    I agree with Ignorant on this.

    Dont get me wrong, he can sing really good, but his success is from dancing and sex appeal.

    That was funny... you should consider a career in comedy.

    I didn't catch that piece... you know, I heard Confessions was a good album... I might peep that and give the kid another shot... most of my hate comes from the singles I heard by him.

    The doctor said I should cut my hate intake.

    yes, 'tis i ;)

    [funny] hilarious

    why is a man dumb for wanting to become a well-oiled lovemaking machine? how is it any dumber than sculpting your body purely for aesthetic reasons? working out period will help you get a better body, so why not add more kinesiological focus on sexual motion with hopes to make sex better for your partner and you, which gives an additional health benefit on top of the ones already received from working out period?

    i started working out to bolster on-field performance when i was athletically involved and now mainly work-out for health benefits with a slight desire for aesthetics

    endurance dance sessions, tantric sex meditations, resistance training with kinesiological focus paid to sexual motion, etc... all of these are extremely beneficial for ginuwine

    Here's the clip.

    He could easily be a standalone vocalist. The industry standard prohibits this though. John Legend is a lonely example of an artist who can do that in today's music business. Maybe Jaheim as well, but they're both old souls appealing to older audiences.

    Definitely listen to the album though.
    I think you might just change your mind.

    "Throwback" (produced by Just Blaze) is bananas...

    because he's short and ugly.

    sisqo was never a sex symbol, and people look at him as a gimmick artist cuz of thong song. there's no coming back for him.

    i'm not hating on Usher or anything, like i said he can sing, but that's not was selling his records. If it was all about vocal ability Brian McKnight would be going diamond each album.

    Touche.

    How would you describe Ginuwine's career inconsistencies?
    He was certainly a sex symbol and a talented dancer.

    Selling records isn't as static as you make it.

    You completely ignore the fact that Usher's a great performer...
    Which leads to more touring opportunities... Which drives record sales.

    Yeah he is a good performer but his performances are based off of his dancing. You think if he didnt dance and take off his shirt and drop his pants that he would still have as many women go out to see him as he does now?

    You just proved the point that his career is based off of dancing and sex appeal.

    I think Usher is a better vocalist than Ginuwine, although that's not saying much... but even still, many women consider Usher to be sexier than Ginuwine as well.

    Usher also has better songwriting, has better production and a huge label push... Usher and Outkast are the golden boys of LaFace records...

    Usher excels at what he does, but it still doesn't mean he's an outstanding vocalist... his considerable extra talents really, really help him.

    I've seen him in concert and I can't recall him doing either.
    He certainly plays to his sex appeal. As does any artist who has it.
    I don't think he relies on it though if that's what you're asking.

    Justin Timberlake isn't selling "over the top" sexuality and he still has a largely female fanbase.

    So I don't know that if Usher were never to take his shirt off that he wouldn't still have an insane number of female fans.

    Sure they do, but he isn't relying on them.
    Mary J. Blige is selling her sexuality, but she doesn't live and die by it.
    The same can be said of 2 dozen other artists. Why is Usher being penalized for playing up to his sexuality?

    This argument just doesn't hold much water.
    Usher has proven time and again that he could be a standalone vocalist.
    To expect that he should be in and industry that doesn't see much of that from artists under the age of 30 is unfair.

    If he sang the same exact songs but was fat and ugly would he sell half the records he has? The answer is no. Same with Justin Timberlake, if girls didnt think he was cute/sexy and if he couldnt dance would he be selling records? The answer is simply no.

    I simply don't see the value in this logic. You're oversimplifying...

    Would Jay-Z be as successful an artist if he were a woman?
    Does that mean his worth as an artist is based solely upon the fact that he has dangly parts? The answer is no.

    These aren't subtle variations to an artist's image.
    You're talking extremes right now.

    D'Angelo is no less talented now that he's not in "Untitled" form.

    D'angelo isnt any less talented, but his last album was flopping until he did "Untitled".

    But i'm done cuz i can see this argument is going nowhere.
