  • LaToya Jackson
  • As one of the younger children in the world-renowned musical family, The Jacksons, the Grammy-nominated recording artist is no stranger to the inner workings of the music industry. It’s that knowledge and natural talent that led her to both national and international success with hits such as Just Wanna Dance reaching #13 on the US Billboard Hot Dance Chart and Heart Don’t Lie, which made #56 on the Billboard Hot 100 and garnered MTV airplay. Jackson appeared on CBS’s Armed and Famous and Celebrity Big Brother, UK edition.
  • Strength
  • Power player: Jackson has conducted business both stateside and on other continents. Jackson was paid a large sum of money in 1992 to join the Moulin Rouge in Paris. She did skip out on the entire year stated in her contract, but was able to raise the club’s profile and her own notoriety. Most recently, in 2010, Jackson launched a luxe moisturizer Dream Cream from German beauty company Alessandro International. The Swarovski-bedazzled 100ml jar costs about $226 a pop.
  • Weakness
  • Wearing her heart on her sleeve: Reports allude to the singer breaking the age-old rule of business when it comes to showing emotions. Insiders state NeNe Leakes made Jackson cry during an on-air dispute.
