This is a video I shot with my iPhone of Asher Roth answering a question about social media.
I was listening to the editor of Vibe magazine, Sarah Polonsky, run down a list of things the new age artists needs to do in order to have shot at success, and I had almost all of it done already. Haha. Like I said before Surreal :) We saw special guest, Big Boi of Outkast, kill it and set the tone for the incredible Janelle Monáe, who performed live at the Nokia Center (at LA Live) last Tuesday. The rest of the week was jam-packed with fashion bloggers, celebrity speakers like: Nick Cannon and Larry King, to Asher Roth and Chip the Ripper. They threw parties and had open bars where we did some really good networking, and made some legitimate contacts. During the seminars my mind was like a sponge, I soaked up all kinds of social media tips and information. But by far the highlight of this week, was meeting the one and only, Chip The Ripper. I love Chips' music and persona. Living in Hollywood, I'm so used to seeing celebs and really it's not something that normally moves me at all. But Chip the Ripper is from Ohio! so to see the real "OG" was like stupid motivating for me.
