Famous Musicians From Los Angeles

Los Angeles may be a hotspot for superstar wannabes to travel to, but it’s also the birthplace of plenty of famous people to begin with. Here are just a few famous singers and songwriters from the Los Angeles area.

Paula Abdul

Before she was a cutesy, “I Love Everybody” co-host and judge of American Idol, Paula was stealing hearts as a sexy, talented singer. I used to play “Forever Your Girl”—pretty much every song on the album, really—over and over again, loving nearly every single song on the tape. My aunt introduced me to her, and even though her dancing around with that cartoon Cheetohs-like cat was sort of stupid (okay, really stupid), it was still a fantastic song.
