Brooke Burke biography: Raised in Tucson, Arizona, Brooke never envisioned herself in the entertainment industry. She says, “When I was young, I wanted to do something more low-key, like become a drummer in a rock band”. While accompanying a high school friend to a modeling agency in Scottsdale, Arizona, Brooke was discovered by a talent scout who happened to be there. She pursued modeling near her hometown and went on to win an acting scholarship.
Brooke moved to Los Angeles, where she studied broadcast journalism at UCLA. Between classes, during her first year at school, Burke signed with the industry`s highest profile agencies, including Ford, Wilhelmina, and Cunningham-Escott-Dipene. Soon, Brooke was gracing dozens of magazine covers, billboards, swimsuit editorials, catalogues and posters. Brooke has also starred in many popular advertisements and popular commercials.

As evidence of Burke`s emerging popularity and fan base, she gets the fourth most hits on E! Online, after Britney Spears, Fashion Emergency and Howard Stern. She was recently selected as one of three women in the world to be photographed for a 2002 At A Glance Calendar.
She is the “beautiful body” in the Bally`s Total Fitness commercials as well as Yankee`s shortstop Derek Jeter`s dream date for Discover Card. Her other credits include Coca-Cola, Anheuser-Busch, and M Professional Cosmetics. Brooke is kept busy and content with modeling, and did an interview with E! Entertainment on the insistence of a friend. With all this quality exposure, Brooke met the expectations of producers that were looking for a real person that could go to exotic locations, interact with the people, and be spontaneous. Before she knew it, she had signed a three year deal and was packing her suitcases.
Brooke`s career is a constant adventure, and says, “The sun is always shining somewhere in the world, and that`s where we go”. Brooke, who has already been to Spain, the Mayan Riviera, Belize and Aruba, says, “Some of my favorite activities have been shark diving, riding the rapids, crocodile feeding in the Black River in Jamaica, and skydiving.”
During the fifteen days a month she spends at home in Los Angeles, Brooke enjoys doing pilots and yoga, taking long walks, horseback riding, reading psychology books, cooking holiday meals and going to see movies and plays. She also regularly volunteers her time to work with such charitable organizations as Athletes & Entertainers for Kids and the Entertainment Industry Foundation.

Britney Jean Spears was born December 2, 1981 in Kentwood, LA to Jamie and Lynn. Britney has an older brother Brian ans a younger Sister Jamie Lynn. Britney began performing at an early age, and when she was 8, she auditioned for the Mickey Mouse Club. Although she was too young for the show, a producer saw her potential and helped her secure an agent in New York City where Britney spent the next three years studying dance and music at the renowned Off-Broadway Dance Center and Professional Performing Arts School. She also had small roles in commercials, theatre and films. She also began appearing in national commercials and Off-Broadway shows including the 1991 comedy, “Ruthless,” based on the 1956 thriller “The Bad Seed.” “At 10 I was playing this really bad child who seems real sweet but she`s evil too. It was so much fun,” she recalls. Britney`s big chance came when she tuned 11. Now she was old enough to earn a spot on the Mickey Mouse Club and starred on the popular show for two years, relocating with her family to Orlando. “It was fun for awhile but I started getting itchy to get out again and see the world” After her stint on TV, Britney returned home but she still had dreams of making it in the music industry. “I`ve always wanted to be a singer,” she declares. Armed with those desires and a powerful voice, Britney Spears nude went back to New York when she was 15 and began to make the rounds of record labels. She sang accapella for executives at Jive Records who saw and heard right away that in the teenager from Kentwood, LA, there were the makings of a star. Britney was signed soon after her audition and began work thereafter on what would become “Baby One More Time.” Britney Spears naked

The most noticeable aspect of the single, the video and the album is maturity, which is just what Britney had in mind. “People have to remember that when I did my first album I was only 16. I had never been in the studio, it was all new to me and so before I let people help me out and honestly I think that was because I was just so new to the music industry, not only because I was young. But making records and being part of the process and becoming more in charge of my sound was something I had to experience and grow with and on this album I

Two years after Blu Cantrell burst through the gate as one of the great new voices of contemporary urban R&B following the release of her scorching debut, 2001`s So Blu, the striking vocal powerhouse has returned with a hot new look and an even hotter new album, the aptly-titled Bittersweet. “My new album is another chapter of my life; I`m getting a little further from the pain and closer to real love,” says Cantrell, whose first disc was written and recorded in the wake of an unhealthy relationship that left the singer-songwriter devastated and suffering from a severe bout of depression. “That`s why I titled it Bittersweet,” she continues, “because I`m still bitter about some past relationships, but I`ve also experienced the sweetness of love.” Indeed, Bittersweet is one part tear-stained diary and one part survival guide for matters of the heart. “Singing about relationships is almost like therapy for me,” says Cantrell, 27. “It helps me stay focused and not allow outside influences to make me lose sight of what I`m trying to do.” And no matter whether Cantrell`s sharing a personal tale of heartbreak (“Sleep in the Middle”) or relishing the joy of love (“Happily Ever After”), she does it all with no-nonsense flair and poise. Take, for instance, Bittersweet`s lead single, “Breathe,” in which Cantrell affirms that rather than fanning the flames of a troublesome relationship it`s often best to simply evacuate and let time extinguish the pain. “That song is a snapshot of a recent relationship,” she confesses. “Sometimes you just have to step back and give each other space.” Produced by a top-notch ensemble of in-demand hitmakers, including Tricky Stewart, Shep Crawford, Mike City, Soulshock & Karlin, and Ivan Matias, Bittersweet`s infectious grooves, jams, ballads and club bangers not only support, but also enhance and illuminate both Cantrell`s voice and her lyrics. The album also features a handful of inspired star-studded cameos by Fat Joe, Sean Paul, Lil` Kim and Ian Lewis from the legendary reggae quintet Inner Circle-all of whom complement Cantrell with their respective signature sounds. Blessed with vocal chords that convey both power and passion, along with insightful songwriting skills and unparalleled enthusiasm for her craft, it`s no wonder why consumers and critics alike were captivated by Cantrell the instant they heard “Hit `Em Up Style (Ooops!),” her distinctive introductory hit single from 2001. Produced by Dallas Austin, the song`s intriguing mix of sassy lyrics and streetwise R&B flavor sprinkled with elements of swinging 1920s-style jazz, spent multiple weeks at No. 2 on Billboard`s Hot 100 singles chart. It also helped So Blu Cantrell nude pics become a Grammy and American Music Award nominated success that landed in the upper reaches of Billboard`s top albums chart. Most importantly, it distinguished Cantrell from the throngs of R&B coquettes cluttering the airwaves at the time. “I knew the first time I heard Blu sing that she was special,” says Antonio “LA” Reid President and CEO of Arista. “It`s incredible to see her growth from So Blu to Bittersweet,” he continues. “She`s definitely revealing more of her inner talent and artistry this time around.” In fact, she co-wrote four cuts on Bittersweet, including the Caribbean-tinged “Make Me Wanna Scream,” the straightforward directive “Let Her Go” and the euphoric “Holding On to Love.” There`s simply no denying that Bittersweet is a landmark in the creative journey that Cantrell embarked upon while coming of age in her native Providence, Rhode Island, where she and her five siblings would tag along with their mother, an amateur jazz singer, whenever she performed at local clubs. After growing up surrounded by music, Cantrell broke into the business by paying her dues as a backing singer for the likes of P. Diddy, Gerald Levert and Faith Evans. In 2000, she received the big break she`d been waiting for when she crossed paths with A&R executive Tab and producer Tricky Stewart of RedZone Entertainment in the lobby of an Atlanta hotel. Blu Cantrell naked pictures Under Stewart`s tutelage, Cantrell began recording a demo and within a couple of months, she was ready for the spotlight. “Tricky called L.A. [Reid] and told him that he had something for him to hear,” Cantrell recalls. “Three days later, L.A. flew to Atlanta from New York with his entire A&R staff to meet me. We all went into this tiny studio and he asked me to sing `Til` I`m Gone`-a song that I had recorded with Tricky-on the spot and acapella. Something just took over me: I had my foot up off the floor, like I was in church, and I just started singing and pointing at him. At the end of my performance, L.A. asked me to sign, and I`ve been with Arista ever since.” Bittersweet`s matured perspective is likely to strike a sensitive chord with listeners by reflecting the emotional ups and downs of romance that women can relate to and men can appreciate. It`s also certain to catapult Cantrell into an even more exciting phase of her already impressive career. “I tell the truth about love,” she says, explaining the secret to her success. “While I don`t sugar-coat things, I`m also known for my sense of humor. Blu Cantrell nude pictures. Through my music, I bring a sense of light to dark subjects, especially in relationships. This album could have been a bunch of dark, vindictive songs. Instead, I wanted to give you real emotions with a sense of fun. I hope the fans enjoy the aural experience as much as I enjoyed creating it.”

Beyonce first began her musical career when she was 7 years old and met LaTavia Roberson while auditioning for a children`s group. Beyonce`s cousin, Kelly Rowland, soon joined the girls, and the trio was finally joined by the fourth part of the group, LeToya Luckett. Managed by Music World Management`s Matthew Knowles — who is also Beyonce`s father and Kelly`s legal guardian — the four young girls with big dreams became Destiny`s Child. Worshipping the moves and voices of R&B legendary groups such as the Supremes and the Jackson 5,( Beyonce Knowles nude ) the children of Destiny`s Child started small by performing at local events and moved on to their national television debut with their performance on Star Search. Not only did their strong voices standout, but their originality and refreshing rap performance was only a preview of what the music industry was in store for. Soon enough, the group had moved up from the ranks of performing at small-time gigs, to becoming the opening act for popular R&B and hip hop acts Dru Hill, SWV and Immature. The group`s first album, the self-titled Destiny`s Child, was released in 1998, under the Columbia Records label. The album features Wyclef Jean, Pras and Jermaine Dupri as collaborating producers, as well as their hit single “No, No, No”, which went platinum. If the three awards that Destiny`s Child received at the 1998 Soul Train Lady of Soul Awards wasn`t enough of an indication of their upcoming success, their next album sure was. The Writing`s on the Wall, which was released in 1999, reached the top ten Billboard album charts upon its release. The album has so far spawned 4 hit singles, “Bills, Bills, Bills,” “Say My Name,” “Bug a Boo,” and “Jumpin`, Jumpin`.” With their album reaching triple platinum status by the end of the year, 2 Grammy nominations in 1999, an “Image Award” for (Beyonce Knowles naked) Outstanding Duo or Group by the NAACP, and contributions to the soundtracks for the films Why Do Fools Fall In Love?, Life, and Romeo Must Die, one would think that the Houston-based group would know no problems — but that would be wrong. In March of 2000, it was announced that group members LeToya Luckett and LaTavia Roberson had left the group. It was later revealed that the two members were unhappy with the management of Matthew Knowles, and that they left because of existing “creative differences.” LeToya and LaTavia took the group and its management to court, while the remaining members found two replacements, Michelle Williams and Farrah Franklin. Just when it seemed that Destiny`s Child had seen the last of their problems, Farrah Franklin left the group after 5 months, leaving Beyonce Knowles, Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams (not to be confused with the blonde Dawson`s Creek star) as a trio, basking in the glory of consecutive number one hits with the release of the group`s third album, Survivor

“The first time I got the script, it said The Amanda Show on it. “I thought they were kidding. I`m still little Amanda, and to be getting my own show, it`s like, oh, my gosh!” – at age 13 “It was my first season of All That. Kenan Thompson and I were playing ping-pong in this scene, and we were supposed to collide heads. As we were falling down, I hit myself in the lip with the paddle. I looked down and saw a puddle of blood, and I had to be rushed to the studio hospital with a swollen lip. My friend was like, `Don`t worry, Amanda. It doesn`t look too bad you know, thousands of women pay [for collagen injections] to have their lips that big.” “I`m the type of person who believes that everything happens for a reason, and at the time that it`s supposed to. So now … other ideas are coming up for other movies and everything is just happening really wonderfully.” “People don`t recognize I`m getting older. They see reruns of “All That” so they assume I`m ten years old. I`m 16. I`m almost 5` 8″. I`m driving now.” “I`m a positive person. People should find happiness in the little things, like family.” “I think my parents are a big part of that because I`m still a normal kid. Like there are times I get frustrated because I want to wear certain shoes and they don`t want me to wear them. It`s all good in the end because I realize that there will be a time and place for high shoes.” “I want to be looked at as an adult actress. That`s why I didn`t want to do a big movie when I was 11. I was waiting till I was a little bit older.”
