When you become rich and famous, it seems that you can pretty much do anything that you want. Many confident celebrities try their hand at other art forms, and one of the most common examples of this is movie stars going into music. Nine times out of 10 this will prove to be a complete disaster. Many of these records by actors were so terrible that they were quickly swept under the rug so as to avoid any embarrassment, but today we have lifted up the rug to bring you 10 of the worst releases.
10. Jennifer Love Hewitt – Let’s Go Bang
We all know and love Jennifer Love Hewitt as a “Scream Queen” and for starring on Ghost Whisperer, but she also tried to launch a music career as she was breaking onto the acting scene. Although this was not a successful endeavor worldwide, she did become a star in Japan, as her pop-driven sound proved to be very popular. She achieved this at just 12 years old, and after joining Party of Five she signed to Atlantic Records and released the woeful Let’s Go Bang. The album and its three singles failed to chart and Atlantic dropped Hewitt, but this did not deter her. She released another two records which performed marginally better, but it was evident that acting was the way forwards for Hewitt. Although not a terrible singer and capable of writing her own music, her music was far too sweet and sugar-coated for most (apart from in Japan, evidently).
