This explains why Indians look up to breakout singer Jay Sean.
Jay Sean was born as the usual Indian kid. Good grades, good lifestyle, average family, and going to grow up to become the usual doctor, lawyer, or engineer. However no one predicted him to be one of the most popular breakout singer, with his American debut single “Down” featuring Cash Money Entertainment labelmate Lil’ Wayne.
Now there are many Indian kids who are trying to break out of the stereotypical “loser and geek” lifestyles who want to become singers, dancers, or the jobs that their parents don’t want them to do. One of my close friends has explained that he wants to be like Jay Sean and wants to stop studying and instead lift weights and get ripped. Honestly I have seen that of many kids in school, the popular kids tend not to be Indian. Why? Because they are more focused on getting good grades. However, with more talented people like Jay Sean rising up, Indians will be able to secure mre “popular” roles in the world.
*NOTE – If this article sounds racist, I am sorry, but these were the types of feelings that some of my Indian friends have told me about and I want people to realize how they feel about it.
