Leading Creative Programming and Sound Design for the show, the Super Bowl is not new to Mr. Evans, who worked with Beyoncé on her legendary 2013 Super Bowl Halftime performance.

A dominant figure in the music industry for over twenty years, Devine Evans got his start in Atlanta under the watchful eye of Left Eye Productions. Mr. Evans is now a five-time Grammy Award winning Producer, Songwriter / Engineer, and an Emmy Nominated Composer (The New Edition Story), who has worked with many of the world’s biggest recording artists and musicians including; The Chain Smokers, Janet Jackson, Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, Rihanna, Justin Timberlake, Britney Spears, Pharrell Williams, Lady Gaga, Jessie J, Ariana Grande, Bruno Mars, Hans Zimmer, and Selena Gomez, among more.

Letter From the Editor

The following video is from my  dear friend Dr. Terry Cole Whittaker; New York Times Best Selling Author of “What You Think of Me is None of My Business,” spiritual teacher, and law of attraction expert.

In this video, Dr. Terry Cole Whittaker wisely reminds us to  love ourselves, as we hope to be loved, which includes to also talk well to ourselves and about ourselves within the thoughts that we think.

As we love ourselves, and treat ourselves with the respect that we demand from others, so too can we better love others, and give them pure and genuine communication, love, and care.

I have interviewed, worked with, and met many of the most beautiful and talented people on the planet, and too often, many of them beat themselves up mentally and emotionally, as they are used to suffering, and addiction to pain, and a feeling of being unworthy.  In turn, they take this warped and abusive sense of self out on others, in many times damaging and destructive ways.

Take some time each day to ground yourself. Love and appreciate yourself for who you are, where you are, and why you are.  Forgive yourself, and accept yourself.

And, in this modern world where politics and too much of culture has devolved even more in to hatred, animosity, and crass behavior, realize that it feels better to be happy, and that you deserve to be happy. Realize that that it’s cool to be kind, and you deserve kindness done upon you from yourself and to yourself by others. And–give kindness to others, you will be glad you did.

Enjoy the new issue, explore all the pages on the table of contents to the left of this page, and write us here on the front page and let us know what you think.

With love from Hollywood,

How to Succeed In Hollywood

Bruce Edwin is CEO of the A-list firm Starpower Management LLC, publisher of The Hollywood Sentinel, and also a film producer. His services, based on his years of expertise and success in the music and film industry are sought out and used by some of the most powerful companies and stars in entertainment. This ongoing article series, a precursor to his upcoming book, is his way of giving back to models, actors and bands, with free education- that in its totality and with its unabashed honesty- cannot not be found anywhere else. Free.

1, Never trust anyone completely.  In Hollywood, loyalty is often received by the person paying out the most money or making someone the biggest star the fastest, and even then one may get screwed.

2, Always get everything in writing, and don’t consider it valid unless it is in writing. Even then, remember, contracts are only as good as the people that sign them. If you don’t trust them, don’t sign.

3, If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is, unless it can be proven otherwise.

4, Be aware that the more successful you get, or even the more successful people ‘think’ you are, the more haters you will have, and the more there will be psychos and creeps lurking in the sewers plotting to try attack you–even when things seem nice and calm.  Bigger success or bigger ‘perceived’ success equals being a bigger target.

5, Have a good lawyer who knows entertainment law, and be ready to defend yourself when necessary.

6,  Never trust a junkie, or anyone whose eyes are spinning in circles like in those cartoons.

7, Never trust anyone or deal with anyone who brags about screwing people over, breaking contracts, or talking bad about everyone behind their back.

8, Never take too much advice from anyone who is less successful than you are.  Granted, we can learn from anyone, but choose your mentors wisely. We are reflection of the company we keep.

9, Don’t deal with anyone who is always making excuses, always late, or never shows up.

10, Don’t deal with a hothead person with a bad temper. One day, it will be  you they go off on and by then, it may be too late.

11, Be wary of someone who has sued a lot of people. Typically, these types are low life losers out to try make a fast buck or trying to get rich quick by abusing the legal system.

12,  Never deal with a liar. Those who are dishonest in word are generally dishonest in their actions too.

13, Read Books on how to do business and how to succeed in life. Read books about Hollywood and how it works. Read self help books such as “How to Win Friends and Influence People,” “Think and Grow Rich,” “The Four Agreements,” and “The Power of Now.” Train your mind and educate yourself daily.

14, Treat others how you yourself would like to be treated.

15, Be forgiving. If you are a malicious person who fails to forgive, be very aware that your karma will come back to crush you sooner or later–probably sooner.

I hope this has helped many of you. As always, if you have any questions, you are invited to contact me at the front page of this site.
