Many casting Agents say I should take Acting classes, but I have already taken several classes. Shold I take more?



Dear Nicole, you have to be carefull of Casting Agencies claiming you need additional services & for a fee you can use thier Acting Teacher/Photographer. But, you can do some Community Theater, take a Workshop, Student Films &/or Plays at Universities. There are many Actors/ Models that have never taken classes.Acting is a muscle that needs to be worked, so get out there & work it! Words from The Insider!

The Floacist

By: Honey Azul

We all know or have heard of Floetry with hits like, Floetic, Say Yes, Getting Late, Supastar and Lay Down. The Neo Soul duo from London was nominated for a total of five Grammy Awards and have sold over 864,000 just in the United States, alone. The group, Marsha Ambrosius (The Songstress) and Natalie Stewart (The Floacist) went their separate ways in 2007.

Known for her coco skin and long dreads Natalie looks just as stunning with her buzz cut. I had the great honor of chatting with her backstage after her performance at the Baltimore Natural Hair Care Expo. "Nothing made me cut my dreads, I just cut them. I love my locks, I didn't feel like sitting under the dyer for two hours waiting for them to dry. I will probably have locks again someday."

She preformed some old favorites but with fresh lyrics. She went on stage with a band just formed that day with no rehearsal, and killed it. Nicknaming the band The Moon Pool.

S ince, she has released her first solo project entitled "Floetic Soul".With hits, “Forever� with Musiq Soulchild, featureing heavyweight collabos with MC Lyte, Raheem Devaughn, and Lalah Hathaway. Get it now @

Nashville for The CMT Awards! By: Honey


A hot and muggy summer's afternoon when we arrived in Nashville TN, after driving over 20 hours. As we approached the festival the air reeked of honky-tonk & excitment. I hardly contain myself everywhere I turned there was a bar or corner thumping live perofrmance with excited fans lipping every word.

At 7pm sharp we was seated & going live on air. The arena was filed with thousands of voices cheering. Toby Keith & Kristen Bell hosted the event. Lady Antebellum opened the show, who later won for Group Video of the Year. Among winners was American Idoler's, Carrie Underwood & Scotty McCreery. After the ceremony the party didn't stop, the streets bright with lights from unlimited afterparties. We had the chance to interview several Independent Country Artists, you can see all the live action and exclusive interviews @ .
