Best Celebrity

Nowadays it seems like there are infinite ways to become a celebrity. While it seems like there are a million celebs and counting, only a select few of them significantly impact their fields in ways that cement their names in history. Actors, musicians, reality stars, drag queens and others grow their brand and popularity by showing off their exciting lives on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and more.
