The previous thread brought this to mind:

Who do you think is the biggest "no talent" who ever made it big in show business?

It could be any category: acting, singing, dancing, sports, magic, whatever.
I'm just talking the biggest no talent over all.

Who gets your vote? Sound off. Cast your gripes. Throw your stones.

Let's start with Billy Mays!

Martin Lawrence again. Can't act and his stand up sucks hard core. He isn't funny at all. As an added bonus I have heard he isn't very nice to people either.

Oh no...don't go dissing Britney. Now, I'm not saying she has talent or anything, but she was a legitimate cultural phenomenon. I still say, and will probably always say, that "Baby One More Time" is worth a doctoral dissertation. And Britney in fact DID have some influence on the video, at least.

Read this:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/...Baby_One_More_Time_(song)

It's worth a doctoral dissertation because it demonstrated a huge cultural change in the U.S. It may have not caused the change, but it reflects a definite change.

Not entirely. She has made literally MILLIONS without having any marketable talent. So she has a talent for something, right?

a talent for being birthed by rich parents, maybe...

Now if she was named "Paris HoJo's" I'm sure her life would have been a quite a bit different, no?

Billy Mays has talent, he can sell, he just doesn't know how to use a mic.

Oh, and I heard he died! I haven't fact checked though.

But Gaddy, she's made millions of her own. I read somewhere a year or two ago that she had made more than 100 million that year--that's more than Tiger Woods. How?

TV commercials and that stupid show she did, modeling, whatever. I'm not sure myself. But to cash in on being an "heiress" is not something every "heiress" has done.

Don't get me wrong. I can't hardly stand the sight of her. She makes me want to puke. That sex video that made her famous was the single most un-erotic "sex" video I've ever seen in my entire life.

GUY: come on, baby, let's *****
PARIS (in a squeeky mouse voice): do you love me?
GUY: show me your *****
PARIS (still in a stupid mouse voice): but do you love me?
GUY: ****, ****, ****
PARIS (apparently this stupid voice is her real voice): do you think I'm pretty?

I wanted to grab her, dress her, and send her to a parochial school with sadistic nuns who would slap her on the hands with a ruler until she lowered her voice an octave and shaved her head like Britney and started screaming that she was the Antichrist, which she most surely is.

But she DOES have a talent for milking the stupid media money making machine for all it's worth.

Like Madonna.

Lord Almighty, don't get me started on Madonna! Can't sing, can't dance, is as sexy as my recycling container, and has sold more albums than people with 50 times her talent and sex appeal.

Her cover of "American Pie" was perhaps the single lamest piece of music in the 20th century. I'd rather you tie me to a chair and force me to listen to that stupid flying purple people eater song 1,000 times than have to hear Madonna's version of "American Pie" ever again. And it doesn't suck so bad that it's fun to hear. It just sucks.

And speaking of un-erotic: how about that stupid book Madonna published several years ago? I'd rather look at a coffee table book of "State Fair Champion Pumpkins" than that stupid book.

As I said, don't get me started on Madonna.

When I was a cop we had a concert hall in town. EVERYONE came through.

Only reason I bring this up is Madona. This woman can dance, can sing and is an athlete. She did 4 hours woth of sound checks, she really does understand her medium.

Understand her show is lip synched. She does SO much dancing. Elton John actually got on her about it once.

She is a money making machine, she understand marketing. I may disagree with every word that comes out of her fake English accented mouth, but she does have talent.

Paris had a name to start with, but then again so did her sister. NOWHERE near as recognisable as Paris. So if it was ONLY the name, BOTH would have done what Paris did.

I think the habit is to lump in "no talent" with those we don't enjoy watching.

Britney Spears! Now there is a no talent, if they filtered her voice any more she'd be a robot.

About Paris Hilton (did you know her aunt is Kim Richards from Witch Mountain fame?). From what I understand she makes most of her money from a company that she owns that designs and sells purses and stuff like that. I don't understand purses and their prices at all but I guess hers are popular.
