The difference between existing as a regular person and carrying on a life of revered celebration and worldwide importance depends on one factor: fame. The bridge from ‘normal’ to famous can cause excessive greed or abundant gregariousness, and typically, those who resort to helping others instead of reveling in their fame take up other hobbies. Here are ten celebrities who adapted other activities to entertain themselves.

1. Shaquille O’Neal

My friend manages Shaquille O’Neal’s musical quest. Yes, that Shaquille O’Neal. Instead of turning from a musical career into a different art form, Shaq jumped from a basketball all-star to an electronic music DJ by the name of DJ DIESEL.

2. Jack Black

The other day, my friend spotted Jack Black in a Saw premiere, hanging out with his friends. The esteemed actor fancies hopping on artists’ tracks and voice acting. He recently voiced Bowser in the Mario movie, and he sang a cult-classic, somber song as Bowser entitled “Peaches, Peaches, Peaches.” Jack Black also continues performing in his comedy duo Tenacious D with fellow actor Kyle Gass.

3. Snoop Dogg

Snoop Dogg hosted a show with Martha Stewart, wrote a few books, and randomly showed up on stage at a Tenacious D concert. Snoop also coaches promising young athletes in football wrestles and acted on an episode of Trailer Park Boys. He is never bored.

4. T-Pain

Rapper T-Pain stepped away from focusing on music to dive into gaming and streaming his games. He streams his gaming from a custom setup with thousands of fans. Voice acts, he even penned a book featuring the best-mixed drinks.

5. Trent Reznor

The Nine Inch Nails’ frontman, Trent Reznor, exerts his musical prowess into scoring award-winning scores for fantastic films. He’s won an Academy Award for scoring the 2020 Pixar movie Soul, and he scored the recent iteration of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Atticus Ross and Trent Reznor teamed up to score the haunting 2019 drama Waves, which features one of the best film scores in modern cinematic history.

6. Maynard James Keenan

“A couple of wineries, a tasting room, couple of restaurants, a Puscifer storefront, Jiujitsu school, three bands, and he’s building a galleria out of an old Masonic temple that will have more retail spaces another tasting room and another restaurant,” a Tool fan beams about the metal band’s frontman.

7. Miley Cyrus

After carrying a sensational children’s television show on her back, Cyrus donated countless hours and dollars to help homeless LGBTQ+ youth and at-risk populations age out of foster care, exit the streets, and find their way in this harsh world. Cyrus also judged on popular shows like The Voice and hosted two New Year’s celebrations in Miami in 2022 and 2023.

8. Kelly Clarkson

Instead of abusing bragging rights as the first-ever winner of American Idol, Kelly Clarkson gives back to the community. The 41-year-old produces records, lends her voice acting talent to children’s programs like Trolls and UglyDolls, and hosts a beloved daytime television show.

9. Neil Young

“Neil Young has been on a side quest since 1972.

He said he did not like the expectations and confinement that having a huge hit brought, so he immediately steered for the ditch,” a respondent replies. Young directed Human Highway, Greendale, and some reflective films; he vocalizes his opinions about sustainability, and he’s crafted several novels.

10. Phoebe Bridgers

“She had a huge album and headline tour with the release of Punisher, and now she’s having the time of her life doing stadium shows supporting Taylor Swift, guest appearances with Billie Eilish, and, most side quest-y of all, currently touring with her supergroup Boygenius,” a Phoebe enthusiast writes.
