What is absolutely hillarious is that you've grouped together such differing celebrities.djedwardsmith wrote:Aye, I wish they'd given Alicia Dixon, Mel B, Leona Lewis, Kelly Holmes and Denise Lewis more exposure over the past 10 years, I'm really annoyed that they've not been well recieved by the public purely because of their skin colour.UKMusicLova wrote:I hate to bring race and sex into it, but black women get it worse than any other social group.

Absolutely hilarious the lengths some of you in here are going to in trying to find reasons for her not being liked.
Kelly Holmes and Denise are sports stars; they earn their achievements on the track, the media has hardly anything to do with their career. Fail 1.
Mel B was part of a mixed race (4 white and 1 black) girl group. What was her nickname? Scary. When she went solo she had the initial hype from the group and then look what happened. Her songs were just as good as her contemporaries arguably. Fail 2
Alicia Dixon has had an amazing solo career hasn't she I love the girl but you are blind not to see the stigma on her career, whilst she's on these shows receiving high publicity, she can't get a massive solo hit single.She is primarily a singer after all. Fail 3
I won't get into why Leona is different from Alexandra, although anyone with eyes and ears can understand who fits the stereotype and who doesn't.
