Thoughts on Fame and Mainstream Art

with one comment

It works the other way around too. People aspire not to be rich or famous. A dream is a dream. It is not always Hollywood, fame and glamour that defines a valuable dream. Mainstream art being the only worthwhile art is bullshit. It is not the only art that exist and that is good. Anyone can appreciate Hamilton. Have you ever dared to see the skin and bones of theater? Or do you just appreciate what is popular? Do you only see beauty in the photoshopped, airbrushed and in the industry created standards of beauty? 

I’ve put off acting at many times during my life to raise children, purse higher education, take care of a home, a family, travel, live abroad or work a 9-5 job. But I have always known what my calling is. The arts are my world.

But I am so grateful that I took the time that I did. I did many other things. The time that I’ve taken to be a human being and not create has enabled me to become a better performer. I know what it is to be a waitress, a promo model, a career oriented woman, a mom, a student, a teacher, a friend, a party animal and now a woman in recovery. 

The other day someone said you’ll be discovered. And I said: “I am discovered.” I know who I am. I am already exactly who I want to be right now at this very moment. Money and fame are not a purpose. The purpose is happiness and doing God’s work. I didn’t choose to be an artist, art chose me to be its vessel.

If you think that I suck, that is what you see. I’m not here to influence your interpretation of my gift. I am just humbly here to share it with you. I don’t need to be discovered. I don’t need fame and fortune. I am famous in my fathers’ eyes. I’ve already made it. I am famous and fortunate. I get ignored because I’m too fucking real in this fake ass world of followers.

I don’t wait for the phone to ring to be called to perform. I make art every day. And once in a while I choose to share it with others. When you look at art what you see doesn’t come from me it comes from YOU. No one in this world is talentless. We are all gifted. I’m sorry if you see that in yourself. Pray and God will answer. 🎟 

When I post a retarded ass videos of me dancing CHOOSING not to use any technique at all. I do it to inspire others who want to dance so bad but don’t dare because they are too concern about how they look. You’re denying your birth right to move to the beat of a drum (which in essence is the primordial mimic of the human heart beat) because you didn’t take ballet classes. They think without technique they can’t express themselves. I’m here to tell you to be you. 

All these celebrities mentioned in the following YouTube video quit acting because they didn’t want fame to define them as a person.

I’ve been avoiding fame because I don’t want fake ass love. I’ve turned down reality tv shows offers because I don’t consider it art. I never wanted to be rich or famous. I’ve just wanted to express myself. Fame sometimes steals the joy of self expression. That’s why the above referenced actors quit. Once famous, people can no longer express themselves freely without being subjected to the opinions of naysayers. 

Note to haters: SHUT THE FUCK UP. I’ll dab on all you haters. Get on your knees and pray then meditate. Ask God to remove your negativity.

Get up, turn the music on and go dance; don’t look in the mirror. Put your phone down and go write something. Follow your dreams and stop trying to stop others from living theirs. Oh yeah and LOVE. Don’t be afraid. Love so fucking hard you’ll make them run and then love some more. You’re lifting spirits that’s why they ghost you. Love them anyway. But most importantly connect to your higher power and put God first. God is everything.
