Super Stars 2.0

Please meet the new Super stars 2.0. Regardless of if they are fake or real, they have managed to capture an audience.

The controversy has been huge; was Lonelygirl15 a legitimate work of pre-commercial art or a manipulative attack on the authenticity of community media sharing? Site favorite Brookers has signed a deal with NBC after making less than 30 videos.

It's a great success for YouTube, and the new Entertainet business. I believe it's just the beginning. YouTube - and like - will step up the competition for new talents, viewers and commercials (big money).
