29 Singers Who Thought They'd Give This Acting Thing A Go... And Failed

Get Started

Please stop.

29 tragically painful 'acting' attempts by musicians who should stick to their day job. They all had success as singers or rappers, but who told them that they could act? With the possible exception of Evita, Madonna has been insufferable on-screen in movies like Shanghai Surprise, Dick Tracy, Body of Evidence and Who's That Girl. Mariah Carey scored a Razzie for Worst Actress for her performance in the box office disaster Glitter. The soundtrack to Purple Rain practically defined the '80s with songs like "When the Doves Cry"and "Let's Go Crazy," but Prince's acting in the movie elicited giggles. Rihanna needed more than an "umbrella, ella, ella" to protect her from the downpour of bad reviews she got for Battleship. Beyoncé is laughably bad in Obsessed an an upper-class housewife who suspects her man is getting it on with a white woman from work. Britney Spears scored two Razzies for her panned performance in Crossroads: one for Worst Actress and another for Worst Original Song. Also, is anyone clamoring for another Spice Girls movie? Don't you all chime in at once...

Other musicians who unfortunately decided to scratch that itch to act include Vanilla Ice, Tiffany, Debbie Gibson, 50 Cent, Christina Aguilera, Kelly Clarkson, Kelly Rowland, Snoop Dogg, Dr. Dre, Björk and many more. Read on! Get Started
