Not As Easy As it Seems
I know it's been forever since my last post and I'm so sorry..if anyone actually reads my blog that is. Lately I've been hearing something a lot that's actually been bothering me. "You're famous" or "You're a celebrity". Usually people would be flattered, but I'm really not. I don't feel as though I'm deserving enough of being labeled as "famous" or being considered a "celebrity" To me I think of Miss Pooja or Neeru Bajwa or someone when I think of the word celebrity. Yes, I have met artists and influential figures in the industry but that's not why I do what I do. I have chosen this career path to give people some positive role models to look up to. If it was for the popularity I don't think that I would be doing my job for the right reasons.
In this field, and even in general, many people come and go from your life according to their benefit or selfish motives. You'll eventually learn how to spot your true friends from your fake ones. I've met many people who have pretended to be my friend when they needed me to promote an event or play their song on my show, but this is why I keep things strictly professional. No matter how close you are to me, I will always follow protocol. Sorry to say this but if your song absolutely sucks, I will give you constructive criticism and a reason as to why I can not play your song whether you like it or not. In the end it's to the benefit of both of us. I will not play bad music on my show and you will get some honest feedback to improve your skills. When you have improved, I will gladly play your music. Actually, I would come and ask you myself to send me your new track to play on my show. Some people take this the wrong way saying I'm stuck up or conceited, but I actually wish I was. If I was conceited I would be able to be a bitch to people who have done me wrong in the past but for some reason I have never been able to do that. I still have such a long way to go before I'm "famous" it's not even funny. So when people tell me that I'm a celebrity I can't help but laugh in their faces. I'm so blessed to have many amazing opportunities come my way and many amazing supporters so I do appreciate every single one of you, but please don't try to gas me up before I even make it anywhere haha. My duty is first to be a sevadar to the community and then comes my role as an RJ and host.
I also want to mention the fact that people say I'm "so lucky" to be meeting some of the people I meet. No doubt, I am truly blessed, but it's not easy. I have worked tirelessly to make these meetings and interviews happen. They don't just come to me. Trust me, my job is not by any means easy. At the end of the day I don't consider myself "lucky" persay, but I believe that I have done my job well and have been successful in completing a certain task. That doesn't mean I don't become completely star struck when I meet someone (after all, I am human) but in the end of the day work is work and I try to do my job to the best of my ability. Most of the celebrities I have met have become huge role models for me. (The humble and down to earth ones at least) have influenced me in a very positive way every time I meet them. Their passion, love and respect for the work they do remind me that this career path, just like any, is a struggle, but if you love what you do it makes things a lot easier and it makes life worth living.
