Lessons from a poptastic red carpet.

Last night I worked the red carpet of a large pop music festival in Los Angeles. Beside befriending a few friendly cameramen and noshing on pretzels from backstage all evening, I realized the following...

* Reality 'stars' have officially outnumbered real ones.

* You don't need talent to get on stage in front of thousands anymore. You just need an attitude. And maybe a weird mannequin head that makes the press talk.

* A stadium full of teenagers screaming for Justin Bieber is just as loud as you might suspect.

* Baywatch started airing 2 decades ago. It's stars should probably retire from red carpets now if they haven't landed a role since.

* I am okay with being 'old' if today's reality TV stars are really who the 'young' folks have to look up to.

* America needs help.

I've been carrying around a weird mannequin head for months now. It's only making my neighbors talk.

I'm not sure what to tell you. Check for proper amount of bedazzling of the mannequin head. Make attempts to walk in high traffic places with said head. Etc. Etc. Keep at it. You'll likely land on stage soon enough.
