Beyonce Knowles keeps her acting career afloat with dodgy stalker drama Obsessed, which arrives today.
She’s definitely not the first former girl band member to strut her stuff on screen, and she’s had more luck than most.
Here are a few of the ladies who turned up in some decidedly mixed movies…
The Film: Freddy Vs Jason (2003)
The Girl: Kelly Rowland
The Band: Destiny’s Child, the same warbling group that gave the world Beyonce.
Destiny’s Child has a long and somewhat chequered history, from a difficult birth in the early 1990s, a string of different line-ups and names and their first real success under the Destiny’s moniker in 1996.
They’d go on to create five hit albums, have plenty of top-selling singles, but never quite escaped the in-fighting and problems, going on hiatus in 2002, before returning for a final album, Destiny Fulfilled in 2005.
The Ugly: Rowlands played one of the luckless teens that happen to get in the middle of trouble between Jason Voorhees and Freddy Krueger.
Let’s face it, everyone was focused on the horror icons meeting for the first time and never really paid much attention to who was dying.
Plus, did she really think her Destiny’s fans wanted to see her brutally murderlised by Jason?
