@NICKIMINAJ Shape-Shiftress?

THINK! How can you re-imagine and re-purpose your current state of affairs or existence in a way that could unlock the key to the doorway of your wildest dreams? Artist, promote thyself! Use the 'cult of personality' to make your mark on whatever it is you want to mark...

The powers, the people, behind Nicki Minaj took a scrappy rapper and refined her, re-imagined her, re-invented her into what has now become a pop icon, more recognizable than Madonna-clone Lady Gaga.

Nicki is a very fortunate woman. She was wise enough to accept and embrace the direction her team pointed her in! The publicity machine that built The House of Minaj should serve as a template, blueprint, model for anyone seeking fame: artists, bloggers, performers, authors, etc. etc. etc.
"Minaj didn’t make her name right away—she’s 29 now and spent the first years out of school waitressing at Red Lobster, working in customer service and trying to hustle up label interest with some bottom-feeder New York crews." ~ New York Magazine
Ya GOTTA have a plan! Whether you're trying to break into radio, or you're the author of a wonderful blog, or you're a cub reporter at a great metropolitan newspaper, the momentum lies within YOU (or if you're unaware, your publicist or agent!) If you feel like you've been spinning your wheels, stop your little world and get off! Analyze. Set up a game plan or strategy. Write down your goals --- on PAPER. (Remember Paper?)

Who is a MASTER of the craft you're trying to hone? Maybe you can't sit at that individual's feet, but you certainly can conduct searches online and request books at your local public library!

There's ALWAYS room at the top! ~ Adam Ant

Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
