As Moss landed on the cover of fashion magazines and commercials, little did anyone know she was living true to the heroin chic trend!

8. Whitney Houston

“And I will always love you…” Another trendsetter on the list, Whitney Houston is the most awarded female artist of all time known for her killer vocals in hits like “I Wanna Dance with Somebody,” “I Will Always Love You” and “Greatest Love of All.” With over 200 million albums sold worldwide and seven consecutive Billboard Hot 100 hits, Houston is one of the highest selling musicians in history making her talent a true legacy.

On a downward spiral thanks in part to her relationship with ex-husband Bobby Brown (stay tuned for more later on the list!), by the new millennium, Houston had lost much of her sparkle as she appeared thin and strung out at many public events.

While Houston first claimed it was stress from work and her lifestyle, by 2002 she admitted that she had been using a number of drugs including cocaine. Continuing to deny ever using crack cocaine, Houston never managed to get clean. On February 11, 2012, she was found dead in a bathtub at the Beverly Hilton Hotel as a result of heart disease and cocaine use.

7. Pamela Anderson

With a beer t-shirt, JumboTron and a Canadian Football League game to thank for the launch of her modeling career, Pamela Anderson was only 23 years old when she first appeared in Playboy.

Spending over 22 years gracing the magazine’s covers and feature stories, Anderson went on to star in Baywatch only to make even bigger headlines after very public relationships with notorious bad boys like Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee, singer Kid Rock, and poker player Rick Salomon.

6. Britney Spears

“Hit me baby one more time!” One of the biggest celebrities and music icons on our list, Britney Spears joins the ranks of child stars after launching her career at just eight years old alongside Christina Aguilera, Justin Timberlake and Ryan Gosling on The Mickey Mouse Club.

It wasn’t long before the 18-year-old Spears released her smash album …Baby One More Time only to follow it up with hit albums like Oops! I Did It Again and Blackout.Perhaps one of the most public meltdowns on our list, the Princess of Pop’s music career came to a complete halt in 2007 after she entered a drug rehab clinic just weeks after her aunt died of cancer.

5. Edward Furlong
