We are halfway through 2020 and so far this has been an exciting year for celebrities and pop culture. There are a lot of new breakout stars, and other well established celebs are making big moves. Here are some of the celebrities that are grabbing headlines this year, and should have some big things planned for the second half of 2020. 

Doja Cat

You can call musician Doja Cat many things, but the one thing you cannot call her is an overnight success. She first started releasing music way back in 2012 and since then she gradually made more connections and built up her fan base. While 2019 was her official breakout year, 2020 has proven to be her biggest year yet, and the singles just keep on coming.

This year has seen a string of hits being released by the young star. Her recent song Say So has almost 200 million views on Youtube. She has had several collaborations with mainstream musicians like Tyga, Nicki Minaj, Gucci Mane, and City Girls, among many others. There has been nonstop attention on this young star in 2020 and she is wisely keeping the cameras and journalists focused on her. 

Patrick Mahomes

In the NFL, Patrick Mahomes has quickly become the player to watch. In just three seasons, Mahomes has already won a Super Bowl championship and positioned himself as one of the best quarterbacks in the sport of football. After his explosive 2019 season that ended with the 2020 Super Bowl victory, everyone will have their eye on this young and successful player. 

As long as he remains healthy throughout this season, the Kansas City Chiefs are going to be the team to beat and will have strong odds in the NFL betting markets. Major league sports are notoriously fickle, and Mahomes will have monstrous expectations to fill in this upcoming season, but it appears the young quarterback is up to the challenge. 

Kylie Jenner 

Kylie Jenner has become a massive celebrity over the last few years, but 2020 is shaping up to be her biggest year yet. Anyone who knows her is familiar with her wildly successful makeup line, Kylie Cosmetics. In one of the most surprising and lucrative celebrity moves in recent memory, 2020 will be the year that Kylie sells a majority stake of the company for an astounding $600 million. 

While most people would cash out and retire at this point, Kylie is already working on her next business, proving that she is one of the most industrious young starlets in the world today. Her next business will be centered around baby fashion and other products like diapers, double strollers, and car seats. It’s amazing that this young mother manages to balance her home life and work life. Regardless of what is happening in popular culture, Kylie always finds a way to steal the headlines and stay relevant. 

Bad Bunny

There have been numerous Latin pop stars that have become popular globally over the years. Artists like Shakira and Enrique Iglesias have broken records in the past, but one artist in particular named Bad Bunny is already being called the biggest Latin pop star of all time. In fact, in April of this year, Bloomberg was calling him the “biggest pop star in the world.”

Things have been moving rapidly for this Puerto Rican musician. He recalls his life changing from washing dishes in a restaurant just a few short years ago to now playing at the Super Bowl alongside Jennifer Lopez and Shakira. His most recent album, YHLQMDLG, made history when it debuted at No.2 on the Billboard 200, and is already considered the highest charting all Spanish album of all time. 

These are big accomplishments for someone who was completely unknown in 2018. While 2019 was the first time people heard of Bad Bunny, 2020 is the year he breaks records and truly enters the mainstream. 


The 2018 film ‘Crazy Rich Asians’ was a surprise smash hit globally, and helped launch the career of struggling rapper and actress Awkwafina. Since then, she has kept up the momentum and is pushing to legitimize herself as a multi talented entertainer. 

In January of this year, Awkwafina made headlines in another surprising move when she took home a Golden Globe for best actress in a comedy film for her role in ‘The Farewell’. Not only that, but she has launched her own show on Comedy Central, ‘Nora From Queens’, which received rave reviews when it premiered earlier this year. In a year that is filled with huge celebrity news, Awkwafina is separating herself from the pack and carving her own path.
