Another day, another list of who’s hot for 2011. This time Rolling Stone magazine lists who they consider to be the breakout stars of 2011.
Daughter of Lisa Bonet (Denise from The Cosby Show) and rock star Lenny Kravitz, Zoë has had an interesting filmography – she played a teen prostitute in The Brave One with Jodie Foster, a victim of physical abuse in Yelling to the Sky with Gabourey Sidibe and a grief-counseling addict in The Greatest with Carey Mulligan. Watch out for her as fly-mutant Angel Salvadore in X-Men: First Class.
Brit winner Tinie (Patrick Chukwuemeka Okogwu Jr) is due to release a US version of his Number 1 album Disc-Overy in the US later this year. He performed ‘Pass Out’ with Snoop at Glastonbury last year and is set to become the first grime artst to make it big in the US. Bonne chance Tinie!
You’ve no doubt heard his hit ‘Black and Yellow’ – he says it took less than 10 seconds to come up with the hook! His debut single has sold more than 2.3 million and has been freestyled over by Lil Wayne. He’s not shy to show his affection for weed – he’s been quoted as saying he once spent over $10,000 in one month on the green! Now dating Kanye’s ex Amber Rose, his album Rolling Papers is out now and features Rick Ross and Snoop Dogg.
