two sides of the pop industry

Often you’ll find the media or people in general portraying two facets of the modern muso: “winner” or “loser”. You’ve either got to be super successful, making millions, wining and dining with top celebrities or you’re out there on the street, hustling to get noticed by industry executives and you’re dirt poor (or just washed up).
Wouldn’t it be good if you could just cross over from one to the other by getting a haircut?

Hopefully, this concept is all just a complete distortion of the truth, and really, it’s about the music, man. Whether you’re full time or not, if there are people that dig your music, then surely that’s what matters.

I don’t know about the hip-hop industry, though. Does it mean that if you’re not Timbaland, then you’re not worth your salt? I hope that’s a misconception too. Or is that the pop industry  is closely related to the celebrity and hype industry?
