...but didn't everybody look like El Debarge & 'nem when Whitney got started? LOL
I'd look like Alek Wek in comparison.

I hate how people aren't showing Black legendary celebs respect anymore

Britney Spears is washed up imo but they still love her despite the fact she's not in her prime anymore. It seems like every washed up white entertainer can come back with lesser talent but is still given the same amount of respect as when they left but the Black entertainments are left performin' in people's basements and sh*t smh

'they' are an artists' core fan base
i know there are hardcore Brandy fans [i see them on my timeline]
britbrit will always have a fan base but it will likely never be people who are now 11 or 12, but ppl who were that age when she first came out
whitney always had a fan base
lauren hill will always have a dedicated fan base
if you are successful and endear yourself to your fans even if you're not in your prime, they will still support you
it's not about race imo. old heads love old head artists

That's really 2 separate questions that could be their own threads rolled into one thread:

1. Is it about talent in the ent. industry? --> HELL NO. It's about connections, leverage & EVERYTHING ELSE! Some of the most talented people are the people who will never be discovered.

2. Will dark girls be mainstream? --> Eventually, but for them to become mainstream, it's going to take an overhaul of the collective psyche of the AA community. Without AA's collectively demanding it more in the media and encouraging the approval & uplift of dark girls in the community at large, there's always going to be a subset of ppl who think it's acceptable to say "you're pretty for a dark girl".

i just think ppl don't have faith in record execs to put the money behind a dark african american girl and for the masses to receive her in the same way they do ppl with those other features.  America is weird.

wasn't Kelly much bigger in Europe?
