Did you know that some of the big musicians in the industry like Lady Gaga, Madonna and Beyonce
were rejected by music labels at the beginnings of their musical careers. However, it can also be
the other way around. Astonishingly some successful Hollywood stars actually had the luxury of
turning down a record deal to focus on their acting career. Here are some names:
Robert Pattinson is actually selfish
Back in 2010, rumors had it that Robert Pattinson rejected an offer to sign with
Simon Cowell’s record label, Syco. Although he is an avid guitar player and has had two
of his songs featured on the ‘Twilight’ soundtrack, Rob apparently said no to Cowell because
he was convinced that no one would like his music. Pattinson claims that he’s selfish with his
music, only playing what he likes, and that just wouldn’t fit with the music
tycoon’s style of work.
Emily Blunt follows her heart
Did you know that Emily Blunt was into music? The British actress was offered a record deal
at the age of sixteen when a producer spotted her performing in a musical at the Edinburgh Festival.
But the night before she was about to sign the deal, she decided to pull out because her
heart wasn’t really in the music
Acting was always Zac Efron’s first priority
In 2006, Zac Efron shot to fame when he appeared in the TV film ‘High School Musical’.
The ratings hit the roof, and the soundtrack sold like hot cakes. However, sources revealed that
Efron’s vocal parts were actually performed by a Canadian artist, Drew Seeley. As a result, Zac had
to do his own singing for the follow-up, ‘High School Musical 2’. And guess what?
Zac’s performance granted the young actor a record deal by Simon Cowell. But instead of becoming
America’s next big pop star, Efron politely declined, choosing to focus on acting.
Gina Rodriguez turns down music tycoons
Award winning actress Gina Rodriguez had her big break in the hip-hop music drama ‘Filly Brown’;
Her portrayal of aspiring rapper (Majo Tonorio) caught the eye of several big music producers,
however, Rodriguez chose to focus on her acting career rather than turning her character’s dream
into her reality.
Do you think these stars should have proceeded with their music career? We agree that it would
have been great to listen to albums from these stars. However, no one can deny that they have been
building remarkable acting resumes. So probably they picked what is best for them.
Mo Salah to Become the First Ambassador for UN Instant Network Schools
Our iconic role model Mohamed Salah has been selected by the United Nations as the first Ambassador for Instant Network Schools, the program that grants refugee and host country students the chance to obtain high-quality online education.
The organization made the announcement on their official website and said that Salah will participate in the UNHCR program by taking part in school visits supported by the program. He will also help in raising awareness regarding the importance of quality education for refugee students.
The program invests in technology that brings the kids closer to the outside world and help them envision their future and plan it out.
There are currently 36 instant school communication networks in eight refugee camps in Kenya, Tanzania, the Democratic Republic of the Congo and South Sudan, according to the statement.
“I’m partnering with Vodafone Foundation and UNHCR to close the gap between the education available to refugees and their peers living in settled communities,” Salah said in a statement.
“Instant Network Schools is an important initiative that I am proud to represent, which is transforming learning for a generation of young people across sub-Saharan Africa and soon also in my home country, Egypt,” he added.
Quintin Tarantino is Finally Welcoming the Birth of his Child
All time favorite filmmaker, Quentin Tarantino finally welcomes being a father! Hurray! Daniella Pick, Quentin’s wife, went into labor on Saturday, February 22nd!
The happy couple are excited to announce the birth of their baby boy whose star sign is officially Pisces. Daniella broke the news to her husband in late August, and ever since, lovers have been preparing and getting ready for the day he’ll be born!
Model Daniella and Quentin met back in 2009. Yes, a long long time ago! They got officially engaged and tied the knot in 2018. We have no idea how Quintin was capable of directing his last ever movie Once Upon A Time in Hollywood while having a lot on his plate!
Regardless of that, Quintin has been treating his hubby very well and was taking care of her health so that the baby could be as healthy as possible! Their wedding was a small private ceremony where close friends and family had gathered to celebrate such a monumental moment!
The age gap between both lovers might be a bit big, but 21 years of difference between them hasn’t been an issue in their relationship! All that matters to them is that they’re in love and just had their first baby, you could imagine how stoked they are right now?
The director though opened up about how much he concentrates on his work. “When I’m doing a movie, I’m not doing anything else. It’s all about the movie. I don’t have a wife. I don’t have a kid. Nothing can get in my way. The whole world can go to hell and burst into flames. I don’t care. This is my life.”
Can you believe that the Golden Globe Winner believed that he would never get married or have a kid before he’s 60? Look at where he is today! Happily married and just had his first baby! People were hoping they’d name the child Quentin Junior.
Maybe the Kill Bill director had this all planned out. He’d mentioned previously that he only wanted to make 10 movies in his entire career, but when asked about why is he ending his career, he said that he’d rather make 10 movies that would leave a mark on people and stand out rather than simply do dozens! Which is why Tarantino fans are bummed out after releasing his last movie!
Congrats to the happy couple, we all truly hope that putting your family first after being a huge success in cinema is your happiest decision. I mean who knows, maybe Quintin’s son will turn out to have his father’s talent!
