“I can if they can.”


entertainers

An entertainer is a very broad and ambiguous term for what we want to see in performance. Yet we have come to know entertainers in pop culture as people who are famous. Circus acts are entertainers, but how many of them are mainstream. No, no; I am referring to the famous faces we see on television and film.

And the question remains, who are they really? And why are we enamored with them. What is it about the fame aspect that makes us want to gravitate toward them? And also, what does it mean in regards to today?

anyone can be

In today’s society, anyone who can build a platform is considered an entertainer. It used to be you had to go out to Los Angeles in hopes of being discovered. Now, as long as you have computer access, you can be the entertainer. If you have a YouTube channel that you have built, now you can have your own channel/s and become the entertainer.

But are these people really entertainers or just merely individuals we watch until the next more popular famous faces come out with something great?

sustainability

Here is the key difference between the entertainers we see on the internet and the famous faces. The famous faces have built something that is truly sustainable. And as for the others, they tend to break down over time. Because a lot of them are not building anything that is based in lasting. They have had a hit video that stood out, some stroke of luck.

Now all of a sudden we look to them like they’ve done all these great things. In reality, they are just window dressing; filling in for the next project of the bigger acts we know and love.

“Dare to be different.”


differentiating

In our society today, you see so much entertainment that is based around so many people sounding the same and looking the same. How do you know one person from the other. Everything you turn on is just the same as the next thing. So in a world, where I myself am an artist, it seems that you have to be sometimes the norm to be relevant; but do you?

the pack

What if I dare to be different as most would say. Does that mean I will be seen for certain? Because in the entertainment world, people want their success right now. So when they see another person’s formula working, they run with that. But it’s not you, you’re the rest of the pack. Find your voice and stick to it, but that it easier said than done.

programming

There are so many different ways to standout from the pack and not get caught up in what else is being done in entertainment. But we become so disillusioned by what is hot right at this moment, we are in a trance until it’s too late. cinema, dark, displayIt’s why you are supposed to exercise your creativity like any other muscle in your human body. I think this is the reason when it comes to entertainment, I try my best to not get caught up too much into what is hot. Because what is hot is always getting replaced. So stick to your guns and keep at it.
