Do you think artists should connect with their fans via social media or leave up the wall between performer and audience?
Personally, I think that it is the artist’s choice. If they are not comfortable with interacting with fans then they should keep it to a minimum.
I love it when I hear from people that I admire on Twitter or Facebook; however, the interactions are genuine. Who wants their favorite celebrity to act fake when they are talking you one on one? No one does. Fake is just icky.
This guy from Miss May I keeps it pretty real. He was so nice about signing my pink autograph book. He even commented on how many signatures are in it. At last count, I think there are at least 25 but I’ve had it since 1983.
