Music And Television Superstars That Came From Boy Bands

November 22nd, 2014 7:00pm EST
9 Music And Television Superstars That Came From Boy Bands
Most boy bands follow a distinct formula. They are brought together by a rich music producer of sorts and taught to sing, dance synchronically and of course, use a multitude of hair products. After progressively releasing three popular albums, they need to "take a break" and soon, their break becomes a longstanding hiatus. Eventually they reunite for a big comeback show, but their fans have moved on and they disappear into the sunset again.

Very few music superstars are able to break out of the boy band mold and make it big in the world of music. A select few become music legends. These 9 ...

Taylor Swift Is Totally Unstoppable On Billboard 200

Taylor Swift Is Unstoppable On Billboard 200: This Week In Music
Face it folks, Taylor Swift is a juggernaut – the gift that keeps on giving generously to the music industry after a dismal sales year. Taylor Swift may not be the ‘second coming,’ but she’s definitely something. 1989 spends its third week atop the Billboard 200 Albums chart, selling a respectable 312,000 copies. If you’re keeping score, that means that Swift’s 1989 sits at two million copies sold in just three weeks.

Foo Fighters couldn’t beat Ms. Swift and didn’t even come that close. Foo Fighters sold soundly, moving 190,000 copies of Sonic Highways, good for a #2 bow. Pink Floyd...

 A Grown Up Nick Jonas Delivers An Enjoyable, Edgy Solo Effort O
“Another one bites the dust” – another schmaltzy, bubblegum, wholesome teen-pop star. May the deceased teen-pop heartthrob rest in peace. From being the skinny front man of one of teen-pop’s biggest bands, Nick Jonas has done the Miley Cyrus – Well not quite to that extent. What Jonas has done, is shed his teeny past in favor of more grown and sexy, urban-infused pop on his second solo album, Nick Jonas. The results are surprisingly delicious, and generally ‘well seasoned’ too!

“Chains,” the first single issues from Nick Jonas, served as the introductory taste of a more mature-sound...

Nick Jonas Shows Newfound Maturity On 'Chains'

July 31st, 2014 7:00pm EDT
Nick Jonas, Chains © Island
Honestly, teen-pop can be a turn off. Maybe it’s the fact that if you aren't a teenager, teen-pop comes over as too innocent and sugary sweet. Maybe also it’s the culture where the suggestiveness of teen-pop has become so supplanted by explicit references that the corniness of the sub-genre grows exponentially. That said, Nick Jonas is no longer a teen and that über-annoying, albeit successful pop band The Jonas Brothers, are no more.

Nick Jonas is nearly 22 years old (September 16 for those keeping track), and while he hasn’t exactly shed the good boy persona embodied by The Jonas B...
