What you can't see is that there are like thirty other people behind the three of them, and they're all over there and one of the crew brought me saline solution because I was so puffy and weird-looking and I come out of the audition room with tears streaming down my face and I'm completely red and everyone went into consolation mode and I'm all "No, I made it. I made it. I just got something stuck in my contact lens. Thanks for the confidence." I wish they had kept that part.
Pamie: Do you have any advice for other aspiring Popstars?
Jangela: Be wary of anyone that's going to promise you overnight success. If it's too good to be true, it probably is. In this business, you will hear more rejection than acceptance. But when the doors finally open, normally those are the good entries to go into. Don't be discouraged. I've definitely been discouraged. Once you find the motivation, stick with it. Someone out there is going to hear you if you keep pushing it.
Stay in school and make the money because it's not cheap to get into this business at all. I'm grateful that I have a brain on my shoulders or in my head because there are a lot of talented people out there, but talent can only take you so far. I just have this feeling that a lot of these girls will end up chasing a dream without a brain, and that's just not helpful at all.
I really did have a good time with it.
I don't know. I look at O-Town and they've got this number-one hit and they put you in this threshold that is hard to get into. Everyone's trying to work with them, but O-Town, they really suck and they don't have any artistic say-so. I'm really interested to see what type of music these girls are going to do. They've supposedly got Diane Warren on it, and I'm curious as to what she'll do for them. If they're singing a really good producer's stuff, it'll still sound crappy if they're crappy. These girls are working really hard, whoever they are, because they're putting out their first album the week of the final episode and they only started working in October. Whoever they are, they're working their asses off. But they're also doing what they want to do.
