Marr grew up in Ardwick, until in the early ’70s his family moved to Wythenshawe in South Manchester, where he attended St Augustine’s Catholic Grammar School. He later enrolled at Wythenshawe College, becoming the President of the Student Union.

His interest in music was developed during his teenage years, when he formed a band called Paris Valentinos, then he became a member of the band called White Dice and his third band was called Freak Party, but it was short-lived too.

In 1982 Marr met Steven Morrissey, and together they formed The Smiths. With Marr on guitar and Morrissey on vocals, the band was completed by bassist Andy Rourke and drummer Mike Joyce. In 1983 they signed with the indie label Rough Trade Records, releasing the single “Hand in Glove”, and the following year saw the release of their debut self-titled album which reached #2 on the UK Albums chart, greatly contributing to the band’s popularity. With his name becoming more known, Marr’s net worth began to increase too.

Their next album, “Meat Is Murder”, came out in 1985, reaching #1 on the UK Albums chart, and extensive tours followed, providing the band with a high level of fame and a large fan base.. Their third album, the 1986 “The Queen Is Dead”, was also a commercial and critical success, enabling Marr to further increase his popularity and his wealth as well. However, around this time he and Morrissey became involved in a conflict, which led him to leave the band in 1987. Shortly after, The Smiths, by now considered as one of the most influential bands of the ’80s, fell apart.

Marr went on to briefly perform with bands such as The Pretenders and The The, until in 1989 he formed an alternative dance band called Electronic, with New Order singer and guitarist Bernard Sumner. After releasing a hit single “Getting Away with It” in 1989, they went on to release their debut album in 1991, entitled “Electronics”. The album achieved great success, both critically and commercially, considerably adding to Marr’s fortune. Two more albums followed by the end of the decade, achieving modest success.

Meanwhile, Marr also worked as a session musician and writing collaborator for numerous artists and bands, including The Pet Shop Boys, Bryan Ferry, Kristy MacColl, Oasis and Billy Bragg.
In 2000 he formed a new band called Johnny Marr and the Healers, adding Zak Starkey on drums, Lee Spencer on guitar and Alonza Bevan on bass. Marr himself was the band’s singer and songwriter. They released one album in 2003, entitled “Boomslang”.

In 2006 he joined Modest Mouse, appearing in the band’s acclaimed 2007 album “We Were Dead Before the Ship Even Sank”. The same year he served as a Visiting Professor of Music at the University of Salford, rewarded with an honorary doctorate from the university. All contributed to his net worth.

In 2008 Marr switched to another band, the Cribs. He wrote, played, and toured in support of their 2009 album “Ignore the Ignorant”, but leaving the band in 2011. He then pursued a solo career, releasing his debut solo album, “The Messenger”, in 2013. His second album, “Playland”, came out the following year so Marr’s solo career cemented his status of a talented artist, improving his wealth in a great way. Meanwhile, he also collaborated with other artists and bands, such as Hans Zimmer and Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds.

In his private life, Marr has been married to Angie Brown since 1986. They have two children together.

Milla Jovovich Net Worth

Published

on

Milla Natasha Jovovich was born on 17 December 1975, in Kiev, Ukraine (then in the USSR), and is a model, actress and singer, perhaps best known for her breakthrough role in the film “The Fifth Element” in 1997, with Bruce Willis and Gary Oldman.

So just how rich is Milla Jovovich, as of late 2017? Authoritative sources estimate that Milla has a net worth of over $45 million, accumulated from her various career elements spanning almost 30 years since she began modelling in 1987.

Milla Jovovich Net Worth $45 Million

Milla had a really unusual childhood, maybe that’s one of the reasons for her multi-million dollar net worth. Jovovich started her carrier in modeling from the early age of nine, a few years after she and her parents moved from Ukraine, which at that time belonged to the Soviet Union, to Los Angeles, California, in 1980. She even dropped out of school at the age of 12, when Gene Lemuel discovered her, and she signed a contract with Prima Modeling Agency. Milla Jovovich  was covered by magazines including Vogue, Glamour, Madmoiselle, Cosmopolitan, Seventeen, and has been advertising brands including L’oreal, Christian Dior, Calvin Klein, Donna Koran, Revlon for many years.

However, exclusive looks and beauty was not the only value she had: Milla Jovovich has a great voice, a talent to write songs, design fashion and find herself in acting as well. Milla started her acting career in 1988 in the film “Two Moon Junction”, but the roles that gave this girl much more attention were in “Dazed and Confused” in 1993 and “The Fifth Element” in 1997 directed by Luc Besson, in which she worked with Bruce Willis. Of course, subsequently all five films based on “Resident Evil” made Milla Jovovich’s popularity and net worth go through the roof. The original movie was so successful that it was even turned into a video game.

Between her acting in those two movies, Milla tried the shoes of a singer and a song writer, and released her debut album – “The Divine Comedy – which was really appreciated by the audience and critics and even received positive feedback from Rolling Stone magazine’s, John McAlley; in his opinion the album was remarkable. In 1999 Milla Jovovich became a member of the band named Plastic Has Memory, and performed some gigs in New York and Las Vegas, but unfortunately not with her new band, and Milla has never released a second album.

As for her career in fashion, Milla launched her first line in 2003, and her brand was successful until 2008 when she decided to close her business because of lack of time, which is perhaps no surprise, assuming that all of her free time was taken-up by her daughter Ever Gabo Anderson, who was born in 2007.

As for other details of Milla’s personal life, aside from several well-known relationships, she has married three times, all husbands met when taking some part in films in which she was acting. She first married Shawn Andrews in 1992, which was apparently quickly annulled by her mother; ironically, he and Milla were starring in “Dazed and Confused”! The second was with the director of “The Fifth Element” – Luc Besson (1997-99), and she has been married to Paul W. S. Anderson, who worked with Jovovich on the set of “Resident Evil”, since 2009, and he is the father of her two daughters. The family is based in Los Angeles.

Milla is something of a philanthropist too, and often participates in and supports various charities including UNICEF, World Education, Ovarian Cancer Research Fund and many more.
