Being a celeb is not an easy gig. You have to fight your way to the top, stand the hatred and remain on top as long as you can. But besides being famous, celebrities also launch all kinds of businesses. “Why do they do it if they are infinitely rich?” you might ask. Well, even though the rest of us dream about being a celebrity so we don’t have to work ever again, celebrities actually have to maintain some businesses aside so they can have a stable money income.
