9. Jack Osbourne 

Jack Osbourne grew up in front of cameras after he was featured on the reality television series The Osbournes as a teenager. He struggled with the instant overnight fame and told MTV news about the bad press he was taking on board. He said, “I’d read things, like people criticising me. ‘You’re the least favorite Osbourne. Can we vote you out of the house?’ And I would be like, ‘F**k that,’ you know? But no one likes to read stuff about that, and I know you should probably never read s**t like that”.

8. Ozzy Osbourne 

Jack Osbourne’s father Ozzy Osbourne also had a tough time growing up as a teenager. He suffered from dyslexia, attention deficit disorder, and other learning disabilities. The Black Sabbath frontman was born in Birmingham, England and constantly found himself in trouble with the law for various burglaries. He attempted suicide several times throughout his youth, even when he was as young as 14-years-old.

7. Halle Berry 

Halle Berry is strong, confident and fiercely independent. This wasn’t always the case, though. When she divorced from her husband of five years, baseball player David Justice, in 1997, she tried to take her own life by trailing a pipe from her exhaust through her car window. It wasn’t until she thought of her own mother discovering her dead body that she changed her mind.

5. Elton John 

It does go without saying that Elton John is a great performer with 31 studio albums under his belt. Born in 1947, Elton had a tough start in life after he became confused and distracted by his own sexuality. In the late 1960s, he was engaged to a secretary named Linda Woodrow but the stress was too much for him and he attempted suicide by placing his head inside a gas stove. He was found by his long-term friend and songwriting partner, Bernie Taupin, who managed to revive him.

Since 1997, Marshall Bruce Mathers III has been known internationally as rapper Eminem. He has sold 37.5 million albums and claims one of the strongest fan followings in the world. That’s not to say that his life has been an easy one, as often the most aggressive and personal songs on his albums have been about his turbulent private life.

The saddest thought is a world without Katy Perry, but after her divorce from Russell Brand in 2012, she almost thought about leaving it all behind. In a heartbreaking interview with Billboard magazine in 2013, the Wide Awake singer said that she asked herself: “Do I want to endure? Should I continue living?”
