4. Bobby Brown

Launching his music career as a lead singer with the R&B boy band New Edition in the early 1980s, Bobby Brown and the group rose to fame with hits like “Cool It Now” and “Candy Girl.” Fired from the band in 1986 for his rebellious behavior, Brown ended up getting the last laugh when he became the most famous member of the group after a successful solo career highlighted with hit songs like “My Prerogative.” Add in a highly publicized marriage to music legend Whitney Houston and Brown was riding high.

As a teenager, Brown started smoking marijuana but that did little to contribute to his changing appearance over the years. A far cry from the heartthrob he was in the 1980s, Brown’s drinking habits transitioned into crack cocaine and heroin use in the 1990s often smoking weed laced with cocaine with Houston. Divorcing Houston in 2007 after years of infidelity, domestic violence, and drug use, Brown has since claimed he’s stopped using drugs altogether and admits that he’s still a drinker. With multiple arrests for drinking under the influence, we can’t say we’re surprised.

3. Lindsay Lohan

The last child star on our list is 29-year-old Lindsay Lohan who was only 11 years old when she starred as the adorable and mischievous freckle-faced twins in Disney’s remake of The Parent Trap.

Growing up on camera, Lohan landed starring roles in family-friendly films like Freaky Friday and Herbie: Fully Loaded only to become a teen icon and household name thanks to her quintessential hit, Mean Girls, in 2004.Making her way into the music industry, Lohan’s popularity and sanity unraveled for the world to see in 2006 when she was admitted to a California hospital for supposed dehydration.

2. George Michael

“Wake me up before you go-go. Don’t leave me hanging on like a yo-yo.” As pop music looked for a new sound in the 1980s, George Michael and Wham! had just the answer when they pumped out post-disco dance hits like “Careless Whisper” and “Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go.”

Leaving the band in 1987 to pursue a solo career, Michael earned the reputation as a “blue-eyed soul singer” becoming one of the world’s best-selling music artists of all time with albums like Faith and Five Live.

1. Amy Winehouse

Ending our list with an artist who many people thought was the new voice of souls, London native Amy Winehouse had one of the unique voices in music over the past decade.

Praised for her blended style of soul, rhythm, blues, and jazz, Winehouse became the first British female to win five Grammy Awards thanks to hits like “Rehab,’ “Back to Black” and “You Know I’m No Good” – all before the age of 25.

Turning heads in 2005 for more than just her voice, Winehouse worried fans when she arrived at red carpet events and concerts looking much thinner and exhausted.

In 2006 when Winehouse’s grandmother passed away, things only worsened. A year later, Winehouse canceled a majority of her tour dates in the UK and Europe and was later admitted to a hospital after overdosing on a combination of heroin, cocaine and alcohol. Admitting issues with self-harm and depression, the 2007 wake-up call went unnoticed as Winehouse was found dead just four years later on July 23, 2011 from alcohol poisoning.
