The last few weeks have been tough for me and the Artist-On-Artist interview is a unique way for me to communicate with my fans, it's something I really appreciate.

"The unique nature of the Artist-On-Artist series, creates a 'fly on a wall' experience for our users," said Josh Brooks, VP of Content and Programming, MySpace. "These exclusive interviews have become so popular in our video channel that we wanted to create a unique community dedicated to specifically showcasing these viral video interviews."

"The last few weeks have been tough for me and the Artist-On-Artist interview is a unique way for me to communicate with my fans, it's something I really appreciate."

Each Artist-On-Artist interview is housed on the artists' personal MySpace page and/ or music profile page in addition to the highly trafficked MySpace Video home page. Relevant artists will engage in interviews based on the response of the MySpace community, current events as well as upcoming music, film, and fashion news.
