Who is La Toya Jackson and why is she famous?

[Mar. 29]

La Toya Jackson, sister of Michael Jackson and the first of the Jackson girls to have a solo music career, is most famous for her Playboy centerfold issue of April 1989, which became the magazine’s best selling issue to date with over 8 million copies sold. Her dance hit Free the World in 2005 was inspired by the 9/11 attacks on the twin towers in New York City and became a national icon for the green celebrity. As a contestant on Celebrity Apprentice, La Toya is playing for AIDS Project Los Angeles, one of the largest nonprofit AIDS service organizations in the United States.

Sister of Michael Jackson, the King of Pop, and Janet “Miss Nasty” Jackson, of Superbowl “wardrobe malfunction” infamy, La Toya Jackson has plenty of spark of her own. La Toya is no stranger to green celebrity status and charity. She performed on the single We Are the World, to help with the starving citizens of Ethiopia.

The green celebrity also starred in a lesser-known video for Stop the Madness, with an anti-drug message. She had a track, Just Say No, which she wrote for Ronald Reagan’s anti-drug campaign, in 1988, on her self-titled album. But it was around this time that she began to show a less conservative side, under the management of her husband, Jack Gordon, who La Toya says her father forced her to marry, according to IMDb.

Who is Jose Canseco and why is he famous?

[Mar. 27]

Retired Major League Baseball star Jose Canseco participated in the 7th annual World Poker Tour Invitational in 2009 to benefit the Vine Group which assists with educational materials for English-speaking nations in Africa, and in the Aces & Angels Celebrity Poker Tournament with green celebrity Kim Kardashian to benefit firefighters in southern California injured in the line of duty. He will be on Celebrity Apprentice to benefit the Baseball Assistance Team, which aims to assist former baseball players and others who have fallen on hard times and are associated with the game.

As the American League’s Rookie of the Year in 1986 and the first player to hit forty home runs and steal forty bases in a single season, José Canseco was one of the outstanding baseball players of his day. Canseco never played for a single team more than two and a half seasons, because of his controversial attitude — an attitude that is beginning to surface with Richard Hatch on Celebrity Apprentice 4. Canseco made himself well known when he outed much of major league baseball by by writing a book, Juiced, in which he claimed as many as 80 percent of all MLB players used steroids at some point in their careers.
