How about, get famous for actually doing something that no one else can do? Get famous for being "talented"
Let’s not get famous for just being famous, YouTube or not.

Bein' in the "music business" section, it's worth saying that buying likes or clicks is very ineffective from a business point of view: the cash is supposed to come in, not get out.

But then we're musicians so mostly that doesn't happen anyways.. :D
