Now, I can understand that being a trainee can take a few years depending on the person and how rough around the edges they are. I also understand that “idol age” is pretty young because they have to cater to a certain demographic but still, that’s discrimination. To be honest not all the idols are THAT talented. I could think of other people who might be better singers or actors.
I mean look at Susan Boyle. Great example of someone who went on a talent show and people laughed at her even before she started singing and the second she opened her mouth and that voice came out jaws dropped. I’m a big believe of you don’t have to be a size 0 and full of plastic to make it big in this business. You just need TALENT.
I might sound like I’m coming off a bit bitter but…ok, fuck it! Yes, I’m bitter! Lol I actually kinda sorta still have this “dream” of being a singer and making a name for myself. Obviously at the moment I don’t have the “idol” look but I think I have the vocal chops for it. So even if I did apply for YG or any entertainment company they wouldn’t even give me a second look the moment they see how old I am. I’m only 26! I’m not old!!!
I can’t believe I’m about to post this but…*sigh*, sometime last year I entered the MySpace karaoke contest. It was a contest going on where the winner got a chance to fly out to Tokyo and meet with Utada Hikaru herself. Needless to say I didn’t win but not a lot of people around me knew I could sing or anything so it was kinda a shock to them that I did this. So as embarrassing as this is (no really, I’m suppppper embarrassed at the moment) I’m going to post the video here. You can be real with me and tell me if I suck or not. Keep in mind that I put this crappy video together in like 10 minutes because I wanted to make the contest deadline so the audio levels aren’t right. Ok, ok, ok, enough BS…..here…you…go… *runs away and hides in corner*
