18. Mary J. Blige
You know you’re a diva when VH1 has aired not one, not two, but three “Behind the Music” specials on your life. The third installment of Blige’s storied career premiered in July 2011, followed quickly by the release of her 10th album, “My Life 2: The Journey Continues (Act 1).” When not endorsing products (Blige has cross-promoted with Apple, AT&T, American Express, Reebok, Chevrolet, Pepsi, Coca-Cola and many more), Blige has been prepping the sequel to “My Life 2,” tentatively slated for release later this year.—Jeff Royer
