngest artist to have five no.1 US albums) to a tale bashing of bad, controversial press.
Even though Justin has sold more than 150 million records and is one of the best-selling musicians in the world, he was once called “the most hated person in the world.” His on-and-off relationship with Selena Gomez, erratic behaviour, and drug use led to depression, but in recent years, Justin has focused on his health, music, and arena tours.
His two most recent albums, Changes and Justice, and his quick marriage to supermodel Hailey Baldwin (who is now Mrs. Bieber) are his two biggest accomplishments in the past few years.

Does Kim Kardashian ever stop making news or breaking the internet? In fact, the celebrity world probably wouldn’t work or even exist if there weren’t always a controversial story about the Kardashians going around online.
Since Keeping Up With the Kardashians started, Kim’s popularity has been going up and up. She has shaken up the entertainment world by being involved in a well-known sex scandal, marrying Kanye West (and then divorcing him in 2020), and going through a horrible robbery. But these news stories have opened up many business opportunities for her.
Kim has made workout DVDs, a clothing line, a book, a mobile game, emojis, a perfume line, shapewear, and a KKW Beauty line. She also gives a lot of her time to charities and even helped Alice Johnson get out of jail. Since then, Kim has worked hard to become a good lawyer so she can help people like Alice.

Zendaya is one of the most popular stars of 2022 because of how talented and successful she is for only being 26 years old. Unlike some of the other people on this list, the young actress is loved all over the world because of her success in music and movies, not because of her private life, which is usually kept secret.
The star of Dune became famous as Rocky Blue on the Disney Channel sitcom Shake It Up. Later, she became a Hollywood star after starring in the HBO drama Euphoria and winning the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series at the age of 22.
Zendaya has also been in recent Spider-Man movies, The Greatest Showman, and the new hit movie Dune. In 2021, when it was made public that she was dating her Spider-Man co-star Tom Holland, her personal life became very public.

Nicki and her husband, Kenneth Petty, had their first child in 2020. In 2021, however, her father was killed in a hit-and-run accident.

Since she became famous, Lady Gaga has shocked us with her outlandish clothes, which have ranged from meat dresses to egg incubators. The star isn’t afraid to give the entertainment world a crazy moment every now and then, like when she covered herself in blood on stage or made fun of pop icon Madonna.
But Lady Gaga’s creativity and amazing singing skills are what have really caught our attention over the years. Gaga has won 13 Grammys, so it’s hard to deny how talented she is. This gift was also shown in the movie A Star Is Born, in which she starred with Bradley Cooper and House of Gucci.
The Joanne star has her own merchandise, a line of perfume, and just recently, a line of cosmetics called Haus Laboratories. In 2020, she put out an album called Chromatica, and in 2021, she sang the National Anthem at Joe Biden’s inauguration.

Kylie Jenner is well-known for being a member of the Kardashian family, changing her look all the time, and having a child at a young age. It’s no surprise that she’s one of the most famous people of our time. The reality TV star is killing it in the cosmetics business, and young women are always getting style ideas from her.
Kylie Jenner was named the World’s Youngest Self-Made Billionaire at the age of 21. Many people don’t like the term “self-made,” but it’s hard not to see why she’s become so wealthy in just a few years. But in 2020, Forbes said that Kylie had forged tax documents to make it look like she was a billionaire.
Kylie wanted to get away from the stigma of being part of the Kardashian family, so she put her money into her own Lip Kit and merchandise empire, which doesn’t look like it will fall any time soon. She has even added a skincare line, a line of bikinis, and a line for babies to her business.

Generation Z probably likes Tom Holland more than most other young actors, mostly because of his top role as Spider-Man in the MCU.
The young actor is also one of the most followed on Instagram, with over 60 million fans watching his every move.
In the summer of 2021, Tom was seen kissing Zendaya, who was also in Spider-Man. This made the news. The actor keeps his private life quiet other than that.

He also won the BAFTA Rising Star award at a very young age, making him the youngest star to do so.

Taylor Swift was named 2019’s highest-paid celebrity, and it’s easy to see why. Taylor is a legend in the music world. She has won over 300 awards, including 11 Grammys, so it’s safe to call her a legend.
But the Reputation singer doesn’t take her wealth for granted. She is a huge philanthropist and often gives back to her community. She gives a lot of money to causes that are important to her. For example, she gave $17,000 to help rebuild the library in her hometown and $15,500 to a fan whose mother had been in a coma for five years.
Even though she is successful and kind, the pop star has a reputation in the showbiz world for being a bit of a diva. Taylor has fought with Kanye West and Nicki Minaj, among others. She is also well-known for dating famous men and writing songs about them.
After putting out two No. 1 albums, Folklore and Evermore, Taylor was the talk of the town in 2020. Fearless (Taylor’s Version) and Red (Taylor’s Version) came out in 2021, and she kept her reign going.

There is always one Kardashian-Jenner woman who is popular on the Internet. After all, they are the very best of pop culture and social media, right? Kendall Jenner is the second youngest of the group. She doesn’t usually make headlines unless she’s walking the catwalk as the model of the moment.
In 2021, though, the young fashionista made headlines when the ad campaign for her tequila company, “818,” was criticised for taking Mexican culture and using it for its own purposes. The airbrushed photo from her SKIMS photoshoot also went viral after she was accused of photoshopping it.
Kendall is still the top model in the fashion world, even though there has been bad news about her. Kendall keeps her love life quiet, but she often talks about having anxiety and panic attacks.

Selena Gomez is another Disney star who has made it as a singer. She has three albums that have made the Billboard Hot 100 list.
Selena’s love life has been a big part of her success, just like it has been for the other people on this list. After having a relationship with Justin Bieber that was on and off, the two broke up for good in 2018. In recent years, the public has also learned about the superstar’s mental health. He is known to have gone to rehab after having a “emotional breakdown.”
Selena’s best friend Francia Raisa helped her get a kidney transplant in 2017. This saved Selena’s life. After Selena got better, she helped make the hit TV show 13 Reasons Why, voiced Mavis in Hotel Transylvania 3, and became a Puma brand ambassador. Selena got into the makeup business in 2020 when her brand, Rare Beauty, came out.

Is there ever a time when a Kardashian family member isn’t in the news? At some point, one of the sisters is always a controversial case. The oldest Kardashian, Kourtney, keeps a lower profile than her siblings. However, in 2020, she made headlines when she quit the family show Keeping Up with the Kardashians so she could spend more time with her family.
The reality TV star was also trending on Twitter for a while after a shocking physical fight with her sister Kim was shown on the show.
Even though 2020 will be a big year for Kourtney, she is already well-known for her brand Poosh and her on-and-off relationship with Scott Disick. Travis Barker, who was in the band Blink-182, became her boyfriend in 2021. They got married just over a year later.

She was the first woman to win six Grammys in one night. She was also the first black woman to headline Coachella (and what a show it was!). Her visual album, Lemonade, made her the first woman to have 12 songs on Billboard’s Hot 100.
Beyonce keeps her personal life and relationships private, but that hasn’t stopped the media from making up stories about her relationship with rapper Jay-Z (and how he’s cheated on her), how she manages to keep up with her three kids, and how she stays in shape with her workouts and strict diet.
