Born Amethyst Amelia Kelly, this singer
is best known as Iggy Azalea, her stage name. The last year saw her dominate music charts across the globe with solo tracks like Work and Impossible Is Nothing. But this young lady has proven that collaborations too can propel you to the top. Two of 2014’s biggest hits, Black Widow (with Rita Ora) and Fancy (featuring Charlie XCX), had her rapping in them. She was picked by Jennifer Lopez to collaborate on Acting Like That, to feature on her latest album AKA. Thus far, she has won two American Music Awards in the Rap/Hip-Hop categories, one MTV Video Music Award for her collaboration with Ariana Grande on Problem, apart from taking home the People’s Choice trophy at a few awards shows. On a glory path, she seems unstoppable and is likely to even take home at least one of the five Grammy awards she has been nominated for.
Sia Kate Isobelle Furler
Better known as Sia, she is David Guetta’s favourite singer to collaborate and there is no wonder why. After the hit song Titanium, the 39-year-old came up with Wild Ones, in collaboration with Flo Rida. In 2014, Sia produced Chandelier, and has been nominated for the Grammys this year too. Record of the Year, Song of the Year, Best Pop Solo Performance and Best Music Video are all her’s to lose. Last week, she released Elastic Heart. The video features Maddie Ziegler and Shia LaBeouf wearing nude outfits, propelling her to a different kind of fame!
After being on Home and Away in
his homeland, he trooped across the
seas to be the lead role in films such as Blue Lagoon: The Awakening and Oculus. Last year, he joined veterans Meryl Streep and Jeff Bridges in The Giver, played Prince Philip in Male ficent and JR in Son of A Gun. But the future stars seem brighter for the 25-year-old as he has been cast in Alex Proyas’s Gods of Egypt alongside Gerard Butler and fellow Aussie, Geoffrey Rush. Recently, he joined the prestigious cast of The Pirates of The Caribbean for Dead Men Tell No Tales. The star cast includes Johnny Depp, Geoffery Rush and Javier Bardem.
From the Gold Coast, this 24-year-old has been on a few TV shows including Neighbors and ABC drama Pan Am. But her role as Naomi, opposite Leonardo Di Caprio, in The Wolf of Wall Street really propelled her to fame. The actor will be seen in three films this year. Suite Française a romantic World War II drama where she plays an army wife, Focus, with Will Smith, playing a revengeful femme fatale. Z for Zachariah, Tarzan and DCs Suicide Squad also. Nominated for ‘Breakthrough Role’ in the Empire, BAFTA and ACCA awards, she clearly
has a bright future
She is rumoured to be pregnant, but Adelaide Clemens is celebrating (with water) her success in the newly released The World Made Straight. She played the lead as the young suffragette Valentine Wannop in Parade’s End, a mini-series for an HBO-BBC collaboration and appeared in the high-profile The Great Gatsby, but more than the big screen, as a religious housewife, this young miss is making waves in TV show Rectify. She will next be seen in the late 2015 release of indie film The Automatic Hate, where she plays Alexis, who has a taboo attraction to Davis, played by Joseph Cross.
