Welcome to the forums!

Is this sentence from a text book? I ask because the Spanish used is not ideal.
Also, I only see one blank in your sentence. Were there others?

Are there any hints to help you figure out what belongs in the blank I see?
You chose the verb 'live'. What made you choose that verb and what conjugation did you use? Write the sentence with your choice in it so we can see it.

By the way, 'bueno' doesn't mean happy.

This is my instructions
Ser y estar
Justin Bieber is sharing some information about other celebrity characters during an interview. Use your knowledge of ser and estar to complete the following sentences.
1. Yo ___ un cantante bueno

2. y ___ en Hollywood.

I picked soy for the first one with was right and then I chose vive for second because it ends the sentence with and lives in Hollywood.

It looks like you should choose only between 'ser' and 'estar'. The second answer is a conjugated form of one of these verbs.

The conjugated verb 'vive' doesn't work for a first-person subject.

If you want to know how to conjugate the verb 'estar' in the present indicative tense, just enter 'estar' in the box that contains 'Search...' (in the upper right-hand corner of the page). Then change 'Dictionary' to 'Conjugations' and hit 'enter' (or click on the search icon).
All the possible conjugations of the verb are then presented. You'll select from the 'Presente del indicativo' (present indicative) list. The subject pronouns help you to find the correct one.
Check it out!
