Bestselling author Dan Brown’s ‘pale, balding’ looks stopped him from becoming the pop star he had always dreamed of being.

Brown, who moved to Los Angeles in the early 1990s hoping for a break with his Barry Manilow-style songs, before he became a famous author, said that his dreams of being a pop star were dashed when he realised that people didn’t want to see a “pale, balding geek shaking his booty”.

"Do I really look like someone cut out for MTV? The world isn't ready for a pale, balding geek shaking his booty - not a pretty picture," Contactmusic quoted him, as saying.
