Is It Any Good?
From snafus on stage to finding someone to fall in love with, the voyeuristic series offers an intimate look into the life of a young woman who has reached international stardom. It reveals many of the challenges that comes with her lifestyle, including being away from her family, having to cope with the media, and the exhaustion that comes with working so hard.
