London: Singing sensation Madonna says with the help of social media people can easily become overnight celebrities.
The 58-year-old “Vogue” hitmaker feels musicians are too “focused on fame” and therefore spend less time in improving themselves as an artist, reported Femalefirst.
“I was already famous before social media, so for me fame isn’t the burden. Fame is the manifestation or the by-product of my work, and that was two decades before social media.
“Now to me the burden is people are more focused on fame than actually doing the work or being an artist. Now it’s easy to become famous. What isn’t easy is to develop and grow as an artist without being distracted or consumed with fame,” Madonna said.
The singer said she is more of an artist than a pop act as she tries her best to make her work is revolutionary for her fans.
“I don’t consider myself a pop act, I consider myself an artist. And it’s an artist’s responsibility to be revolutionary in our work. It’s our responsibility, our duty and our privilege,” she said. PTI
