Here’s how fan projects have brought fandoms together


To celebrate the release of our ‘Fan Projects‘ website, we asked popular Miley Cyrus fan account,  @WeAdoreMiley, to share their opinions on the effect of fan projects on fandoms in general. Here’s how fan projects have brought you closer to your fellow fanboys and fangirls:

Typically, all fans have one goal in mind, and that’s to be the best fan out there. Who wouldn’t want to be recognized by their favorite celebrity and be followed by them, that’s awesome!

The term #BreakTheInternet emerged when fans and celebrities began doing outrageous things in an attempt to receive more success and recognition than any other fan base (myself included).

After all, every fanbase wants to be recognized as being the strongest, biggest, and most successful out there. In the last few years the battle between Taylor Swift, Selena Gomez, Miley Cyrus, One Direction, 5SOS, and Justin Bieber fandoms has been crazy. Fans have spent hours on the Internet voting for them to win competitions, tweeting hashtags and even buying merchandise.

Maximum Pop! would know a thing or two about that…

These fan projects brings fans together in a way that that has never been done before. Fan projects have allowed young kids the ability to express themselves in a comfortable environment with people who have the same interests. Pretty cool, right?

One of the most popular fan projects that fan bases do are buyouts. When a pretty cool celebrity releases a new album, all across the country their fans will meet at stores to buy every single album possible to make sure the album goes #1 on the charts. That is some serious dedication and whole lot of cash, but fans will do anything.

The internet has allowed people with similar interests to meet one another and join a community that allows each individual to completely be themselves. It also allows them to share their one of a kind personality with peers who are just as big fans.

I found my bestie off the internet and I’m sure I’m not the only one.

David is the Head of Content at Maximum Pop!

Having studied Russian and Spanish at the University of Leeds, David moved to Moscow to work in the education sector. Upon returning to UK soil, David initially immersed himself in the wonderful world of MP! as a music writer.

Now head of all things content, David takes being a music fanboy to a whole new level, and can often be found dancing like there's nobody watching to 'Shout Out To My Ex', obsessing over Lauren Jauregui and defending Taylor Swift's honour.

David once appeared on TV in Armenia. Apparently, "it was awesome".
