Perez, Lindsay, Carmelo, Justin & Kim: 5 Celebs We Don’t Want Music From
With news of Kim Kardashian in the recording studio getting ready to release new music, you can’t help but fear other celebrities are going to follow suit. Some celebs have taken a shot at the music game and met with success, but I can’t imagine hearing my favorite movie star rapping a verse or singing a hook. I’m nervous some of Hollywood’s finest will soon be on Worldstar dropping mixtapes. Although everyone has a right to do what they want, the celebrities below should certainly never entertain the idea of releasing songs:
Perez Hilton built a successful celebrity blogging career. He had a cameo in Rihanna‘s “S&M” music video, but if I were him, I wouldn’t take it any further. Should he release a song, he’d be guaranteed coverage on his site.
Lindsay Lohan had a minor career as a pop singer a few years ago but recent run-ins with the law and stints in rehab have halted a comeback. if there is any chance of Lindsay rising to fame (again), she should stick to getting her swag back in films.
Carmelo is the talk of the town with his recent move to the New York Knicks. Bringing this baller to the Big Apple will ensure some of NYC’s own rap stars are sitting courtside. NBA athletes and hip-hop players are known for being cool with each other, so someone may put a bug into Melo’s ear to write a few verses. Here’s hoping ‘Melo recognizes the example set by fellow hoopers Shaq and Ron Artest and avoids the rap game.
Justin Bieber is one of the biggest pop artists out there. He dropped his own movie, Never Say Never, and has collaborations with some hip-hop biggest artists, including Kanye West, Raekwon and Soulja Boy. JB even spit a verse over Vado and Cam’ron‘s “Speaking Tungs” track. He didn’t sound terrible and he has the pop/R&B thing on smash, but I don’t think the world is ready for Justin Bieber the rapper.
In case you haven’t heard, Kim Kardashian’s been in the studio with The Dream. While proceeds from her music sales will go to a cancer organization, I still think Kim and music are a bad mix. If her sound matches how she looks in the music video (cornrows), then we’re in trouble.
