Vocal Profile...[edit]

This article needs a vocal profile...

is marquis houston really his brother ? w~i~k~i~l~u~v

he is his half brother PrincessOfHearts 22:47, 18 December 2006 (UTC)

No, this is an urban legend. --Yamla 23:22, 18 December 2006 (UTC)



Where is the source that he was born on 84? It doesnt make sense then that his album is named after his birthday as of 2006, he would be 22 not 21.

It could have been titled that because that was how old he was when we was working on it. Please provide a reliable source (not original research) indicating his birth year. --Yamla 20:06, 5 January 2007 (UTC)

uhmmmm well isnt marques houston his brother cause that what it says on his cd oh

Marques Houston aint his bro...jus read da page..and another thang he is 22 his album is name 21 BECAUSE he was actually 21 when he made the album! its 2007 not 2006 dont ya think his b'day has already passed?!!

Omarion's actual age[edit]

You all are saying that Omarion is 22. He's not 22, he is 21. That is why he named his album 21! Only a FOOL would think he is 22! So the date his birthday is that you have is dead WRONG!! Thank you very much!- {NAMELESS}


Actually, he said he was 22 when he was invited on 106&Park for the video release of "Ice Box" . I am sure we get that taping from youtube Superstar 11 February 2007(UTC)

its all the website telling us things cause 1 website said that he was born in 1984 and another in 1985 whichy one is it.also the websites are saying that marques houston is his cousin , half brother or brother and some r saying they r not even related at all magla

the ignoramus who said he is currently 21 is sooooo wrong. omarion is 22 presently, and the album is called "21" because at the time he was 21, and he also wanted to make a statement about the age of 21. that it's sumthing new and different and shares his own experiences. Oh yh he was born in 1984. do tha math. ~L1L M!z LyriK@L~ aka DC(=daring child) aka Kirah 16:48, 12th april 2007.

This is why we require reliable citations for disputed information. --Yamla 19:03, 26 March 2007 (UTC)

Well which one iz it Dam!!!! Please tell Netty

Netty Omarion was born in 1984 and he is 22...yall jus man i don kno..=] Pretty Ricky aint breakin up yall! yay!! Tam` Tam` =] 02:33, 3 April 2007 (UTC)

Prayer[edit]

worldwide, omarion is most widely known for asking people to pray for him when he (and about 10 million other people) was in the same city as a small bomb that went off. where's the mention in the wiki? that's like an article on george washington that doesn't mention that he was president of the usa. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 70.139.127.53 (talk) 17:40, 28 January 2008 (UTC)

The only reason anyone over the age of 12 knows who he is is because of his Pray for me press release. And even that is clouded in controversy as the PR representative was either fired because of this release or before depending on which story you believe.

With all the recent stories, it is apparent that Wiki's integrity is in question. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 76.104.22.73 (talk) 05:48, 16 March 2008 (UTC)


I had to go to urban dictionary to find out that the Omarion from "Pray for Omarion" was indeed this Omarion.... Seems someone's claim to fame ought to be part of the wiki-article about them... 134.161.227.84 (talk) 21:15, 28 March 2008 (UTC)

London bombings 7/7/2005[edit]

It was reported by Reuters that Omarion was in London when the bombs went off (killing 52 and injuring over 700 more) - Omarion was nowhere near the attacks at the time but said he had suffered 'no inconvenience' and asked for fans to pray for him, a stunning piece of callous self-regard if true. Omarion's people deny this: [1]. The phrase *prays for Omarion* appears regularly on British website Popbitch whenever a popstar says or does anything particularly stupid and self-regarding, over-inflating their own importance at the expense of others, and has become an internet meme. It is the only way he is known in the UK. No-one's heard his music here. Jasper33 (talk) 16:11, 30 July 2008 (UTC)

The only reason he is known is because he asked for people to pray for him after several victims were actually hurt or killed by a bomb. There was also an interesting backlash in which he blamed a renegade and recently fired publicist for the comments. This should be in the article, though Wiki has losts its backbone. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 75.144.35.164 (talk) 14:34, 5 August 2008 (UTC)

Agreed, this is the only reason many have ever heard of the guy. 74.7.138.54 (talk) 15:55, 16 March 2010 (UTC)

Accurate Pic[edit]

This page could use an accurate pic of him..becuz ppl who come on the page and have no clue what he looks like without clicking the links..=] Pretty Ricky aint breakin up yall! yay!! Tam` Tam` =] 06:22, 7 April 2007 (UTC)

Sexuality[edit]

Singer Omarion has come out as Bisexual apparently. It's been added to his page. I believe this press release is the source they must have read Press release ... Is it reliable? It needs citing any how I guess until someone makes the decision, he is quoted as identifing with the label.RAIN..the..ONE HOTLINE 23:26, 8 January 2011 (UTC)

The website hosting the press release does not appear to be WP:RS. We have to wait until the news is picked up by the mainstream media per WP:BLP. Dr.K. λogosπraxis 00:17, 9 January 2011 (UTC)
That's what I thought, but not being familiar with all the press agengies beyond the widley used PA, I wasn't too sure.RAIN..the..ONE HOTLINE 00:36, 9 January 2011 (UTC)
That's to be expected. There are too many news outlets, Wordpress websites, blogs etc. Recognising the reliable sources is sometimes difficult, especially in the early stages of a news release. Dr.K. λogosπraxis 00:50, 9 January 2011 (UTC)
He stated that the rumors were false. Hours ago, although only minor websites are picking up this rumor. AJona1992 (talk) 04:12, 9 January 2011 (UTC)
Thank you. It is good to know. This reinforces my belief in following WP:RS and WP:BLP in these cases. Dr.K. λogosπraxis 04:19, 9 January 2011 (UTC)
You're welcome, however though, if in time this false rumor spreads throughout news channel, the article should include the false accusation and it being widespread. But if not then we can just ignore it. AJona1992 (talk) 06:37, 9 January 2011 (UTC)

The smooth harmony singing that formed an integral part of the band B2K, helped him establish a solo career.[edit]

This sentence structure and wording makes no sense. --p4 (talk) 07:37, 27 January 2012 (UTC)p4poetic
