12 Celebrities Who Don't Get Enough Credit

In the world the world there are a lot of people, and many of them happen to be celebrities. The problem with that is because there are so many celebrities, there isn't enough attention to go around and many become unseen, and sometimes they may be seen, but are not given enough credit for their hard work. That is truly mind-bottling to me. These celebrities go through so much, working day and night with little breaks, and then on their off time are being chased around by camera flashes and screaming people. They deserve a lot of credit and attention for what they deal with on a daily basis, therefore I compiled a list of celebrities that are either unseen by the media or are certainly not given enough credit for their hard work.

Here are twelve celebrities that do not get the credit they deserve (in no particular order):

1. Adam Levine

We all know him from the bandMaroon 5 and the show The Voice, but we don't take into consideration that he also collaborates with many artists as a producer, songwriter, and as a solo artist. Levine is an actor on top of it all and spends most of his time on sets and in offices working hard on television shows, music videos and albums, and creating/designing his clothing line at K-Mart.

2. Sara Bareilles

Everyone knows Sara Bareilles' songs like "Brave", "Gravity", and "Love Song", but what many don't know is that she is currently on the Broadway show Waitress and is kicking butt with her song "She Used to be Mine".

3. Briana Evigan

Many know Briana from theStep Up movie franchise but what they don't know is she is a super actress and exercise queen. Evigan was actually very famous in the early 2000s, but her fame winded down a little as the years went on. It's time that changes. She is an actress, singer, dancer/choreographer, and YouTuber. She has been in a lot more than just the Step Up movies. She has also been in projects such as Mother's Day (2010), ToY(2015) and Love is all you need?(2016). On her YouTube channel, she posts monthly work-out videos for those who need help coming up with specific exercises.

4. Kat Graham

Kat Graham from The Vampire Diaries is becoming more and more known as the years go by. She is mostly known for her roles in 17 Again, The Parent Trap, and The Roommate. She has worked on too many projects to name, whether she was in front of the camera or behind. Many also don't know that she sings, and some of her more popular songs are "Put Your Graffiti On Me" and "Supa Dope".

5. Bethany Mota

Fashion and makeup icon Bethany Mota is most known for her glorious YouTube channel that has millions of subscribers. She can sing, do really fun crafts, create a great clothing line, and teach other girls how to do their hair and makeup to perfection.Bethany, however, does more than just create in the mainstream space of entertainment. She, alongside many other celebrities, works with UNICEF and the American Heart Association to give back not only to everyone in need, and spreads awareness on her platforms.

6. Matthew Morrison

Mr. Shuster fromGlee has not been given enough credit either. Though he is not really in the spotlight anymore, Matt actually still acts, sings, and dances on Finding Neverland, a current Broadway musical in NYC and is really popular in the Broadway scene. Keep a look out for him.

7. Emily Osment

Many remember Emily as "Lily" onHannah Montana or as "Gerti" in the Spy Kids movies. She made a name for herself in the movie Cyberbully. She is also a singer and has two albums out that feature pop and dance-pop songs. In 2015 she worked with Briana Evigan on "Love is all you need?" and played a reoccurring role on the CBS series Mom. She is currently on the show Young and Hungry and has truly gotten the attention she deserves through this job.

8. Michelle Phan

Beauty guru, makeup artist, blogger, and author Michelle Phan has been getting attention ever since she started her YouTube channel, but has failed to receive credit for all of her hard work that she does. Not only does she do professional makeup on clients, but she also cofounded "Ipsy" which is a makeup subscription service. Michelle has not only made a name for herself in the beauty community but paved the way for the other gurus in the community that may haven't been given the same opportunities as her.

9. Mark Ruffalo

Actor, producer and humanitarian Mark Ruffalo is a hero in the shadows. We all know Mark from movies like 13 Going on 30, Zodiac, Spotlight and Shutter Island, but what many don't know is that he has won many Academy Awards, SAG Awards, and BAFTA Awards for all of his hard work. He was the executive producer of the film The Normal Heart which was nominated for a Primetime Emmy Award. Mark is a major supporter of LGBTQ+ rights and is "pro-choice". His humanitarian work is focused around "The Solutions Project" that works towards getting nearly 100 percent renewable energy for the world.

10. Adam Sevani

Adam Sevani is an actor, dancer, and choreographer that is known for his smooth moves in the Step Up movie franchise. Though he has not worked on many public projects, he has done numerous dance videos and performances over the years. Sevani was a part of music videos from T-Pain, Will Smith, and Mase. He has performed at the KCA's and still continues to dance today.

11. Ann Shocket

Previous Seventeen Magazine Editor-in-Chief, Ann Shoket is an empowered author and champion of all things millennial. She just came out with a book entitled "The Big Life" which is all about all of the challenges that millennial women are facing in today's world. The book is out there to say that "millennial women are changing what it means to be powerful and successful in the world--for everyone."-Ann Shocket

12. Alyson Stoner

Alyson Stoner, actress, singer, dancer, and choreographer is a well known Disney Channel actress from the shows/movies Phineas and Ferb, Camp Rock, and Mike's Super Short Show. She acted and danced alongside Adam Sevani and Briana Evigan in the Step Up movies. She started working professionally at seven years old in many music videos from other celebrities such as Missy Elliot and Eminem. She currently teaches along with other teachers at Millennium Dance Complex in Los Angeles, CA, as well as films bathtub covers for her YouTube channel. Alyson has an EP out entitled "While You Were Sleeping" that is filled with urban pop tracks about her life. She as well as Mark Ruffalo is an activist amongst many groups and spends a lot of time in Ethiopia, Africa for the "I Pour Life" project.

These celebrities, as well as many others, often get thrown to the side and are left with no credit for their hard work. It's great to have many people out in the limelight to inspire us, but there are many that often deserve more credit than those who are consistently being watched. Keep an eye out for these celebrities because you might not want to miss what's coming up next for them.

20 Books About Latin And Hispanic Heritage Absolutely Everyone Should Have On Their Bookshelf

Any ally of the community needs to be reading these incredible reads.


I go through phases when it comes to what I like to read. I am typically reading two books at any given time: one serious nonfiction and one escapist fiction novel to have on hand and open up depending on my mood.

What remains consistent, however, amongst most of my fellow bibliophiles is a desire to try new and different authors and genres. I, as an Indian woman, have been partial to reading books written by fellow Indian and Desi writers since I first got a library card.

In our patriarchal society, men hide from their feelings, but toxic masculinity is literally killing men. They swallow the pain and move on so that they can look, feel, and act "tough."

But, strength is derived from asking for help and voicing your struggle and, trust me, working on your mental health is one hell of a struggle. The real way to "man up" is to acknowledge the downfalls in unjust societal norms. Mental health problems do not mean that a man is weak, they are neurologically-based disorders that require professional treatment.

I Asked 46 Women What They Thought About The Term 'Plus-Size', And Here's What They Had To Say

It's 2020, where change is inevitable and norms are not only questioned, but challenged.


We live in a world where it's become customary to push boundaries, break rules, and question standards upheld by society. Though try as we might, some of these standards are harder to conquer than others — body image is one of the top contenders.

For years, the body positivity movement has pushed for the acceptance of all marginalized body types not represented or celebrated in the media. Recently, we've gotten better at appreciating and accepting all body types, but one thing that's still lingering is the stigma of body image in the fashion industry — more specifically, the term "plus-size."

Sorry, But 'I Don’t Care About Politics' Is Not A Valid Excuse For NOT Voting

The younger generation of voters is so crucial to the upcoming election because our vote is going to shape the world that we are about to enter as adults.


When I ask my friends if they are voting this term most of them respond with "no" followed by an explanation of "I don't care enough," "It doesn't affect me," or "I don't keep up with politics," etc. I get it, as a college student I know that there are many other things to be concerned about like school, relationships, work, and friends. I also understand that keeping up with politics can seem like trying to keep up with an over-exaggerated reality show that has way too many seasons. Not to mention most news stations and websites are biased so it's hard to decipher if what you hear is true or fake.

However, despite all of this annoyance, as the next generation of Americans, we have to remember that we owe it to ourselves, our families, and to our futures to care.

Throughout quarantine, something that a lot of us picked up on was working out. With all the free time, it seemed like the perfect opportunity to work on that "dream bod" you've been wanting for years, or to just feel good about yourself.

A common way to stay motivated and keep yourself on-task is to follow fitness influencers on various platforms. For some people, yes, this can be a healthy and helpful way to keep your drive. In other cases, however, this can do more harm than good.

The Ultimate Guide To Being A Latinx And Hispanic Community Ally

Educate and celebrate their culture to lift the community up.


It's well known that the Gen-Z and millennial generations are more passionate about social justice and conscious about their decisions as consumers as any other generation to come before us.

For these generations, making mindful decisions about where we like to allocate our money, who we choose to follow on Instagram, and even the books we like to read are extremely important to us. With the rise of the digital age, we are constantly consuming media and content, and so there's no longer an excuse for being uneducated if we want to be educated on a wide range of cultures.

It was a day we all knew would possibly come but hoped it never would. The day the outbreak hit.

I remember, back in March, I was just about to return home from a socially distanced vacation in my Florida home with my mom and grandpa, when my dad called to tell us he was feeling sick. At the time, President Trump hadn't closed the borders, my school was still going back after Easter, and sheer panic hadn't yet flooded our news outlets. We were meant to return home on Saturday, but when the borders closed on Thursday, things got a little more serious.

These 10 Oversized Graphic Tees Are JUST As Cute As Urban Outfitters — And They're All Under $30

There is never a bad time to get some new oversized graphic tees, especially when they're all under $30.


While we all love Urban Outfitters' graphic tees, it can be hard to justify a $40 T-shirt, so I am always on the hunt to find cheaper alternatives that are just as stylish! Thrifting is always an option for authentic, vintage tees, but we don't always have the time to search through the endless aisles of Goodwill.

Lucky for you, there are still affordable alternatives that don't require quite as much effort.
