#MusicMonday: La La Land

Happy Monday!

This week I decided to share a song that, in my opinion, tells and shows how the entertainment industry can be.  That song is “La La Land” by Jax.

If you have never heard of Jax, you are probably living under a rock.  Seriously though,  she came in third place on last seasons American Idol.  Coming from New Jersey, she wowed the judges with her rendition of “I Want to Hold Your Hand” by the Beatles.  To no one’s surprise, the judge’s loved her and she headed on her way to Hollywood.  She seemed to breeze through every week on Idol thanks to amazing performances, as well as her fans, better known as  the JaxPack.

Jax wrote this catchy pop song about her time on the show and with the message that “everything ain’t always what it seems.”  While the show is a great thing to be on and has great exposure, it also comes with it’s negative pressures as well.

I agree with everything Jax sings about in this video.  The industry is not all glitz and glam.  Honestly, there is actually a lot more pressures that come with being in this business.  It can be very stressful and cause a lot of different emotions all at the same time. When you read or see something that claims to be true in an article, my advice is to take everything you see with a grain of salt because everything may just not be as it seems.  This is why I have said, and will forever say, that this business is not for the faint of heart. So enjoy this song and I dare you not to get it stuck in your head.

Speaking of American Idol, if you live in the U.S. be sure to watch this Thursday, yours truly will be in the audience.

  1. I grew up being told that I always had my head in the clouds. People would say, “You are in La La Land.” And it always seemed like they were saying that that was a bad thing! Today, it’s my greatest quality because I can use it to add value to the lives of others with my ideas 🙂 It’s how I live. #bloglife It is such an incredible way to experience life and then use it to create lasting change. I love that you are blogging about La La Land. Makes me really happy! Grateful to NOW be following you. With Joy and Peace, Zach from StrengthsLife.com

    1. Yeah AI has definetely had its up and down moments and seasons. But I will say that last year was one of the best. I got to meet and get to know a few of the contestants and I would consider them friends 😊

      1. Yeah, that wasn’t one of my favorite seasons either. You should check out some of the contestants from this year on YouTube. La-Porsha Ranae is very good as well as Trent Harmon, Mackenzie Bourg, Dalton Rappatoni and Tristan McIntosh

  2. Okay I wanted to report back with my thoughts on La-Porsha Ranae, Trent Harmon, Mackenzie Bourg, Dalton Rappatoni and Tristan McIntosh. They are all pretty good but my favorite is Mackenzie Bourg. Mackenzie has such a unique voice and I love that he writes as well as sings his own music. My second fave would have to be La-Porsha.
