Danity Kane, the 5-member girl band starring in Making the Band 3 (produced by P. Diddy), recently hit #17 with their single "Show Stopper," with virtually no radio play. Apparently, the five highest-debuting singles of 2006 are all by television reality stars, according to Billboard — that would include singles by Ashley Parker, Taylor Hicks, Katharine McPhee, and Paris Hilton.
So hey, if you’ve got a band, it’s time to start your own reality TV show. Or, as Joe Taylor points out, if you don’t have P. Diddy’s financial clout, you can try brand-building and relationship-forming on a smaller scale with blogs, newsletters, or video clips. …Which is what sites like MySpace and YouTube are all about, I guess. Eh. Who wants a camera following you around 24/7 anyway?]]>
