7 Most Powerful Celebrity Couples
It’s a great feeling to be in power. However it is a different ballgame altogether when your power gets doubled thanks to the presence of a partner who is considered equally or more powerful. It is rare for two powerful people to get along so well and start living under the same roof. This is exactly what these power couples of the glam world are doing. Have a look at the most powerful celebrity couples.
1. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie
THE most powerful Hollywood couple is 'Brangelina', the name tagged by the international paparazzi for partners Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. When the quintessential blue eyed boy with golden hair met the wild child that Jolie was, sparks flew and there was burning chemistry. With six children and six Academy Awards nominations between them, they are unarguably the most lucrative film couple in the industry. Pitt and Jolie also set up the Maddox Jolie-Pitt Foundation in 2006 showing that powerful couples have their hearts in the right place.

2. Jay-Z and Beyonce
If Brangelina is the power couple of Hollywood, then the music industry has Jay-Z and Beyonce. These musical icons of Hip Hop and R&B have set the music scene on fire since 2002 when they started dating and are since then happily married with a little girl. Beyonce has won 16 Grammy awards, alone and with girl-group Destiny’s Child while Jay-Z has grabbed 13 of them. These awards are enough to sum up the power they hold over the multimillion dollar music industry.
