    Celebrities are considered role models for the general public. They are gazed upon in adoration, and people take great notice of the things they do. Many people look up to those who are famous, and try to emulate the things they do in hopes of being like them. So, when celebrities do something that is not entirely positive, sadly, there will be those who follow suit and get on the bandwagon.

    Such is the case when it comes to alternative cigarettes. There have always been a huge number of famous people who smoke. Perhaps its something about the limelight that inspires them to crave the calming effects of nicotine. So, in the past year, celebrities have really gotten smart and started using electronic cigarettes, and many once notorious tobacco smokers, are publically bragging about their awesome e-cigarettes! We highly applaud their efforts because theyre setting such a great example of themselves for choosing so responsibly, a product that is so much better for their health as well as the environment. In addition, we think its awesome that theyre spreading the word about smokeless cigarettes, and how great they are. Sadly, however, there are still those in the spotlight who havent gotten the smoke-free memo. Here are the top five celebs who need to can the tobacco and grab a stylish e-cig:

    #5: Salma Hayak
    #4: Kristin Dunst
    #3: Kristin Stewart
    #2: Jessica Alba
    #1: President Barack Obama

    So, the Hollywood starlet probably come as no surprise, but as beautiful young women whose careers are stationed upon their beauty, they should understand that tobacco smoke ages the skin with its carcinogenic agents, as well as destroys internal organs by encouraging cancer! Neither of which are sexy, or cool. The number one on the list of celebs who need to switch to smokeless would have to be President Barack Obama. Is there anyone more looked up to than our president? Imagine how popular e-cigarettes would be if he were spotted with one of the fabulous electronic cigarette starter kits?

    It seems that today’s world starts and stops with the movements of Hollywood celebrities. Everywhere you turn, there’s some juicy piece of news about this movie star or that teen pop sensation. All their actions are publicized for the entire world to see. One recent Hollywood trend that has everyone talking is the cosmetic dentistry procedures quite a number of these celebrities have undergone.

    When you’re a public figure, people always expect to see you at your best. Every inch of you must be picture perfect, from the tips of your hair to the ends of your toes. It goes without saying that your teeth, which are often seen because of the number of photographers always begging for your smile, have to be in mint condition as well. This is the primary reason why most celebrities receive cosmetic dental treatments nowadays.

    These celebrities have a lot of influence with their fans. Indeed, celebrity followers show their support for their favorite idols not only by consuming the fruits of their idol’s labor, but also by copying their sense of fashion, mannerisms, and even life decisions. This is why it’s no surprise that a lot of people are opting to go the cosmetic dentistry route. Seeing its effects on their favorite Hollywood stars has convinced a lot of people.

    It’s also interesting to note that many young people nowadays go to their cosmetic dentist in LA to have corrective and enhancement procedures done. Research material about the subject has linked this trend with celebrity cosmetic dentistry. Because the younger generation is much more exposed to the media, they tend to imitate the celebrities they see there more often as well.

    This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, since there are several positive outcomes when a person goes to his or her cosmetic dentist in LA. Dental conditions are discovered and treated early while their confidence is boosted because their insecurities over their teeth’s appearance are solved. Cosmetic dentistry procedures are helpful in improving one’s emotional and social health.

    Some of the most common procedures that people ask their cosmetic dentist in LA about are teeth whitening, the use of veneers, and the straightening of crooked teeth. Correcting these condition all help improve one’s smile, and in turn, one’s self-esteem.

    Online, people are not going to be typing your name in the search engines to find you unless your a celebrity who as already made it. You must know how to strategically promote yourself.

    Here is how you can attract new fans.

    First, build a single page website. This website should be a single page website that serves one pupose, to get people to subscribe to your mailing list or fan club as most sites would call it.

    This web page should have a sample of your music. The page should also invite them to join your mailing list to get more samples of your work. 1-3 Full-length songs.

    Once they get on your mailing list, you can offer to sell them your full album at a discount. Make it a one-time-offer that is automatically presented new subscribers right after they opt-in to your mailing list.

    You should have an autoresponder mailing list in place that sends out a sequence of follow-up messages, so that your fans don’t forget who you are. You can simply share some background information with them, and other personal information that you don’t mind revealing.

    Sharing personal information helps to develop a relationship with your new fans, so that they begin to know, like, and trust you. Every time you release a new album you have an established fan base that you can email.

    The western world is obsessed with the cult of celebrity. It’s no longer good enough to aspire to be a sports star or a rock god: if you want recognition you now have to be classed as a celebrity. The public helps to perpetuate the myth by devouring celebrity news voraciously, and by aping celebrity behavior unashamedly. Still, there’s no need to be too disdainful or critical of this new cultural influence: sometimes it can actually be a force for good. It would appear from the newspapers and the weekly magazine that celebrities are increasingly turning to the electronic cigarette to get their nicotine fix, and that for us can only be good news. Maybe these celebrities are not as intellectually-challenged and one-dimensional as they painted to be.

    So which celebrity started the ball rolling and was the first to come out and openly use a smokeless cigarette in public? Well, that’s the $64,000 question. The time-frame is unclear. Some claim it was Katherine Heigl, or Izzy from Gray’s Anatomy as she’s better known: she swore her allegiance to the product when she smoked one publicly on the Letterman Show on live U.S.TV. Others argue that it was Charlie Sheen who publicly endorsed smokeless cigarettes. Sheen can rightly take credit for lots of things, but was he really the first to do it? The truth is we just don’t know. Celebrities on both sides of the Atlantic have been keen to switch to the safer smoking alternative, and frankly who can blame them?

    Joining the growing list of celebrity vapers have been Leonardo Di Caprio, Kevin Federline, ex-husband of Britney Spears and celebrity by default, Dennis Quaid, Lindsay Lohan, Eric Roberts, John Cusack and Johnny Depp. On this side of the pond we’ve seen our own celebrity vapers too: Kate Moss is partial to the occasional one, as are, Jimmy White, Matt Cardle, Catherine Zeta Jones and June Alexander. Rock and roll hasn’t escaped the draw of the product either. Ronnie Wood, Eddie Van Halen, Tom Petty and even Pete Docherty have been spotted taking a hit on smokeless cigarettes recently.

    Why is this important? Well, it’s important because to the best of our knowledge every one of these celebrities made the decision to switch to electronic cigarettes voluntarily because they acknowledged the fact that the product was safer and healthier for them. None of these celebrities was sponsored to promote a particular product. These celebrities have made positive choices, and have stopped using tobacco-based cigarettes because they are dangerous and can be lethal. If their behaviour persuades other tobacco smokers to make the switch, then that can only be a good thing.

    They are rich, they are famous and a lot of people want to be like them. Americans have always been obsessed with celebrities. Be it socialites like Paris Hilton, or actors like Johnny Depp, Tom Cruise, Angelina Jolie or entertainers like Madonna , Michael Jackson. Some love them, some hate them but one thing is for sure, you can not ignore them. They are like us – only better. They are rich, elegant, beautiful versions of us.

    So what makes these celebrities so special? Is it because they are rich, beautiful, and popular? Or is it because they have worked really hard to succeed in a competitive show biz? A possible reason for our obsession with celebrities may be that they are what we want to be. They are in news all the time. Even the smallest things they do have the potential to make it to the front page of the newspapers. United States is obsessed with celebrity couples and kids of famous celebrities. If Bradd Pitt and Angelina Jolie take their kids to modeling shoots with them, if becomes a breaking news. If we buy a particular product, many times we do it because of the celebrities who endorse them.

    Brands, big companies having realized our obsession with celebrities hire them to endorse their products. They pay millions to these celebs to endorse their products and it really sells! Thanks to our love, hate, madness for these celebrities, this makes them so popular and wanted. Our love and passion for these stars originates from the fact that they have it what it takes to get on the top. This is want we want to be, no matter which area of work we belong to. In simple words, Success is the magnet which attracts us towards them.

    We, the Americans are obsessed with celebrities, only because we are obsessed with success. The dreams of making it big attract us towards successful celebrities. The flashy lifestyles of these successful people, their physical appearance and charisma inspire and motivate us. Kids like to imitate their favorite actor’s on screen roles and elders like to copy their dressing style, clothes and fashionable accessories. The humans have always been curious about other people by nature and if those other individuals are successful celebrities, then it becomes an obsession.

    We are always obsessed with celebrities. Some of us consider them to be god. America is really obsessed with celebrities!

    Make up is not only the art of making up, but a process of sustaining good looks.- This quote provides an insight on what the world of a make-up artist is all about. A person who helps in keeping pace with aspects affecting a person’s looks is known as a makeup artist.

    Roles of a make-up artist include application of makeup & prosthetics related to all the fields of glamour viz events, movies, theatre, television, fashion, magazines, photography and other related occasions.

    Education

    The range of education related aspects required for being a make-up artist is quite huge. There are many colleges and universities which offer attractive courses and certification programs with specialization in this field. These courses involve a combination of manuals based learning added to practical training experiences. These courses range from 1 month tenure (which mostly involves direct training) to 1 year courses with the backdrop as theory based learning.

    How to Go about These Courses?

    After the 90s, various campuses started accommodating many advance training courses which could not be accommodated in degrees programs. Some of these courses were off-beat fields of learning, while most were advanced educational opportunities of upcoming fields of learning. One such off-beat course is the certification program in make-up artistry.

    Countries where the film industry is flourishing like India and United States have associations for make-up and other related fields.

    Career Scope

    The fields of films, television, modeling etc. offer lucrative pay packages. Make-up artists can become personal make-up artists for celebrities as well. In addition, they can open a studio of their own. The set-up is considered a major investment, hence it is seen that multiple makeup artists form a combined company or a label.

    The field of makeup artistry is one field where practical hands-on experience matters more than anything else.

    Income Scope

    Depending upon their clientele, some makeup artists earn more than performing celebrities, but the average income is decent for a makeup artist. Also, a makeup artist needs to be updated about the latest advancements in their field.

    Lastly, prospective clients view the concerned makeup artist as a display of what is being offered, so those folks who stay in shape and work on their looks, hairstyle, attire etc. earn well.

    A detailed knowledge of all the aspects related to careers, advice and scope of being a makeup artist will come via experience. But, any glamour based career blog or a university college directory will give you better insights.

    Popular painter Sarah-Jane Szikora has announced that she is using her artistic abilities to help dementia patients.

    The northern artist announced on her personal blog that she is currently involved in the initial stages of designing and refurbishing three dementia wards in Bradford teaching hospitals.

    Sarah-Jane said she hopes that her personal experience of dementia through her mother’s illness will help other people who are affected by the condition.

    She wrote in her blog: “Through art, I can also use the experience and hopefully turn it into something positive for others. We must always strive to see the brighter side of life amidst the darkness of living. Laughter, after all, is the best medicine.”

    The artist is spending less time on producing Sarah-Jane Szikora prints so that she can fully concentrate her efforts on the design and refurbishment project.

    Sarah-Jane has called for further investment from potential donors as the scheme is mainly funded by charity and only receives a small amount from the NHS.

    She added on her blog: “So what we lack in funds, we must try and make up for in creativity!”

    Sarah-Jane recently told the arts and culture journal Fally rag that she hopes that her light-hearted and humorous prints of giant gingerbread man and confectionary characters provide people with happiness.

    She told the publication: “The world doesn’t owe you happiness; you must earn it. Get on that journey of self-discovery and change something. Art helped me to be happy, so hopefully by offering my results, I can pass a little bit of that on.”

    Sarah-Jane said that she wanted to inspire human warmth and connection through her irreverent artwork as she does not want to add to the despair that some people already experience.

    “The world has seen enough misery without Tracy Emin’s dirty knickers thrown in,” she told Fally rag.

    Life drawing classes at the Cleveland College of Art inspired Szikora’s passion for illustrating the human body, which she has now evolved to create extreme comedy figures.

    People interested in viewing Sarah-Jane Szikora prints will be pleased to know that the artist said that she will soon be revealing the dates of some gallery events taking place in July.

    The artist also said on her blog that she had the pleasure of going to an exhibition in Newcastle which displayed Fabian Perez prints.

    Sarah-Jane Szikora prints have been displayed in Harrods, Selfridges and several important exhibitions across the United Kingdom.

    Q23

    VOICEOVER ARTIST SUCCESS SECRETS
    by David Kaye

    I’m David Kaye. Whenever I speak at or teach voice over classes or am interviewed about being a voiceover artist, sooner or later someone asks me, “What’s been the most surprising thing about having a career in voice overs?”

    There are many technical aspects of voice work — things like microphone placement, learning how to bring the copy off the page…and all the technical stuff you need to do to be successful behind the mic.

    But one of the biggest things is something I learned from a mentor of mine, Maurice Tobias. She folded her arms and said, “You know, you have got to take care of yourself. You have to look after your body. You don’t realize the pace in this industry.”

    You could be running around in the car all day, going from session to session. That is what you want; you want to be busy. But when you get busy, you must take care of yourself. That surprises people who think, “Well, wait a minute. It’s just standing behind a microphone.”

    Well, there is a pace you need to keep up. There is a mental pace, a physical pace. And if you are like me and like to stand the whole time, you are standing four to six hours a day.

    You’d better have an outlet. You’d better look after yourself. And I mean going to the gym and working out or being active or doing SOMETHING. It takes a lot of energy to do voiceovers fulltime.

    You may think I’m overemphasizing this, but think about it: If you are doing live taping or a lot of shows, your heart rate will just be zooming! And if you are in a situation where you need to do a live announce, or you are called upon to do some sort of voice over work, you are nervous. Your heart is banging away.

    And you are burning calories. Your body is going through stress. Five or six TV stations need you to get their stuff done right away. You are cranking it out. You’ve got to go.

    You are hopping into your car, your session is over in Santa Monica, and you’ve got to drive 30 miles to go someplace. Your heart rate is elevated and your body needs you to be able to take that pounding.

    That is a day in, day out thing. So it is important you eat well and to take care of yourself, to look after your body. That goes a long way toward making some of the long days bearable. It is one of the surprising things that people don’t think about. But for a voice acting professional, It is really important.
