People Can Be Selfish and Mean as Hell…to struggling artists!


Where would great artists like, Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, Diana Ross, Pink Floyd, James Brown, Prince and more be if not one person gave them a second glance, a first listen, or A LITTLE HELP?!

Probably NOWHERE?!

So, you probably think I’m about to start calling some people out and inserting random curse words. But don’t fear…I’m not…Jane’s World is a positive happy space. ;))

What I am going to say is something simple…while I do not believe in spamming people to death with invitations to all of my music/videos/pics/events/shows/appearances etc I do believe for some artists it is an effective method. So I don’t knock the hustle, and if someone has enough time to @ everyone on their follower list and click the name of every single Facebook Friend more power to them.


I want to speak to everyone who has been on the receiving end of these invitations…Ponder this for a moment:

There are people that spend all of their days and entire life trying to reach ONE goal. Sometimes all they need is that extra support from a family member, friend, or random stranger.

Perhaps they are at 199 TWITTER followers and need 1 more to make it to 200, events like these in the eyes of a starving artist are magnum! In the mind of some new artists, 200 followers makes them that much closer to achieving their dreams.

We as the receivers of these messages hold the power in our hands to actually HELP someone get closer to their goals FREE & with the click of a mouse. Although it sounds minimal, that one click can help an artist increase their websites hits, followers, friends, or get attention from a distribution/label or just help them increase their buzz etc.

Now i do understand that sometimes we may not be inclined to click a suggested link that reads “LISTEN TO MY SMASH SINGLE:SHAKE MY BOOTAY FT. LITTLE DIRT SCUMBAG” but I’m saying having a heart! show some good neighborly coexistent type of behavior and freely support.

Although Little Dirt Scumbag may be light years away from a Grammy. At least you have helped him achieved some bragging rights for his homies back home.

Every little bit counts….besides where would great artists like, Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, Diana Ross, and more be if not one person gave them a second glance, a first listen, or A LITTLE HELP?!
