Biggest short lived entertainment careers

Andy Gibb. First 3 singles went to number one, two of which are still listed in billboards all time biggest singles charts.

Hit it big- summer 1977.

Career over- spring 1980.

Meghan Trainor

4 top 10 hits (including one #1) and a Grammy within the space of 2014-2016. And let's just say I can't imagine her getting any top 10 hits or Grammys again any time soon.

That fat Polynesian woman from "Hawaii", the only actress ever to get an Oscar nomination for her only screen appearance.

That's no way to talk about Bette Midler, R10. And she made many movies after that.

Kelly Osbourne. She did a remake of Papa Don't Preach which got a lot airplay, then that was it.

Now she's known for losing weight and coloring her hair.

anyone who continues touring and playing live gigs, whether it is Vegas, corporate gigs, gay pride parades or some county fair is not to be discounted. It is hard work and the fans remember.

r5 There seems to be a new Meghan Trainor every year. Is Lorde still happening? I think Billie Eyelash will be a flash in the pan too.

r21 here's hoping (with regard to Eyelash). i can't stand her heroin-induced mumbling vocals, so stupid.

Linda Hunt - she may have had plenty of work, but "The Year of Living Dangerously" was her only famous role.

R4 Suzanne Vega has had a long career but not a mainstream one. And thank goodness! I remember when I bought her first album in 1986 I thought she's amazing, her songs are unconventional, complex, achingly beautiful. Then "Luka" became a smash hit and I was disappointed. It's a good and catchy song. But I like "Marlene on the Wall" much much better. And all her other so not mainstream songs.

by Anonymousreply 2504/07/2021

hated Luka and Tom's Diner - but i liked Left of Center from the Pretty in Pink soundtrack - she also sang with Pat DiNizio on a cool jazz song In a Lonely Place on the Smithereens first album -

Christopher Cross was huge in 1980-81. Then nothing.

Gotye had one of the biggest hits in 2012. He hasn't released anything since then.

Jaye Davidson - He played substantial roles in just two (but very well-known) films and then gave up acting.

In his film debut he played the transgender woman in "The Crying Game" and got an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actor. His next role was the character Ra in "Stargate”.

Shortly thereafter, he retired from acting. He was averse to the fame and decided Hollywood wasn't for him. He supposedly never regretted his decision.
