04 May A Star on the Rise
Michael Star is definitely a star on the rise. At such a young age he has accomplished more than some adults have. With such drive, determination, ambition and of course talent there is no doubt in mind that this young man’s name will go down as one of the best to ever do it. -Mz. Fierce
Fierce: For those who are not familiar with you can you please introduce yourself?
Michael: My name is Michael Star and I am a 16 year old singer and dancer.
Fierce: At a very young age you begin to sing. When did you know that this was what you wanted to do for the rest of your life?
Michael: Well at the age of 8 I was in a musical and there was a talent development company that taught me the basis of stage presence. I was focused on it and by the age of 12 or 13 I had my first single “Party All Night “and from there I started to do shows.
Fierce: Who are some of the artist that you look up to?
Michael: James Brown , The Temptations, Chris Brown, Justin Bieber, and Prince. Some of the legends and some of the new cats but basically the legends are who I look up to as far as artistry and stage presence.
Fierce: For such a young person that has accomplished so much and is still going, do you ever take the time to just sit back and take it all in? Does it amaze you at times?
Michael: It does amaze me but then again there are many more things to accomplish and this is only the beginning. It’s a learning process and its still going on.
Fierce: Do you ever feel that you are missing anything?
Michael: Sometimes I feel lonely. I hang with my friends on the weekend and we go to the movies and do the normal things but then we find ourselves singing a tune. We can’t just hang out without music being involved.
Fierce: How would you describe your style of artistry if you could be categorized?
Michael: That’s hard because I don’t like to put myself in a box. I am very artistic. I am very uplifting even when I perform. I just see myself on stage as a Michael Jackson and Chris Brown mixed with old school and Beyoncé’s energy I just see myself as an energized artist in the pop world.
Fierce: You are also an actor as well as a young CEO. How do you balance all of this out?
Michael: Its really not a balance. It just comes together. Its in my schedule for studio time, for my acting, for business, I have everything scheduled out.
Fierce: Do you ever have time to just be “normal”?
Michael: Yeah everyday. I think everyone is normal. We all wake up, we all laugh. I play games here and there and I talk to my friends. I think the only thing that sets us apart is what we do with our time.
Fierce: How does your family feel about your success thus far?
Michael: They are very proud of me. My mom is very helpful and they push me to help me succeed and to remain humble in this business.
Fierce: When listening to your music, what do you want your audience to feel or possibly say about you as an artist?
Michael: I just want them to have fun and stay happy when they listen to me. I want a happy show when they come to see me perform.
Fierce: What would you like your legacy to be?
Michael: Wow. I don’t really like to put the legend title but at the end of the day I want my family to live great off of my music. I just want my family and I to be able to eat and be happy and just living good. So legendary status I do hope for but as long as I am able to take care of my family I am good.
Fierce: Where can we find your music?
Michael: Find me on soundcloud and reverbnation, iammichaelstar and my social media name is iammichaelstar on Twitter and Instagram.
Fierce: Is there anything you would like to say to your fans and supporters?
Michael: Yes just stay tuned. My new single coming soon and the video as well.
