3 Image Tips to Remember in the Music Business~ Thursday, Sep 23 2010 

When we think of our careers and where we want to go we rarely think of image as one of the keys to getting us there. However image can make or break a deal in the music or entertainment industry. In a perfect world it shouldn’t matter what you look like, or what you have but in reality it is all about having not only the talent but the right look at that time. Below are 3 image tips you should remember before stepping out into the entertainment industry.

Do your research: Yes, research on image, and style. Looking at the top leaders in your talent or industry will tell you what the audiences are responding to now. Additionally looking into the different career levels and their images will help you determine what helps with longevity after all that is the ultimate goal.

If you are planning to be singer and singing is your talent, no matter if you are male or female look at the artists that have reached platinum or higher and been in the field for 10-20 years. What makes them stand out from the crowd.

Analyze your current look: Take the time out to review your overall image. Determine what message you want to portray to your audience, and what feels comfortable. The truth is image is often the most difficult part of getting a new artist started. Why? Because you need to play to the audiences but you need to still be yourself while doing it!

Gather the opinions of outsiders: Taking the time to ask others what they think of your image and what they would change doesn’t make you look “bad, or inexperienced” and it will give you a unbiased opinion. The truth is we all think we look good in what we pick out but this isn’t all about you, it has to be about your fans as well.

Remember that though it is your image and expression it is also about how you want your audiences to perceive you and what they want in an artist. The entertainment industry has its corks but if you are truly serious about wanting it, you will take the extra steps needed to get there and listen to your constructive feedback with open ears and eyes!

Rihanna sat down with Diane Sawyer on ABC’s Good Morning America Thursday in her first TV interview since she was assaulted by Chris Brown (the entire interview airs Friday on 20/20). “So far in love. So unconditional that I went back. It’s humiliating to say this happened. To accept that? It’s a traumatizing experience.”

Rihanna says it was “humiliating” and “traumatizing” to admit the incident happened and that it was “wrong” of her to take Brown back.

“So far in love. So unconditional that I went back. It’s humiliating to say this happened. To accept that? It’s a traumatizing experience.”

During the interview, she confirmed that Brown, 20, held her in a headlock twice and bit her on the ear and fingers the night before the Grammys.

“I stayed. I even went back after he beat me, which was wrong,” Rihanna said. “But again … I’m a human being and people put me on a very unrealistic pedestal. And all these expectations, I’m not perfect.”

But the 21 year-old said she was motivated to leave Brown by the knowledge that young girls look up to her.

“When I realized that my selfish decision for love could result into some young girl getting killed, I could not be easy with that part,” she said in the interview.

“I couldn’t be held responsible for telling them, ‘Go back.’ Chris, even if Chris never hit me again, who’s to say that their boyfriend won’t,” she said.

Rihanna – who drops a new album, Rated R, Nov. 23 – said she wanted to speak out now to help others who may be in a similar situation.
