(Vocus/PRWEB) March 24, 2011
The Internet has played a pivotal role in people’s lives, affecting them socially, politically and, even more significantly, on a cultural level. The onset of the online world has also paved the way for the rise of the ‘video viral’. These online video sensations have now become an Internet necessity in the rise of any cultural phenomenon – aiming to get millions of the world’s online population logging on, clicking, watching and leaving their views.
The emotional power of video has also propelled people into the realm of superstardom from their humble beginnings and simple humdrum life. One figure that has the online video world to thank for his meteoric rise to stardom is none other than young pop sensation Justin Bieber. This rising musical star from Canada has had over one billion hits on YouTube with hits such as ‘Baby’ and ‘Somebody to Love’ making him an online phenomenon.
Bieber Fever has grown out of control and fans across the world continue to fall under this young boy’s spell. Some argue society has not witnessed fans’ passion on such an insane level for an artist since ‘Beatlemania’ invaded the music scene back in the 1960s.
