Before finding fame with his CD Get Lifted, singer John Legend, 26, was a management consultant. "I needed a job and it was a very prestigious entry-level job. I was making $50,000 a year." And, no, his last name isn't really Legend – it's Stephens. "I was working with Kanye (West), and this poet came into the studio and started calling me The Legend. It's just a stage name, but I do have a trademark pending."
