Grammy award-winning artists Beyonce and husband Jay-Z are the “Couple of The Decade,” while Rapper Nas and Kelis are a “not” because of their public marital issues.
“We really wanted to highlight which stars were able maintain their star power throughout the new millennium’s first decade and which ones disappeared from the spotlight,” says Monique Chenault, Senior Producer, “TV One Access.” “All of the celebrities featured in ‘The Decade of Hotness and Not-ness’ began the decade with a lot of promise and potential. Some met and exceeded all expectations. Others, unfortunately, met their fate.”

The “City of The Decade” is Atlanta, which has been highlighted thanks to the many stars that call it their home, such as Tyler Perry and Jermaine Dupri.
