Pardon my subjective attitude in certain moments, but we could say that this article is written by one of her many, many fans.

How strange are the ways of God… This R&B pop queen, the greatest singer of all times, with astonishing vocal abilities has first started singing in the local church at the age of 11 in Newark. Now, 37 years after, her last album is called I Look To You. Again you’ll see, God  and her religion had an important role in her life. She was no stranger to gospel, her voice was had the strength of it underneath. She’d brought a special energy into any song and you could feel that by the shudder on your skin.

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?

As soon as possible, when we turn to dedicated server, we will introduce you new exciting categories, as well as standalone galleries of various celebrities for those who keep to that old one “picture is worth a thousand words”.

Today we prepared one of the most popular male singers from one of the Spanish speaking countries. I am not even going to tell you from which country this celebrity is from, because it would be too easy to guess who is today’s Celebrity X. When I say that this singer is from Spanish speaking area, I am sure that you instantly narrowed the choice to few persons. Once young kid, as you can see him on the picture, became famous as a member of one Latin boy band, and later started his solo career in 1991. In over three decades of his singing career, until these days, he has sold more than 55 million albums worldwide. Today he is considered to be a major star in the world of Latin Pop and is considered to have opened the doors for some of his fellow Latin American singers. I don`t want to make it too easy to guess who is our Celebrity X, so now is the time to answer that question, and then to check out if you were right here. And be sure to check the answer by double-clicking on the “+/- Show Answer” link inside the post.

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. Be sure to double-click the “+/- Show Answer” link below this text to reveal the answer!! Continue reading…

Celebrity X No. 8

Celebrity X No. 8

I am constantly trying to improve CelebritiesTAN to become your favorite site where you`ll return each day and find out exciting facts about your favorite celebrities. As you can see for yourself, lot of changes happened in last few weeks, like completely new look and feel of the site. I also added new features like Celebrity X quiz, in the menu on the right side, and new interesting categories are coming soon. I hope that you also share my curiosity about their childhood and their way to success. Given that I prefer some celebrities more than others, I would like to hear about your interests so I can write more about them.

I would appreciate your feedback, because the most important thing for me is to improve your experience as my visitors. Feel free to email me and post you requests. I promise to do my best to fulfill them.

Today I prepared Celebrity X issue which is really interesting, and I can bet that you`ll never find out who it is from just looking at the picture. The kid on the picture looks so hilarious that you could think that it’s some famous country star`s son, or something like that. But when you look at the answer, you`ll surprise how famous this celebrity is today. I’ll give you some clues: He was born on January 31, 1981 in Memphis, Tennessee. He became one of the most famous pop singers today, and he sold his first two solo albums in over 18 million copies worldwide. He came to fame as a lead singer in one of the most popular 90`s boy band. Few years ago he was the first victim of Ashton Kutcher’s Punk’d show, where he was duped into thinking his home was repossessed for back taxes. It was so funny that I watched Punk`d regularly since that scene which became one of most known scenes and a real classic of this great show.
