26 Celebrities Who Suffer From Mental Illness

We often imagine celebrities as leading perfect lives - when you're rich and famous, what problems could you possibly have?

But the truth is, stars can suffer as much as anyone. Mental illness, as they say, does not discriminate.

Many celebs have been open about their struggles with mental health, helping to end the stigma that once surrounded conditions such as depression, anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder and bipolar disorder.

1. Demi Lovato

Demi Lovato has been open about her struggle with bipolar disorder, cutting and bulimia. "I never found out until I went into treatment that I was bipolar," she told People when she was 18.

2. Leonardo DiCaprio

3. Lena Dunham

Lena Dunham suffers from obsessive-compulsive disorder, depression and anxiety, and even incorporated OCD into her character on Girls. She has taken medication for her conditions and told fans on Instagram that exercise helps immensely.

4. Robin Williams

Funnyman Robin Williams suffered from depression, paranoia and anxiety and tragically took his own life in 2014. However, his widow Susan said her husband's death was a result of Lewy Body Dementia, a form of neurodegenerative dementia that causes mood instability, hallucinations and impaired motor skills.

5. Justin Bieber

Justin Bieber admitted to taking Adderall for ADHD, but recently quit because it gave him anxiety. Early in 2016, he canceled meet-and-greets with fans, saying they left him feeling "drained and unhappy" and "mentally and emotionally exhausted to the point of depression."

6. Angelina Jolie

Janet Jackson: Yes, I’m 50… and Pregnant!

The rumor is a miraculous reality:

Janet Jackson really is pregnant!

At the age of 50!

Miss Janet Jackson

Talk of the legendary singer being pregnant first surfaced in early April, after the artist postponed her tour and told fans via video that a "sudden change" was to blame.

"I thought it was important that you be the first to know. My husband and I are planning our family. So I'm going to have to delay the tour," Jackson said in a statement on camera.

The wording got fans talking, of course.

Could Jackson and husband Wissam Al Mana be expecting their first child?

Despite Janet's advanced age?!?

"Please, if you can try and understand it's important that I do this now," Jackson added.

"I have to rest up, doctor's orders. I have not forgotten about you. I will continue the tour as soon as I possibly can." 

This seemed to absolutely solidify the pregnancy, but it wasn't until a month later when reliable outlets confirmed the news.

And it wasn't until today that Jackson herself confirmed the news.

“We thank God for our blessing,” Janet told People in an exclusive interview, which includes a photo of Jackson and her baby bump.

Janet Jackson on Stage

Over the last few months, the legendary sister of late icon Michael Jackson has kept a low profile, although she was recently spotted shopping for baby items at London’s Back in Action furniture store.

“She is super excited about her pregnancy and is doing extremely well,” an insider close to the Jackson family previously told People, adding:

“She actually feels very good about everything.”

Jackson turned 50 on May 16.

There are a number of complications that can often arise with such a late-in-life pregnancy, but we assume and hope Jackson is taking every necessary precaution.

The child will be the first for Jackson and her third husband, Qatari businessman Wissam Al Mana. He is 41 years old.

The two have been married since 2012.

Back in 2009, Jackson confessed in a discussion with Harper's Bazaar that she would like to be a mother someday.

And it didn't need to be by biological means, either.

“Sure, I’d adopt," she said. "And I think that if I’m really supposed to have kids, it will happen, if that’s God’s plan for me."

So, won't you look at that? It appears as if it really was God's plan.

We're so very excited for Jackson and we send her our very best wishes for a healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby boy or girl.

Janet Jackson cannot wait to be a mom.

“She is super excited about her pregnancy and is doing extremely well,” a source close to the Jackson family tells PEOPLE. “She actually feels very good about everything.”

Jackson, 50, has kept a low profile since news of her pregnancy broke in May.

In June, her brother Tito Jackson confirmed she was expecting her first child with husband Wissam Al Mana, 41.

“She’s doing very well,” he told PEOPLE. “She’s taking it easy. [She’s] hoping for a healthy baby.”

News of her pregnancy came after the star released a video in April apologizing to fans for canceling her Unbroken tour, while also alluding to her baby on the way.

“We’re in the second leg of the tour, and there actually has been a sudden change,” Jackson said in the clip. “I thought it was important that you be the first to know. My husband and I are planning our family. So I’m going to have to delay the tour.”

Jackson and the Qatari businessman were married in 2012 in a private ceremony.

Bump, there it is!

Janet Jackson gave a glimpse of her growing baby belly while leaving a furniture store in London on Tuesday afternoon.

The mom-to-be — who wore sweatpants, a black sweater and a scarf — arrived to Back in Action in a black Mercedes, according to Entertainment Tonight.

While in the store, Jackson reportedly spent time with the staff looking over their merchandise and even checked out a stroller for her baby on the way.

The expectant mom and singer, 50, has kept a low profile since news that she was expecting her first child with husband Wissam Al Mana, 41, broke in May.

Jackson’s brother Tito confirmed her pregnancy in June, telling PEOPLE, “She’s doing very well. She’s taking it easy. [She’s] hoping for a healthy baby.”

Is Janet Jackson Pregnant? Singer Expecting First Child, Multiple Reports Claim

Is Janet Jackson about to learn the real meaning of “No Sleep?”

Multiple outlets claim the singer, who turns 50 on May 16, is pregnant with her first child. Entertainment Tonight was first to report the news, while a source told E! News that Jackson is reportedly in her second trimester of pregnancy after successfully working with a fertility specialist.

Jackson previously sparked speculation she is expecting when she postponed her Unbreakable World Tour so she and her husband, Qatari businessman Wissam Al Mana, 41, could focus on “planning our family,” she said in a video posted to Twitter in early April.

“We’re in the second leg of the tour, and there actually has been a sudden change,” Jackson said in the clip.

“I thought it was important that you be the first to know. My husband and I are planning our family. So I’m going to have to delay the tour.”

Jackson, whose new single “Dammn Baby” was released earlier this week, continued, “Please, if you can try and understand it’s important that I do this now. I have to rest up, doctor’s orders. I have not forgotten about you. I will continue the tour as soon as I possibly can.”

The notoriously private couple wed in a secret ceremony in 2012. A rep for Jackson did not immediately return PEOPLE’s request for comment.

Janet Jackson Cancels Tour To Build A Family!

Janet Jackson‘s comeback? Not quite.

Yes, the iconic diva recently slayed again with her latest disc, Unbreakable, but let us also remind ourselves that she’s already 49 and is yet to settle in with husband Wissam Al Mana.

“I have to rest up, doctor’s orders,” the pop star says on a Twitter video message.

This might be a positive sign that Janet’s with child, but she said no more. She added, however, “My husband and I are planning our family, so I’m going to have to delay the tour. Please, if you can try and understand that it’s important that I do this now.”

Best of luck, girl!

There’s Been Another Epic ‘Lip Sync Battle’ Courtesy of Joseph Gordon-Levitt

Spike TV’s “Lip Sync Battle” has played host to dozens of A-list celebrities, each of them risking their too-cool reputations to prove that they’re the best at faux singing and complicated choreography. The latest Holiday Special saw the likes of Anthony Mackie and Joseph Gordon-Levitt vying for the title of Lip Sync Battle Champion.

Both Mackie and JGL performed very impressively, with the former performing MC Hammer’s “2 Legit 2 Quit.” But it’s JGL’s lightning-fast choreo to Janet Jackson’s “Rhythm Nation” that truly stole our hearts. Or it could have been the makeup or the ponytail, IDK.

Watch the Lip Sync Battle below. Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s part comes around the 2-minute mark.We knew Joseph Gordon-Levitt was multitalented, but this is on a whole other level. His choreography skills rival Jackon’s herself, and with a little blush and lipstick, JGL even looks the part. All hail.

Janet Jackson Is Still Rehearsing While Visiting Her Father In Brazil Following His Stroke

She sure is dedicated!

As we previously reported, Janet Jackson was forced to postpone her Unbreakable world tour on Tuesday after her father suffered a stroke while celebrating his 87th birthday in Brazil over the weekend.

And while Janet may be sitting by Joe Jackson's bedside everyday, we're hearing that she's actually still getting time in to rehearse once visiting hours are over.

The 49-year-old singer apparently brought down an entire entourage of crew to help her get ready for her performance at the iHeartRadio Music Festival this September.

[ Video: Janet Is An Insomniac In Her Music Video No Sleeep! ]

We think it's pretty safe to say she's definitely still putting in the work!

Janet will return to the states to get back to planning Unbreakable once her siblings Randy and Rebbie get to South America to take care of their dad.

Luckily, we're also hearing that Joe is already on the mend!

We hope you feel even better soon, Joe!

17 Memorable Magazine Covers: From Caitlyn to Kim to Kanye

When Caitlyn Jenner came out as a woman on the cover of Vanity Fair, she nearly did stop the presses.

But the transgender star was merely the latest celebrity to make major headlines for posing on the cover of a magazine.

Over the years, many actors/actresses/athletes have blazed a noteworthy trail on the front of a national publication, either for taking their clothes off while pregnant or taking their clothes off while NOT pregnant.

Yes, many of these covers feature nudity.

Consider yourself warned and check out some of the most iconic celebrity magazine covers of all-time:

1. Bruce Jenner Vanity Fair Cover

Bruce jenner vanity fair cover
This is our very first look at Bruce Jenner as a woman. He is gracing the cover of Vanity Fair as "Caitlyn." What do you think?

2. Ellen DeGeneres is Gay

Ellen degeneres is gay
Yup, Ellen DeGeneres is gay. This is part of her persona now, but it was groundbreaking news when she came out in 1997.

3. Demi Moore Goes Nude

Demi moore goes nude
It's commonplace now. But this Demi Moore Vanity Fair cover kickstarted the trend of stars posing naked while pregnant.

4. Jennifer Aniston on GQ

Jennifer aniston on gq
Viewers saw Jennifer Aniston very differently after this cover came out in 2009. She went from being Friendly to being drop dead sexy.

5. Honoring Princess Diana

Honoring princess diana
We all wish this magazine cover never had to be. But People best portrayed Princess Diana in 1997, as a world mourned her passing.

6. No Nipplegate Here!

Just try to find a male college student in the early 1990s who did not have this magazine cover as a poster in his dorm room.

Janet Jackson Announces New Music, A World Tour, & ‘A New Movement’ — What Does This All Mean!?!

Sweet Rhythm Nation we've been waiting for this for like, forever!!

As a birthday surprise (hers is today, May 16) Janet Jackson tweeted out a link to a mysteriously sexy video, which features her voice and some VERY thrilling information...

She'll be gifting the world with new music AND a world tour in 2015 -- AHH!

[ Related: Janet Jackson Spotted Partying In Milan! ]

Jackson's last studio album was 2008's Discipline, so this announcement has been a long time coming. It's almost hard to believe, considering just last week Atlantic Records denied that Janet was releasing a collection of jams this summer.

Anyway...

In the clip uploaded to Vimeo, you hear the songbird coo:

"I promised you'd hear it from my lips and now you will. This year: new music; new world tour; a new movement. I've been listening. Let's keep the conversation going."

Squeee!!

We wonder what this "movement" is?! After being out of the spotlight for years, this is SUCH a tease!

Ch-ch-check out the entire cryptic teaser (below)!
