#7 Kelly Osbourne
The daughter of rock musician Ozzy Osbourne became a media star at an early age. The reality series "The Osbournes" made her famous all over the world.

#8 Gwen Stefani
Gwen Stefani has been famous since the early 2000s. Her career started as the lead singer of “No Doubt”, but today, most of us will know her for songs like “Hollaback Girl”. Today, she is a judge on the jury of the American “The Voice” and still belongs to the realm of mega stardom.
Back when she first got famous, she had more wrinkles than today and her lips have gotten plumper over the years. However, Stefani recently gave an interview which confused many viewers:
Gwen Stefani's Appearance On Late Night With Seth Myers
In the American Late Night show with Seth Meyers, Gwen Stefani gave an interview mainly about her jury role on “The Voice”. But is this Gwen Stefani at all? Her eyes seem much smaller and elongated than before, her nose is very narrow and her chin angular. Except for her expression and smile, her face and skin hardly move at all. We hope that Gwen Stefani feels comfortable in her skin and that she doesn't have more and more done to her because the pressure from the outside is too much. She was a natural beauty and if it had been up to us she wouldn't have had to have anything done at all.
