R&B singer and heartthrob Omarion already has a Grammy nomination for his first album "O" and ready to begin work on his second album, proving that there is life after a boy band.
"I'm feeling a lot of similarities with Michael Jackson, the greatest entertainer of all time. I feel like this is going to be the one," says Omarion, formerly of B2K. "'Off the Wall' was the album where Michael really stepped out on his own, coming from a group, and really established himself."
"And being at that same age (he just turned 21), I feel like this is the age where it's time for me to step up, better myself, be more responsible and get more involved."
Even though his album "O" went gold and was nominated for a Grammy for Best Contemporary R&B Album, Omarion feels like he could have been better. "I'm a perfectionist," he told Adam Graham of the Detroit Daily News. "I don't like to undersucceed; I want to oversucceed; I want to overachieve. I'm very hard on myself. I would say I did a very good job with 'O', but I want to do better. What I'm looking forward to is getting eight Grammy nominations."
Omarion is also getting into acting - he'll be making a horror film "Somebody Help Me" with Marques Houston and Chris Stokes that he says is in the vein of "Texas Chainsaw Massacre." The new film will be released next fall.
As for this winter, he is currently in the middle of the 8-city Holladay Jam tour with Bow Wow, Ciara, Trey Songz, Marques Houston , and Chris Brown.
