Born on an island six thousand miles away, I'm now twenty-three and living my dream as a recording artist surrounded by the sun, sea, and celebrities of shiny Los Angeles. Sand in my toes, wind in my hair, and my friends by my side... What more could I ask for?
My new album has just been released and I am on top of the world. Everyone wants a piece of me. Party invites with the paparazzi chasing me to capture my every move. I am wearing the latest in fashion, my songs are moving to the top of the charts. I'm shining. I'm glowing. I'm loving every moment.
Hollywood isn't what I thought it would be. People aren't who I thought they would be. Hollywood isn't perfection: it's lies and loneliness hiding behind smiles and laughter. When the doors close and the lights dim, everything and everyone is fake. I don't know who I can trust, and I don't know what to believe. Sometimes, I don't even know who I am anymore.
I came here to make something of myself, to climb the highest mountain of fame possible, to find real love . . . but at what cost?
Life is all about balance and with the darkness comes light. I have my family and best girlfriends to keep me grounded, and a certain blue-eyed man I can't seem to get off my mind, my life is starting to look like a California dream. Things are heating up around here, and for the first time in my life, I'm the one with the power. Or am I?
