Brian Austin Green

Brian Austin Green is best known for playing geeky high school freshman David Silver on Aaron Spelling's Beverly Hills, 90210. (O.K., and for also being Mr. Megan Fox.) But did you know that for a while he was also a rapper? In 1996, Green briefly dropped his middle name and released a hip-hop album, One Stop Carnival. Around the same time, his 90210 character also started rapping. Green wrote all of Carnival's songs himself and recorded the album in his California home. So what did he think of his own album? As he told the Austin American-Statesman in 1996, "It's like when you do your answering-machine message and you say 'God, I sound weird." Yes, Brian. That's it. You sounded ... weird.
