Do you really think that Kelly's career hasn't reached a plato because she dark skinned? Out of curiosity how many of her CD's have you purchased?
That's what I thought.
I don't think the fact that Kelly's career hasn't taken off is do to the color of her skin. Save the race card for another time. She's just not a good entertainer! :0)
Just because you sing and perform doesn't mean that everyone is going to find you entertaining. Take me for example I think I can sing my azz off, my friends and family tell me to put a muzzle on it (*** the *** up)! ;0(
I don't think she has a chance at making because everyone is expecting her to be as good as Beyonce.
Her skin tone has nothing to do with it!
ACTUALLY i think her skin tone plays a small role in her lack of success.
THE MAJOR FACTOR is that she is not marketed as well as Beyonce is. unfortunately her management is not working for her, what she needs to do is sleep with a famous rapper who has some pull/influence in the music industry and then turn the relationship into a career move..sound familiar?
but on the real, Kelly is for the most part..real and she tries to manage being herself but the public can see only Beyonce...because Bey shakes her a$$ for the cash. Bey is nothing new, she's just recycling the old.
Kelly is talented than most, but she needs to have control over her career.
she once said she would never work on an album with jay-z (because he's bey's territory) but does that mean that he can't work on her record?
let's be real, Jay-z made Beyonce a success.
just because jay is with b doesn't mean that he is off limits to Kelly, after all music is his business.
and when does sexy mean not wearing pants??
Kelly is Kelly and she doesn't try to be Beyonce or anyone else, the ISSUE IS people want her to be Beyonce.
is Beyonce the standard of the african american songstress?
because setting her as the standard, ain't raising the bar too high....
-shake your a$$ for the dollars
-write songs that really aren't that good but good enough to get you recognized
-promote yourself shamelessly through several commercials
- form a relationship with a famous rapper who will improve your career
- shamelessly steal the moves on a singer (shakira) and have a duet with her but on the spanish speaking version of the song you do it entirely - just to prove that you want to learn spanish (although you have no real intentions and you just want to reach out to your latin audience.
- perform your #1 hit with a country group you don't even listen to and really don't like
- oh yeah and steal a few songs...one by desree and make a video even though you don't have the permission...why do i need permission i'm BEYONCE?
