Dnn111 has an OK reputation so far
Default What Are the Odds of Being a Famous Singer?

Like Beyonce, Rihanna, Ashanti, Chris Brown, Omarion...etc these days.




Is it harder now as opposed to older days like Michael Jackson, Aretha Franklin, The Temtpations, Smokey Robinson, Al Green or Curtis Mayfield.


Please tell me. What are the odds or probablilty...PS I know you have to work really hard!

PS:Look: I know I make a lot of music threads, but it's because I have a passion for it: Sorry. I LOVE MUSIC!!!

I think it's much easier these days....just post a video if you singing on youtube. And if you're lucky you can be famous on the internet.

Yeah, Just go on American Idol and make it near the end and if your halfway decent you'll get a contract. Kerry Clarkson, that black chick, Clay AIken, Rubben Studdard, Fantasia, Kerry Underwood, Chris Daughtry, Jordan Sparks, Blake Lewis, David Cook, David Archuleta.. All guys that were from American Idol.

no olden days it was more about talent less about appearance look at fatass aretha franklin you think sheĉd get anywhere in the pop world today no, even though she has thee best voice ever, bland stupid music like Leona Lewis will get signed over aretha just because arethas a fatass. Rihanna and Beyonce are good, chris brown has so much talent, but its turds like Leona Lewis that make today easier to become a pop artist and ok to be honest even tho i like Rihanna she doesnt sing well live

Leona Lewis can actually sing. You should replace her with Britney Spears.

it has nothing to do with quality but everything to do with more people having access to radios, media containers and players, tv and internet.

Chances are more slim like Amy Winehouse winning a poker-game.

Make a catchy pop song and you're there.

Have a decent voice, then let yourself be heard.
