5. Janet Jackson
There are quite a few surprising facts when it comes to pop icon Janet Jackson – firstly, she gave birth to her first child at the age of 50 and secondly, she identifies as a Muslim, just like her brother Jermaine. In her younger years, Janet proudly rocked her sex symbol status, complete with racy appearances and even racier stage outfits – but that didn’t stop the star from converting to Islam once she wed her now estranged billionaire husband Wissam Al Mana. Once she made the transition towards a Muslim lifestyle, Janet also opted for tamer lyrics as well as more modest outfits and she was often spotted wearing clothing similar to the traditional hijab.
