There’s a sickening amount of celebrity children who received a defaulted status – some call it a legacy, others call it an unfair privilege, and yet other call it a burden. Here are some celebrity kids who are doing their best to get out of mom and dad’s shadow.
1. Willow and Jaden Smith
The kids of Jada and Will are flourishing in their own musical careers, and are known for their outlandish but trendsetting styles. They’re young, effervescent, and oh-so-open minded – with a few eccentricities, of course.
2. Zoe Kravitz
Lenny and Lisa Bonet sure made some flawless and talented kids. Zoe’s claim to fame isn’t from her parents, but due to her own acting and music career. Bonnie from Big Little Lies is one of our favorite characters on TV right now, without a doubt!
Remember when Lil’ Wayne would rap about his baby girl when she was just in diapers? Today, she’s blossoming into a beautiful young woman, as we can see on Insta, who has penned two fiction novels and has some musical and acting credit to her name as well.
4. Lourdes Leon
The daughter of Madonna doesn’t have money problems, but she does have ambition. Straying out of the entitled brat territory, Lourdes launched her own clothing brand Material Girl at the tender age of 14, and is model who regularly works for the likes of Gaultier and Miu Miu. She’s shy and sometimes on and off with Insta, but her mom always hypes her up on social medial
Johnny Depp’s daughter is an absolute stunner. There’s no doubt about that. She’s worked hard beyond her good looks and is signed with a popular modeling company. We respect that she maintains a sense of privacy in her life, even as the millennial influencer that she is.
6. Miley Cyrus
Billy Ray Cyrus’s daughter is more famous than her celebrity dad, and that’s saying something. This A-lister rose to fame with more star power than a lot of celeb kids, and she’s completely open about her life on social media. For now, she’s on good behavior and living life as Liam’s wife.
7. Sofia Richie
Many know Sofia as a household name because of her relationship with the much older Scott Disick, but we know this young starlet for her modeling jobs and 4 million IG followers. She’s gotten some big name modeling gigs with brands like Givenchy, and with her Brigitte Bardot pout, we’re not too surprised.
8. Quincy Brown
This cast member of the Fox show “Star” showed us that 1) Quincy is extremely fine, and 2) he is Diddy’s adoptive son by way of the late model Kim Porter. He has also starred in the movie Dope and been on the front page of prominent magazines, and that’s after his 4.4 million followers.
Christie Brinkley may have given her daughter a bizarre name straight out of an anime novel, but at least she has the devilish good looks to pull it off. She’s signed to IMG, which is a prestigious claim to fame in its own right, but is also a student at Parsons, studying photography.
10. Paris Jackson
With over 3.5 million followers on IG, Paris identifies as a “traveller, lightworker, treehugger, and activist. The only daughter of Michael Jackson is working on a music career and is in a band called the Soundflowers, and she’s known for her interesting stunts after her dad’s passing.
