Warren, 42, is a songwriter who has written more pop hits than any other writer (since the mid-80s, anyway). Three of those - "Un-Break My Heart" (Toni Braxton)," "Because You Loved Me" (Celine Dion), and "I Don't Want to Miss a Thing" (Aerosmith) - were among the biggest hits of the 90's. She wrote "Blame It On the Rain" (Milli Vanilli) and "Rhythm of the Night" (DeBarge), which you may remember from...that movie, starring Vanity.

She has her own publishing company, Realsongs, which grossed $25 million last year from her copyrights. It's why she's done so well: most songwriters lose a significant portion of their proceeds. Publishers take 25% and performance royalties are split between publishers and writers.

(Warren) has a reputation, even in the music business, for being vulgar. Her sense of humor, which she terms "pretty twisted," focuses on body parts and body noises, and she swears like a teenager in detention. She dislikes travel, has no hobbies and rarely takes time out from a seven-day workweek.

She called "How Do I Live" her love song to music.
Warren has a parrot named Buttwings.
