Videos And The New Video Stars

MTV hasn’t been all about music videos for some time now. Now fans are making the videos. “So what do music fans do when they have cheap cameras and an easy way to share their work with other fans? They sing cover versions of their favorite songs, or show off their lip-synching skill, or do silly little dances. On YouTube this means that artists sometimes end up competing with their own fans.”
