America’s Next Top Model: CW Networks CRAP and AWESOMENESSPosted: February 1, 2011
It seems that there are a lot of “lady topics” coming up lately, huh? Well, I AM married and those topics are relevant topics to talk about as well.
So America’s Next Top Model was being watched in my home. -Ok, fine. I was watching it one lovely morning while eating breakfast with my wife-and there are two things that bothered the freak out of me.
Thing #1: There is a Modern Orthodox Jewish girl on the show and there is a conflict
Thing #2: There is a girl on the show with issues about cutting her hair.
Ok, so there always seems to be a girl on the show that has issues with cutting her hair. Here’s my issue though. I understand that she chose to be there and that that is what happens and that’s what the “industry demands” blah blah blah.
Isn’t there a song by some girl singing about, “Blah blah blah?” She was singing about this.
These girls are slaves of the industry and Tyra Banks and everyone else is looking at them as if they’re the idiots because they don’t conform to the ways of the industry.
How about this ladies, look at THEM like they’re the idiots the next time they ask you to do something that you don’t feel comfortable doing.
Here’s the thing.
Oh, by the way, this is the same thing that drove me crazy with the Orthodox Jewish girl. It’s her own decision but here is my point. They asked her if she observed the Shabbat (Jewish Sabbath day), which is from Friday night to Saturday night. She said, yes. They then told her that these models work every day, is that a problem? She then said that she could do that.
Ladies, gents, anyone in the industry. YOU make the industry, don’t let it make you. Don’t just let them slap you around and make you feel like an idiot because you want to be you. I understand that part where you play the game until you’re “big enough” to change the game but if you aren’t who you are now you’ll find yourself being a slave and complacent by the time you are big enough. Take a look at Tyler Perry. He created his own way of doing things from the start because the system just wasn’t for him.
This post is for everyone in the acting, modeling, and entertainment industry. I’m telling you to be you and to not be ashamed about it and don’t apologize. Someone can say, “yeah well, where did that get you?” I’d respond with I’m producing my own magic with two separate companies and working on this one as we speak. The big part of this process is figuring out what I want and what I feel like I can do without getting bored.
I’m also working on a $70 Million dollar film script that is going to be one of the masterpieces of my life, if G-d blesses.
So. If you need some support or you want to tell me your story please leave your message below. This is a big problem and is causing a lot of people to hate themselves later on because it just doesn’t work out the way you thought it would. One of the girls on the show got sent home after getting her hair cut off. Her point was that she went through all of that pain and then went home.
It’s a growing experience for her but…
