The former second lady of the United States is now first lady, with an agenda of her own that focuses on education, cancer research and support for military families. Biden also made history by keeping her outside paying job as a teacher — the first FLOTUS to do so. As she has said, “Education doesn't just make us smarter. It makes us whole.”

The rapper formerly known as Marky Mark overcame drug abuse, violent outbursts and legal woes to become one of Hollywood's most successful leading men, with memorable roles such as porn star Dirk Diggler in 1997's Boogie Nights. His new pandemic-set HBO Max reality show Wahl Street revels in his mogul status, with an empire that includes burger and gym chains, lines of clothing and high-performance water.

This husky-voiced Welsh belter came to prominence when her 1978 ballad “It's a Heartache” reached No. 3 on Billboard's U.S. Hot 100. In the ‘80s, Tyler earned more acclaim with the 1983 knockout No. 1 single “Total Eclipse of the Heart” and “Holding Out for a Hero” from the soundtrack for the 1984 film musical Footloose. She released a new album, The Best Is Yet to Come, in February, intending it to lift listeners’ spirits during the pandemic: “Music can lighten our load and is always my personal retreat,” she said in the album announcement.

He's frank about health challenges he's faced since his Parkinson's disease diagnosis at age 29 — though he tempers that sober reality with the appealing humor and gratitude that have brought him so many admirers through the years. He's been married to actress Tracy Pollan, who played his girlfriend on Family Ties, since 1988.

He told the British TV host Jonathan Ross that he plans to drop 60 new songs in honor of his birthday, adding, “As I've gotten older, I've started to like myself more and I've sort of become a gentler person and more compassionate.” His early birthday gift? An upcoming biopic focused on his life called Karma Chameleon.

When it was announced that Elon Musk, the mega-rich CEO of Tesla Inc. and the founder of SpaceX, would host NBC's Saturday Night Live on May 8, some cast members took to social media to voice their displeasure — Musk has expressed some dicey opinions about COVID-19, including questioning social distancing and vaccines. But he proved to be a good sport on the show, where he revealed he has Asperger's syndrome, and said, “To anyone who's been offended, I just want to say I reinvented electric cars and I'm sending people to Mars in a rocket ship. Did you think I was also going to be a chill, normal dude?”
