|We asked the following artists if LOOKS COUNT IN THE HMI. We wanted to know HOW IMPORTANT OF A ROLE does LOOKS play in the success of a band in the hmi. This is what each one of them told me.
*BRUTUS (ZENGLEN): "LOOKS are important. That is the FIRST IMPRESSION that people get of you, which might lead to them deciding on giving you a chance in terms of them following you. Sometimes if a band or artist looks good, they might be given a better chance at impressing certain people. Yo ka bal plis kredi tou. LOOK LA plays a very big role in the hmi. I would say 30/40%. However, I must say that TALENT counts a lot as well."
*STANLEY (CARIMI drummer): "IT'S VERY IMPORTANT. Looks count whether people like it or not. FANS make it a factor, and sometimes they don't even realize that they are doing it. It does play a factor in how popular a band is, but to keep it real, it must be a combination of things. With the way our society is right now. Does LOOK play a factor. HELL YEAH. The ladies prove it time and time again."
*OLIVIER (TVICE) :"It depends on people. Looks count, but the guy with the look has to have talent as well. Fok li fe yon ti danser, yon ti chanter. LOOKS are NOT really THAT important, BUT li important quand meme. LOOK LA GIN IMPORTANCE LI. Someone can be very talented, but because he lacks THE LOOK, he might not get the attention that he deserves. At the same time, the guy might have the look and have no talent. LOOKS ARE IMPORTANT somewhat, but you have to have the talent or some talent to back it up."
