The great thing about becoming rich and famous is that it could happen to anyone from anywhere. If you have talent, you will be discovered at some point. From South Florida all the way to Alaska and from the deserts of Arizona to the lighthouses in Maine, and even Hawaii, there are future celebrities just waiting to be discovered.
We know this because there are already celebrities from all of those places. That’s why we thought it was appropriate to share with you the richest and most famous celebrity from all 50 states.
Alabama – Lionel Richie
Hailing from Tuskegee, Alabama, Richie used hits like “Hello” and “All Night Long” to build a fortune in the neighborhood of $200 million. His 1983 album Can’t Slow Down did most of the damage, going platinum 10 times over. Just for good measure, Richie continues to rake in the big bucks by serving as a judge on American Idol.
Alaska – Holly Madison
Who knew that one of the most famous Playboy Playmates grew up in Alaska on Prince of Wales Island. To be fair, that is one of the southernmost Alaskan islands. Nevertheless, she came out of nowhere to be a playmate, star on multiple reality shows, and even publish a couple of books, putting her net worth around $16 million.
