So, we all had heard about the so called "X-Factors" in entertainment industry. But what are people's concern when they mention this whole x-factor?
Well, first of all we have to see which part of entertainment we're talking about. Are we looking for stardom in music? Or as an actor? Or as a social media influencer? Or maybe anything else? All of this industry have a lot of requirements in common but certain qualities must be emphasized in each of the sub-industries in entertainment in order to make one as "star". Here we are going to have a breakdown of the most common must-have qualities.
Appearance. We are living in the "glass age", the era that no one and nothing is hidden. Anywhere you go, there are people and those people have cameras in their pockets and those cameras are connected to the internet, right? So, basically there always is a possibility of being seen by millions. As an artist in this era, you don't want to be seen with a bad hair or flip-flops isn't it? You don't want your fans -or potential fans- to see the worst version of you! It is always important to keep your appearance neat and presentable or at least matching with whatever your image as an artist would be. Always remember, you're being watched. Doesn't matter you're going for your friend's wedding or you're just going to the supermarket to buy milk. Bottom line is that you're being seen, and you must keep yourself maintained.
The unique selling points. This one is very important. Uniqueness is one factor that can create a world of difference for an artist. In fact, if you look at it, no "non-original" artist had ever made it big. The industry is filled with people from different backgrounds and different talents and almost any spot you'd think of, any angle you'd want to approach, is already taken by a big name. What would be your uniqueness? Why the producers and labels have to invest in you?
An artist is like a product and same as any other product, needs to have a unique selling point to sell and to attract the investors!
Attitude. Last but not least. Let's say you have all of these factors mentioned above. They'd be all completely useless if your attitude is not right! Be a good person okay?!
