From Robin Thicke to Miley Cyrus: Who's the Hottest Second-Generation Superstar?
Robin Thicke may have spent his childhood watching dad Alan Thicke play a TV sitcom papa on "Growing Pains," but now, the singer is surpassing his lineage. Anyone heard of the song "Blurred Lines"? Exactly.
Miley Cyrus started shadowing her dad -- Billy Ray Cyrus of "Achy Breaky Heart" fame -- at a young age. Now, the 20-year-old star has a famous Disney show under her belt and is already establishing her music career.
Enrique Iglesias's dad, Julio Iglesias, is very popular in the Latin music industry, but it was his son Enrique who broke out as more of an international star, becoming a household name in America.
Everyone knows Norah Jones can kill it on the piano, but did you guys know that the singer's dad is one of the most famous Indian musicians of all time, Ravi Shankar? Talk about music in the blood.
He's party-rocking now, but Stefan Kendal Gordy -- who makes up half of LMFAO -- is the son of Motown co-founder Berry Gordy. There's definitely a generational shift here from classic to crazy!
Natalie Cole was already a musical success in the '70s but her biggest achievement came in the '90s, when she re-recorded tracks with her late father -- Nat "King" Cole -- to produce her album "Unforgettable."
With the rising popularity of celebs like Robin Thicke and Miley Cyrus, you've got to give a nod to their famous parents, who likely got their youngsters used to the limelight from the get-go. But now, it looks like some of these superstars are growing out their creators -- and becoming more famous in the process.
Robin Thicke, the sexy singer of the instant hit "Blurred Lines," has a pretty famous dad. Anyone remember the pops from "Growing Pains"? But though the singer grew up watching his biological dad play a TV sitcom papa on screen, Robin is now eclipsing Alan as a superstar. How about those blurred generation lines?
There's also Miley Cyrus, who started shadowing dad Billy Ray Cyrus (of "Achy Breaky Heart" fame) at a young age. At the age of 14, Miley had already landed her own Disney show, "Hannah Montana." Now, the former Disney star has chopped off her hair and immersed herself in the music biz.
And let's not forget about other second-generation superstars. Norah Jones, Enrique Iglesias and Natalie Cole are all great examples of stars who have surpassed their famous parents in the business. But who do you think is the hottest second-generation star of them all?
