  • Kylian Mbappe | Before They Were Famous | Biography of French Football GOAT

    5 GEN 2023 · Before almost single-handedly winning France the World Cup with a rare hat-trick in the Final match of the tournament, Kylian Mbappe was born on December 20th, 1998 in the city of Paris -- and as the athlete himself once suggested in a children’s book made about his life, from the very beginning, Kylian Mbappe was born into football. In a lot of ways, you could also say that Kylian was born in the right place at the right time. His local football club, AS Bondy, was where his Cameroon-born father, Wilfried, used to coach under-15s and would go on to train more than a dozen top professionals -- but it was his son that Wilfried always had the greatest designs for. Of course, it wasn’t just Kylian’s parents who wanted greatness for him – he wanted it for himself, and from a young age too. At just six years old he learned every line to France’s national anthem while explaining to his teachers at school that he was doing so in preparation for playing in the World Cup. At that same age, he’d also watch interviews of his many heroes, studying how a talent like Cristiano Ronaldo would handle the media and then pretend to hold his own press conferences by posing questions to himself in what would eventually become three languages – his native French, as well as English and Spanish -- the foreign languages he studied at a private Catholic school.

  • Drake's 5 Crazy Moments of 2022

    5 GEN 2023 · Aubrey Drake Graham, the everyman of hip-hop, is a man who can dominate an entire year musically without even releasing his own album, it's happened before. However, this was not one of those years, at least with being prolific because Drake did still dominate but he did so by releasing a ton of new music including two new albums, one of which was an experimental house album, the other a collaboration with great 21 Savage.However, all of the new music and collaborations did not come without controversy or spicy headlines for the media tabloids to run with. Drake is also just one of the most popular celebrities on the planet, people constantly come up off his name so it isn’t surprising to see the things people do just to gain clout off the Canadian rapper's name. Drake also does some pretty extravagant things like getting a necklace made out of 42 wedding rings or throwing confetti championship celebrations for his friend’s pick-up basketball league. As he said himself, Drake is a presence that is almost its own character in movies, and the man has had quite the year so here are the 5 craziest Drake moments of 2022.

  • Kanye West 5 Crazy Moments of 2022

    30 DIC 2022 · Genius, tyrannical, revolutionary, and dangerously egotistical, those are four descriptions that contrast in their own unique way, however, they are also 4 ways that one could describe the artist Ye, formerly known as Kanye West, and even then that's a very surface level way to put it. In the year 2022 Ye had probably one of the most unique years of his career from his creative endeavors to controversy and the wild statements he makes, now Ye really isn't a stranger to any of those things I mean you could make a list of the crazy things he's done every year but what this man has done in 2022 ladies and gentlemen is a different beast altogether. As I said Ye has always been controversial and polarising however this year we saw Ye shift from being someone who transcends, delivers nuance, and is divisive to someone who is just objectively wrong and some might even say harmful or dangerous. From disastrous album roll-outs to public disputes with his wife and Pete Davidson to embarking on a campaign of anti-Semitism that even made Alex Jones ayo bruh chill. Many dubs this as the year we lost Ye, obviously not in a literal sense the man is still here and well, but more in a cultural and social sense, Ye meant and did a lot for a lot of people so it was tough but many had to put their foot down and say they are done with Ye. So here are the 5 craziest things that Mr. West has done in the year 2022 right here on Before They Were Famous.

  • Macaulay Culkin | Where Are They Now? | The Comeback of Home Alone Legend

    27 DIC 2022 · After turning himself into the biggest childhood actor of all time with the holiday classic “Home Alone”, Macaulay Culkin would see his acting career dry-up by the time he turned 14. And yet -- he still somehow managed to wind up a perfectly happy 42-year-old with a fiancée and baby, living the type of life few childhood stars ever get the chance to experience. Before all of that, Macaulay Culkin was born on August 26th, 1980 in New York City to his father, Christopher Culkin, a former child actor turned lackluster Broadway star, and his mother Patricia Brentrup. The two were never married but still produced a brood of seven children, including five sons and two daughters – all of whom lived in a cramped New York City apartment where the kids shared a series of bunk beds jammed into one room. Unfortunately, Macaulay never had much control over his own career and wound up at the mercy of his father in particular, who often chose his son’s roles for him. After early roles in television series like ‘The Equalizer” and the hit comedy film “Uncle Buck”, Macaulay’s big break came when he was just eight-years-old on the set of John Hughes’ masterpiece, “Home Alone”.

  • Jonathan Taylor Thomas | Where Are They Now? | Home Improvement Star That Disappeared

    23 DIC 2022 · The actor, former child star and teen heartthrob that captivated a generation, Jonathan Taylor Thomas also known as JTT has had quite the career. Once a pop culture mainstay that you'd find a photo of on the inside of a teenage girl’s locker in the late 90s, now the man is something of an enigmatic presence that is able to go 8 years without anybody taking his photograph. But before his rise and fall from fame, JTT was born on September 8, 1981, in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. He grew up in a household with his parents, Stephen and Claudine, and his older brother, Joel. As you know JTT got his feet wet with acting from a very early age, having made appearances in various commercials, his first official gig came as a voice role for the titular character of Spot in the US version of 'The Adventures of Spot'. In 1990, he made his acting debut playing the role of Kevin Brady on the TV series 'The Bradys', which itself was a spin-off of the 1970s show 'The Brady Bunch'.

As the son of two Jewish Stanford Law professors, Barbara Fried and Joseph Bankman, Sam spent a large percentage of his childhood playing games like chess, bridge, “Magic the Gathering” and the video game series “League of Legends” when he wasn’t busy attending class at an elite prep-school known as Crystal Springs Uplands where he excelled academically in almost every subject.
