Have you been judged on looks?
Miley Cyrus or Susan Boyle?
Boston - There has always been a frenzy of people in the entertainment field who spend countless hours trying to perfect that "look!" That look being whatever makes a person appear that they look young! The public reads hundreds of magazine articles daily about youth enhancing formulas and anti-aging products that keep everyone beautiful and young looking! What does Science say about these youth enhancing products and about age prediction? Can anyone really know the true age of a person just by looking at them? Susan Boyle is a performer who has alot of media attention lately. Her talent is measured daily by other contestants who use not only talent but age as a competitive agent to assist them in their attempt to win a talent competition. Would Boyle have a shoe in if she was someone who looked like Miley Cyrus? Would she do much better if her personality was like Marilyn Monroe's image? Sometimes knowing a person closely is the only way to assess talent and maturity but maturity is no predictor of age. See how good your skills are. Try and guess how old this boy is by his "look." Should he enter "American Idol" or "Britian's Got Talent "show and win the show because he has that cute, young sought after look? Soon we will see what it takes to become famous for an older woman and what it takes to succeed in one area of the entertainment business, but I doubt if looks will have anything to do with it!
