RockStar Academy
Mar 2, 2011 - by Meena

Recently I had the opportunity to guest star on the television show, RockStar Academy, Road to Becoming a Rock Star. Adam H. Hurstfield, Co-Founder and Executive Vice President of RockSTAR Music Corp. is just one of the judges for this reality show. Without giving too much away, this super slick reality series is packed with celebrities and guest stars. Almost everything is captured as camera crews follow seven of the next up and coming singers as they attend a RockStar school "RSA ACADEMY". And yes, anytime you combine ambition with competition AND a camera crew, you will find nothing but pure entertainment!

In this upbeat reality show I offer media training to each of the seven contestants. What I ask tough uncomfortable questions (the ones that we all think about, but probably would never ask) and rate how well they answer under pressure. For instance, I had asked one of the female contestant's “are your breasts real?” Some of the contestants handled themselves very well, but there were a few that felt the pressure and had a difficult time answering.

This crash course media training exercise was hilarious! I felt as though we were filming an episode of "punked" (and I was Ashton Kutcher). This was an excellent training course for each of the contestants to better learn how to interact with media, and how to dodge those embarrassing questions.

After a full day on set I really got to know more about the 2009 Juno Award nominee Elise Estrada. You'd be surprised at all the things celebrities will tell you once all cameras, microphones, and note pads are gone. Elise told me that she has never been asked an uncomfortable question. I'm thinking she just doesn't get uncomfortable about many things. Rock On Elise!

You can catch all the excitement that goes on at the RockStar Academy every Sunday night on KVOS.
