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!

Top 3 Things To Perfect Before You Can Make it Big! Thursday, Sep 23 2010 

Dirget

For many of us our ultimate dream is to become a icon, a celebrity that everyone else wishes they could be. However before you start pushing for your dream there are a few things that you should have done when getting started.

Perfecting your Talent: While we all wish that we didn’t need any practice and it would just come to us, the reality is having talent and keeping it are two totally different things. It is important as with any form of talent whether its sports, dance, vocals, instrumentals, juggling, or whatever you must continue to practice and use it. Or else it may die out.

Perfecting Yourself: Whether its the big screen or the big stage you need to perfect your own image before you run to the for front. The words “First impressions” are there for a reason. It is important that you not only take pride in your image but keep it up everyday, you never know who you’ll meet or when you will meet them.

Perfecting Your Business: While your talent maybe singing you still need to know the ins and outs of the industry. In fact the more you know about the field or area you are going into the better off you will be. It’s like being a supervisor for a plant. If you don’t know what it is that each employee must do, how do you know they are doing it right or doing anything at all? Remember to educate yourself about everything you can. This will in sure that you are protected. After all who better to protect your interests than you!

Though we all want to make things happen right away, and are searching for the money in our field it is good business to be sure you have all your ducks in a row before you head in full force. Taking an extra 6 months-to a year should not be the end of the world after all you still have your whole life ahead of you.

If you think you are ready for the majors, and want to give it a try tune into Talent TV and let the world see for themselves! Log on and make your profile today www.venustalenttv.com

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.

“I sat down with kids and my husband and I really asked their permission,” she said. “I said ‘Listen, there was this show I’d love to do and it will be three months that you might not see Mommy a lot.’ And they’re looking at me like ‘Really? What does that mean?'”

Apparently her family approves of her new project and husband  Jada says Will Smith will be on the set helping out as a “ghost producer” helping structure her episodes, He also will be an extra in one of the episodes, so just see if you can catch him,” she said. “He’s walking by, doing a drive-by, and we could hardly afford that.

Los Angeles California- Carrie Prejean was stripped of her crown on Wednesday of this week. It was reported on AccessHollywood.com Carrie was fired from her role of Miss California. The Miss California Organization removed the controversial beauty queen from her post due to what they claimed were “contract violations including Ms. Prejean’s unwillingness to make appearances on behalf of the Miss California USA organization,” the group’s Executive Director, Keith Lewis, said in a statement.

Tami Farrell, Carrie’s runner-up and the former Miss Teen USA, has stepped into the role of Miss California and will be taking on her duties. Tami was previously Miss Malibu.

Carrie says that she felt the firing was due to her answer on the question of gay marriage.

Carrie said she believes marriage should be between a man and a woman, in response to a question about gay marriage from Perez Hilton. The blogger later claimed her comments cost her the national crown.

Then this Wednesday Carrie’s Crown was stripped from her

Less than a month later, semi-nude photos of Carrie surfaced online. While pageant rules prohibit nude photos of contestants, Miss Universe Organization owner Donald Trump allowed Carrie to keep her crown.
