Rockstar Health & Fitness With Lindsey Stirling  0

Some people are blessed with a talent that seems to come from another world. Since I have been fortunate to work in the music business, I get the opportunity to meet people with this type of talent. Recently, I’ve been working with the incredibly talented musician, Lindsey Stirling. Lindsey is a violin player, the type of artist you want at your party… and to hang out with on weekends.

A few things to know about Lindsey….she has more YouTube subscribers than Katy Perry or Justin Timberlake, with over 730 million views. She had the #1 debut album on it’s release week….plus, she sells out tours around the world, and has the ability to make the violin sing directly into your soul.

We are currently promoting her new single “Shatter Me” (featuring Lzzy Hale from Halestorm on vocals) at radio. Having spent a lot of time with Lindsey, I have identified a couple of reasons why she is connecting to the public on such a massive scale: First, her unbelievable talent and second, the interviews she gives inspire me. The combo of talent and inspiration is certainly working!

After she was publicly humiliated on national TV a few years ago, she never gave up, and came back to prove her critics wrong. Lindsey is living proof that the power of believing in yourself, despite the critics, will take you to a life beyond your wildest dreams!! She also is incredibly healthy and lives a clean, toxic-free lifestyle. Find out what she told me about her healthy secrets, here…on another Rockstar Health & Fitness Extra:

BIG SEAN-Born To Be Famous  0

Big Sean webSome people are destined to be superstars. It’s part of their DNA; you feel it. Having spent most of my life in the music business, I have been fortunate to meet many people with this quality as I work with some of the biggest artists in the world and help break new talent.

I met the talented and incredibly charming Big Sean a few years ago, and he has since been one of my favorite hip hop artists.  He started rapping when he was twelve years old, and by high school, he was winning competitions. A chance encounter with Kanye West, who agreed to hear the teenager freestyle, catapulted him into the big leagues. His 2011 debut album, Finally Famous, entered the Top 5 on the Billboard Hot 100 –  his single, My Last, featuring Chris Brown, was a #1 smash!  He has also been featured on Justin Bieber’s As Long As You Love Me and several other recent radio hits. Big Sean’s career has exploded over the last two years, and so has his social media presence: he has 3.2 million Facebook fans, 4.2 million Twitter followers, one million Instagram followers, over 50 million views on YouTube, and more than 400 million views on Vevo. Big Sean just released his new single, Beware, featuring Lil Wayne and Jhene Aiko, to rave reviews. It is the first single off his new album, Hall Of Fame, which was released on August 27.

Big Sean has been a featured guest on my KIIS-FM interview series, Rockstar Health & Fitness Extra, and we have had several conversations about his healthy secrets. He had a great start on the health bandwagon from his mom. I met her at The Grammys; she is beautiful and lives a very healthy lifestyle. She taught him at a young age about superfoods, vitamins, and working out. He continues to follow her advice by taking plenty of vitamins, enzymes, probiotics, fish oil, and other supplements. As for working out, boxing is his favorite way to keep in shape; being in the boxing ring with his trainer helps to develop more endurance for his performances, especially when touring.

“I try to work out as much as possible, although sometimes it is difficult with my hectic schedule. But whenever I do, I function better, which makes life better,” explains Big Sean.

Big Sean also mixes in some weight training, and when he’s traveling, his high energy performances provide additional cardio exercise. He only eats organic food, and his favorite healthy vegetarian meal is a salad with organic greens and eggs. This is his favorite quick and easy recipe:

  • Chop up some organic romaine lettuce, tomato, red peppers, and asparagus.
  • Add a splash of balsamic vinaigrette dressing, and mix.
  • Top the salad with a chopped hard-boiled egg. (Non vegetarians: Add sliced warm grilled organic chicken, if you desire.)
  • Serve.
