One of the questions I like to ask artists is how/if the dynamic of "American Idol" and it's success, MySpace and YouTube factors into their whole plan of marketing and selling records. The answer is always very interesting when artists are either really seasoned or don't have a big internet following.
I said it before, Amy Winehouse and her camp are gonna run with this marketing plan until her next CD.
On her first single she wasn't going to rehab, so even though reports came in that she checked into rehab after a video of her smoking from a funny looking pipe surfaced... her peeps have declared. AMY IS NOT IN REHAB!
This time around on "Making the Band", you've got Danity Kane (whom I interviewed this morning), the guys (or boys as D. Woods refers to them) and Donnie are all living in the same house and all recording albums at the same time. Diddy must be happy as a pig in ish for all the drama they must have gotten on film.
