12 Celebs Who Should Write An Autobiography

 solange

Controversial and private stars are the ones who are the most intriguing. With some, we're forced to fantasize about what their life is like while with others, a Google search could bring up their latest shenanigans. But no matter how many interviews or Instagram posts we ogle over, the only thing that could bring a fan closest to a celebrity is an autobiographical account.

Flip through to see who’s life would make for a good read at some point during their career.

From a young age, the good kid has seen a lot, from people getting killed in front of him during elementary school years to having friends die in his arms as a teenager. He hasn’t been involved in too much controversy—except the “Control” frenzy he caused, that is—but that doesn’t mean he hasn’t been involved in any in the small city of Compton. An autobiography could give more graphic and detailed accounts of the wrongdoings he was involved in while still dodging gang life and his family life (his family is filled with bloods and crips and most of his uncles are either dead or in jail, not to mention his comical father).

Drake

The actor turned rapper is sort of an enigma. Fans know a lot about Drake but they don’t at the same time. OVO's own usually pours his feelings into the music, but imagine if he put it all and then some into a book. An autobiographical account of Drake could be more candid and compelling among other things.

P. Diddy

No matter how many name changes there are, there's no denying that P. Diddy is a money making machine. He rose to prominence in front of our eyes, but a book could let readers in on his transition from the cocky intern at Uptown Records to the CEO and founder of the legendary Bad Boy Records who’s worth an estimated $700 million. Readers could also not only get to know Diddy as the business man, but as a family man and the lover as well (maybe).

Chris Brown

It’s no secret that Chris Brown's troubles have been just as noticeable as his talent. He's been through a lot in and out of the public eye. An autobiography could give a full scope of what events and hard times have led up to him becoming the polarizing star who can’t seem to escape his troubles.

August-AlsinaAugust Alsina

Some may be fed up with August Alsina’s attitude, but the 21-year-old crooner has an interesting back story. He suffered a lot of losses and hardships growing up in New Orleans that have made him into the no-nonsense man that he is today. As a teenager, he experienced homelessness, lost his brother to street violence, had his family ruined by drugs and then ended up selling those same drugs (crack cocaine) to get by. In a few years, his autobiographical account would be a best seller.

Rihanna

Fans would flock to Amazon and Barnes and Nobles if Bad Gal RiRi decided to pen an autobiography. The self-proclaimed good girl gone bad could talk about what it's been like to become one of the most admired pop stars in music and fashion.  Though she pours most of her life onto social media, fans would be intrigued to read about her most personal moments and about the hard times she has faced. She could also include how she overcame being a domestic violence victim and use her story for inspiration, which she rarely does.

After ElevatorGate, the people found out that Bey’s little sister Solange was about that life after she put hands (and feet!) on her brother-in-law Jay Z. Now that the people know that Solange plays no games, a book could give her a platform to tell her story and display more of her personality. People would most likely buy it to read what it was like for her growing up as Beyonce's sibling, but don’t be fooled. Solange’s story could make a worthy page turner (she was a teen mom and divorcee’ by the age of 19).

nas-gettyNas

Even though the Queensbridge MC plans to launch an autobiographical series on Xbox, it would still be great to read about his life on paper. Though Nas is known using his music as a canvas for his feelings, fans still wonder about his career and life in general. Like hearing what really led up to his beef from Jay Z from his point of view. Or did he see any red flags while he was dating Kelis but ignored them for the sake of their love?

The former Disney starlet took us all by surprise when she decided to revamp her image and embrace her raunchier side. She went from Hannah Montana to being compared to sex symbol Madonna in a matter of years. Since she’s so provocative now, an autobiographical tale could show that that may have always been there and talk about the road she has taken to be comfortable embracing it now.

The Barbs would go into a frenzy if their leader Nicki Minaj decided to let them in on her life in an autobiographical account. Before her rise to fame with YMCMB, she was in the south side of Jamaica, Queens dealing with a drug addicted father and watching her mother struggle to support her. Her story would be sure to bring her fans closer to her than they have ever felt.

BET 106 & Park Presents Keyshia Cole, Kirk Franklin & Lyfe Jennings

Keyshia Cole

Keyshia Cole gave her fans an up and close and personal view of her life when she allowed BET cameras into her life with her two reality shows The Way It Is and Keyshia & Daniel: Family First. From her rekindling her relationship with her mother to trying to find out her own paternity, the Oakland native took the audience on a roller coaster of emotions and an autobiography would probably have the same effect. Writing about her failed marriage to NBA player Daniel Gibson, her rocky relationship with her mother and sister and her experiences with the music industry would have readers glued to the pages.

The Basketball Wives reality star has been very entertaining to say the least since her emergence onto the show. If she was to translate her tell it like it is persona into a book about her upbringing and her life as a basketball wife who later had to receive food stamps, it would be sure to be a best seller.

Beyoncè Shells Out Ivy Park Goodies To Janelle Monae, Yara Shahidi, Kelly Rowland And More

We're less than 24 hours away from the full release of Beyoncè's Ivy Park collaboration with Adidas and fans are beyond ready, thanks to her brilliant orange box preview.

The entertainer and businesswoman gifted her family and celebrity pals with treasure trunks of goodies. From Solange to Yara Shahidi, celebs shared pieces from the collection on social media this week. Adidas announced its multi-year partnership with the mogul last April, making history in the process. The singer is the first black woman to be the sole owner of an athleisure brand. Bey took the steps to own the brand entirely after her initial collab with Topshop in 2016 by purchasing the shares of Phillip Green after sexual harassment claims were filed against him.

“It’s a dream come true to re-launch IVY PARK as the sole owner,” Beyonce said in a statement. It’s her first collaboration with adidas but not her first time building buzz for a product. The legend cleverly shared the mysterious orange boxes in all shapes in sized to her friends, thus creating quite the conversation on social media.

Ivy Park is also creating bigger conversations in the corporate world. According to a November research note by Bank of America Merrill Lynch, Ivy Park's sales can slowly surpass Kanye West's Yeezy line.

“In-line with adidas approach on other franchises, we would expect there to be a low volume, high priced launch ... to create brand heat and in the following years the brand will likely become more democratized,” the note says.“Initially, Ivy Park will be smaller than Yeezy, but Ivy Park has the potential to be larger, if managed properly,” says Matt Powell, a senior footwear analyst at NPD Group.

We love to see it.

Jennifer Lopez's Iconic Versace Dress To Be Transformed Into Swanky Watch

The iconic Versace dress worn by Jennifer Lopez that sparked the creation of Google Images is now a luxurious watch.

To mark the brand's Spring-Summer 2020 collection, the brand has decided to reprise the Medusa Frame jungle print by way of a sleek timepiece. In addition to the new collection, this also marks the 20th anniversary of Donatella Versace's legendary jungle print. Roman numbers are found in the dial along with an interchangeable black leather strap for additional styling. The piece will cause Versace and J.Lo fans a pretty penny at $1,495.00 when it hits retailers in May.

Since her jaw-dropping fashion moment, the actress-singer has rocked the print a few times. A jumpsuit version was worn in the visuals for "I Luv Ya Papi" back in 2014 with a revamped version of the gown making its way to Milan Fashion Week in 2019.

But the jungle print wristwatch isn't the only second coming of the print. The brand will also release shirts, heart-shaped necklaces, Squalo sneakers and beaded as a three-dimensional décor on Virtus handbags.

Originally worn to the Grammys in 2000, Lopez's take on the dress was both a music and fashion moment. Although the dress was worn by Spice Girls member Geri Halliwell, aka Ginger Spice, Donatella Versace and Sandra Bullock (in another color), Lopez's daring look cemented her spot in pop culture.

“I really didn’t think about it. I didn’t think it was all that risqué, to be honest,” Lopez told Vogue in 2019. “I was more excited it was the Grammys. I wasn’t even thinking about the dress all that much. I was just glad I had something to wear.”

Check out the watch below.

Azriel Clary Contemplates Working With Feds In R. Kelly Case After Fight With Joycelyn Savage

The case against R. Kelly has continued to grow new legs as Azriel Clary has contemplated working with authorities following her fight with former girlfriend Joycelyn Savage.

This week, the 22-year-old returned home after getting into a physical altercation with the 24-year-old at Kelly's residence at the Trump Towers in Chicago. The fight (or screams) were heard on Clary's Instagram Live Wednesday (Jan. 8). After returning home and pressing charges against Savage, Clary is now interested in working with the federal agents in the assault case against R. Kelly. Sources tell TMZ "she now wants to help law enforcement with its investigation into Kelly, but she has a huge hang-up—she's terrified because she's lied to federal agents several times in the past." Clary also signed an NDA during her relationship with Kelly.

During her fight with Savage on Instagram Live, the aspiring singer says multiple times the two engaged in sexual activity when she was a minor, an allegation she denied in their joint interview with Gayle King and with the feds. Elsewhere in her Live, she admitted Kelly convinced her and Savage to lie to King during their interview. He also prohibited them from watching the Lifetime documentary, Surviving R. Kelly. She reportedly saw the documentary after leaving Kelly's residence.

Despite the rumors, federal agents are not involved in the situation between Savage and Clary. Savage was formally charged with misdemeanor battery and made bond. She is expected to return to court in a few weeks. Savage was also briefly reunited with her family this week.

Clary's mother Alice Clary spoke with PEOPLE about the welfare of her daughter and urged the public to see her as a victim, not a willing participant in Kelly's alleged behavior. “Everybody has something to say, she was 17 when she left. Now she’s 22, but guess what? She’s had problems for the last few years,” she said. “She may have done things as far as being grown physically as a young woman, but mentally no. She still has the mental capacity of a 17-year-old because he kept her stagnated for years and didn’t let her be with her family.”

“The battle is won because she’s still here, she’s still alive, she’s still breathing and though she lost a few years of her life, she’s still here to tell her story,” she added. “Because I chose not to keep her secluded in her life, she’s here now and we’re able to say the victory is won because she finally came to her senses and she’s back home with her family.” Now that her daughter is home, Alice Clary is focused on helping her daughter move on from her ordeal with Kelly.

As the families continue to help their children, the public has weaved their own theories into why Clary decided to leave Kelly's grip. Bloggers like Tasha K, who have reported on Kelly's predatory behavior, reported Wednesday (Jan. 8) a possible reason for Clary and Savage's fight. Clary allegedly arrived at the condo with a man, a rule-breaker in the condo. When Savage approached her about breaking the rules, the two got into a scuffle as Kelly's helper named Kimberly watched.

Lifetime followed up their acclaimed documentary with Surviving R. Kelly Part II: The Reckoning earlier this month with follow up interviews with his victims and notably, Dominque Gardner who was rescued by her mother in the first doc.
