So I would like to know where do you get to know about new celebrities from?

From a particular website?

From friends?

From YouTube?

From word of mouth?

Usually when I hear about a new celebrity that's on the rise or probably someone that I've never heard of, the first thing I do is Google him/her. Then I go to Youtube to watch a music video of him/her (if possible). If there isn't a music video, I go visit the celebrity's biography on the music websites such as Yahoo or MTV probably.

Mostly a combination of Twitter, Facebook and general word of mouth through conventional media such as newspapers/TV (although most of those get their stuff through the aforementioned 'new' media).

Twitter seems to be the biggest launchpad for new celebrities due to the relative ease for things to go 'viral' within an instant; Facebook is where my offline friends here about stuff first, and in the chance that it hasn't been absorbed by Twitter, I'll find it there. Conventional media normally says stuff that would appeal to an older crowd, due to their reduced presence on social networking websites... but this is becoming rarer nowadays.

I usually "stalk" their Twitter, Facebook, YouTube. The usual.

It's a combination of all of them, but if anything, I get the most celebrity news from magazines. I'm HOOKED on celebrity gossip magazines. I can't help myself! X) I think my friends get the news from me, haha. Very sad.
