Are popgirls in movies a thing again?

17 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

The early 2000s gave us cinematic achievements such as Crossroads and Glitter (which were REAL vehicles). Kylie had an appearance in Moulin Rouge, not to mention Burlesque and Dreamgirls later in the decade; with Evita and the Bodyguard in the 90s. Also Jennifer and the rest of Whitney's filmography that had cute hits.

 

Ever since Lady Gaga's A Star Is Born, there has been a new wave of popgirl in movies:

 

Rita in Detective Pikachu

Beyonce in The Lion King

Taylor in Cats

Ariana in The Prom

and most likely Gaga again in Guardians of the Galaxy 3

 

while some movies have been more critically well received than others :foxaylove2: they have all made serious money and are considered huge successes. Is everyone going to turn to acting again? Do they even need to?

^ Gaga stan, i think you forgot that JLo has been doing movies since 1997 and she has couple of box office number 1 movies etc.  

She opened the door for many others, as always.

1997 to 2019 is literally 22 years, it took 22 years for JLo's impact to be felt? Slay I guess.

LOL you didn't even read the OP

It clearly states "new wave of pop girl"

The OP also clearly mentioned the older wave of Evita and Glitter

 

Did you even bother reading the OP? Yikes :doc:

When haven't pop girls not been doing films? :rip:

Barbra. Diana Ross, Madonna, Janet, Mariah, Jlo, Bey, Rih, Britney, Taylor? 

Pop girls filming isn't a trend, they're popular and film execs use their popularity to market their films

Rita did her role in Pokemon before ASIB came out, as did Beyonce. But yes Gaga started the trend! :skull:

I'm pretty sure Barbra Streisand and Diana Ross did this before our faves were even born.

It has always been a thing and it never stopped. Gaga's fans are delusional. I think even Rita Ora have been in more movies than her.

Yes Rita, Beyoncé, Ariana and Taylor saw Gaga doing Asib and immediately ran to their agents begging them to book them for a movie

Pop girls have always done movies, it’s not something that just started becoming popular because of Gaga. If anything, the credit should clearly go to Barbra Streisand who led the way for Gaga and others.

I’m not saying it’s because of Gaga though? Just that they all mainly came out after it
