Thanks to the Creator/DisneyChannel, ''Series/AmericanIdol'', and ''TheXFactor'', this trope is also prevalent in the West, where it often overlaps with the TeenIdol.

* The British version of the show is ''TheXFactor'' (and before that, ''Pop Idol''), which, unlike most examples, does allow auditionees over the age of 25, which are included in their own category. Its most successful winners to date are Music/LeonaLewis and Music/LittleMix, though its biggest success story comes from Music/OneDirection.

* Rejet's idols are part of a trend - male idol unit anime and games are some of the most popular franchises in Japan. Besides [=PitaPro=], there's also Tsukiuta, B-Project, mobile games Idolish 7 and Ensemble Stars, and of course, ''VisualNovel/UtaNoPrincesama'', which started it all. These characters are somewhat meta-fictional, releasing music like live groups separate from their stories. Female idol series ''Anime/LoveLive'' is still hanging on, but ''Idolm@ster'', the other main girl-idol series, has started its own male line, appropriately called "Side M".

*** Creator/JennetteMcCurdy signed to a rival record label because she wanted to sing CountryMusic rather than getting pushed into a pop career. As a result, Nick won't let her sing on ''iCarly'' or promo her music. The closest she came to singing was rapping in an ''iCarly''/''Victorious'' {{crossover}}, and the closest they came to promoting her was a short excerpt from her first single when Jennette expected the entire song. It caused her to lash out on {{Twitter}} against Miranda and Victoria by retweeting and responding to people saying she was being screwed and was a better singer than the other two girls.

* ''VisualNovel/UtaNoPrincesama'' is probably one of the more triumphant examples of male idol singers, given that the series revolves around three different groups and is still going strong.

* Though she denies it, the classmates of Umino Masachika (from ''Manga/SatouKashiNoDanganWaUchinukenai'') correctly believe that she is the daughter of a male Idol of the same name. Her father was a famous TV Actor and musician, and his songs are used for popular commercial jingles.

** An anime-only case has five very famous women, and one of them is the IdolSinger and songwriter Harumi Fukatsu. She's one of the suspects of the case, even, when two of her fellow famous ladies (the top model Asuka Shibazaki and the oil painter Ema Anzai) are murdered. [[spoiler: She's a RedHerring, but she ''does'' have a personal connection to the case itself: the {{asshole victim}}s caused her best friend, Sakurako Suzuka, to commit suicide.]]
