Nowadays, everything seems to be at an arm's reach, thanks to the Internet. Distant places, favorite music, world events, you name it! 5oosh (say "five-oosh") capitalizes on this 21st century omni-connectivity by bridging fans and talent via its purpose-built "engagement platform". You might say that doesn't sound much different than posting a Facebook message on their profile, but let's not kid ourselves, that will never work with Taylor Swift, right? Your love letter will get lost among the sea of millions like it!

That's where 5oosh goes to intervene. It gives fans chances to win one-on-one sessions (chats, video talks, and other types of connectivity) with celebrities in a bidding auction. Yep, you'll have to pay, but the starting prices aren't outrageous or anything. For example, personal styling tips by YouTube starlette Acacia Brinley start from $1, and so does a personal advice seance with lifestyle coach Jeffrey Marsh. If you don't want to get up close and personal with a certain somebody someone, but a friend or relative of yours would give it all for that, you can order a personalized pre-recorded message for them and blow their minds. Or do the very same by purchasing personalized merchandise from their favorite celebrities.

Also, interactions between fans and celebrities are recorded and can be shared via Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, and other social networks. Other fans can visit 5oosh and watch the show, experiencing the thrill together with you. Good stuff!

5oosh is available freely on Android, iOS, and the web.
