Will Smith’s Legendary Film Career
We all know about Will Smith. He was practically royalty in the 1990’s, making one of his biggest breakthroughs in The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air and going on to star in a number of highly successful films such as Independence Day, I, Robot and I Am Legend. Even today he is one of the film industry’s most beloved and highly paid actors, with nearly all of his movies raking in $100 million or more. Even his box office bombs do pretty well, all things considered! When it comes to urban news and celebrity gossip, the Smith family is frequently a topic of interest thanks to their artistic output and fun personalities.
Tyra Banks And The Growth Of Fashion
Got fashion? You likely know a thing or two about Tyra Banks. She was the first African American woman to be featured on the covers of GQ back in February of 1996, with future trailblazing in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue and the Victoria’s Secret lingerie catalog. She had a very successful run hosting America’s Next Top Model and has even starred in multiple films alongside Lindsay Lohan and Miley Cyrus. Tyra Banks today still models alongside running her own business, writing for television and hosting various shows. Speaking of which…
Oprah Winfrey And Her Rise To Stardom
Oprah Winfrey is a stunner. In fact, it might be easier to state what she can’t do! The Oprah Winfrey Show aired for an astonishing 25 seasons from 1986 to 2011, being placed on over 120 different channels and regularly reaching an audience of 10 million people — for perspective, that’s larger than the entire population of Switzerland! The show would proceed to gross $125 million by the time its fourth year wrapped up, giving Oprah Winfrey a cushy $30 million and keeping her firmly in the hearts of many an American as she pursued acting and producing.
Beyonce Knowles And The Power Of Pop
When in doubt? Turn the conversation toward Beyonce. This talented singer and dancer has an estimated net worth of $450 million and is one of the most popular female musicians in the world. Her recent album, Lemonade, was history in the making for being completely unadvertised and still becoming one of the best selling albums mere weeks after being released. Her husband’s net worth is $650 million, meaning this couple’s combined net worth is just over $1 billion. Jay Z also made his mark with his 11th No. 1 album, The Blueprint 3, beating out Elvis for the record of most number one albums by a solo artist.
