Glued to the tube
For people who know me, I don’t watch a lot of television (I hope my street cred didn’t just dropped a notch!). But don’t get me wrong. I love watching Gossip Girls and I do enjoy Keeping Up with the Kardashians but recently, I tend to take most of my entertainment to the internet or more specifically,Youtube, simply because I hate channel surfing just to find something I enjoy watching. And I have to admit that I spend an unhealthy amount of time just watching the channels of my favourite Youtube artistes.
Here’re some of my favourites videos:
J Rice – Fight (A song he composed - Really talented guy!)
Boyce Avenue – Yellow
Jayesslee – Price Tag
I think Youtube is great because it provides a platform for people like me who enjoys a wider range of entertainment – be it mainstream acts or indie talents. More importantly, it provides opportunities for a nobody to become a somebody, as long as they have what it takes! If you are wondering why I’m saying this, flip to 118 of the April issue of CLEO where we investigate the rise of Youtube celebrities and why it's great that anyone can become famous. Plus, we tell you who are the up and coming sensations to look out for in 2012.
And in case you haven’t heard, a Youtube concert is coming to Singapore! It will feature some of the biggest Youtube acts such as Jason Chen, Tiffany Alvord and Joseph Vincent who each have more than 200000 subscribers to their Youtube channels.
The concert takes place on May 5, 2012 at The Coliseum Resorts World Sentosa from 7pm to 10pm.
