10 Pop Star Movies That Failed to Launch Big Screen Careers
While Lady Gaga continues to earn heaps of praise for A Star Is Born, we look back at 10 other pop star-powered films that weren't quite as successful.

 

Critics and audiences are agog with excitement for Lady Gaga’s star-making turn in Bradley Cooper’s remake of A Star is Born, but not all singers who attempt the leap to the big screen are successful, and not all films meant to shepherd that transition are any good. Many would-be cinematic star-makers are egregiously, embarrassingly terrible, and even the ones that aren’t frequently fail to provide the stepping stone needed for their stars to achieve crossover success. With that in mind, we present 10 movies that attempted to make movie stars out of pop stars and failed miserably.

 

1. GOOD TIMES (1967)  0% – SONNY BONO

2. HEAD (1968)  75% – THE MONKEES

3. SGT. PEPPER'S LONELY HEARTS CLUB BAND (1978)  15% – THE BEE GEES

4. THE JAZZ SINGER (1980)  15% – NEIL DIAMOND

5. COOL AS ICE (1991)  8% – VANILLA ICE

7. GLITTER (2001)  7% – MARIAH CAREY

8. CROSSROADS (2002)  14% – BRITNEY SPEARS

9. FROM JUSTIN TO KELLY (2003)  10% – KELLY CLARKSON AND JUSTIN GUARINI

10. BURLESQUE (2010)  36% – CHRISTINA AGUILERA

Gaga has always been an anomaly in the pop world. 

 

A pop star with the vocals of a jazz diva and the acting chops of movie legends. She can truly excel at everything!
