The Conveyor Belt of Fame

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by Michael Jewels, Mar 23, 2005.


  1. OK, gang, this thread is to get your ideas and opinions as to who is on the way in, and who is on the way out.

    You can post about any person or group that's an obvious celebrity, or someone who may not be so familiar to the masses.

    Actors, politicians, sports figures, authors or even musicians. :p

    Name your person, and give a short story as to why you think their star is rising/fading, but please don't bash anyone unfairly.

    Please nominate 3 at most in order to give others a chance.

    My nominee: Britney Spears. OUT - I just feel her exposed mid-drift and not-so-catchy songs of late have taken her about as far as she's gonna go in show biz. I could be very wrong, but that's not the purpose of this thread.

    You're on the air. :cool:

    Mike ;)
     
  2. Opps!

    I forgot; please start your thread with the words, in or out to set the tone of your post.

    Mike
