This article is about a singer named Tila Nguyen who became famous last year for having 1.7 million friends on myspace. She is now trying to break into the mainstream music industry with her song I love you that is produced by rapper Lil Jon. They are trying to find out what the social networking and the music sales and see if they both have anything to do with each other. They are also trying to see if it will help boost her popularity. Myspace is known for so many bands posting their music, and trying to be known and become famous. Ms. Tequila has rejected many offers by record companies, and hopes to get famous by myspace alone. They are a few things that make them nervous with trying it out because it has never been done before. Now they will get to know her and her music. The only difference with her is that she does not have a history as a recording artist online that matches her popularity as a personality online. They are reluctant, but hope that everything works out just fine.
I think that Myspace is very addictive. I have one, and I am on it constantly. There are so many different things that you can do on there. Some things are like searching music, looking at new pictures, leaving comments, bulletins. Although I must say that everyone thinks just because they post their band they are going to become famous in 2 weeks. I know of one band that I read in a recent article of Rolling Stone did that and now they are known worldwide. The band is named Panic! At the Disco! I love them. Even though they said it hasn't been done the band said part of their fame came from myspace. I am just saying that because she is popular by her looks, and personality does not mean that she is also going to win them over when it comes to music. Myspace is for friends, and people to communicate easier and quicker. It is also used for music but not to really put yourself out there like some people tend to do. All I am saying is that not everyone can be a star overnight. Myspace is not the way to go about doing it, but if that is the way she wants it then what does she have to lose? Myspace has also become a huge deal in the media. People use it for everything it seems like. Advertising things, bands, jobs anything and everything you can imagine. It is a shame that we are all looking on myspace now for entertainment value and for many other purposes.
