February 2, 2018

How much do you really know about famous pop icons of the 90's? We've compiled a list of some our our favourite facts. Keep an eye out for part two coming soon...!

 

  • Pop Goddess Cher’s full name is Cherilyn Sarkisian LaPierre. The singing duo Sonny and Cher, which consisted of her and her ex-husband Sonny Bono, were originally known as Ceasar and Cleo. Finally, can you believe she was born in 1946 - I just hope I look that good when I’m 72! 

 

  • We all know Billy Ray Cyrus for that one-hit-wonder Achy Breaky Heart, but did you know he’s released 44 singles! Since the 1990s, his record of 17 weeks at the top of the US album chart is yet to be beaten! Of course, many of us already know this, but talent must run in the family, since his daughter is non other than wrecking-ball-riding, Hannah Montana star Miley Cyrus.

 

  • While Shania Twain can’t boast the longest run at number 1 in the Album charts, she can sleep easy knowing that her album Come on Over is the best-selling country album every. But it wasn’t always glitz and glamour for Twain. Prior to her massive success as a country singer she could be found working in her local McDonalds.

 

  • Born in Canada, Bryan Adams now lives right here in the UK. As well as his music career, Bryan has another hidden talent. He is a successful photographer, having work published in Vogue and Esquire and shooting for Guess, Montblanc, Converse and Fred Perry amongst others.
