Where better to get advice for aspiring stars than the red carpet, right?

Actually, we found a place that’s slightly better: a red carpet event celebrating the launch of a Facebook game – Gig-It – where you create your own starry show, from wardrobe to stage.

Our lead New York City reporter, Gabi Hartman, and photographer Meghan Roberts hit the carpet last week at Gig-It’s launch event at the Capitale. They got some quick advice from a variety of musical stars just for you, our Live! Starring … You! fans who have red-carpet dreams. Give it look, see which tips stick in your mind (personally, I like T-Pain’s!) and make it work for you.

• Cody Simpson: “What I’ve learned is it’s always important to be humble and be respectful. I think that’s the best way to be. I always keep good people around me, and it’s important to remember when things do start to happen, always remember where you came from, always stay true to your family, always stay true to your roots.”

• Ne-Yo: “Keep it about the music and you’ll never go wrong.”

• Jeremih: “Stick with it, don’t quit it, go out and get it. That’s been my motto since I started.”

• Rick Ross: “Just go hard. Go hard …”

T-Pain

• Flo Rida: “Anything that you love, you give it your all. No pain, no gain. Myself, I wouldn’t be on without desperate measures, going all in, keeping my morals. Hard work pays off. No pain, no gain.”

• T-Pain: “Don’t listen to nobody! Anybody. Even if they’ve got advice. If it sounds good, that means it’s terrible. Just be you. If your music is good, if anything you do it good, it’s going to shine through regardless. You don’t need advice from anybody.”

Gabi Hartman and Meghan Roberts are both students at New York University. Gabi is an aspiring singer and Meghan is an actress and model.
