You ever looked at a celebrity and thought…”Damn, what happened?” Some celebrities are destined for greatness with their talent and personality, but for some reason aren’t successful. Here are 9 celebrities who were suppose to be great, but dropped the ball.
Memphis Bleek had Jay Z to guide him professionally and musically, but somehow his career never really popped. Could have been worse though right, ask Chris & Neef.
Shyne had the best flow out back in the early 2000s. He was suppose to save Hip Hop with his “Biggie” voice. After serving years in prison only to be deported, Shyne is almost more famous for his side curls than his hits.
Lindsay in “Mean Girls” was at the top of her acting talent and never looked better. She could have had Julia Roberts’ career, but instead she’s chashing checks selling $2 million interviews with Oprah about her phucked up life. Tough life.
There’s no disputing Lauryn Hill was a great singer and rapper, but we all expected more from her. We thought “The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill” was only the beginning and Lauryn might even top Beyonce’s level of success. Hopefully she comes out of prison swinging.
Don’t get us wrong, she’s no #Poor Michelle. While Kelly’s had her hits, her beautiful voice, style and personality haven’t been enough to earn her a Pepsi endorsement or a Superbowl half-time show. Too bad, wouldn’t it be fun to watch her battle it out for a Grammy with Bey and Rihanna?
Marion was suppose to have a place in history like Gabby Douglas. However no one remembers her for the great athlete she once was…just that she took illegal performance enhancing drugs. Five Olympic medals gone…Cotdamn.
Poor Melo. He’s considered one of the best in the league, but while Kobe and Lebron have multiple rings, Carmelo plays for a team that hasn’t won a championship in years. Maybe it’s not too late for him though, hopefully he’ll find some way to keep J.R. Smith out the club and Amar’e prom punching fire extinguishers.
Lauren London used to be the hottest chick in the game. Then she fell for a condom allergic rapper who made her sister wives to a cocktail waitress, a manicurist and a ’90’s R&B singer. Once Wayne proved anyone could have her, poor New New ended up getting served over and over again as the same sorry side dish in every cookie cutter Black Hollyweird production.
Though he’s far from Young Money’s MVP, Tyga has earned some stripes thanks to big hits like “Rack City.” It’s just too bad his baby mama’s cakes are more memorable than his sixteens. Maybe it’s time to ease up on getting “Faded”? Naaaaaah, he don’t give a fawk!
