Would You Get Any If You Weren’t Famous? 10 Celeb Men Who Would Struggle Without The Money

November 16, 2012  |

There are some celebrity men who just seem to get a lot of women. While some of them may be moderately attractive, we suspect that if they didn’t have that moo-la that wouldn’t be baggin the women like they do.

Waka Flocka

You may know by now that I have a…primal attraction toward Waka. And while I think he’s a hood cutie, his unintelligible speech, ratchet lyrical content and the fact that his mom wears plastic hair make Waka pretty much undateable. And while he might have had a bit of luck before the fame because of his looks, if he didn’t have a successful rap career, most women wouldn’t pay Waka too much attention.

This one should come as no surprise, considering Biggie talked about his lady struggles in his own rhymes. But once his talents were exposed and a brotha started making some money, women were flocking. But if Biggie had remained the big dude, with the lazy eye hustling on the corner, would he ever have the exposure to meet, let alone marry a woman like Faith Evans? Probably not.

Say what you want about Cash Money but the law of attraction really worked for them with this name. Cash Money has been able to expand their empire to include a publishing company and a clothing line in addition to their record label. They’ve done well for themselves; but if Baby– Bryan– was a 43 year old man walking around with a grill and star tattoos on his bald head, women would not be breaking their necks to check for him. Honestly, I’m not quite sure how many women are checking for him now.

Lil Wayne

Speaking of the Cash Money family, Lil Wayne is another man whose sexcapades and numerous baby mamas always surprise me. Maybe a sista could have worked with him before he had all those tattoos and hadn’t started heavily abusing drugs. But now, the money and probably, even the charisma, has had many a woman caught all the way up.

Rick Ross

You’d be surprised at the number of women who are just so enamored with Mr. Ross. They claim he has swag. I wonder if women back in his security guard days saw things that way?

The Dream

Now, most of the men I’ve mentioned so far have been a bit less than attractive. But The Dream is really not ugly. He just seems so terribly lame. And if he hadn’t written some mega hits, I don’t know if women, including Christina Milan, would be able to put up with his corniness.

Ray J

Maybe even the money and the family name couldn’t help Ray J when it came to the ladies. Hence the Vh1 show. But then again, there was Kim Kardashian… We really can’t rationalize her anyway.

Eric Williams

Man it’s not even about looks for Eric, though he’s not the finest man in the world. His attitude is just terrible. Remember his comments after Evelyn’s domestic violence incident? He talked about the both of them having knots on their head now. What a jerk! A washed up, bitter, former basketball player? I doubt any woman would want to deal with that.

Flavor Flav

Flavor Flav is another one whose success with the ladies completely baffles me. The man had women literally fighting over him. We never had the chance to know Flavor Flav’s mack journey before fame. Initially, he was with Public Enemy then he had two seasons of that hit show and baby mamas before and after. What is it about this man?

  • Mr. Silk

    I see Eric Williams on here but why Sam Cassell isn’t on this list is beyond me.

  • Mr. Silk

    Sorry, but you’re wrong about Biggie. Biggie was bagging chicks before his fame, he spoke about that in his rhymes too. Black and ugly as ever, however I stayed coogi down to the socks. He hooked up with Kim before he got his deal and Kim was banging back in the day. He may have been fat with a lazy eye, but he had a velvet tongue to pull the honeys.

  • jussayin

    would they have a better chance if they were white?

  • how is ray j on this list at all? smh. and where is jay z?? he needs to be number 1!

  • lobsterlol

    This is such a lame post. Everybody gets with someone because of something. EVERYBODY! Would you get any if you looked a different way?

  • Vennegoor Hasselienk

    Why are there only black men here. Are you telling me all the white dudes are attractive ?

  • Jamie

    Oh lil Wayne’s predictor looking Arse would most definitely not get any I don’t think the animals in the jungle he came from would even throw him a banana!

  • Jamie

    What?!! Waka Flaka’s mama’s plastic hair and his speech has nothing to do with those lips of his which would allow him to get some any day of the week!

  • Mina

    The only that Rick Ross has is sweat. Under his boobs and in the beard. ick!!

  • kissntell

    I remember when people used to say that the Dream looks like a turtle out of his shell. Thats still funny to me.

  • Earthspirit1

    I can’t believe MN missed Akon, you know, the singer with like 5 different wives?

  • Tamz

    No one could donate a noontsy for me to sleep with Flav…sorry.

  • Ray J is a cutie. He probably still would have gotten some. But he wouldn’t be the massive man-whore he is.

    • E McArthur

      I’d holler at him but I just wouldn’t tell nobody

  • Me123

    Lil Wayne looks like a roach & the Dream should consider being CEO of Cornballs Anonymous. Money or not I’m not here for them or anyone else on this list.

  • tee

    Where is ceelo green?

  • NVAdamzz

    I don’t see how y’all said “But if Biggie had remained the big dude, with the lazy eye hustling on the corner, would he ever have the exposure to meet, let alone marry a woman like Faith Evans? Probably not.” like Faith Evans is some prize. She’s a hood rat herself so she’d probably be attracted to Biggie for the simple fact that he was a hustler.

  • Just saying!!

    How the he** do you put Ray J on this list but not Jay Z??? *Confused*

  • Rose

    what about gucci mane or birdman I’m surprised they didn’t make the list

    • Purple_Crush

      Err uhh…unless he was added after your comment, he’s picture #3


    Your forgetting the most important one of all JAY-Z!

    • E McArthur

      I didn’t go through the list but I thought they would at least have Jay Z

  • J


  • J

    This list is incomplete with Gucci Mane!

    • IllyPhilly

      YES!!!! Did Master P make the cut?

  • coffeecc

    take ray j off add drake

    • IllyPhilly

      Yes lawd! He look like somebody slow cousin.

  • serena

    no jay z? really?

  • Nenah

    Why does Wacka always look slow?

    • Charle

      I’ll give you one guess!

  • the ONLY 1 who i would consider is The Dream and thats if he promises not to talk. the rest of em not a chance in h*ll.

    • E McArthur

      the dream sounds like a chick

  • Trisha_B

    Birdman, i believe, is still w/ the mother of his children. I doubt he’s worrying about big booty girls that are old enough to be his daughter…I love me some Rick Ross. Ain’t nothing wrong w/ a husky man lol. & if he was a CO & i met him, i would still talk to him b/c that’s a job w/ benefits, something i don’t have. As long as he still carried himself like a boss, it’s all good! 😉

  • Mhhmmm

    Faith was making more money songwriting than Biggie when they met-he wasnt even on like that yet. So I think Big had some serious swag, regardless of his money.

    • Nenah

      I have to disagree. Did you see his first BM? No shade, but she looked just like him.

      • VirgoStarr

        LMAO Damn the truth hurts…your side from laughing so much!

      • Purple_Crush

        No you didn’t say that?! LMAOOO!!!

      • Mhhmmm

        LMAOOOO!I HAD to laugh at that one!

      • Jerzee Gurl

        I don’t even know you and I hate you!!!! I am DYING over here!!!!!

      • E McArthur


      • IllyPhilly

        LOL. But Big never said he ain’t like it. “Take four in the back, two if ya fat.”

    • BlackNGreen

      Have you ever seen Faith when she met BIG. She had one eyebrow, a phuqed up home dye job pulled into two pathetic ponytails. And she was
      happy. Like many women, money and makeup changed her life.

      • IllyPhilly

        Yoooooo, one brow?! Bwhahahaha, I’m done!

  • Briana Kirsten

    LMAO. Dying laughing. “His mother wears plastic hair”

  • Kevin Hart & Kat Williams should be on this list. They’re both funny but they wouldn’t be able to sleep with the quality of women that they’re sleeping with now if they didn’t have money.

    If a man has charm and swag and dresses well, it doesn’t matter what he looks like. His aura alone will attract all types of women.


      “If a man has charm and swag and dresses well, it doesn’t matter what he looks like. His aura alone will attract all types of women.”

      Yes it does. We have to stop lying to guys about what they can get away with. That’s how the Ugly Rapper Movement got started in the first place.

      • E McArthur

        its like an ugly people movement going on right now cuz you even got jacked up hoodrats thinking their mad fly cuz they got their stuff hanging out…I HATE IT! I don’t wanna see these women or men thinking they can even reach my level….

      • IllyPhilly

        Dooooooone!!! Ugly Movement?! Bwhahahaha, that’s gonna be on a shirt soon.

      • Mrs. Urban

        Ugly Rapper Movement…..LMAO

    • IamKiNG

      Kevin Hart, albeit short, is fine. He’s funny and good looking. You right about Katt though. Yuck!

  • Silvermist

    Why isn’t Camel on this list. You Beyonce wouldn’t give him the time of day, let alone have a child with him, if he wasn’t filthy rich. Famous or not famous, there any I would want. Money just isn’t that important to me that I would comprise myself or deal want to deal with a manhoe. Mick Jagger? Really?

    • Mhhmmm

      Jay z should be at the top of this list!

      • Nenah

        Heck yeah. He’s been having money for a long time. He know he’s nothing without some money. He was that ugly dope dealer in the hood who pulled good looking chicks.

        • Trisha_B

          It’s not always about looks! Granted some of these guys aren’t good looking, they could have a beautiful personality, carry themselves w/ confidence, etc. Don’t we always tell young girls it’s not about the outside, it’s what’s on the inside that counts? Why can’t that apply to boys/men? You can add Tyson beckford, Kanye West, & Tyrese to this list too. B/c they are big douche bags, attitudes i know women would not put up w/ if thy were average joes. But b/c they got money & have nice bodies (except ‘Ye) we over look it. I’ll take Jay Z, the hard working, business man, big lip/nose self any day over a guy whose considered beautiful but got the ambition & personality of dirt

          • Nenah

            But the article is about ugly men who have money. Beyonce would not be with him if was the ugly nice dude living in Brooklyn with a nice personality. Sorry boo.

            • Trisha_B

              & half the guys on this list isn’t ugly! They just don’t meet the standards of the writer & their a**holes…Bey & Jay most likely would not have met anyway lol. Let’s see if guys would still want Beyonce if she didn’t have no money, not rocking lacefronts, & her lack of style. They been together for 10 years, she’s attracted to more of him than his money. why is that so hard to believe. Not everybody is shallow! I’m sure a list like this about women would never be posted on here b/c when it comes to women its the inside that counts, women are suppose to unite smh

              • Trisha_B

                **if she didn’t have any money…

              • Nenah

                Mama Tina would not have allowed Jays hood rat arse to be with Beyonce if he didn’t have millions of dollars. Period.

              • tyquinn


              • Jessica2248

                i’m going to go out on a limb and say money or not, Bey can pull most men.

            • Alohilani

              How can you be so sure of what Beyonce would not do?

              • Nenah

                Because she didn’t.

            • Jessica2248

              true! she’s with the ugly dude that worth over half a billion dollars!! lol!

            • Jessica2248

              true! she’s with the ugly dude that worth over half a billion dollars!! lol!

          • Just saying!!

            What does the business man whose working for the MONEY have to do with what’s inside? I don’t get the impression that any of these guys are good-looking on the inside either honestly (though I don’t know them….I’m just going off of the vibe I get). Give me a Hill Harper any day shoot!! lol

          • Just saying!!

            …and besides the list isn’t full of ugly guys necessarily!

          • $5$5$5$

            How did Kanye get put up next to Tyrese and Tyson Beckford?

      • Jessica2248

        hell yeah!!!

      • Jessica2248

        hell yeah!!!

    • Lese

      for real!! i mean come on…her songs be talking that ish all day!!!

      “if you aint makin money, u aint got nothing for me”????
      “let me upgrade you”

      “ring the alarm” she gon be rockin chinchilla coats if i let you go
      …..yea shes wit him purely his personality and wonderful charm 🙂

      • Nenah

        Real talk. Just like any chick with Donald Trump isn’t with him for his sparkling personality and head full of hair.

      • Alohilani

        But Beyonce doesn’t write her own music and some of the songs that are written for her are written by men.

  • IllyPhilly

    IDK, I can’t say for sure if they would struggle. The spit/d!ck game can get to a lot of women.

  • Wait…..Flav has money?

  • Miemie

    don’t know how anyone can get with Flavor Flav, Dude looks like a deep fried Bat. crispy and all. nuh uh! keep your money honey!

  • princess courtenay

    i agree with this list EXCEPT for the big guys….lawd know i love a fat man!! *whispers* call me rick *wink*

    • Charle

      Big dudes = the best cuddle sessions ever.

  • gracie

    Its hard to believe those beautiful women were throwing themselves at favor flav eeeeeew! On a better note I think you are wrong about ray j. He’s cute to me .

    • Ray J should not have been included in this list. He is a good looking guy.

      • Tisha

        I agree!

      • Trisha_B

        But he’s a complete jerk! Girls wouldn’t deal w/ a guy like him, but he has a little money & a famous sister so they over look it

    • MIYO K.

      It’s not hard to believe. They weren’t doing it for him. They were doing it for the fame.

    • VirgoStarr

      I agree with you about Ray J. I think his arrogance has him on this list, but he is handsome.

    • maggie

      He is lame

    • Jessica2248

      Flavor may be a very nice guy! You never know. If he gets rid of all that gold in his mouth, and get some regular teeth.

  • MIYO K.

    The men of this list rarely attract decent women. The women who they do attract are usually much like them.
