And this is not new! The Monkees were a manufactured act that couldn't even play any instruments when they released their first "album."
But Milli Vanilli gets ridiculed to the point where their careers end and one of the guy winds up killing himself over it? Really?
Beyonce has a great set of pipes. Why all the focus on her?
Baffles me. People are crazy.
I’m not a fan of Beyondsay, but if we’re dissing lip-syncers, she’s just one in a looooooooooong line. And I never hear anybody complain about lip syncing in music videos.
