I moved to New York when I was 16, thinking I'd become a big star, but now I know why it never happened for me...

    I wasn't a whore, and that's the bottomline.

    That's something you only learn once you're here and aiming for success. If you're not a whore (go-go dancer / stripper / escort or involved in sexual activity for money of some kind) you'll never make it to the top or become successful in the entertainment industry.

    At least I can say I kept my integrity all of these years, more than most can say in New York.

    My dear,
    its not easy to make it in this town, do you have any idea how many others come here with the same dream...I cant tell you how many cattle calls i'v been to and got cut after knowing i was clearly the better singer and dancer but with perseverence and drive i landed a job with a dance company known throughout the world...
    I surrounded myself with people doing what i want to do and be, baby i was at the state theatre and city center so much that i no longer had to pay for a ticket, they just told waved me in...[true story]... So dont give up and dont sleep around, just keep on keepin on.......icon_exclaim.gif
    Bon Chance....good luck...Merd..

    I tell this to all aspiring models and actors wanting to move to LA, NYC, and Miami to "make it big":
    Look at the population of these cities...do you really think they NEED someone from out of town? The agencies have plenty locals begging for work. If you're not from the area, you better be damn good and hot as fuck or you'll get laughed at as they say "try the next agency down the road, sorry." And they'll only be that nice if you're lucky. The most common form of rejection is "you need a stronger portfolio" which is code words for "you suck, go home."

    I don't believe you. And I'm not saying being a whore can't help to push you to the top, but I don't believe every "big star" got there by being a whore.

    Please leave Bello alone, there's nothing wrong with being confident like Bello is, he's a good person but u wont find that out if u dont get to know him

    Yup. Bello you are gorgeous, the problem is you know that. I hope to God you do make it big and become famous because if you don't you're going to have a REALLY tough time when you're older and your looks have faded. Your personality and vanity seem like you would be perfect for a reality show....so one can only hope it's an act for online.

    as someone who hasn't whored myself to the industry, i'm going to have to disagree. yes, luck and connections got me to where i am, but it wasn't getting on my knees.

    Do you think all celebrities slept their way to the top?
    What a retarded assumption.
    You obviously weren't talented/ambitious enough, or didn't have that "it" factor.

    I am sorry you see things like that but it is like saying "I'm not beautiful so I don't have a boy friend". If you are DRIVEN you will make it at 20 or 59 but you can only look at yourself and not others. I am in entertainment business and I have friends that have made it very BIG and other that have not but I can not blame others for what I have not achieved. If you walked into this world you know that things are not fair but you have to have A LOT OF CONFIDENCE IN YOURSELF TO KNOW THAT YOU WILL MAKE IT. If you keep looking at others then you will get loss and the shame in all of this is that you will show your profile. Get a backbone and concentrate on you and that you can do it. Never look at others it leaves a bitter taste in your mouth. I hope the best for you.

    Ain't no party like a bitter, resentful pity partaaaaay?

    Seriously, since clearly not everyone who's successful in big "entertainment media" cities got there by prostituting themselves, your suggestion otherwise pretty much comes off as "I didn't achieve what they did, so they must all be whores!" Instead of impugning everyone who's done better for themselves than you, have you considered developing your talent so that you can compete more effectively? Maybe you're just a small fish out of your depth in a HUGE pond.

    Agreed. That's not the situation here. I've said my peace on it though.

    I moved to Paris, left after two years, my brother moved to LA, now hes back in Europe...

    Id rather be a star back home, like I am now,... than try and leave home, if you cant make it at home, why try elsewhere?.. You can always try and get out global, but you gotta start local and go by word-of-mouth... at least, thats how I decided to do it

    Hard to admit it but success sometimes is pure dumbshit luck. Being somewhere on a certain day can make a difference for the rest of your life.
    I moved to NYC in the late 1960's for school and for seven years saw so many random occurrences both good and bad.

    I was 'lucky' and made something out of my life, others had one little mishap and threw in the towel.

    I guess its true, life isn't about what happens TO you, its how you deal with it

    What is he, like 22? Already airbrushing his photos at such a tender age. I saw that thread about his "doctored" photos. Apparently it has been taken down. I would not be so quick to call someone gorgeous until I see the real person up close without any airbrushing or alterations.
