Pop stars and movie stars pretty much get equal amounts of attention from both the media and the public, so of course, a few of them are going to go "Hey, I can do one of these things, so I must be able to do the other!"
While singers like Mark Wahlberg and David Bowie made some pretty successful transitions into Hollywood, these 10 pop stars made us all unanimously wonder what they were thinking.
Lance Bass - On The Line
While his *NSYNC bandmate Justin Timberlake has gone on to a reasonably successful acting career with movies like The Social Network and In Time, Lance Bass struck out immediately with this mess of a movie that pretty much everybody's already forgotten about.
Jessica Simpson - Dukes of Hazzard
People flocked to see her argue with her then-husband Nick Lachey on MTV, but when Jessica decided to flex her acting muscles as the iconic Daisy Duke, the result was a performance where the only thing people remember about it is her in tight jeans.
Britney Spears - Crossroads
During a time when Britney was the biggest thing on the charts and everybody was tripping over themselves to buy anything she was involved with, the singer starred in this musical road movie that pretty much has to be seen to be believed. I don't mean that in a positive way.
Prince - Under The Cherry Moon
To be fair, Prince did have a pretty big acting credit to his name for Purple Rain, but let's get real, that was basically a movie-length music video. The success of that led Warner Bros. to let him both direct and star in this infamous disaster, and he basically never acted again.
The movies just get worse from here, people...
