When you’re a rockstar, talent and fame seem to make you even more appealing to potential partners. Whether it’s the glitz of the lifestyle or the magnetism of the music, many musicians have found themselves in relationships with partners who are either way out of their league or have a significant age gap. Let’s take a peek into the love lives of some big names from the world of pop, rock, country, and rap.
