A Day in The Life of a Superstar

This is a day in the life of a superstar (that I made up) named Sheirra Mongolas McCarty.


1. Me~

“Sheirra, what inspired you to become a singer and actor?”, “How was your childhood like?”, “When did you and Drake meet?”, “Are you going to be recording a new album soon?”, “What is the character of your upcoming role in the movie in the making, ‘Lies’?”, “Is the rumour true? Are you pregnant?”...

            I can’t handle all this. The rumours, the questions, the invasion of privacy. I can barely even see with all the cameras flashing. Yep, I’m living the dream. And the fact that I actually might be pregnant is not helping. Three kids is already a handful. Now four? I answer their questions and make them short and spicy. All I want to do is go home and cuddle with Drake (my basket-ball playing husband), but after this I have a photo shoot and then I have to do some contract signing.

            The one hour drive to the photo shoot is now over and it’s time to make me look sassy. 3 Hours of getting ready and putting on makeup really brings out your natural beauty. We’re taking pictures now and even though I look stunning, I feel so fake with all these layers of make-up covering who I really am and how I really look like. A lot of the pictures taken are going to be used for magazines. Yep, front cover.

From the time I recorded my first album at age 14, everyone knew that I would become one of the few young singer / songwriters who did not fit the status quo, but would become very successful through entertainment in my future years and look at me now! My songs had a poetic intensity that was not exactly at my age level.

After almost twenty years later, I’m 34 years old and I am now married and live in Atlanta Georgia with my amazing basket-ball playing husband Drake McCarty.

This past year has been the worst year of my 34 years of living! You must think I’m exaggerating or being dramatic, but believe me, I’m not. I don’t have much time for my children anymore because I’m becoming more popular. CD signing, photo shoots, blah, blah, blah. Did I mention that tonight I’m taking a flight to Vegas for the Gold tour with Group 1 Crew, Britt Nicole, and Royal Tailor? I’m going to be away for almost a month. Sometimes I just think that my children deserve better. A mother that can always be there for them. Drake says that it’s non-sense, but is it really? There are so many layers to my life and I do not always feel like a superstar. When depression hits, it hits hard. The bills that I have to pay, the cheques that I have to sign. It’s funny how I used to wonder how people get in rehab.

This album is probably the most confessional record I ever made. “Listen” was my fourth release on Gerrette Records that I believe shows and reveals the most about me, my life, and the struggles and triumphs I’ve been through and am going through.
