She hasn't started rapping yet, but rumor has it that former child star Amanda Bynes is going to be offered a record deal at a major hip hop label.
OK, OK... so she's not really an actress. But this famed socialite has proven that she can neither sing or act. Her 2006 single "Stars Are Blind" still makes us cringe!
J-Lo used her newfound stardom from starring in "Selena" back in 1997 in order to catapult her music career. She's actually done a pretty good job, but not everyone is convinced that she can sing.

And, unfortunately, the former "Nickelodeon" star isn't the only actor who's transferred over to the music world.
Jared Leto and Juliette Lewis both have had their own indie bands -- "30 Seconds to Mars" and "Juliette and the Licks," respectively -- showing they're just as passionate about music as acting.
Jennifer Lopez used her newfound fame from starring in "Selena" back in 1997 in order to break out in the music scene. And, though she's not really an actress, who can forget when famed socialite Paris Hilton attempted to transform into a pop star?
