Lewis Hamilton Update: F1 Driver Latest Athlete Who Wants Terrible Music Career [VIDEO]
Athletes and music don't mix. Unfortunately, Lewis Hamilton wants to become the latest to subject you to his.
"Music's been a huge passion of mine since I was really young," Hamilton told Charlie Rose on 60 Minutes. "I started playing guitar when I was thirteen.
"In here [the studio], I can be me. I can be vulnerable. I can show a side of me that people don't get to see."
Listening to snippets of "J'Adore" and "Lookin' at You," it's a side people should continue not seeing. Fortunately for Hamilton, he's not the first athlete to embarrass himself behind the microphone.
Shaquille O'Neal, Deion Sanders and a slew of others already beat him to the punch.
Shaq has a platinum album, but there's still no forgiving his 1993 release "Shoot Pass Slam." The chorus alone was enough to make you reconsider breathing.
"Do you want me to shoot it? No! Do you want me to pass it? No! Do you want me to slam it? Yeah!"
Must be the money that Sanders wasn't making from rap that kept him on the gridiron.
As humble a champion Manny Pacquiao was, one listen to "Sometimes When We Touch" is enough to want to knock him out like Juan Manuel Marquez.
Forget the his extra curriculars in Eagle, Colorado, Kobe Bryant should've been on trial for his 2000 release "K.O.B.E." featuring Tyra Banks.
