Former Bros heart-throb Luke Goss has hit out at talent shows like Pop Idol
and Fame Academy because he fears they are "exploiting" young singers.
Luke, who hit the big time in the 1980s with his twin MATT, believes
record industry bosses like Simon Cowell fail to give the show's winners the
financial rewards he earned in his prime.
The WHEN WILL I BE FAMOUS? hitmaker fumes, "It's disgusting how little the
young pop stars are being paid these days. Record industry bosses are
exploiting young artists like never before. When I was in the charts I got a
say in everything, but
that doesn't happen anymore."
The shaven-headed hunk, who is now trying to forge a career in Hollywood,
adds, "Artists these days are swept up, milked for all their worth, and then
spat out within a year."
