It seems like everyone in Hollyweird wants to be a double — or even triple — threat. Will Smith acts, Drake raps, and Snoop’s made so many cameos we’ve lost count. But crossing over ain’t for everyone. Check out these 15 celebrities who tried to step out of the box but should go right back in it.

    While his first few albums’ sales weren’t officially released, Childish Gambino’s ‘Camp’ did phenomenal, sales wise and ratings. As for his name, he said himself he just got it from a Wu-Tang Clan name generator on the internet, it doesn’t have any meaning. This is the second list I have read by Meg Butler and I can already tell she is one of the worst journalists I have ever had the displeasure of following.

  • Giovonni

    Am I the only one that thinks Rihanna actually was believable and did well in Battleship? Anyway, you’re right about Beyonce and Nicki Minaj… both are pretty dreadful in their crossover attempts… BTW, whoever you guys hired to run your I.T. department needs to go back to their day job because ya’ll servers are a mess… Just sayin’.

    I roll my eyes too when I hear white kids talking about how great Childish Gambino is. He’s terrible and embarrassing to the genre. He is the anti-rap. Donald Glover, on the other hand, is the man. Nicki Minaj needs to be removed from all media all together. And I thought Beyonce and T-Boz both were good enough as actresses.

  • Ken

    Lol! This writer doesn’t understand Donald Glover’s raps… Go get a dictionary, then listen to his songs… Or even better, you should go to English class, pick up a few pointers, then start criticizing!!

    Really T-Boz a bad actress? I think Belly was a great movie maybe its because I’m a fan of Nas, TLC, and DMx and Method Man. T-Boz appeared in 2 episodes of Living Single as an actress. Beyonce….I don’t think she is a great actress at all I’m glad Jennifer Hudson stole the spotlight from her in Dreamgirls. Then Nikki Minaj…….what is her day job? Sorry I’m just being sarcastic I can’t stand her I love Mariah Carey but I haven’t watched American Idol since Ruben Studdard or that one cute guy Mario Vaszquez was a contestant on the show until he left.

  • lisa

    Nicki Minaj’s facial expressions and nicknames for the contestants on Idol are hillarious, i love her in her idol role…………dun dun is for me LOL funeeeee

  • Breezy

    In my opinion, Beyonce did good in Cadillac Records and Nicki Minaj brings life to American Idol….she makes it more entertaining.

  • No love for Donald Glover?? I HEAVILY LOVE CHILDISH GAMBINO. Everyone else is spot on!!

  • JaneDoe

    Aye ya’ll messed up with this list..

  • Seriously

    Childish Gambino?! I LOVE CHILDISH GAMBINO!! Who made this list?? Who doesn’t like Donald Glover, he’s a triple threat, if not quadruple. Smh. Childish Gambino though? No.

  • mac

    why Shawty Lo’s hair look painted on nshid.

  • Channon

    American Idol was tanked after Simon and Paula left before Nicki got there!!

  • Guest

    I like Donald Glover/Childish Gambino and i really enjoyed Beyonce in Cadillac Records.

    • Marguerite

      I liked her in that movie too. Don’t think she’s a terrible actress.

  • IllyPhilly

    Aries ain’t wrong bout 2 Chains.

    • scandalous7

      he not

  • rzakia

    Idk I like Childish Gambino (which came from the Wu Tang name simulator btw). I think he’s different, kind of refreshing. Regarding Joseline I think she should be the one putting out a workout tape. I don’t know if it’s real or fake but going on the assumption that it’s real I would follow her workout routine.

      Implants and plenty of pole work.
