Neil Patrick Harris: Known for being Doctor Doogie

Neil Patrick Harris

Neil Patrick Harris is an actor born June 15. 1973 in Albuquerque, New Mexico, U.S.A. Maybe Doctor Doogie isn’t what he is most famous for, but that is where I knew him first from, so he will always be Doctor Doogie for me. How I Met Your Mother is where most people know him from, a TV series that ran from 2005 to 2014, in these 9 years he played the role as Barney Stinson for 208 episodes. But his list of other appearances in series and movies is quite long, spanning from 1988 and running. He also played Count Olaf for 25 episodes in A Series of Unfortunate Events, that ran for 3 seasons. He is also to appear in the upcoming movie Matrix 4.

So far he has 26.8 million followers, 500K more and he passes Donald Trump’s 27.3 million “fans”

Ricky Martin: King of Latin pop

Ricky Martin

Ricky Martin is a Puerto Rican singer born December 24. 1971 in San Juan, Puerto Rico. But being born on Christmas eve is not what he is known for, but Latin pop. Referred to as the King of Latin pop, Ricky Martin has sold over 70.000.000 albums in his career, then add the crazy number of plays on various streaming platforms as well. I recon his referred title is much deserved. His worldwide success was followed by the 1999 release of the song “Livin’ la Vida Loca“, which also sparked the Latin pop explosion that sent other Spanish speaking artists up the charts, like Enrique Inglesias and Marc Anthony. Ricky Martin is also extremely popular on Twitter, where he is currently on the 99. place of the top 100 largest Twitter profiles. With his current 20.5 million followers, he is more popular than Playstation, which has around 17 million followers. For comparison’s sake, former president Barack Obama is at the top with a whopping 110 million followers
