A friend of mine looks like a black butch lesbian (with a wholesome grin believe it or not). She wants to make pop music. I said go for it. Pop music needs SOME kind of interesting image/musical boost.
What say you all?
Well, they can always hire a Beyonce lookalike to do the videos and lipsynch at concerts.
Crack is whack!

Pop music needs some decent fucking songs. Who cares what she looks like?
You really think she's capable of 'interesting image/musical boost'?
What makes music popular a.k.a "pop" is that it appeals to the lowest-common denominator. That is why most pop music sucks.
Are you kidding? Only as a cult artist only. Blacks as a group are colorist hypocrites they embrace out gay men and closeted misogynists (hiphop) yet Queen Latifia is forced to stay in the closet.
Your friend needs to enjoy the coffeeshop circuit.
Isn't this called Alabama Shakes, and isn't it over now?
The music industry is awash is bad song writing. Anyone who can find and hook up with a good song writer, can make it to the top today. What's your competition, Adele?
She can make all the pop music she wants. Finding an audience is the tough part.
You are going to tell me Chaka Khan ever looked like a supermodel? Good songs will always get you chart success. (Chaka found Prince as her song writer, before Prince became really famous)
The Lesbian thing will have to go - DADT. Americans, en mass, are still extremely homophobic.
