[Blind Gossip] This very famous singer really wants to become an actor.
She doesn’t just want to be a “celebrity with a walk-on part” kind of actor. She wants to be a great, serious, Academy-Award-winning actor!
To that end, she’s been taking acting lessons.
It’s not going well.
She is just weirdly self-conscious and image-conscious. It’s like she is always “on stage”, hyper-aware of who she is, who’s watching, where the camera is, how she looks, etc. There’s no vulnerability there, just ego. It’s her dressed in a costume, reading lines and mugging for the camera. If you tell her not to mug, she goes wooden. She can’t just let go and become the character.
If I had to put her in some kind of acting gig, I’d put her on Broadway. She can work the stage and she can hit her marks and she can project, so it wouldn’t be a total disaster. Or maybe I’d make her a guest star in one of those bad sitcoms where she can mug for the camera. But serious TV or film? No.
That’s a shame… because we hear that she is aiming for a LEAD role in a SERIOUS film or TV series in 2017 or 2018!
Not Miley Cyrus… although our singer is also under 30.
