What could be an explanation? You often hear that short people look better on camera. Another explanation for female singers could be the Tinker Bell Syndrome:
The believe that infantilising of small women can breed a sense of resentment and rebellion that makes them more ambitious and more flamboyant than average-sized females. ‘It’s likely that being small could result in a woman developing a Tinker Bell complex. Certainly it explains why we have so many famous examples of tiny women who are larger than life.’
