How did she do?
Diving in like a true pro, the pint-sized celeb dished on everything from her most romantic moment, to the last time she got in trouble and her most awkward celebrity encounter. (Hint: it may or may not include one of the Kardashian sisters!)
The Jersey Shore “guidette” — recently named one of the most powerful celeb tycoons on our Hollywood Power Index – has just released her new spring collection of Snooki Couture nail polish. The spring collection is available now at all Perfumania stores and online at perfumania.com.
Why, exactly? Let us count the ways.
The star, who scored her first No. 1 single on Billboard‘s Hot 100 with “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together,” is the top-earning star under 30. According to Forbes magazine, Swift raked in a cool $57 million from May 2011 to May 2012 alone.
With endorsement deals galore — Target, Diet Coke, Keds, CoverGirl, Elizabeth Arden and more — the country pop singer-songwriter is a corporate mega-brand.
One of the best-selling musical artists of all time, Swift’s long list of accolades includes six Grammy Awards, 10 AMAs, seven CMAs, six ACMs and 13 BMI Awards.
From sold out concerts, soaring album sales, tons of endorsement opportunities and an astronomical fan following, Justin Bieber continues to dominate Hollywood — not to mention our Power Index, where he ranks No. 2.
The music powerhouse — who kicked off the UK leg of his Believe tour in Manchester, England this week — made $55 million between May 2011 to May 2012 alone, according to Forbes, making him the second-richest celebrity under 30.
And while he may have been snubbed at the Grammy’s this year,the teen pop prince is still sitting pretty.
Despite all the headlines Rihanna has made over the past year due to her alleged rekindled romance with Chris Brown, business is booming. The singer is so in-demand, in fact, she can rake in a cool $8 million for flipping a switch, which is why she ranks No. 3 on Celebuzz’s Hollywood Power Index.
In November, the songstress celebrated a historical music milestone by topping the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart for her hit song, “Diamonds” for the 12th time in her career. The impressive feat — aaccomplished in just six years — places RiRi ahead of Mariah Carey as the first female artist to reach 12 number-one hits in the fastest amount of time and ties her with Madonna and The Supremes for the fourth-most number-one singles in Billboard history.
That same month, the singer released her seventh studio album, Unapologetic, featuring collaborations with Eminem, Future and on-and-off flame Brown and posed for GQ‘s Men of the Year installment. In a barely-there lingerie shoot Kate Moss, the singer was featured front and center in the December 2012 issue.
Nothing keeps a celebrity front-and-center in the press like a good, old-fashioned scandal.
No one knows that better than Kristen Stewart, who is ranked No. 4 on Celebuzz’s Hollywood Power Index. The star had her fair share of press coverage in 2012: Her now famous affair with Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders while she was dating Twilight co-star Robert Pattinson may have cast the star in a temporarily negative light, but it made her more famous than ever.
After issuing a public apology to Pattinson, Stewart reminded herself to shake off the negative attention.
“I used to just stay in my hotel room rather than deal with everything,” she told U.K. newspaper The Sun. “But if you get too caught up in what others think, you become a really disjointed person.”
The media firestorm did little to deter fans from the most recent installment of the Twilight franchise. In October, the star embarked on a successful publicity tour for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 with Pattinson and co-star Taylor Lautner – making stops in the U.K., Spain, Germany, Australia, Japan and Brazil, to name a few.
As one of Hollywood’s most bankable stars, Stewart’s career hasn’t suffered at all. According to Forbes magazine, she is one of the most monetarily successful celebs, earning her bosses $40.60 for every dollar she was paid last year. So, how does the celeb spend her riches?
Just days ago, we crowned the outrageous songstress the Queen of Pop — and for good reason. Take a look at the facts:
Named the sixth best-selling digital artist in the United States, Perry pulls in approximately $45 million, thanks to her chart-topping tunes, mountains of promotional deals and movies.
Keeping her nose to the grindstone to get out her next album in summer 2013, the singer still finds time to spend her riches by jetsetting to colorful locales like Miami and Hawaii.
With sexy bouffant hair and an eye-popping light green gown, the pop princess was a showstopper at the Grammy Awards earlier this month. Presenting the Grammy for best new artist, Perry acknowledged the category’s influence on a performer’s career even though she’d been passed over for the honor herself.
Nearly five years after Twilight hit the big screen, Robert Pattinson remains one of the most sought-after men in Hollywood.
When news hit last summer that girlfriend Kristen Stewart cheated on him with her Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders, it did little to hurt his career. Not only did fans rally around the London-born actor, but the last installment of the Twilight franchise was one of the highest grossing films of the year.
“It’s a little bit overwhelming,” he told Celebuzz exclusively about the end of the film series. “It’s very strange and I still can’t get it in my head that I’m not doing another [movie].”
But life goes on for the actor. His next project will be The Rover, by Australia’s David Michôd, in which he will team up with Memento and Animal Kingdom star Guy Pearce.
Amassing a fashion powerhouse, the Olsens – - who rank No. 7 on Celebuzz’s Hollywood Power Index – have launched multiple lines like Olsenboye for JCPenney, Elizabeth and James, StyleMint and the high-end label The Row, which counts A-list fans like First Lady Michelle Obama.
At 26, the famous sisters have built a billion-dollar empire and found grown-up respectability in the world of high-fashion. In the past year alone, the duo has scored major accolades as designers, including a spot on Forbes’ list of the 30 most influential fashion moguls.
“Running a fashion company, it’s just as important to understand numbers as it is to have a design point of view,” Mary-Kate recently told Newsweek.
Capturing the world’s heart with her sophomore album “21,” Adele has quickly become one of music’s great female voices.
At 24, she has a collection of top-tier awards, rapidly climbs music charts and makes history with milestone sales - which is why Celebuzz ranks the British songstress in the Hollywood Power Index‘s top 10 most powerful celebrities under 30.
For Adele, 2012 brought lots of good fortune, both literally and figuratively. Ushering in the year with a new romance, the multiple award-winning singer confirmed her relationship with boyfriend and Life Water founder, Simon Konecki. Adele announced she was pregnant about six months later, on her website.
“I’m delighted to announce that Simon and I are expecting our first child together,” she wrote. “I wanted you to hear the news direct from me, obviously we’re over the moon and very excited but please respect our privacy at this precious time. Yours always, Adele xx.”
Despite all of the life changes the past year brought, the new mother continued to kick butt professionally, as well. Dominating over fierce competition like Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Bruno Mars and Katy Perry, the British songstress scored a total of six trophies at last year’s Grammy Awards. Her big wins included the prestigious trifecta of Record, Song and Album of the Year. The history-making accomplishment tied Adele with Beyonce as the the most wins by a woman in one evening.
