In the world of women there are endless numbers of categories to choose from to highlight their beauty and talent. However, in what may have been a futile exercise, I tried to come up with one that, hopefully, no one else had thought of. After giving it a lot of thought I finally decided upon “The Top 10 Most Popular Women on the Web.”
Using Google search results as a barometer, I was able to compile a list of the top 10 most popular women on the web that probably not too many people would disagree, though they may have something to say about the order in which they appear.
10. Avril Lavigne
Lavigne is a Canadian born singer and song writer who took the music world by storm with her debut album Let Go in 2002. Born in Bellville, Ontario success came early to Aviril. By the time she was 15 years old she had already appeared on stage with established artists like Shania Twain. At 16 Arista Records signed her to a $2 million contract. Her debut album, “Let Go” made her the youngest female singer ever to reach no. 1 spot in the UK.
Shakira Isabel Mebarak Ripoll, Shakira is an all-around entertainer. Her early work was heavily influenced by her Arabic and Latin heritage. Her first two albums were net with less than favorable reviews; but she persevered and finally realized success with the released of her third album “Pies Descalzos” and the subsequent release of “Dond? Estan Los Ladrones.” And things would only get better for her when she came to the U.S. Her fifth album “Landry Service” would sell over 20 million copies in the states.
8. Paris Hilton
Born Paris Whitney Hilton in 1981, Paris Hilton is the great-granddaughter of the luxury hotel magnate Conrad Hilton, and an American actress and model. Known as a party girl, Hilton has become one the tabloids most sought after targets. Her first encounter with negative publicity came in 2003 when a sex tape with her and then boyfriend Rick Solomon was leaked to the media. However, all the negative publicity doesn’t seem to have dampened her popularity at all. Paris Hilton is still one of the most popular stars in pop culture.
7. Miley Cyrus
Miley Cyrus is an American actress who began her career at a very young age. Early on she stared in commercials but, it would be Miley’s portrayal of the character Hannah Montana that would launch her into stardom. The show was an instant hit, making Miley the target of autograph seekers everywhere she went. However, Miley would soon shed her adolescent cuteness and shock the entertainment world with her performance at the AMAs. Miley, accompanied by singer Robin Thicke, and using a prop shaped like a hand, would put on a raunchy performance called twerking that, though shocking, is still being talked about today, and placing her squarely in the list of the top 10 most popular women on the web.
6. Britney Spears
Born Britney Jean Spears in McComb Mississippi, Britney was a child star appearing in movies and commercials before moving on to a singing career as an adult. In 1999, Britney released her debut album, “Baby One More Time.” The album would go on to become an international success and make it the bestselling album by a teenage artist. Though her rise to the top has been meteoric, the road hasn’t always been smooth. Her repeated encounters with the police are well known. Nevertheless, Britney Spears remains one of the most sought after performers in the world.
Born Robyn Rihanna Fenty on the island of Barbados, Rihanna is one of the country’s most south after R&B singers. Rihanna’s career began when producer Evan Rogers took note of her and had her make a demo tape. The demo circulated among record producers until it fell into the hands of Def Jam records. After auditioning for the company’s president, Jay-Z, who happens to be married to Beyoncé, Rihanna’s first two albums soared to the top of the Bill Board top 200. Now, like Beyoncé, the name Rihanna is a household word.
Born Beyoncé Knowles September 4, 1981, Beyoncé rose to prominence as the lead singer for the youthful female R&B group “Destiny’s Child. Destiny’s Child soared to stardom on the back of their debut album “The Writing Is On The wall” which contained the sensational singles “Bills, Bills, Bills” and “Say My Name.” In January 2005, the group disbanded but Beyoncé would continue her meteoric rise to stardom—a rise that shows no signs of peaking anytime soon. Beyoncé definitely belongs in the list of the top 10 most popular women on the web.
The material girl holds down the no. 3 spot. At age 45, Madonna is still one of the most popular entertainers of all time. Not only is she an accomplish singer and entertainer, Madonna has also appeared in a string of movies, beginning when she was only a toddler. However, her biggest part may have come when she appeared in “Desperately Seeking Susan” alongside Rosanna Arquette. Madonna’s music career is expansive. She signed her first music contract in 1982. Since then she has sold over 300 million records worldwide.
Kesha is an American born singer, songwriter, and rap artist that is very popular among the youth and urban music sect. Kesha got her first break when she appeared on Flo Rida’s hit number one single “Right Round” in 2009. Then, in 2010, Kesha launched her own debut album “Animal” and watched it become the no. 1 album in the U.S. “Animal” also spawned two no. 1 singles, “Tik Tok,” and “We R Who We R.” As she climbed the ladder of success as a singer, Kesha continued to be a prolific songwriter, penning songs for other vocalists like Britney Spears’ “Till The World Ends”.
