That’s Not Your Calling Boo: Celebs Who Should Have Never Tried A Singing Career

August 25, 2014 ‐ By Iva Anthony

Sometimes success in one field can lead to success doing other things. However that was not the case with these stars who thought they could switch over and become rappers and singers.

Celebs Who Should Have Never Tried A Singing Career


Shaquille O’Neal

On the basketball court, Shaquille O’Neal could do it all, except hit a free throw. But then the NBA All-Star decided to branch out and try his hand at making movies and music. While he was entertaining on the silver screen, his attempts at rapping weren’t well received. However that didn’t phase the former Los Angeles Lakers star. Shaq has released five rap albums along with a compilation CD.

    Wow….all was correct except they couldnt be MORE wrong with the 1st one. Shaq has classic songs with Wu Tang, Mobb Deep, Notorious B.I.G., Lord Tariq & Peter Gunz, Bobby Brown, Ralph Tresvant…yeah…they messed up on that one.

    dont talk about Eddie! Eddie can sing!!!! He can even impersonate some singers!!! take Eddie off of the list!!!

  • Dee

    Lindsay and Paris had hits tho!!!!

  • Maile00

    Party All The Time was funny…still is but ummmm his collabo with Michael Jackson was terrible

    • Lost Soul

      What did Eddie sing with Michael Jackson?

      • Jay

        A song called Whatzupwitchu, look it up. Michael is the only thing that makes the song worth listening too, lol. It’s OK but again Mike makes it… Eddie isn’t a horrible singer but his voice is flat, bland and much like your typical average guy performance at a karaoke bar…

  • Dalia Oriakhi

    Eddie Murphy is not that bad!!! lol

    • Lost Soul

      I like “Party All the Time,” too. I also like Shaq rapping.
