Star quality is that very rare spark that resides in few people. Some of them are fortunate to make it big and others aren’t. But…there are a few that slip into Hollywood. Though they manage to remain relevant, some talentless reality stars and one-trick-pony artists aren’t nearly as charismatic or captivating as their equally popular celebrity peers. However, in show business, you either have the “it” factor or you don’t. And these nine don’t.
Check out 9 known names that are paparazzi popular but don’t do it for us.
We keep seeing Adrienne Bailon, and we keep not caring. The former 3LW group member turned Cheetah Girls group member turned Rob Kardashian’s ex is forever on the scene. But she never seems to own it in her tacky threads, nor are we sure she ever will.
As hard as it is to say, nobody is checking for Mashonda. No one should have to experience what she dealt with when it came to Swizz & Alicia, but even mainstream media hyped the new union, further proving she wasn’t on anyone’s radar as a singer or Swizz Beatz’s wife.
As beautiful as she is, Christina Milian has struggled with remaining relevant as a singer, actress, or as a producer’s girlfriend/wife. Let’s see if her stint as the Social Media Correspondent on NBC’s The Voice will open more doors for her.
Truth be told, Ryan Leslie is a talented songwriter and producer, but as a solo artist he’s lackluster. We think it could be his extreme arrogance for one. Either way, maybe keeping it behind the scenes is the best bet for Ryan.
Everyone was a fan of ANTM’s sass mouth model winner from cycle 3. But since then, Eva Marcille has become less of a top model and more of a C-list socialite. Don’t look for her on the runways or in the mags, you’re more likely to find her being a total cheese in some Atlanta hotspot.
Ameriie was set to be a bonafide star with her hit debut song, “Why Don’t We Fall In Love,” but the success hasn’t been able to stick. No matter what color she does her hair or how hot her summer bangers are, Ameriie is just not on anyone’s A-list.
You know you’re irrelevant when you join a reality show unofficially, but appear in almost every episode throughout the season. Tierra Marie has the looks, talent (well…somewhat), and charisma to make it as a singer, but one thing’s for sure: no one seems to care.
Sean Garrett was dubbed “the Pen” by Jay-Z himself because of his amazing songwriting skills that we can’t dare discredit him for. However, for years he has been trying to launch his solo career by being featured alongside popular stars. It just never works. Sad.
When Evelyn Lozada isn’t fighting her “best friends” on reality tv, she’s igniting social fury, posing half-naked, or making it rain in the strip club. But the only thing we really want to see this faulebrity do is disappear.
These 9 hopefuls aren’t necessarily hopeless, but we definitely won’t care either way!
