The Upcoming Death Of People Magazine (Or What time is the Angelina Jolie Webcast?)
What if Angelina Jolie had a one minute videocast everyday telling you what was going on in her life?
Her spin on the Jennifer, Brad and the kids.
Think anybody would watch?
In fact it's what's keeping some of them relevent.
Moby blogs almost everyday. He talks about everything from music to politics to how hot it is in NYC.
Thomas Dolby blogs all the time.
Barbra Striesand issues statements on her website.
What we are seeing are walls tumbling down.
The media used to act as a wall between you and celebrities.
Smart celebrities are realizing that there is no need for it.
Just like smart companies are sidestepping ads and communicating directly with their audience, so are some celebrities.
Alvin Toffler called what's happening a powershift.
Power is moving from them to you.
And Nobody can stop it.
It's going to run over every institution that exists.
Even People Magazine.
