As the first American Idol winner in 2002, Clarkson will forever be remembered as a groundbreaker. Her moment to shine turned into "A Moment Like This," and ever since, Clarkson was a fan favorite. With a voice so passionate and powerful, America knew Clarkson was headed for stardom. She was signed to RCA, and ever since, she has been churning out hit after hit.


Pop-Rockin' It Out

Clarkson initially gave off that girl-next-door vibe, but as a new-to-the-scene celeb, she soon wanted to shake things up. She changed her look from "squeaky clean" to something a bit edgier, and her songs reflected her sense of independence and integrity. Songs like "Since U Been Gone" and "My Life Would Suck Without You" became anthems for her fans, proving Clarkson could do no wrong when it came to her music. Soon came the Grammy awards and further accolades.

Gwyneth Paltrow

All you need to know.

Full Name: Gwyneth Kate Paltrow

Born: Los Angeles, CA

Occupation: Actress, singer, writer, business woman, lifestyle expert

She's an award-winning actress, the goddess of Goop, and a newlywed. From her on-screen success to her leap into lifestyle and luxury, Gwyneth Paltrow pushes her passion to its peak and gives her all to all she does. Once married to rocker Chris Martin for 13 years, their divorce in 2016 put Paltrow "on the market," and earlier this year she tied the knot again, blending families and building a future. Goop may not be everyone's go-to guide, but fans far and wide love a good Paltrow film. Here's more to know about the California native and what has kept her in the public eye for such a long time.

A Start in Showbiz

Paltrow comes from a Hollywood family. Her mom, Blythe Danner, is a long-time actress and her late dad, Bruce Paltrow, was a film director and producer. Perhaps her genes were already gifted with talent or she picked it up from her parents, but Paltrow set her sights towards the silver screen.

Movie Magic

Paltrow illuminates the screen with her elegance and ease, good looks, and top-notch talent. She has been on the A-list for decades and for good reason…she's a hit-maker. Blockbusters and high-earning films often have Paltrow's name listed on the credits, making her a go-to gal for casting. From Great Expectations to Seven to Iron Man to The Avengers, Paltrow's performances always aim to please and she delivers.

The Scoop on Goop

Acting isn't all Paltrow is interested in. Her lifestyle website, Goop, offers advice, sells goods, serves up recipes, and then some. It has been criticized for being too high-brow and high-priced, but Paltrow stands by her philosophies and favorite things.

Paltrow Perfection

Along with her other endeavors, Paltrow makes for the perfect photo. She has modeled for Estée Lauder and Coach, and when she's on the red carpet, her beauty turns heads. Here are some photos of Paltrow looking Hollywood hot.

From teen pop princess to Vegas show-stopper, Britney Spears has been on the radar ever since sexy schoolgirl outfits were her go-to get-up. From her highs to her lows to being back on the ball, Spears is a celeb in every sense of the word, full of fortune, misfortune, and everything in-between. She's a mom of two and an idol to millions, proving life as a popstar has many facets. Here's more about Spears that keeps us interested, intrigued, in awe…and sometimes in shock.

Mickey Mouse Club Cutie

Like Justin Timberlake and Christina Aguilera, Spears entered the entertainment biz on The Mickey Mouse Club. Singing, dancing, and showing off budding young talent made this show family-friendly, and Spears was a standout. For a small town Mississippi girl, being on television must have been a dream come true.

Pop Start

Spears came on the scene as a sweet-sexy songstress, belting out hit after hit with music videos that had us glued to MTV. Songs like "…Baby One More Time," "Oops…I Did it Again," "Crazy," "I'm a Slave 4U," "Piece of Me," and "Womanizer" were on constant radio play and Spears was climbing the charts. Her sound was unique, her presence powerful, and her appeal universal. She was on top of the world…until she wasn't…


A Breakdown

After filing for divorce from the father of her kids, Kevin Federline, it seemed like Spears was swiftly spiraling. From her embarrassing pics in the tabloids to her public displays of sheer chaos, Spears was in trouble and her loved ones saw to it that she got the help she so desperately needed. While we couldn't turn away from Spears' head shaving and car window bashing, the train wreck level of her meltdown was out of hand. Fans rooted for her recovery and her climb back to the top from rock bottom.

What Happens in Vegas…

www.rollingstone.com

Spears is back and better than ever. With a residency at the Park Theater at Park MGM, she calls Las Vegas her home base and fans flock to Sin City for a fun night out watching Spears' show. The glitz and glam of Vegas suits the singer to a tee, with her over-the-top performances and highly-choreographed shows. From the outfits to the outrageousness of it all, Vegas and Spears go hand-in-hand. Her Piece of Me show was so successful that a new one is set for 2019 called Domination. Earning a reported $507,000 per show, Spears will be set.
