Where would we be without movie stars, Internet stars and pop stars who provide us with endless entertainment? They are known and admired around the world. They are the biggest earners, and everyone wants to live their celebrity lifestyle. But while they seem like enduring forces, they too are fallible. They are human. Despite leaving behind relics from films to albums, not everything can go on to become a classic. And so, eventually many of the biggest celebrities that we know today will fade entirely from consciousness, into the deep, dark abyss, just like the rest of us.
The truth is that so much of the people in pop culture today are easily replaced by the next big thing. Some of the people on this list may not even be remembered in as little as five or ten years time. Hollywood is a cruel, cruel world, isn’t it? With that in mind, here are 15 of the biggest celebrities that won’t be remembered for long.
15 Kanye West
13 One Direction
12 Internet Celebrities
11 Every Reality TV Star, Ever
10 Talentless Eye Candy Actresses
9 Miley Cyrus
8 The Friends Cast (including Jen Aniston)
7 Angelina Jolie
6 Adam Sandler
5 Ryan Reynolds
4 Taylor Swift
We apologize to all the Swifties of the world. She may be the biggest pop star in the world who rolled in the most dough in 2016, but will she survive into the future decades? We think not and here is why. First of all, part of her appeal is the fact that people can relate to her due to her songs about her relationships and the “haters,” etc. As she continues to get older, she may become less relatable and less popular. At the same time, Taylor Swift’s music only really appeals to a certain audience (mainly young women) whose tastes are going to evolve over time, too.
3 Ben Affleck
2 Donald Trump
1 The Kardashians
This one probably won’t come as a surprise. They may be one of the most talked about reality TV stars at the moment, but a large part of that is due to their reality TV show, which has to come to an inevitable end at some point since the show is currently in its 12th season. The Kardashians won’t be able to keep up the momentum for long, especially as their looks recede and their opportunities to pose nude shrivel alongside their relevancy. What will the legacy of the Kardashians be? It is probably an accurate assumption to say that no one will be rewatching episodes of Keeping Up With The Kardashians in 50 years time. Their reality TV show is something to be consumed in the here and now. Reality TV is too easily disposable, just like Kim Kardashian's hair extensions. People have said that Kim Kardashian is the modern day Marilyn Monroe, but that couldn’t be farther from the truth. For one, she has yet to star in more than 25 movies that went on to become classics. The Kardashians may be ever-present in our lives today, but it won’t always be that way…
