The internet deserves a great deal of credit for making YouTube stars and molding internet personalities. With this kind of instantaneous fame, people can do just about anything. Fashion bloggers are designing collections with high end designers. The world applauded a young teenage boy who stood up to his bully in a video that went viral in less than 24 hours. Then there are stars like Justin Bieber. Where would you really be without YouTube?
Even though the internet can be generous with its offerings, it’s important to remember that the people behind the screen won’t always be so welcoming. As I was going through my daily reads, I came across an article that will be appearing in next month’s Rolling Stone Magazine about Kirsten Ostrenga AKA Kiki Kannibal, a young girl known for her scene queen personality. As her internet celebrity status skyrocketed, the young girl developed both a following of fans and haters.
I actually had no idea who Kiki Kannibal was until reading this article nor do I understand how MySpace can foster celebrities like this, but I did find this article an extremely interesting read.
