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.
