Before some of our favs were on television screens and rocking music videos, they were performing in clubs and racking in dollars. 

It’s no secret that several celebrities got their start from the naked hustle. Many have been open about this, including Nene Leakes, who spoke openly on “Real Housewives of Atlanta” about her dancer days while in college. Years later, Leakes became the highest-paid housewife in Bravo history, a far cry from her nights in the nightclub scene.


The world of stripping can serve as a gateway for artists looking to break into the music industry. It is often a hub for rappers, producers, and many other entertainers. Even rapper Trina, known for her timeless classics and continuous message of girl power, tried her hand at cabaret dancing shortly before her fame. However, Trina knew after a week it wasn’t for her and went on to explore real estate before getting her big break on Trick Daddy’s “Nann N***a.”


Although they started in strip clubs, these stars haven’t been defined by their beginnings.  Instead, they’ve soared to incredible heights. Here are a few more famous strippers turned celebrities who, with their go-getter mindsets, have risen to superstardom.
