LOS ANGELES, Jan. 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Buzznet, the web's largest social magazine written for youth by youth, is thrilled to announce a partnership with Estonian recording artist Kerli. Known for her positive message and eclectic "Bubble Goth" style, Kerli will now call Buzznet home for her official blog at kerli.buzznet.com. Fans can communicate directly with the artist and read the latest updates from Kerli herself, making her relationship with her fans across the globe stronger and more intimate than ever before.
Speaking directly to her fans, Kerli said, "The MoonChild Academy is moving to Buzznet. We've already shared quite an amazing journey so far, but I know it's only going to get better. I am so proud to know all of you -- smart, creative and kind -- and am so honored to be one of the Moon Children. I hope you're ready for the ride, I know I sure am."
The blog not only focuses on her everyday life, but is a community where fans can share thoughts and ideas and have a direct connection with Kerli – all on a personal level. Utilizing Buzznet's unique publishing and community tools, fans can use their own Buzznet profiles to contribute content inspired by Kerli, comment on posts, send messages to Kerli, discover and follow likeminded bloggers and more. Frequent giveaways, DIY tutorials and a weekly advice column are just a few of the features fans can expect, making her new blog a special and personal experience for followers.
"Kerli has been part of the Buzznet community since headlining our South by Southwest party last year," said Annie Fox, Buzznet's General Manager. "We have stayed close to her and her team ever since, so this partnership is a natural next step in the relationship we've been building. We are thrilled to officially welcome her to the Buzznet family, and we know her fans are too."
Hailing from Elva, Estonia, a tiny, then-Soviet occupied town of 5,000 people in the forest, Kerli always dreamed that her passion for music and performing would allow her to break out of her restricted origins and literally change the world. Her journey began when, at 14, she competed in and won the Baltic's version of "American Idol," which ultimately led to her signing with Island Def Jam. Since then, she has received prestigious awards and millions of video views, held the #1 position on the Billboard dance charts and garnered over 200,000 Facebook fans. She was also handpicked by Tim Burton to appear on the Alice in Wonderland soundtrack. In addition to being a celebrated artist and performer, she is also a sought after songwriter. Her recent credits include Demi Lovato's hit single "Skyscraper." Kerli is now primed for huge success as she and her label gear up for her long-anticipated 2012 album release.
