Idol life is tough. There you are, sitting on a chair in a fake backyard by a fake white picket fence, holding a fake ice-cream made by food stylists with coloured frosting and powdered sugar, shooting a promotional music video. The video shoot sure is dragging on, it’s 4AM and you’ve been awake for 26 hours straight, yet it’s your duty to look alert and extra cheerful for the cameras – what a chore. You sure wish you were doing something else, but this is what being an idol is and you’re stuck with it for now. On take 153 of your lines in verse 2, a thought pops into your mind… but what could it be?
“CUT!” the director yells. He gets up from his chair and walks over to you. “Raina, can’t you concentrate? Come on, we need the perfect take this time, let’s do it again. Take 154, people! Come on, let’s do this! ACTION!” You sigh internally and try not to let it show. It’s going to be a long shoot.
