We are all aware that celebrities shape pop culture. They frequently have large followings on their own social media pages, but they are also mentioned by other celebrities, fans, and publications, shaping conversations and culture. We looked at some of the biggest names in 2022 who generated the most social media buzz this year and where they peaked.
Adele is without a doubt one of the greatest vocalists of our time.
The singer has made her mark in music history with best-selling songs such as Rolling in the Deep and Hello.
Adele’s album, 21, was not only inducted into the Guinness Book of World Records, but it was also the longest-running number one album by a female solo artist in the history of the UK and US Album Charts.
Adele has received numerous honours for her music, including 15 Grammys and an Oscar for her James Bond soundtrack, Skyfall. She is now officially one of the best-selling musicians in the world. Adele made her epic comeback to music in 2021, but it was her dramatic weight-loss photo reveal that got everyone talking!
Justin has had a wild career since Scooter Braun and Usher discovered him on YouTube when he was 13 years old. Since then, the young superstar has had his fair share of ups and downs, from great music success (he was the youngest artist to achieve five number one albums in the United States) to a tale of bad, controversial press.
Despite selling over 150 million records and being dubbed one of the world’s best-selling music artists, Justin was dubbed “the most hated person in the world” at one point. His on-again, off-again relationship with Selena Gomez, erratic behaviour, and drug use led to depression, but in recent years, Justin has prioritised his health, music, and arena tours.
His most recent accomplishments include his quick marriage to supermodel Hailey Baldwin (now Mrs. Bieber) and the release of his recent albums, Changes and Justice.
Dua Lipa is only 26 years old, but she has already achieved global superstardom. The singer is best known for chart-topping dance-pop songs such as New Rules, One Kiss, and Electricity.
Throughout her brief career, Dua has received several prestigious titles and awards. The star’s debut album became one of Spotify’s most-streamed albums and has already won Grammys, Brit Awards, and MTV Europe Music Awards. Her song Don’t Start Now was recently named the most successful 2020 song by a female artist in the United States.
Dua’s personal life is rarely discussed, but she was famously dating Anwar Hadid, the younger brother of Gigi and Bella Hadid.
Ed Sheeran is well-known for his chart-topping singles and stunning vocals. The British singer-songwriter has four Grammys, has performed for the Queen of England, and has pushed the boundaries with his albums, including No.6 Collaboration Projects and Equals.
His songs are the epitome of wedding playlists, and his infrequent public appearances have made him one of 2022’s most beloved and famous celebrities.
Ed Sheeran’s love life is generally kept private, but it was revealed in 2019 that he married his childhood friend and former high school classmate, Cherry Seaborn, with whom he has two children.
