Adrienne Bailon
Actress, recording artist, TV personality, and style icon Adrienne Bailon has established herself as one of the hottest and most versatile talents in the industry. Born in the heart of NYC’s Lower East Side, Adrienne’s undeniable star power made her a household name by the time she was just 14 years old. Adrienne first stepped into the spotlight in 1999, when she rose to fame as the lead singer of multiplatinum R&B girl group, 3LW, who released it’s debut single, “No More (Baby I’ma Do Right)," in 2001. 3LW released a total of 3 studio albums, in addition to greatest hits album Neva Get Enuf. After touring the world with Destiny’s Child and *NSYNC, Bailon then went on to become a founding member of pop group The Cheetah Girls, known to the group’s millions of fans as “Chanel." The group’s 2003 Disney Channel movie, The Cheetah Girls, drew in 84 million viewers worldwide and instantly established the girls as superstars. Their 2006 tour was among the top 10 most successful tours of that year. After making multiple lucrative merchandising deals, the group went on to make two more Disney Channel movies, the most recent of which was the highly anticipated Cheetah Girls: One World, which premiered in August 2008. As an actress, Bailon’s credits include roles in several hits, including Disney Channel’s, That’s So Raven and Buffalo Dreams; the 2006 MTV feature, All You’ve Got; the feature film, Coach Carter, starring Samuel L. Jackson; and ABC Family movie, LOVESTRUCK, starring Jane Seymour. In 2013, Adrienne starred in “I’m in Love with a Church Girl,” which made a #1 debut at the box office among independent films, and co-starred Ja Rule and Stephen Baldwin. Adrienne is co-host of Fox TV’s daytime talk show, “The Real," which has made Adrienne—who is of mixed Puerto Rican and Ecuadorian descent—the first Latina daytime talk show host on English language television. Adrienne is also host of Oxygen network’s Nailed It, the networks reality show focused on nail-art competition. Adrienne also recently added ‘entrepreneur’ to her resume, by launching her new “Fingertip Fetish” nail polish line. Grateful for her success, Bailon has always focused on giving back and being a positive role model. She continues to be an advocate for girls, and an active volunteer for a number of major causes and charities, including the Girls Scouts of America, the Boys & Girls Clubs of America, Make-A-Wish, Arthur Ashe Kids’ Day and City of Hope.
