This Irish singer got his start in Dublin, forming a band in the 1970s that would come to be one of the most successful groups of all times. Now a huge international activist, he and his band U2 are still ruling the Billboard charts.

And in the 1990s, this star tore up the Billboard charts with her hit song Nothing Compares 2 You. She also broke the heart of Red Hot Chili Peppers frontman Anthony Kiedis.  She resurfaced on our radar in 2011, grabbing headlines for her wild antics that included very personal and shocking blogs as well as a Las Vegas quickie wedding and resulting split-up, reconciliation and split-up AGAIN!
