Melanie C Takes a Jab at Reality Shows
Former Spice Girls star Melanie C has criticized TV singing contests for encouraging fame hungry wannabes instead of nurturing raw talent. The singer rose to global superstardom alongside Victoria Adams, Emma Bunton, Melanie Brown and Geri Halliwell with the girl group in the 1990s.
Chisholm insists new artists are now "overexposed" thanks to shows such as Simon Cowell's "American Idol" and "The X Factor" - and she's blaming fast track talent programs for affecting the quality of music coming out of the industry.
She tells Britain's Daily Express, "Culture has changed and celebrities are famous for being famous which is such a shame. The music industry has changed so much over the years with digital downloading."
"Shows such as The X Factor on TV are a great medium to get people noticed - it's a really big promotion but I think sometimes musically the industry suffers because people are overexposed and their music isn't as great as it could and should be. There are some very talented artists who unfortunately don't get great tracks."
