Celebrity X no. 21

Celebrity X no. 21

Hi everybody! It’s finally time for a new Celebrity X article. This celebrity’s name is going to be a little harder to guess than those of Sarah Jessica Parker and Patrick Swayze from our previous posts. I don’t know about you but I think this face is so adorable (yeah, there’s a new girl writer on Celebrities than and now and things are gonna change..) I’m sure you were able to see past the soft girlish features and figure out that we’re dealing with a boy, i.e. a man by now. As singer of a world famous hard rock band this celebrity was the heartthrob of many a teenage girl in the late eighties and early nineties. I know that if you’re like me you’re probably wondering right about now how this sweet innocent boy could end up in a hard rock band. Not that there’s anything wrong with hard rock, but he just doesn’t seem the type, does he? His real name was William Bruce, but he changed it to a name he also later used on stage. He kept the last name though. He was born to a very religious family and had a troubled childhood. As a teenager he became quite the rebel, earning the reputation of a  local juvenile delinquent. He soon fled his small hometown of Lafayette, Indiana and moved to Los Angeles hoping to start a successful music career. The band in which he was the lead singer reached stardom in the late 80s mainly on account of the song he had written to his then girlfriend. During his career he was known for his great live performances as well notorious lateness, getting on stage up to two hours later than scheduled which often caused riots. He eventually split with his former band members (the most popular of which is Slash) and the band stopped performing for several years.  His career followed a slow downwards spiral ending up in the release of the long-awaited album Chinese Democracy in 2008, which was not as successful as anticipated. Oh, and his name is an anagram for “oral s*x”. Did you guess yet?

Before I give you some hints about our new Celebrity X issue, I must say that we are almost done with migrating of the site to new WordPress platform. That means that in a week or so, you will be witnesses of totally new and improved design of CelebritiesTAN.com, as well as faster loading of site although some extra features will be added, which will stay secret for now. All existing content and categories will stay unchanged, and you will always be able to reach content about your favorite celebrities again.

It means that you can look up every day what is new on CelebritiesTAN.com, and fresh posts about new celebrities will wait for you. That is all about technical info for now, but lets move on to next Celebrity X now.

Today we present you another top female Hollywood celebrity when she was young. Difference between her and our past actors and actresses is that she comes from England. This hint already tells you much, because she is one of top five most famous English actresses, and some sources even gave her a title of “the best English-speaking film actress of her generation”. Beside that, at the age of 22, she became the youngest actress to receive two Oscar nominations, and at the of age 33, she is now the youngest actor of either sex to receive six nominations. Along impressive award list goes huge list of successful roles, of course. Probably the most famous role in her career was that one in romantic disaster blockbuster from 1997, where she acted with another one great Hollywood celebrity, mentioned in our past issue of Celebrity X. That movie also became at the time the most expensive film ever made, costing approximately a stunning number of US$200 millions.

Celebrity X No. 13

Celebrity X No. 13

Like in the previous Celebrity X issue, today we are presenting you another popular American singer. To be more precise, this celebrity became famous pop and R&B singer and songwriter. She was born in Staten Island, New York, although when her parents divorced, mother took her and her younger sister to their grandmother’s home in Rochester, Pennsylvania, a suburb outside of Pittsburgh. For that reason she has spent the majority of her childhood in Pennsylvania. Celebrity from the picture aspired to be a singer from her very young age. At that time, she was known locally as “the little girl with the big voice”, singing in local talent shows and competitions. According to some sources, her brilliant talent provoked fear in all of her competitors. Whenever competitors heard that they would be up against her in any given competition week, they would immediately withdraw. She was so good that soon her peers became jealous of her and would frequently subject her to ridicule. Jealousy even escalated with acts of vandalism around her house including the slashing of the tires on the family car and similar acts. Eventually, the family relocated to Wexford, another suburb in the Pittsburgh area. At least, this time they tried to keep her talent in secrecy to avoid further inconveniences.

She first appeared on national television in 1990 as a contestant on the Star Search program, and went on to star in Disney Channel’s television series The New Mickey Mouse Club from 1993–1994. I hope that until now you have a clue about the possible name of this celebrity, so it is time to find out who are we talking about this time.
