Naya Rivera Makes Our Hottest List. But Who Else?By: Daryl Nelson - December 28, 2013
With Naya Rivera being in the news recently for the stunning diamond necklace she received from her rapper boyfriend Big Sean, some women have either felt envy, admiration or both for the 26-year actress. But besides Rivera, what other famous rapper and R&B girlfriends are out there, and more importantly, which one of these women have their own careers and high levels of success? Because as most know, Rivera was famous and accomplished way before she met Big Sean, and by the looks of it, she’ll have a pretty good 2014 in terms of gaining even more popularity and increasing her brand.
So to get an idea of other famous hip-hop or R&B girlfriends, we’ve comprised a short list of women to look out for in 2014.
Amber Rose: Ever since coming on to the national scene as Kanye West’s girlfriend a few years ago, there’s been no stopping this blonde bombshell when it comes to having her own popularity and fan base. And since having a baby with Pittsburgh rapper Wiz Khalifa, and looking wonderful to boot, the 30-year old Philadelphia native is bound to be on TV and in the press in next year, so be on the lookout.
Zoe Kravitz: For the past few months, the media has been buzzing about the beautiful Zoe Kravitz and her rumored new boyfriend Drake, and just like her mother–“Cosby Show” actress Lisa Bonet–it seems Zoe has joined another famous personality to make her star shine even brighter. But it’s not Drake that makes Zoe so terrific, it’s the versatility she possesses. Whether she’s acting in a blockbuster movie or fronting her band Elevator Fight, it seems there’s nothing this 25-year old can’t do if given the opportunity.
Iggy Azalea: Iggy Azalea is a little different from others on this list, simply because she’s arguably even more famous than her Los Angeles Lakers boyfriend Nick Young. And not only has this Australian native been very successful this year, 2014 is bound to be even better for her, namely because she’s received acceptance from the sometimes finicky hip-hop community, and increased her mainstream media presence. With good music, a pretty face and a loyal fan base, it seems the sky’s the limit for Ms. Azalea.
Chrissy Teigen: Being an accomplished supermodel with incredible looks, and having a successful career as a swimsuit designer, one could say that Chrissy Teigen has the world by the throat. And being the wife of R&B superstar John Legend doesn’t hurt her level of fame either. Teigen recently made waves in the press for posting a prank photo of Legend choking her, but she quickly took it down, however, that didn’t stop the media backlash. But despite the Instagram gaffe, Tiegen is setup to have a wonderful 2014, as her modeling career is still very much alive. And since appearing in Legend’s latest music video “All of Me,” there’s a good chance that she’ll appear on the small screen even more next year.
