Which Celebrities Are Living The American Dream?

With Jay-Z topping TIME’s 100 Most Influential People list and Beyoncé’s bossy reign over 2013, it’s easy to claim that The Carters are living the American Dream.

Long before his Samsung partnership and Magna Carter’s platinum status Jay was “living in the projects with roaches and rats.” Bey, on the other hand, had a middle-class upbringing. In her most recent GQ interview, the Mrs. Carter World Tour singer revealed, “Equality is a myth, and for some reason, everyone accepts the fact that women don’t make as much money as men do. I don’t understand that.”

Agreed. Bey set the blueprint for graceful success in a predominantly male-travelled path and shreds the excuse that being a female is somehow a hindrance to greatness. She is a prime example of how a women becomes a boss, while her hubby reminds us that it’s not where you come from but where you’re headed.

Obvi, these two individuals form one of the most powerful couples in history. Who are some of your favorite dynamic duos?
