Why I Work So Hard…It’s Not A Picnic

Still want to be a celebrity? Are you a hard worker. If you are not then you need not apply Acccording to a new report from MSNB,

“As a newer artist, RiRi is still hustling to establish herself,” says independent music and social media marketer Lisa Jenkins.  “Emerging pop artists understand that the more hits they have on the radio, the more love the fans will give them, and the better their career longevity will be.”

It’s a phenomenon that doesn’t necessarily translate to other music genres, such as country or rock, where bands are generally understood to have less competition and therefore, the thinking goes, more time to unspool their music.

MSNBC continued,

“In the pop music business, it’s standard for a new talent to work for at least three years straight before taking any kind of break–just to fend off all the other pop tartlets who want that same crown. In fact, three years is considered the standard for any emerging pop diva.

(Between her first solo release and her ascension to film stardom in Dreamgirls, Beyonce worked nearly nonstop for almost exactly three years. And there’s a reason why relative newcomer Lady Gaga nearly collapsed during a New Zealand performance last year; she’s been working like an animal since her debut studio album came out–less than three years ago.)”
