15. Robin Thicke

Robin Thicke made it big in 2013 with his mega hit ‘Blurred Lines’ which featured superstars Pharrell Williams and T.I. But it is a little known fact that Robin has been pursuing a music career for the bulk of his life. He was actually signed to his first record contract at the age of 16 by Interscope Records.

His father was Alan Thicke, star of the hugely successful family sitcom ‘Growing Pains’ that ran for 7 seasons from 1985 to 1992. Alan has over 100 accredited acting performances to his name in IMDb, but what you probably didn’t know is that he was a very successful theme song composer as well. He composed the theme songs to ‘Diff’rent Strokes’ and ‘The Facts of Life’, as well as the original theme of ‘Wheel Of Fortune’.

At first, Alan didn’t support Robin’s career choice as he wanted him to finish school and graduate college first. But Robin left home at 17 to pursue his music career and once he started working with the likes of Christina Aguilera, Brandy, Brian McKnight, and a slew of other great singers, Alan eventually hopped on-board. In fact, he likes his son’s music so much that he admitted to US Weekly that him and his wife like to listen to Robin’s music while they are in the bedroom..
