Singers-- selling their bodies?
Do the infamous singers have to sell their bodies? I want to know... My mom and my brother keeps saying that you'd be FORCED to sell your body if you are under a contract and if you aren't famous enough to make a lot of money... Can you please explain what happens to singers who aren't famous and what the company does to them if they are not even famous? Thanks.

I'm not exactly sure what this has to do with "Japan", but perhaps you're referring to a specific Japanese artist?

Usually, if you aren't "famous" enough to "make enough money", a record label will drop you after the termination of the contract. "Selling off" one's body is more an act of desperation on the side of the artist, rather than the record company ~ so it's not as if the record company "forces" an artist to "sell off" their body, per se. Though of course, no one can either prove nor disprove these kinds of activities, it's the product of gossip and tabloid talk. It's really up to you to decide whether or not you think a certain artist took sketchy methods to remain where they're at, but as far as how the industry works, it's either sell or get dropped.

It depends to what audience this singer has. Selling his/her body would most likely appear in mainstream, while not as common in more underground acts. Also the label would just drop the artist if they aren't selling enough records because they aren't famous enough.

Infamous =/= not famous. You can be infamous and very famous. Being famous is actually a part of the definition of infamous.

I don't know what your mom and brother mean by "sell your body". If you mean dress sexy, then yes that's usually what pop singers do. If you mean literally whoring yourself, no.

As far as what a company does with a singer who's not famous... in the US they get dropped from their label and probably never heard from again. If they had a small buy loyal following they might get picked up by a small label and have some sort of career as a small artist.

i can't believe any one would make such an ignorant comment.

some male and female artist resort to paying favors with their bodies in order to advance their careers but thats only a very small percentage.

you all can't just speak nonsense and generalize everything. thats called racial profiling, stereotyping and prejudice.


and as a matter of fact happens a lot more in the USA, Canada and most European countries than in ASIA in general.

so before you make a stupid conjecture inform yourselves


if you are indeed 33 please go educate yourself.
if you are just a kid then learn to think before you write anything

By the way, about girls; I still didn't watched any chaste video of K-pop girl-band. As for boy-bands - I'm very positive, i like them, but girls are spoiling everything because of their disgusting filthy behavior, cause either every girl have no rights to reveal her body as if that was in ancient Greece. For boy's part, boys should bare their bodies (but they also have a limits, so as not to turn into porn-star.)

Alot of female artist in general do this. Male artists don't do it very much. They may bare a little bit of skin but female artists wear extremely revealing clothes. I know that they think that wearing skimpy clothes and dancing like a stripper will get them more fans but it really dosn't. It just gets antis and a few guys jacking off to them. Though asian artist are really not that bad. American artists are alot worse then them.
its about 80% of american female artist are like this and only 55% Asian female artists are like this.

oh yes i can definitely say now that you do THINK before you type.....
i would point out all the flaws your reasoning has but it would be worthless i doubt it would make you understand.

funny thing is you talk about moral but i doubt you even know what moral values really encompass or how they differ from culture to culture... so i'll leave it at that.... have fun talking about subjects you know nothing about to anyone willing to listen you all your fallacies.

I see you're very very very high moralled person that even you don't know the simple rules of good manners and etiquette. Knowledge is power, everything points to the fact that you have no knowledge (i see it by by your profile and the way you write). You can be professor, scientific, university graduate student but you have no true knowledge that is wisdom. Whom the gods would destroy, they first make mad.
A bully is always a coward. OK. Get out where you supposed to be gone. Go to hell because "whom the gods would destroy, they first make mad."
