True iconic superstars only come along once in a blue moon. Think about the singers, bands and celebrities that you have looked up to through the years. True megastars in this sense include Elvis Presley – the King of Rock and Roll, or even the Spice Girls, messengers of the “girl power” craze. Regardless of whether your favourite superstar was known for rock or 90’s cheese, they are all memorable in their own way. But who are the most iconic superstars of all time?
The Spice Girls
When Baby, Sporty, Ginger, Scary and Posh burst onto the scene with their song “Wannabe”, no one would have been able to predict that they would soon become the girls of the 90’s. The Spice Girls were to be tied completely to the “girl power” phenomenon, each bringing their own personality to the job. Girls all over the UK wanted to be one of the Spice Girls, which is why they still remain iconic to this day.
Elvis was a true musical icon of the 20th Century. If you conjure up a picture of the “King”, the chances are you will envisage a man in a flamboyant costume; after all, his outfits did progress in line with his fame. You can still see these costumes in old pictures of the Rock and Roll legend, as well as in a range of Elvis gifts. Elvis had a number of hits, including the memorable ‘Hound Dog’ and ‘Suspicious Minds’.
After his death in 2009 it was confirmed without doubt that Michael Jackson was one of the most successful recording artists and entertainers of all time. His album Thriller is the best selling album of all time, topping the charts at a whopping 110 million sales. The “King of Pop” is easily recognisable for his hits ‘Billie Jean’, ‘Beat It’, and his white-gloved left hand.
