Nick Lachey Dishes on His Career, Gives Advice on the Industry


Nick Lachey

Unfortunately for him, Nick Lachey is probably best known for his role in Newlyweds and his marriage to Jessica Simpson. But now with a new album coming out and a role as executive producer for the new MTV show Taking the Stage, Nick is growing up and really progressing in his career. He sat down with Life & Style Magazine, and here are some highlights:

“I don’t think you can expect to make money anymore in the music industry. You do it because you love to do it. I love to sing; I have no expectations on a business level. You put your best foot forward and be proud. The record business has been on a downward spiral for a long time.”

“I tell people all of the time, the biggest thing is don’t take no for answer. In 98 Degrees we were trying to get a record deal or just an answer or response with our first album. If we took no for answer, we would have packed it in immediately. But we didn’t. You can’t let it discourage you. It’s a demoralizing industry to your psyche, but you have to believe in your training.”
