MTV's "Becoming" is creepy as fuck.

For those not familiar with the show, they take a young fan, and have them "become" their favourite musician (Madonna, Avril Lavigne, Pink, etc.).

They don't ever meet the star, but they go through the star's makeup artist, hairdresser, wardrobe, etc. If they're really lucky, they get a letter from the star! Ooh!

I find it creepy because it shows such blind image worship, while dehumanizing the artist. Madonna isn't a woman, she's a construct of makeup, choreography, fashion, etc.

Yes I agree Madonna is not a woman, Mercedes Lordes is (I think thats her name)

At least on Much Music's You're going to meet a rock star you really do. My favourite was the kid from Labradour City who wanted to meet Korn.
